  1. I am developing and editing a single RAW pic with no app running in the background and this goddamn supposed full frame ios editor which i am running on my Ipad Pro has crashed for the third time right now.. This is what i get for spending 20$ on an Ipad App Of the Year!! I am running the Latest app version 1.6.7 on my ipad pro ios version 11.2.5.. I am requesting the developers to do something about this issue... Looking forward to your immediate response in this..

  3. Afternoon, I just experienced a 'very strange' crash...no bug reports,; no dialogue box...It just immediately and rapidly quit app for no reason.. It's the first time I have experienced this one....didn't happen in the beta testing for 1.6 1 xxx. Using latest version all day yesterday with no issue at all..Working on same file this afternoon for about 15 minutes..just shut down AP Info.. may not be of any use for this one but... 1. Using pure vector file 2. Deployed graduation 3. Switched to pen tool 4. Drawing nodes 5. Switching graphic styles 5. Down it went... I will see if it happens again today...see if I can get more details NB: installed new Wacom Driver released 06 03 2018
  4. HI, I've been using Affinity Designer for a couple of years now and it has become one of my favourite apps to use. But there are a few small issues that I've been hoping would be fixed with each release and haven't. Issues that just grate on me and diminishes my love for the app every time they come up. 1. Undoing an opt+drag copy just undoes the drag action and not the couple action. So my layers get littered with extra copies that I have to manually seek and destroy. A real time waster. 2. I use geometry a LOT, it drives me crazy the when I add/subtract/intersect shapes in a group, that the new shape skips out of the group and gets moved to the top of all layers. And then I have to grab and a put it back into the group it belongs to. 3. I've found that when I export an artboard, if the position of the artboard isn't set to a whole number, then the export process will add 1px to the dimension. If I have a 100x100px artboard and the artboard position within the document is set to x: 2.5 y:2.5, then the exported the image will be 101x101px. Make exporting really tedious when I have a lot of artboards, since I have to go in and move every artboard that's not positioned on whole numbers. 4. If I select an object by clicking it in the layers panel, when I press shift+arrow I expected it to super nudge (10px) the object on the artboard, but instead, it selects more layers in the layers panel. I use Designer a lot at my job and if it weren't for those 4 things, I'd be super happy with the experience and recommend it to everyone. But as it is, because it occurs with functions I use all the time, it wears me down. thanks -Pete
  5. Hi Mark Thanks for the new Beta.. and I appreciate all the hard work that I am sure has gone into the latest updates. Overall looking good!.It has been stable even with large number of vector objects contained in some of my crazy files. There are a couple of things that I have noticed: 1. I am still finding a couple of recurring brush issues. One of which I reported earlier after the 1.6 launch in this thread issue 4: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/49337-ad-16089-ad-16190-beta-brush-bugs-and-some-weirdness/....but was having difficulty getting it to appear...Until this afternoon (as attached movie!) I thought it was occurring when I exchanged a nozzle but today I found a similar issue with the replacement/removal of the Base Texture. hence the video. Previously I was able to retrieve the 'working brush'/selected brush by toggling the active personna ...but it appears not to be the case with this issue. 2. I think this has already been reported with the 'live version' 1.6.1.93 that sometimes the settings are not saved with the brush. I also found that if you duplicate a brush the settings get copied to the new brush but not maintained in the active brush after you close the dynamic/brush window. (not frequent in latest beta)...or just ignoring the changes Brush fail2.wmv
  6. I'm having a problem with one of my projects kicking me out when I work on it. How do I send you a crash report and what info do you need from me in order to file one?
  7. Facing layout problem while typing or pasting foreign language like Arabic, Hebrew, Bengali, Hindi etc. check the attachment example...
