  1. To be more precise I'm looking for tools which support tilt and rotation of the Apple Pencil. The included brushes are "dumb" and only rotate the brush shape with the stroke direction. I already bought some Brushes from Frankentoon and DAUB which are all disappointing on this.
  2. Hi there, does anybody know about downloadable brushes that contains a realistic pencil like Apple Note, Papers oder Art Studio h Cheers, Tekl
  3. Thanks. This option does not help, as it only avoids drawing with the finger but it does not disable touching interface elements. Well, I recently found a solution by accident. Double tapping the fullscreen icon will also get the option bar off the screen. Yeah.
  4. I'm trying to use Affinity Photo with the Apple Pencil for digital painting. My problem is, that my hand often accidentally rests on the bottom contextual panel and activates transparency lock for example. Is there a way to let it disappear in full screen mode. Or can it be moved elsewhere? Or how do others deal with the panel?
  5. The DAUB Pencils aren't perfect. Isn't it possible to create a realistic pencil like in Apple Notes with Affinity Photo?
  6. I bought the great Neptune Illustration Kit. The user guide shows how to install the Neptune Swatches, but I can't find the download for it in my account. Just the brushes and the textures are there.
  7. Hi there, I wonder how I can read the color information of a sampler point which I've set on the Mac version.
  8. You can get QuarkXPress 2015 very cheap: https://shop.heise.de/katalog/ct-kreativ-arbeiten-2017
  9. Is there a way to set defaults not only for the current document but also for new documents? At least it should be possible to select a style before drawing a rectangle etc. (in Affinity Photo).
  10. @toltec I know about those interactive shortcuts, but I can only use one hand at the moment ;-). My requested shortcuts would also be great for the shortcut buttons on a graphic tablet..
  11. Hi there, maybe I'm just blind, but I'm missing shortcut to jump to the next or previous brush in the brushes studio (suggestion: , and .). I'm also missing simple keyboard shortcuts for decreasing and increasing the brush hardness like the shortcuts [ and ] for the brush size. My suggestion would be Shift+[ and Shift+]. Greetz, Tekl
  12. Thanks for clarification. I wonder, why there is an interface for the filter inside Designer? Then you simply could add a menu command to add this filter without switching apps. I understand that you don't want all features in all apps, but I think perspective transformations are useful for vector graphics as well. I missed this in Illustrator for years.
  13. I just saw this feature in the advertising Video for Affinity Designer for Windows (at 0:59 and 1:15). When do we get this in the Mac version?
  14. I'm looking for a new MacBook Pro 15". What's better for Affinity? 2,6 GHz CPU and Radeon Pro 460 or 2,7 GHz with Radeon Pro 455? The price difference is only 20 €.
  15. What Tech is from yesterday? The GPU for example is absolutely new.
  16. The Problem is, that Affinity is far to sensitive. I think there should be an option to disable scrolling gestures while holding down the mouse button. Or even better only allow scrolling with a second finger. Another solution could be to stick the mouse pointer to the object, so scrolling is possible but it's not moving objects. But I don't know any use case, so think the best would be to decrease sensitivity while holding down the mouse button.
  17. Hi, I often have problems to read the histogram with overlapping curves. Its hard to see which channel is responsible for the white curves. I think Apple Photos is doing it better as it always shows the curve outlines in the channel color.
  18. It would be nice to have special a transform mode for selections. Pixel perfect rectangular selections are very difficult in Affinity Photo. Well, I can zoom in, but moving the mouse while Affinity draws the marquee tends to very slow scrolling. It would also be helpful to be able to move the not finished selection by hitting the space bar like Photoshop or the screenshot tool from OS X does.
  19. Yes, I know, but I think Affinity should be shipped with optimal shortcuts. I just realized that my suggested shortcut is not the best choice as ⌘] should then be mapped to ⌘+ which is already used on German keyboards. So doing it like Adobe seems to be the best: ⌘[ → ⌘Ö and ⌘] → ⌘Ä. By the way: In the past Adobe messed or forgot the localized Shortcuts with some Updates. In some versions we couldn't fix it manually as there were bugs with recording shortcuts with umlauts. ;-)
  20. +1 Maybe there's a folder with all settings which we can symlink on Dropbox or whatever. Haven't found it. I want synchronous Toolbars and Preferences.
