How can I get the Isometric panel in Photo? I was playing with custom cube grid in Grid and Snapping axis yesterday and the panel appeared allowing me to fit artwork to grid. But now I can't get it back, it is not in View > Studio. Does anybody know?

Weird it isn't in "Studio"

Isometric panel is only in ADesigner.

Then they have a confusion in the help, where this panel is not listed.

The isometric panel is not in Affinity Photo, he just has Affinity Designer open as well and has the isometric panel floating and Affinity Designer minimised.

Then I owe you an apology.

Why is Affinity burying the isometric panel and not having this listed on the studio panel list?

When you open the Grid and axis manager you have to uncheck and check the create plane set option to get the isometric panel up.

GTG but sorry and thanks for the video.

Maybe it's something unresolved/forgotten in the code, or some side effect of trying to process documents from ADesigner. Something like Text on Path, which is not in APhoto, but when a document from ADe with Text on Path is opened, the text can be edited and set.

I don't know why but oddly, once you get it to display you can drag it into one of the tabbed studio panel groups & it will remain there every time you start up AP.

Are Serif aware of this? is it a bug? I have AP both on my mac and my windows pc. On Mac the isometric panel appears under Studio, whilst it does not appear in the windows version. Super frustrating. I tried the check/uncheck option but nothing appears. Any other solutions?

??? In Affinity Photo on my Mac, the Isometric Studio panel does not appear on the list of panels in the View > Studio menu.

Ah sorry you are right, it's not in the list under studio, but I have the panel available in Mac and not on the windows version. Here is a screenshot from my Macbook Air showing the panel. Very weird

How did you get it to display?
To me it's in AP like in APub, the Manager is available but not the Panel (while the panel is available in the AD persona of APub).

I got the Isometric Studio panel to appear in AP by first setting the Grid & Axis Manager to one of the Grid types that supports creating plane sets, & toggling that off & on, which opens the Isometric Studio panel.

Once that panel was displayed, I dragged it into one of the tabbed Studio panel groups, for me the same one where I collected Styles, Adjustments, & several other panels into one tabbed group:

It remains there after restarting the app, so I no longer have to open the Grid & Axis Manager to access it.

Thanks. The panel does not appear on mac in Separate Mode but only appears in not-Separate Mode. I don't see a way to make it to display in Separate Mode.

Besides the missing entry in the Studio panels list this seems to be an additional symptom of this UI bug with the Isometric feature.

I had not checked that in AP but you are right, or at least I can find no way to make it appear in Separate Mode.

I think this is more of an oversight than an outright bug in the code, something they just neglected to implement that hopefully will be easy to fix.

My suspicion is that the Isometric panel should not be available in AP, and the bug is that it can be coerced into appearing in AP.

If that is true, then perhaps the Grid & Axis Manager either should not be available in AP as well, or at least not allow the creation of isometric grids that allow creating plane sets that can be used with them?
