    Move Crop Area After Reselecting Crop Tool Bug

    > When reentering the crop tool, dragging inside the existing crop will move it > Dragging the frame will always move the crop Both working in Beta 1.7.0.111, thank you :-)
  2. 1.7.0.105 I'd still like 6374 / 12902 to be solved.

    Crop tool additional history step (6374/12902)

    This is possible with Beta 1.7.0.111 Not via cmd+z, but by clicking the crop tool icon again after having cropped. Reveal needs to be checked. Thank you for adding this.
  4. This is solved with Beta 1.7.0.111! Not via cmd+z, but by clicking the crop tool icon again after having cropped. Reveal needs to be checked. Thank you for adding this.
  5. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/6374-crop-tool-additional-history-step: link no longer working, but topic not solved: When I crop a picture and then want to change the cropped area I click cmd+z. What I'd expect to happen: See the picture in the size like before the crop, but still show me the crop lines, so I can just drag the rectangle around or adjust its size. What happens: I get to see the picture like before the crop, but lose the lines, the ratio, the setting "overlay none". Background: I use my photos for postcards, the ratio is 148:105. I only see if a crop looks "right" after I cropped - I then often want to adjust it just a little bit - but have to start over again.

    Move Crop Area After Reselecting Crop Tool Bug

    > We hadn't really considered the case where a user would reenter the crop tool after cropping before I use that a lot: I make postcards from my photos and I always need several tries until I have found the crop that works best. But my intuitive workflow would be – select area (with preset proportions) – crop If I then want to adjust the crop, my impuls is cmd+z (= one step back = I see the whole photo again, including the rectangle I chose before, but with the parts outside the recangle visible again). Of course I can learn to use "click on the crop tool again" instead, and I'm looking forward to having that option. Just want to let you know that cmd+z would be the logical step for me to get there.

    Move Crop Area After Reselecting Crop Tool Bug

    > you don’t need the option of replacing an existing crop area with a new one from scratch? I don't think so, no. > You basically only want to adjust the crop area, when returning to an already made crop?  Yes. > my video This is with Reveal disabled. I was talking about Reveal enabled.

    Move Crop Area After Reselecting Crop Tool Bug

    Reveal enabled: > there should be a slider in the preferences that allows the user to adjust the opacity of the area outside the crop area Yes > I find the current area outside the crop area too bright. Me too > Click and drag outside to rotate I agree > Click and drag handles to resize I agree > Click and drag inside to create new crop I don't agree. To be consistent it needs to be "Click and drag inside to reposition" > ... create new crop You resize and/or reposition and/or rotate, then you press enter. > Click and drag frame Not necessary

    Cropping – please let me keep the background colour (.107)

    > 1.6.7 it also doesn't show the cropped parts when you go back to the Crop Tool again That is true. It is an enhancement in .110
  10. Hi. I'm splitting an older post in the hope that the single issues get addressed. Please let me keep the dark background colour when I'm cropping, like it is in 1.6.7.: background darker than the photo.

    Move Crop Area After Reselecting Crop Tool Bug

    > I was asking if you think they should be mutually exclusive. Ah. Thank you. 1) When Reveal is enabled, both should be possible: move and resize 2) When Reveal is disabled, I don't really care. Take the one that's easier to program. ----- I have another "problem" with this, though: I would like to use the behaviour of 1) "Reveal enabled" But I would also like my background to be dark, which I could achieve by unchecking Reveal. But then I lose the functionality of 1)

    Move Crop Area After Reselecting Crop Tool Bug

    > With Reveal enabled, I would want the crop to move as opposed to be resized. Why are they mutually exclusive? What I would like to happen: - I crop a photo - I have Reveal enabled - I click on the Crop Tool again - This shows me the original photo outside of the lines of my previous crop - Now I can decide if I want to move or resize the crop, just as I can when I use the Crop Tool for the first time

    Cropping – please let me keep the background colour (.107)

    It comes at a cost, though: I have to deactivate 'Reveal', which doesn't only hide the bright background but also the parts of the photo that I cropped off (if I click on the Crop Tool again).

