initrc posted a topic in Feedback for Affinity Photo on DesktopThe hint text is only useful to new users. It's a waste of space and distraction to the rest of the users. It'd be great if there's an option to hide it.
The ability to dock panels, toolbars, and the main window toolbar, in Separated Mode just like in the Mac version of Adobe products, Macromedia FreeHand, or older versions of Microsoft Office, would allow for much neater workspace organization. It would also make everything cleaner when placing panels on secondary monitors in Non-Separated Mode. A setting to have these screen-edge docks collapsed and only open up when moving the mouse to the screen edge (just like the OS X Dock with "Hide Dock" activated or the menu/toolbar sliding in on regular OS X applications like Safari in full screen mode) would further improve usability on small screens such as smaller laptops. The ability to arrange documents next to each other in all modes would be very useful. The nicest implementation of this is probably in Microsoft Visual Studio, where it is very easy to arrange documents in a variety of different ways just by dragging the tabs. Adobe products can sort-of do this, but not when using floating windows because it cannot dock two views in one window, it only works when activating their Application Frame. Currently, Affinity Photo has a very useful option "View > New View" that opens up a new document tab for the same document, but this is utterly useless in non-separated mode since there is no way to actually put the two views next to each other to work on detail while looking at the whole document. In separated mode, it would be useful to be able to split the tool options from the main window toolbar so one doesn't have to drag the bulky main window toolbar around with it In separated mode, currently the status bar completely disappears, and in non-separated mode on the other hand, there seems to be no way to hide it The Character/Paragraph buttons in the text tool options bar only show these panels, but they don't open them if they are collapsed. Chances are that a user wants to actually use them, so un-collapsing them would make sense. It might also be confusing if these are already on the screen in collapsed state since it will then appear to the user as if nothing happens when they press the button.
Hi, When executing a Photoshop plugin (.8bf) effect nothing shows if anything is happening or not. Usually image editors supporting Photoshop compatible plugins feature a progress bar of the plugin rendering the image. Even though that bar isn't always showing actual 'count down' (sometimes the progress bar starts over a couple of times, depending on the plugin) but at least it indicates the plugin effect is still being processed. Particularly Filter Forge effects consume considerable rendering time: I can't tell whether Affinity is either still busy or has ignored the rendering task. The circular 'busy' cursor isn't always showing; sometimes it just shows the ordinary arrow cursor. Don't like to depend on the circular 'busy' cursor anyway since it also shows when software has crashed. In short: it would be very helpful if Affinity Photo would feature a plugin progress bar, just like any other image editor does. Roberto
