    affinityfan reacted to Pšenda in New Document, template thumbnail highlighting   
    1) New Document dialog: A4 template thumbnail is highlighted, document name "A4" (OK), document size correct (OK).

     Enter new value to Page width - document name to "Custom" (OK), but A4 template still highlighted!, why? (KO). 

    Enter new value to Page height - document name still "Custom" (OK), A4 template still highlighted (KO).
    My custom Document width and height is now A3, why don't highlighted A3 template thumbnail? - please.

    This is detected correctly in the Spread setup, why not also in New Document.

    Please - deselect the wrong template thumbnail, and highlight the correct/matching template thumbnail.
     
    2) New Document dialog: A4 template thumbnail is highlighted.

    Look at other category, for example Photo,

    and back to Print category - why A4 template thumbnail isn't highligted?

    affinityfan reacted to walt.farrell in Choose Layer/Selection Colour   
    Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.
    For objects, you can right-click on the object in the Layers panel, and at the bottom of the context menu you can select a tag color. This will apply to the right end of the layer in the panel, where the visitility checkbox is. For a (Layer) layer, you can right-click and then either choose a tag (as above) or click Properties, and specify a different color that will apply a gradient along the bottom edge of the layer in the panel.

I've also reproduced the behaviour of Designer (and Photo) starting when installed, and think I know why that is the case! Thanks very much for your persistance and help with this!

    Playing with layers linking and this is a great feature with great potential!

    One question though - when i copy layers with lets say linked mask and paste that layers in another document - link is not preserved if "source" of link was not in copied layers.
    Is it possible to rebind linking with layers in TARGET document by name?

    Lets say
    - mask AAA is linked to pixel data of mask BBB in one document
    - In another document i also have mask BBB (with different content)
    - I copy AAA layer (only) from first document and paste to second - and all linking is lost
    - Is it possible to automatically relink AAA to BBB in target document on paste?
    Relink to layer with the same name as was source layer in first document

    Added Mitre Limit to Contour Tool I praised Serif for repairing the Contour Tool. It really works well in this beta. Although I still miss the option scale with object. Please add this button and it will be really fun. This option is also missing from the Corner Tool.

    Auto-update: Not available
     
    Hello,
    If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry.
    This beta is significantly different from the 1.8.x version available for purchase - we strongly recommend that you do not use this beta for real work as data could be lost and the files you save are not guaranteed to open in previous / future versions of Affinity Designer.
    Thanks again for your continued support!
    Many thanks!
    Matt

    affinityfan reacted to SamSteele in Layers acting badly   
    I used to use Illustrator, Photoshop and Designer a lot. Changed to Affinity suite some time ago. Have been working on logos over Christmas. One of my designs has over 90 layers. Another 30 layers. My experience in all 3 AF pgms with layers has been painfully bad regardless of the number of layers.
    When I move a layer up or down there is a 50-50 chance it will NOT end up where I put it. I am tempted to call it a bug. Yes, I am careful not to click on the icon unless I want it to be subsumed under that layer.  Ending up in the wrong place when moving a layer happens so many times in the course of a project, in all 3 AF apps, that I consider the feature to be almost unusable. Some software designer has decided to do my thinking for me with the design of this "feature". I almost NEVER want one layer to be automatically subsumed by (incorporated in, made subordinate to, stuck under, hidden within) another. I suggest you go back and make it simple again. KISS.
    Or, put in a switch so I can turn that time-wasting feature OFF. I'll group or merge layers when/if I want to.
    There are lots of good features in the Affinity suite to be sure but AFF's hide & seek layering is not one of them.

    I consend that the blue indicator line could be visible much clearer and the transparent "ghost-layer" (moving with the cursor while dragging) is rather obstuctive than helpful. And in subgroups the difference between the indicator line lenghts is really too small. That said, I think it's not a bad handling at all. It's just the visual feedback that's problematic.
    BTW, you can use the three icons in the top right corner to place a layer instead of dragging it. Needs some more clicks and keys (CTRL-C, select layer where the cut one is to be placed under/over/inside in layers palette, press appropriate button top right, CTRL-V) but works also.

    Or you have to be careful of your cursor position (to the left of, on, or to the right of the layer icon). Once you understand and make use of the cursor positioning, the need to "find" the blue bar becomes less critical.
    However, your feedback will be useful to Serif, I'm sure.

    Right, @chessboard.
    In pictures:
    full width, accomplished by moving such that the mouse is located to the left of the target layer icon when you drop the layer.
    partial width, accomplished by moving such that the mouse is located to the right of the target layer icon when you drop the layer.
    small vertical highlight, accomplished by moving such that the mouse is located on the target layer icon when you drop the layer.

    I suppose Walt is talking about the width of the blue highlight. Highlight with full width of the layers palette means, that the dragged layer is placed beneath the layer above the highlight. Highlight with cropped width means that the dragged layer is placed inside (as a child/sublayer) of the layer above the highlight. Vertical highlight right from a layers thumbnail means that the dragged layer becomes a layermask of this layer.

    Are you carefully watching the blue highlight as you move the layer in the Layers panel? Its position and size indicates what's going to happen when you drop the layer.

    Hi,
    When working with masks, it's handy to be able to invert the colours using simply the shortcut ctrl+i.
    It would be consistent with AP, even if the Pixel persona can't provide all the tools we have in AP. And switching to AP to invert a selection on a mask seems a little bit too much
