  1. What I'm thinking of is an alternative to the classic layers: a node editor, where each layer would now be a node, with a mask and before input, so that you can reuse layer groups. What I'm thinking of: Each node has inputs and outputs depending on the type (example blur: input=image, radius form=type, radius, output=image) Creating groups and naming them storing created groups as global templates (like macros, but as components that can be stored) adding custom inputs to groups with custom labels maybe sharing groups online? (like as a marketplace for quick templates) As an orientation for how it would work, I would like something like Blender 3Ds node editor. As for how it's integrated into the UI, either it's a separate editor that you need to toggle on/off on a per-project basis, or it's a layer (like a node layer or something) that then opens a UI
  2. I discovered that Color panel and drop down Color panel aren't really the same. There are features and functionality disparities. The most prominent is the Opacity slider. Please improve the the drop down Color panel and add an option to see/add numeral values to the opacity. When you adjust the opacity with drop down Color panel there is no way to know the opacity value. Which is terrible UX decision. The other thing is the drop down menu(1) for the opacity in the color panel. What is it for? Why it wasn't implement simply like a filed(2)? It seems very redundant when there is a slider to adjust the opacity and the option to add a precise number manually.
  3. I have a request to improve the functionality of the transform panel coordinate and size fields. 1. Ctrl + Enter, apply or dismiss aspect ratio option on the fly based on the current state of the Lock Aspect Ratio. This combination enables or disables aspect ratio when your enter your numbers. It saves you a lot of time by removing additional physical actions with your hands that are needed to turn on/off Lock Aspect Ratio icon. Ex. You write in W: 110 and press Ctrl + Enter. If Lock Aspect Ratio is On then operation ignores it and we get W:110px, H100px. If Lock Aspect Ratio is Off then operation works as if it's On and we get W:110px, H110px as a result. 2. Ctrl + Alt + Enter, make equal other field to the current. When you simply want to match the position or size of the shape on both coordinates or lengths. It saves you time from doing double work by typing and pressing twice the same information. Ex. Let's say you have W:110px, H:50px. All you need to do is just choose any field, type let's say W:100 and press Ctrl + Alt + Enter and other field will reset to the same number. P.S. It's also best if you make these modifier keys not hard coded but leave an option to assign different combinations from each modifier set. Different people might have different preferences to which modifier keys they'd like to use.
  4. Please support Japanese vertical writing. This is the function most needed by Japanese. Website with detailed explanation: https://w3c.github.io/jlreq/#vertical-writing-mode-and-horizontal-writing-mode Adobe uses this because it supports vertical writing in Japanese. This is the only reason why I and my workplace cannot adopt “Affinity”. If this problem is solved, “Affinity” may become the top share in the Japanese market. Can Japanese donate development costs to support vertical writing in Japanese? In Japan, Adobe dominates the market. That is not good. The Japanese market requires the emergence of competitors that compete with Adobe. I hope that Affinity plays an active role for Japan.
