koda1000 posted a topic in (Pre 1.7) Bugs on WindowsI am using Windows 10 version 16299.461 on a Microsoft Surface Pro 4. I am attempting to use the brush tool to paint and every so often press the alt key to temporarily switch to the eye-dropper tool to sample some color and then return to the brush tool by releasing the alt key so that I can continue painting with the newly sampled color. This works correctly while using a mouse but does not work at all with the pen (stylus). When I press the alt key and tap with the pen, the color that is picked up is the color directly underneath the mouse pointer (where the mouse/touchpad was last left resting) rather than where the pen is actually tapping. Therefore, I can not ever sample a color while using the stylus. If I can't figure out how to get this to work with Affinity Photo then there is no point in using Affinity Photo. This is a major part of my workflow and I can not use a mouse, that is far too slow and clumsy. Am I missing something? Is there a setting I need to turn on? Or is this a bug? (Edit) I can't even use the eye-dropper with the pen (stylus). Each time I tap the screen with the pen tip the picked color is the one where I last used my laptop touchpad. I was hoping I could alternate between pressing "I" and then tapping a color with my pen and then pressing "b" to begin brushing; repeating as necessary. But I can't do that. It is as if Affinity Photo is ignorant that I am using a pen.
Hey Affinity Team, I just started trying this program after 15-20 years with Illustrator. And the first thing that I noticed is wow - pretty awesome! 2nd was that when hitting i to select the eye dropper - to give a shape some color - nothing happened. I think this is an important feature - as when I went to click on the eye dropper my shape just turned black. (not the intended result) Hope that makes sense. Also scaling while holding alt - would be nice if it scaled on the spot (where it was in relation to that position) In kindness, nenuphar :)
