  1. That's a decent workaraound, but is that the only way? Thanks!
  2. I would rather it not guess. I chose a specific ratio for a reason, to crop out an image with that ratio and orientation, not a guessed one.
  3. Mathematically, 4:5 is not the same as 5:4. I see your point, but it's not the same. The reason for creating a custom ratio is to reduce the number of repetitious steps one has to take. As I pointed out before, rotating doesn't just make something correct. You then have to fiddle with it to make it fit what you're doing. If the ratio was what I wanted in the first place, much less fiddling.
  4. I've been searching for this, but nothing is relevant. In Affinity Photo, I want to save a layer style when I use text, but I don't want to save the font. Seems like any style saved while using text saves the font with the style. That's not the desired outcome. I just want to save the effects...
  5. That's what I'm seeing as well. I'd like to be able to turn that feature off. The problem with it choosing 16:9 instead of 9:16, then rotating, depending on the image, means the crop grid is way outside the bounds of the image. Anyway. I appreciate your responses, and your patience.
  6. I see that. But that creates extra, unnecessary steps in a workflow. See my subsequent post also, the tool doesn't work correctly, in my opinion.
  7. Ok, so I created a custom ratio of 90:160, so as not to "duplicate" 16:9. I was able to save it. However, when I loaded a new image, the crop ratio came up as 160:90, without me choosing any presets. So I clicked on my 90:160 preset, and nothing changed. I had to click on a different preset (1:1) then click on my custom preset for it to be correct. Clearly something isn't working right. I just upgraded to 1.7.3.
  8. Callum, I can no longer save a crop preset as I used to. I previously had a saved preset at 9:16 ratio, but had to re-install Affinity. now when I try to save a 9:16 ratio preset, the "create preset" option under mode is greyed out. Saving defaults didn't make a difference. Very frustrating to have to change the values every time.
  9. I've seen a lot of posts about this for Designer, but I only have AP. And there doesn't seem to be a draw tool in AP. Just want to enter text on a curve. Can someone offer suggestions? Thanks!
  10. I'm sensing come cognitive dissonance. But seriously folks. Thanks for the suggestions. I should have mentioned that i' using Affinity Photo, don't have designer. So I don't have the Compound option on the Layer menu. I think to Cog and donut combo will work, though. Just need to figure out how to combine them so they share styles and such.
  11. Thanks for the reply. Any idea how one would do that?
