  1. I guess you're right - I did not noticed the new beta. * Fixed temporary files not being cleared properly on shutdown (causing prompts to save or discard on subsequent app runs) * Changed file recovery dialog to let you quit the app, and added a 'No' option
  2. Photo on Windows 10 64 I had some trouble with yesterday's session and since that Photo always starts with Untitled recovered document. I actually had a valid copy of the image so I just wanted to close the document but Cancel did not close it. (By the way, should not be the second button "No" or "Discard"?) I was forced to save it with a different name and then I was finally able to close Photo. However the same scenario repeats every time I start Photo again and again...
  3. I guess Serif just did not care about Wikipedia at all so the article is still free to edit. That means you can fix the misleading article yourself. =)
  4. It's really nice to see that the new option "Use Shift key to cycle tool groups" in also disables switching to "previous tool". Thanks!
  5. I understand your intention but it doesn't really work for me. =( While I'm sketching I usually place my left hand on hotkeys for Brush and Erase and I am totally focused on the picture. From time to time I take a short break to analyze the latest changes and then I'm not sure what tool is selected. Instead of looking at tools I just press B and I start painting - only to find out that I am actually erasing. It might not sound like a big problem but it happens to me quite often and it's really distracting. Please make this behaviour optional - I'm sure there are more people who would be pleased with such change. (I have seen several threads discussing this feature.)
  6. Sorry - actually I already did that long time ago so you are right it can be solved without additional option. =} Unfortunately I can't find any way how to get rid of switching between "Brush" and "previous tool": 1. "V" sets "Move Tool" 2. "B" sets "Paint Brush Tool" 3. "B" now sets "Move Tool" and it's rather confusing. =( I suppose this behaviour could be made optional without breaking other hot keys etc.
  7. Another option would be a check box that would completely disable tool cycling. I usually use just the basic tool of each group and when I sometimes need to select another one I do it with my pen. Just my two cents...
  8. It has been discussed before. I am not sure why it's not optional... It should not be too difficult to implement. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/58957-whats-with-the-tool-toggling/
  9. I've been using Affinity Photo for a few weeks and this is definitely the most annoying thing I had encountered. When I'm painting I switch tools using hotkeys a lot and I don't look at the tools panel at all so I often end up using other tool then I wanted. I had already removed all hotkey groups but this option is sorely missed. I think that adding such option should not be that complicated...? =)
  10. Thanks MEB! I'll check that again in next update. =)
  11. While testing Affinity Photo for Windows I noticed several minor but rather annoying things. This is the most obvious: I'm used to creating rather wild selections and then feathering them. I usually use the same settings repeatedly (it basically depends on the size of the image) but every time I open the Feather dialog the slider is set to 0 and I have to move it again to the previously used value. I noticed similar thing in Liquify persona (the brush size is always preset to the same value) too and I'm sure there are many other places and settings like this... It would be really useful if the app could "remember" the last used settings because it's very likely the user will use it again. Presetting it automatically would save the user some unnecessary clicking.
