  1. Hi Calllum,... And thank you. While attempting to make a recording I noticed something strange. Every time I clicked, the word "paste” would show up near the cursor. It turns out, that I forgot I had installed a small utility called PopClip to test out, and it was interfering. After removing it, everything works as it should. Thanks again.
  2. I recently upgraded to MacOS Catalina. My refine edges seemed to start actingwonky after that. When I choose to refine, the red mask shows up as expected. When I draw along the edges, all seems okay until the app finishes. At that point, the mask disappears and the marching and are completely gone. If I click Apply anyway (without seeing the results), the marching ants reappear and show where refinement took place, but I have to hit refine again, in order to do more work. Also, the previews only work while the mask is visible. Is anyone else experiencing this? I've been using AffinityPhotofor years and I can work around this glitch but it really slows me down. Any help would be much appreciated.
  3. Go to the Image menu and click on “Use RAW as original”. Toward the bottom of the list. Click the button with the ellipsis (…) and choose “Edit in Affinity Photo”. The instructions will tell you to open Affinity Photo. When you open Affinity, the image will be open in the Develop Persona
  4. I'm not sure what you mean by manually doing this. Is this the video you say is of no help? https://youtu.be/J20_T-YQSYw
  5. hiya eddietheone, If you are just starting out playing with layers, instead of using a black or white brush, try using a gray one and see if that gives you any ideas.
  6. Hi Drw. If you use the export item under the file menu in the photo persona, your settings will stay. The export persona is generally used for blogging and internet transfer, slicing parts of an image and reduces the file size. Hope that's helpful.
  7. Hiya Lee D. Running Photo Beta 1.5 (RC 1) and the fix hasn't made it in yet. Any idea when it might get fixed. Not being pushy.... just anticipating. ;)
  8. Thanks, Lee D. So glad you could reproduce it, and it wasn't just me. So I guess I don't have to buy a new computer. ;)
  9. Okay, so I found a work around that I can work with. Apparently, this phenomenon only happens if I have the screen set to full screen. Turning off full screen removes the clicking turning the tools on and off. FYI, the same works for the beta 8. Still not sure why it happens on full screen though. :blink:
  10. Hiya Patrick Connor. Yep, I'm using Photo 1.4.3 on Sierra !0.12.1. Also, check my note to LilleG.
  11. i'm guessing it may have to do with a system file, LilleG, because it worked on beta 7 but now Beta 8 does the same thing as 1.4.3. :unsure:
  12. Weird. Weird. Weird. For some unknown reason, my tools (left of screen) started to appear and disappear with each click.This is with "dock tools" unchecked. If I dock the tools, it works fine, but I prefer using 2 columns and docking only allows me 1 column. I have tried: • Restarting while holding down control key. •Removing 'com.seriflabs.affinityphoto.plist' and restarting. •Deleting the app and re-downloading from Apple. No change. Any ideas or suggestions?
  13. Great, MEB. > Issue logged to be looked at. Thanx.
  14. I have only recently noticed this since I rarely use Separated Mode and have only added a second monitor to my work environment in the past few days. When opening a raw file, in the Develop Persona and in Separated Mode, the Basic Panel positions itself in the middle of the screen and runs from the top to bottom of the screen. I cannot reach the top of the panel to close it, nor can I move it. I am able to extend either side edge, but that’s all. This behavior is repeatable on my machine on both the MAS and Beta versions (1.4.1 and 1.4.2 beta 4) of Affinity Photo. I have tried: * restarting Affinity Photo * starting up Affinity from launch while holding control key * restarting the computer (MacBook Pro) * reinstalling Affinity Photo I should note that this happens whether or not I am using one monitor or two. Any ideas? TIA
