  1. Okay, thanks. Nice workaround. I've also observed that once you press Ctrl + Alt and LClick you kinda enter in the "resizing mode". I mean, you can release the buttons as soon as you click and hold the Left button, so you can adjust using only the mouse dragging. This also works in this case.
  2. Okay, you're right. Ctrl + Alt + Left-click works. Is there any reason for the cursor disappearing if I'm resizing the vector brush in Designer? This link takes me to the Designer 1.8.4 Release Notes, in which this change is not mentioned at all. But I checked the Photo Release Notes to read your quote. Also, do you know what's the difference between the new options of low precision, high precision and windows ink for tablet input? Thanks for your help, Walt.
  3. I've been avoiding updating from 1.8.3 to 1.8.4 for some time due to this issue. Recently I went straight to 1.8.5 [latest version] to see if it would be fixed, but it wasn't. It's probably not even considered a bug, but I'd like to understand if this was an intended change. What's happening: I've always been able to resize my brushes using Alt + LClick + RClick [and drag] until version 1.8.3. From 1.8.4 on, this command only activates the Color Picker, which is also activated by Alt + LClick, so it's just redundant. If I want to resize my brushes in 1.8.4+, the command is Ctrl + Alt + LClick + RClick, and the weirdest thing is that the brush/cursor simply disappears after releasing the drag in the desired size, which didn't happen before. I don't know if this command change was intended, but I see no reason to have 4 buttons for such a shortcut. Also, considering the fact that it disappears after release, looks like something's wrong. Any thoughts on this, please? P.S: I know there are other ways to resize a brush like [ ], so save yourself some time before suggesting this. Thanks!
  4. Hello! Until AD 1.7, we could do the following to adjust brush size: Alt + LClick + RClick & drag = real-time resizing. Now, it seems to work only in the following order: Alt + RClick + LClick & drag. Could you please revert it back to the first case? I can only set shortcuts to me Wacom Pen if it's the first (and older) way. By the way, it works properly (the first way) in Pixel Persona and in Affinity Photo 1.7+ Below, a video showcasing the problem I made using AD 2019-06-10_11-00-58.mp4 Thanks!
  5. That's a good workaround, Carl, but I don't feel like it's the same result. It works properly, but I've been doing this move without touching the pen nib on the tablet for years, and I still do it with every Affinity software but Affinity Designer 1.7+ (in Designer Persona). Also, the response was quite slow and laggy for me doing this method you recommended. Still, I hadn't think about this possible solution, so thanks! Still waiting for them to make it work as before.
  6. So, let me update you about it: I was testing the same shortcut with the mouse and it seems to work like this: The command to increase/decrease the brush size is: Alt + LClick + RClick & drag while on vector brush. The thing is, for it to work, you have to press Alt, then right click, then left click, then drag. If you left click before the right click, it'll simply paint, the way I showed before. When it comes to assigning a Wacom shortcut, I cannot change the order. It saves as LClick + RClick, so it behaves as if pressing LClick first. If you guys change to Pixel Persona, you'll see it works both ways. It might be a simple bug to fix, right? I don't know if anyone from support is actually reading this.
  7. It doesn't work for me. This assignment I've made works perfectly in old Designer versions, on Designer 1.7+ pixel persona and in Photo 1.7+. It's just not working on Designer 1.7+ Designer Persona. Yeah, [ and ] are old shortcuts, but I could never feel comfortable (or fast enough) using them, since Photoshop times. I just got used to adjusting it with the method I showed before. But thanks for your post anyway, Stuart!
  8. So, I used to do all of these when I was using PS, and it worked nicely. About Affinity, I still have some problems concerning Wacom and Designer 1.7+. For example, change brush size with a shortcut, like shown below. In both versions, I'm doing the same thing, which is holding Alt + Wacom button that I assigned to be both L/R click simultaneously: 2019-06-10_11-00-58.mp4
  9. Hello! So, these new versions look great and I'd love to start using them, but I have some weird problems going on since the first beta release. I use my wacom tablet all the time, and I'm used to scaling brushes holding Alt + Lclick & Rclick, which I do after assigning such a modifier to one of my wacom pen's button. It works perfectly in the stable 1.6 versions of Designer and Photo, also on Photo, the latest release. But whenever I use the same command on Designer, it doesn't work. It just paints, as if Lclicking and dragging. This is one problem. Also, all of a sudden, the software stops getting instant feedback from my brushes/pen. I click and drag, but it only updates when I release the click. Did anyone else encounter these bugs? I can upload stuff to showcase, if needed. Thanks
  10. Hmm, I see. Callum said he was moving this thread. Do I still need to make a new post in "Feature Requests"?
  11. Lately, I've been using export persona more often due to a project I've been developing. So, I thought it would be more useful than it ended up being. The slices help a lot, but I had to click hundreds of time to assign the same profile to a lot of slices, and I see no reason for an export persona not being optimized to make things faster. #1 - I couldn't duplicate any slice. Duplicating the slices created with the slice tool, allowing me to simply move it around to another part of the canvas, keeping the export settings, would be great. #2 - there's no way to batch rename or batch set a multiplier to the slices' size. I had lots of slices and had to: click, rename, click the arrow, click to type, type "5x", and, then, go to the next slice. The only batch process I could find was changing the format. #3 - why do the slice made from a vector with an adjustment layer inside ends up being giant? If I have a simple square and make a slice from it, it'll keep the proportions. If I have the same square inside a group, and, inside this group, there's an—let's say—recolor adjustment layer, my slice goes giant. By the way, I'm not here to complain. If I'm wrong in any claim above, please, correct and teach me how to do it properly. I just wanna keep the work flowing with less brute force.
  12. Now, a nice addition to this would be being able to open groups while navigating with the keyboard. Like up/down to navigate and left/right to open/close groups. I don't know if people use this kind of navigation, but I'm just used to it because of apps like Cinema 4D. It's really handy when you can access any layers and rename them without clicking around. Cinema 4D, actually, should be a reference for menu navigation.
