    Paul Batty got a reaction from ygoe in Document Window Arrange   
    One of the things I really miss in Affinity software is the ability to quickly arrange open documents, yes I know you can Float and Dock them, but wouldn't it be nice to have the option to arrange tabbed 2up Vertical or Horizontal, or even 3Up, 4 up etc. What about adding the option to 'Tile' tabbed windows that would be a start!
    As it is now I have to float the windows, move them around and resize them to suite, which is tedious! It is like going back in time!
    Maybe I have been spoilt by other software that offers this facility; but I think it's time Affinity had this feature, especially since most people now have bigger monitor/displays and can make use of such a useful feature.

    Paul Batty got a reaction from Chris B in Develop Persona Rotate   
    Hi Chris, Thanks for the info. I used the first method and I can confirm the bug in windows Affinity Photo has gone. No darkening of the image and the canvas+pixels now rotate. Thank You.

    Paul Batty got a reaction from Patrick Connor in Develop Persona Rotate   
    Hi Folks just downloaded the latest update 1.8.4.693 and installed it as administrator. For me the problem still remains! My solution is still valid, don't rotate any image files in the 'Develop' persona just do it in the 'Photo' persona. In the 'Develop' persona the  image is still rotated in a darkened state, but the image/document (Canvas)  is left in its original orientation giving me a cropped squared image. Hope this feed back helps.

    Paul Batty got a reaction from Fixx in Affinity Photo - Saving the Workspace?   
    Being able to save different workspaces for different needs is a really useful feature. The Adobe Software CS/CC has offered this sort of thing with pre-sets for Photography, Typography, Painting and the ability for the user to create Custom workspaces.  I regularly use the facility on Photoshop & InDesign when writing tutorials for the classes I teach at college.
    It would be a fantastic feature to add to all the 'Affinity' software because it allows the end user to work in a way that meets their own requirements. Reading the comments above seems to suggest that this sort of thing is already built-in but hidden. If other software providers  offer this facility is it not time that Affinity  made the feature available in their own software, even if it means adding another few options to the existing Window menu  >>>>>>   New Workspace > Reset Workspace > Delete Workspace. It's not much to ask for, is it?
    I would also like to see other developments in Affinity software to make it more intuitive to use, such as adding greater control to the Warp/Mesh tool to make it more like Photoshops  'Free Transform' tool with ability to change option by using a  right click inside the transform  to Scale, Distort, Perspective, Warp etc. 
    Or the ability to access more than one RAW file at time in the 'Develop Persona' and then be able to copy/sync develop settings to a whole batch of images just as can be done in 'Adobe Camera Raw' or 'Lightroom'. 
    While I have all the Affinity software, I still end up working with Adobe Software just because I can get things done quicker as it is more intuitive. I really hope that the Affinity software gets better and better with each incarnation, I would hope the  development team takes on board the comments from all who have invested in their work. I admit I also need to spend a bit more time using the Affinity software, which will probably happen in my retirement.
    Just like the comment above I have a love hate relationship with Affinity Photo, I inform people about the software but always say its missing the little extra bits that make Photoshop easier and quicker to use.
