  1. Hello, Affinity Photo consistently crashes when zooming in. (command +). Very frustrating. Cannot complete my projects. Anyone have similar issues? Help? Running v1.7.3 on macOS. Late 2015 iMac Mojave Thank you.
  2. Tip for image zooming with the pen --- window 10 laptop older Bamboo Just found this one while fiddling around to find a better way than Ctrl + -/+ for zooming Click on the magnifier > drag pen diagonally across the pad and watch the magic How do you enlarge the screen image ? Second tip --- I think we have all reset/deleted our custom tools . Yep ; Ap should have a save button; but for now try taking and saving a screen shot of the tools pallet for reference to how you had the pallet set. Lately; my tools pallet has been changing For those who don't know > View > customize tools --- at the bottom > drag tools off or on and round to suit your needs. I'm still new to the pen and tablet --- mouse left hand and pen right hand. Takes some getting used to
  3. Hey guys, First of all I'd like to say that I think what you are doing is great for the industry! You're really shaking things up and becoming actual competition for Adobe. I became interested in your products during the recent Affinity Live 2019 event. One thing that I've noticed as a strength of yours is that you value your customers opinions and are always trying to innovate and improve your products (I'm blown by Studio Link for example--Adobe should be worried). As a long time Adobe user (specifically Photoshop) I ran into a few roadblocks that have made my transition frustrating or difficult. I wanted to note that so far I've only downloaded and experimented with the trial version of Affinity Photo because I didn't want to spend the money if I couldn't use the program in the way I needed to. I'm a professional Retoucher and Digital Artist, though I'll be focusing on Digital Art for this... Again I do have limited experience with AP so I apologize if I've overlooked something. 1. I saw on your website that one of the perks of Affinity Photo is that it supports the ABR brush format. From what I've experienced through testing is that this is only vaguely true. I imported one of my unreleased brush sets (I'm going to be selling Photoshop brushes soon and would LOVE to also support AP) and almost none of the brushes worked at all. Literally almost none of the properties transferred over. As far as I can tell you don't have a dual brush feature either so some brushes can just never work. Are there any plans to better support the ABR format? A ton more Digital Artists would more easily migrate if this was the case. I think it's perfectly fine if AP offers additional brush features over PS, but I think it's incredibly important to have 1:1 brush performance from existing Photoshop brushes because it would make people like me excited to use your program. Heck, I'd be excited to make advanced brushes on your platform that make use of the sub brush features (that stuff looks amazing). I can't stress enough how much this will stand in the way of a lot of people adopting AP for digital drawing. Photoshop is one of the main industry standards for digital drawing tools and if PS's brushes aren't fully supported it makes it hard for people to reasonably consider sticking with AP. 2. I also vastly prefer Photoshop's newer brush organization system to yours for a few reasons. The brush name can be visible along with stroke preview, brush size, and tool type. It's really important to me that the names be visible. I wasn't able to find a way to make them visible in AP. Additionally the way the folder structures works in Photoshop is better because you can have better organization. For example, you can have a parent folder with whatever name, and different named and sorted subfolders within the parent. You can even have addition subfolders in the children folders. From what I can tell with AP you can only make the parent category and no sub folders. This doesn't work well for me as I sell brushes in organized sets and this kind of ruins a lot of that organization. When I imported one of my organized sets it consolidated hundreds of brushes into a single chaotic folder which isn't usable. 3. Clip studio paint has a toggle-able keyboard shortcut to make any brush an eraser. Photoshop also has a feature that can be used similar to this although it's more obscure-- you have to set the brush blend mode to "clear" and then it becomes an eraser. The downside is that you can't make it a toggle-able shortcut which makes it cumbersome to use (you have to change from your current blend mode to clear to erase and back to your previous blend mode-- which is annoying). I was hoping there was a way/or that you would implement a toggle to have any brush act as an eraser. Obviously it'd be best if this was something you could assign a keyboard shortcut to. 4. I'm struggling with your zooming system and oddly enough panning. This is probably just something I've over-looked. But when one of your challenges is to make people reconsider their allegiance to Adobe things like this make it difficult. It's cool that you can zoom in to 1,000,000%, but