Parallel batch still stops after a random number of processed images and CPU is at 100%. Affinity Photo opens way too many threads for the parallel processing, there are literally several hundreds of threads. Do you just open one thread per image in a for loop??! If so, please let me speak to your programmer... ;) This is not how you do parallel programming.

White paper on white background. How to see the border? In PS, the document has a shadow, AP has a problem.

If the background color matches the color of the document, this should not be a problem. Add a stroke or some sort of effect, so that the border can be discernible.

Hello Max,
try the following:
Edit
Preferences
User interface
Background grey level

Then the work surface should be more visible

Thank you. I know how to change the background color. I need, that it would be possible not to change the background color to work.

Looking good so far!

One glitch which actually I think it's been there in the past few releases: if I zoom in on an object, say a line, and then I zoom out to move it, the position of the handles on the screen is off.

If I switch to the pan zoom for a moment and then back to the move tool again, the handles are back in place properly aligned with the object.

I am not seeing that. What kind of line and how can I reproduce it?

Thanks

 Too bad it's still very slow loading of Fuji raw files. Thanks for the other fine work.

I  use an older Fuji X-S1 and RAF raw files and I usually see only a 2-3 second delay in loading.  I thought this was pretty good (at least as fast as my .PEF Pentax files).

If the release version and this beta behave the same then the beta forum is not the place to post, even if you wish it were otherwise.

As the 7 changes mentioned in the changelist in the opening post of this thread say nothing about RAW opening speed, I see no point in these comments in this thread. Further posts unrelated to the beta will be removed.

Hi Patrick

Echo the comments off Hofnaar and please delete my post if you wish. Made last comment after a post seemed to infer there is no problem in loading times of Raf files. Thought the idea of beta was to report good and bad points to improve what is an excellent programme. Concerned RAF is on the back burner as no comment?

Should this thread have been closed/locked when .93 went live?

 

As there is no current AP beta.

Close it but move the posts to the correct forum. I run the beta so I tend to post things in the beta forum. Right now, the release and the "beta" are identical so can't we allow for that?

Interesting point, hadn't thought about this before. When working with the beta I've always just reported anything I find. Some clarification from the team may be useful. When they post 7 changes maybe the only thing they want feedback on are those seven items and any related fallout everything else might just be noise to them?

Regards

Probably feedback on anything would be helpful but be nice to the testers who run the beta and post in the beta forums even though technically, the deta install is the same as the release. It is an easy mistake to make and will only be made in the time between a release and the first new beta.