    Move Crop Area After Reselecting Crop Tool Bug

    Ah. (It shows me the rest of the photo, thank you. But it also turns the background bright, which I'd rather have set to dark.) I agree with your post 1 then: it should be possible to reposition the crop frame by dragging it, also when you reselect the Crop Tool.

    I'm not seeing that behaviour in beta, either (on MacBook Pro).

    Move Crop Area After Reselecting Crop Tool Bug

    > rotating the image in the crop area has become more laggy in the last betas If I open the same photo in Beta.110 and in 1.6.7 there isn't a visible difference for me. I see what you mean with laggy, but no obvious difference between those versions. Again, maybe related to me working directly on the background layer.

    Move Crop Area After Reselecting Crop Tool Bug

    Your movies are intresting, A_B_C! Are you using AP on Windows? (Probably not, because you have been posting here since before the windows version existed.) AP has never behaved like this for me. – I apply a crop – I reselect the crop tool => This has never shown me the part of the photo again that I've cropped off in step 1. Never in the sense of 'since before AP officially launched'. I don't use layers, can the difference be related to that?

    Move Crop Area After Reselecting Crop Tool Bug

    > Isn't this how it's always been? I think so, too. And I use cropping a lot. > I would believe that a user who selects the Crop Tool after having made a crop is more likely to intend to adjust the crop > (either by moving the handles or by repositioning the frame) than to start anew from scratch. I absolutely agree. My proposition (AFP-413) was to not undo everything when I click cmd+z but only undo the cropping, while keeping the crop area marked as I had set it before – so I can adjust _a bit_ without having to start from scratch. > what about … uhm … sticky settings .110: "Crop tool remembers settings for darken, reveal, overlay. More to follow."
  19. Hi. I'm splitting an older post in the hope that the single issues get addressed. In AP 1.6.7 I choose the crop ratio via "Mode: ...". After I pick one, the pulldown menu closes automatically <= This is how it should be. In AP 1.7.0.106 I choose the crop ratio via the cogwheel icon. After I pick one, I have to close the the pulldown menu with an additional click on the cogwheel or outside the pulldown menu. Please close the pulldown menu automatically after I chose one of the crop ratios. Chris B already replied that it should behave like it does in 1.6.7 (and like it does in the beta on windows), but the thread didn't get an afp-... number to show me that it's logged to be looked at.

    Cropping – please eliminate new extra click (.107)

    It would also be good if the cropping ratio could be made sticky, so it remembers what I last used. (I make postcards from my photos, so I mainly use 5 preset custom ratios.)
  21. I seem to have misunderstood what 'sticky settings coming in 1.5' meant. My workflow: 1) I open a photo 2) I crop it to a custom preset [Mode -> scrolling down to one of my presets] 3) I switch from 'Overlay: Thirds grid' to 'Overlay: none' 4) I crop and export the photo What I expected to happen with 1.5 / sticky settings: 1) I open a photo 2) Mode is on the preset that I last used 3) Overlay is on 'none', because that's what I last used 4) I crop and export the photo What happens: I still have to change Mode: and Overlay: for every single photo I work on.

    Sticky settings for the crop tool [AP Mac]

    Fixed in Beta 1.7.0.110 8)
  23. Hi. I'm splitting an older post in the hope that the single issues get addressed. This would not be a problem if my settings were sticky (as Darken Border is by now). I'm on a 13 inch MacBook. Until 1.6.7. I have to change the Overlay setting to None for every single photo I'm cropping. In the 1.7.0 beta (now on .107) you introduce an additional click for me, because the Overlay setting is hidden behind the >> in the top right corner. Please make AP remember that I want Overlay set to None in 99% of all the photos I'm cropping. Until then, please let me decide which settings are hidden behind the >>, either by letting me drag&drop their position or by letting me uncheck the display for the one's I'm never using in Preferences – User Interface. Thank you.
  24. This is doubly fixed in .110, thank you! – I can see 'Overlay' in the context bar without an extra click AND – the setting for Overlay is sticky now This makes my workflow so much smoother.
