Hello there
iam new user in Affinity,sorry if my english so bad
i switch my PS into Affinity

when i handle a project(Manga Scanlation) i use an action(in now in affinity thats feature named macro)
I want to rebuild my action to be a macro

this is an action(www.mediafire.com%2Ffile%2Fflsr4yr2awy625b%2FBubble_Mask.atn%2Ffile&event)

but i have a problem

I can't rebuild an action
there is a tutorial for make a that action    if you want watch a video,you can watch this video

and this is a tutorial on the text(i think thats video and this text have any little different)
I think this is the fastest way to clean the bubble text once you have a levelled image. It makes use of the "QuickWand" tool and the "Make Work Path" feature. Sorry for lack of help images, but this is basic.

1) Use QuickWand with options: tolerance set high (128), contiguous, anti-alias, Sample All Layers

2) Click white space in each bubble. (If any of the selection "leaks out" into the image, the bubble border is broken, so just undo the last quick wand, find the break, patch it with a brush, and (ctrl-shift-d) reselect what you have already.)

3) You can double check none of the bubbles are "leaking", by going to Channels, pushing Q (quick mask mode) and making "Grey" channel invisible. Then you will see a simple black/white mask of the bubbles. If everything is ok, hit Q again and exit quickmask mode.

4) Execute "Make work path", TOLERANCE= 0.5. If you're not familiar with this command, you can find it by: if quick wand tool is the active tool, just right click on the canvas, and it will be in the context menu; or you can find it from the Paths window if you click on its option menu.

5) Make all layers invisible so you can see the paths clearly.

6) Switch to Pen tool (P). Hold CTRL+SHIFT keys down and then select all the bubble border paths (and not the text) (this is what makes this method fast); don't do this by clicking on each border, just drag a small box over the border so you select some part of the border.

7) Once all the paths of the bubble borders are selected, right click on the canvas, and from the context menu choose "Make selection"

😎From the menu, Select->Modify->Contract (either 1 or 2 pixels), to preserve the smooth bubble border

9) Then switch to Marquee Tool (M), right click on canvas to select from the context menu "Fill...", Use WHITE, everything else normal.

10) Deselect (ctrl+d), and delete the work path that was created. You are done.

Are you looking for a way to isolate black elements, or isolate white elements?

I want to select a bubble text(white),but also I want select a text (black select).

If i select text(black) with brush select or flood tool it is make more time

So i want to make select bubble(white),after that I want inside the bubble(text is included) fill with white

It sounds like a complex string of actions, to be able to automate the removal of text from the bubbles.

I think I’m probably approaching your problem in an overly simplified way (I would probably, just use some

white airbrushing in a layer on top to hide, but I’m sure that’s not what you’re trying to achieve).

Alternatively, if this helps in any way, I like using Channel selections to cleanly separate all black

elements from all white elements. Is this something you use?

Anyway, I hope it works out for you

Yeah i select white elements

I think using channel selection to clean separate all black is the best option

Thx for your solution
