  1. Presets seem not to work as intended, at least not in the "Develop" persona where I tested them. I created presets for all kinds of RAW development settings. When I now open a new RAW file, AP shows these (last used) presets as active, but they are not. The sliders/settings are at default positions. Switch the preset to "Standard" and nothing happens. Switch back to the preset and only then the settings are applied. Attached screenshot shows an example: I enabled "Improve details", set the values to 20% each and saved the preset. On the next image I can see the preset, but the option is actually disabled, so this state is inconsistent. This irritates, it defeats the purpose of having "quick" presets and makes RAW development with AP slower than intended. Affinity Photo 2.0.0, Windows.
  2. when the size of the tool is changed with alt / cmd / drag than after the first but sometimes after the second or third use the tool is displayed as arrow instead of the round outside border or content, hitting the space bar brings the correct form back. who the size is changed via the menu everything works fine. ventura on m1 ultra PSA.: just discovered the bug is also related to the tool size, bellow 100px it works !
  3. Watch this movie. I am actually typing in 500. Doesn't happen every time but enough that I could get a screen recording. Untitled.mov
  4. Hi all, Using Photo 2 on Mac, I noticed some odd behavior last night. I have found a handful of photos that when I load into Photo 2, the back ground will switch to light gray, and the photo will be very washed out, when I move the mouse over it. When the mouse moves out of the window, it changes back to normal. So far all of the photos I've found that do this are from my iPhone 13 Pro (but I can't say for sure it doesn't happen with photos from other cameras) but it also doesn't happen with all photos from my iPhone. I have plenty that behave normally. I've included a video demonstrating this behavior below. Anyone know what's going on? Thanks, John 9EBDCE69-9696-48CA-8C90-F0727FFB7900.mov
  5. I am using the Affinity Publisher 2.0.4 on a MacBook pro OS 12.6.3. When I export a doc to a PDF, then try to copy text from the PDF it looks like this: "These are fun exercises to prac�ce spo�ng strengths. Please use the strength spo�ng sheet on the last page for this ac�vity and provide a copy for everyone who is par�cipa�ng." The problem exists in the previous version of Affinity as well. Please fix. Thanks.
  6. Hello. I tried to search for an answer to no avail. My issue has been happening at least since v2.0 (it's been happening long enough that I don't recall, and I keep hoping that the minor updates would fix it --alas, it still is happening and it's driving me bananas). MacOS13.1, M1 Photo 2.0.4 This happens to a number of tools, but definitely with the selection brush. Now, sometimes the indicator will match the brush's size, but only after selecting the brush, then selecting some portion of the image (with incorrect indicator), then changing the size of the indicator, etc. Actually, it seems pretty erratic. I'm pretty sure that the brush indicator used to match the size of the brush. Now it's not. Lastly, when the brush is selected, but I am not actually selecting anything yet, the brush indicator is the system arrow cursor rather than the brush size indicator (dotted circle outline), so it's difficult to see where to start selecting. This is very evident in the below video. Any assistance would be helpful. Would it be a setting? Is it a bug? Thank you. Pictures worth a million words: A - this is the expected functionality. The round brush indicator is the size of the brush. B - I changed the brush size to a larger diameter, but the indicator is the same size as before, but it's much smaller than the actual brush size, which makes it difficult to accurately select the edges. Yellow indicates the width of the brush tool indicator. Green indicates the actual width of the brush as selected via the context-aware tool bar. C - Now I decreased the brush size, and the indicator is the same size, but the brush selection is much smaller. Again, yellow indicates the width of the indicator, and green indicates the actual width of the brush. And if the photos don't help, here's a 20sec video. Yes, this screenshot video is me working in Publisher 2.0.4 with the Photo selected. It also happens when working directly in Photo 2. 2023-02-02_07-25-50.mp4
  7. The "affine transformation" filter does not distort a small object on a layer as expected. The entire layer and not the object is transformed. It is expected that only within the object is transformed and a rotation around the center takes place
  8. Copy an image from somewhere else, for example the Windows Snip Tool or another art program--anything that will leave a bitmap on the clipboard. Start Affinity Photo and then from the main menu choose File > New from Clipboard. In the new document that appears, use a selection tool to select a small part of the image. Choose Edit > Copy. Choose Edit > Paste. A new layer will appear, and its thumbnail will be generated according to whatever you selected. In other words, everything appears to be normal. Make sure the pasted layer is selected and use the Move tool to move it. Surprise! The entire original image was copied and pasted, not just the part you selected! After copying a selection from such an image, if you again choose File > New from Clipboard, you will also get a new document containing the full image. In this circumstance, when I'm working with a document created New from Clipboard, the only way I've found to copy a small part is to choose Edit > Copy Flattened. I found this because I was never able to get good results with 1.0's Crop Tool, so I built a new workflow around selecting what I don't want, inverting the selection, copying, and then creating a new document from the clipboard. Finding the copy process all busted today was quite a nasty shock!
  9. hello, I'm using Affinity Photo 2. There is a problem with some fonts not working properly with accent/vowel position. The second use alway sticks to its first position. (I'm not sure how to explain it, I attach that video for you) *important* happened with some fonts but my majority of fonts won't work including Google Font (used in the video) "Noto Sans Thai". Could you look into it? Details: OS version: Windows 11 v22H2 Build 22621.963 Affinity: Affinity Photo 2 2.0.3 Date: December 21st, 2023 Font: Noto Sans Thai (not work), Prompt (worked), Kanit (not work) P.S. already config Typography script to Thai Edited: Upload video in MP4 file 2022-12-21 09-49-19.mp4
  10. The "New pattern layer from selection" command in a macro always inserts the pattern marked during recording and not the selected one from the current document. In the Marco, the command is also not differentiated from "New pattern layer". A paste from the current selection in the current document is expected.
  11. I am experiencing a crash immediately after trying to start the application. Splash screen goes away and process hangs. This is a fresh install of Affinity Designer 2 Event viewer is showing this exception from Designer.exe Application: Designer.exe Framework Version: v4.0.30319 Description: The process was terminated due to an unhandled exception.

  12. I found a bug in the opacity slider of a Live Lighting when pushed to 0%. The screen shows strange artifacts. It only happens at 0%, all other values are good. Win 10, AMD Ryzen 7 2700 Eight-Core Processor, 3200 Mhz, 8 Core(s), 16 Logical Processor(s), Nvidia GTX 1660
  13. Hey! I believe this might be a bug. I noticed if you go to file > document settings the file type is always "Print". I created a new web document using one of the presets and when I open this menu it shows it as "Print". If you change the file type and save, as soon as you open document settings again it still says "Print".
  14. Could not find anything on the matter. Fill overlaps line of a trapezoid when I use perspective warp “to much”. At a specific point it simple jumps over the line. Let me know if you need the original file for analysis.
  15. I have a couple of images that are masked. In publisher the mask is invisible, except if you zoom in and out (see attachment). If I print the page on a professional fine art RGB printer (EPSON), then the mask is printed as well. Do you have any clue what the reason for this could be and how I can avoid this?

  16. Hi there! I came across this picture frame presets bug recently and thought you might be able to help with it. I made a video capture which demonstrates the issue as I thought it would help illustrate the problem better than me just talking about it. https://www.icloud.com/iclouddrive/00cHQ2xz-PQRZMStoIxsNheVQ#PictureFrame_Presets_bug Thanks, Oli ;-)
  17. Just upgraded affinity photo to 2.0.3 and it seems like it's opening the file, but does not render it on the canvas, making the application unresponsive. Please fix asap.
  18. Hi, for some reason the Preview isn't showing. I narrowed it down to the issue: 1. first, you open a file 2. Save it ( with changes made ) Now at this point, the Preview won't show until you close the app ;-;
  19. Created a file on my laptop running Publisher V2, went to open on my iPad, within a second or so of opening the file, I get a resources missing dialogue box pop up, then just crashes and closes the app completely! This would obviously be a typical use case using the iPad and PC together. Can upload file if required.
  20. Here is my experience with the Global Colors problem. Created a Document Palette. ‘Upon adding a Global Color to the palette, I can’t add another one. Why not? I’m in my newly created palette… Wrong. Menu says I’m in my created palette. I’m actually in Recents. I need to switch to my created palette, that the menu says I’m already in, in order to add more Global Colors. ‘I’m going to go ahead and call this a bug. Who’s with me? RPReplay_Final1670441685.mp4
  21. Morning Subject line says it all really. The tool actually works - it just shows the move tool pointer after an initial use. Running Mac Studio and latest Ventura.
  22. I was working on 4000*3000 artboard with 300 DPI, at the begining i designing it was fine until i found this issue: Preview was blurry and slow response File took longer when i open and consume lot of ram and cpu (not gpu) when running it Export not working (stuck at "exporting" loading screen") still blurry when i try to copy one by one of the object to new file Notes: I use laptop: 16Gb Ram, Ryzen 7 4000 Series, GTX 1660 with max-q design (6GB) I also use to export on workstation PC: intel core i5 13600KF 5.1 ghz, rtx 3080ti 12Gb, 16 GB ddr5 ram and the result is same as the points above its fine when i create new other file i try to export in affinity photo and the result are blurry as seen in artboard preview i use some live filter from affinity photo *Blurry and object dont chang or move realtime *CPU and RAM usage (up to 10gb) *Result when i export in affinity photo
  23. Double clicking on the primary or secondary colors crashes, exiting to desktop (like it does when clicking on the Daub "bristle" brush category, reported in other thread). It happens in the two places you could do that, as shown in the screenshots. I have just installed a 3060, with nvidia studio drivers, before installing Affinity suite v2. Other apps are not crashing while doing this, though (it appears it is when it calls the color dialog box). Tested disabling OpenCL, but it also crashes. Affinity Photo 2.0.0. Attaching screenshots to clarify.
