  1. @Katiestephoto I am not staff, just a user, but on my MAC I am having absolutely no problem with refining selections in Affinity Photo 2. Granted, I am sticking to Big Sur at the moment, rather than the latest MAC OS, because it is so stable. It might help if you could explain what "glitching" means. Also there isn't a refine selection tool, but there are several selection tools: Selection Brush Tool, the Marquee Selection tools, the Flood Select Tool, and the Freehand Selection Tool. Could you narrow down which of these you are using, and possibly explain what the "glitch" is and at what point it occurs?
  2. @catlover since the palettes are now arranged alphabetically, a very simple way to make your Default palette always appear at the top of the list is to rename it: AAA Default. Sort of a clumsy solution, but it would work!🙂
  3. Welcome to the Forums @Patriq. I am just a user, but I am confused. Your topic title says V2 but your signature says you are using MAC OS 10.13.6. The two are not compatible. Have you upgraded your laptop but not your signature?
  4. @masterofninja i have a trusty, rusty “guillotine” known in years of yore as a paper cutter. Not sure it would enjoy trying to do the curve though. As for the suitable sized punch . . . . .
  5. Welcome to the Forums, @masterofninja! Guess we are all set for Christmas 2024! Thank you. I was a bit puzzled at first, but then figured that I'd better color a wee bit of the stroke on one tag just to see what I had there. (Helps with scissors!) Just to be on the safe side, I opened your file in Designer V.1 first. When I opened it very successfully in Designer V2 the lines were beautifully visible without adding any black.
  6. @srg I am completely stumped! I have tried and tried to replicate your issue, but can't. Is there any chance that when this happens you have brushed outside your fill layer onto your initial layer, and that it is a placed image layer and not an opened pixel layer? If so, then the Assistant Manager will provide the popup message that it has rasterised the image layer and you will get a new empty pixel layer. At least it does here on my MAC.
  7. Rats! I will have to regroup, after several appointments today, when I can get back to my desktop. Using my iPad right now. Hopefully another user will figure this out long before I can attempt it! I am so sorry.
  8. @srg That is very strange indeed! Is the Assistant icon on your Toolbar? I had to manually add it with my download of Designer2. Photo2 downloaded with the icon present.
  9. What a spectacular painting! Digital or manual, it is remarkable.
  10. @zeeloop Wonderful! I am such a happy user of the Affinity apps, and MACS too, and when I spotted your message just now, I really wanted to be sure that you are happily up and running! Isn't "interface" a pain? I used Migration Assistant to copy from my iMac to my Macbook Pro, and then had to delete a ton of stuff in order to save some storage space. Now I am keeping my Macbook Pro on V1 for the time being, until I have everything 2-ish sorted out. At that point, I will just do a fresh download of each of the V2's from the Affinity Store, and also wrestle with the settings. Happy New Year!
  11. Welcome to the Forums @Affinity_Pro You can definitely attach the crash reports to a post here. Also, may I suggest that with so many people posting since the arrival of V2, your post is far more likely to be seen if you will give the title of your topic a more descriptive name? I hope you will be able to resolve your issue quite soon, and am sorry that it has been "lost in the shuffle" with so many thousands of new postings in the last five weeks!
  12. @piter2039 Welcome to the Forums! Are you on Windows or Mac? If possible, could you provide a video to demonstrate this issue?
  13. @zeeloop Did you solve this? I have used Migration Assistant, but am sure that there are other wiser souls who might have another way to do this. I hope that bumping your posting may attract the attention of those who know more about delving into the depths of computers!
  14. @R C-R Just giving this a bump so that more recent Forum members will see it. Happy New Year!
  15. @Lloyd McFarlin Have you been able to resolve this issue? I see that it was posted in Desktop Questions. If you still have the issue, could you post in the Forum section, Customer Service, Accounts and Purchasing? I know they have been completely swamped, but someone should be able to help you there.
  16. @johndapps I just happened to find your post here. I hope you are enjoying AP 2.0.3 as much as I am. Happy New Year!
  17. @andren Oh my! This is one for the experts! There have been so many postings that your very interesting topic has somehow been missed. I am bumping it up hoping that some of the extremely talented people who use Photo every day will see it and offer some useful solutions. Beautiful images!!
  18. Welcome to the Forums @LZ777. I have just come across your post and have tested this out. I have made a short video to show what I have found. If you place text on top of a shape and then select both the text layer and the shape layer, and group, and then OPEN THE GROUP and click on the text and shape layers and then Convert to Curves, you will be able to easily work on the text. On the other hand, if you place the text, select both text and shape layers, and group, and then CLICK ON THE CLOSED GROUP and Convert to Curves, you will get an unworkable result. Was this your issue? Screen Recording 2023-01-12 at 13.42.06.mov
  19. @edigrafie I have just spotted your solution. It would be nice if you would edit your topic title by adding (Solved) so that it would be posted again in the Desktop section of the Forums. I am sure others would be very glad to know how you solved this issue and it seems to have been lost in the massive number of postings that have been made since the introduction of V2!. Best wishes for the New Year!
  20. @srg I have just found your post. Don't know whether you are using V1 or V2, but if you have your Assistant settings per the screenshots below ("Add new pixel layer and paint") you should get a popup notice each time you attempt to paint on your active layer. V2 on the left, V1 on the right. Click on the Assistant icon on your Context Toolbar, and be sure that your settings match those below. I hope this will help.
  21. @jimh12345 The Selection Brush Tool is sensitive to edges. The Flood Select Tool is the one that responds most to color. At least that is the way I work with them. I am sure that there are others on these forums with far more photographic experience than I have, who will be better able to advise you, when they see your post. There have been so many thousands of posts since V2 was introduced in early November that many have been missed. Hopefully this "bump" will invite new attention!
  22. I have no experience with Ventura, but do know that there was a significant change in responsiveness with my Big Sur Mac when I followed the suggestion made by James Ritson on the Affinity Staff. Open Apple System Preferences, Displays, and uncheck Automatically adjust brightness. If you have not resolved this issue already, could you try to see if this will make a difference? I hope this may help.
  23. @wolboe Are you still experiencing these crashes? If so, could you create a new post, with any new information, and submit it in the Forums Section, Report A Bug in Affinity Publisher V2, Publisher 2 Bugs found on Windows ? I am sure the team will want to know about this.
