  1. Quite often after spending time tweaking a brush, I find that all the new settings are lost and it reverts back to the previous settings meaning I have to start over again (if I'm lucky and notice the settings being binned). To replicate the issue: 1) Either open a new document, or delete a layer to start drawing with a fresh canvas 2) Double click a brush to open the settings dialogue box 3) Draw on the canvas with the brush to see what the current brush it looking like <-- This step is important 4) Tweak the brush settings, drawing on the canvas again to compare it to the original brush stroke (until you get your desired settings) 5) Press the 'Close' button to close the dialogue box 6) Continue drawing with new settings. Although all appears fine at this point, none of the brush settings are actually saved. As soon as you open the settings dialogue again or change brushes, the settings are all lost and they revert back to the original settings In step 4, you can tell when it's going to lose all the settings because in it's failed state all the settings change instantaniously. Whereas ordinarily, when the settings dialogue box is working correctly, there's a very slight delay when changing the settings (like it's registering the changes).

  2. Hello everyone! Do you know if there is a way to record changes made to brushes? It would be nice to be able to just click on a macro to set, for example, 120px, 25% opaque, 100% flow, 50% hardness. Best wishes, Shu
  3. Hi, how can I change in APh the unit of measure from the ruler of pixels also generally to mm? If this is not possible at the moment, please register as a requirement. I e.g. Always use the unit mm. The settings of the units of the ruler should be storable. Thanks Dieter
  4. There is a discussion on PPI vs DPI in the Questions and Feedback section. After discussion and consideration, I'd like to make an official feature request. In the User Interface section of the Preferences in both Designer and Photo, I request that you include a checkbox to change the default DPI setting of documents to PPI. I understand a portion of your staff believe DPI is an appropriate choice, so it could be set to DPI by default, and every one who feels strongly that it should read PPI could have a customization option to change their user experience within the software. I feel that's a good compromise, considering everyone who understands what the field is for would understand that it would typically make no difference to anyone's workflow, and it would appease each party that has a preference to one acronym or the other. Thank you for your consideration, I appreciate your time.
  5. Hi Affinity team, (Sorry when using wrong terms in my post. I use German localization so I have the English terms not at hand.) Since 1.5 we have sticky settings which is basically quite useful but, in my opinion, not the perfect solution. I have certain problems with the current implementation: Some tools share the same setings, e.g., all retouching tools seem to use the same settings which is not always useful. Some tools have no sticky settings, in particular, the crop tool where I really miss it. For example, in the majority of cases I want to crop by preserving the original ratio, but the tool always resets to unrestricted. Also I want to always use shading of the outside of the crop area. (In fact this new feature is so useful that I just want to have it as standard instead of an option.) Different types of images and tasks require different settings. Filter and adjustment layers have no sticky settings at all, which would be quite userful. Altogether I would prefer to have customizable presets instead of sticky settings, ideally with the possibilty to store and load own settings to quickly switch them. I think of settings files that can be edited from the preferences dialog. Also nice would be a button or rightclick option by which I can simply store the current setting of a certain tool. Also for live filter I would like to have a possibility to store multiple presets (like there are already for adjustments). The new macro feature is a bit of replacement, but only a bit since I have to explicitly record macros. Maybe you could think about such an improvement. Thanks, Naqoy
  6. Hi, 1. The documentation says that if I choose an Associated Tool for a brush and later click on that brush in the Brushes panel, it should automatically switch to that associated tool. Sounds great, unfortunately it doesn't work for me. Later, choosing that brush just assigns this brush to my currently selected tool, it doesn't switch to the associated tool. And I don't see the icon of the associate tool on the right side of the brush, like I've seen them on some screenshots in the forum. I think, the documentation mentions them as well. 2. I don't think the other drop-down fields (Blend Mode and Wet Edges) in brush settings work either. The Context Toolbar doesn't reflect the changes I made in the brush settings, when I set a Blend Mode (but I see the changes on the canvas). If I switch to another tool and back to the previous tool, the context toolbar shows the correct Blend Mode again. I don't know, what the option "Don't set to ..." is supposed to do, but it changes absolutely nothing.
  7. Hello, every time I re-open a file, the (Painting-) Brush-Size resets to 64 px. Is ist somehow possible to keep the brush-size as it was when closing and re-opening a file? I checked in settings etc but couldnt find anything. Thanks for any help and thanks for this really great alternative to photoshop!!! Stefani
  8. Hi I find incompatibility issue between the profiles settings preferences and the new document. Setting preferences will not work for RGB. ​ I have set preferences to eciRGB. While in the new document (Type: Print) appears sRGB. ​Robert AD final. 1.5.0.36
  9. Hi Guys. I've a bit of a problem viewing the popup window in the effects section (this is the full version - not beta). I select outer shadow, then settings and can't see the full popup. I've attached two images for you. They images are both shots of my full screen and displayed on my secondary screen. The first image is where I shrunk Designer down a little to see if it made a difference. Edit: This happens on my primary screen as well. Just tried several other popups and the same thing happens. Document settings and outer shadow.
  10. Hello, I think it would be convenient if the nudge distance could be saved as a document setting, because I often set the size of a grid space as my nudge distance, which of course, differs between different documents. For the same reason, I believe it could be beneficial to make screen tolerance a document setting instead of an application-wide setting. What do you think? Best, Bauke
  11. It seems like Affinity is focusing a lot on features, which I guess is important for the competition, but it seems like as soon as something is done there's no polishing done. My absolute biggest problem right now is the export persona and how it doesn't save settings between exports, how has this been allowed to be broken for over a year? I'm currently trying to move over from Creative Cloud but things like this make it impossible.
  12. I would find it useful to be able to save pictures' raw development settings for future use, like DxO does. A preference setting allowing to choose from saving settings for all raw developments, none or asking for each picture would be a huge time saver.
