  1. I'd love to see Publisher export to eBook ready formats. Is that on the roadmap?
  2. I've noticed when working with multiple layers, Affinity Photo will go into a Wait State like it's doing some behind the scenes saving or maintenance of some sort. It is not a freeze. If I wait long enough—and sometimes that's a really long time—it will eventually allow we to work again. I've noticed the more layers I have, the more often this occurs and the longer I will have to wait when it happens. Any idea what's going on or how to prevent it?
  3. I often export my Affinity Photo image as a TIF. Additionally, I often work on the TIF and save the TIF from time to time as I'm working. Occasionally, hitting Save will force me to save in the AP format. For awhile I couldn't figure out why. Now, I believe I have a handle on it. Often I open AP-created TIFs in Photoshop and sometimes when I try to save, I get the prompt telling me that saving a TIF with layers will create a larger file. Looking at the layers panel, I see only one layer, but if I flatten the image anyway, it saves without the prompt. Through trial-and-error, I've found that these are also the TIF files that want to save in AP-format in Affinity Photo. In Photoshop, the problem is due to the single layer not being set as the Background Layer. In Affinity Photo, since it cannot save TIFs with multiple layers, the app should at least prompt to convert the layer to the background instead of forcing us to save the file in a different format.

    Mystery of the Hidden Layer

    If it prompts for save to a afphoto file it means there will be something in the layer structure that a TIF might not be compatible with so we prompt for afphoto to keep the layer structure. Are you able to provide one of the tifs that is causing the issue for you? I'll try to send one next time. The problem is once it gets in that state, I either have to save as an afphoto file or close without saving. That makes it impossible to send you the TIF once it gets in that state.
  5. Can we get the ability to make our list of Brush Categories in Affinity Photo sort alphabetically? It would also be nice to have sub-categories or tags to better organize our libraries.
  6. Interesting. So if I export all and delete all, I can then import them in the right order?
  7. Is there any way to make my list of Brush Categories in Affinity Photo sort alphabetically?

    custom brush panels

    I've been working this week importing my extensive brush collection from Photoshop, and this process has really been a pain. Not only do we need tagging or maybe brush sub-categories and/or individual brush naming, we should also be able to do simple things like multi-selecting brushes when moving from one category to another or being able to reorder the category list. That reminds me: is there some way to at least get my list of brush categories to appear in alphabetical order?
  9. I know folks are excited about the new Light theme in the Affinity 1.6 release, but I'm wondering what new features we can expect to see in Affinity Photo 1.6? I've seen the very long road maps lists, but is there a definitive list somewhere of which will be included with 1.6? Thanks in advance!
  10. They're not sure yet, Chintan. Thanks, Nezumi.

    Thanks! Your work is much appreciated, smadell.
  12. When I'm not behind the camera, I'm the manager of a software development team. I've been a programmer 30 years, so your response made me smile. Are you not allowed to speak to the Dev team?

  15. Like I said, it is not freezing up exactly. The main caption bar does change to "Affinity Photo (Not Responding)" and the cursor changes to a wait spinner, but after a few minutes the application will be active again. For me, it's not with any specific file, but usually when I'm working with multiple layers and masks. It's random beyond that.
  16. Each time I open Affinity Photo the color space has been reset from sRGB to sRGB_IEC61966-2.1.
  17. Will do. I eventually gave up and just use sRGB_IEC61966-2.1 now.
  18. Ok. Rebooting the computer, everything worked again. There's still a glitch there somewhere, but at least I can continue working now. Thanks.
  19. I see how to save presets for Curves, but I don't see how or where to apply them. Can someone point me in the right direction? Thanks.
  20. Unfortunately, yes. I've tried different layers and opened different files. Same results.
  21. I think I've found a bug. I believe you are supposed to apply presets through the Adjustments panel, but unfortunately my Adjustment panel buttons do nothing when you think on them and there are no preset examples underneath each filter button. I remember them being there before, but now they are gone and saving new presets do not add them back. What can I do?
