    [AD] Isolation Mode

    I understand that the features are decided by the dev team. What I don't understand is why after so much time we still don't know if this has been at least considered, if it's totally out of question or any other "official" stand on this feature. For the past 3 years, you've been suggesting the same solution to anyone that asks about it, while that "solution" is really not an alternative at all. Sorry for the rant, I know you're not the one to blame, but it's a bit annoying that this has been ignored for such a long time.

    [AD] Isolation Mode

    Hey @MEB, it's been almost 3 years since I created this tread and unfortunately this feature hasn't been added yet, and apparently won't be anytime soon. Can I ask why a feature that has this many replies (and thread views) isn't considered as a common feature request? I don't see it on this list: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/10410-common-feature-requests-index/ Also, why isn't this feature considered for implementation if it's clearly lacking?
  3. I'm having the same issue. The adjustment layers are ignored on export. Any ideas?

    [AD] Isolation Mode

    Yeah, I also appreciate cleaner ways of working. But I think the "isolation mode" would just add to that. Any how, let's hope Affinity is listening and some day we might get it. :) Glad you liked ProCamera2D (All icons and art is made with AD)! ;)

    [AD] Isolation Mode

    Thanks for the video! The scenario is simple: The ability to select elements of a group that have other overlapping elements outside of that group. With the "isolation mode" in Illustrator you can achieve it in a few clicks. In AD, you have to manually lock the other groups/elements or manually pick the ones you want resulting in multiple clicks, depending on how many elements you have.

    Yes, that is correct.

    Thanks for your opinion. Although, I'm not sure how the features you listed compensate for the lack of an "isolation mode". On this video I posted above (https://dl.dropboxus...oup_example.mp4) how would you do to select the shapes from the group inside the drag area?

    I wish there was a way to bring more attention to this problem or at least some kind of indication this is being worked on or considered. I honestly don't know how people can work without it on semi-complex projects.

    Anything Menu (Like sublime text)

    "CMD + Shift + /" will do exactly what you're asking, like mentioned above.

    MEB, the problem is that when doing that, it will select all objects and not only the ones inside the group I'm currently at. See this video: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/883485/affinity_designer_group_example.mp4

    I haven't been doing any graphical work lately, but this feature is pretty essential to me. Not sure why there's not more people complaining about the same thing.

    Sort resolution slices per folder

    For anyone interested in the same thing (or similar) I ended up doing it as a shell script and it worked pretty great. You can always do an Automator Service so you can trigger it with a right-click on the folder. I'm sure there are easier/shorter ways to do it but this is working fine. :) #!/bin/bash # Creates folders to sort files exported by Affinity Designer mkdir -p images mkdir -p images/2x mkdir -p images/3x for file in ./*2x.png do if [ -f "$file" ] then newName=$(basename ${file/@2x}) mv $file images/2x/$newName fi done for file in ./*3x.png do if [ -f "$file" ] then newName=$(basename ${file/@3x}) mv $file images/3x/$newName fi done for file in ./*.png do if [ -f "$file" ] then mv $file images fi done

    Save as opening format

    +1 This is definitely one thing that makes a lot of sense. Having to export every time I open a PSD (instead of just saving it) is a pain.
