  1. Very happy with the sticky settings for cropping, though :-)

    Photo 1.7 Request

    > make the ... ratio sticky Yes, please.
  3. 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 presets: make ux better

    Hi I'm on 1.7.0.120. 1) When cropping, the presets are too hidden. There is a simple solution: label the button 'Presets' instead of putting a cogwheel icon on it. 2) Adding my own presets is possible, but not obvious. In addition to how it is now, can you bring back the option 'Add Preset' in the pulldown menu behind 'Mode:', like it is in 1.6.7?

    Cropping presets: make ux better

    Thank you for 2.
  6. 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.
  7. > solved ... by clicking the crop tool icon again after having cropped. Reveal needs to be checked. This feature has disappeared again in 1.7.0.120.  (I jumped from 111 to 120, so don't know about earlier updates).
  8. 1.7.0.105 I'd still like 6374 / 12902 to be solved.

    Crop tool additional history step (6374/12902)

    > possible ... by clicking the crop tool icon again after having cropped. Reveal needs to be checked. This feature has disappeared again in 1.7.0.120. (I jumped from 111 to 120, so don't know about earlier updates).
  10. 1.7.0.105, .106 This was fixed, but now it's back (see thread 8799). I have a photo in portrait dimensions (= height > width), I click on 1:1 -> the crop happens within the photo, as it should. I have a photo in landscape dimensions (= width > height), I click on 1:1 -> the crop happens around the photo, adding empty space within the crop. Please fix again. Edit: Will be looked at

    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 :-)

    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.
  15. 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.

    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
  20. 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.
