  1. Me again. Second Crop Tool Feature Request: 'Reset' I just noticed that if I want my original image back (Post Crop), I kinda have to manually drag out a huge crop area (way bigger that whatever I have on-screen). Implement that, then go back to the crop tool, and resize my transparent canvas to the image boundaries of the now visible previously cropped out area. A simple 'Reset Crop', or 'Revert to Original' would be handy to have. Thanks!
  2. Fair enough I actually ended up moving the Affinity file over to my Mac Pro (via iCloud) as there was a stronger image candidate from the shoot that I decided to use. The real joy was being able to just swap out the background layer and quickly adjust a couple masks to get to a finished product instead of having to start the process all over again. (Also, where in heaven's name is the 'Solo' layer option on the Desktop version?) 10 points for Affinity Photo's cross-platform files! My one gripe would be the inability to have multiple documents open on the iPad version. That way I could move images back & forth like I tend to do on desktop platforms. My apologies if this already exists, but I don't remember it being mentioned, so I'm kinda guessing that functionality doesn't exist? (I shall now Google it, like I should have from the start) As for multiple Instagram accounts, I was toying with the idea of a test account up to yesterday. I may have to revisit that option
  3. Hey Affinity Folks! I have a couple of questions/requests with regards to the crop tool: Is there any way to have it remember the last used settings? Also, can we get a couple of standard crop presets to choose from? (16:9/4:3/Square/etc). And maybe and option to have it not float outside the canvas area? (toggle-able preferably ) Usage scenario: I'm editing a photo for instagram (I know, I know) and I'd like my image to have a square crop. So after I choose 'Custom' under ratio, input my arbitrary identical numbers (4x4), then decide on my crop area and approve it.... I change my mind. It should be a little more to the left. So now I have to reselect the tool, reselect 'Custom', re-input the crop dimensions, try not to accidentally hit anything other than the tiny crop handles (if not I have manually redraw and reposition the crop area from scratch) then nudge the image around to my newly preferred crop area. But now it should be a little higher. So I go through these steps again. And again. It gets a tad tedious Thanks!
  4. I am THRILLED to report that upgrading to iOS 11.3 Beta 2 has fixed this issue. Exports now work as expected
  5. Hey Andrew! I most certainly am.
  6. Hey MEB! I do! Safari, Mail, & Apple News. My current workaround is to use the 'Share' feature and just save to images. That seems to work every time. I tried again after closing everything else, still no joy.
  7. I'm encountering all kinds of issues related to exporting files. Basically after the file has 'Generated for export' and I hit 'Ok', it gets stuck at a white screen. This has happened with TFF, and JPEG exports. It seems somewhat random too. Sometimes it goes to the expected 'Choose where to export screen', and sometimes it just freezes on a blank white screen (requiring a hard close and restart). The good news is that the files retain all changes, so I just try again, but it is frustrating. This is cross-posted in the last Beta, as I wasn't sure where to put it (I first encountered the behaviour there, but then noticed and installed the release candidate, but the behaviour is still present). At the moment, I'm on attempt #4 to export a JPEG from a 16bit RGB TIFF.

    Submitted a couple RAW files. Canon 80D With a Tamron SP 24-70 f/2.8 G2 and a Tamron SP 70-200 f/2.8 G2. I chose tropical themed ones, as I know that you fine folks outside of the Caribbean are currently firmly in winter's chilly embrace. Think warm thoughts

    Hello all! Question regarding working with masks: Is there any way to display the mask area while drawing? Or to have the masked area displayed with the same type of clarity associated with the 'Refine Masks' tool (without having to actively use the refine mask tool). A good example would be the implementation of masks in Capture One Pro. You can turn the highlight mode, 'on' 'off' or 'display only when drawing' Or am I'm simply overlooking an obvious toggle somewhere?

    Unfortunately it exhibits the same behaviour. The source spot will become 'unglued' and move to the pencil point (although it certainly IS a more precise way of working, so thanks!)

    Thank goodness it's not just me. I'm having the same issue as well. Granted, I noticed it while using the healing brush tool. Basically, after you set your source area for a healing operation, the crosshairs icon signifying the 'set source area' peramater jumps to wherever the apple pencil is placed. So instead of performing a healing operation, you've now accidentally reset your source area to the blemish spot. And it occurs quite sporadically. Sometimes (almost never) it works as expected, sometimes (mostly) I have to set, and reset the source area 3-5 times before it 'stays put'.
  13. Hey Bri! I actually meant Matt's suggestion with the 'Region' itself was still 'US'. I certainly didn't mean to belittle or dismiss your helpful suggestion! (Thanks!) As a whole, I guess I'm just looking for a simple (and obvious) button to change the 'In Program' spell checker to difference languages. Like in Illustrator. Or InDesign. It seems like a handy feature to have. In the immediacy I'd like 'Colour' to have a 'u' without the spell checker feeding into my 'poor spelling' insecurities. My bar is set low!
  14. Hey Matt! I was under the (potentially incorrect) impression that region doesn't impact language, just things like currency, temperature, time, etc (like Alfred mentioned) I tried it under a new document, but still getting a red squiggle Just thinking out loud here, but if I have to change my entire system settings just for a working spell checker?....Well, that's not ideal. I'm not trying to be difficult here! Far from it, just pointing out that's not a particularly elegant solution. Granted, I couldn't code my way out of a box, so my opinion is moot at best.
  15. Hey Matt! Yep! 'Colour' is incorrectly underlined. Images below (System language and Affinity Character language visable)
