  1. I just upgraded from an iPad Pro 12.9 V1 to the new iPad Pro 12.9 V2. Having watched the WWDC keynote, I was excited to see the Affinity Photo demo and immediately went to the App Store and bought it. I'm running Affinity Photo V1.6.2. Going through the tutorials (on Vimeo) on inpainting and using one of my own photos (I tried a JPG and a TIFF), the app crashed three times. In each case, my history basically was blown away. Is there a setting to allow saving more frequently? I've had to start from scratch each time after the crash. Not encouraging! However, I am encouraged and blown away by the capabilities and thoughtfulness of the app. Clearly, the developers have put a lot of care into both the feature set and usability. But, I'm concerned about reliability thus far, and I've just started using it. Without reliability, I'm not sure how I can use it professionally, which is what I want to do. Has the app always been unstable? If the app crashes, is the history commonly blown away? Is there a setting that reliably assures my most recent edits, up to the crash, have been saved? What's the optimum UNDO limit on the new iPad Pro with 4GB of RAM? What's the optimum AUTOSAVE interval? I just set it to 30. Is that 30 seconds? 30 edits? Thanks! /P
  2. Hey, One feature that always bugs me is the fact in the history of a document, selecting or deselecting an object is included. I find it irritating that there isn't at the very least an option to not include this in the history as it is something so minimal that can lead to you losing a huge chunk of your history should you want to temporarily go back and accidentally (de)select an object as that loses any progress you made in that time. I understand sometimes it can be helpful, but most of the time I find it to be a nuisance. Any feedback is greatly appreciated, Harry
  3. Hey guys! Thank's for your app, it's great! Makes some of my routine tasks much faster =) In my work I really get used to check the pic with before/after. In PS it's very easy to do with picking the history state you need and then just jumping back and forth with just one button combination cmd+z. What I'm saying is that I can jump in PS between the state I need in the middle of history and the last state in history using cmd+z only. Unfortunately that doesn't work in AP. I have to use slider or manually scroll through the history. Which is not convenient at all when I need to check if I'm not over dodging/burning... Please, add this option in future releases! Thousands of retouchers would be happy! Oh, and also is there a way to use Frequency Separation with 3 level separation? Adding extra frequency in between will increase precision and accuracy of retouch, especially with high-end portraits.
  4. I've been experimenting with AP and AD, and have now found out how to do blur of selected parts of images using both - thank you forum members! One of my files - now effectively a test file - has a slight corruption - though mostly I can simply mark the layers with the problem as non visible. I'd quite like to find out what went wrong, and maybe then delete any unwanted layers, or redo the steps "correctly". Is there a history trace which can be used to identify where the unwanted edit took place, and which can be used to go over the process again? Either in Designer, or Photo - perhaps even both!
  5. Hey there, I always forget to check the "Save History File with Document" after creating a new one. I understand, that not everybody wants to save the history by default, because it would make a lot of files a lot larger (I guess so?). But for others it would be nice to have a Checkbox in the (User-)Settings to get the history saved with the document by default when saving a document. Perhaps it would even be possible, to have a "per document"-exception-setting. Greetings, Johannes
  6. The history panel collects every step, which is great. However it can make it difficult to see where I added specific adjustments, etc. It would be brilliant if these could be made to stand out somehow, for example with different colours for different types of step. It's a bit like modern code editors - colouring functions, etc. makes them easier to find later. A variant on this could perhaps be done with outlining (maybe even mapping to level panel). Cheers! Dave
  7. Affinity has this very handy split screen preview that is used for filter previews in Photo, Outline Mode in Designer and so on. It would be really cool if there was a way to also enable this for items from both the History and Snapshots panels to compare different states of the document side by side. This would of course be especially beneficial inside of Photo, but I can imagine it could also come in handy in Designer or Publisher.
  8. I would like you to imitate History from photoshop by adding an anchor where you want stay then you can go back and do whatever you like and you still have the option to go to the marked step. Something horrible happened to me today, I just went back in history like 5 hours of work, and then I did accidentally a change in the document and I couldn't go back to the current step, the document autosaved and I couldn't recover my work. I think you need to improve the way documents are autosaved. I like how Apple Motion 5 has a backup history.