why do you need to on a pixel only layer? Wouldn't that only be necessary if there were vectors present? I think that if there's only rasters on a given layer or on the screen it should only zoom in as far as the individual pixels turn into big blocks like photoshop. Another issue I'm having is that I'm so use to Photoshops amazing zoom in/and out feature with holding spacebar+alt and just dragging my stylus left or right. It's swift, responsive, and intuitive. However it didn't work this way in your program and I couldn't figure this out. Additionally once I was zoomed in a bit I tried panning the screen by holding spacebar and dragging and wasn't able to pan at all. Why? 5. Another important brush feature is blend modes for the texture itself and more controls over the texture. Photoshop has implemented this the right way. I mean look at the features here as an example, you can control the contrast/brightness of the base texture, texture each tip on/off, the blend mode of the texture, the depth %, min depth %, depth jitter %, and obviously the control of the brush. By comparison AP handles brush base textures in a far less featured way which is really disappointing and is without question another reason that Photoshop's ABR format doesn't transfer well. Again Dual Brush would be amazing too and with a similar set of features including blend mode. It is these features that make photoshop brushes arguably the most dynamic of any program. I'd love to see these features in AP!! 6. Are there plans to make a stand alone fully featured Digital Drawing program? This is a problem Adobe has long made with Photoshop too (they are finally doing something about it i.e Project Gemini aka Adobe Fresco). It has spent most of it's program life catering more towards the retouching/Photoshopping side of things and less to the digital painter. Heck in like 25+ years of Photoshop they only added the ability to sort and categorize brushes a few years ago... and the mixes brush a few years before that. They are also very slow to respond to feature requests and don't communicate much or at all with their user base/community. 7. Smaller question but is there a hotkey or way to set one to show/hide the current layer (basically to toggle current layer visibility)? I use this all the time when I'm retouching in PS to see the changes I'm making before and after. Thanks guys! Dan
  4. It is happening during zooming or moving an object, which is above the text. It's really annoying and shouldn't happen in non-beta version...
  5. I've been trying, for the last hour, to simply zoom in on one of my designer files. I run Affinity Designer on a 2017 15-inch MacBook Pro, so hopefully it's not a hardware issue. Basically, I load up my file and try to zoom in. The file and images go fuzzy/pixelated and the spinning color wheel starts. I force quit and report the crash to apple. Is anyone else experiencing this? I do have quite a few layers and images within my file, but that (in my opinion) shouldn't be the cause.
  6. Hello forum I am facing some issues in affinity photo for windows can any please help me. 1.In Macro, when selecting the previous layer, it does not record in the action 2.No offset command 3.No Perspective / Distort / Skew tool 4.Only Scale and rotate but not useful 5.Jerks experienced while zooming in and out when done with zoom tool Thanks in advance
  7. Please add the ability to zoom in and out with the mouse scroll wheel to Affinity Photo for Windows. In Photoshop, that ability is available as a user interface option and it saves me an incredible amount of time when doing dust spotting or other fine detail work. Thanks!
  8. Hi, I experienced the following quite often: when I'm zoomed out, to have a good overview of my doc, I move objects as exactly as I can ... and to make it perfect I zoom in and do the rest. If u use the arrows (Shift+arrows) you will notice that it happens regularly that the when you are zoomed in, the first hit on an arrow will the objects not move 1px as expected - it seems that the distance the object moves, would "match" the distance of the former ZoomLevel or something like that. Cheers, Stefan AD_BugTranslationAfterZoom.mov
  9. hi the text at bottom of screen says to drag pointer up to zoom in and down to zoom out. on my mac it works fro right to left? are the instructions correct? many thanks
  10. I've got a pixel artboard and I'm zooming into 400% and can't edit artwork off the artboard, as AD restricts the panning to a space around the artboard only. It seems AD locks you out of a % of space around the artboard when zooming in, so I can only see the artwork when zoomed out, when zoomed in, I can only pan around the artboard for a limited distance.
  11. Hi, Is there any way to disable the double-click zoom to 100%? I generally use my mouse to zoom, and I'm finding that I try to zoom in quickly and accidentally get zoomed to 100%. Also, it seems like there should be a keyboard + mouse combination shortcut to zoom to 100%, rather than taking over the default mouse behavior. For instance, maybe holding down shift+z and clicking with the mouse. Thanks.
