  1. Hi, ist there a similar tool in AP to select a color range like in PS. Currently im struggling to achieve similar good result like in PS. Thx.
  2. Affinity Photo for Desktop feature request: 1. Add a selection wand to select areas of related color when creating a mask, with +/- and antialias options. I use Corel Draw's "magic wand" to do this. I'd love to have this feature in APhoto.
  3. When I zoom in a current selection often wanders out of sight, beyond the window’s edges. Wish: selection’s center is centred in the window as soon as it’s falls over the window’s edge.
  4. Is there a way to convert a Pen Tool path you make into a selection. There is a selection from layer I can do, but I would like to just convert the path into a selection, without having to create extra layers.
  5. I am becoming familiar with Tonal Range Selections, and comparing those with manually established blending ranges, using a grey scale gradient for testing. The three Tonal Range options, Shadows-Highlights-Midtones, while quick, do not seem to allow selection of the entire tonal range of the image. The three selections each have feathering at one or more edges, the leave part of the image left out of the selection. I tried using the Refine Edge options, which reduce, but do not eliminate the issue. Thus, I proceeded to develop a similar technique, using Blend Ranges (with a total of 10, of 10% each, for a combined possible selection of 100%). For example, here's the first 10% range, with a green fill layer underneath. I appreciate the 'smooth transition' that might have been intended by the feathered Tonal Range Selections, but find the lack of a complete selection using the provided method problematic. Since the Macro functionality of AP is limited, but at least does allow recording Blend Ranges with the recent update (!) as part of a Macro, that's the tack taken. Ultimately, as macros do not allow renaming a "Spare Channel" (nor does the focus of the name field shift, when using the right-click 'rename' option), I hope that some of these concerns might be addressed. I tried adding a Keyboard shortcut for the Spare Channel without success. Being able to edit Macros in an offline editor would be great. But, even the copy-paste-delete methods available in the likes of PS would be quite helpful. If indeed there is not an adjustment to overcome the banding I demonstrate, I am not sure if AP users are aware of this Tonal Range Selection being incomplete. My searches on this Forum did not find such a topic. I own many photo editing programs, and RAW converters, and am enjoying exploring Affinity Photo, the stacking and panorama features in particular. The many video tutorials are most appreciated as well! 8x10-gradient-no-selections.afphoto
  6. After a manual selection (Freehand selection tool) followed by the use of the Flood select tool, it is impossible to deselect. I have to save the file and reopen it again. P.
  7. Hi, On Windows, selection tools can certainly be improved. The selection brush tool is relatively useless without a tolerance factor. It does not discriminate between very different pixels (hue, saturation, luminosity) ; I can achieve a kind of selection with the flood select tool but it needs many many many mouse/pen clicks, and with a tolerance value between 1 (!) and 14... otherwise, everything is selected. An editing photo app without effective selection tools is kind of a tree without branches. Selection is a quite basic process in (almost) any workflow. I do not know how the selection tools function in Mac but I have never succeeded to rapidly make an accurate selection. Would it not be possible to add a tolerance value for the selection brush tool? And make the Flood select tool more functional ? I also find that the refine “tool” is difficult to set and often my selection is worst after using it I simply would like to stress we need the best possible tools so we all can make effective complex selection(s). Cheers, P.
  8. AP I'm having a very hard time disabling the pink boundary lines around the layers (even the ones that are not selected). It has made it impossible for me to work. I never saw them before, can someone help getting rid of them? Please check attachment for screenshot.
  9. An image is worth 1000 words, the first image is the cut out I made and second image is the cut out placed in another image... but with a border I do not want. If any more context is needed, please let me know! Any help? Thanks catonjam.afphoto
  10. This is a bug I experienced on my Windows computer only, an HP Omen desktop machine, 64-bit system, i7-7700K CPU 4.2 GHz, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti. I use both a mouse and a Huion pen tablet as input methods. This bug did not occur on Affinity Designer 1.6. So, what happens is that after 5-10 minutes of work, the Selection tool and the Node Tool stop working. I am no longer able to move or select any object in the document. I cannot even draw a selection marquee. The behavior stops if I restart Designer, but reappears soon after. This bugs make the new version of Designer unusable for me. I went back to 1.6 after noticing it, but that's inconvenient. I also have a MacBook Pro with the 1.7 on it and since I always sync files between the two computers, I can't really work seamlessly. I was hoping that the 1.7.1 update would fix the bug, but it didn't. It seems to me that it made it worse. The behavior occurs with all documents. Is anyone else experiencing this bug?
  11. I want to eliminate the a black background bg. of an open book lying on a black ground, so I just have the irregular shape of the open book. I've successfully done this on about 6 of them just like this one, using the wand. I can't (or don't know how to) use the wand on this one because of the B+W image (bottom center) abutting the blk. bg. The wand selection enters the image and I can't seem to get the "wand-subtract" setting to eliminate the inadvertent selection of portions of the image. With the magnetic lasso, I can switch to manual mode right before the problem area, trace the edge of the page across the problem area manually and them resume "magnetic" right after the problem area. When I close the selection, I get the marching ants around the book spread. I choose "invert selection" to select the blk. bg. I hit "delete" (as I do, successfully, with the wand) and nothing happens—the bg is not deleted. How do I get the bg. of this magnetic wand selection to delete? How come the selected bg of the image does not delete with the lasso but does delete with the wand selection? thanks, lettergothic
  12. In both AP and AD, I have created a reference layer (1), placed a photo on it, and lock that layer. Another layer (2) was created and is being used to hold elements traced from the locked layer. The problem, I cannot box-select the elements on the second layer if the box begins over the photo on the locked layer. Even though layer one is locked it get selected. I can also just click on the background image on that locked layer and select it, of course, I can't do anything with it once selected...because it is locked. The question: Is there a setting I am missing that prevents the object on the locked layer (or locked object) from being selected? Seems to me that if something is truly locked I should not be able to select it. Thank -Bill
  13. I have to close the window and open again to move.
  14. Hello! I'm a proud owner of the full Affinity suite and I really enjoy using it. Selection dragging in AD and AP can be chosen to be either the Corel way (drag over the whole objects) or Adobe way (intersect with objects). It would be great if we could map a hotkey or modifier to switch between the two modes, as sometimes one is more suited than the other for what I'm trying to accomplish. Thanks a lot for all the hard work!
  15. Hi guys, I would like to do some simple operations into my masking Affinity Photo, but I can't manage to do it. My project is a simple black filled pixel layer with a mask on it.I would like to duplicate an area selected of this mask with the marquee tool to another part of this same mask. But I can't find a way to do it, the "Drag + Command" operation doesn't seem to work (the selection is moving but isn't duplicated). It is just me or am I doing it wrong ? Thank you !
  16. Hello, and sorry if the question have been asked before, but I would like to know if there is a function that would select automatically the "similar objects" according to stroke colour, fill colour, and other parameters. I used this function before in illustrator (Unfortunately, I no longer have it to check) and it was very useful, particularly when you have tones of layers. One of the top reason I may use it is when I am trying to select die-cuts marks on small objects (think small stickers scattered on a big sheet of paper and needed to be cut with let's a say a plotter) We use the same artwork to print the packaging and in that case, I need to get rid of the die-cut marks (they are all with the same stroke colour). The way I was doing in Illustrator was to select one die cut and "auto-select" all the others based on the reference selected stroke colour. If it doesn't exist yet, I'd raise my voice for a feature request Thanks!

    Selection issues

    So, after this update to the latest version of AP, the ability to delete selections is no longer a thing apparently. It will only delete the entire image. No matter how I go about changing the selection or what selection method I use, it's only deleting the whole image. Why is that?
  18. Is there a way to hide a selection (marching ants) created with the lasso or marque? So you can work on a selection (with feather) without the marching ants getting in the way of seeing what you are doing to the photo? (H, command H, and space bar don't do anything)
  19. I continue to have difficulty understanding the selection tool in AP. I expect the tool to behave like other software where I can make my selection and immediately copy/paste as a new object, or delete it. It seems that I have to go through the additional step(s) of refining the outputting. Is this the case or am I missing something? I keep going back to Pixelmator Pro for fast selection edits, and I'd rather not.
  20. Is there a setting to change the way selecting objects works? How do I select one text box behind another, without first having dragged a selection around both, and shift clicking the top object? The bounding box for the top object doesn't actually have anything directly above the object that is below it. But in order for me to select the object below, I have to select them both and deselect the top one. Basically I have an ai that was converted to affdesigner. There are a lot of text objects that converted in strange ways and it's somewhat of a hassle selecting them sometimes. Here's an example. But sometimes it's even more strange because although the "a different text box" in this example, is smaller than the other box, sometimes it's converted in a way where even that small text box is really large. I forget what this was called in AI but I remember there was a setting for it. I think this was in addition to using the direct selection tool. I realize that going forward the best way to make the same kind of looking layout would be to use text box plus artistic text, but I'm dealing with several files converted from AI.
  21. Is it possible to select multiple lines or objects in Affinity Designer by color or stroke thickness? Like in Adobe Illustrator you can select all lines by a color fill or stroke thickness. This is very important for me to have this function to be able to select colors on my architectural line drawings and quickly change the thicknesses of a color group ive previously made a specific color. Thank you!
  22. Hi, I've been working with Illustrator for over 20 years now, I've been at Affinity for 2 years with the designer that I like to use now, but sometimes I have real problems with the function, like selecting and positioning node points in an object that was cut out of another (typical for logos or icons) for a better understanding here's a movie. The question, how can I select the Q and position it even better later? ––––––––––––– Hi, ich arbeite nun seit über ca. 20 Jahren mit Illustrator, bin seit 2 Jahren bei Affinity mit dem Designer dabei, den ich inzwischen sehr gerne nutze, habe aber hin und wieder echte Probleme mit der Funktion, wie zB die Auswahl und Positionierung von Knotenpunkten in einem Objekt, dass aus einem anderen herausgeschnitten wurde (typisch bei Logos oder Icons) für ein besser Verständnis hier ein Film. Die Frage, wie kann ich das Q auswählen und später noch besser positionieren? qa.mov
  23. This is a simple feature that I thought was already in Photo by default. It's very important and it's missing. I would like to be able to drag a marquee selection from the centre (circular, rectangular...), not just the corner. A shortcut would be nice, like in Photoshop (ALT + DRAG, ALT + SHIFT + DRAG for constraining proportions and so forth). While we are here I would also suggest the option for moving the selection temporarily while creating it (again in Photoshop would be by holding the Space Bar, moving the selection and then releasing the spacebar and carry on the selection creation). Thank you!
  24. Ctrl-A doesn't work in the corner-tool to select all nodes. Ctrl-A does work in the node tool and on some on other places in the software. Ctrl-A here to select all nodes would speed up the proces a lot, 'cause than we don't need to zoom out when working in high detail, just to select all nodes.
  25. When I select something, the purple outline persists after deselecting things. It only disappears as I have selected more and more parts of the design.
