    [AD] Isolation Mode

    Hey MEB As mentioned many times in this thread over the years, this feature is essential. It's not a nice-to-have. Designer is basically unusable for some people without being able to work properly with groups. How many of those "million" feature requests make the software unusable for your paying customers? This should be the number one priority on your roadmap, and it's not even there.

    @Mountainking that's not really isolation mode but hiding other layers. At this point I have lost all faith in Designer. Even if this feature has been asked by many users, for years, it's not even in the roadmap. https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/842-affinity-designer-feature-roadmap/ Reading the roadmap thread it seems all progress in Designer is stalled. What a shame, it was a promising project.

    Is this ever going to be implemented?

    Yes, but the point of groups is precisely not having to deal with the layers pane which is a waste of time. Why spend a few seconds looking for a layer in a long list when you can just double click on the group that is right in front of you?

    Hey Affinity, could we get a real answer on the status of this?

    When is isolation mode going to be implemented? Selecting stuff on the layer panes is a waste of time.

    Working with layers is extremely tedious. Working with groups and isolation mode is 10x faster. You can edit a group in isolation mode with literally 1 double click. No need to use shortcuts, modifiers, or waste time in the layers panel. I'm still amazed isolation mode is not in the roadmap. I've been using vector software since Corel Draw 4 (back in the 90s) and isolation mode is by far one of the most useful features ever introduced in the vector workflow.
  10. That logic is flawed for a number of reasons. 1) There are competitors in the market like Sketch that have achieved great results in a short period of time with very small dev teams. How? By focusing on essential features and adding secondary features later on. 2) We've had vector design software for decades. Nobody is reinventing the wheel here. 3) The problem is not only the slow implementations of new features but mostly the lack of focus on the most industry standard critical features. Who cares about a knockout group (listed in the roadmap) or bitmap brushes when there isn't even an isolation mode, an usable eye dropper, or an HSB color model? It's ironic that a software called 'Designer' is focused on illustration tools that graphic and UI designers don't need. 4) For the last decade Adobe has been focused on adding gimmick features to their software and now on their mobile and cloud products. This may give the wrong impression they it has taken Adobe YEARS (as you put it) to come up with the most essential features but that's not the case.
  11. Indeed. I bought the software to support Serif... but quite frankly the apps sit unused. We don't even have a decent eye dropper tool, or other essential features. The roadmap is quite depressing to be honest considering at current development pace it will take years to go through that list which doesn't even include some of the most needed features.

    I agree with the others. This is as essential as being able to create a group. I simply can't use Designer without this.
  13. This is super handy. Copy an image from anywhere (website, other design software, Finder, etc) then create a new document and have the dimensions of this new document based on the image that resides in the clipboard. I use this all the time in Photoshop.
  14. Simple but very handy feature! :)
