Just bought Affinity Photo and some questions

Recommended Posts

I just cancelled my CC subscription this morning and bought AP. Really enjoying it so far and a lot of the same shortcuts has made it very nice. Couple of questions though:

 

1. When I import an image to work on, it is always locked. Is there a way to import it and have it be unlocked?

 

2. After I unlock the image to rotate it, I am using the on-screem handle. It works fine except when I manipulate the handle and pause at all, the image starts to move down. Then I have to press Cmd+0 to center it again. Has anyone experienced this "moving down" behavior when the rotation handle is held (after manipulation)?

 

Thanks in advance

2. Doesn't happen on my PC.

As regards number 2

If when rotating a top handle the handle or the rotation cursor reaches near the top of the screen the image will be pushed down so that the node and/or the rotation cursor will still remain visible on the screen.  The reverse happens when rotating a bottom node whereupon the image will move up.  I would suggest that this is by design.


Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

Thank you both for the replies. 

 

toltec - yes that did it. I think I need to explore the preferences more. Thanks again.

 

carl123 - I didn't think of that and you are right. When I zoom out and the image isn't "Zoom to fit" it does not move at all. A bit annoying at first but it now makes total sense. Thanks again.
