    Hi manu,
    I'm sorry for the inconvenience this is still causing you. The Crop code has been subject to various changes/improvements over the last few versions and it's still not working right. I will pass this to Andy and bump/update the report again.

    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?

    Hi @steps
    Some of the settings are sticky by now, for example some for cropping. It might be best if you start a new thread * and state _in the title_ of the thread which sticky setting(s) you are missing.

    * I don't think there's an active Beta at the moment, so maybe rather in the feature request forum.

    manu schwendener reacted to nwhit in Photo 1.7 Request   
    We routinely process 200-300 pics per session (yacht photos), many requiring straightening and resulting cropping/enlargement. In 1.6 we have routinely used the Develop Persona's Rotate and Scale tools due to a couple major issues with normal cropping in 1.6. With 1.7, would it be possible to please add the following to help our daily workflow?
    Within the Cropping Tool:
    1) Make the "Mode/Original Ratio" sticky (all our pics in these photo sessions have to be identical format);
    2) You have made the "Dark Border" sticky in 1.7 (THANK YOU!);
    3) Please add the Crop to Opaque button (as in the Panorama editing) to allow automatic cropping to the remaining pic after straightening.
    Thanks! Looking forward to the final 1.7.

    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.)

    All,
     
    Thanks for the input in this thread. We hadn't really considered the case where a user would reenter the crop tool after cropping before - so I have made the following changes for build .111
    - When reentering the crop tool, dragging inside the existing crop will move it, as opposed to creating a new crop.
    - Unless you press the "Reset" button on the context toolbar - in which case you can create a new crop by dragging.
    - Dragging the frame will always move the crop (as suggested by A_B_C).
    Hopefully this will make things a bit more useable,
     
    Thanks,
    Andy.

    manu schwendener reacted to Ron Potter in Crop Tool - Remember Crop Ratio or Favourite Crop Ratio   
    Each time the Crop Tool is selected, the Mode menu always  opens with Unconstrained. 
    If I am cropping a number of open photographs to, say, 6x4, I need to re-select the required ratio for each photograph.
    I would love to see a feature that allows the selected Crop Ratio to be remembered - each time another photograph is selected.  I would also love to see the selected Crop Ratio to be remembered between each Affinity Photo session.
    Such a feature would significantly improve workflow when the same crop ratio is applied to a series of photographs.

    And don't force me to have a grey background that is brighter than the photo. I don't mind if this is the default, but please let me change it in Preferences – User Interface.

    This would be a clear step backwards for me:

    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.

    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.

    > Isn't this how it's always been?

    I think so, too. And I use cropping a lot.

    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."

    Hi Alex,
    Isn't this how it's always been? It seems to be the case with 1.6 but I could be missing something.
    This is an awkward one because I don't think the current behaviour is a bug, it's just not the behaviour you want. I like being able to create a new crop but I can also appreciate you want to move the existing crop position.
    I think some new context tools could improve this behaviour and let the user make it act like they want. I believe cropping is something dev want to change at some point. They tried it for 1.7 but pulled the changes as they weren't happy with them.
    I put a few improvement requests in last week for sticky crop settings so hopefully we'll see those soon.

    That's just how he could reproduce it.

    All I do is use the adjustment tools and sometimes the display gets messed up and some times it doesn't (I never undock).

    Just sat down to learn the new Crop tool (very cool, by the way). But I noticed that turning Snapping off by un-selecting the snapping icon on the Toolbar actually does NOT turn it off, at least not in the Crop tool.

    Hi RNKLN
    I'm guessing you are doing this without a document open. It should update in real time when you have a document open. It is related to the document background no the workspace background
    Thanks
