  1. I have problems with mouse sensitivity all the time: I want only select an element but I usually move (transform) this element uninentionally by some tiny distance as well. I must check the history every time and often go back and select the element again very very carefully. Is it possible to add the setttings of mouse sensitivity (probably in a form of a treshold) for moving elements? I don't remember when this beahviour occured at first (but I think with 1.7) but I remember that I didn't have this problem ~6 months ago and earlier. I use latest Windows with latest mouse drivers. I tried more mouses and the behaviour is the same. My settings of mouse sensitivity in Windows is pretty low, so definitely it is not a problem of over-sensitive settings in Windows.
  2. I know you have the History Tree option but I would love to see a Snapshot button which would be clicked on to store your publication at that point. Each time the button is clicked then a new Snapshot icon would appear in the title bar somewhere and you could simply jump between these or delete them as and when you wish. This would allow pages to be experimented on and simply put back to a set point as required. If this is not possible, how about a Snapshot Button that inserts a Snapshot Icon in the History Tree which did the same thing? I really don't like the short cut options that pop up when you click the Right Mouse Button as they never appear to change. I would love to see the contents change dependent on the screen object selected. So when a picture is clicked on you have options such as align, replace image etc right there, rather than have to keep moving up to the title bar; Or can we have the option to customise this menu drop down please? As you work on a design I can't see an option to review it as it would look when published. Is there one? as it would be nice if it appeared as a pdf document so you could view your progress. When you drag images etc off the page they can't be seen, even when the clipping option is turned off, so you can't store assets off the edge of the page which is very strange and really unhelpful when you are playing around with object positioning on the page. When you select a page would it not be possible to place a thumbnail of each asset on that page in a side bar where they can be selected without clicking on them on the page? I say this because it is so easy to move objects out of position when you are simply want to highlight them. Locking them in position isn't really the answer when you still need to move them around. An assets menu bar would also allow objects to be dragged out onto the page as a copy, or dropped into another box to replace the contents. Highlighting text in a text box is a very hit and miss affair and quite often the text box is dragged out of position. Could an option be added so that you hold the LMB down for a second or so and you automatically go into text edit mode? This is a big program so apologies if somethings there already which I may not have found yet. I really like this software, and because of the price it will be a must buy when its released. Keep up the great work.
  3. (This is a little bit off-topic - but still relevant - so I didn't know which area to put it in.) I'm looking to upgrade some of my accessories and am thinking of buying a LOGITECH G402 Hyperion Fury mouse. https://www.logitechg.com/en-gb/product/g402-hyperion-fury-fps-gaming-mouse It's got a decent amount of programmable buttons and DPI switching which I thought might come in handy in certain situations but I was wondering if anyone has used one with AD and how they got on with it. Does it work well with AD? And what's it like to use in general? Also, can you tilt the mouse wheel left and right (so I can use that for a pan function)? Or, has anyone used the LOGITECH G502 Proteus Spectrum with AD and do they work well together? https://www.logitechg.com/en-gb/product/g502-proteus-spectrum-rgb-gaming-mouse It looks a bit too fancy but if it's so much better than everything else then it could be an option. Or, does anyone have any better mouse suggestions? (It has to be a "normal" mouse for me, no trackballs or weird stuff, but wired or wireless is irrelevant. And I'm on WIndows, it doesn't need to be Mac compatible.) Basically I want to buy a mouse that's good for what I need for the next couple of years at least, so I would like to make a good choice.

    Hi Affinity forum I made my first entry to a Threadless challenge and of course i used Affinity Designer, so I thought i would post it here. Found the sentence in my old sketchbook along with some other weird stuff about animals doing questionable policework... so thought I would give it a go. If you like the design and have a Threadless account, feel free to vote. https://www.threadless.com/designs/cheese-21?utm_source=notification&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=Design-Approved God day to all of you and GOOO Affinity Designer for iPad!!
  5. In the "Live Diffuse Glow" setup dialog the Opacity slider is not handling the mouse events correctly. While I slide it, or as soon as i release it, the slider returns to 100%. Picture retains the effect, but the slider is in wrong position. All other sliders work as expected. Here is a screen capture video of the problem: LDG.mp4 (820 KB) BTW. This is on 64bit Win7 Pro, SP1. running on i7-6700K @ 4GHz with 32GB ram Thx Robert
  6. Hola, quiero saber si es posible actualmente simular la presión del pincel utilizando el mouse, es decir, que al realizar un trazo rápido con el mouse me simule la presión en el pincel como si utilizara una tablet wacom. Se que con la herramienta de pluma luego de realizar un trazo en los ajustes de trazo puedo modificar su grosor y simular presión, pero con pinceles no puedo hacerlo y la verdad me gustaría simular esta presión utilizando mi mouse. Gracias.
  7. Hi, I currently work on a few project where I have to rotate the canvas a lot. It works fine with the 15° rotation in APh, using a custom keyboard shortcut. I use a wheel-mouse for my work and I'm someone who try to keep the right hand on the mouse for efficient workflow as long as possible. So my question now, is it possible to add a custom shortcut like Alt + Mouse Wheel for rotation? Or should I move this to the Feature Request section ? Thanks!
  8. Hi.. I would like to AP have feature to select overlapped layer like photoshop. but, not same with PS. here are my idea. 1. select with command + right cursor click calls layer name. just select wanted layer to select. this is traditional usage like PS / pic-1 2. each layer field have option. when check right arrow, these layers being temporary selected group. this selected layers can be isolated with "hide unselected layers" which need to add to Layer's sub menu /pic-2 how about this?
  9. Hi Affinity team, I would like to request the ability to toggle the direction of the mouse zoom. Currently, the system for AD/AF is inverted compared to the rest of Mac OS. That is, I hold Alt + drag-finger-toward-me on the magic mouse to zoom in, and the reverse for zooming out. I would like the option (perhaps a checkbox in settings) to be able to match the Mac OS system; thus, when toggled on, I would hold Alt + push-finger-away-from-me on the magic mouse to zoom in, and the reverse to zoom out. This would match things like the system zoom and other applications (such as Sketch). Keep up the great work. Cheers!
  10. when working with an image editing software I very often use tools with an adjustable tool size (brushes, pencils, eraser, clonig tool, ....). And I very often adjust their tool size while working with it. In affinity photo it is mostly very akward to adjust these tool sizes: You have to click on the pixel size field, you have to blindly adjust the size by ruler (you do not see the resulting actual tool size) and you have to click again to confirm this resizing. Only now you see the resulting new tool size. If it is not correct, you have to redo all over again. It would be much nicer if we could do all resizing for any tool by just right clicking the mouse button together with the ALt-key and dragging the mouse according the new size, which is cocurrently being shown while dragging.
  11. So I have a gamer mouse that has 2 side buttons (buttons 4 and 5) and i am wanting to bind one of those buttons to the Toggle Fix Context (default X) but when I try to click those buttons while in the shortcut menu, it doesn't record the mouse click. What would i need to do to get this to toggle with the side mouse buttons?
  12. Affinity Photo help documents that one can change the brush size (exactly as in photoshop) by moving the mouse left/right while pressing the Alt-key and the right mouse button. In the current windows version this seems not yet to be implemented (similar to the up/down adjustment). Is this feature in the pipeline?
  13. It would be great, when Affinity Photo would work with 3d connection space mouse. At least zooming and changing the of a size of a pen. I'd like to use it with my old wacom tablet. Pen in one hand and simple zooming and navigating with 3d mouse would be perfect. Thank you!
  14. Winter Snow Scene. Made in Affinity Photo. 7 image composite.
  15. When zoomed in on a photo and I click and drag the image the image moves with the mouse. That is, if I drag the mouse the the left the image moves to the left. Let's say there is an object in an image and I want that object to be in the center of my screen then I simply click on the object in the image and drag the object to the center of the screen. This is good. This is the expected behaviour. However, when editing in an Equirectangular Projection (Live Projection) when I drag the mouse to the left the image goes to the right. If I drag up the object goes down. So if there is a object I want to center on my screen if I drag the object to the center the object actually goes the opposite direction. So some people might like this opposite direction behaviour and that's their choice. I would like it that I can select which direction the image moves when I click and drag the image when editing an Equirectangular Projection. Basically I want the click and drag to work just like normal. Click and drag an object upwards moves object upwards. This could be a selection under preferences > User Interface > Equirectangular Projection Reverse Mouse Direction OR use a modifier key such as alt or option. Thanks millions if you can make this happen. AffinityPhotoEquirectangular.mp4

    mouse scroll wheel bug

    When using non apple mouse, scroll up by one unit for the scroll wheel increase the value by 1; scroll down by one unit for the scroll wheel also increase the value by 1 (expected result is decrease the value by 1.) The old version behaviour was normal but this is discovered in the new version. Thanks!
  17. Please add: - Copy FX - Paste FX - Merge selected layers
  18. I'm a brand new potential user who's currently trialling Affinity Photo. I like a lot of what I see, but have two key features I am looking for. I've done some online research, but cannot find clear answers. Is there any way to have a layer mask displayed as an overlay (e.g. semi-transparent red). I know I can use the quick mask feature, but would love to be able to just paint directly onto a blank layer mask and then check for missed patches using a red overlay. Can this be done? I have seen some references to brush size and hardness being adjustable using CTRL+ALT and then dragging the mouse, but I can't replicate this with either left click (goes to colour picker) or right click (does nothing). I know I can adjust the brush size with [ and ], but really like the size and hardness adjustment to be in the same motion. Is this possible? I'm really hoping to move from Photoshop to Affinity Photo, but would need to find a good workaround for the above to not have it significantly affect my efficiency.
  19. I don't have an Apple Magic Mouse or track pad, so I have to pan the view port by keeping the space bar pressed and clicking + dragging the document's content around using a regular mouse. This works fine when a document is freshly opened and nothing has been changed, yet. However, once you add a new object things change to the following behavior: when the mouse cursor gets near any window border of the edited document some automatic panning kicks in that quickly moves the view port to the exact opposite direction. Since I use Affinity Designer in separated window mode this happens very often.
  20. Hi does anyone have any idea how to stop (or disable) the document (canvas) from moving around. It can be a bit annoying when you slightly touch the mouse and it would cause the document to move. This issue also happen when click and hold the mouse to select objects in the document, but when you release it to confirm your selection, the document would sometime jump a little bit. May I request for the next update to allow users to disable the document from moving around? :)
  21. If you hit the pulldown switch of the rubber size, you need to be quit left of the downarrow-sign. If you are more than the middle on the right, the pulldown size select closes immediately. If you reach the borders at the right and at the bottom of a picture by using the rubber, the rubbercircle disappears behind the border of the picture and become an arrow, but if you try to touch the scrollarea, the rubbercircle appears again. Best Regards
  22. Hey Affinity team, First and foremost, congrats on the great gig at the WWDC17!! Now, I have searched for this feature... ok only for like 20 min. however I couldn't find anything that would indicate that this already exists or is planed to be introduced. If it does, a hint would be great and I'll go back to my box ;-). I can also imagine that it will be all the way on the bottom of your list but here it goes, my first request or better wish :-). I would really like to be able to zoom to where the mouse is. This is available through ought the entire macOS workflow that you can, at least with the Magic Mouse, just double tap on an item and you zoom mouse centred. This is a fantastic feature when you zoom out to be going over your work and find something here and there you would like to adjust. So: Working close on a detail -> double tap -> zoomed out to some previous % -> go with the mouse on an item you identified to be edited further -> double tap -> zoomed in again. I understand that the zoom level might be to high or low but at least you are within the vicinity of where you want to go as of currently you just zoom in to the last selected spot or some random place of the canvas. This is at least my experience. Again if this exists in some way I am happy to learn :-). Cheers, JMS
  23. Hello, I'm a freelance concept artist, matte-painter and illustrator and have been living with an orphaned copy of Photoshop CS5 that I purchased many years ago. As my business depends heavily upon this software and I do not, under any circumstances wish to migrate to Adobe's Creative Cloud subscription service (a preference to purchase and own outright, the fact that a subscription model is costlier over time and Adobe's monopolistic price gouging practices) I've been seeking an alternative. Affinity Photo may just be that replacement which I can run concurrently with CS5 and over time, replace it altogether. Also, the market is in desperate need of comparable and competitive alternatives to Adobe's suite. I'm very impressed with what I've experienced thus far after downloading the trial and with a new computer system (Win 10 Pro) arriving next week I intend to purchase it and most likely Designer. There are a few things that I would like to see that would help with workflow tremendously. Bear with me as I'm still coming to grips with Affinity Photo. I would like to see it possible for the palettes to be collapsible into docked icons as is possible with Photoshop. I would like to see the right mouse button have contextual functionality depending on the tool selected - for example, the possibility to 'Deselect' or Invert Selection' et al when you right click on a selection. it feels constraining and retards workflow not be have a contextual right mouse button option I would like to see it possible to make the horizontal toolbar more customisable - adding a drop-down brush editing palette for example. That's about it for now. However, i will be purchasing and joining the Affinity family. Thanks for creating such a quality product that is getting very close to rivalling Photoshop, and for offering it at such as competitive price. .Grant
  24. Some editors has a nice feature that uses mouse cursor detection. It allows user to move mouse above the image while adjusting the effect (like curves, HSL etc) and mouse On or Off will flip between "Before" and "After". Having a this feature, it would be nice to be able to have a mouse cursor above the adjustment dialog (like HSL) for adjusting and the preview would be shown like now. But when you would move mouse away from dialog to top of the image then it would turn to "before". So you could quickly move mouse above dialog and image to see it switching between to help evaluate the adjustment change.
  25. Hi folks. I can use the pen tool now, after the bezier game! I thought I'd put my copy of AD to proper use, illustrating that is, not just page layout mode. All this despite 'losing' a borrowed drive for a Tevion tablet. Never mind being unable to find my Epson scanner power supply...any way this is for you the AD community, the AD Team at Serif labs (And the Drawplus team for getting me hooked on DrawPlus in the 1st place). A big thank you goes out to you CartoonMike and that awe inspiring tutorial earlier: for pushing me over the edge and well into the abyss of time, know as creativity mode. It's so good seeing images in my head finally landing on paper/screen. I can now concentrate now :P peter Ps A brief intro of the picture. Family Guy did 3 Star Wars films as you know and they are better than the original. So why not do Airwolf in the same vein? The main villain Dr Charles Henry Moffet was the creator and thief of Airwolf. He was a tortured evil genius who had an upper class English accent...sound familiar anybody. I would love this to go viral (Dream on. Ed) and maybe to Seth McFarlane et al :ph34r: The cast would be Chris Griffin - Stringfellow Hawke Peter Griffin - Dominic Santini Stewie Griffin - Dr Charles Henry Moffet Carter Pewtersmidt - Archangel Joe - The Senator Joes's Wife - Marriella Glen Quagmire - Test pilot, Moffet's team there's more to follow :) ​Why "She's a lady", well in the program Dom , the hopeless romantic dotes on that machine...and the song by Tom Jones makes it funny too.
