  1. I have a question/problem about selecting a layer in the layers panel. Although the documentation says the selected layer should display as blue, the display changes to a different shade of grey. I've gone through the Preferences and tried to reset all the factory defaults, but to no avail. On the good side, the layer selection does work so it's really only a question and annoyance for me. Can anyone explain how to restore the blue color to the selected layer? BTW, I think Affinity Photo is a great piece of software and the team should be very proud of what they've produced. I'm running Affinity Photo 1.6.7 on MAC OS 10.13.4.
  2. It would be great, if layers could be searched and auto-selected. This would allow to add filters for multiple layers (with the same or partial same names) in one go. Currently his can be done, but all layers have to be selected manually. Chris

    Layer blend mode "Transfer" and .psd

    Hey everyone! I'm not sure if this is a bug or just a limitation of the .psd file type, but when using the layer blend mode "Transfer", opening exported .psd files from Affinity Designer (maybe Photo as well?) will not have the layer blend mode set to "Transfer", nor can I change any layer's mode to "Transfer". Is this layer blend mode specific to Affinity software? (I am using Designer 1.6.0.) If so, is there a way to approximate the effect of the "Transfer" layer mode? I am trying to export files for using in Procreate with the layers not being flattened. Best wishes, Shu
  6. Hey guys, I was thinking of a pretty useful feature that I'd personally use a lot When you lock a layer, you can't select it unless you click on it in the layers panel. That's a bit time consuming since you can't press Ctrl+K to find it. How about a shortcut to select layers that are locked, directly on stage? For example you have a rectangle on stage, and you press S+Mouse_Button_Left to select a layer that's locked? That would be pretty awesome. Cheers
  7. The object was created in one layer. I created another layer, drew some other objects. The first object though with stroke and fill just disappear, even in the outline view. The only way I can select it is to go to the layer to select but still it is not visible. I have to drag that particular layer on top so the object become visible. I have attached the clip if the explanation is uncleared. What is the problem? selection.mov
  8. While it is possible to see a rubylith overlay for quick masks, it is not possible when just editing a mask. This is useful because it can useful to know what areas of the image the mask is operatintg on and allows better control over the editing of masks
  9. I am unable to select the main object in the attached file by clicking on it in the canvas. The layer isn't locked. CPSA Book.afdesign
  10. One can set the blend mode on an adjustment layer to for example Darken, and this results in the original layer and the live adjustment of it being blend together with Darken. Same for live filter layers. However I would like to take a series of adjustments and live filters, do all of them in a sequence on a pixel layer and then take the resulting adjusted image and blend with the original using some blend mode like Darken. Or for example take a blur layer, an invert layer and then apply the composition of these two with Vivid light blending to the original. The only way I can achieve visually what I am looking for is to duplicate the pixel layer, put the adjustments & filters on it and set a blend mode on it. However the layer duplication step makes the result a static filter, which no longer reflects changes in the original pixel layer. I was expecting that putting just the live filter and the adjustment layer into a layer group and then setting blend mode on the layer group achieves this non-destructively, but layer groups doesn't seem to work like this. Look at the screenshots, my expectation is to see the same image in the two cases. Is there some way to achieve this non-destructively?
  11. The quality of image became worse after merging 2 layers. (attached video) Is that a weakness point of the Affinity Photo on MacOS ? or due to my mistake? merge_layer_blur.mov
  12. Could we please have a keypress to select the parent of the currently selected object? This would allow for fast navigation within the Layers tree and adds a fine grained version of the Select All command, progressively expanding the current selection from a single object, up through the current group, layer, artboard, and document. Thanks for your consideration.
  13. Hey guys, When exporting to psd, the layers, if they are not named in Affinity, get export with the name Layer, followed by a number (Layer1, Layer2, etc) It would be great if the default layer names would actually get export as well. For example, if I don't name a layer that's a Curve, it would get exported with the name Curve, not Layer1. Thank you
  14. Hallo, I want to add an outer glow to a text. Found a few resources saying that there is an outer and inner glow layer effect. However I cannot find these effects in the software. I searched in Layer - Live Filter Layers (german: "Neue Live-Filterebene") but could not find these filters. Where can I find these. Thanks in advance and regards - Ulrich

