  1. Hello, Simple request - when we chose text tool, mouse shows if we're about to make text area or simple text input. The same behaviour should come with shapes, For now users often have to make sure what shape we're gonna make.
  2. Hello Affinity Team, Is there a way to preview the cursor/brush size while painting or brushing? I understand the iPad doesn't have hover support but at least while brushing, I hope to see the boundaries of the brush. Thank you so much!
  3. Whenever I use vector brush tool, the cursor disappears on toolbar and other panels. Even though I select other tools, the cursor doesn't come back. windows 10 Affinity Designer 1.6.0.71
  4. AP 1.5.2.69 .jpg, 2988 x 5312 px. Zoom right in (ctrl-mouse wheel). Cursor circle becomes a triple circle. Photo persona: happens after 3014% zoom. Liquify persona: happens after 132% zoom. Develop persona: happens after 258% zoom. I noticed this triple cursor appearing at odd times in 1.5.1 but couldn't pin down when it happened.
  5. I can not see the size of a brush in APhoto on my Surface Pro 4 running Windows 10 and cannot find any settings that affect the cursor appearance?
  6. Hello everyone! I've got some suggestions for improving the selection tools: 1: Could you add a shortcut to the tools that lets the user add to selection when holding shift? 2: Could you add a shortcut to the tools that lets the user subtract from the selection when holding alt? 3: Currently, when I select Mode -> Add, I can only add to selection if I am starting the loop outside of the current selection. It seems there is no way to start a loop inside the selection, because if I try to do so, I actually move the selection. This behaviour could be accessed with M (Rectangular Marquee Tool), though. Being able to start a loop inside the current selection is just easier sometimes. 4: Could you include the selection menu (from the menu bar) in the selection tools so that it is being displayed at cursor location when right clicking? 5: I guess this is a bug, but I am adding this here as it's about the same tool: Clicking L to select the Free Hand Selection Tool will not show a different cursor initially. The cursor will only be displayed after using the tool. Best wishes, Shu
  7. Hello to everyone, when I copy and paste a layer or a group, should move that object into position according to the cursor and not above the same object. Is interesting that when the copied object is not in frame, is pasted where the cursor is. I attached a video https://www.dropbox.com/s/xcaz29l8slbf9i3/2016-12-01%20at%2018-03-13.mp4?dl=0 Thanks
  8. Using the hand results in strange behaviors. Sometimes the whole workspace "jumps" to random places while clicking the hand cursor, and other times it works as the hand is intended (Simply moving the canvas) This results in half times using the hand twice, first one jumps to random places, and second to go where you intended to. This happens with both using the hand tool and using the space bar. You can watch the behavior on video in this url: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/2335577/cursor-jump.m4v Best regards Affinity Designer 1.5.1 iMac 27 macOS Sierra 10.12 24 gb ram
  9. Hello, I've been using Affinity for a while now, and have liked it quite a lot. Photo bends quite well to digital painting (sometimes even better than PS) but today I noticed a tiny problem. When I use Paint Brush with a brush that has texture (I've included a picture), the brush cursor shows all the little holes in the brush too, which makes it a bit hard to see what I'm painting. Is there a way to reduce the cursor's visibility somehow? For example turning it into a crosshair permanently (for now crosshair works only when the brush is really small) or showing only the outline of the brush, not it's insides too? I've looked through the Preferences and the forums, but I haven't found a solution yet. Thanks!
  10. Hi I just bought Affinity Photo. The application works well, but I have a problem with Photos extensions. I tried with JPG and RAW and the problem is the same : the extension opens and load the photo, and everything works until I touch cursors on the right. It makes all crash, even sometimes OS X Photos. Other buttons work, it's only with the cursors. It Happens with all Affinity Photo extensions having a cursor. Thank you in advance for your help. PS : Sorry for my english
  11. With a dark background color behind a text box sometimes it is almost impossible to find the cursor. Would it be possible to add an option for a lighter or darker color to the cursor to solve this? Thanks.
  12. A keyboard combination for a 1/10 stepping is missing. - Like alt + cursor key. Explanation: Currently: Selecting an object or a value field. Tapping the cursor keys increments or decrements the value or object position by 1 step. So you can adjust object attributes. Holding the shift key while tap the cursor keys increments or decrements the value or object position by 10 steps at once. So you can adjust object attributes in broad range. But which key do you have to hold, to do the opposite? To make the fine adjustments. The increment or decrement the first number behind the floating point. - So in other App you have to hold the alt key, to increment or decrement the values or object position by 1/10 steps. I'm missing that in Affinity Designer and Photo.
  13. I do a lot of design work for the middle eastern world. I have certain arabic fonts installed on my mac computer. However, the right to left input functionality does not work for the arabic font to make sense. It works in other mac applications such as Pages. This is a super important feature and I would really love for Affiinity Designer to support right-to-left scripts for writing in foreign languages such as Hebrew or Arabic input. This is where the cursor starts on the right side and the font lettering goes left. Please add this, it is super important for my niche! :rolleyes: B) Thanks.
