Great job!

One issue I've found: for brushes with texture set to Nozzle mode the preview is broken (shows a flat brush).

Check for example DAUB Bristles > Large Textured Gouache (the third from the bottom).


Texture works but it is not displayed anymore.

I ran into this one (an empty layer row beneath the layer called 'Base'). I think it happened when i collapsed a Group layer, but i also noticed funny behaviour when simply adding layers, i.e. a text layer in one of the groups.


PS. This originally was an imported .psd file with smart layers in it.

^^ I've faced that issue too in Designer a few times


On another subject, I think there might be an issue going on with pasting pixels. They do not paste in position. Insert a photo and rasterize it. Put a selection box around a region and cut and paste it. The pasted region seems to be far off.

Inpainting brush bug


Inpainting just stops working and you have to restart the app to get it back again. Here's how to recreate it.

  1. Bring in a pixel layer to a comp, so it has an alpha on its own layer (RGBA)
  2. Nest another pixel element to it
  3. Use inpainting brush on the parent layer - it works
  4. Create a new pixel layer on top - set inpainting to (Current Layer & Below - it keeps forgetting its settings)
  5. Paint on the new layer and it creates a direct clone of what is below, no inpainting
  6. This behaviour is now default until you restart the app.

System: Yosemite 10.10.5

Masking bug

Selections made in masking mode are persistent, invisible, can't be deselected and are saved to the document.

  1. Have a pixel layer with any sort of stuff on it
  2. Move to masking mode (the one with the red overlay)
  3. Draw gradient to mask portions of it
  4. Select > Deselect
  5. Save
  6. Open again in either Designer or Photo
  7. Be frustrated that nothing you add to the document is visible unless in the non-masked area
  8. Deselect still not possible
  9. Only way to deselect is to create a new selection via > select all and deselect that one
