  1. Hi all, I thought I saw in the release notes for Affinity Designer 1.6.5.135 that the bug where the eyedropper tool doesn't work if you use a stylus (only works with mouse) had been fixed. However, I am still having this issue; can't sample and apply color with the stylus. I'm on a Microsoft Surface Pro 4 running WIndows 10. Is this in the works to be fixed? Thanks, Erica
  2. Hi, It would be really helpful if you guys add the Eye-dropper to the color picker panel of the Lens Filter adjustment layer. Thanks!
  3. Hello, I'm using Affinity Photo on 64 bit Windows 8. In some files when I use eyedropper tool, the color I pick up is way darker than the original. I wonder why that might be? In other files I don't encounter that issue. I first started that file in Designer trial, and then continued in Photo. Can it be the reason? How do I fix that? It's really slowing down my work.
  4. Using Photo trial 1.6.4.104 . Edit : In Windows 7, Wacom Intuos Pro 4 XL. The problem : The current interactive color picker tool, that is, switching to pick color with alt key, or my case, side pen button configured as alt key, while you are with the brush tool, to very quick pick a color between 2 big chunks of painted color, so to paint with an intermediate color. This is very very fast and common technique for color blending while painting. There are many other painting, illustration or texture making techniques that also need fast color picking. To all of those, this problem applies. The problem resides in several issues that I believe get solved with an easy solution. The magnifier lens that show up once you click on a canvas point (I am clicking, not dragging) to let you better pick the pixel you want is very good for photography but not important for painting. And I believe it is causing to lag the action, has a sort of small time there very noticeable when using very often, very fast (a need for painting-blending, also called glazing technique). Sometimes, if fast enough wont pick the color, at times. It's a bit hard to work so when painting (loosing focus, slowing down, etc). This all by setting the alt key in a wacom pen side button. One very big problem is that very often, a fast click wont pick the color. Probably because it is expecting a drag, not a click like in other software apps. A suggested possible solution : Could it be possible / easy (I have no idea) to add a "not to be default" option so that users can disable the magnifier / dragging ? The eyedropper tool works a bit more like this, although if dragging or keeping it pressed, the magnifier ends up showing up, but you need to drag more/less dry click for it to happen. Well, in any case, not to replicate with the interactive picker the blue marquee around the object that the eyedropper tool forces, that would be bad while painting. Having an "alt + pen click" (no drag, no magnifier) color selection on canvas like in any other 2D application. With not even the magnifier on it. As I believe the estimation/input about if is there dragging or not, or actually displaying the lens, is adding some delay there, and causing some times not to even pick the color. Or never pick it, if fast enough. There even might be photographers wishing to have at least the option to deactivate the lens, so to have a blazing fast color picker, so, I guess is a good thing to add for any group of people, always as an option that does not need to be default after install. This would be huge for me (and I suppose, for any other person painting, making comics, illustration, texturing, etc, etc) , for my workflow. (a reason to purchase, indeed) Too lengthy version here, but I realized I hadn't done a formal feature request, and I was talking about two requests in same post (about digital painting requests in general), mixed with another matters, and it was too long, in any case.
  5. When using alt for color picker magnifying glass seems to instantly launch and makes my color picker do weird things, making it too frustrating to pick colors quickly. When switching to color picker using a shortcut magnifying glass seems not to even begin loading unless i move cursor a little bit with pen pressure applied, which works great for me since color picking is accurate, fast and just like in other software. However if I switch off color picker too quickly (happens alot) or even before I release pen pressure line appears. Please consider doing something about magnifying glass if it's in fact the cause. It's neat for vector stuff, but for painting for me I prefer to be able to pick a color fast just how other programs do it. Also I promise I don't miss colors on purpose!

  6. Hi all! I'm a lamster from adobe illustrator. My question is about matching stoke style in AD: 1. I found a similar tool as Eyedropper in illustrator called Colour Picker Tool. Does this tool have the same function in illustrator? 2. When I use Colour Picker Tool, it just copies the colour information. Can the Colour Picker Tool copy the line stoke information as Eyedropper in illustrator? For example, I draw a line with Black stoke colour and 1mm width. Now I want to apply this line style it to another line. In Ai, I need to use Eyedropper tool to inject the style. What should I do in AD? Thanks! Hao
  7. Issue #1: In AF 1.6.1.93 in RGBA/16 with a single pixel layer and nothing else, I use color picker from the Color panel (not from tool palette) and get incorrect behavior as demonstrated by the screenshots below. The color picked seems to be offset with one pixel compared to the box shown. See that the RGB values for the blue boundary are still showing the same white values as outside the blue boundary. Problem only happens if dragging onto the image area, not when dragging the eyedropper to gui elements. Problem is independent from zoom level, happens with 100% as well. Issue #2: In AF 1.6.1.93 in RGBA/16 have a single pixel layer and nothing else. When using the Color Picker tool from the tool icon palette, and set a radius other than 1*1 in the tool settings header. If you single-click the image area, the averaged color is picked as expected. However if you click-drag in the image area, you get the magnifying glass and get to select more precisely the picked position (good) however you loose the averaging (bad). The color picked with click-dragging (and magnifying glass) ignores the radius setting, which must be a bug.
  8. Hi guys, new to the forum and not sure if this is the right place to post or if there's another post like this. I've looked but couldn't find it. At the moment there's a shortcut to select a color off a layer but it feels very odd from a user's perspective. I see the color change in the color slider/wheel when I select a color but it doesn't automatically apply. I'm not sure if I am missing something here, but when you use the eyedropper tool in Illustrator, you select the layer you want to change the color, use the eyedropper tool and select something else and it automatically changes it to that color. Is that something that can be done for Affinity Designer too? I just see the color changing but it doesn't apply to my selected layer. Thanks!