  8. Hi there, I am using windows 10 with the latest version of affinity photo (bought it yesterday). I am trying to make a selection of the image I have attached, fences on a white background. This should be fairly easy to select...I just can't seem to select it properly. I have checked and the layer is pixel and I have selected it. But when I use the selection brush tool it goes here there and everywhere. It is as though it cannot differentiate between the very contrasted background and fence? There are no other layers in the project at this time either. Not sure if this is just a little bug or not, but I know when I tried the trial version a few months back the selection brush tool worked great! Would really appreciate any tips! Thanks, Billie
  9. Bonjour, J'ai remarqué il y a quelque jours qu'Affinity ferme tout précipitamment et m'affiche le rapport d'erreur à envoyer dès que je clique sur l'onglet Pinceaux. Celui sur la colonne de droite à côté des couleurs, traits etc. Ça n'y manque jamais, dès que je clique => ferme tout + rapport d'erreur, le tout en même pas 2 sec. Je ne peux absolument pas utiliser cet onglet. Quelqu'un peut-il m'aider ? Merci d'avance
  10. i have a bug, the exported SVG file is not show the real resolution. i create 100x100 px in affinity designer, and export it with export persona, but what i find when i open it in another app like Illustrator or Corel draw, it's show 800x600 px (SVGA). i export it as SVG for web and SVG for export and make some change with that option's, but i did not find the way to make it exported with same resolution. here i put 2 images. np: if i open the SVG file on affinity, there's no problem, but the problem only happened when the file is opened on another vector app
  11. So, running Mac OS Sierra 10.12.6 with infinity and Nikon plugins and all’s well. Then I update to affinity 1.6.6 and its all gone wrong. Froze on installing, sorted that now it opens and won’t start from dock. Will start from apps so refreshed app in dock, no joy, all plugins are missing, if I go to preferences I get nothing at all no preference screen nothing. So can’t set plugins or anything else for that matter. The opening logo remains for ages. And the opening screen no longer appears at all. In general its gone to crap. Have checked Mac and can find no problems, no issues with fire walls so. Where can I find the old affinity 1.5? I’ll use that as it worked. Or what’s the matter with this update???. Starting to regret giving up PS. Attached photos are 5 minuets after opening, and can’t do anything with it.
  12. Affinity Photo and Designer show wrong colours when importing screenshots on macOS. How to reproduce: Make a screenshot with macOS Screenshot Tool Drag & drop or place the image into an existing document The displayed colours are wrong Workaround: The Screenshot Tool applies the ACES CG Linear Profile In the macOSPreview App: Change the the profile to "Adobe RGB" before import. Original screenshot and picture of the result attached. Thank you very much, Harald
  13. Hi I have a samsung NEX 500 and I tried loading raw pictures to the app but the app shows no pictures when I tried to edit them plz fix this issue
  14. I know you guys are working hard to get the bugs ironed out for the 1.6, but is there any chance of releasing smaller updates?? I love the software, but its starting to be a hinderance at work...i mean it crashes 70% of the time when moving artboards around(mostly i've noticed when moving them far apart or very fast to be precise). It's these smaller silly little things which i think many users are having an issue with. Sketch for example does a great job of releasing updates n fixes often.
  15. The constraints in Affinity Designer are seriously flawed. To illustrate, I've attached a file that illustrates several problems at once. Here at least the following unexpected situations happen when trying to change or remove the constraints from the existing objects, or grouping them: Objects change dimensions; Objects change position; Objects get invisible; Objects change scale so they are not proportional anymore; Undo no longer restores objects to their original state; A change to a single object affects all similar objects although there are no symbols in the file. I'm using AD for about a year now. As you may know, I've patiently reported these problems several times but unfortunately nothing changed yet. Please don't get me wrong, I love AD and I appreciate all the work you do. Since working in UI projects (which use lots of artboards, symbols and constraints) is the main reason I adopted Affinity Designer, I'm always trying to circumvent bugs that shouldn't exist in the first place, and these are among the worst. I think they are serious flaws and I'd very much like you to provide a solution. Thanks, and sorry for the long post. Bugs - constraints 2.afdesign
  16. I've been using Affinity Designer since its inception. Sometimes it really does help with illustration-based tasks, making it faster to work with than Adobe Illustrator. However, the "Expand Stroke" function is still terrible even after several years of development. Has this feature been entirely ignored? This is an example of what I'm talking about: After creating a stroke with the Stroke Pressure modified, I attempted to use "Expand Stroke." As you can see, the nicely rounded stroke converts into something pointy like a dagger. I searched through the forum for help, but all I found was a trail of complaints regarding "Expand Stroke" going back to 2014. With 2017 almost finished, it would be GREAT if this got fixed. Looks like my "timesaving" approach by using Affinity Designer rather than Adobe Illustrator is actually going to cost me a bit of time.
