  1. Thanks I will try that. If the default behaviour is not useful then surely it is a candidate for being listed as a bug and fixed. Is there a use that I'm not aware of?
  2. hi @carl123 - yes, some of the objects in the group have been rotated. Now that you mention it, I have seen this many times and thought it was a random glitch, but iirrc there were rotated objects. Can I turn this behaviour off? If not I think this is a bug because: the bounding box is clearly wrong using the bounding box for alignment doesn't work anymore more
  3. I often use the bounding box of objets or groups to align them. I sometimes find the bounding box of groups to be larger than the actual collection of objects. Is this a bug? The attached screenshots show the group selected, illustrating the wrong bounding box ... and the individual objects in the group, showing the correct bounding box. (I'm using the latest Apple Store Designer 1.10.4 on the latest MacOS 12.1)
  4. That seems to have stopped the pixellation. I'll see if it slows down performance when I next to a screen recording.
  5. Thanks @Lee D I ran some new tests to exclude factors: I used the normal pointer and didn't connect or use the Wacom tablet I used both full-screen and windowed mode I used both "default resolution" and the scaled display ("more space") that I normally use I tried with and without the Quicktime ScreenRecording With and without Metal acceleration (with restart in between) In all cases I saw the problem. I've attached a video recorded on my smartphone to show the pixellation - used a smartphone to avoid introducing factors into the laptop. You can see the pixellation as I simply move the pointer over and away from the shape. PXL_20211128_230152344s.mp4
  6. I should add I'm using a Wacom tablet - but I doubt that is the cause.
  7. I noticed a change in Affinity Photo 1.10.4 Apple Store. When drawing with brushes, the rendered curves are pixelated and are only clean when the pointer is out of range (of the window, or view or bounding box). Moving the pointer back causes the view to be pixellated again. This is problematic for two reasons: we can't see what we're working on as the view is not "final" when screen recording the drawing of diagrams/text/etc the pixellated view is incorrect Attached are two images showing the "mouse over" pixellation and "mouse not over" The effect isn't huge but is enough to ruin screen recordings I do for work.
  8. Why doe Affinity Photo (and probably Design) need permissions to record the screen? The macOS permission request popped up on a re-installed app after I used the palette colour picker. I granted the permission, but noticed the colour had been picked up before I had granted the permission so it didn't really need it. I'd like to revoke that permission - what will go wrong?
  9. I realise not all users will find this useful, but many of us use Affinity - especially Designer - to create diagrams for scientific publications (books, papers, blogs, videos). It would be amazing to have the ability to include LaTEX typeset formulae. The typesetting quality of decades old TeX is still far higher than anything Microsoft or Google can do today (and perhaps even Affinity Publisher, I haven't checked). The capability doesn't have to be for laying out paragraphs and pages of text .. but just snippets of formulae and labels to be included in Diagrams or in existing body text. I understand the licensing of TeX and the standard typefaces (such as Computer Modern) are permissive and allow inclusion in proprietary products. A LaTEX backend can be quite huge, but very small versions exist designed to be used as embedded software. Notice that it has been possible for web pages to include LaTEX-liek typesetting using javascript libraries such as MathJAX .. so if a lightweight web page can do it .. surely a full-fat application like Affinity can do it. Images attached show comparisons of typesetting mathematical formulae (Microsoft top left, Google Docs top right, LaTex bottom).
  10. One of he disappointments with Photo is that it comes with no creative filters (like the brushes...) The ones it does come with are so basic and about the state of the art of 1995. Today people are used to free and powerful filters available in smartphone/tablet apps - and crucially, the quality is impressively high. I would encourage Affinity to develop (or licence) artistic "brush/paint/pencil" filters of this quality: https://fotosketcher.com/fotosketcher-gallery/ the example below are based on photos I took myself and applied fotosketcher a few years ago...
  11. I know this request has been made regularly going back years. What is the latest from Affinity on a bitmap to vector tracer. I would request Affinity look at this online tool https://www.vectorizer.io because it demonstrates both simplicity of use, but also providing a good amount of customisation of the tracing process.
  12. Hey Chris - what are the instructions for MacOS with apple store apps?
  13. Hey Patrick sorry to be cheeky but the non beta (stable release) version is not supposed to break my workflow but it did ... so I guess I have calibrate assurances around the less tested beta. I can't afford to spend a day wiping and reinstalling everything at the moment to get back to a known good state. Happy to explore other ways of finding this bug... especially if you consider removing that "my profile" thing with embedded web components from all the apps.
  14. hi Chris - sadly I can't install betas on my laptop as I can't risk it breaking.. I need it for my work.
  15. when it crashes, it happens with both my Wacom and my native trackpad does the crashlog indicate anything?