  9. The magnifier of the eyedropper tool has a grey gradient in the lower half, which I find really distracting when trying to sample colours. It passes right through the reticle! Any chance you'd consider removing it? Thanks.
  10. Not sure if this counts as a bug or a feature request, but currently the Colour Picker Tool does not recognise transparency. (This makes it pretty hard to do icon design for non-retina screens in Affinity.)
  11. I've noticed that the Color Picker Tool does not seem to impact other tools as i would expect, for example the Color Replacement Brush. Am i doing something wrong?
  12. EDIT: sorry i posted in the wrong category.. this is for IPAD As the title suggests. This is a very basic feature. Right now to use an eye dropped color, you still need to click on the new color in the Color Studio Panel each time which is very cumbersome especially if you are trying to blend in or copy multiple colors. This should function like all other similar apps where the brush will instantly get the color you eye drop. Hope this is addressed soon since this app is really great!
  13. I'd like to see the eyedropper tool available inside any color adjustment panel to help choose colors already in the image to sample from.
  14. Hello: How do I activate the eyedropper in Layer Effects/Gradient Overlay/Color Picker? Thanks.
  15. After setting the color picker source to "Current Layer", it still picks using the "Global" setting when using the option-click shortcut for picking a color. Can there be a way to set the source and have it stay that way when using the option-click shortcut?
  16. The eyedropper is off by one pixel up and to the left in the color that it picks up. I am eyedropping a single black pixel on a white background and with the eyedropper right on the black it picks up white, and only with the eyedropper up and to the left one pixel does it pick up black. Screenshots attached. Affinity Photo 1.5.1 on OS X 10.11.6 on a MacBook Pro (17-inch, Mid 2009) with NVIDIA GeForce 9400M 256 MB.
  17. When I used the eyedropper tool in illustrator, it copied the attributes of the object that I clicked on with the dropper. For example, when I'm making a square of some color, and I want it to have an opacity of x% and a blending mode of Multiply, all I have to do in illustrator is make a square, then eyedrop another shape with those attributes and possibly change the color (all of my stuff involves layers on layers of differently sized shapes with the same blending mode.) In Affinity, is there a way to do this? The eyedropper copies the exact color on the canvas, and when I want to do my layering thing, I have to save the base color on the swatch, then change the blending mode and opacity manually from 100% normal --> 25% Screen or whatever every single time I make a new shape. The styles menu works kinda well, but it's not really the same speed/convenience for me. Thanks for the help!
  18. In Photoshop, you can set a simple preference for the eyedropper, to pick the color from the currently selected layer, or the resulting color from the displayed (flattened) set of all layers, or some other options: I regularly paint on a layer underneath other layers, and in PS I can select colors from the layer I'm painting on while I work. In Affinity, when I use the color picker while I'm painting, it picks the resulting color from all layers, which means that new color is dramatically wrong when I apply it to the "underpainting" layer. Is this an existing feature I haven't been able to find? Or is this simply not an option in Affinity?
  19. Hi, I am having an issue where any colour I select with the eyedropper tool or when I select a colour in any swatch, the colour that is applied will be a grey. I cannot get any colour to be applied with any tool. Selecting any colour (such as blue /red etc) will result in an equivalent shade of grey being selected. I cannot work out what I have done to make this happen! Please Help! Charles
  20. Hello, I've just started using Affinity Designer for Windows but I've run into a few issues that are quite puzzling (Note I'm coming from Photoshop / Illustrator). I've discovered that the eyedropper icon that appears in the fill area needs to be clicked and dragged to pick a color but is there not an easier way? I've made a gradient and I'd like to sample a color from another object but right now I need to select the handle for the color I want to change, use the eye dropper to select the color and then click the color to apply it. Is there not simpler way to do this? (i.e. not having to click+drag AND confirm my selection).
  21. If possible, can you guys please make it so the alt button selects color instead of i? I also think that the process of dragging the tool to select color is a bit odd feeling, especially coming from photoshop. If you could improve this feature that would be awesome! Thanks
  22. I’ve tried to get the sampler tool, and it beat me. I hope this panel and experience using this tool gets a refresh and become WAY more intuitive. I have a sampler point on screen and that thing WILL NOT disappear!
  23. Hi there, I thought about improvements of the colour picking system, particularly about the eyedropper. I must admit that it’s quite comfortable to select a colour and have it available in a separate inkwell (the small circle right to the eyedropper symbol). On the other hand there's always the need for a second click to apply this color. And it’s very cumbersome to try out different colors on an active shape by picking those colours one after another from the environment of that shape in a complex piece. So what about a linked or “live” eyedropper (see my mockup)? – I would imagine to have it work this way. First you select your desired shape, and when the link button is engaged, the small circle to the right of the eyedropper is linked to the fill / stroke selector on the left. When “fill” is selected for example, you can take the eyedropper to the piece you are working on and whatever colour you are sampling by hovering over the canvas is immediately applied to the fill selector and to the active shape’s fill. Just as it happens when we use the colour wheel or sliders. (For instance, we could drag the eyedropper to the blue triangle in my screen shot and apply the blue fill immediately to the highlighted red one.) Now it would be very embarrasing if there is still a method to achieve this … but if there’s none, this would be my proposal … ;) Cheers, Alex
  24. I got really used to a similar feature in Sketch – when the color picker is activated, all the guides and gridlines are automatically hidden. When you click and pick a color, they reappear. That's a little touch, but it makes picking colors quicker and error-proof. I'd love to see a similar feature implemented in AD. :)
  25. I've read there's a "new color picker" (eyedropper) in AD 1.5 (source). That's really great news. ...but i don't see any improvements to that thing. And i can't find more information about it. How to use the new one? What's the hot key? Why there are no details about it?