  17. I cant open my affinity designer beta version. I dont know why?
  18. I am using AP for iPad pro 2017 and sometimes i want to smash the pad against the wall!!! -Thanks, Affinity... The app is so EXTREMLY BUGGY, it is ABSOLUTLY NOT USABLE! Youre working on a pic for maybe 1 or 2 hours and you want to make a last selection or something else and then... CRASH! Every changes lost! I want to know WHEN is the next USABLE update release date????? This app is actual FAAAR FAR AWAY from a "PHOTOSHOP-KILLER"! You maybe got 2% of it! So... WHEN COMES THE UPDATE TO IPAD???????
  19. This bug is critical for normal usage! Sometimes when I move my mouse across the screen the whole app glitches
  20. I believe that some of the brush dynamics are not functioning. Hue Jitter saturation Jitter Luminance Jitter All seem to unresponsive and not reflect changes to the adjacent slider. Same applies to AP beta version
  21. Hi guys, first of all this software is great! It's the closest thing to Photoshop on an iPad. As someone who uses Photoshop daily as an illustrator. I noticed some stuff that can be improved and a few bugs I've run into. SUGGESTED FEATURES: Remember last used brush category. Ability to drag and rearrange brushes. Accumulation and Opacity are confusing terms. At the dock below, it says Opacity but when editing a brush setting it says Accumulation which you would think is the same as Flow. Maybe it should be replaced to something like Opacity Accumulation or just Opacity. More brush texture blend options. Faster Eyedropper switching method.There are only 2 methods to use the eye dropper now, one is the finger hold gesture and the other one is using the eyedropper button + pressing on the newly acquired color in the Colour studio. Both are very inefficient. Basically just copy how Procreate eyedrops colors with one a button to hold while instantly changing the loaded color of the brush. The triangle shape inside the colour wheel shouldn't rotate. It only confuses you where the whites or blacks are. A layer should always be selected so assistant doesn't need to constantly add unnecessary layers. Ability to create clipping masks BUGS Importing some abr files results in the texture getting tiled three times horizontally with a huge white empty gap below resulting in gaps in the texture when painting. The only fix would be to reapply a new texture file. There's a bug when setting the associated tool with a brush. If you use a brush set to paint then switch to a brush set to eraser for example, it will not change the nozzle and other settings but only change the tool type. Double tapping it will suddenly load the rest of the eraser brushes settings. I'll try to add more to this forum if I find more but so far those are my findings. Thanks for reading!
  22. Using an Apple Pencil, just edited brightness on a pic, then went to use inpainting brush, and it does not work, I do t see the usual red mask, yet when I remove pencil from the screen the usual inpainting black screen comes up for a few seconds suggesting it's editing something. It looks like the screen is not registering the pencil in the right location. To be honest this app is fast becoming more trouble thans it's worth as it also crashes back to the home screen constantly
  23. Hey guys, Crashing on almost every pic I try and edit. In a nutshell I'm: Editing jpgs and tiff files From cloud sources (iCloud and Dropbox) Mostly using the select tool and then editing exposure, colour etc Have used the inpainting brush I'm not sure exactly what makes it happen, but I end up losing my edits. It's a real pain Using iPad Pro 10.5 and ios 10.3.2
  24. From the first day AP was released for Windows (even the beta) I was desperately trying to make AP work for me .... I wanted AP to be the THE (first real) alternative for PS (considering I couldn't find enough swear words for Adobe and their cloud policy). I was accepting and reporting all bugs you obviously had to expect from a sw that complex. I was trying to make the product better as quick as possible by generating test cases, videos to show bugs and even offering Serif my support in development and localisation. And seeing the sw that had great features, good customer support, a big crowd of (active) fans and users - what could go wrong to make AP the new PS in a long term? As you can see I'd do everything to make this baby mine. One can hardly approach a product more positively than I did with AP ... After all that time I see myself closing PS6 tonight working on a customer project and I'm asking myself: why do I still not(!) use AP? AP actually hast most (>95%) of the functions I frequently use in my daily work as a photographer. Even the plugins work in AP. Some functions are even more powerful than in PS6. Still I don't even think of AP when it comes to productive work for customers. And it's not because I'm used to PS ... not because it's a habit - there are very real reasons for it. Some of them I often mentioned before but serif keeps ignoring them up to the stage of not even bother to make any kind of comment. So I though I'd open this topic and bring my issues (again) to the attention of serif staff and other users ... maybe I'm not the only one. To find some good examples for my problems I decided to take a current project that requires stacking (where I feel AP is a lot easier with than PS). 