  14. When working with text within some color boxes it is almost impossible to see exactly where the cursor is and thus difficult to reposition the text tool cursor. I realize that the cursor must be thin enough to position it correction within a text. Could this be solved by simply using the CMD or CNTL key to *view* the move tool cursor temporarily? When releasing the CMD or CNTL key, the cursor would return to the text cursor and one would continue the edit. To be clear, all I would like is simply a help to see where the text cursor is and then return to editing the text. Clicking anywhere while CMD or CNTL is pressed actually could change the text tool to the move tool. I hope that using CMD or CNTL would only *show* the move tool and not actually change to that tool. Otherwise, one would have to choose the text tool again to continue editing the text. Elsewhere I have suggested this as a way to bring up the move tool more easily when within a text. I have been told that this may appear in a coming beta. Thanks to all working on this.

  16. Hi All, I was just setting up Astropad for use with AF, but have somehow managed to change my brush cursor to a cross hair, which is instantly annoying! I think Photoshop used to have a keyboard shortcut, like tild key or something that would change the cursor for the brush? Is there a key for changing brush cursors, or a setting somewhere? Or have I imagined the whole thing and it's been a cross hair the whole time?? Thanks Wayne
  17. Consider to change the actual behaviour of pasting object in a way that when someone copies an object and hit paste it will paste the object under the cursor unlike now when the new object is mostly pasted over the copied one. First it helps on larger/large projects, basically anytime where you wanna simply copy and paste object from one place to the other, plus it helps in selection. I do not see any reason why the pasted object should lay over the original one.. nobody wants it there, the original one is there already.. plus there is a function for copying and object over the original one (something like "copy in place") anyway Super+J (Duplicate)
  18. Cursor lags for a fraction of a second after the pen is put down and then moved. Happens for every tool in both drawing and pixel personas. Most visible when using any of the freehand drawing tools. This creates a noticeable hiccup for every stroke, and makes short strokes with low pressure virtually impossible to make. Different pressure settings Different Wacom pens Lower view settings in AD preferences Closer and further zoom I've searched extensively on the forums and the web at large and found no more reports of this so I'm wondering if it's only happening in my particular set up, specially in El Capitan: OS X 10.11 (El Capitan Public Beta, latest release) Wacom Intuos Pro touch small (latest drivers) Affinity Designer 1.3.5 trial (from Serif's website, latest release) MacBook Pro (Retina, 15", Late 2013) 16GB RAM I really want to buy this program, it's amazing otherwise, but it's unusable with the cursor lag for me. Thank you.
  19. I remember long time ago, when people made use of enormous towers with 486 CPUs in it, our raster picture manipulation programs had features like "paste on layer..." or "paste image under cursor", so you can right away drop the picture you have pasted into your project where you want it. its not that important, just came to thought...
  20. I wish there is a better and more precise cursor in the next update. (At least a crosshair option available) As in the attached gif file. It's hard to see the center point of the cursor and also the size of the brush related to my stylus pressure (I'm using Wacom tablet).
  21. Sometimes what looks like a wine glass appears next to the Node tool. Could someone enlighten me over what it is for?
  22. Hey guys, I thought it would be really convenient to add Flip controls to objects' bounding boxes. Basically what I'm proposing is to change the cursor when it hovers over the top/bottom and left/right control handles while INSIDE the bounding box - in distinction from the shear cursor which appears when hovering OUTSIDE the top/bottom and left/right control handles of an object's bounding box. Additionally, adding a modifier for duplicating (alt or option keys come to mind) would make this a slick timesaver and UI improvement and shouldn't be too hard to code. Check out the attached image to see a mock-up. Cheers guys, the apps are rocking more with each release! Preview: AD master file: Flip cursor.zip
  23. Hello, Having issue with the Open File dialog. I was able to open the first file by navigating through the folders using the cursor keys on my keyboard. However, when opening a second file moments later, the cursor keys did nothing and I was only able to navigate with the mouse. That is all. I thank you. Good day!
  24. When drawing with textured vector brushes you are shown a black circle to indicate where the brush is on the canvas. However, shrink the brush down to a small size and this cursor becomes a white dot that gets easily lost against a white background, and so you can't see where you are drawing. Not sure if this issue is universal, as I am only using textured vector brushes at the moment, but seems to me maybe an option for a different cursor might be a simple way to address the problem. How about an option for an actual brush as the cursor? I tried to take a screenshot, but it wouldn't show the cursor. To see what I'm talking about just shrink the size of a textured vector brush and try to draw on a white background. Can't really be done. :(
  25. Hello, I have an issue with cursor visibility. I use a thin paint brush (2px) for sketching in pixel persona but its almost impossible to see the cursor which makes it really hard.. I would like some kind of cursor not dependent on the brush size and zoom, like a cross or something. Any suggestions on how to solve my issue? Edit: In draw persona, using the pencil tool, I have a nice pen cursor.
