    pixelschubsen reacted to DBerlin81 in Tablet Pen Problems on Publisher Desktop Win10   
    I also have issues with my Wacom Bamboo CTH-470. According to customer Service, lots of Affinity users have that tablet and it is supposed to work fine. 

    My issues are that a lot of the time, the freehand drawing doesn't work. All it does is create a straight line between the starting and end point of drawing. But sometimes it works for a short moment. This happens when I use stylus and tablet. Whenever I use the mouse, freehand always works fine parallel to the stylus + tablet not working in Affinity Designer. I have been using this tablet for years in the Adobe programs and never once had any issue with it. It works fine in all other software. The driver software, which got its final update in 2015 is updated.  This seems to be an issue mostly in Designer. While the freehand drawing malfunctions there, it works fine in Publisher.

    Another issue I have in Designer is with brushes changing to a completely different brush when I use the keyboard shortcut to change size. I can only adjust brush size in the brushes' advanced settings. So, from where I'm sitting, it looks like Affinity still has a few significant bugs that don't exist in other software. But, I do have to say that despite that it is absolutely a fantastic alternative to the outrageously priced Adobe equivalents. I do so wish they would add the function for vectorizing pixel images, though. I know about the vectorizing alternatives, but it's a drawback in terms of workflow.

    They have been converted to pages now, @pixelschubsen, and should all be available one at a time using the page navigator on the lower left of your screen, next to the status bar.
    Note that you could have left them as Artboards in Publisher; you did not need to convert them to Pages. And if you plan to move back and forth that may be a better choice for you in the future

    I'm having some troubles with the Define option under the wand tool... still having a photoshop --> photo learning curve.  Anyways, this is my first Affinity Photo manipulation.  Starting to get the hang of it.  If anyone is willing to walk me through some advanced methods for defining masks, please let me know.

    I'm coming from GIMP, which has this feature for free. I'm in a trial of Affinity and really liking it, but I produce images for web use, so I need to compress images as much as possible without losing too much visual quality. I have no concept of how anyone does that without a preview. Is this feature coming soon?

    Totally agree! For UI Design it is absolutely necessary to  have some pre-sets for Font-Antialiasing!

    MRP, don't hold your breath.  Even my amazingly persuasive "PRETTY PLEASE" trick hasn't budged Serif on this important feature. The implementation delay on this is terribly unfortunate.

    Some great updates have come out for the Affinity apps but mysteriously the excellent suggestions in this thread go unheeded.  So please allow me to try a new technique on Serif that's sure to get our request in the NEXT update...
    PRETTY PLEASE?  :wub:

    I'm working with text right now and could use this feature.
    The Blend Gamma option is useful but the above could help speed up things.
    Thank you.
