  1. As the thread title implies, the colorpicker behaves strange when trying to pick up a color near it's invokation from a fill color panel. It mostly refuses there then to pick up a color under the loupe, see here ... BTW, AFAI have seen this odd behavior is equally among all tools of the Affinity line!
  2. I struggle to create gradient fills easily and efficiently. Here are the two methods that I use, and perhaps the only way. I'd be curious if someone out there has another method. Method one: Create object select "G" on the keyboard draw gradient Select the Gradient color box at the top toolbar make active a node on the gradient line select color from colour box Repeat steps 6 -7 for each node in the gradient line. Method two: Create object select "G" on the keyboard draw gradient Select the node in gradient bar Select Swatches tab in the docker on the right Select color in the Swatches pallet. Repeat steps 5 -6 for each node in the gradient line. Suggested Improvements: A) What I would like to see is the ability to double click on the color node on the object itself, not the node from the methods above, and by double click the node a swatches pallet opens for you to make your color selection. B) Another option would be to select color node, select the eyedropper in the tool bar and while holding the Shift key down select the color you want applied to that node. This method is great for sampling color from other drawings or reference images. I appoligize if there is another method alreay in place, I just haven't come across it yet. Thanks in advance. -Bill
  3. I have a 12.9” iPad Pro and the Pencil. When drawing with the pencil the color selection keeps popping up. I have had to reset the color as many as ten times in a row before it will actually draw something. It’s gotten to the point that I’m getting angry with it. Why does it do this and what can be done to keep it from coming on when not wanted?
  4. I am sure this is mostly user error but it would be appreciated if someone can point out if I am doing something wrong. So I use the Color picker alot. The problem is, every time i sample a color, it moves to the background circle on the color panel. This means when I goto my pixel or paintbrush, I have to switch the foreground and background colors every time to get the color I picked. Am I just missing something when I am trying to sample colors? I apologize if this is something simple that I am just messing up on You can see I sampled the color gray/blue on the color picker. It shows it on the front most color circle. But then when i select another tool, it moves it to the background color forcing me to switch it every time. Is there just an option I keep missing? I appreciate the assistance.
  5. Hi! I am a professional designer that has always loved Adobe Illustrator and primarily work in vector. However, I detest Adobe's new subscription model and am very attracted to the price and reviews of Affinity Designer. I downloaded the trial version last night and tried watching You Tube & Vimeo tutorials, but could not find anything like the Magic Wand Tool. I use this tool every single day and cannot live without it. Am I missing something? Is there not a way to select all of one color? The color selection abilities seemed very elementary and more similar to Photoshop which I'm not digging. I was also having trouble dragging over a group of elements to select and Group. They would not select. In my AI files, they were already grouped, but for some reason became UnGrouped when imported into Affinity. It will take me FOREVER to go in and manually click each little vector detail. Help! -Lauren
  6. 1) As you can see in the attached video file (BrushProblems.mov), there is a white halo around the first patch drawn with a brush. Lifting up the pen/mouse and then laying down the same color results in the second patch appearing to be behind the first as though it's on a separate layer, with a white outline or halo around the original patch. This will also occasionally result in horizontal line artifacts (zoom in on the blue patch on the left in HorizontalLineArtifacts.png to see this). 2) Selecting the brush tool and then holding down Alt/Opt (on Mac) and clicking on a color will usually select that color using the eyedropper / color picker. But when I go to paint with that color immediately after making the selection, it appears that the color selector overrides the brush and remains active (see BrushProblems.mov). BrushProblems.mov
  7. There must be some kind of tool because there´s no question about this in the forum: But how do I make a color selection in AD? (I know MacOSX has one aboard :D ) Cheers P.
  8. Is there any way to select only one color of an image?
