    Whole Pixels

    I've desperately been fighting back against Affinity's choppy/jagged selection marquee (mentioned in a previous post I made), but it's making life and work really difficult. For some reason Affinity software's freehand selections appear unnecessarily jagged along the edges, which is a nightmare for those of us who sometimes use the selection tools as drawing tools. One of my clients have pointed this out all over a piece of artwork I created for them to a point where they said the artwork could not be used and ended up working with another illustrator instead. As you can imagine, this is quite a big deal and I've done a deep dive to figure out what the issue is so that this doesn't happen again. I've tried my Yiynova MVP22U tablet, my Wacom Cintiq 13HD, as well as my 12.9 iPad Pro with Apple Pencil and the issue is there across the board, which makes me pretty sure that everyone is experiencing this too. This is not a feathering issue, and not an aliasing issue - this is just a normal selection, created with the default settings as I do not want a feathered selection. For some reason the freehand/lasso selection in Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, Artstudio Pro, Sketchbook Pro, Krita, and Medibang, all produce perfectly smooth freehand selections, but in Affinity they appear wavey, jagged, jittery and blocky in areas. For some reason the selection tools select whole pixel blocks on screen which causes an often jagged and blocky appearances to the selection. I've noticed that this is significantly worse when using a stylus/tablet pen to create selections, but for some reason it's not nearly as bad when using a mouse. Unfortunately this doesn't really help as the majority of my work is digitally hard drawn. I think this may also be the same thing that causes the raster brushes in Affinity to feel less fluid than those in other drawing applications. It's difficult to explain, but it's almost as if the pixel density that the software works at is different to what my monitor is displaying, which almost causes a miscommunication between the tablet input and what's registered by the software. I'm running out of options here. I may even need to revert back to Photoshop until this issue is resolved, and that's the last thing I want to do. If you would like to see what I'm referring to, here's a link back to my previous post about the issue. I've also reattached the file that I created to show what I mean: Jagged Edges.afdesign
