    Gregory-CJ got a reaction from simon60 in FONT UI SIZE- extra large needed   
    Thanks Serif for your brilliant AP software version 1.7.
    Would it be possible to offer  an Extra Large  Font UI size option for the many of us who don't have the best of eyesight.
     MY experience on my 5K iMAC monitor  is that the UI fonts with  the  two options of default and large font are still too small to read comfortably and I need to get very close to the monitor to read the  menu text.  Extra large Font UI would help greatly.
    Thanks

    Gregory-CJ got a reaction from Chris B in Smudge brush acting as an eraser   
    I just now remedied the situation with the smudge brush acting as an eraser. I went through the four tabs,
    general, dynamics, textures and sub brushes and noticed that the only differences between my four  smudge brushes is that
    the one is question had a sub brush adde to it....... By deleting this sub brush  it set the smudge brush so that it doesn't eraser anymore.
    Everything is A-Okay.

    Gregory-CJ got a reaction from Chris B in AP -1.7.3 crashes in Separated Mode when saving as...   
    Hi ,
    I running AP 1.7.3 on a new iMAC (lots of ram-32 GBs)
    When I open an existing file I can save as... this file no problem.
    When I open the same file and " create" a new view of the same file and then go to the 
    separated mode option, when I attempt to save as.... AP crashes...
     
    your thoughts.

    Here’s a look at my Affinity Photo setup, using two views of the same painting that I am working on gives me the flexibility of zooming in on one image to work the details while being able to see the immediate impact on the whole image. This approach really works well given I am using a 5K iMac monitor. Comments welcomed.

    @Gregory-CJ Ah, okay! Thanks for telling me.

    It seems like Separated Mode is a Mac exclusive thing, since I couldn't find it on my Windows version. : (

    Yes. The closest thing we Windows users have is via Window > Float or Window > Float All. You can also, of course, float Studio panels by dragging them out of their docked positions, and float the Tools bar by turning off View > Dock Tools.

    Yes, as Aammppaa pointed out rotation = View>left or right and I mapped these  to the Expresskeys  of my "old" wacom tablet.
    To get the floating tool bars go  under the window menu > Separated Mode.  You will have to scale the image to fit your monitor size. 
    If you want to work with two of the same image then open up  a new view  under View> new view.  Now both images can be scaled/positioned as you want.
    Works like a charm.
    Here is the final digital painting.  I broke my procedure down into a few categories (3D form, Color, Facial landmarks,& luminosity) and will make a new post for that. I didn't keep record of the time it took to paint it  which was too long in my opinion , but now that I got AP working for me.. blending /painting brushes etc... things shouldn't take so long.

    I'd like to chime in on this as well. A choice of larger font/icon sizes would be great. Out of the box it was the first complaint I had about the program, which is AMAZING!

    YES please ....
    For people (like me) who wear glasses, this can indeed be a handicap. For example, I myself wear glasses with a built-in prism and +11 diopter, and am obliged to increase the scale and layout of my screen to 125% in order to work comfortably.
    But if I record my videos with that setting (125%), a lot of shortcuts no longer function !!
    So I first have to reset my screen settings to 100% scale, which is very annoying and tiring.

    Ah Ok if it does what you need that's fine.
    Hmm hard to tell, I don't know and thus can't speak for others here, but programmers are more used to it, due to variable naming conventions and the like in several prog languages.

    Affinity photo is such a great tool and I would like to see an image/ thumbnail based UI for the Share your work portion of this forum.
    Right now with the text based forum presentation, it doesn't really lend itself to browsing , in my option.
    A richly, decorative  page with the current  thumbnails of images created by the users would be very attractive and would invite more participation within the share your work forum.
    Your thoughts would be appreciated. see attachments.
