  1. Hi, I would like to ask for the Brush settings shortcut, which is fairly standard on many apps like Photoshop or Substance Painter. If you hold CTRL and Right Mouse Button, you can change brush size moving the mouse horizontally and brush hardness moving the mouse vertically. I think Photo is lacking a fast brush adjustment shortcut and tapping [ ] is not a fluid workflow, it is very primitive and slow.
  2. Same thing. Start from the bottom going up. Apply a black mask on 2nd, 3rd and further images, use a white brush to reveal parts of the image that you like.
  3. If you absolutely need a distinct group layer label, color them yellow or something. You go through the trouble of naming everything, so tag them with color while you are at it. I would prefer to have a little stronger indentation when it comes to hierarchy, but it is literally polishing the 98% -> 99% in terms of quality while I work with Coreldraw in the office, which is Windows 98 user experience... I guess I would agree that (Group) at the end of the layer name is not effective, perhaps we could have an icon between the thumbnail and name, a small folder icon.

    Problem merging vector - AD 1.7.1

    Upload the file, but I think that you are having clock and counter clock directions within vectors as opposed to Affinity messing them up.

    Brush settings RMB + CTRL

    Ok, I can confirm that ALT + HOLD RMB (or release after holding LMB) + HOLD LMB works, but there is no reason to have it this way.

    Brush settings RMB + CTRL

    Reading that ALT + RMB is supposed to give the drag-control to the brush settings, but it doesn't work. Can someone confirm that it ever worked on Windows?
  7. Thank you, I will test this on Thursday.
  8. Hi, I am looking for a way to make A4 multi-page brochures and booklets. Printing is on spreads, basically A3 sheets, but the order of the pages has to be like in the image, so when they stack and bind it, they are sequential and correct on paper. I would like to know if there is a function to work with the regular page order in Publisher, but export the final print with the printing sequence automatically. If not, what is the next best workflow for keeping the document normal for work/previews, but exporting it with a specific sequence for print?

    Somewhat Strange Artboard Issue

    There is an option (tick box), in the tool's context menu: Lock Children. It will either transfer artboard transforms or not to the contents of the artboard.
  10. Hi, AD is giving me half of the size when exporting slices. I have changed the DPI mid-project, but the UI is reporting all the good sizes in the transform panel. However, slices need 2X export option to meet the same dimensions as in the design. I am attaching the file if someone wants to see for themselves. Never encountered an incorrect size export in 1.6, just some problems with the pixel rounding. Wishlist time: could I perhaps see the document's units instead of the pixels in the slice window? Also, is there a way to rearrange slices om the stack instead of having this halfbaked array? Honda Civic 93 Maketas_Gamybai.afdesign

    Export persona scale problems

    So if I worked in 72, 150 and 300 DPI, none of these hidden scale shenanigans would be active?
  12. A quick way to fix it is to select the first tool inside the export persona and adjust type the correct values in the transform panel. Only that tool will show you the final export size.
  13. Yay, I helped to find a problem! Now, for my reward, I demand the ability to use global colors without the color-picker always reverting to the tint. PLEASE, is there something I can do to get it? I am doing car wraps and this one quirk is killing the workflow
  14. I am not the only one who dislikes this, this is counter-efficient and the end result is making me want to go to another app for any work which requires color-iteration. LORD GIVE ME THE POWER TO LOCK THE COLOR WHEEL OR HSL AND SAVE ME FROM THIS SATANIC TINT.

  15. If I try to select a portion of the text, there are no visual markers which typically are inverted text/background colors. The selection still works, it is just not visible on the screen. Problems with all fonts, and even seems to work the same in the AP Beta. Quick snippet of it:

    No highlighting of the selected text

    AD 1.6 does not have the issue. I have refined conditions for this problem to occur: • Any font • Outside of the art-board • Close-up
  17. Yeah, the problem does not exist in the today's version of Beta. The snapping was also causing it in the previous Beta. Good Job!
  18. Hi, I have the same problem in both Photo and Designer betas. The CTRL and drag (which duplicates the item into a new position) is busted. It will spawn multiple copies of the same items, and it will not even go into the tool pipe (no history action, undo leaves them). I can confirm that this is not a keyboard/PC issue, it always works correctly in the 1.6 version. Here is a gif of how it works:
  19. Hi, I work with a lot of plans and layouts. Typically, the projects are 1:10 plans, so they are huge compared to typical web/print stuff. I would like an option to export the slices at smaller scale (50%, 25%, 10% etc.). I can only see the scale-up and pixel-art options. Please add morescale options, I imagine it is as simple as writing a few more presets with different values
  20. The builder does not accept smaller scale. It seems to be either a fixed pixel scale, or bigger. None of my inputs (1/4, 0.25, 0,25) were accepted
  21. Please link videos or documentation for it. I would love to learn.
  22. Hi, I am interested in using the new stoke/fill tool, but I can't seem to get good workflow or results with it. By any chance someone made a showcase video how to use this tool? I am also interested in the content, should someone have a few designs using multiple stroke/fill effects created in AD. I remember looking at this tool in Illustrator, and it was quite impressive for typograhy. Thanks
  23. Yes, that one. Any documentation/tutorials/showcase is welcomed.
  24. Have you looked at the prices of both apps? CorelDraw is more than 10x the price of AD, and the upgrades will cost you even more in the long run. CorelDraw is the master of none. It has the bitmap to vector conversion, but it isn't as good as Vector Magic.
