  1. @Ron P. Thanks for the reply, although that wasn't what I was looking for, you have helped solve another issue I was having! What I would like to be able to do is change the shape of the halftone (line, circular, cosine, etc...) but the options available in your screen shot are all we have access to change (after the macro is created). GCR and UCR are not the settings I need unfortunately.
  2. Does anyone have an idea why we can't change the "Screen" option (Monochrome, Color, Line, Circular) or the "Dot" option (Cosine, Round)?
  3. Was hoping to find out how to change the angle of a halftone in an already established macro. I see that the Screen Angle's input is in "rad" what I would assume is radius/radial. It's max setting is from 0 to 6.283. Would anyone be able to illuminate the layman on what the heck I'm looking at?
  4. I would love the functionality of being able to threshold alphas in masks. There are many simple task and macros that don't need the nuance of levels or curves when just trying to crush values to 1 or 0 in the alpha. Maybe even using some of the other adjustment layers and live filters as well (Procedural, halftones, etc.)
  5. Currently there's a lot left to be desired in the pressure curve adjustments window/dialog. The current management scheme is lack-luster and can only facilitate a modicum of needs. Issue: You need more and more nodes to try to smooth the curve but at the same time, you're adding to the angularity of the segments with each additional node. Suggestion: In the image provided I make a suggestion that could cut out the need for an unneeded multitude of nodes in the attempt to sculpt your pressure curve. It borrows ideas from Blender and will help create much smoother transitions when sculpting the pressure curve. You could also allow for greater control by adding a dedicated tab within the "Properties" window for the brush, once clicking the properties button next to the pressure curve pop-out button. Being able to export the custom pressure curves is a must, which is also missing. (to the best of my knowledge). A lot of artist have a specific style the work within (like a favorite brush or medium) and having to start fresh with each new creation of a document is another short-coming for Affinity's brush management system. A mirroring function for the curve would be create as well. I feel like this is an area Affinity can step away from Adobe who uses their own management by allow the use of a dedicated width adjustment tool that can be buggy in tighter zooms to then later save the "profile" later in the stroke panel (also saves them application wide for later use).
  6. I would like to just list a few suggestions that would improve painting in Affinity drastically. Being able to have settings for the base texture like controlling the offsets and scaling to be controlled by pressure and randomized. (The would help hiding the pattern look we illustrators try so hard to hide) Being able to rearrange the brush nozzle without having to delete them all and having to start over if we don't like the order.
  7. Hey, Beyond being able to add more than one of a specific layer effect, I would love to see the ability to change the order of specific effects. This would open up a host of new customizable outcomes people could create using this ability and blend modes for each. I think adding a gradient map as a layer effect would be amazing as well. This would really allow some distance from the "other guys" products.
  8. Also, any tips on creating a post that has the video contained would be greatly appreciated
  9. Here's my latest tutorial on how to create a Vintage Bootleg T-Shirt design in Affinity. Things covered are: Creating and laying out design elements into a cohesive composition. Masking and clipping using texture brushes and gradient bitmap patterns Using Macro's to separate within the Photo Persona Gradient Mapping and more... Hopefully this helps and give some insights on what Publisher is capable of. Still would love to have the move function accounted for in macro's but this is the work around for now. Any questions, drop them in the comments. Also, thanks @Alfred Thanks!
  10. What's the status on the implementation of these features (mentioned in the thread title)? I seen threads as old as 4 years talking a little about these similar issues. Macro's and layer selections Copy the action not the original clipboard data. For anyone doing large scale macro's this is essential. Without them, Macro's are useless. I've attempt renaming each layer to help provide the actions reference but they all break apart after a restart of the program.
  11. Has this still not been fixed after 4 years? I wonder because it still does this for me currently...?
  12. I'm mainly an illustrator using a tablet monitor to illustrate with in the suite of products. I want to find out how many of you out there are completely frustrated by the suite of products constantly losing the ability use hotkeys? For instance, anyone having the issue with the ALT key causing the hotkeys to stop working, menu items show they have the ALT function triggered, as if the keyboard key is stuck (usually shows the menu item with an underscore _ )? What about the Spacebar stopping the hand tool function, no longer being able to move the canvas? My Experience: I've purchase a new logitech key board, I'm using a less than year old Cintiq and this is the only software I continually have issues with. The ALT key issue has finally caused me to stop illustrating in the software and move to other options. Within a minutes of ALT picking colors while painting, the hotkeys cease function and makes it impossible to get anything done in a reasonable amount of time. I'm at a lose and want to find how many of you are out there?
  13. I'm having this same issue and reported it here <----------------
