Affinity Photo, Affinity Designer ̶ Rotated canvas and Decrease/increase brush width/hardness with on-screen readout

Recommended Posts

When the canvas rotated, the Decrease/increase brush width/hardness with on-screen readout orientation follows the rotation angle.
It is the problem with Designer's vector and pixel brushes also.
It would be great if the on-screen directions would always be the same (width: left/right and  hardness: up/down).

Affinity Photo build 1.6.1.93 (1.6.3.102), Affinity Designer build 1.6.1.93 (1.6.3.102)

Steps of reproduction (Affinity Photo):


1. select any paintbrush

2. rotate canvas with 90°

3. try Decrease/increase brush width with on-screen readout with Right mouse button press+Alt+drag (left/right)
 or
try Decrease/increase brush hardness with on-screen readout with Right mouse button press+Alt+drag (up/down)

HI Zoltan KorcsoI

 

I've been trying this in both our release and beta versions and as I rotate the canvas and the readout whilst adjusting the brush width/harness remains in the same orientation regardless of rotation. Are you able to attach any screenshots or video of what you are seeing?

 

Thanks

@Chris_K,

I can confirm @Zoltan Korcsok finding. It seems like the sizing relates to the orientation of the view. With full 90° rotation it's not affected. In between that it no longer is the sideways or up-down, it's more diagonal to change the brush size and hardness.
