    Everything to do with User Interfaces, man-machine connections. RPG games. Music. Art. Amnesty International, human rights. Languages. Food and wine. Lace making and other fiber arts.
  1. I'd also like to see this supported. I tried to point AP to the .lrplugin that I have installed, but that didn't work. It also works from within Apple Photos, just not in AP, which is disappointing.
  2. I'd define the snap grid according to my needs. Then turn snapping on. Draw first horizontal line, alt-shift-drag to next grid line and then press cmd+j as often as needed. Repeat for the vertical lines. It's faster done than written down. Though I'd also like to see a grid tool somewhere down the line, I see more important things on the roadmap.
  3. To find your RAW images, do a right click on your Photo library file (usually located in ~/Pictures/), select "Show package contents". In there there's a "Masters" folder which contains the JPG and RAW files next to each other in the subfolders which are ordered by date.
  4. Yes please - I tried to set the touch ring on my Wacom to change brush size with no luck yet because of this oversight.
  5. Thank you, that's what I was looking for - but not on the other end of the context bar. This should rather be near the fill color selection - or the fill color field might be disabled or somehow greyed out while that checkmark is not set. I don't really get the sense of the checkmark, since I can set the fill to "none" regardless. So now this is an improvement request by a user blinded by a very crowded UI ;-)
  6. I think this topic came up already, but I couldn't find it, so sorry if this is already answered: If I use the pen tool ("P" in the Draw Persona), set its stroke color to "none" and the fill to any color, on the second click of the pen tool the fill color switches back to "none", so I get an invisible object. I tried all kinds of color selections (context menu above and color wheel on the right) - after closing a form and starting the next, on second click it's back to none. It shows the previously selected color in the context menu bar again after finishing a shape or curve, but doesn't use it. This is very counter-intuitive - I can e.g. draw multiple rectangles without loosing the selected fill color - for the predefined forms it works as expected. Maybe I missed a user setting for that? I think it behaved differently before 1.2.1.
  7. Since AFAIK emf doesn't support drawing of splines, Affinity wouldn't to themselves a favour with this - the exported files might look worse than the original. I think having SVG and PDF should be sufficient for all platforms.
  8. Why then do you press Esc too many times? Sounds like "If I fill my glass of wine too many times, I end up over the pan puking" and trying to blame someone else for it. But I also think that using ESC to exit full screen was a very bad decision of Apple, maybe we should all open support tickets to make them change it.
  9. This sounds like a handy feature indeed. I'd like to have it.
  10. I think this could end up very confusing. Why not simply cut your path with the node tool and Action:Break Curve before giving different attributes to each part? If you want to keep your fill, copy/paste the object before cutting it up. The app wouldn't know what exactly (between which nodes) to fill if your suggestion would be available. What would be nice, though: for now only one node can be broken at a time, it doesn't work on multiple nodes - I think it would make sense to be able to hit Cmd-a while the node tool is selected and then with the break action all selected nodes would be broken apart.
  11. Draw the three big triangles, convert to curves (if you used the triangle tool), copy all three and paste, then select Divide from Operations in the toolbar - voilà, there are your new triangles that you can color differently.
  12. No, unfortunatly not - that's one of the reasons for my idea to have it in AD itself.
  13. Then you're right - snapping to the middle of near objects is not in (yet?) as far as I know. But the alignment tools work fine in such a situation.
  14. As a good and affordable 3D app I'd recommend Cheetah3D. AD is not made for this and probably never will.
