  1. Basically I've installed the daub-concept brush set and would now like to removed them. In the process of trying to removed them myself I've deleted several of the pre-installed brush category's and would like to know if there is away to reset them to default without a full reinstall. I'm currently running Affinity photo on Windows 10. -Thanks

  3. How do I factory reset Affinity Designer on windows?? I pressed the wrong button on my keyboard and my set up was ruined, after trying to reset it to what I had it I still can't get all I want. I would have just dealt with it but it did something weird again. I can't stand it!
  4. Hi, When you drag guides into your document, sometimes you want to reset the origin of the measurements to align it with one guide, or with an intersection. In Photoshop, you do this by dragging from the small square that's at the origin of the rulers, but a similar feature is currently unavailable in Photo. I suggest it should be implemented in the next update, as it is probably quite easy to do. Personally, I use it regularly, for example when I must produce a photo that meets certain size requirements and I want to ascertain what parts of the photo I can include in the required maximum size. I then use guides which I position where I want/need in the frame, and reset the point of origin to see what can be included or not. Many thanks in advance!
  5. Help please I cannot reset my password - I have tried but I do not get an email back from you. I have set up another account using a different email address and that now says the email address or password is wrong when it isn’t so I cannot log onto Affinity on my iMac! I can however log on via this forum - makes no sense. i have upgraded to the recent version and wanted to take you up on the free extras but I’m hitting the above wall. In my opinion the Affinity website is not very user friendly and I find it very frustrating - that said the photo software is great... Pete
  6. In Photo 1.5 I was able to hold ALT and click on a pixel or mask layer to "solo view" it on the canvas. I would press ESC to reset the visibility and reveal all layers again. This no longer works in Photo 1.6.6. I'm still able to solo view a mask or pixel layer, but ESC no longer resets the visibility. Please fix this as this was a key part of my retouching workflow.
  7. I tried to log into my Affinity account, but I forgot the password. When I try to reset it from https://affinity.store/reset-password/ the page tells me that I will receive the instructions in my email, but I have not received any messages related to my password, although I get other messages from Affinity . Could you help me reset my password? Finally, I have created my account again, so the problem is solved. Thank you,
  8. I created a shape (first a circle then I tried a square with same results) then clicked on transform to manually set the size. Once the measurements box opens I lose control of the main panels and am unable to close the measurements box. Had to reset the ipad both times. ipad pro 2017 fully updated ios 11 affinity beta
  9. Since my docs are object intensive (200-350 mgs), I save with the day's date and consecutive letters on each new save for that day (a, b, c, etc.). Using "Save As" reduces the files size. I keep the former docs in the same folder since they sometimes appear to refer back to a previous save. I also quit AD (with the present saved doc still open) to clear its undos (I use 1024 undos) since I reach the limit rather quickly in my editing. This way when I open AD again it usually brings up my doc and desktop just the way I left it However, there are times when opening AD after quitting that AD asks if I want to "Clear" data (that I never want to do). Thus I choose "Cancel" rather than "Clear." I am not sure why this happens but it must be something to do with the previous quitting, although I am careful to follow the same procedure each time. The biggest problem (bug?), however, is that sometimes (although seldom) when opening AD again the program appears to totally forget what to do and comes up as if it is opening AD for the first time (screen asking if I want to close or create a new doc. In this case, there is nothing else to do except start again, choose "Separated Mode" for my panels and then start again to bring up all of my panels the way I had just left them (via Studio). This is a real time-waster and I wonder if somehow AD skips a "cog" and does not know that I have just quit AD and am expecting it to bring up the doc I was just working on when I saved and quit the program. Since this occurs only every week or so there is no way I can repeat it. However, be assured that I am quite careful to follow the same procedure each time. It is a joy to work with AD with my large and complex files (maps with a huge amount of well-organized data/objects). Thanks for all you do to keep improving it. I can live with the above but thought that at last I should mention this. Jim
  10. Hello, I use affinity photo on window for several months now, and I just had a very embarrassing bug, indeed I can no longer add macro in my library. The bug arrived when my affinity photo stopped working while I was exporting a batch image. I restarted my software, tried to reset my preferences, reinstall the software, restarted my pc, but nothing works ... impossible to click here : Do you have an idea for everything reset? Thank !
  11. Hello, every time I re-open a file, the (Painting-) Brush-Size resets to 64 px. Is ist somehow possible to keep the brush-size as it was when closing and re-opening a file? I checked in settings etc but couldnt find anything. Thanks for any help and thanks for this really great alternative to photoshop!!! Stefani
  12. Good morning, afternoon, evening (pick you fav.)! I'm working a —lot— with constraints. It's an incredible time saver. But not always… :( Lets say you've designed a complex element, using a lot of constraints, groups, subgroups, children, etc. All of this is perfectly working with constraints when you resize the element (wider or higher). But now, you need to change it's size for any of the many reasons that could exist. I really mean you have to —scale— up/down everything: texts, shapes, etc. At this moment, you —don't— want any of the constraints to apply. I've not found yet anything that would allow me to do this. Didn't found a shortcut to temporarily deactivate constraints. Didn't found an button to reset/remove —all— constraints of an element and —all— it's children. --> My only workaround (and I hate it), was to duplicate the element, and manually destroy all the work done (delete all groups, children, clips, set everything to one single level), and then apply a default constraint to all. My work is composed of a —huge— amount of elements, and the time lost to do the above is killing me :( Am I missing something? All the best
  13. All in the title, i use constrain quite a lot in my webdesign so that i can resize all the assets i create. But often i need to break things appart to reuse them in other/new assets. And i always need to select all the object from previous assets, to reset all sorts of constrains manually by enabling and desabling all options ta be sure i don't forget one. (because you know what happen if you try to group objects again with contrain on them... Pouf ! vanish! ) So a little reset button could be SOOO great ! Thx ! NB : And maybe a notification/popup message, when you are going to group/ungroup objects that has contrains with one another ? Cheers !
  14. I've moved the toolbars around all over the place, and I would like to get them back to how they were by default.
  15. Dear Affinity Team I have tried to re-download your products which I bought last year. I still have the PayPal receipts, the saved password and login details to your site. But somehow neither my email nor my password are recognized on any of your associated sites (seriflabs, affinity). I tried to reset my password but it would not recognize my email. I am certrain I got the correct login-details because these are auto-saved in my browser, I also remember successfull login in with those details last year. I purchased both, Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer for Windows. Could I get some assistance regarding this? Is there an issue with your account management from 2016? My name is Jessica Helsdon. I re-registered now in hopes of it being a bug but still I do not see my purchases. I canprovide the Paypal receipts. Thanks in advance.
  16. Running 1.5.4. on mac. My interface is in Separated Mode. Selecting Merge all Windows does nothing. I have tried to reset everything by holding Ctrl key while opening app, but that didn't help. BTW, I am running the latest Beta version (just installed). That is working fine.
  17. As the title says, the assets panel is occasionally causing AD to crash; and on reopening the entire workspace has been reset to factory. It's annoying to say the least. Speaking of – I can't seem to find any way to back up my workspace?
  18. yo guys my top bar is gone (the one where you can merge objects together and stuff like that. I tried view>studio>reset but doesnt work. anyone know how I might be able to fix this?
  19. When resetting all the brushes back to their default settings by going to Edit > Preferences > Miscellaneous > Reset Brushes, an error message is displayed saying "Failed to restore brushes to factory settings" even though they appear to reset OK. Screenshot attached. Affinity Photo - 1.5.0.45 Windows 10 - 14393.576
  20. Possibly already mentioned somewhere but how do I reset all tools and or brushes to default?
  21. I've changed the color and alpha in the settings for Grid and Snapping Axis on Affinity Designer for Windows, and I'm unable to reset them back to factory default. Could you please give me the default RGB and Alpha values for the primary and secondary grids? Thanks!
  22. 1) I deleted the category Default form the styles panel. Then selected an object and clicked Add Style from Selection. I am sure that this should have been grayed out, since no category existed in which to add the Style. AD crashed with Object Exception error. Sadly, I have not been able to recreate this issue :( 2) With an object selected I can right click and choose Create Style, but the in the Styles panel menu Add Style from Selection is grayed out - why? Are the two options not the same? If they are the same, then it is confusing that one is called Create and the other Add.
  23. The focus stacking is great: - Question: Can I use New Stack > Live Alignment > focus merge? I can't seem to focus merge a live group. If not then: - Feature request: Live alignment option for focus stack. QoL: Adjustment sliders: - Question: How do you reset an individual slider quickly, rather than the whole panel? - Feature request: Double clicking the slider header (lightroom) or right clicking the up/down arrows on the number entry box (3DSMax) resets the slider/number entry to default. Detail Refinement in the Develop Module: - This is sharpening, right? - Feature request: Unsharp mask/threshold for sharpening. Without this it's mostly useless on any photo that has blurred and sharp areas (dof/panning/etc). QoL: After selecting a menu with drop down options you can't transverse the options in the menu with the up and down arrow keys. Eg. Blend mode drop down menu. The Export Module: I understand the use of slices for advanced users, but most people just want a nice big simple export button. It should probably default to the slices pane rather than the layers pane when entering the export module and the export all slices button might need to be a bit more obvious. Just a few thoughts, feel free to disregard.
  24. Reseting an Affinity app to factory defaults is often suggested as a cure for various problems. While that may work, it is a very destructive step that wipes out all user customizations for keyboard shortcuts, the layout of the Tools palette & the main menu bar, fills, styles, brushes, etc. & returns just about everything to the new user defaults values. Some of these things, for example keyboard shortcuts & Styles categories, can be exported/saved prior to the reset & imported/loaded back into the app afterwards, which can reduce the considerable amount of time & effort sometimes needed to return the app to the previous highly customized state. However, there does not seem to be a comprehensive list of all the things that could be exported or saved for this purpose, or any mention of which (if any) should not be imported or loaded back into the app to reintroduce some problem the reset was meant to cure. For many of them, exporting/importing each category individually would be required since there is no global 'export/import all categories' feature in their menus, so even with a comprehensive checklist this can be a tedious & error prone process. Any guidance on this would be appreciated, as well as if or when less destructive alternatives would suffice. One example of this is I have noticed than on a Mac, some problems can be resolved by trashing the ~/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner/Data/Library/Caches files or the equivalent path for the other Affinity apps (including the betas & possibly for the Photos extensions as well). Note: for anyone wishing to try this, it should be done only while the app is not running. In particular, this seems to resolve unusually long launch times & some other sluggish behaviors, but only when the contents of the Caches subfolders have become large, at least more than 1 or 2 MB.
  25. Hi again, When playing with embedded documents, two things are missing to me (but perhaps I've not found them yet) Let's say my embedded document has a width of 1024px. Once embedded to a parent document, we can decide (quite often) to resize it, and if ever, I'm missing: • An information on the transform panel telling me by how much it has been resized from its original size. (ie. transformed width = 643px --> scale would show somewhere 62,79% • A button + right click menu entry, etc. to instantly scale it back to it's original dimension What do you think?
