2 bugs in Pixel Persona: Selection dislocates + Color pick order changes


Recommended Posts

Excuse me if there are another topic on it, I couldn´t find it on the forum.

I having a long problem with:
1) Selections in pixel persona: when I do a cross selection (polygonal or lasso) it dislocates to top left.
2) Color Pick Tool (i): when I pick a color, it appear as foreground (above) at Tools Menu. But when I select the Brush tool, it goes do Backgroun color. So I must go and change again.

My Affinity Designer Version is 1.10.6.1665

1. Probably a known issue where pixel selections shift up and left but the amount of the Bleed defined for the document. Workaround: remove the Bleed temporarily.

2. I think that's just the way it works. You need to choose the Brush Tool, then choose the color. Or swap the color once you choose the tool. You can try X as a shortcut.

Thanks my friend.
Question 1 worked with this workaround, thanks.

About question 2, the X shortcut help a little, but I don´t know how to pick color with the Brush tool (in Adobe is possible using the "i" shortcut). So, I must use the Picker to select a color, anyway. 
There´s another point here: sometimes is not only this problem of foreground/background alternance bug, this two palletes turn into fill/stroke layout too. 

But, thanks for your help. I´m tryig to improve the tool, but as I know, they won´t focus more on the v.1 (which I think is denying the previous marketing discourse about free upgrades forever).

Try pressing Alt and clicking the mouse to have the brush tool pick a color.

You're welcome. Also, try checking the Status Bar for hints about how the various tools work, and what their modifiers will do.
