  1. Thanks, Carl. I suspected as much but was hopeful. Any suggestions of software that does support that?
  2. Each week I have to crop 200 photos to 1:1 size. These are a mix of portrait and landscape. The focal point is not in the same position in each image. So, I need to be able to change the crop area for each photo. To open, crop, save for each photo is slow and tedious. I'd much rather use batch that has a macro that automatically opens each photo, opens the cropping dialog, waits for me to set the crop area, then saves the photo. Is this possible with Affinity Photo? (Is it possible in Photoshop?_ Thanks
  3. Thanks, MEB. Not sure about that. As my original post says, the problem is evident in exported vectors types - PDF, SVG, EPS. And I attached an SVG as proof. And I just exported to a PDF with the "Use precise clipping" enabled and it still has the issue in the PDF - just like the SVG above. See attached. However, in both cases, it's only evident on a circular object. As my original image says "Third example shows in export to vector formats SVG, EPS, PDF, but other two do not." And i tried doing 300dpi PDF too. It's quite reasonable for "Use precise clipping" to be in
  4. Thanks heaps, MEB. I would suggest tho that that then presents a UX problem. It should be easier to know the fix for this problem (maybe the option should also be in the View Mode menu), and the Export panels should include a toggle to turn on precise clipping.
  5. Thanks, Hangman. The Subtract is probably the way I should have done it! It's the way I have been doing things. I think I'd seen the Erase blend mode and was just looking for reason to use it, so overlooked that. Nice tip, Alfred. Thanks. P.S. Affinity dudes, despite the alternative ways Hangman has shown of achieving this, my original way still appears to demonstrate a bug.
  6. Thanks, Hangman. That is very good alternative, and probably how most people do it. Which is probably why this bug hasn't shown up before.
  7. When I set an object inside another as a mask and then set the inner object to Erase blend mode, the primary object shows a hairline outline. See attached example files and screenshot. I am on a Mac using Affinity Designer 1.7.1. This happens in any document. It does not show when exporting to bitmap formats and not in all cases exporting to vector formats (SVG, PDF, EPS) This is my first time using the Erase blend mode, so do not know if the bug previously existed. Thanks Erase bug.afdesign Erase bug.svg