7 RAW pictures that require alignment and focus stacking to adapt different areas of the picture. And what I'm describing now is not an exception ... things I describe are not necessarily reproduceable ... but it does not happen with ANY OTHER PROGRAM I use on my machine (just for those who already start blaming the state of my system as a scapegoat!). And whenever I start AP known and new things like that happen. I'm using lots of memory and disk space ... a still reasonably quick graphics card and processor on Win 7! After taking some time for reading the 7 big RAW files, aligning them and doing the focus stacking I get the processed picture. As well as a source list including all of my stacked single pics and the resulting pic. I add a levels filter and a curve filter to the file. Already after adding the curve filter the histogram is not displayed any more. I know this bug. It has been reported quite a while ago by me (and maybe other people) - apparently wasn't looked after. This does not always happen ... and is not clearly reproduceable, but since levels and curve setting are pretty useless unless you can see the histogram (except for those who do not know what they are doing) it is a bit of a bummer. Certainly knowing that it can only be solved by saving the picture and restarting AP. So I skipped this step and clicked on the first single stacked picture in the displayed list. First of all not even the focus did change to the newly selected picture I clicked on. 5 Seconds later AP completely disappeared and Lightroom was the active application (first I thought AP did crash, but it did not ... it just completely lost it's focus) ... so by clicking the task list I could get it back ... the behaviour interestingly was reproduceable. Now going to the develop persona and coming back to the photo persona the "source list" was reduced to one file called "untitled". Where did all the 8 files disappear to? OK, better don't ask. Now I want to compare the newly stacked picture with another similar picture I took. So I decide to undock the current window. Really a bad idea ... the new window does not resize but moves somewhere mostly outside the current working area. (Just as ONE example: when I do this in PS the new window resize to the layer size and displays with a certain distance at the top left corner of the workspace. PS comes with ready made presets for windows alignment. PS allowns a window to adapt to the picture size all the time. With AP it takes me ages to adjust this new window to the working area I'd like to have. And believe me I really tried hard to get it working or to adapt to this ridiculous user-hostile attitude - no chance. For those who did not get it yet: There is a good reason why the PS Window Menu has more than 25 additional commands for window adjustments - it's not because they had nothing else to do!) But many other things really set me up .... it's this lack of responsiveness of the UI (sometimes) ... you sometimes can drag sliders and they will not move ... or maybe with significant delay (seconds later). Sudden changes of focussed windows for reasons I don't understand (so you have to click in the window again you want to work in). Trying to confirm an action e.g. in a Windows UI manner (pressing Enter if you want to confirm a setting) and nothing will happen. Lacking "OK" and "Cancel" buttons so dialogs will remain open unless you find this tiny cross at the top. Settings I can't save (standard values in dialogs), paths AP will not remember (saving a picture where I loaded the original from). The export persona tries successfully to hide my user setting for standardised output format (bi-cubic,sRGB, JPG) as the last(!) entry in an extensive long list of useless "Standard" setting ... and it makes me search my standard setting for EACH picture I do export ... it seems to me like Serif is challenging my stamina and endurance in so many ways. I could go on and on on theses topics... my conclusion and answer to the question "why there's still no love" would be the following: Serif build an high performance Aston Martin Sports car ... but when you want to open the door you break your finger nails, the steering wheel is covered with nettles and the safety belt will come loose while driving. The gas pump nozzle is mounted in the middle of the roof, the bonnet occasionally opens while driving and it takes 15 switches 3 hooks and an armoured metal plate to get to the opener for the boot as well as many other obstructions. In a race against the Adobe Maserati it can easily keep up, is quicker in some curves sometimes even drives offroad ... But what car do you like to drive and will you choose to drive to work? Sadly Serif does not realise, understand nor care for these essentials at all! They can't stop celebrating AP won races (now on an iPad) ... and seem to forget that there a people around need to use the car on a daily base ... I'm not waiting for Affinity Publisher ... I'm waiting for AP to get a daily working horse! Cheers, Timo All descriptions refer to the latest final Version 1.5.2.69
  25. The Rotation Jitter Slider for simple Square Brushes is not functioning correctly in both 1.5.2.69 and Beta 1.6.0.72 Steps to Reproduce 1. Pixel Persona 2. Create new square brush 3. Adjust Jitter Rotation Settings [set profile to something (random)] The Preview rotates but the brush when 'stamped' to page is still at original orientation. Works fine if you create an Intensity Brush with a square bitmap nozzle
