  1. Yes, I agree, it was necessary to place in the functional requests. I have a solution to get the result I need. But it seems to me that this functionality would be useful to many users. It's nice when you, having professional software, solve your problems without resorting to third-party programs.
  2. I am using Gimp and the Bimp plugin. It turns out a batch processing manager, with the ability to resize and do a lot more. Quite a working option. But you have to create an intermediate high quality png or jpeg file. It would be nice to have this out of the box. There are a lot of people involved in websites now, and to be able to get good quality files with low weight ... this is a good thing.
  3. Will it be possible to save/export to WebP format? While you have to use third-party software for conversion.
  4. Unfortunately, when translating via google translator, I could not understand the meaning of the phrase.
  5. In the gimp, this setting is enabled optionally. I am really surprised by the issues of usability sometimes. As a rule, for the better. But some decisions are painful. At the same time, the absence of a function does not carry any useful meaning. For me, the very fact that during the workflow the user should be distracted from it and reconfigure the program ... well, this is a fail. If there were such downtime in the development of those processes at the enterprise, then the engineer developing those processes ... was asked why he wastes the time / money of the enterprise on useless actions. I have such a profession by education. The user performs 10,000 operations per day, each of them for 10 seconds, and if you add +1 operation (5 seconds) to each of the 10 operations, then the cost will increase greatly. When developing a technical process, the task is to remove unnecessary operations, reduce the number of actions. This results in lower costs and time savings. Professional software should solve the same problems. Most of my comments on the forum are aimed at improving usability. These are not formally errors. But such things distract the user from the workflow. This is not professional, although not critical. I share my time in the hope that the program will work out of the box as the user expects, without additional settings. This applies not only to this topic.
  6. I have updated the post. I know that stones scattered on the road are easy to get around or jump over. But I want me to walk along the road and think about the goal, not about the stones.
  7. Crop tool does not remember settings. If the settings are not saved, what is the point of collapsing the groups? It is objectively longer. Scrolling is faster. If I minimize something that I use less often, then I expect the program to remember it. 3. Even the default preset names are not included in the list. Why make such a small width? What to add scrolling? The same question for the preset manager. The place is full. Why such a small window? To get to the dropdown menu, I have to play with the scrolling. There are two steps. It could have been done in one action. The user again wastes time on actions that do not make sense ☹️. It's like stones spread out on the floor of a house, over which it is easy to jump over or go around, and in general, this is not a problem. But why lay stones on the floor? You can not lay them out. Khaby Lame captures my mood very accurately.
  8. How to reproduce the error: 1. Set the interface language to different from English. 2. Launching the program with the CTRL key pressed 3. Set the checkbox responsible for resetting the instrument settings. 4. Carry out a reset Group names are now displayed in English.
  9. I do not quite understand what you are talking about. Create a Boundary Layer? The user does not have to figure out how to solve the problem. There should be no problem. And here it is not necessary to invent anything, everything is already invented. photoshop 👍 gimp 👍 Affinity Photo ☹️ The squid game has begun. This can be compared to a newly built palace, in which they forgot to make a door when designing. This is so obvious that it shouldn't be so. I understand that if there is no door, then you can enter through the window. But I still ask for a door that would be like everyone else's. I don't want to enter through the window, or like Santa Claus through the chimney.
  10. Here's what I found. Due to my poor English, it was difficult to find. Perhaps I wrote about this sometime before. 1. 2. The problems are not only in two specific windows. There are similar problems in other windows as well. And I think that not only in Russian.
  11. Well this is an obvious workaround. But you can implement it so that the user would simply work without reconfiguring the program for a specific document.
