  1. There are a lot of good things about Affinity Photo but in some areas it falls behind Photoshop. With a new version on the way, I hope some of these things were fixed. Macro recording and playback really needs improvement and is too limited. 1) Document and canvas resize won't allow resizing by % 2) The Macro recording is quite poor compared to Photoshop scripts. Can't copy/paste image layer (Macro will paste the same image copied during recording). 3) Can't record a fill layer with a selected color. 4) Can't record moving an adjustment layer to be a child of another layer. 5) No ability to pause/continue macro playback. No ability to insert note instructions. 6) Can't record use of plugins with settings (Photoshop can). 7) Once a step is recorded in a macro, it can't be deleted, just unchecked. To shorten the macro, you must start over. 8) Selection visibility should be able to be turned off and on while still active.
  2. I thought I did that but I will be sure to check it the next time it happens. Thanks.
  3. The standard text tool sometimes will not show any text when using. I can draw the text box and a color is set but when typing there is no text and deleting the layer and trying again has the same result. I'm using a font (usually Segoe script) but have tried others when the problem occurs and none work. The text layer is on top and if I switch to the Artistic text tool it will work. I'm on a Windows 10 machine and Affinity Photo ver 1.6.5 which was an update.
