Hello, apologizes in advance if this has already been mentioned but, will touch rotation ever be supported in Affinity Designer? I really love both applications but my use with them is awkward when trying to create freehand drawings and illustrations because the canvas can't be rotated which helps when drawing angles with clean lines. Every other creative application worth its salt supports this and has supported it for years (Sketchbook Pro, ArtRage, Clip Studio EX, Rebelle, ArtFlow, etc) but not Affinity Designer/Photo? It seems a bit strange considering the wealth of options otherwise presented in the package.
Hi, I purchased the Licenses version of Affinity Photo from Itunes. I installed in on my iMac. We want to switch ourselves from Photoshop to Affinity Photo but we are facing the following major problems, listed below: 1. Selection Tool a. There is no polygonal Lasso tool. Is there any alternative to that? b. Cannot select more than one region using the pen tool. How can we add two selections without getting the first path deselected? 2. Color Lock There is no color lock available for layers, that prevents colors to go outside the layer boundary. Do you have such a lock? Can it be achieved using any plug-in? 3. Smudge tool Smudge tool is breaking up the mixed colors thus creating a dirty color instead of smudging them properly. Is there any setting required to fix that? 4. Auto Select When we are clicking on a particular part of the image to check which layer that region is in, the group is getting selected in which the layer belongs but that particular layer remains unrecognizable. Thus we have to find the layer manually. Is there a way to select layers instead of groups? 5. Warp Tool When we want to warp a particular selection of a layer and select it with selection tool, the mesh warp tool is applying the result in the entire layer instead of applying just on the selected region. How can we apply warp only on a selected region? 6. Straight Line We cannot draw straight line in any angle using the brush tool by pressing the Shift key. Is there any other way to do that? 7. Canvas Rotation We cannot rotate the canvas in an angle for our ease of painting. Is there any way to do that? Please assist us so we can fully utilize this software. We really like everything else this application is offering. If there is any plugin or bugfix, we are also ready to go for that. Kindly revert with your suggestions. Thanks, Sachin
Ever since canvas rotation was added, I've lost count of how many times I've had to reset the rotation after having accidentally rotated the view. Although it is good to be able to view an image at different angles while editing, it can get frustrating to constantly rotate the view when all you're trying to do is zoom in or out. I think that there should be an option to lock rotation so you don't accidentally rotate the view. This would make things a lot easier for me, as it seems every time I zoom in, my image ends up askew and I have to reset rotation before I can get on with my work.
