  1. What is the exact function of the "lower handle"? It definitely works to scale a selection as a group. Is that its main function? I don't find this feature super intuitive, but now that I've figured it out, I guess it works.
  2. 100% agree with the two above comments. I just want a fast way to edit a placed bitmap in Photo, not edit the entire document.
  3. Hey @dominik. Thanks for that tip! That works great with my laptop trackpad, or mouse. It may not be exactly what I need when I'm using my drawing tablet, but I've yet to test that.
  4. Thanks! I wondered if that was what was going on. It's only slightly annoying to have to remember to deselect text before going to place an image, but for folks who are using this to place text files into their doc, I'm sure it's useful. So, not a bug. Just not exactly in perfect harmony with my workflow.
  5. Oh, great question! Keyboard shortcut (cmd+)
  6. In any document with multiple artboards, using the "invert pixel selection" (cmd+shift+i) command seems to always select content on the leftmost artboard, not the currently-selected one. Moving artboards around can help me get the selection I want, but this is still pretty buggy. Expected behaviour is that a selection should only ever happen on the artboard you're working in.
  7. I'm using Affinity Designer 1.8.3 on OSX Catalina. Selecting a font size from the pre-populated font size dropdown in the text toolbar, I often find that the available size increments are either too small or too large. I want to be able to click and drag left or right on (or next to) the font size parameter field to increase/decrease the font size. You can currently do this with other parameters in the character panel, but not the size. A slider would be another option that would give me the control I want.
  8. I'm not sure if this is a desired behaviour, but it isn't for me. Any time I have a text object selected and choose the place command, all of the files in the place menu are greyed out and unselectable. I'm not sure whether there's a particular file format that you can place into a text object? For me the expected behaviour would be to ignore which objects I have selected (deselect them) and just allow me to place as usual.
  9. I'm using Affinity Designer 1.8.3 on Mac (Catalina). When I'm editing type I can zoom out while typing, but I can't zoom back in. I have to click out of typing mode to zoom back in.
  10. Agree that this feature never benefits me. It's not just a matter of 'getting used to it' either, it's bad UX. It *might* be useful if your workflow involves only two tools, but I think that's probably very uncommon. Most users change tools a lot and don't remember the last one they used. Plus your cursor doesn't always change in appearance when you change tools so you often have no quick or intuitive way of knowing which tool you're currently using. I vote to get rid of this entirely, but the option to disable it seems like an easy fix that would please everyone.
  11. When I'm using the polygonal lasso tool in pixel mode, sometimes I'll accidentally double tap (or something) and lose my selection progress (especially using a drawing tablet). If it were possible to use undo to go back to right after I placed my last selection point I would be very happy, and you would have one up on Photoshop. I know people like to use the pen tool for more reliable selections, but that adds a couple extra steps that I find cumbersome.
  12. Anyone having issues with using the hand tool when using a drawing monitor? I have a Huion GT-191, and whenever I tap the screen with the pen using the hand/pan tool (or the temporary/spacebar hand tool), everything jumps (seemingly to centre around the point where I've tapped). This doesn't happen when I use a trackpad/mouse. It's not a dealbreaker, but very annoying.