  9. I keep the Affinity icon along with other applications in my Mac OSX dock. When I mouse over the icon, the file names of photos I've worked on are stacked above the icon. How can I clear this and/or make these file names not visible from my dock?
  10. Bonjour de France :), J'ai Affinity Designer version sur Windows 7 Pro Service Pack 1 (64 bits). Mon pc est un Lenovo W510 Intel Core I7 M620 2.67GHz avec 8Go de Ram (année 2008). J'essayais les outils et j'étais avec l'outil plume. Après plusieurs manipulations, quand j'ai voulu tout annuler d'un coup dans l'onglet Historique avec Position, AD a crashé : 1re image (AffinityDesigner_crash_07022017.JPG), vous pouvez voir le fichier log derrière le message d'erreur. Je l'ai relancé, retenté la manipulation puis il a crashé de nouveau avec un nouveau message, 2nd image (AffinityDesigner_crash2_07022017.JPG). J'ai eu une fenêtre de récupération qui a marché 2 fois mais la 3e fois, j'ai cela, 3e image (AffinityDesigner_crash3_07022017.JPG) : " Abandon - Au moins un fichier est actuellement ouvert. Veuillez attendre la fin du chargement avant de quitter l'application. " Quand je clique sur OK, rien ne se passe, aucune image n'apparait et quand j'essaye de fermer AD, j'ai de nouveau ce message (AffinityDesigner_crash3_07022017.JPG). Je vais devoir arrêter le processus dans le gestionnaire des taches. J'espère que quelqu'un trouvera une solution. Merci pour ce super logiciel. Ciao ;) David alias edspeedy. Hello from France :), First, sorry for the English, it's the Google translate (a bit corrected) :D . I have Affinity Designer version on Windows 7 Pro Service Pack 1 (64 bit). My PC is a Lenovo W510 Intel Core I7 M620 2.67GHz with 8GB of Ram (year 2008). I was trying the tools and I was with the pen tool. After several manipulations, when I wanted to undo all at once in the History tab with Position, AD crashed: 1st image (AffinityDesigner_crash_07022017.JPG), you can see the log file behind the error message. I restarted it, retried the manipulation and then it crashed again with a new message, 2nd image (AffinityDesigner_crash2_07022017.JPG). I had a recovery window that worked 2 times but the 3rd time, I have this, 3rd image (AffinityDesigner_crash3_07022017.JPG): " Abort - At least one file is currently open. Please wait until loading is completed before exiting the application. " When I click OK, nothing happens, no image appears and when I try to close AD, I have this message again (AffinityDesigner_crash3_07022017.JPG). I will have to stop the process in the task manager. I hope someone will find a solution. Thanks for this great software. Ciao ;) David aka edspeedy.
  11. I absolutely love the history feature in Designer! It goes beyond any other similar tool that I've used in the past. However, I think there is a feature that could be added that would make it even better. Problem: When traversing your history, it is very easy to accidentally perform an action, like deselecting an object, thereby erasing all the other "future" actions from the history panel. From what I can tell, this cannot be undone. Requested Feature: Whenever you make a change while traversing your history, branch the history so that you are able to return to the original branch/path.
  12. There needs to be a way to export the history of changes into a Macro for use against other pics. It would be a HUGE time-saver to be able to grab the history of all applied edits, save to a Macro, and then re-apply those same "final" changes as a batch job to other pics. Example - I have 20 pics that were all taken at the same time (similar lighting, etc), so they need the same basic treatment at least to begin with. After I'm satisfied with the edits I make to picture #1, I can save, and batch run the other 19. I get that I may be able to do some of this by just running a Macro at the beginning of my editing session, but that's clunky and also through testing doesn't quite allow me to do some things (such as set layer visibility as I work through changes, retain the "before" setting as in an Exposure change, etc).
  13. Hi I've bought the final version of affinity photo but It has several bugs when I come back to a far point in the history the app crashes (affinity photo has stopped working and closes) when I open help the app crashes again but sometimes when I've worked for a long time and I have several layers no more than 10 or 15 the app crashes or the pc slows down my pc is pretty good for me 8gb ram 1600 fx 8320 xfx radeon 7850 dd black edition 2gb asus m5a99x evo r2.0 1tb seagate barracuda 7200 rpm I've repaired the instalation 2 times but the crashes continue I've made a chkdsk /f to my disk I've made sfc /scannow to my windows 10 64 bits but it's in a normal state, and the crashes continue.... I've installed the last graphic drivers and the others, I don't know what else to do..... Please help it's very frustating working this way.....