    Broken Layer Visibility

    1. Load a pixel selection in a multi-layered document. 2. Hit Q to enter quick mask mode. 3. Toggle layer visibility 4. See image not update
  16. Affinity Designer 1.6.1 Hello there. I think this one is kind of bug. Type Korean text. Wait awhile or switch to other application. Noticed frame text layers after then. I have no idea where is it from. Thanks for taking the time to read this. Best regards. Cyrus. TypeKorean_720.mov
  17. Is there any way that Select by luminosity of Layer can be recorded in a macro. E.g. Ctrl, Shift an left clicking the layer gives you a selection based on luminosity (the brightest pixels) However if you try to record this as a part of a macro you get a warning that states layer selections cannot be recorded as macro. Basically, we should be able to record every action we do in a macro as in Photoshop. Come on Serif this is a basic requirement. Cheers in anticipation
  18. Hi everyone! I am using Affinity Photo after a while and found that it is not possible to use layer masks. I know some topics said 'uninstall Affinity Photo' or 'press CMD + D' or 'use the real black and white color' and 'do not forget to set you opacity to 100 percent'. I also restart my Mac and Affinity Photo but it still won't work. Ik hope there is a possibility I forgot to try to make it work again. Do you have any answers that will solve this problem? Thanks in advance! Joran
  19. Using AP 1.6.1.93 on Win10. When a pixel layer is alt-clicked, the layer contents are displayed in isolation. If in this state the pixel layer is deleted by dragging it into the bin in the layers panel, the image shown is refreshed and the deleted layer is no longer shown. However if you alt-click a mask of a layer, show the mask in isolation, and then delete the parent layer of the mask, thereby the mask as well, it still remains to be showed in the image area. It should refresh in the same way instead to not show the no-longer-existing mask.
  20. EDIT: The issues have been updated Hello everyone! When importing .psd files from Procreate, the layer blend settings will not be imported into Affinity Photo. Is this to be expected? Is this a limitation of Procreate's .psd export? Is this an issue with Affinity Photo? I am not using anything fancy. Just some color and some light layers. Best wishes, Shu Software used: Affinity Photo 1.5.1, Affinity Designer 1.5.1, OSX 11.6 Procreate 3.2
  21. Hi Mates, Is there anyway to rename the layer/layers with a hotkey? Tried to search in hotkey config but I didn't find any renaming option in Layer keys. Thanks!
  22. In a large AD doc it appears that I have reached the limit of objects (ellipses) or Art Texts that can be edited under one top layer. I may be wrong, but I ran into the problem of not being able to select an object or a text to edit in such a "heavy" object laden layer. At first I thought it might be a memory problem so I closed AD and brought up the doc again, but the problem persisted. As soon as I moved this sub-layer from its position under a top layer (together with other sub-layers with their objects) and made this sub-layer a top layer itself, the objects in this top layer could be selected and edited. This makes me think that there might be a limit to objects under a top layer. If there is a limit, could you suggest the limit of objects under a top layer? Thanks.

    Selection Feature or Bug?

  25. I have an image where some parts need sharpening and some parts need denoising or smoothing. The obvious way to do this is to create a mask that divides the image into these two component parts. No problem, I create an edge mask as a new layer and refine it appropriately. I could now duplicate my original image and sharpen one version (using Nik Sharpener) and denoise the other using Nik DFine. The mask should now be able to ensure that what I see is partly sharpened and partly denoised. But I cannot see how I can place the mask I have created to perform this task. I Because sharpening and denoising are fairly subtle, I have been practicing on an an image and a desaturated version, and a layer comprising several vertical black-and-white stripes so that I should be able to see a fairly obvious mask effect. I have tried following various videos and on-line guides typically involving moving the stripy mask into a position on one of the layers, but what I see is always either the stripy mask or no effect at all. The image below shows what I see before trying to place the mask. Any advice gratefully received. John
