  1. Did you checked the feather amount? If you end up with a round selection instead of a square, it can be because of the feather option. Try setting it at 0.

    Wrong export in AP and AD

    Was it made with the beta version of AP? It seems parts of the file are saved with different zoom options. Some can't be zoomed more than 75% (top left) or less (bottom right). @carl123 a little part of GRUA 20 was missing. Did you restored the missing part doing screenshots at different zoom levels? It would be interesting to know for @sorinciupitu, if some other files are corrupted. I wonder if it's a bug in the way AP/AD store parts of the file. And if it's occuring only (?) when storing history. I usually don't use this feature and don't know much about problems encountered with those files. ok3w.afphoto

    [ADe] Book Cover - The War Of The Worlds

    You could have gone SF-classical font (I don't know why, but I'm thinking about old Blade Runner poster or books) SF fonts

    I just got this update and those fonts are installed on my little laptop, and there's no problems, AP and AD can launch.

    [ADe] Book Cover - The War Of The Worlds

    Hi ! I love it, there are nice textures on the planets, but I found the background sort of "flat". And, perhaps again because of the black background, I feel it need more interaction between the four elements: red planet, title, alien, Earth. For now they look like a strong centered column in the middle. I think you can play more with the font of the title, too, for now it look really classical, and hu... boring . Difficult to say what is missing, but you've strong and interesting parts... it just need a little bit more "fun" or "crazy" somewhere Sorry if I'm lacking the vocabulary to say this in a more constructive way!

    Crash while loading Affinity Photo

    Did you installed some fonts or are you using some other application that load fonts when a document need them? I have this problem sometimes when a document is open in inDesign and had loaded some specific fonts for this document, and I can't open AP (but sometimes I can open AD...) It doesn't happen everytimes with the same document, but with differents andI couldn't find a pattern to upload files for Serif to look at this problem. A trick that could work is opening AP and AD first, and other apps later. Or searching which font(s) you installed last, (if you installed some recently) and uninstall them.
  7. Sadly, when you create a slice from a shape ("yellow slices"), only the shape and its content will be exported. If you use those for delimiting areas, you'll only have blank/white images when exporting. You'll have to use the "violet slices", that you need to create manually and give same position, width and heightas your shapes if you want to export parts of your map. Other options are to copy-paste your map in each "yellow slices" (but a pain if you need to do some modifications later... I didn't try to use a big map as a symbol in AD), or to click on each shape, get a selection from it and export with the option "area: selection and background", but it take longer and it's not a nice workflow as using the Export persona could be. Perhaps someone has another idea? I use a lot the export persona, and it would be usefull to at least be able to convert "yellow slices" to "violet slices". This Persona can be use for different purposes than UI design with more options.
  8. I don't do a lot of macros, but I saw some opening a panel with different sliders for different effects. Perhaps it's possible this way?

    Personal Bible Meditation (and some process notes)

    Really interesting. I'm usually picky about fonts and handmade letters, but yours are fine. Is there a coloured version?

    Vintage Lines - Vector Brushes (Free)

    Nice textures, but we can see some patterns repeating (lines 3 & 4).
  11. Some another usefull features: slice from selection (part(s) of an image or multiple objects) => one new slice slices from selections (part(s) of an image or multiple objects) => new slices slice from mask (only the visible part define the slice w & h = solve the problem of transparent pixels to trim) being able to hide slices' borders but the current one (selected). Would be very usefull when slices overlap other ones. convert "yellow slice" to "violet slice" and vice versa a new sort of slice: created with visibility from selected layer to background -- not above -- and all objects below are and can be (un)selected. This would work with "slice from selection" too, to define an area first. This would avoid dupplicating layers to get another slice with an object with different color, i.e. and keep our Export persona clean, not needing to rename slice before export for a different version or dupplicating object when not needed but export.
  12. @liltus, Image layers are like embedded, you can replace the image by another one or the same you had modified in another program. The image layer will keep it original PPI, and if you resize it you'll see PPI information and pixels size at the top of the screen. Once rasterized (=> pixel layer), the PPI will be the same as the document's.
  13. @carl123 you're right! Damn! My first answer (that I deleted) was about ctrl+E that works fine with pixel layers, as you say, and doesn't need to un-nest the mask or anything... But I end up thinking and testing with image layer... Why do it simple when we can do complicated? So I can put my previous screenshot about ctrl+E action
  14. +1 And nested style/GREP, scripts... there're so many things usefull and fun in ID that it'll be difficult to find a replacement or to wait for such features in a new application. I spend years doing "manually" some search and replace in QXD dreaming about being able to use some regular expressions... Some features are only used by advanced users (I know a lot of people doing without and using fast clicking instead...) but it's nice to be able to think about a problem and resolve it with such tools or with scripts when needed.
  15. @carl123 The problem with "image" layer is that you can't rasterise them and keep the adjustement layers (they are applied and all is rasterised). An option to rasterise/apply mask and preserve adjustement layers would be usefull. Merge down (ctrl+E) will merge (a mask) with the next pixel layer will not merge with the image layer, but with another sub pixel layer.
