Using Affinity Photo trial 220.127.116.11. Edit : In Windows 7, Wacom Intuos Pro 4, XL. The problem: Specially with custom brushes, the outline ends up covering the area you are painting, when using medium or big size brushes (common for many painters, illustrators, even comic colorists, and 2D/3D texturing artists). Even the basic brush, round brush shape and outline (a brush which indeed is enough for high quality digital painting, with proper settings by the user, and expertise), is very productive to be able to disable it at options (due to some motion blur effect, and just for an outline's nature, it is too distracting). You can disable this in most applications (of course, I do not expect A. Photo to be like any other application. But is a common ground that this is more than desirable, as an optional setting ) and leave instead the existing crosshair, or even add options (not needed) as small cursor, big dot, triangle cursor, etc. Proposed solution : Quite some artists just completely disable the outline in other applications, and choose instead some sort of cursor (our current nice crosshair). We already have a good and efficient crosshair cursor. It is not too small and not too big, and visible enough, which is very important, too. So, just being able to disable the outline, in preferences, (completely fine if it would be not a default setting), it would perfectly do it. ( Together with the issue/feature request with the color selector-magnifier which I just posted, is the other thing that is actually stopping me from purchasing A.Photo (got Designer long ago) and actually probably moving all of my workflows, in each and every field, to Affinity Photo. I have been able to sort any other obstacle with this trial, already. ) Edit : It seems there was at least one other request about this, previous to mine. There are some differences, but there is important info about the matter that might help developers, in both threads, so, I am linking it here, as well, as could be useful for them, once arrived the moment : https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/52572-preferences-add option-to-removehide-brush-outline/
For Affinity Photo (maybe also on Designer) i use Photo with a Wacom tablet. My Problem ist: i have no Crosshair when i use "Paint Brush" ("Always show Brush Crosshair" is ON). I only see the Contour (without the a CrossHair in it) but this is not exactly enough for me. Sometimes i have the WindowsCursor instead the Brushoutline.... Can you fix this, because this is a "no go" for me i must return to evil Ph*** ;-) Thanks ps. by the way now, when i start a new Document i have the Crosshair! (when i use Paint Brush) In the Moment i open an old Document the Crosshair disapeard an the outline is there ... or sometimes the Cursor from Windows!!
I am trying the Beta of Affinity Designer for Windows and I really love it! It's great for someone like me who just cannot afford Photoshop or Illustrator. However I am having one issue. It is difficult to see your cursor crosshair in dark backgrounds because the crosshair is black. Why is it black with no white outlines? I can't see the crosshair when there is a dark background behind it! It makes it hard to see what I'm doing. I have looked in the preferences and I just cannot find any option to change the colors. Affinity, please consider this request and please add a white outline around the crosshair, or have the crosshair use the inverted colors from the background.