  13. The print service has requested CMYK exported as "High Quality PDF". The design has 2 photos, lots of text (converted to curves) and a few vector elements. When I use the "PDF (for print)" export option, the resulting PDF has the strange result you see attached. When I use the "PDF/X-1a" option, the resulting PDF appears to be as expected. I'm going to send this version to the print service. I am, however, curious about what is causing this issue with the "PDF (for print)" option. Id it possible that this is a problem only with the display, and that it would still print correctly? At any rate I did not want to test that theory on 1000 CD sleeves. This is not an emergency unless the manufacturers says they have an issue with the PDF version I am sending. Thanks in advance.
  14. Hi, I frequently need to create fairly light coloured designs, and that is a royal pain* on a transparent or white background, especially if parts of what I do need transparency. At present I draw a page-size box, colour it and lock it in the background (to stop it from being selected), but this feels a kludge - did I miss something? Is there an alternative to "white" for a non-transparent background? Is there a way in which I can set an alternative colour for the drawing background? Even just changing the grey boxes in the white-and-grey boxes that represent a transparent background would be a help. The idea is thus to define an alternative for what remains transparent in export. Cheers, P * presidential pain for nations without royalty :)
  15. Hello there, I recently updated AD and bought AP, but on these new versions I've noticed that the Full Grid has disappear and only shows a grid on the document but not outside the canvas, is there anyway I can fix this?? I really liked this feature specially for Affinity Designer :(.
  16. I have noticed that when I create a shape: rectangle, triangle, etc., then click the fill in the upper left, select the color tab, and try to select a different color tool. The drop down displays behind the settings popover. I have noticed this in other settings popover in other areas. This is just the easiest to find. I have worked around this by using the inspector panels. But it would be quicker to use the settings panels. I have added a screen shot to better demonstrate what I am seeing. I am running a 2014 MacBook Pro, OS X 10.11 Thanks, Rob
  17. I suggest the implementation of "INERTIA" settings in both "Affinity DESIGNER"(especially) and "Affinity PHOTO";Alike you can change the behavior of tools in Artrage. so your curves etc. smooth out while you draw. Just like you would apply more pressure to the tool, which would normally have the effect in reality of not being able to move so fast. (Would be much easier to draw specific curves...(sry4myenglish)
  18. I mainly use my iMac due to it´s screen and power. But I´ve also got a MacBook which I use to take with me (that was surprising right? :D ) when I go to friends etc. So my brushes or color palettes and workplace settings, view options...every option is configured on my iMac. (at least the options I know about) But it´s nasty to do the same importing etc with both Apps on the MacBook. So I would like ti have simple export option for all stuff that is configured compared to the stock download. If there is a folder somewhere which I could copy I would be totally fine with that as well. This would be also useful if one has a bug and want´s to check whether it´s because of some settings of his own. Then he could export all the settings, reset the App to default and if the bug persists the resources could be imported back into the App.
  19. In editing of brush can be used Angle and Tilt of stylus. But Angle uses only X axis of tilt of stylus and Tilt uses only Y axis. Is it feature or bug? I can't assign real tilt of stylus to brush. Any suggestions? Thanks
  20. Right now, it is impossible to work in Affinity for real as it's missing many pro features. One of them is having my healing brush settings saved so that whenever I enable that tool it's left how I set it up - Brush shape, Current & Below, Align, etc. The solution with Brush window is not practical. I use very flat healing brush (1% shape) and it's not working in Affinity. Not only that, but also ALT-clicking is not responsive enough for a serious job. There's a tremendous lag, the cross hair is not shrinking accordingly to brush size. Also, optional tools that are located under J shortcut should require a shift to press in order not to switch on accidentally. Professional workflows show aim for speed and efficiency, neither of which Affinity Photo is providing in sufficient detail at the moment.
  21. Changing the healing brush settings to "Current Layer & Below" will only stay persistent for the current document. Creating a new document resets that setting inside the new document, but the settings will still remain the same within the old document. If this is actually intended to be that way, that's kind of not ideal since it means there is no way to change the default setting. I mostly use "Current Layer & Below", which means I have to change it every single time I use the Healing Brush for the first time in a document. While not as intuitive as the current settings just sticking, one way to solve that would be a "Save as Defaults" button in the tool options bar if you don't want to change the current behaviour.
  22. I need some advice. I'm working on a kind of logo and i want to know which settings are the best for re-scale my documents, if a small height and width or larger sizes? Because i'm working on a 4000px1000px doc and when i watch it with the retina view my work looks awful. Also i've a problem with a boolean operation when i'm trying to add or combine some shapes, the first is how it looks and the second how i'd like to look like. Any suggestions to fix that image? I've tried adding some nods but i didn't fix it. And i don't really know what to do.
  23. I tried to change profile on a cmyk document from FOGRA 27 to FOGRA 39. Once I clicked OK the document resets to RGB and sRGB profile. So i had to change color mode and profile to cmyk again. Steps to reproduce the issue 1 - On a CMYK document, change profile on document settings (27 to 39 or viceversa) and click ok. Results in rgb document 2 - Enter document settings again and change to CMYK and desired profile
  24. I have one question that may be one theme of my settings or just don't know. I use to change a lot among 3 or 4 windows within AD but now when I switch between some windows the last one changes to Export persona, so everytime I change to one window this appears in Export persona and is kind of annoying because i've to switch again to the Draw persona, so can somebody help me please. Thanks in advance.
  25. I'm exporting PDFs from AP and pulling into a Quark Xpress doc. All looks good in preview. However, when creating a further PDF for print/screen from Quark (300 dpi) all Affinity's PDFs are unusable. Even as a screen document it's not usable. Is there a way to set the PDF quality when exporting from AP?