  14. Hi, I started working with separated mode and I've noticed that when I alt tab of any other way of switching to another program bugs history in that when I return to Affinity Designer, after using another program, the history panel doesn't always show the correct history, it shows the history of a workfield that isn't currently used but on the background, cmd+z also influences the panel on the background and not the active panel on the forground.
  15. I think the ability to save the History of your work is a really amazing feature in Affinity Photo. As a newbie that was pretty excited about this feature, I have been turning it on for all of my work. However, after noticing some slow-downs and crashes, I have been trying to figure out how much of an impact history has on performance and file size. I'm curious how much space it takes up in a file. More importantly, I am curious what sort of impact saving history has on performance. I am running Affinity on a fairly old Macbook Pro, so any tweaks I can make to get things running more efficiently will help. So, I guess I am asking two things: 1: Does saving the history with your file have a big impact on performance while working? 2: How much does the history affect file size?
  16. Hi, I heavily used AD and worked on my files … and at one point I had to go back in history. When I picked the history slider to move it the whole way back to the documents initial point (in a rapidly way) AD just crashed. I couldn't even see 1 step back in history. Do you guys need that particular crash report? I mean, I have send it to Apple so it will find its way to you. But if you want to ... just let me know :) Sorry for the inconvenience, Stefan.
  17. Adobe Photoshop has a History Brush which can be used to paint back from History states. I used it to create digital pictures by painting onto a new blank layer with one of Photoshops art brushes e.g water colour with reduced opacity and gradually building uptake opacity. Please note I don't mean the ART History brush, just the history brush and choosing one of the brush range. Please see attached jpeg example. Unfortunately I cannot find a history brush, or any mention of it in tutorials or help. However while searching the forums I did find: Posted 12 October 2014 - 07:32 PM We will have an upgraded brush engine, new brush sets and a new colour mixing brush for Photo. The history brush in Photo I will also be very useful for digital painting. Is there a history brush I cannot find or has it not yet been introduced? Any advice gratefully received.
  18. I have been using Affinity Designer for about a month. I was trying to look back into history so I used the slider in the history tab. I clicked on one of the items in the list and I was HORRIFIED to find that ALL of my work between then and now disappeared. HOURS of work that I can't get back. I even saved it previously but then when I went back into history and clicked on an item, it auto-saved and I lost everything. Needless to say, I was furious. Why isn't it more intuitive how to work this? Can I get my work back?
  19. i accidentaly deleted history and layers and fx and styles from right side tool bar can someone tell me what to do ? hlp.afdesign
  20. Is it possible to disable deselect as a history step? If I perform 5 actions, then undo 3 and click off an object by mistake, it erases my redo history.
  21. Just had to dump an hours work as I was playing (yes without a save) and applied a style to an adjustment layer which I could not undo even by clearing the filters .... I think the application of styles should be included in the history area to enable a quick undo! - This of course might be a bug....
  22. H iFolks, Having a slight issue with Affinity Designer in that I was viewing the history menu (Bottom right of the UI) for one of my projects when Designer suddenly closed itself. I restarted and tried again, same thing happened. I tried the same thing around 4 times and each time AD closed itself down with an error report being generated each time. The issue seems to be when I try to select and of my edit history... interestingly I was also using CMD+Z to go back through some undo history when the same thing happened again. Very odd, this has only started happening since 1.4 update. Mark
  23. So in the menu there's Open Recent > Clear Menu, that works as intended. However, using the OSX "View all windows for the current app" (Control-Down Arrow) you get another history bar below the main window, how do I go about clearing that? Logically clearing history in one place should clear it everywhere.
  24. Hello--I inadvertently lost my right hand panel for layers, history, navigation, etc. Can you help please? Context Toolbar is checked and left panel is displayed. Thanks.
  25. I tried the history to go back to something but unfortunately can't return to the latest work I had done. How do I do this? I looked in the help but found nothing can't wait for better documentation.
