  1. Hi, I was testing out the Node Tool Selection Lasso. With Node Tool selected, Alt-Drag around the intended nodes to select on your open shape. Sometimes the lasso will select nodes not within the lasso boundaries. Seems to happen when starting a lasso and it is ambiguous as to which "side" the selection is going to be. I uploaded a screenshot of the entire shape I was playing with. Admittedly one would probably not be using a shape like this for anything, but worth noting how it affects the lasso selection. The two screen grab videos show the irregular behaviour. 2019-03-12_08-12-28.mp4 2019-03-12_08-17-17.mp4
  2. I have a problem with the freehand selection tool (lasso tool). When I have selected a certain area and release the mouse button, my cursor suddenly has the "hand" shape, instead of the "cross" shape. So I cannot proceed in adding (by pressing CTR) more areas to my selection. When I restart Affinity and press the freehand selection tool, the "cross" cursor is back. But after a few minutes the problem starts again. What I also found was that when, after releasing the mousebutton and losing the possibility of adding a selection (because the handtool popped up), I went back to the tool bar and pressed the selection button that contains five tools, one of which is the freehand selection tool. Subsequently I chose the rectangular marquee tool and all of a sudden the "hand" cursor was back. And I was able to add to my selection. When I tried to go back to the freehand selection tool, the "hand" popped up again and I couldn't add anything anymore. I hope I made a shamefull mistake. Otherwise this is a crucial bug. Could you please help me?
  3. When I buy vector clip art with a commercial license it usually comes in the form of an eps file. Usually all the designs are on one "page". I am finding it very time consuming and hair pulling to isolate what I want from that. I can't "draw a box" around it because it selects everything (the whole "page"). Say I bought 20 cats. They are all on one main layer and I want only one cat. Sometimes I can click on something in the layers panel and when that itty bitty dot is selected I can then click on the cat I want and get one itty bitty little dot in the right cat to be highlighted. From there I can "show in layers". Then I have to hold down the shift key and randomly select a bunch of layers (we are talking so many I have to scroll a lot in the layers panel) and hope I got all the cat. Often I don't and then I have to go through the whole mess again. (Yes, I am smart enough to first group what I found that was correct and then label it so I can find that part again). And more maddenly, the entire cat may not be on sequential layers. But my question is, why can't I surround that cat and have it be selected. Even at the highest magnification I can not directly select on the image - it will select the whole page. Why can't I zoom in until just that cat is showing and then click on it to select just a piece of it? Like what someone here told me to do when I couldn't seem to select just one node to move (it was just moving the handles until I zoomed in a ridiculous amount so I could isolate the node itself)
  4. Hi is there a lasso selection option in AFdesigner to select the shapes we want to include within a selection?
  5. Hi is there a lasso selection option in designer to select the shapes we want to include within a selection?
  6. While using a polygonal or magnetic lasso tool for detailed selection, the View Tool shortcut (space) doesn't work. If space is held, the image can be moved as normal but the selection (ants) will no longer be visible until space is released. Space + Ctrl doesn't work at all, i.e. zooming in and out while the selection is unfinished is impossible.
  7. When creating selections using the lasso tool, I find it useful to undo or backtrack my selection path by hitting the Delete key as many times as necessary. Might be a small feature but I think it's handy.
  8. Hi, Do we have any option to select strokes and shapes using a freehand selection tool in Affinity Designer? When there are multiples strokes drawn near by and you want to select only a few you want to do it with a freehand selection method . but right the only option of selection (arrow tool) seems to select everything in rectangular selection when you drag the tool. Using shift select each stroke can be very tedious if you are working with a lot of strokes/shapes. Please let me know if I am missing something. thanks
  9. 1. Lasso issues-unable to add a selection from inside a marching ant selection. 2. Should add feathering option in the the pen tool's prior to concerting a path in a selection. 3. Pen tools seems to disconnect from the main path when plotting narrow intervals.
  10. Im using affinity designer and I can't figure out where the eraser tool is. I have an image pasted on one of my layers and I want to be able to erase a portion of the image. also, In photoshop you can use a free form lasso to select part of an area and then delete it. I cant figure out how to do that in Affinity designer.
  11. I have been using AD & AP for one year now, most of my work is in graphic design and food photography, which I use AP to cut around an image, the choices are either the lasso tool or brush tool; I'm used to the pen tool being an illustrator user for 20 some years. Most tutorial videos utilize the brush tool combined with the refining method, I was wondering is it possible to convert the marching lines in the Freehand Lasso tool to vector lines, this will be really ideal to fix certain spots. And would like to hear other opinions what is the best method to cut around in a photo, I'm sure Freehand Lasso tool in AD in the pixel persona will do the same as AP, lasso tool. Thanks.
  12. It would be good to be able to feather a selection to a higher value than than the 200px slider offers. (you seem to be able to manually use a value of 400px) However there are lots of situations when (especially with very high resolution images) 200px is not any where near enough. Best wishes Jonathan Charles (a man who badly wants to ditch adobe photoshop)
  13. Is there any tool that is similar to the lasso tool in Photoshop? Thanks.
