Loving designer so far! Way better UX that illustrator. Anyways, on to the report. When using a wacom tablet, the pan tool becomes sticky sometimes. More specifically, when I release the spacebar and the pen (lift the pen off the tablet) at the same time, the pan tool does not deactivate, and remains active until I hit the spacebar again or change tools. Its super annoying and gets in the way of my workflow. Not sure if anyone else is facing the same issues?
Hi Affinity team, (Sorry when using wrong terms in my post. I use German localization so I have the English terms not at hand.) Since 1.5 we have sticky settings which is basically quite useful but, in my opinion, not the perfect solution. I have certain problems with the current implementation: Some tools share the same setings, e.g., all retouching tools seem to use the same settings which is not always useful. Some tools have no sticky settings, in particular, the crop tool where I really miss it. For example, in the majority of cases I want to crop by preserving the original ratio, but the tool always resets to unrestricted. Also I want to always use shading of the outside of the crop area. (In fact this new feature is so useful that I just want to have it as standard instead of an option.) Different types of images and tasks require different settings. Filter and adjustment layers have no sticky settings at all, which would be quite userful. Altogether I would prefer to have customizable presets instead of sticky settings, ideally with the possibilty to store and load own settings to quickly switch them. I think of settings files that can be edited from the preferences dialog. Also nice would be a button or rightclick option by which I can simply store the current setting of a certain tool. Also for live filter I would like to have a possibility to store multiple presets (like there are already for adjustments). The new macro feature is a bit of replacement, but only a bit since I have to explicitly record macros. Maybe you could think about such an improvement. Thanks, Naqoy
When I export a file to a particular folder, I expect my first export to require me to navigate from the Finder to that folder. However, when I make a small change to the artwork and want to Save it and Export another version, AD always takes me back to the Finder, which makes it a bit of a pain. In practical terms, I think it would be better if the default behaviour when using Save, Save As or Export took you to the last used folder. Maybe you could even have that as a global Preference: Finder OR Last Used Folder. I would be interested in others thoughts... or can I do this but I'm missing something? As an aside: It would also be good if the programme added a filetype suffix, ie pdf, eps, PSD etc. Quite often I have to produce different formats for different purposes and its a bit of a timewaster having to type them in when I Save, so I can sort them in the Finder at distribution time.
