  1. Affinity Photo 2 on Windows. There are a number of tools on the Tools toolbar that have sub-options (such as the eye dropper has the Color Picker and Style Picker) that are accessible from the little white arrow in the lower right corner of the tool's box. I seem to recall - though won't swear to it, and may [obviously] be wrong - that on Photo 1, after using a tool, clicking on the tool again - without selecting the white arrow - will return to the previously used / last used tool. But now it seems that when clicking on the tool the expansion menu always pops-up as if the white arrow was selected and I have to click a second time to select the desired tool from the popped-up choices. I know memorizing the keystrokes would help, but some of us don't use the software often enough to do that... I searched the Help and Forum, and didn't see this being mentioned. Did I miss a setting somewhere that allows the last tool to be easily selected? Or a shift-click option or something that allows this? Thanks.
  2. Hi, Could we get the copy command added to macros? E.G. copy would fill the clipboard and paste would read from the clipboard as opposed to storing the data in the macro ( which is the current behaviour). This has already been requested for affinity 1. Cheers.
  3. I have a photo with three layers. There is no way to tell which layers will be exported using the option under the hamburger menu, , regardless of which are currently visible. Sometimes it’s the background. Sometimes it’s the background plus one of the added layers. Sometimes it’s only the added layers. If I have one of the added layers turned off (not visible) it will not be exported, but turning another layer on (visible) won’t cause it to be exported. And the layer that works is different from one time to the next.
  4. Since downloading v2.0.4, I am finding disc access to be excruciatingly slow when opening or placing files (and perhaps other operations that I have yet to uncover). This happens with all three Affinity Apps. Finder displays files in the same locations almost instantly, even in a large icon view mode, but it can take 20-30 seconds for Affinity apps to even display filenames when opening or placing files. This happens in Column, List, or Icon view modes. This didn't happen in v2.0.3 on my MacBook Pro and only started with v2.0.4. I consider this a bug because it hampers usability. I'm on OS X Ventura 13.2, 2017 MBP with 15" monitor, and files are on an external 2TB HDD hooked up to my MBP Thunderbolt port. I have plenty of RAM, plenty of free HDD space, etc. Screenshots attached.
  5. Most of the other photo editing software I have identifies its use in the EXIF Software field when a change is made to a JPG image, however that doesn't appear to be the case for Affinity photo. Is there a reason for this?
  6. Hi Affinity Developers How can I connect Affinity Photo 2 with e.g. Bridge as external editor? This is a mega serious issue on Windows 10 Home. On a Mac no problem, I tried to help a friend being on Windows 10 Home. For normal users having no clue of %ProgramData% etc. it's literally impossible go find the Exe File. Even I had serious problem until I found it, but I could not connect it to any other softwere, there were always strange error messages. Even the solution provided in does not help. It just does not work. The local windows user is a Standard user and has no admin right. And this is good like so. %ProgramData% has some hardcore access restrictions and that is also good like so. Changing here anything may ugly mess up the Windows 10 system. The provided solutions also expect Windows system admin skills and admin rights of the user, please forget solutions like that. It is a total design flaw in Affinity Photo 2. Please change that immediately, thanks. Q: Is it really necessary to mess with customers like so? Why the heck is the exe not located on the same place like Affinity Photo 1 is? That's really bad. Best regards, Roland
  7. I had Affinity Photo, Designer and Publisher 1 set in Window 10 Pro Graphics Settings to use High Performance. Now I have the three V2 applications, the browse button in Windows 10 Pro's Graphic settings seems unable to find the new versions. Is it no longer possible to force high graphics performance with the new version, or is there a work around?
  8. I do a lot of photo updates (for a family website), then save it in two different sizes (one size for a hover-over pop-up, and one for a full-size view on click). On the Photo 1 Export Settings (Ctrl+Shift+Alt+S) dialog box, the initially selected field is the Width field (there were tabs across the top for "file type"). On the new Photo 2 Export Settings dialog box, the File type is the initially selected field, and one must tab twice to the Width field. Not a bid deal, just an adjustment. I know the world doesn't revolve around me, but it seems that dimensions might / would(?) be a more frequently changed field rather than File Type - I could obviously be mistaken. Unless this "first field selected" is a setting somewhere that I can't find... Thanks.
