  1. Is there a way to add/combine pixel selections from different layers by combo-clicking the thumbnails?
  2. I have a human figure selected in the middle of my image. I go to the Free Hand Selection tool and am able to use it to subtract from my selection. However I'm not able to add on to the selection. If I click inside my slected human figure, dragging simply moves the selection (marching ants) rather than adding onto the selection. This happens in all selection modes: New, Add, Subtract, and Intersect. I've attached a video which illustrates what is happening. Is this a bug? Affinity selection.mov
  3. Please add some sort of functionality that allows adding, subtracting, intersecting objects marquees and masks in AD and AP through a right-click in the layers palette.
  4. Hello. I am using Affinity Photo. I have an image that has 2 objects in it. I want to cut these objects out of the image to remove the background. The Selection Brush Tool and Refine Selection option is not accurate enough to create and refine the selection boundary. I have created a closed curve around each of the objects in the image. Each curve is on a separate layer. Can I convert these curves to a selection so I can cut them out of the image? I have looked in the Help document and also viewed the videos on the Affinity website but cannot find any information regarding this type of task. Thanks in advance for your help. Cheers
  5. Selections - Is there a key shortcut to switch between "Add" and "Subtract" when working with selections? Is there a cheat sheet for all of the key shortcuts for both Designer and Photo?
  6. I purchased AD few days ago, but still cannot figure how to release all clipping masks in imported PDF and select all objects with same fill, stroke, weight, opacity etc. like in Illustrator. And is there any tool similar to Live Paint Bucket? Thanks!
  7. I made a screenshot, drag-opened it with affinity -designer. selected a portion/part of the image with the marquee tool, cut it (with CMD+X) pasted it (with CMD-V) removed the background layer (e.g. original screenshot/image). pasted an other selection of an image. on slice-export it displays, what could be the original background image. Vector shapes on top the image are omitted at export.
  8. Hi! Sorry about the question, but I only find a way in AD to select an element that is behind another: Go to layers. Then select in this panel the desired element. In FreeHand you can use Ctrl+Click to select an element that is behind another. In QuarkXPress you click with the mouse an with the keys Caps+Option+Command pressed. Then you go back and forth the pile of elements clicking the mouse. That way you can select the desired element. Thanks for your help and keep up the good work! I spend some money in October. And you are the guilty!!! ;) Saludos desde EspaƱa.
