  1. Hi, every time I plug in my Intuos tablet it's like playing the roulette with the zooming options (Zoom In/out the doc) of the trackpad (Macbook pro) that get disabled. Does anyone knows how to fix this issue? Cheers.
  2. Hi Affinity team, I would like to request the ability to toggle the direction of the mouse zoom. Currently, the system for AD/AF is inverted compared to the rest of Mac OS. That is, I hold Alt + drag-finger-toward-me on the magic mouse to zoom in, and the reverse for zooming out. I would like the option (perhaps a checkbox in settings) to be able to match the Mac OS system; thus, when toggled on, I would hold Alt + push-finger-away-from-me on the magic mouse to zoom in, and the reverse to zoom out. This would match things like the system zoom and other applications (such as Sketch). Keep up the great work. Cheers!
  3. Often (about 75% of the time) when I load in a jpg or png to start with on my project the actual document shows up in only a corner of the "canvas" when really the image is taking up the full space. You can see below how when I zoom in and out at different levels it: - sometimes fill up only part of the canvas area - sometimes fills up whole canvas area - sometimes glitches out with random squares appearing in different areas I'm running MacOS latest 10.13.2 Affinity Photo 1.6.6
  4. Hi, This has been a bug for a good while in Affinity Photo, I was hoping it might be fixed by now, but it's still hanging around. On two different Windows 10 PC, each with different Nvidia graphics card, when you zoom into an image you see what appears to be a transparent edge around the top/side or both. This quite often makes you think that there is in fact a pixel line that hasn't been cropped, when in fact as you zoom in further, you'll see that there isn't anything wrong - the artifact disappears. It's more noticeable on darker images with a dark UI. Thanks, Jay.
  5. Hi, is there a Shortcut like "alt" + "SPACE" for active zoom in/out like in photoshop for Affinity Photo?
  6. Hi guys, Is there a shortcut to ZOOM TO 100%? Other programs have Ctrl+0, is there such a feature in Affinity Designer? Thank you, Chris
  7. I really love this program and so I was trying to dabble in it for the past couple of days. To start off: The Canvas Size: 1080px * 1080px Tablet Used: Wacom Bamboo Operating System: Windows 10 (64 bit) Affinity Photo Version: Immediately, I noticed this weird thing with the brush tool: 1. The brush I selected was a round brush with zero spacing. I noticed there were a couple of strange errors when using the brush tool fast with/without stabilizer: No Stabilizer seems to result in the following jagged lines (Circled below in purple). I am currently using a Wacom tablet and I do not have these issues with any other software. I noticed that drawing faster circles makes these jagged lines appear more frequently as well. I have tried this in multiple zoom settings. I have attached a second image to this post with test drawings (different zoom levels and stabilizer on and off). I also noticed that sometimes the stroke doesn't get detected (for instance when writing the letter 'i' ) 2. Bugs/Issues with the Canvas Zoom: There's a very weird pixelization at certain zoom levels: For comparison, here is zoom 50% and 100 % (Both of these show little to no pixelization) At 50%: Affinity Photo 50% Zoom Level At 100% Affinity Photo 100 % Zoom Level Pixelization/blurriness above 100% is natural. But in between 0-50% and 50%-100% pixelization shouldn't happen: Here's 75%: You'll notice that unlike above, the lines look somewhat zagged at the edges. 75 % Zoom Level Here's 45%: 45 % Zoom Level In these zoom levels, regardless of the size of my brush (ex. 60px vs. 20px), the pixelization exists. In comparison, this pixelization doesn't occur in Photoshop at these low zoom levels: Photoshop Ex 33 % Zoom Level *** I would like to note that when testing these strokes in Affinity Photo, I did not have photoshop or any other application open (in case the stroke issues were caused by the computer being held up) ***
  8. why while zooming vectors looks pixelated?
  9. So I'm on the band wagon seeing as PS has gone subscription based. I have Designer and Photo and was happy, kind of. I noticed the performance was very poor on AP. Zooming in on a WIP layer would take too long to update/refresh. I mean, its maybe half a second but it's enough to kill your thought process and kind of disorientates you. What I noticed was the biggest lagger was gradients. A simple gradient overlaid on to my highest level layer. Any attempt at changing the angle of this gradient would cause it to refresh once every second, maybe jumping 20° each time. Totally unusable and more to the point, frustrating. I'm only running onboard graphics card on my Dell i7, 16GB, 1TB SSD but PS was never a problem. I hit the forums to find out what I could do to get some speed in to AP. I tried it all and none of it worked. Changed the render setting to WARP, no change. Allocated more RAM, no change. I then remembered that my music production software wasn't too keen on SpeedStep being enabled as the processor got confused and jumped about from 20% to 70% whilst using particluar VSTs. Thinking about this, I popped in to my BIOS. Speedstep was turned off (which I left as it was to keep my music software happy) but I had another setting in my BIOS that was switchable.... TurboBoost. I switched this off and rebooted in to windows. Opened up the same file. Placed a gradient layer on top and dragged. NIGHT AND DAY!!! It was like using PS again. Smooth as a babies back side. Zooming in and out causes instant (not literally) refreshes. Scrolling through the Layer blend types is almost invisible as it changes the blending properties real time. The thumbnails on the layers panel update instantly with no lag. I've yet to try other things out that was causing me frustration but thought I'd post this on here in case it hasn't been addressed yet. I noticed that there seems to be problems with the higher end systems running AP so maybe its this Turbo Boost thing on Intel based processors. Anyways. My first post here so, Hello! Hope this may help some frustrated AP users. Turn off TurboBoost in your BIOS and hopefully it'll cure your lagging issues. Also check your DPI scaling in control panel!!! When I'm on 100%, the lagging is terrible. When I change to 150% (Recommended), the lag disappears.
  10. Hello! I’m testing Autodesk Sketchbook with Wacom Intuos Photo Small tablet. I can zoom, rotate and move (in any direction) canvas with two fingers, without take fingers off tablet. It is very comfortable. Can you implement such feature in Affinity Designer / Photo (Windows)? I love Affinity software but I miss comfortable manipulation of canvas. Sławek
  11. Hi all. Thank you for your work on Affinity Designer. When I hold down the "Zoom Out" Hotkey, SPACE + COMMAND + ALT (or SPACE + ALT) it plays an error "beep" sound effect on repeat. Thanks again.
  12. To recreate bug: 1) Create a new document with all the default settings, but set the document width to 1px wide and 1080px high 2) Set the zoom percentage to 100% - the canvas dissappears and cannot be seen 3) zoom to 200% and the image become visiable but is actually displaying at 100% - this can be prooven by pressing 'print screen' key on keyboard, then pasting that as a new image from clipboard, zooming to the captured area and measuring it with a selection which shows it is 1px wide, even though the zoom was set to 200%. I previously reported this bug as it crashed AP 1.5, thanks for fixing the crash, but now please fix the zoom percentage so that the canvas is correctly shown on screen when zoom is set to 100% Thanks for all the hard work on 1.6 though :-) Rob
  13. Is there anyway I can hot key the ability to toggle the zoom tool to "ctrl+space" like it is in photoshop? Same type of hotkey setup as just hitting the space bar to toggle the view tool. Z activates the tool permanently and it dynamically zooms in. I just want to be able to hotkey the toggle. Thanks, - Ken
  14. Hi Affinity. First of all, thank you for your excellent products, I've been waiting for something like this for a long time. I want to bring your attention to one problem that I haven't found mention on this forum and that is zooming with Ctrl + Space when you have Free hand selection tool activated. When I press Space the cursor changes to hand and the pan works, but when I also press Ctrl nothing happens. With every other tool it works as expected.
  15. Hello, Every time I zoom in, out or make an adjustment the image momenterally blurs a little bit and then regains its sharpness. I dont know what this is called. Is this something we can adjust with a setting? Because it seriously strains my eyes. Thank you 2nd gen. IPad pro 12.9 AP 1.6.5
  16. Hi, I often use the left double click for zoom to fit instead of Ctrl + 0, which works fine and it's very handy after zooming in and out, movening the image aroud for detail work to see finally the whole image (all while keeping the hand on the mouse). Unfortunately it works only within the Photo Persona, the Liquify Persona and Export Persona using the Hand Tool. Therefore my feature requests are: 1. Please add this feature as well for the Develop Persona and Tone Mapping Persona 2. Please add this feature as well after switching from other tools to the Hand Tool by using the SPACE key. Which would be then SPACE + left double click. I think this makes the handling more continuous within the app. Thank you very much!
  17. On MS Surface Pro 4, Win10, AP. One finger drag zoom of image works fine, as does two fingered pinch. But then drag with equispaced two fingers and it seems to be doing move (like holding spacebar and finger dragging) -- the surprise comes when you let go, when it suddenly zooms in one jump. I'd guess this will happen on any touchscreen windows machine. What I'd guess is happening is that there's confusion between two-fingered scross and two-fingered pinch zoom. What needs to happen is some decision when you detect two-fingers moving as to whether it's a zoom or a drag by watching the relative direction of both fingers.
  18. While using a polygonal or magnetic lasso tool for detailed selection, the View Tool shortcut (space) doesn't work. If space is held, the image can be moved as normal but the selection (ants) will no longer be visible until space is released. Space + Ctrl doesn't work at all, i.e. zooming in and out while the selection is unfinished is impossible.
  19. Hi, I have problem, that with AP my tablet (Wacom) works the other way round..... while Zooming it Scrolls and while Scrolling it Zooms.... no matter whether using the Touch Wheel or Touch On gestures. Other applications work fine, so the bug should be in the AP (Win), I have checked the settings twice..... Thanks Jindra
  20. Hi, I created an A5 document and pressed Ctrl + 8. I expected that the document is shown in real size on my screen, But it is not. It is shown too big. See the photo attached to this post.
  21. Hi! Just started working with AD and really love it, but I've got a couple of things that don't work so smooth. First of all, I work with a Cintiq 22' touch. I would like to use the zoom slider on the back but it doesn't zoom. How can this be fixed? Undo in AD is different than in photoshop. I would like to change the shortcut to 'alt-command-z', but when I do this it only enters 'z'. How can this be fixed? Many thanks!
  22. Sorry to bother with Fireworks features but this one I happened to use a lot. In AD, zooming in with CTRL/+ currently zooms in on the center of the viewport. Fireworks used to do that when you didn't have anyuthing selected. However, if you selected an element on your viewport and hit CTRL/+ you'd zoom in on the selection until ultimately it's full screen centered (similar to double clicking on a thumbnail in the layers panel). Makes sense since you're working on those and want to watch them closer, not?
  23. When I use the refine (select) tool and want to use the z key to zoom in or out it quits the refine tool and all my selection work is gone...please help this out of the world before the 1.6 release ......
  24. I am using Retouch plugin in Apple Photos. The one bug is that there is no zoom. I have tried every key shortcut but can;t zoom in, basically making the plugin useless. Is this a bug or zoom not implemented? Thanks David
  25. Hey guys! :) Just joined this forum and started using the trial of Photo. I am coming (what a surprise) from Photoshop and really miss a option in Photo to configure which button has to be pressed for zooming in with the scroll wheel. I am really used to using the "ALT" button (Im on Windows btw) in pair with the scroll wheel. The standard seems to be a combination of "CTRL + Scroll". Other than that I am really impressed with Photo. My not-so-powerful notebook flies through the program; this wouldn´t be possible with Photoshop. (My gaming PC on the other hand just doesn´t care if its open and running :lol: ) Awesome work! When there is money to spare I will buy this awesome piece of software B)
