  1. I have Intuos Pro Medium - have attached button settings. It does behave well with these settings, zooming feels nice and natural, just a pain that it deselects. I have found that different apps prefer different scroll settings - some want you to set 'pan' where others want you to set 'middle mouse' etc.
  2. ....Have just realised that this is Wacom tablet specific!! Could be drivers, but I'm bang up to date with them, so I would still regard this as a 'bug' within Designer, rather than push the blame to Wacom ;]
  3. 1. Select any objects by clicking or dragging in the image 2. Zoom in and out 3. Selection remains after zooming 4. Deselected all objects 5. Select those same objects, but this time by clicking them in the Layer Panel 6. Zoom in and out 7. Selection is lost! :[ Obviously sometimes (many times) it is much more convenient (or necessary) to select objects via the Layer Panel, so having this selection lost while navigating the image is a bit of a pain. Cheers Wayne
  4. I still don't get it. At all. Alpha's in AP have been a complete mystery to me since day one. In PS you can edit alphas just like any other layer and it's as simple as it sounds. in AP there are all kinds of edit and visibility buttons that either appear to do nothing or do what you least expect them to, and menu options that I simply, try as I might, do not understand. At all. I've tonight resorted to simply saving a separate black and white image out and calling that my alpha. Does the job. Totally not what you want for a game engine, but I don't need that any more, I just need a black and white image, and don't really mind that it's not embedded as an alpha... ... although that would be very nice!
  5. Can't use HSL on colour palette right now because the colour box is overlaying the Saturation and Lightness panels. Screen shot attached... Cheers Wayne
  6. Thanks all. I'm editing on desktop now anyway, but will try AlianP's suggestion when I'm back on the pad - that's if he was even talking about the iPad version?! Cheers Wayne
  7. Can anyone tell me how to turn spell check off on AD on iPad, please? I am making a logo where the word is a non word, so it has annoying red spell check wiggles under it that are putting me right off! Thanks Wayne
  8. Hmm, still there. Thought it would been looked at by now? I just got bit again!
  9. Thanks Meb, yeah I was beginning to twig this as I was posting - kind of 'as designed' then!
  10. Hi, me again - This 'non pixel data' anomaly also applies to Marquee Selections and Duplication! 1. Make a new file 2. Drag or Place a new image layer into the file 3. Press M for Marquee Selection and make a selection 4. Cmd + J to Duplicate the selection to a new layer... 5. Oh no, whole layer is duplicated? Selection is ignored! 6. Paint a blob of Magic Affinity Pixels onto layer 7. Cmd + J again 8. Selection is recognised! Selected portion is duplicate to new layer! Thanks Wayne
  11. Affinity Photo Mac 1.6.6 1. Make a new file 2. From Finder (or similar) drag an image into the new file. 3. Press W for Flood Selection tool and try to select a portion of the new layer 4. Unresponsive? Nothing Select? 5. Press B for Brush and draw a quick blob of pixel paint onto the image 6. Press W, back to Flood Section and again try to select anything 7. You can now select! So the FS tool is completely unresponsive to a new layer that has been dragged in from elsewhere until the layer has some pixel data forced upon it? Have just tested the same with Place rather than dragging, and the bug is still present. Thanks Wayne
  12. This may be convoluted to explain, but please bear with me, it's quite interesting! I would like to suggest a change, or an improvement, to the behaviour of number dials (fields?). More often I would like this tweak to be implemented in the Character and Paragraph panels. They are the main panels where you have a tonne of numbers in little boxes! So, this... A Wacom pen's second button is usually set to Middle Mouse, which makes it great for panning, zooming etc, and should make it great for dialing numbers in to little boxes - but with Affinity, it currently doesn't. You can easily hold the middle button and scroll numbers, which is great, but only within the number's little box - as soon as your cursor goes beyond the box's bounds, it cuts out, or sometimes worse, will begin dialing the numbers in the box above or below the one you wanted to change, which is horribly frustrating. The thing is, that while you are trying to change the number with your middle button, you are still holding that button down - I would expect the numbers to keep changing always while I have the middle button held down, regardless of where the actual cursor is - once you have initiated the number change, but middle clicking on the number in its little box, the mouse cursor should be pretty much ignored as long as you have the button held down. I am aware that the current set up works absolutely fine on a normal mouse, as you just leave the cursor inside the number field and scroll leisurely away on your mouse wheel, but please try this with a Wacom pen (other styluses are available) and try to understand where I'm coming from? Honestly, this small change will make the products a whole lot more comfortable for graphics tablet users. Thanks for listening! Wayne
  13. Hi, My keyboard shortcuts are not being saved - they are lost and back to default every time I restart AP, so I need to reload them every time. Is there anything that I can try to solve this? Thanks Wayne
