  1. Thanks, that's very helpful. I hadn't thought to rasterize a pixel layer, only vectors, text etc. But this seems to work fine for me. Hopefully it will for the topic starter, too.
  2. Did you perhaps flip the document sometime prior to applying the Liquify filter? If you do this, Affinity Photo messes up the Liquify effect in the way that you describe. I reported the bug some time ago in this thread - https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/28543-liquify-on-flipped-document/- but unfortunately it hasn't been fixed yet. Hopefully the Affinity team will do so soon, because it does affect my workflow when flipping to check and adjust a picture's symmetry and balance. In the meantime, in your case I would suggest flipping the document back again and then trying Liquify to see if it now works as expected - or open a new document and see if it works correctly on that. Personally I haven't had any trouble with Liquify in this or any build except with flipped documents.
  3. Hi, can anyone please confirm whether this issue has been fixed in the latest release? It hadn't in 1.5.0.43, and now the download for the beta .45 has been removed (and there doesn't appear to be a time-limited demo available for the final version?) I can't find out for myself without purchasing. After some trials with .43, I can confirm that it is definitely a bug, not a feature. I would like to buy and support Affinity Photo, but I really want to know beforehand that this now works, or at the very least receive from the team an assurance that a fix will be forthcoming. To replicate the problem: 1. Start a new canvas and draw something on a pixel layer. 2. Document -> Flip Horizontal. 3. Switch to Liquify persona. 4. Push the image around using the Liquify Push Forward tool: you will see that the image is liquified in the opposite direction than expected - i.e. pushing is pulling, as if the document has not been flipped. 5. Even if you can get used to this reverse functionality, when you click Apply, the image becomes warped entirely differently to how it appeared on the preview, and is thus unusable (I'm guessing it is being warped as if it were an unflipped canvas). Curiously, if you Flip Vertical instead of Horizontal, the preview works as expected, but clicking 'Apply' then applies the same unexpected reverse warping effect. Thanks very much, James
  4. Hello, Firstly, many thanks to the Affinity team for bringing this program to Windows. I've been looking forward to using it for some time. I'm not experienced at beta testing, so apologies if the following is due to user error rather than an actual bug. My issue involves using Liquify on a flipped document (which I might want to do to check and fix symmetry and balance in my drawings, for example). 1. Start a new canvas and draw something on a pixel layer. 2. Document -> Flip Horizontal (or Vertical). 3. Switch to Liquify persona. 4. Push the image around using the Liquify Push Forward tool, and the image is liquified in the opposite direction than I would expect - i.e. pushing seems to be pulling, as if the document has not been flipped. Thanks, James
