    Of course, I'll post one here when I have the chance.

    Crashes when adding guides

    Here are all the Designer related logs from 08-08-2019. Designer iPad.wakeups_resource-2019-08-08-132600.ips Designer iPad.wakeups_resource-2019-08-08-133341.ips Designer iPad.wakeups_resource-2019-08-08-121607.ips Designer iPad-2019-08-08-132909.ips Designer iPad-2019-08-08-131139.ips
  3. Hi team, I’m using on an iPad 11’ iOS 12.4. I haven’t been able to reliably reproduce it but I recently had a lot of crashes when adding guides. These aren’t even benign crashes, every time all the data was unrecoverably lost since the last save (or all if there was no save).
  4. Oh I just checked the desktop version, indeed, you’re right. However I was using the iPad version and there precise rotation only works around bounding box points, even when the reference point is activated. Sorry for the confusion, I should’ve clarified. Edit: then I guess my question is, are there plans to implement this on the iPad too?
  5. I just ran into this problem as well. I think it'd make a lot of sense to be able to do precise rotations about the "external reference point", instead of points on the bounding box. Most of the time I want to rotate about the reference point because it is much more powerful (you can move it wherever you want and snapping rules apply to it). It is really frustrating not being able to do precise rotations without tricks like this. Are there plans to include an option for it in the transform panel?
  6. Affinity photo can also work with .ase files which are quite easy to read/generate.
  7. In Figma, you can connect any number of lines to a node. This makes it easy to create for example lattice-like structures. Is this something that could be implemented in Affinity Designer?
  8. Hi Chris, Thanks for your answer. I think I wasn't very clear. :) The issue is exactly that I can't interact using touch with the surrounding UI in some cases, e.g. with the before/after slider when the setting is on. The ideal solution would be indeed if only accidental painting would be prevented.
  9. I didn't experience the overheating (or any slowdown) on a 2016 MacBook Pro with integrated graphics. I guess it is specific to people with certain dedicated graphics cards. Might be a driver issue?
  10. Limiting touch to gestures was a welcome feature, however sometimes it applies to interactions one wouldn't expect, e.g. when moving the slider of a before/after preview.
  11. Thanks for the quick answer! Specifically what I wanted to do is retouch teeth. My workflow in Photoshop would be this: Create a group on the top with a mask on it that restricts everything in it to the area of the teeth. Add an HSL and a curves layer to modify the color. So far everything is good. But then I wanted to add a pixel layer to add some gloss to the teeth by blending an all white layer where the underlaying composition was bright. When I did that though, the adjustment layers no longer applied. If this is by design, is there an idiomatic way to do this in Affinity Photo without duplicating the mask? Thanks. In general, my goal is to apply the same mask to both some adjustment layers and pixel layers while allowing the adjustment layers to take effect outside the group. Update: in the meantime I found out that if you group the adjustment layers together within the top level masked group, they are suddenly in effect again for all the underlying layers. If this is by design, it is really inconsistent. Why wouldn't it be a good idea to only restrict adjustment layers to groups if they are applied to the group (blue vertical bar) and let them pass through if they are child layers? I mean, the default blending mode of groups is literally "pass through". The adjustment layers should pass through.
  12. Hi, When a group only contains adjustment layers, they affect all layers below them, as expected: If you then add any normal layers to the group, the adjustment layers suddenly only apply to layers within the group (in this case to none, because it's the bottom layer): This is really inconvenient and confusing because a usual use case is to apply the same mask to a bunch of adjustment layers and normal layers by grouping them together. I haven't found a way to do that in Affinity Photo. The only workaround is to create a separate group for adjustment layers and pixel layers but then if you have to edit the mask, you have to copy it around between the groups because it's duplicated.
