    Why not to remember??

    Just noticed a year has gone by and all the tools in this program still reset every session. Is it on the roadmap? It takes about 3 or 4 clicks extra each time for simple tasks. Not a lot but adds up over a year. Tools should remember what people choose in their settings.
  2. Ok, here's what I want the blend to look like: Note the alpha mask is off As soon as I turn a pure white alpha mask on, the entire image changes and the blend is wrong. Just trying to understand how this should occur as an alpha should not effect RGB pixel blend like this?
  3. This is for Affinity Photo. If one is to use blend rages, I can adjust the sliders to get what I want. Why is it that when I add an Alpha mask (pure white) the entire image changes? This shouldn't happen if alpha mask is pure white no? There is no reason? You can't workaround it either by putting blend ranges into a group and masking the group. Is this a bug? Doesn't happen in Photoshop. Thanks.
  4. Hi, Is there are a way to do reliable sky replacement with Affinity Photo? The refine selection and brushes works quite well with very, very simple objects, simple skies, simple buildings with contrast - but doesn't really work when trees are involved. Even something with a blown out white sky, I can't get a reliable result with refine selection and the tools provided. Are there any tricks or luminosity type tricks people do to get good replacement with skies?

    How is spelling supposed to work? Usually in programs, it's underlined in red but nothing ever happens in Publisher?
  6. You can skip through the video but it shows that the marking menu changes based on the object, based on what mode the program is in. Even without any 3d experience its clear how useful this could be. I think that Affinity photo, with it's personas concept and modern workflow thinking, could achieve something like this. There's room for it.
  7. Hi, If anyone is familiar with the 3d program Maya, one of the huge advantages of this program is the contextual based marking menus. I think the concept of icons on a menu is somewhat an a much slower process and somewhat old school. When using Maya, it is very fluid being able to mouse gesture to achieve an operation. It's also very customizable to the point one can use Maya without any menus on screen due to how powerful the marking menu is. It's a dream using Maya due to not slowing down, looking for icons and or menus. One who has installed mouse based gestures for Chrome/Firefox would know just how useful this is for those programs. Point is. Since Affinity is aiming as a modern app, is it a good idea to think about contextual based gestures? Is it possible for the devs to consider? Currently, Affinity is still a bit clunky with looking for icons and menus at the top of the screen.
  8. Ahah! Thanks. Sorry, I didn't pick up on the concept of pixel layer vs image layer but it makes sense now. Thanks for the support everyone!
  9. I managed to reproduce. If you "paste inside" from the clipboard into a picture frame, it seems the grey x doesn't go away. I guess this is the crux of the issue. However if one saves the image onto the HDD, then imports it in normally, the grey x disappears.
  10. PhaseOne figured out how to import lrcats (with most settings), so it can be done.
  11. Hmm, this is perhaps a bug. I can definitely confirm that flood select does not work. I'm on Windows 10 here too. If a dev can PM me, I've recorded a step by step video. However if I link to the video, real name will appear so prefer to PM. As for the issue, the select operation appears in history but there are no marching ants (it's enabled to view), the correct layer is selected however it simply does not work. Selection brush works though!
  12. Is there anything wrong with my UI on why the flood select tool would fail to select the white space? Wish I could GIF this!
  13. Ah thanks @firstdefence - however I wasn't getting the checkered background! So when I deleted the surroundings, I was left with a white background. Such a simple mistake! Edit: argh, sorry. This is hard to figure out the minute differences. When pasting a clipboard image into a new document, it seems the flood select tool doesn't work. Selection brush works perfectly but clicking on white space with the selection brush doesn't do anything (new is selected for the mode).
  14. It seems that when inserting from scratch (as you mentioned, File > Place) works fine. However if you paste an image into the picture frame, one is stuck with the grey x/outline.
  15. Sorry about this one, tried looking it up to no avail. In Publisher, some picture frames have a light x over the images, which prints out. However some picture frames this light x is behind the image. Is there a way to get all the picture frame elements to have the light x behind the image? Thanks.
