  1. You'll see soon enough. Regarding the roadmap, anyone want to bet that footnotes will be on that list?

    What's your top three pragmatic 1.7 wishlist?

    Will probably be a while before we start seeing more AI being added into these types of softwares, but it does sound pretty cool. I look forward to the day I will have to plug in my brain to just think up stuff on the spot.

    @Cecil One question, what do you mean by AI? That the program has an artificial intelligence to do the work for you?

    Issues with Resize Document

    Since no user has bothered bringing this issue up in either the bug report forums or in the suggestions forum, I guess I will. I am just simply going to refer to the discussion going on in this thread, since it sums up the issues going on with this feature: Apparently some changes were made to Resize Document during the Beta, which is why I posted this here. So, is this how it is supposed to work, or is it a bug? Some clarification by the developers would be highly appreciated. Thanks.

    Stock photo drag and drop not working

    I recall from some other thread that you can't open a stock photo as a new document by dragging the file from that panel. Oddly enough, you can drag and create a new file by opening your internet browser and drag whatever image you want into both an already existing file and as a new document file, which is at least a workaround. However, the panel should be changed to do the same, I agree.
  6. @IDT Adrian Hey, it seems like they fixed the bug in the latest Beta! Will have to check it out once I get the time.

    It's not possible click on the object to create selection

    @Guilherme Ferreira As Aamppaa said, you have to click on the thumbnail. In Affinity there is a difference between clicking on the layer thumbnail and clicking on the rest of the layer in the Layers panel. You can also add more to selection from other layers by holding down shift as well. This works too when selecting based on luminosity with ctrl + alt + L click on a thumbnail.

    is Crop to selection possible

    I think there should be several ways to do this in the Affinity Suite. Right now you can do it by creating a New From Clipboard document, but 1) it doesn't actually keep the DPI of the original file, which is a big no no in my eyes, and 2) this is hidden away in a menu when it could just as well be shown in the R click menu when clicking on layers. Here's a list of ways I would like to see in Affinity to make pixel perfect crops: The crop tool has a menu option to make crops based on selected layers or on empty pixel space. Create new document from clipboard needs to create a document based on original document DPI and should be accessible in the R click menu in the Layers panel. The Export Persona should have the option to make slices based on layers selected with pixel perfect cropping if you want to work with non-destructive cropping. Right now you can crop based on layers, but I haven't found a way to make it crop based on pixel perfect dimensions when working in Photo. Finally, the ability to create an Embedded Document while using R click on selected layers, which is basically what a Smart Object is in Photoshop. This would both solve two issues at the same time, since 1) it would make your original file do non-destructive cropping since it is embedded into the original file, and b) make creating embedded layers a lot faster than it currently is.

    Brush Size Not Appearing

    Tell me about it. Early last year Windows broke the feature completely in an update, which made it nearly impossible to draw when I used Photoshop at the time. Luckily the creative community found a workaround, but it was quite a bit of work.

    Box Blur not working in Publisher

    Hey again Pauls, I am back! Took a bit longer than expected to get back to this thread, but I have my reasons. Anyway, I have to report that somehow, the issue is a bit more complicated than I originally thought. Basically, Box Blur does work now for me, except that it also doesn't. I was working a bit more on the file last night and divided up my painting into separate parts in preparation for the final stages of refining my character in Photo, but that too divided up the layers I had masked to the character layer into three separate parts. For two of those layers, Box Blur works as it should in Publisher, but the third one does not. I am now uploading the file, and down below I post a screenshot showing what is actually going on on my screen, with the problem layer highlighted: As you can observe, I have what I presume are three identical Box Blur layers where one of them is broken.
  11. I tried opening up a file I was working on in Photo in Publisher, and I noticed that one of my filter layers, Box Blur, did not function at all in the program. Instead it created square lines across the entire canvas.

    Affinity Photo Customer Beta (

    Will we be able to rename our live AppData folder (Windows user) for 1.7.0 to "(Beta)" so we can move over all the keybinds, macros, and more?

    If you click the arrow in the top right corner of the link I sent in my previous message (it's a big icon with an arrow tilted 45 degrees to the right), you get transferred immediately to the video I linked to. There is also another video I linked in there that gives you some additional information about panels (they are the only posts with a video player and my name on them). If you got any more questions, ask ahead, and I'll see what I can do!
  14. That makes sense. If the design was intentional, then it isn't a bug. That's why you have suggestion forums to argue for why those intentional design decisions should change. Other developers for other softwares do the same distinction between what is a bug and an intentional design decision as well. I've been Beta testing Blender 2.80 since December, and they do the same thing there by dividing up bug reports and feature/design suggestions to different forums to make sure they stay organized.

    Ctrl+Shift+Clicking Thumbnail?

    Did you try making a new layer and fill the canvas with colour to see if the selection worked (works also with Create New Fill Layer in the Layers menu at the top of the screen)? If not, then maybe report that as a bug.
  16. The more supported file formats for exporting the merrier, I say!
  17. That seems a bit inconsistent with the Windows version where it is R click to add to selection. Could us Windows users get ctrl (or shift) to add as well then?
  18. Why aren't you using 1.7.0? If you are going to report a bug, you should really be using the latest live version of the software (unless you are a Beta tester).
  19. Then I guess we don't disagree on much!

    Box Blur not working in Publisher

    Sure thing. Not at home right now, but I will send it over once I am along with a message.
  21. Oops. Was reading and writing on mobile, so I didn't realize what program he was working in. The image also looked like a pixel image on my small screen. XD
  22. Multiply, as the above poster said. There is however a more advanced way to permanently remove the background that works on any layer: 1. Ctrl + shift + alt + L click the layer thumbnail in the Layers panel to create a luminosity selection. 2. Ctrl + I to inverse the image colours (you can later use the same command to revert this after doing the final step). 3. Create a Fill layer to copy the luminosity selection onto it. 4. You now have separated the image from the background with the added benefit of being able to change colour of your image live. You can also automate this entire process by recording a macro.
  23. @fde101 I think it's fine that Affinity does not have those as of now. It would be cool to see them develop a more extensive suite down the road, but you can find decent options in those areas elsewhere, making them not as crucial for Serif to develop. However, it's far harder to completely replace InDesign, Illustrator, and especially Photoshop. I would rather see the developers focus on building their current three core softwares before branching off, since there is a lot of room for them to grow and improve. That said, once they've done a lot of that legwork, I would like to see them move on to animation, specifically an After Effects type of workflow for animating vectors. As someone who has been doing a bunch of GUI design work the last few years, being able to animate vectors in After Effects have been a pretty essential part of creating prototypes of how menus should move and act. This is because of how Adobe has created a symbiosis between Illustrator and After Effects, which I think Serif could do even better with their current level of software symbiosis. With the current tools available in Photo, Designer, and Publisher, as well as some proper integration between them and a new Animation Persona, you could also open up ways to do animated GIFs, webdesign prototypes, animated UI prototypes for various types of software, and of course vector (i.e. Flash/Animate) and pixel animation (i.e. TV Paint). Lots of creative possibilities.

    Ctrl+Shift+Clicking Thumbnail?

    You can also keep adding luminosity selections from other layers by holding down shift as well. Can be pretty handy from time to time.
  25. My problem with the @ system personally is that it doesn't take into account the people who have already written in a thread when sorting them. So if I would @ someone like @Alfred, I would have type his whole name before I get that as my first option, or go down into the list to search. Granted, his name is not the trickiest to find on the list, but I've had some occassions where it takes a while to find the right one.
