    I'd stay on V1 its not worth the hassle. Export the file from V2 in PSD which V1 can then open or use the cut & paste hack. I totally agree that a product that does this isn't worthy of as much respect as one that does.

    I infact solved with copy/paste.
    Hopefully I've saved only a file...

    I'll update V2 probably but this "forces" to update to the whole package. And you have to be sure any other colleauge you share files with have same version....not the best thing.

  2. I have a set of 21x29,7cm pages. Single pages.

    I want to add a master of 21.6 x 30.6cm to each of these pages. If I create a master of these dimension, content of the page is positioned at top left angle of content, leaving a white space on the right and bottom.


    Is possible to create master/apply to the pages leaving the content of the page centered, so I have same margins on 4 sides?

  3. thank @Ron P. for your interest.


    Not much info to go on. I'm not able to replicate this, following your directions.


    What type of photo, jpg, RAW, PNG, TIFF?

    jpeg image, 1800x1600px

    What brush were you using? It can make a difference.

    basic brushes, 128 px.




    Grouped just the new layer with white spots, or grouped it with your background layer, then rasterized?

    made 55 "spots", grouped them 5, rasterized them in a new level without background in order to duplicate them as groups of 5 spots at same distance.

    Sorry I can't replicate it in videp...because when I try to move the second group, program crashes.

    Is a operation I've made thousand times in AF with previous version: use it to recreate/make more visible "spot light" on outdoor scenarios. Like this (the one I made with affinity uninstalling 1.10 and installing previous version) 




    The common, seemingly routine now, thing to check is if Hardware Acceleration/OpenCL Compute is enabled. This is found in the Affinity Preferences>Performance.

    Is the problem just with one photo, or any random photo?


    HA is on, as usual, in all affinity previous versions.

    made it on another pic, same issue.


    Where is the file stored/located while working on it? On a local drive, network, or cloud? Serif recommends that documents be on a local harddrive while working on them. Affinity does not load the entire file into RAM, this is to help with performance.

    local hard drive, SSD. Make this work 5+ times a week from 3 years from now.



    Are you using a tablet? IF so what one?

    desktop, win 10.

  4. In the 1.9 update when I make a group using several layer that was scaled before,  if one or more of them contains text the dimension of these becomes bigger than the set one.

    It is very frustrating, because all formatted text goes to mess. 

    Here's an example. See the text "sky e netflix" and the price on the right.

    Happens with photo and designer. SOmetimes the text becomes 5x bigger, sometimes smaller like in this case.


  5. I made a master page and I used it to create several pages.

    Then I realized I needed to add a page at the beginning, after page 2.

    Added a page...and all the layout messed up.

    The  text areas changed position, so the writings on it. 

    Here's an example.


    My master page. 



    ..and the pages made with it.



    ..then if I add a page after the second for example, with or without a master page style...


    all messes up.

    text areas moved, their contents refers as the images remained in the previous page, another image area over the right image of the page....



    I attach an extract of that file.

    What am I doing wrong?


  6. I always used to customize my workspace putting all toolbars and apalettes on my secondary screen (I use 2 screens to extend desktop), as I do in Auocad, hptoshop, illustrator, word and so on.

    Anll worked weel in Aphoto and Adesigner. Moving from different personas in photo didn't make any issue.

    with 1.7 and 1.7.1 update in affinity designer and affinity photo the palettes position changes randomly. If I give an height to any of the palettes, passing throug another persona in Aphoto or switching to Adesigner results in palettes that change their height according to height of the last prgram/persona used.

    EXAMPLE attached to better explain. You can see the Photo persona with levels, history and other toolbars as I want them to be.
    On the red arrow, for example, the boundary between history and level palette.
    Choosing Develop persona the palette (already set to be all visible) uses the same height of the history palette on Photo persona.

    If I stretch the palette to fit my desires, when I come back to photo persona the history palette overlaps the levels palette with the height set on the last height change on develop persona.

    Same happens if I switch to designer and vice versa instead on sitching between personas.

    Ok, I guess me not using Designer, I didn't pick up on the polygonal "mode" and boundary "mode", which I'm guessing is only in Designer. Other than those, OP does not specify what program is being used. IMHO, forum needs to have a requirement or template when submitting questions, where some simple info and necessary info is completed.

    sorry, my fault. I'm talking about affinity photo.
    I'm not talking about the polygon tool, BUT the polygonal mode on free hand tool. see pic.


  8. when I open affinity (photo or designer) I always have the brush in the same dimension, or the front color in red, for example. Or if I use image distortion in AP, I always have to select "remove grid".

    when working with multiple files, it is frustrating that the program doesn't remember the last used settings: usually the last used setting for a tool/palette/command may be the most used one in a working process.

    hope in an update of that functionality.
