  1. I want to rotate a photo in Affinity Photo or in Affinity Deisgner but I seemingly can't rotate a mathematical amount. I can use the Straighten tool, but that is not what I what, I want to be able to say, "hey, this image can rotate clockwise by 5degrees" . I can see the rotate links for 90degree rotations but that's obviously not the same. The straighten tool is very imprecise as it relies on eye rather than any mathematical int or float value (such as 5.75 degrees) Have I missed something obvious? :-/ Cheers Martin
  2. Is there any way to enable canvas rotation with hand gestures on the touch screen? For instance, in Photoshop, you can place two fingers on the screen and rotate them, and the canvas will rotate in that direction. I can't seem to find any setting to enable it and its very frustrating not being able to shift my canvas around freely when I'm drawing. I end up just turning my whole tablet around, which is very inconvenient.
  3. It's easier to operate on small values, also there will be no need to do math (yay) So let say I want to rotate object clockwise by 67 degrees. That's easy - just enter 67. But when rotating counterclockwise things starts to look more complicated. I must calculate 360-67 to know it's 297... damn 293. See? What about just entering -67, and moving on? (maybe I mixed directions, but general idea still holds up)
  4. Can I request a rotation option for the fill windows gradient tab. at the moment you can only apply a right to left or visa-versa gradient from there, to rotate the gradient you then have to go to the fill tool, not intuitive at all.
  5. Hello, how can I forget / reset the rotation of an object? Once the object is rotated it remembers it's original 0° rotation, which is mostly useful. E.g. if i rotate a shape in Publisher > convert to Picture Frame > Place an Image … the placed image is also rotated. Is there any way to rotate an object and afterwards reset it's rotation to 0°. Thank you in advance!
  6. When rotating the canvas (View - Rotate Left/Right) the artwork previews/appears pixelated and distorted on the artboard - almost like the strokes and objects get fuzzy outlines. I'm not sure if it's a bug, but its been present since the day I started using Designer and Photo - even vector shapes get jagged edge previews when the canvas is rotated. I've attached a preview to show what I mean (you may need to zoom in to have a better look), but I'm sure anyone who has used the canvas rotation feature is aware of this. Is there a way to fix this? Any help would be appreciated.
  7. I have an urgent need to create a ring, where along the ring there are 'tick marks' like degrees on a compass, however, due to the nature of the project, I need to be very specific about where these 'ticks' lie around the circle, such that some need to be at a decimal precision of about 8 places. As far as I can tell, Designer only supports rotation precision to 1 decimal place. Is there an option or away to increase this to at the very least 4?
  8. I'm making a clock face. I set the guides to the dead centre, and I draw a 'tick' mark centrally using the guides. It's placed evenly over the vertical guide at 12 o'clock or 0/360 degrees around the clock face, then set the rotation anchor to the dead centre of the page using the guides. I duplicate that layer, and translate it using keyboard entry to exactly 5 or 10 degrees (depending on the tick mark I need). I press CMD+J to duplicate layer and transformation and populate the outside of the clock face. NOTICE: The rotation text field only allows single decimal places; this is functionally unusable, because in many cases we need multiple decimal place precision, and in fact if you manually rotate a layer you see displayed 2 decimal places, yet you can't manually set that in the text field. At least 4 is required, preferably 8 decimal places. Continuing with the bug description: I do the same for the 5 degree marks until the clock face is populated with marks at 5 degree and 10 degree points all around. To verify the correctness of these 'tick marks' I draw a long (extending past outer edge of clock face) 2 pixel wide line from the centre and rotate it so an random 'degree' that is a multiple of 5. e.g. 135. Then I see how it lays along the computed 'tick' marks. BUG: NOTICE that the tick mark at 135 isn't placed correctly, in fact none are except 0 degrees, 90, 180 and 270. All others are off by small amounts from those cardinal points up to the greatest amount of imperfection at the points directly between the cardinal points. If you MANUALLY drag the pink line you'll see that you still can't set it perfectly (due to poor 2 decimal place precision) but the black 135 tick mark is somewhere between 134 and 135, This level of precision isn't enough for my work. Suggestion: Please fix immediately the rounding / precision bug when doing rotations, and increase the decimal place precision on dragging AND by text entry to at least 4 decimal places, but preferably up to 8 decimal places. Current implementation is too inaccurate to use. Designer_Errors in rotating paths (lack of precision).afdesign
