  1. Oooh.. Alright. Why isn't that placed near the brush size / Opacity stuff? In my opinion; poor design to place it all over there. Looks less important. So what's the point with the "More" menu then? For the record; it works now.
  2. You mean this? Of course. If there's anything else; I've no idea where to find it.
  3. Hi, I am on Designer 1.7.1.404 Pen pressure doesn't work with the vector brush. If I switch to pixel persona it works with the brush there. I'm at a loss of what to do. It should be intuitive and simple: More button -> select Pressure to drive Size variance. I have tried size variance at anything between 0% to 100% I have tried to enable and disable Windows Ink in the Wacom settings as well. Can anyone help me?

    While that is a workaround, it’s just that, a workaround, to a problem that shouldn’t be a problem at all. Besides, it’s not free. It adds a watermark to the image (according to their website at least), and the license is $30 or so. Could you imagine if we weren’t able to export PDF from Publisher, but could export to SVG, and had to find a third party solution to convert to PDF? It’s the same thing with TGA for us. It’s plain and simple a requirement for us.
  5. A photo library management tool/feature would be most welcome. I've previously used Bridge instead of Lightroom, I just didn't click with it. Bridge is really fast at what it does, and I'd love to see Affinity's take on something like it, and have it closely tied to Photo, where I could be able to copy-paste raw development settings from one photo to a bunch of others in a second.
  6. Great, hope they figure out something. Or perhaps could team up with nVidia (and possibly AMD if it behaves the same with Freesync) to make G-sync switched OFF by default when you install a new driver, for this app specifically. I think it is possible in the nvidia control panel, all though I switched it off globally.
  7. After fiddling a lot with GPU drivers (creator vs gaming drivers and versions of those) G-sync was disabled by accident, and I noticed the lagging was gone. So after a bit more testing I found out that when G-sync is set to work with windowed mode too, it became an issue with Affinity. The reason I thought it was an Affinity problem especially, and with Threadripper is I had recently built a brand new computer, and Affinity were the only apps that had this issue. 3D, video, compositing and other photo apps have not had this lagging issue at all. I tried recording it, but in the videos it played fine, which also goes to tell that it was a G-sync issue, not Affinity directly. Conclusion: enable G-sync only for full screen mode.
  8. Just to keep you updated; I did try 1.7, there was no difference. The mouse lags/stutters like crazy. It's like going from 60 fps to 20 or even 15 fps. If I click and drag to use a tool within the canvas, it improves a little bit, but a lot of the operation is within the layer window, the toolbox, going through menus for brushes, colors etc, not only the canvas.
  9. Sure, I can try 1.7 later today.
  10. Mouse. I have a tablet too (Wacom Intuos 5) but haven't installed the drivers yet, thus not used it. The mouse is a Logitech G502.
  11. I recently built a new computer with a Threadripper 2920x CPU, except for that the rest of the system is exactly like the previous; 128GB RAM, RTX 2080 Ti and loads of storage capacity. The only difference between the old and the new is the old had an i7 5960x. The performance difference between these two computers in Affinity Designer and Photo is extremely disappointing. I searched a little bit and found similar discoveries with the previous generation Threadripper, but I didn't find any solution to the problem. What is the problem? The cursor is fluid and moves nice in Windows and other software like Modo, Maya, Photoshop etc, but in both Affinity Designer and Photo the cursor stutters or lags across the window. It's so severe it's impossible to work. Have anyone with Threadripper or Ryzen 5/Ryzen 7 experienced the same? I hope the dev team can take a look into this as well. For what it's worth I will record a snippet of video when I get a moment.
  12. I'm not primarily a user of DXF/DWG (but I've have had it occasionally making a couple drawings to 3D). All I can say is history repeats itself. I've been asking for another file format for a few years already. I feel the Affinity team is focusing too much on core tools, new and innovative tools, and fancy features, instead of crucial file format support. Hopefully the wind will turn and our long lost file support will be a thing!!
  13. More customization of keyboard shortcuts. Especially the brush size/hardness controls!
  14. Thorough DDS support (open and export, with all types of compression settings) Complete TGA open/export support (including alpha channel)

    @SrPx having to use a 3rd party application to get what should be a core function in Photo is... quite the hurdle.
