Hi, I really like this software and use it to record my drawings and publish videos. I would like to stick where I am drawing to the background instead of it floating. So like sticking the white paper to the dark background. When I record, I can see some jumps due to my mouse moving to press other buttons. Is this possible please? Thanks.
Hey there, I'm starting a post about the interface problems in order to list and create a roadmap like kind of post. I'm gonna also suggest some optimisations of the UI in order sometimes to gain only 1 click, but definitely improve workflow and reduce the amont of stress/anxiety people get when starting using a new app. I apologize for my English and if a Moderator wants to edit my posts, I have no problem with that. I'm going to edit this post regularly and add screenshots of the issues I encounter as well as the suggestions. Issues Case 01: This is my current workspace and this just happened, the dropdown menu should have the higher z-index value in my mind. Case 02: I find it really hard to resize the Tool Panels (Finding the scale cursor at the bottom of the panel). It is not possible to resize the boxes once they are snapped and some Tool Panels have always the same size where they aren't floating like the Swatches Panel which result in the lost of usable space. Case 03: It is currently not possible to create two columns of Tool Panel next to each other, the second one can only be made of floating menus. Suggestions - When the gradient tool is selected, a large part of the Tool area is empty, whereas we have two dropdown menus "Context" & "Type". It would be nice to have icons instead on the free space available like the two blue highlighted icons on the image. It would save many clicks. - When you create a color palette from system/document/application it gives you a tons of colours. And I didn't find a way to remove several colours at once and it will take age to remove them one by one. This is a problem for creating style guide for example. - Is there a keyboard shortcut for the colour picker? I didn't find it in the documentation. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Thanks for your time and I hope you find that is relevant feedbacks and useful post. Have a nice day! Eddy
Hi all! I've been meaning to ask: do you have plans to make all the interface elements dockable (to screen edges, that is) *even* in separated mode like in CS? It's not a big deal having AD (and, I'm thinking, APub as well) in a single, consolidated window, but what about Affinity Photo, when it finally comes? Much like in Photoshop, I'm hoping you can drag and drop layers from one document to another and, as such, a unified, tabbed interface suddenly stops making much sense. However, not being able to maximize/zoom a window without it going behind the palettes, tools and toolbars (like in CS apps), could become a bit of a bummer. I am aware that many of the UI issues suffered by CS apps (ID CS6, I'm looking at ya!) come from badly implemented dockable palettes and its interactions with subsequent OS X versions and their functions (namely, Spaces), but… Are you taking that risk and thinking about it? It's just that I can't seem to find any specific mention to palettes and Separated Mode minutia in your roadmap. Oh, by the way… I know this is becoming a running theme, but… As much I enjoy at least being able to “window-shade” floating palettes into an horizontal strip, that is a bit '90s-ish. Adobe really nailed it with the iconized palettes in vertical, collapsed strips. That, alone, and the ability to dock them left *and* right (as you can see on the enclosed screenshots from Ai and ID), is a massive space saver. Are you planning anything along those lines?