  12. In my experience, people prefer to work around a problem rather than solve it. It works in all spheres of life. It is inconvenient, but not so much that I would spend energy, write a post, take screenshots, record a video, and, if necessary, also send error reports or files causing problems. As a result, several desperate madmen write, pay attention, try to help somehow, the rest are just waiting or looking for workarounds (in Russia there is such a thing as a "crutch" in programming - it's like leaning a table without a leg against the wall, so that did not fall, instead of fixing the leg). In most graphics programs, the boundaries of the document are visible. This is fine. Inconveniences do not happen very often. This is not a critical error. But little things make a program better or worse overall. It's like an iPhone and an Android phone. On the one hand, both cope with their functions, both work, but one of them is an iPhone and the other is Android And in this case, these are not names, but names that are used by the user with a certain level of quality. I have been waiting for over a year for a brush with a putty fill to stop ignoring the held Shift. I cannot draw straight lines. And this is a real problem in the basic functionality. And it affects my workflow very much. I think I'm not the only one faced with this, but I'm the only one writing about this. This I mean that if they are silent, it does not mean that they are satisfied. I am ready to spend my time to create reports and argue my position. I hope to be of service to the project.
  13. The ability to turn off document borders is a useful feature. The inability to see the boundaries of the document is already a problem. I understand that everything can be bypassed with crutches and tape, but I want to see the product workable and convenient out of the box. Therefore, I always try to find those things in which AP is inferior to its brethren. I want AP to be more convenient and better than Photoshop and other graphic editors. This is my purpose of staying on the forum.
  14. The scale has nothing to do with it. Even if one edge of the image is the same color as the background color, problems begin. Имя отутствует.mp4
  15. I already wrote about this problem once. The interface was translated, but the sizes of the text areas were left as for the English language. As a result, users of the program who use it in another language do not see the entire text. There are two windows on the screen where this problem occurs, but in fact it is the same throughout the program. When I start to show someone that they say AP is a replacement for PS. And in response I get, "What's this? Well, if there are such childish mistakes in the program, even in the interface ... Don't waste my time, this is a child's handicraft." The level of trust in the program among new users at the initial stage tends to zero. Such problems that the user faces immediately, when starting the program ... It is painful to look at it. I really like Affinity programs and I try to tell as many people as possible about them, but the simple problems that you face immediately after launching the program and that have not been fixed for years are scary. ☹️
  16. If the color of the photo program matches the background color of the document, then the user does not see the border. I may be wrong, but it seems to me that there was no such problem in earlier versions. I understand that you can change the background color, but this is not what you expect from the program.
  17. I have several questions and wishes. 1. I would like to be able to delete unnecessary cropping presets (which are set by default). Also be able to restore them. 2. Is this a mistake or so by design? I collapse groups of presets, for my convenience, so as not to scroll every time. But the next time you open the list of presets, they are all expanded again. The feeling that the program behaves like a mother who knows how her child will be better, and does not allow him to live the way he wants. 3. Is it possible that when cropping there was a snap to the borders of the image (object) and not just to the key points? 4. I would like, when rectifying, that re-framing would be automatically performed (optionally enabled).
  18. Nice update. I would also like to see the brush mix in the list of fixes. The version is replaced by the version, and the problems go unnoticed by the developers. The mix brush does not draw a straight line when holding down the shift key. The mix brush resets the empty fill when changing the layer. I'd like to see such basic functions working correctly.
  19. You can scale with the mouse if you hold down the Ctrl key and rotate the mouse wheel.
  20. Faced artifacts when zooming an image with multiple layers and masks. Artifacts in the form of transparent squares. Nvidia Studio drivers, latest, Win 10.
  21. Now it is clear. And I at AP tried to figure out how the tool works, and did not see the difference. It turns out I tried the wrong program. Thanks for the answer. Help is not always enough to understand what works and how.
  22. If it's not difficult for anyone, poke me into an explanatory tutorial on the "Edit All" tool. Through trial and error, I have not figured out how it works and what it affects.
  23. Good day. I have added some clarifications. I would like to receive an answer that this is really not a bug and that this is how it works. I am recording a lesson on YouTube, and if this is a mistake, then I will wait for the correction. If this is the way it should be, then I will write down with recommendations how to minimize this effect.
