  1. Forget the old variable theory. =) I did another test on my second computer and it seems I did not test it properly yesterday. I think I opened too many documents to see the real problem. Clicking a menu item restores all minimized documents except the one that is checked as active. That also means it does not work with a single open document. I suppose it should work too.
  2. 3. Another Brush/Colour picker quirk: Both tools "remember" their own settings of primary and secondary colours (i.e. which one is active). I often end up painting with a wrong colour because I pick a colour to a primary colour circle, but when I switch to Brush it swaps the colours back to its last settings (which can be different) and I start to paint with the secondary colour.
  3. 1. "Grow/Shrink selection", "Feather", "Smooth", "Refine edges" and "Outline" (and I'm sure there are other similar options too) still do not remember the last used parameters - not even in a current session. That's really rather annoying. 2. Another similar thing is a colour picker. I usually prefer picking colours from the current layer but the default setting is "Global", it is document dependent and it does not get saved with the document. The option "Synchronise tools between documents" does not seem to affect this at all (a bug?) so I keep changing that setting over and over again every time I start a new document or load an old one... I think the colour-picker settings should apply to brush Alt+click too... https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/100377-request-change-altclick-colour-picker-shortcut-settings/
  4. I have just tried that in (installed over It did not work at first but it started to work as expected after I changed some settings ("Documents open in a new floating Window" and "Documents open in a current windows group") back and forth. Maybe some old variable in settings did not get overwritten? While experimenting with it I noticed another oddity: if you open the preferences windows and Alt+Tab to another app and back, the preferences windows hides behind floating documents and it becomes virtually invisible. I had to move or minimize the floating documents to get back to the preferences.

    First composite

    As far as I remember AP by default creates "global" Layer Adjustment so if you want to adjust just one layer you have to place the adjustment as a child layer by mouse. The other option is to go to Assistant Manager and set "Add adjustment as child layer" which I did a long time ago. What about tinting the bird a bit to match the overall lighting..?
  6. I find it quite funny that you came up with a classic Czech joke or typo: the city's name is "Ostrava" (probably derived from "sharp water") while "otrava" means "poisoning".
  7. I suspected that too. I hope it will get eventually fixed - it's really a small detail but it should be quite easy to add those characters to a template...
  8. It's not really a problem (OCD strikes again ) but I still wonder why some user's "Location" in this forum are displayed with a colon and a space and others (like mine) are not. Is there a logic behind it?
  9. I see the bug is still present in AP
  10. Another occurrence... This time I noticed that the mouse cursor turned to "hand" so it made sense that mouse did not work the way I expected. When I switched to my tablet and pen the cursor immediately changed according to the current tool settings which was Move tool.
  11. I use (left) Alt a lot with brush tool to pick a colour so it seemed like a promising theory but I can't make it happen. I have just pressed Alt several times and I still can use mouse to move and resize layers. Are there any other steps needed to cause the problem? Last time I noticed it after I had used Ctrl+C and Ctrl+V from one document to another but have just I repeated this scenario several times and mouse is still working fine.
  12. Damn, you're right... Thanks! So the windows are not really lost but it still feels strange and, well, messy. With one open and minimized document Alt-Tab shows two AP's task/windows - one of them is the open document and the other is the empty AP window. It does not matter which one I choose - I always get to the document opened in the foreground so the other one is a dummy. I think the new document should never open minimized and clicking on an open minimized document in Windows menu should bring its window back to the foreground.
  13. I still feel AP's "Window" menu needs expanding with other functions (cascade, side by side, etc.) so I don't use it very often and maybe this issue is not related only to the latest beta version...? Anyway, I had two windows/documents opened and I minimized them. I expected to see them on the bottom of the main AP window (is that right?) but they both disappeared. They were still listed in Window menu but clicking on them did not do anything. I even created a new document and it was invisible too. To display the documents again I had to use Dock or Alt-Tab from AP and back.
  14. I noticed similar behaviour too. I hoped it would be fixed in the latest beta together with other tablet issues but it still happens from time to time. Unfortunately I have not verified a reliable scenario how to invoke it yet. Today I noticed it after I copied a part from other image (i.e. it was not vector). I wanted to use mouse for a change to resize it but it was impossible. I had to resize it a little bit with the tablet first and then the mouse started to work too.
