  1. Thank you, MEB (Beta 1.8. not public yet, as far as I see, so I can't go test myself.)
  2. > bump Yes please ;P
  3. "Sorry this regressed with 1.7 - we'll get it fixed this week." Glad to hear ;P
  4. Very happy with the sticky settings for cropping, though :-)

    Photo 1.7 Request

    > make the ... ratio sticky Yes, please.
  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  (I jumped from 111 to 120, so don't know about earlier updates).
  8. This is solved with Beta! 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.
  9. 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.

    Red Eye Removal

    Red Eye Removal

    > It works on some images but not on others It depends on the intensity of the red. To see what I mean, download https://unsplash.com/photos/ijyd3Uz6ncY, open it in AP and activate the red eye tool. Now click into the red capes one after one, just one click per cape. You see that some of the capes turn grey after one click, others don't. Now go click on the capes again, multiple times. I get most of the red away like that. --- And yes, it would be super practical if that worked for other colours than red, too.

    Red Eye Removal

    > What is the trick to using it? - there needs to be a red patch somewhere on your photo - select the tool - click into the red patch
  14. Hi :-) This will be obsolete once sticky settings are here. Until then I work with cropping presets - it would be sweet if my own presets were added at the top of the list instead of the bottom.
  15. Solved: reordering the categories is possible in Beta

    Inpainting Tool not working?

    Hello curtds When you have the pixel layer selected and try to use the inpainting tool, do you see the red marking where you want to inpaint? If yes, maybe the transparency is set too low (I always have it on 100% for inpainting). If the red marking doesn't appear: can you close the photo and open it again and use inpainting as the first step? If both aren't helping: would you post a screenshot of the Layers panel?

    Tools not working on all photos

    As far as I know if you only want to see one person what you write, you have to click on that person's name and send a message via their profile. But if you reply in a thread, it makes sense that all people following (or finding) that thread see your post. And yes, your reply goes to the bottom, so it helps if you include what exactly you're replying to; for example by using the 'Quote' button or just copy & paste. PS about the forum: if you get stuck with another AffinityPhoto tool you might want to post in 'Questions' instead of 'Resources'. Full list of subforums: https://forum.affinity.serif.com.

    Good to hear that you got it to work.

    Tools not working on all photos

    > I can see that the tool selects the area which I want to work on So the area _does_get a red overlay before you release the mouse button? Check the value for opacity? (edit: See screenshot) If that's not helping, maybe start with another of your own pictures: easy candidates are twigs in a blue sky, or bright spots on an otherwise dark background (just to get it to work).

    Tools not working on all photos

    Or, if you're not using layers on purpose yet (some actions create a new layer on their own): make sure your background layer is activated to get the inpainting tool to work (see screenshot). If that's not working either, try the inpainting tool as the _first_ step after opening a photo in AffinityPhoto. PS: I use that tool a lot. When I get a result I like, but am not finished yet, I go to the navigation on the top and select 'Document – Add Snapshot'. Then I continue cleaning up my photo; if the next inpainting action doesn't give the result I want I can go back with 'Document – Restore Snapshot'.
