    Many thanks for letting me know, I'll update this info with our QA team and have them test this against the latest beta build!

    Rick G reacted to Chris B in 1.7.0.231 Cropping still snaps even when snapping is turned off   
    We had to re-open this on Mac and was properly fixed in the Mac build 109 so we should see this make its way to Windows in the next beta. I'll double check though. Thanks Rick.

    Rick G got a reaction from Chris B in 1.7.0.231 Cropping still snaps even when snapping is turned off   
    When you try to crop an image it is difficult to set the corners to a precise location. The movements are snapped even with snapping turned off. Even with Whole Pixel and  force alignment turned off, it still snaps
    Yes you can hold down ALT to get a precise location but this is still apparently broken
    Thanks

    Rick G reacted to Danielcz in Workflow - Selection Brush Tool   
    Will try to be more useful now:
    What about to default into ADD mode (Selection Brush Tool) with New Document or launch of program instead of keeping it on last selected from previous session. It does not make any sense to have selected SUBTRACT mode with new document.
    Another great thing would be to add small + and - sign at Selection Brush circle to quickly see what mode (ADD/SUBTRACT) is currently selected.
    Its just quality of life improvement to speed up and smooth workflow.
     
    Photoshop has something similar in center of brush :

    Rick G reacted to Chris B in Problem with macro   
    Hey Tschens,
    We've seen a few issues where a macro will stop working correctly when you restart the app. Your best bet is to attach it so we can take a peek at it. 
    You can only leave a step out by unchecking it—you can't rearrange macro steps at the moment.

    Thanks all. Both cases reproduced (with and without masks). I'm passing this to the dev team to be looked at.

    Rick G reacted to Tschens in Problem with macro   
    Since I upgraded my beta from 1.6.5 to 1.7.0.x, I have a problem with a macro which I use to create a frame+copyright text around my pictures. The final 2 steps of the macro is a self-made "picture brush" with my copyright text. This picture brush doesnt work any more, it simply doesnt appear in my pics. I re-created the final 2 steps of the macro and it worked again, but after re-starting affinity it again doesnt work.
    Is this a known isue? I could provide the macro + picture brush, if needed.
     
    Btw: Is there a way to erase single steps within a macro or to re-arrange the order of the single steps of a macro to fine-tune it? Couldnt find this option so far. If the answer is no, please put that on a wish-list. :-)

    Rick G got a reaction from verysame in AP do NOT accept brush stroke?   
    Chris - do not take this as being nasty but they ignore a LOT of requests ... some don't make sense of course but some are good and would speed up workflows. They get ignored but a faction of folks that want some oddball things that I call |toys" seem to have a direct line in and get their stuff implemented. That has more than a few discouraged

    Hi Rick,
    Mark knows what the cause is and the bug report has been updated. Hopefully we can see a fix for this during the 1.7 beta phase.

    Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums  
    DanielC I have merged your post into this relevant suggestions forum thread. No doubt if we can implement this in an efficient way the styles would also be brought in. For now the only work around is RTF export and import into APu.

    It's because the mouse up message was never received, so the main area still thinks the mouse is down. I'm wondering if this has always been there, or this is new.

    It's fine for me too. It is likely a setting such as Opacity or Flow or maybe the Source. As carl123 suggested, a full UI screenshot would be the best way forward here so we can see what you're working with.

    Thanks for the check, Rick, but I'm still getting it. I tried with a completely new, empty document and saw the same effect. To see exactly what colour is where, I drag from the colour picker on the right-hand Colour tab.

    Morning Dave,
    Can you attach a screenshot and tell me what document colour format you're using?
    The Colour Picker suggests the values are correct however, I might be misunderstanding what you're doing.

    Hi,  i have at the moment to    "reconstruct  a  master-layout for everything in my company  A4   megadocument."
    This worked only by importing the pdf of the indesign original file...     Now of course everything is formatted,  and the aim is to reconstruct styles, layout and everything, so later on we will get a template for our company, to build up on.. 

    1.  is there a way to make an empty new style, and tell it to get "All"  Attributes from the line or word, or what so ever..  like a pipette tool for textstyles ?   ( it takes long time to make a new style, swith to the textstyles, look everywhere for everything, goback to your new style, fill in the attributes by hand..   look again for paragraph attributes and so on and so on...   so. this would be handy..
    2. the other way round..  if i have a style and want it in many sections of a document.     i  have to open the frame klick in the text, search again for my style,   search the next textarea for the style, repeat repeat repeat...   wouldnt it be nice just to have a  style-brush-icon  and functionality...   Open Office or Staroffice once had something available... very very handy..

    Hi Ron Potter
    The crop will default to the size of the image you have open, but if you have a commonly used crop size or ration this can be saved as a preset for you to recall quickly
    Thanks

    Rick G reacted to Chris_K in Wahoo! Linked Files!   
    When you start a new document you get the option in the new document dialog to set the Image Placement Policy to linked or Embedded. This can also be changed after the fact through the Document setup dialog which will affect resources added after the change. You can also use the resource manager to convert image between linked and embedded
    Cheers
