  1. You could be creating a tile floor in Affinity Photo from tiles cut and scaled from the same image into a new document, and you'll get a whole hodgepodge of sharp and blurry tiles. You'll never know what you get. It's just not a very good tool for precise work. I have to do a lot of this sort of thing, and it's just infuriating to use a tool that doesn't work at the standard I do. I'll overlook some of the minor bugs that still exist from three years ago (that I repeatedly report), but I've had to redo way too much stuff in Photoshop.
  2. "Open Recent" still not fixed after all these years. I mention this bug every time we get new updates. Fix old bugs first, then add your new features (and bugs). This is a problem in every version of Affinity software for Windows and every version of Windows.

  4. The "Show this panel on startup" check box does not prevent the panel from coming up every time Affinity Designer (or Photo) is launched. I've reported this before, but thought why not waste my time again? It's been a bug since the first version of the apps and every version of Windows. Suggestion: Fix bugs before adding new features and new bugs. I'm currently running 1.8.4 in Photo and Designer with the latest Windows 10 updates.

  6. You posted this in 2016 and there is still a bug four years later that makes this unusable in both Mac and Windows versions. Annoyingly the startup panel also still appears regardless of whether one unchecks it (also a bug that is seemingly not possible for the developers to fix years later on Mac or Windows). I've done everything imaginable (deleting preferences, reinstalling...).
  7. I had not added this to my previous list (because I thought I had probably not chosen the correct resizing algorithm). The down-scaling of images is absolute garbage in Affinity Photo. I spent three days redoing a bunch of images for a client when I realized how soft they were compared to my down-scaled Photoshop images. I'm still having to use an old version of Photoshop to do most of my work after two years of trying to make this software part of my workflow. That's it for me. You're too slow fixing your crappy software Serif. It's so frustrating to know I've wasted my time learning what I was told is professional software. At least buying it wasn't a big deal, but I do count that as a waste of money as well.
  8. 1. EVERYTHING must have a keyboard shortcut. 2. Tools need to remember what was used last (the crop for example MUST maintain your previously entered crop setting). 3. It's absolutely critical the pen tool has a precision cursor/cross-hair option (seriously?). 4. Windows must expand automatically to make resizing handles evident when pasting over-sized content into a file. 5. Gradient tools, work on them. 6. The ability to migrate changes to multiple RAW files (with or without a macros) 7. The ability to open 20+ RAW files at a time 8. The check box to keep the start pop-over window from appearing every time you open Photo (or any of your other apps) should actually work. There are a lot more on my list, but let's work on these first.
  9. It's not clicks that waste time, it's moving one's hand around. There should be a keyboard shortcut for everything. I write this in almost 2020 and we still have no pro alternative to PS.
  10. When I launch the newest version of Affinity Photo on my PC running Windows (latest updates), I get the annoying suggestion window in the middle of the screen. Regardless of whether I check the box in the bottom left corner to keep this from happening, it still appears every time on launch.
  11. A follow up to this. I'm going to be using Capture One for time-lapses.
  12. If they are indeed "huge" one would imagine it would not be such a "huge" secret what they actually did. I assume it's safe to say no macro/batch editing has been added to the Develop Module. Those doing time-lapses and the many other macro/batch operations required processing RAW files will have to hold on switching to Affinity. It must be difficult to implement, because it has been requested for years now.
  13. Hi Octavian, As far as I know this is not yet possible in Affinity. I'm answering the question two years later for the sake of people like me looking into if this is available yet. JFisher, Macros with Batch Processing does not work in the Develop Module. This was the most important macro/batch enhancement you could have made in your "huge" macro/batch improvements in 1.7. I'll check back in another two years.
