Can we get an update for the brushes panel? The selection is gone after changing size of the brush or tool! I don't think this is too complicated to implement, please consider it :(

Add your lament in those threads... Affinity apps are the only ones that stop the link between the used brush each time you modify a setting while working, as if we should always use brushes without adapting them to our need (width, opacity, etc.).

That's particulary annoying when you're used to apps remembering the last selected brush, or showing a panel of last used brushes, or permitting a panel of favorite brushes, etc.

 

etc.

The fatidious workaround would be to create a category by document and add the brushes you used in it... or always using the same brush, or a limited amount of them, so you can easily distinguish and remember them. Circle, rectangle, triangle. Keep simple.

Printing error for drop shadow in clipped shape still shows. I reported this back when 1.9 was released ( this error was with official release not beta, but its still here in the latest beta verison )

This was a new document. Two photos shown here, the screen shot and the PRINT. The print has the dropshadow falling out side of the clipped area when printing from the designer file.

I posted this before but nobody replied.

@thegary

Thanks for your report. You did get a reply in your other thread where walt.farel said you should follow step 3 and provide a file to show this happening.  It may require a number of the elements in your file to replicate. Please go back to your other thread and provide a file containing a copy/pasted bit of the original that doesn't print, thank you

Thank you for the reply Patrick. When I upload the file, is there a way to make sure others can't download it?

Didn't get a notification that there was a reply to the original post. Thank you for pointing out.
