  1. Hi, this is a small but important issue. I would like the tab at the top of the image clearly defined when it is currently selected. It shows as a lighter grey colour as opposed to a dark colour when images aren't selected and every time you have to stop and think which tab is currently selected. Also, the same problem occurs when masking. When in selection mode the current mode is black/charcoal. The UI needs to be consistent. I am not suggesting bright pink but it would work better than what it is currently. I would suggest something like a fine red or yellow outline around the selected tab or button, something that instantly recognisable.

    Free Hand Selection - moves mask

    Hi, I have found out that the selection tool does work fine most of the time as you have outlined. The bug that I experience is an intermittent one so it would be very difficult to pinpoint. After I have been working in Affinity Photo for 30 mins or more using the Hand Selection Tool (Polygonal) it becomes unusable - when I add to my selection it moves the mask even when selecting from outside of the current selection. if I save and exit out, restart Photo it works fine.
  3. Am I the only one that finds this frustrating? It is impossible to create masks quickly because when you add to your selection 50% of the time your mask moves instead. Why have Add To Mask and Move Mask in the same command? The only way to use the Free Hand Selection Tool (Polygonal) is to click slowly. When using the Free Hand Selection Tool in the Freehand mode you can't overlap the selection by starting inside the selection because the mask will move. Can anyone suggest a painless way of doing this that I have clearly missed?

    [By Design] Colour Chooser

    I can kinda see what they had in mind here. When you use the dropper it places the colour in reserve until you want to use it and if after you use it and you replace it by another colour in your palette that colour is still there until it gets replace by the dropper. I do believe the colour system needs improving for a future update.
  5. I don't know if this is a bug or a feature. Colour palette needs to automatically change to black & white when editing masks - and change back to your previous colour palette when working on the pixel layer. This feature is very important when you are alternating between masks and pixel layers. Having to alter the palette every time you change from a pixel layer to a mask layer and back again can become very time consuming.

    Thank you!

  8. Yes, I am using 16bit. I'll wait for the fix, thank you.

    Tiff file and Alpha Channel

    Here is the file. When I load the tiff file it should show the background and the embedded alpha mask should be off, then the mask should appear when I turn it on in the channels. Couldn't attach the file, I get this error message: Error You aren't permitted to upload this kind of file I tried both the basic and advanced uploader.
  11. It won't let me upload a .afselection file
  12. Sorry I made a mistake with this one - I saved it as the wrong format. However, I am having trouble loading this mask, it makes Affinity crash. The mask is 6400 wide x 9600 high. Make a new image to that size and try to load the attached mask file.

  14. It is possible to save a selection from one image to file, then load it into another image (this method can crash Affinity and make it impossible to load -so I hope it gets fixed) - but it would be good to be able to load a selection directly from another opened file.
  15. I saved a mask to a channel, gave it a name, exited out of the file, reopen the file - no mask channel.
