After using PS for more than a decade, I think I do much prefer Affinity Photo. The inpainting brush tool is tremendously powerful. However one thing that keeps on popping up with this program, and something that is incredibly frustrating, is that tools will not remember the last settings. I've seen that this a common issue that's been reported for years but not sure why it still hasn't been addressed? It would be a rather simple fix where the tools just write out the last settings used to xml files I would've thought. It's a very frustrating process to mentally keep a track of the settings and continually set them up. I've lost how many times I'm painting away wondering why the infill didn't work only to realise it's reverted back to "current layer". Apart from smart objects and linking that's in Photoshop, this is a very solid product - thanks and keep up the good work!
I suggest the implementation of "INERTIA" settings in both "Affinity DESIGNER"(especially) and "Affinity PHOTO";Alike you can change the behavior of tools in Artrage. so your curves etc. smooth out while you draw. Just like you would apply more pressure to the tool, which would normally have the effect in reality of not being able to move so fast. (Would be much easier to draw specific curves...(sry4myenglish)
As I suggested in this thread, currently tool settings are remembered only on a per-document basis. For some tools, some people like to use different settings than the defaults (such as the Healing Brush layer sampling options in my case). This means that with the current implementation, I need to change those types of settings every time I create a new document and use a particular tool for the first time. This is obviously not ideal. I see two possible solutions to improve the workflow: 1) Add a "Make Default" button (and possibly also "Reset Settings to Default") to the tool options bar 2) Add a preference "Remember tool settings across documents" Should you choose to do both, you would obviously only need to show the button(s) if the preference setting is turned off.
