    jackamus got a reaction from adirusf in Comparing AD with DrawPlus   
    I am really disappointed that in the time that Affinity has been out no real serious drawing suggestions have been added. I'm tempted to get a PC and install my old DrawPlus program which had more useful drawing features than Affinity has. I have asked, as well others, for Affinity to try and include most of these DP features but to no avail.

    jackamus got a reaction from thisldo in Saxophone Work in progress   
    I'm astonished at the very generous compliments AD users are giving my Saxophone work in progress. I really do not deserve it. I'm surprised that nobody as asked me how I created the first layer, saxophone edges?
    I can assure you that my drawing is not as clever as many think it is. Let me reveal how I created the first layer.
    1 I first found a suitable photograph of a saxophone.See attached pjeg.
    2 I then opened it in 'Photoshop' and converted in into greyscale mode and then used the filter 'Find edges'. This give me my first layer in AD. From then on I just used the original jpeg as a reference for all the different shapes and shading.
    This is not a work of original creation but more an exercise in using AD for producing an accurate copy.
    This is how I create my canvases when I do a painting from a photograph. I create a 'Find edges' jpeg and get it printed onto a canvas and then paint on top. It may be cheating but it saves me a lot of time in drawing.

    jackamus reacted to R C-R in Grey Scale pallet   
    My guess is they thought users either might not want to bother giving the palette a descriptive name or might not be ready to do that (particularly for document palettes) at creation time. Personally, I would be happier if the defaults were just "document palette" & "application palette," but what I really would like is a separate "Swatches Manager" Studio panel that allowed renaming, reordering, deleting, & duplicating palettes & swatches, offering drag & drop reordering & such.

    jackamus got a reaction from BobsDaubs in Pressure profiles   
    Quote from Ronnie McBride that I agree with.
    'You are correct jackamus! The profiles only save on a per project basis. I wish they would save to the application like a brush or something.'
    This would seem to be  a logical feature to have in view of saving brush profiles.
