  1. I'm having trouble using the selection brush for removing an item from it's background. I'm able to select the area and start refine process. As I go round to clean up the edges I use the hand tool to move around the work surface. It's during this process the hand tool does not switch off and prevents me from continuing with my selection. This has happened too many times for it not to be a bug in the system. It's very frustrating when I'm trying to get with the work, having to log out and back in to start again. Any help or advice appreciated please
  2. In photoshop when applying a curves layer there is a hand tool that allows the user to select a point in the image and that point will be represented on the curve so you can adjust based on a particular area of the photo. Does this function exist in Affinity for iPad? I searched and don’t see in the app that I do anything other then creating points on the curve and adjusting.
  3. It happens to me very frequently that the hand tool [H] remains selected and although I select any other such as move [V], pen [P], text [T] , etc., the hand tool remains active. Even when another tool is visually marked on the panel. The only way out of this situation is to save and close the document and reopen it. It is very difficult to work like this. It happens to someone else? My O.S. is 10.13.6 - Intel Core i7 3,49 GHz - 32 GB 1333 MHz DDR3
  4. I started using Photo So far my issues / comments are: 1) My Canon 77D is now meant to be included in this release yet RAW photos are not visible as thumbnails when I try to 'open' a folder. Am I missing something? This is the main reason I thought I'd try out the beta version. 2) The hand tool used to increase / decrease the image size when twirling the mouse dial, now it moves the image around. Is this a permanent change? 3) Cropping no longer has presets. Do I need to set these up & if so, how? Basic ones like 2:3 & 1:1 would be useful. I haven't done much yet so might add some more comments later. Thanks Julie.
  5. Is there the equivalent of a Hand Tool or possibility of adding it (as there exists in Photo) where one could grab and move the document, instead of using scroll bars? Thank you.
  6. The hand tool can be invoked by pressing H or by pressing and holding down the Space key. If invoked in the latter fashion, the hand tool does not work. (Infinity Designer 1.6.193, Windows 10 Professional 64 Bit)
  7. Hi, I often use the left double click for zoom to fit instead of Ctrl + 0, which works fine and it's very handy after zooming in and out, movening the image aroud for detail work to see finally the whole image (all while keeping the hand on the mouse). Unfortunately it works only within the Photo Persona, the Liquify Persona and Export Persona using the Hand Tool. Therefore my feature requests are: 1. Please add this feature as well for the Develop Persona and Tone Mapping Persona 2. Please add this feature as well after switching from other tools to the Hand Tool by using the SPACE key. Which would be then SPACE + left double click. I think this makes the handling more continuous within the app. Thank you very much!
  8. I'm not sure why but twice in the last 3 days I have had Affinity Designer crash hard on me and bring down my whole system with it. In both cases I was drawing a shape on one layer while using a reference image on the bottom layer. While I was drawing, I pressed the spacebar to access the hand move tool and the program locked up. For some reason I couldn't force quit anything and it locked my screen to only Affinity Designer but it wouldn't allow me to do anything other than move the mouse around (with the hand tool selected). My keyboard was unresponsive and while I could move my mouse around the screen, I couldn't click on anything. I couldn't switch to another program, I couldn't force quit, nothing. I had to hard boot my computer to get it back. Is this a known bug? Is there a known work around? I'm using the latest beta version. As well I'm using Yosemite 10.10.1.
