studio97 got a reaction from PaulAffinity in handless not working
When I was working on a visual and used some of my PS brushes and used them on own layers the layer handlers are not working!
I have made a small video of this. Oke not only the PS but all brushes the layer handles are not responding.
after restarting the programm the layer handlers are working again.
oke nice, but very irritation if you are working on a project!
studio97 reacted to Mark Ingram in High precision tablet input stops my Wacom from drawing strokes
The current plan is to remove this experimental feature, as several customers have had issues with it. We will still provide a high precision input mechanism in the future, but only for users on Windows 8.1 or above.
studio97 reacted to Mark Ingram in Beta update?
I'm really not sure why you're all discussing this. We have never given out ETA on releases / patches / betas, etc (and never will, for obvious reasons). I realise you may be excited to try out the new version as an official retail release (or even get a new beta update), but complaining about slow development is not an accurate thing to say. The Windows version has massively improved performance in the most recent betas, and we continue to add new features, and fix bugs as we go. The time period between releases does not reflect the amount of work that is happening, it merely reflects the time delays between when I make a build, how it gets on with internal testing, and then when I release it to the public. We have builds that are never released onto the forum (which happened last week, build #308 crashes on Windows 7, so it was never released externally).
And with regards to GPU Compute, yes it's something that's on my roadmap, but the complexities of implementing this on Windows are far greater than macOS. macOS has one GPU manufacturer, and Apple are in control of the drivers (you get the latest ones automatically). Windows has at least 3 GPU manufacturers, and the drivers are in a variety of different states and ages - we see that from bug reports here on the forum (i.e. crashes that are solved by merely uninstalling and reinstalling your GPU drivers).
Aside from GPU Compute (and ability to load RAW files via Apple RAW engine), there are no feature differences between the macOS and Windows versions.
studio97 got a reaction from Chris B in PS brushes
I have so many, but most of the problem brushes are these who are bigger than 1500 px . But today There was a driver update from Wacom, so I tested this directly in version 1.6.5 and loading is fast now by the bigger brushes. So the problem should be gone for now. I need to test this in version 220.127.116.118 but let ypu now if this give problems there.

studio97 reacted to Pšenda in Translating in Dutch?
Yes, but Serif applications are not community (open source). And because they can not guarantee the quality and accuracy of translations, they will not go to that way.
In my opinion, the translation of the environment / UI is not necessary, and it is often confusing. A translation of help and tutorials is needed.
studio97 reacted to IanSG in Workspace doesn't show changes
It makes a difference, but the results aren't consistent! If I zoom in and out the image becomes a lot lighter. After that it might work or it might break the image into squares. Sometimes its the navigator image that breaks up, but there doesn't seem to be any consistency there either. I've tried 14bit DNG files and 12 bit RW2 files.
