  1. Hi Walt. Yep. It said I couldn't enable hardware acceleration anyway as I don't have a supported graphics card. I can't actually change the settings as, in accordance with help, "The setting is inaccessible if Affinity Photo is unable to detect a compatible GPU on your system". Thanks.
  2. On RAW files I'm consistently getting 5 secs for V1 and 25 secs for V2 for a 32.55mb file. I don't have graphic acceleration - but is that relevant to loading?
  3. Well, there you go .. Just logged into Photo Beta and the update available notification popped up - hopefully will continue to. As far as I am aware, nothing has changed my end since last night when I still had the problem. One of life's mysteries ...
  4. Thanks, Patrick. As far as I can see, my Bitdefender firewall is giving full permissions to Photo, both beta and full - but I'll keep checking. In the meantime, The Affinity Photo Help says this : Software Updates Sets the frequency to which the app will check for any software updates. You can switch off update checking by selecting 'Never' However, I can't find this in Preferences under Edit where Help says this setting is. Does this not exist any more? If it does, perhaps this has been changed somehow...
  5. Not sure if this is a bug, the software has changed a setting, or I have... For the last few beta updates and at least the last full version update, the "update available" prompt on the startup splash screen has not appeared when updates available. I'm on beta 1.9.41048 and full currently - I've only found out about updates because I searched the forums. Thanks.
  6. Great, that's cleared the problem. Many thanks.
  7. Hi. I have Photo installed as both beta and published versions. On published I start off with a circle showing the size of the paintbrush but as I move the brush the circle disappears and I am left with an icon. The beta works as expected. Thanks.
  8. Though if I were being picky... If I have the list showing and scroll down using the arrow keys, when I get to "pin light" only the top half of the words show and further down "hue" doesn't show up.
  9. Thanks, carl123. The downside to this method seems to be that each down arrow press records a separate item in the history box. I now realise why I couldn't remember and that is because I didn't use arrow keys, anyway - so this was new to me. Rather, I just used the scroll bar, if necessary, to get to the section of blend modes I wanted and then hovered the cursor over the different blend modes to see what they did.
  10. And here. And it seems to do the same in the production build 1.8.3. I can't remember how it worked pre 1.8.3.
  11. Hi Chris This still seems to be a problem - including the latest beta. Thanks Nigel
  12. Hi. Can the search line on the help screen (available pressing F1) be made lighter, please? It is so dark, I can barely see where to type in my search and it often causes the top of the help screen to seem to merge with the rest of the screen. The light UI version shows up nicely, of course, but I generally prefer the dark UI. Many thanks.
  13. Hi. Not sure if this is a bug - or by design or it has to work this way and I've only just noticed... When using the paint brush sliders to change opacity, flow or hardness, if I move the cursor away from the sider it comes away as an arrow instead of the brush. To get the brush, I have to click somewhere. Unfortunately, gammy paws here either manages to click on the "invisible" part of the slider and so change the value; clicks on the image and gets a brush mark where not wanted; or clicks just off the image and gets a bit of an unwanted brush mark on the image where the brush is rather wider than the pointer. When using the actual numbers to change value, this isn't accepted until I click but the cursor does come away as a brush and not a pointer so I know where/how large the brush stroke will appear - though I do have to click on the image (or tab on or off the image). Thanks.
