Affinity design - Crop tool - transformation setting deactivated

Recommended Posts


I try to create my own brush. I create new square web type document/canvas and try to crop texture to the same size.

So when I simply transform texture layer it self, I can see and use active "Transform" option, to set the size. But when switch to the "crop" tool and start move it, I can see the "crop size" in the corner, but can't set specific size for it, because the same "Transform" option is deactivated. 


So my question is:

1. how to setup specific crop area size?

PS. in the link below author shows how to crop texture and he has this "Transform" option active there. Check right bottom corner, H: and W: are changed -> 1:28 

In screenshots below you can see how looks my "Transform" option when I crop.

Hello Anastasia, welcome to the forums. In the video is an earlier version of Designer used. In the actual version (1.9.1) the vector crop tool behave like you've discribed it, it doesn't show anything in the transformation window. To me this is logical right, because a cropping is not a transformation. But it would be nice to have a numerical read-out for the crop tool like it is in photo.
