Adjust layer thumbnail size

Recommended Posts

In Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator we always had the option to change the size of your layer thumbs.

 

I really like bigger thumbs.

Hello, just got myself a Affinity 1.6 and I was looking for possibility to increase thumbs size. It is something that has been added or it is still 'feature' that is not implemented?

I raised the topic too myself today in another thread. I have a high resolution monitor, it's nearly impossible to see the thumbnails - just about makes them pointless. Surely it can't be that hard to implement this? or is it that it's just not a priority in any way?

I vote to make this change. Sometimes when I invert a mask from white to black I can't even tell anything happened because the mask is so small or when I paint on a mask it is hard to see the changes on the mask icon.

  1. Add my yes to this too. The thumbnails are far too small on a large display. Black background can be very unhelpful too. Conversely the icons in the mask and adjustment thumbnails are too large and obscure too much. When working in AP I find I have to rely on naming entirely.

I'd like to see an option to increase layers panel thumbnail sizes too. I have been alternating between Photoshop and Affinity, with the intention of shifting over to Affinity completely if it meets my needs. However, I often find myself drifting back to Photoshop in preference to Affinity, one of the main reasons being I really dislike the pokey little thumbnails on the Affinity layers panel.

It's already implemented in the 1.7 beta.
