  1. 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!
  2. Not a biggie, but a slight annoyance. My Freehand Selection Tool cursor icon keeps getting stuck on either the "View Tool" or "Move Tool" icons. Sometimes it starts with the usual Freehand Slection icon, but if I switch between tools the icon doesn't change back. I can still make selections as usual, but since the View Tool icon (hand) is quite bulky it can be quite tricky to make accurate selections as I can't see exactly which point the cursor is selecting from. Photo attached for reference.
  3. Dear Affinity team, I ran into an inconsistency when navigating text with cursor keys. Reproduce * Place cursor inside any text * Press OPTION + CURSOR LEFT/RIGHT * Native MacOS: jumps word by word left/right * Publisher: narrows down word/character space * Expectation would be to make use of muscle memory from MacOS and use the same keyboard shortcut within Publisher, eg use SHIFT + OPTION + CURSOR LEFT/RIGHT (or any other) * Same for CMD + CURSOR LEFT/RIGHT which under MacOS is used for line wise jump, in Publisher used for word wise jump. System * MacOS 10.14.6
  4. Mac 10.115.3, AFPUB 1.8.3 On the Mac, the user can set Notifications to pop up on the desktop. I've noticed that when this happens and you are using some tool while editing an AFPUB document, the cursor can change. For example, if I am editing text in a frame, you have a vertical bar as a cursor. When a notification pops up, the cursor instantly changes to an arrow. And it stays an arrow until you click somewhere else on the document (say, outside the bleed area). Happens reliably. It's a small nit to pick, but it is annoying and it can make for a confusing situation - you don't know
  5. I am using Affinity designer Mac and have done for years. I am no expert but know enough to get the things I need to done. When I use the move tool or shape tools they work as normal but all other tools freeze at the edge of the canvas and you can not see the cursor until it reaches the other side and reappears. I have reset everything, restarted my mac, reinstalled the software and nothing helps me. The software has become totally unusable. I have searched but not found anyone that has the same problem. I have not included a screenshot as it looks normal in a screenshot but it is not
  6. Hello, I was hoping to find out if anyone else is having issues with the cursor icon not updating in designer (sometimes Photo). I experience this as I draw with my tablet monitor. If I move the cursor using a mouse around the interface there is no issue. When I move around with the tablet, the cursor is fine when it leaves where the mouse left off until it reaches outside the canvas area. The cursor, once moved outside the canvas area (using the tablets stylus), will turn into the arrow to allow for menu item selection but once returned to the canvas area the cursor does not up
  7. Unfortunately the following bug was not fixed in version 1.7 (1.7.0.367): https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/38289-dual-monitor-with-different-scaling-tool-cursor-image-huge/ The same problem still exists with Affinity Photo 1.7 under Windows 10 1903 with Surface Book 2 (200%) and external monitor (100%). I'm really disappointed that this bug still hasn't been fixed after over 2 years. Please solve the problem, so Affinity Photo is not usable with dual monitors.
  8. Hi all, I think I should report this really annoying bug that is still present. See screenrecording (it's not about video compression) - to me it seems like canvas is divided to many parts and the part right below cursor renders in half resolution then redraw in retina but jumps back and forward from sharp to pixelated :( Present for a long time - whenever I search in forum for GUI bugs it seems to me like this wasn't reported or at least resolved yet. Sorry if I duplicate such report... Affinity Photo 1.7.3 on iMac 27-inch 2017, Radeon Pro 580 8 GB, macOS 10.15.1 No
  9. Dear Affinity Team, I love your applications and I’m immensely happy about having an InDesign alternative now as well. However, there’s one thing that somewhat annoyed me from the beginning: for the navigation through text you chose the Adobe shortcuts instead of the native macOS shortcuts. This is rather disturbing if you’re a keyboard person and constantly using Apple’s iWorks suite as well as different text editors. As I somewhat understand that you want to make the switch easy for Adobe users, why not add the “Text shortcuts” as listed on your help site to the keyboard shortcuts custo
  10. I’ve just tried to edit some text pasted in from LibreOffice Writer (paste as plain text), and when I type, the editor moves the text cursor to the end of the line. See my attached GIF where I try a few times in different ways and it seems to move the cursor when I press SPACE. Not a massive problem but unexpected.
  11. Good afternoon. I have been using Affinity Publisher with the 1.7.3 update with no issues. I left a file open last night but windows decided to reboot my computer thus shutting everything down. When I opened Publisher today it recovered my work alright but for some reason the document keeps moving to the left and I can't stop it. It only does it when the cursor is over the workspace and stops when I move the cursor off the workspace. I have saved the work and shut down Publisher and re-opened Publisher but it makes no difference. It also does it if I open a new document in Publi
  12. AFPUB 1.7.3, OS X 10.13.6. This is more of a visual nuisance than anything else, except when you need to be accurate when you "point and click". I've noted that there are a number of situations where the cursor should change based on its position, but it does not. Not clicking, just moving. For example, you might be using the Frame Text Tool so your cursor is a cross-hair with a "T" and if you move the cursor over to the "Tools" menu (left side, usually) the cursor might not change to a pointer. This seems to be fairly rare and random. Usually, if you click somewhere, the cursor will chan
  13. To my knowledge theres no way to see an actual brush cursor in AP other than a representation of the brush style. This is often very difficult to work with, especially when working on small details. This is for two reasons. 1) The brush tip cursor is a dynamically scaling thumbnail of the brush style. For those brushes with unusual shapes, this is problematic as a clear focal point doesn't exist. 2) The brush tip cursor color is matching the currently selected color. In theory this is helpful but often when using color values close in appearance it is virtually impossible to see the
  14. After changing the baseline the text selection becomes very difficult, as a human we place the cursor at the text we intend to select but Publisher selects some other part of the text. This makes selection very difficult. Kindly fix it. Affinity bug.mov
  15. Hey everyone, hope that you are well. I have a personal blog where I like to create pixel art. Still learning but yeah, I'm very comfortable with Affinity Designer for my normal vector work so I decided to give it a try for raster images. The thing is: the cursor is driving me nuts! Whenever I increase brush size (2px and up) the "preview" pixel that is going to be painted is displayed top left of the cursor. This video may help illustrate what I'm talking about https://screencast.com/t/k8yET7ijH Is this normal or the expected way for the tool to work? I'm using square bru
  16. HI - Am trying publisher for our village magazine. Is there any way of getting the pointer to revert back to the move/select tool after creating or editing a text box? At the moment it leaves it in text box mode so I try to select something else and it creates a box. It's annoying that I have to remember to select the move tool everytime. IN pageplus this wasn't an issue. Any help appreciated. Thanks
  17. 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)
  18. Hi, I have a problem with the brush cursor in Affinity on Mac: When I have brushes with some kind rotation function applied, like brush direction, the brush cursor does not respect this and stays the same all the time. Although I appreciate the refined brush cursor in some use cases, this is quite annoying, as this makes it hard to judge how the strokes will come out. Applications like Paintstorm do have a rotating brush cursor, and its very helpful. Either the brush cursor should rotate, or I need a neutral brush cursor like a crosshair. More options in the respect would be helpful.
  19. hi recently I have met several problems when I used the affinity designer . the first is, the cursor jumping out my my control, when I designed a document with about 10,000 words in affinity designer of Mac. the second is , when I want to share my design in the affinity design of iPad, the whole app closed itself. I have tried the two documents several times, and I'm sure that the problem always occurred , not just happened occasionally. and as my documents have something privately, especially one of them is diary . so please f
  20. Using Affinity Photo trial 1.6.4.104. Edit : In Windows 7, Wacom Intuos Pro 4, XL. The problem: Specially with custom brushes, the outline ends up covering the area you are painting, when using medium or big size brushes (common for many painters, illustrators, even comic colorists, and 2D/3D texturing artists). Even the basic brush, round brush shape and outline (a brush which indeed is enough for high quality digital painting, with proper settings by the user, and expertise), is very productive to be able to disable it at options (due to some motion blur effect, and just for an outli
  21. 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 ac
  22. My english isn't well but i have a upload file for that i hope you see what i mean EDIT: i find the soure from the problem, it is the rotation over view -> [turn/rotate] left/right - sorry i'm using the german version and don't know the english thanks Facebamm Affinity Designer 22.03.2018 11_54_59.mp4
  23. Hi, for a few days Im missing the input box, when I try to edit a selection size, or use a filter. All I got is this cursor, as shown in the attached picture, wich is bugging me. Any ideas how I can switch back to the normal input box? Thanks in advance
  24. When I add Chinese in a existing paragraph, the cursor will Jump too far on the right, not follow. bug.mov My friend's Affinity Designer has the same problem(the software we bought at the Mac app store) hope you'll fix the problem as soon as possible. Thank you for your work!
  25. I'm experiencing a very slow cursor / brush while using a tablet with brushes form the "Textured" category (brushes that have large size and many rough / sharp edges). Cursor / brush works fine with mouse. Video LE: Never mind, turning off "High precision input" makes it work normally.
