  1. Steps to reproduce: - Create new document - Add two separate Art Text objects - Add effect Inner Glow to first text object, modify radius and color - Right click first text object in layer panel, Copy - Click second text object in layer panel - Edit / Paste Style for the second text object - Second text object now has some random Fx enabled on it, but Type of Fx, Radius and Color does not carry over Paste Fx doesn't work either, has the same problem.
  2. When creating an "Art Text" layer panel shows text content as well for each of the texts. The updating of this panel is incorrect. After typing a text fast and waiting, the layer name in the layer panel keeps showing some earlier state of the text content. When clicking away in the layer panel to another layer, the name is suddenly updated. My expected behavior is that the layer panel keeps up to date with text content, or fixes itself after some short user idle time.
  3. Also please make the displacement map viewable / editable similar to a mask.
  4. You wanted to say "x_input = 2*x_output" I suppose
  5. He said "For *output* pixel x=25, apply equation x=x*2 to read from *input* pixel 50.." Since 50=25*2, so he meant InputX = OutputX * 2.
  6. Sounds like a re-occurring issue with understanding terminology used by many people. "Non-destructive" is often understood as having the ability to do steps A, B, C, then return to whatever changes/settings were applied at step A and being able to modify them withing having to redo steps B and C, and still get the same image as if you would have re-done steps B and C. You might say that "non-destructive" is not a good name for this ability, but you should understand that it is viewed as a benefit by many. Since Affinity obviously aspires to be non-destructive in this sense with the many live adjustments, so it makes sense to point out that neither of the solutions presented can achieve that. Consider step A to be the creation of the shape, step B being the creation of blur layer, and step C being the copy of the shape to be also a mask of the blur layer. You can not change the parameters or type of shape (step A) and get a consistent result, without also repeating step C and copy the new shape to be mask of the blur. Edit: Note that I am assuming that one would like to reproduce the original Background Blur, not just a blur masked to a shape. In proper background blur you have a shape/image with it's own colors and when that is blended in, the background color used for blending is blurred before blending. See the animation with the watch earlier where the layer with background blur has a darker gray color and text as well.
  7. Since the equations are used to determine what the input x and input y are, the x and y occurring within them will surely refer to output x and output y. I don't think they went and implemented an equation system solver!
  8. Please see screen-recording. This time a mask is applied to a shape, but not much difference.
  9. Results are consistent with the origin being at the top, and y being further and further negative going down.
  10. Using AP on Win10. When a pixel layer is alt-clicked, the layer contents are displayed in isolation. If in this state the pixel layer is deleted by dragging it into the bin in the layers panel, the image shown is refreshed and the deleted layer is no longer shown. However if you alt-click a mask of a layer, show the mask in isolation, and then delete the parent layer of the mask, thereby the mask as well, it still remains to be showed in the image area. It should refresh in the same way instead to not show the no-longer-existing mask.
  11. It is already answered. The feature is there in Affinity Designer. While editing your document in AD, you can create a text on a circle, then return to Affinity Photo to continue other edits in your document. This was obviously a conscious decision on the part of the devs. In order to be able to use the features of both Photo and Designer, you need to buy both Photo and Designer (DUH).
  12. This will again recolor the whole image. Anything not completely white would take on a shade of blue. I think you misunderstand OP. He has an image with many colors, with a black grid on top, all within a single pixel layer. And would like to recolor the pixels of the black grid.
  13. Won't this make any non-white area of the image partially transparent, and this partially effected by the blue coloration?
