    Nighternet got a reaction from anon1 in Merge down layer slow, needs progress bar   
    It needs progress bar for every process. With the ability to abort it.

    Nighternet got a reaction from Hus Sketch in Feature Requests for Painting- just a few productivity requests to improve the painting experience   
    Just the ability to customize the UI toolbox would be sufficient. Say, adding a customized persona and removing all others. For example, I don't need 50% of the things in AP today, but not having Dodge and Burn as two different icons TOGETHER drive me insane, since I use them intermittently. Same with having to go to a different persona to delete the selected area. A simple ALT button in the bottom left corner together with the pencil click, bringing options would be easier to implement, I guess.

    Nighternet got a reaction from LilleG in Pixelmator Pro   
    We don't need freakin machines to think for us. We need a stable and capable app. Pixelmator on iPad is not even in the same league with AP, regardless of its popularity.
     
    Having 90% of the revenue stream coming from upgrades is frustrating. It turned Adobe into a landlord. Especially when it's hard to imagine what else can be upgraded. Adding some bogus features will not help. What else do you want automated? Automatic characters removal? Like former spouses or girlfriends. Turning sunsets into sun dawns? making color "nicer' automatically?

    I share your frustration, having lost few hours of work (and a good artwork too). Autosave didn't save all latest edits of course. Don't know why. To me, the most important question of them all (and defining whether I'll buy a new Pro 2017 or stay with my Pro 2016) is whether this is simply AP code related thing, or iOS with the existing hardware are not capable of the professional level work. Meaning very high-res files with many layers. Some people say it's much better on iOS 11, but I have too many other things to experiment with Beta.

    I wonder if iPad Pro is even capable of handling super high res. files with many layers. Other programs simply limit the max. resolution and layers.

    Nighternet got a reaction from anon1 in iPad: See Layer in Isolation – like Option-Click   
    Since there is no keyboard, why not to add a solo icon to the layer menu?

    Keyboard connected to iPad is an oxymoron. It simply creates an inferior laptop. Get a laptop with the detachable touch screen. The reason it's sold is just the gadget madness.

    Nighternet got a reaction from LeeS in iOS photo library intergration   
    I know, but this is counterintuitive. Why not simply "save". Photo library should be the first choice in all of the interaction with external images, including place, save, load, mix, displace, etc.

    Nighternet got a reaction from LilleG in "Duplicate layer" and alpha lock are better off in Layers menu   
    It took me some time to find it in the command menu. Still, there is no layer alpha lock. Have to use individual brush alpha feature.

    Nighternet got a reaction from Muffins in On-screen Option/Alt Key is CRITICAL.   
    No, please no three finger actions! When you paint with your right hand you can't really fully control how many fingers touch the surface for sure. Finger taps are the most insanely inaccurate and non-intuitive gestures. Holding the ALT button with left thumb to change the brush to the eyedropper would be ideal flow. Press and hold can only be made with another hand, not pencil since it takes pencil press as a pressure. If finger rejection os on, it wouldn't work either.
    BTW. Astropad does have the ALT button.

    Nighternet got a reaction from malyKeri in 100% view icon   
    Two finger tapping sometimes toggle the view, sometimes brings in menu "cut", "delete", etc. This is a big hassle. Viewing the whole thing is VERY important and is used all the time. A very prominent "100%" (unrotated) icon somewhere under the left thumb is needed.

    Nighternet got a reaction from Muffins in 100% view icon   
    I know. And that's the problem: sometimes system takes the first tap as a single tap and opens the popover. The second tap acts as an action on the menu. I've deleted an artwork i worked for almost an hour like this because the second tap happened to hit the delete it. And for some reason, the undo didn't work.
     
    Finger taps can only be supplemental to icon clicks on any mobile interface, not the only ways. Besides, double tap returns to the previous state, not the full-screen unrotated view.
     
    BTW. Any permanent deletion should be prompted. This is the ABC of any UX

    Nighternet got a reaction from RHiNO in Painting persona   
    This is, probably, too much to ask for a program, that's 90% there. Painting is vastly different from photo manipulation. Combining both in one program is great, but while one paints, he doesn't usually need other non-related features and tools, But he needs all of the necessary tools right there, literally at the left finger tip. With this in mind, it'd be good to have a "painting persona" added to the top personas.
     
    Things nice to have in the toolbox (left menu):
    Marquee tool to move, re-size, rotate distort (drag corner anchors) Selection tools (I know, we have a whole sophisticated selection persona, but there needs to be some way to select a part of an image right there): rectangle, lasso quick selection brush magic wand Paint brushes: opaque (oil) transparent (watercolor) Retouch brushes dodge burn sponge (saturate/desaturate) blur sharpen Liquify brush (could be few) Eraser (+ erase to history) Show/hide mixing palette Show/hide reference image (see how ArtRage does it) Fav. brushes (your saved custom brushes). Choosing one automatically switch to the brush type it was assigned to (dodge for example). More - expose other custom brushes by moving all tools up. Bottom controls (sliders and switches). They have to be available without extra clicking and going to a submenus. This is like asking an artist to go to another room to pick another brush from the box every time he needs one. There is enough room horizontally. 
    Brush size Brush opacity Flow Brush hardness Wet paint on/off Finger rejection on/off (optional, can be part of preferences) Show 100% Hide/show controls (full screen) This would make your app a dream for artists too, not just photographers!
