I'm having trouble pasting with cut and paste using AffinityPhoto macros.


Recommended Posts

I have a question in AffinityPhoto.
I want to start recording a macro with a portion of a photo selected as a range.
1、CTRL+X
2、CTRL+V
Cut and paste to stop recording macro.

Next, play the macro with a different part of the picture selected.
It cuts the selected area, but pastes the part that was cut during macro recording.

Is this a bug? Or is it a specification?
If this is the case, I can't use macro anywhere else.

That is how macros work. I do not think it is viewed as a bug, but merely one of a large number of areas where macros could be improved.

Thank you.
For example, Photoshop provides a way to flip a selected range of images, but Affinity does not.
So I tried to create a macro that would cut the selected area, flip it left and right, paste it, and flip it left and right.

1、CTRL+X
2、CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+Left key
3、CTRL+V
4、CTRL+SHIFT+ALT+Left key
5,V

However, it did not work well with this macro.
It may be that it's a specification and there are cases where it's better, but it would be nice if you could improve it like macros in other software.
thanks

I'm sure it's been suggested many times. If you want to add your voice you can search for a one of the topics in the Photo on Desktop Feature Request forum and add your own comment to it. That's where Serif looks for suggestions about improving the application.
