  1. I was never happy how AP handled aspect ratios, but cropping seemed have gotten worse in 1.7. My last crop set the aspect ratio to 1:1. Somehow this ratio was remembered and applied to a panoramic image. Rather than fitting a square crop onto the image, the default crop extended several thousand pixels above and below the image. At least it got the width "right". :-) I think initial crops should be contained to the actual canvas rather than spilling all over the place.
  2. When resizing the canvas in AP while the brush tool is selected, the original pixel layer does not refresh automatically but needs to be "repainted" using the brush. This does not happen when a different tool (e.g., the view tool) is selected. In that case the pixel layer displays instantaneously. Also, AP still has trouble recognizing my surface pro pen. :-( Brush size is not displayed correctly. I have to move the mouse over the canvas to display brush size. Then the pen can take over.
  3. When stacking two images I try to manually blend them using masks. However, the brush hardness is always at 100% and the brush opacity settings are ignored as well, which makes manual blends very difficult, if not impossible.
  4. When the focus stack is complete I see a source panel and all the individual layers. However, once I do anything (zoom in, zoom out, select a brush, whatever) the sources panel turns empty. I can turn the entire panel on and off, but I never managed to get the actual source layers back. The panel has one merged layer but nothing else. How can I actually work on the individual layers of the focus stack? I tried a few more times, but the sources panel is still a source of aggravation: sometimes I see source layers, but they are now named "untitled" and some are missing. I don't recall having these issues when working through the focus merge tutorial in the workbook, but now, after banging my head around it for a few hours it's time to change over to a different piece of software.
  5. As a brand new user I have used the software for maybe a week now and found some "interesting" quirks: using the up- down- arrow keys changes exposure in increments of 1.0 - a huge increment using the same keys on white balance changes the WB by 1 degree - a tiny increment a horizon levelling tool would be really nice showing the brush size before the pen commits to the screen would be nice and non-destrctive developing (supposed to happen soon) would be a major, major improvement. And while you're at it: saving the developing information in a tiny sidecar file would certainly be the way to go. There are other issues, but I am still working my way through the tutorial videos. Here I would find written tutorials more helpful as one can follow them step by step. At this point I am intrigued, though Affinity won't replace ACR quite yet.