  9. Suggestion for a very small, but very useful feature/shortcut option for 1.7. I, as well as a vast majority of illustrators, designers and photo editors I know and work with, constantly rotate the canvas while working. This is not a 90 degree rotation, but rather just a standard rotation while working (exactly like the View - Rotate Left/Right/Reset options). Assigning this to custom shortcut keys helps speed things up (I currently have Rotate Left and Right assigned to Q and W in Designer), but it's still slow in comparison to Photoshop's dedicated rotation tool. With Affinity I'm left pressing my custom defined rotation shortcuts multiple times to get the perfect angle for the work I'm doing. With that in mind, I don't think it's necessary to add a dedicated rotation tool like Adobe PS has, but rather just a key combination shortcut. When you hold Ctrl+Alt and click and drag in Affinity this changes your brush size and hardness, which is incredibly quick, efficient, and useful. Could there not be a similar option (say Alt+Cmd+click and drag, or Ctrl+Cmd+click and drag) to rotate the canvas working angle? Either that, or a pop-up menu (similar to Sketchbook Pro) where when you move the canvas using the move tool (Spacebar) you also have the option to rotate the canvas. I've also seen this used in software like Krita, where holding modifier keys + dragging allows you to rotate the canvas. It's a non invasive way of still giving the option to those who use it, but keeping it out of the way for those who don't. You could possible also include the option to enable/disable the pop-up menu in the Preferences for those who don't like to use it or find it distracting. I think this would be an incredibly invaluable feature, particularly for artists/illustrators who rotate the canvas to draw using a tablet, but also useful for designers and photo editing.
  10. Hi all I quite happy with how I go about setting the pivot point on a shape in Affinity Designer. However, when I export the design to SVG, I want the pivot points to be saved as part of the shape as well. My aim is to rotate items using Javascript in the browser and I need that point, to pivot around (imagine a rectangle for a clock hand or something similar). Is this something I can do in Affinity Designer as part of exporting the shapes? Thanks
  11. Please see attached file.The rotation snap (drag while holding shift) is erroneous. I created a right-angled triangle (red in the attached file) with the catheter lenghts 1 and 2 respectively. This gives offcourse 30 degree [sin (1/2)] angle in the top of the triangle. But, if I rotate some thing (blue rectangle in the attached file) while holding down shift key (i.e. two 15 degree snaps) the angle is about 33.5 degrees and not 30 degrees. This is a major bug that needs to be resolved quickly. I have the latest designer version, running windows 10. This bug is propably also present in the photo (and upcoming Publisher) versions? /Mattias Affinity-bug.afdesign
  12. Hi all, I noticed that the brush rotation is limited to 50% in the slider, but you can write up to 100% in the input field, I think the slider should allowed to drag it until 100% as well. Is this intended? Cheers, Juan
  13. Windows 10 Home 1809, Designer 1.7.0.209 You can watch the attached GIF for a demonstration, where a document containing four rectangles - the same rectangle rotated by three angles - and four images - each rotated by the same three angles - is itself rotated by three angles. (The angles of rotation are snapped at 15 degrees). At the start, before document rotation, all of the rectangles and images look fine. After the first rotation the rectangles are very jaggy and the images have become very pixelated. After the third rotation, even though the first rectangle has been rotated to essentially the same orientation as the fourth (before rotation), it still have a very noisy outline while the fourth rectangle looks fine. Zooming in/out doesn't seem to make much difference.
  14. Hi - I am new to Affinity photo. I tried rotating an image of a window in crop mode. As you can see from the screen capture - it makes the bars all choppy. The original is a good sized file and does not look choppy. When I export - it looks OK. Is there any way to fix this? It makes it hard to edit a photo like this. I'm running on Windows 10. I don't have this issue with other applications. Thanks
  15. I don't even know the right way to talk about this, so it's likely this is possible and I just can't find it. When I open a doc in AfPub, in the lower right corner there's a minitab labeled "Transform" -- this is distinct from the Layer -> Transform menu item; here I can just set the item's control point, X and Y Location (x and y), Width, Height, Rotation, and Skew for the selected item(s). Is there a keyboard shortcut (or way to make one) to alter these or put the focus in one of these boxes? Related, and again I don't know what to call it, but if the current selection is, say, a polygon, there's a bar of configuration options running just above the document. It has, e.g., the name of the shape, the fill, stroke, number of sides, etc. What is that called, and how do I get focus there without using the mouse? Thanks!

    Tilt and Angle Control

    I've been trying to recreate a simple pencil brush which would utilize the Apple Pencil. I got everything already set up: based on a round brush made a nice repetitive high contrast rough paper texture for the brush texture (works wonderfully) stylus tilt controlling: the diameter of the brush (having it orthogonal to the screen produces a sharp trace, whereas tilting it makes the diameter bigger at a certain threshold) shape (following the same curve as the brush diameter; when non-tilted, it produces a nice round shape, tilting the pen produces a narrow/elliptical trace, again, when it goes over a certain threshold) stylus angle controlling: brush rotation (when the stylus is tilted and as it produces a narrower trace, it should rotate with the angle of the stylus) stylus pressure controlling: the hardness of the brush (if you're shading, pressing it gently will produce a nice subtle narrow trace; as you press it harder, the trace becomes more pronounced) Now, the problem I've been having is that Affinity Photo for iPad is interpreting the stylus input controls differently than expected. Let's go over the tilt control first. How the tilt control should work: having the stylus orthogonal to the screen should read value = 0% tilting the stylus down in any direction (any angle) should increase value > 0% having the stylus almost parallel to the screen should read value = 100% How the tilt control works now: having the stylus orthogonal to the screen reads value = 50% tilting the stylus down to bottom part of the screen (parallel to it) reads value = 100% tilting the stylus to the left or right part of the screen (parallel to it) reads value = 50% tilting the stylus to the top part of the screen (parallel to it) reads value = 100% Now let's go over the angle control of the stylus. How the angle control should work (controlling the rotation which I think goes from 0-50%?): having the stylus tilted to the right part of the screen should read value = 0% (which is 0°) having the stylus tilted to the bottom part of the screen should read value = 12.5% (which is 90°) having the stylus tilted to the left part of the screen should read value = 25% (which is 180°) having the stylus tilted to the top part of the screen should read value = 37.5% (which is 270°) The way how the angle is read in the current implementation is hard to describe, I'll try to make a video or an output it produces. But it definitely doesn't map the degrees of direction the stylus is tilted to the brush rotation.
  17. So you've just rotated your image and now have four nice transparent triangles in the corners. So what do you do? Here's a way of handling it: Select/Alpha Range/Select Fully Transparent Select/Grow/Shrink... (Radius 1px) Edit/Inpaint This should select the corners and give AP the opportunity to apply its Inpainting algorithm. At best it's a perfect fix. At worst, it's a start and you can clone bits that are not inpainted so well. You do need to do the Grow, by the way, as without it you can get missed pixels and an inpaint that is not fully opaque (I think these are bugs and have reported them - until the fix, you need the Grow).
  18. Ehy guys, yesterday I needed and probably will need in the future the ability to rotate RAW images in develop persona since Windows itself isn't able to do it. Rotating via the crop tool context toolbar is very difficult so it'd be nice to have the facility I've written above.

    Clone Tool Rotated 90°

    Here is an awful old problem that reoccurs on some photos: I can't figure out which. When using the clone tool with shape set to <100% and some rotation, the actual rotation on the photo changes by 90°. Look at the photo I attach, blow it up so one can see the outline of the cursor. I copied a black object that is to the right of the cursor, (off screen in this copy). The clone target should be at 45°; instead, as you can see on the screen, it is turned to 135°. This problem doesn't happen all the time, might not happen again if the same photo was opened later. I am using a Macbook pro running 10.13.4 running Affinity 1.6.7 .
  20. Hi all, not sure whether I've found a bug or its just me not seeing a simple mistake. duplication issue.afdesign Here's what I do... I create a document 2000px x 2000px I use Guide Manager to place guides at 50% horizontally and vertically. I create a path with a stroke of .25px Align: centre. Stroke size doesn't really matter, as it does not affect the outcome. The path can be placed either vertically, horizontally or restricted to 45º The 45º angle was to get a path length that would not fall short in the document but it doesn't matter really these are just the placements I have tried as starting points. Checked paths rotational node placement was 1000, 1000px I moved the paths rotation centre to the centre of the document (1000,1000px) Initially I wanted to rotate by 5º but noticed as I duplicated the paths the duplicated paths were out of alignment at 90º, 180º and 270º To test I created the path again and duplicated by the restricted 15º by holding shift down as I rotated, this aligned to the 90º, 180º and 270º correctly. So, I tried rotation by 5º again and this confirmed the misalignment. If you continue the duplication the offset is equal and you will end up with consistent bands. Continued duplication by the restricted 15º always keeps alignment I made two groups one coloured black and one coloured pink, the starting path's are both accurately aligned at the vertical point, once you start rotating thats when it all goes wrong. So it really shouldn't be misaligned if 15º can align why can't 5º Pink is the 5º duplication
  21. Hi, I've noticed some lag and image tearing (if that is the term) when an image is rotated. Blocks of the image are rendered on screen in sections, usually more than one. This happens with small, or large resolution images - larger one's are more obvious. Sizes from 1000 pixels upward. My PC is no slouch, Windows 10, Core i5, 8GB, Nvidia Geforce 750ti 2GB. I don't get this issue with Photoshop, or any other image editing software. I've included a screen grab to demonstrate. Usually there are more blocks making up the image as it is rotated. To reproduce. Open an image, deselect the base layers lock and rotate the image manually. Images are totally smooth in Photoshop, ArtRage, Clip Paint Studio, Rebelle when rotated etc. Thanks, Jay.
  22. Started with a photo that was not straight. So rotated it. Then rasterise. Then perspective transformation on verticals. Then very careful selection of sky (including refine and close-up fixes). Note here that selecting move tool seems to indicate two objects, one rotated. Hmm. Then cut-paste of sky to a separate layer. Now the selection has shifted so the the area selected is not what it was. (see edges of cathedral). Also, curiously, the blue lined object box has straightened up. What's up, doc?
  23. Hello I encounter problems exporting a rotated image. While the slice preview looks okay, the exported .jpg is cropped and rotated (as if I never rotated the image) Here are the steps I took: Open a .CR2 with landscape orientation. Rotate the view (not the image) by 90 degrees counter-clockwise in the Develop persona. Develop the raw. Reset the view rotation and rotate the image counter-clockwise in the Photo persona so that it has a portrait orientation. Do some additional cropping. Export using the Export persona. The preview looks right, but the exported image is not: while the file 'canvas' is right, the content of the canvas is back to its original rotation (landscape) and the rest of the canvas is white. Additional issues I encountered when I wanted to circumvent this problem: Ignore the pre-made slice and make a new one. I tried to size and position the slice correctly by using the expressions ph en pw in the height and width fields of the transform panel. But this makes the slice now landscape oriented (while the image itself has a portrait orientation). So being adventurous I used pw in the height field and ph in the width field, thinking that would solve the problem. Turns out the slice has the size of the image before I cropped it. So it looks like the expression values refer to a pre-crop and pre-rotated state of the image. I hope this is of any help!
  24. Hello, Wouldn't it be easier if we could rotate an object using trackpad gesture?. Current implemented feature is rotating view using trackpad gesture. So, to rotate object it could be like; click the object we wanted to rotate, then hold shift and do the rotation gesture accordingly. In addition, you could do the same with object resizing with zoom gesture. Background issue: sometime it's little "annoying" pointing the cursor to the right spot to get rotation control on. To sum up, we all know that Mac's magic trackpad is one thing that make it standout from other hardware interfaces available on the market. And every Mac's user loves it. So why we wouldn't take it to its true potential? Thanks, Regards
  25. Affinity Photo 1.5.2.69 on Windows 7 Service Pack 1 In Raw Development -> "Objektiv" Tab -> Rotation -> fine stepping via Ctrl+Arrow Up stop at -0.7 and can't be continued upwards in fine step mode Reproduce: 1. Open RAW image (I used an image in Olympus ORF Format). 2. In RAW development tool window open objectiv-Tab. 3. In Rotation Num-Edit click arrow down for full step to -1.0° => OK: image is rotated. 4. In Rotation Num-Edit Ctrl-click (fine stepping 0.1) the small arrow up a few times (or hold arrow) => NOK: stepping stops at -0.7°, you can't fine tune upwards beyond -0.7°
