Hi Affinity team, I am testing Affinity photo (German language) and have tried the twirl tool in liquify persona. I can twirl clockwise, but not anti clockwise with the "alt key". Normally you can see in the left bottom, which options the tool has. In twirl there are no other options (see attached screenshot). But I have seen in tutorials, that you can twirl anticlockwise. Has it something to do with my test version? I am using the Mac version 1.4.2. Thanks in advance. Chui
While the twirl filter is active, (starting from the Interactive Introduction), tapping on the active layer will reset the position of the twirl, but not the amount or radius, so i assume this is a bug (due to inconsistency, it doesn't look like a "reset feature"). This also seems to happen inconsistently with live filters (after converting it to a live filter, i expanded the layer in the layer palette, tapped on the live filter layer, and the settings were reset, but i couldn't reproduce it a second time). While the same filter is active, changing the opacity of the active layer with the opacity slider results in extreme flickering. Once the finger is removed from the slider, the opacity is shown seemingly correctly. When it's a live filter there seems to be considerable problem with visibility. Parts of the layer are missing, or not updating, when toggling visibility, opacity, and changing filter settings (like the Twirl position), seemingly as a consequence of the live filter. Please see the screenshot attachment. EDIT: when i toggled away to another app and back to Affinity Photo, this corruption clears up, which validates that it's a bug, not some kind of hidden masking (sometimes zoom and pan will force a successful redraw, sometimes not). Also, it would help a lot to have there be some kind of labeling on the filter controls panel to indicate to the user that they're working with a static filter or a live filter. There's really nothing on the screen that lets us know what we're doing if we've walked away and come back mid-action.
In the liquify persona, when you click on the pinch tool, its effect on the image is twirling the image. However, when you choose twirl, it allows you to pinch. Not a huge problem, since you can just select the other tool, but it would be nice to be labeled correctly. It was correct in previous versions. Thanks!
