When I watch video training, I note that the dialogs on the Mac are different from those on Windows.

Would it be possible to post a list of the differences and an explanation as to why?

Thanks,

Can you provide some examples of the differences you've noticed so far, and a pointer to the videos you're watching?

I don't know of any such list but the most common reason for why they are different is because the Mac OS & Windows OS provide different ways of doing the same or very nearly the same thing. Macs also provide built-in support for a few features that Windows PCs do not, like the Media Browser, the  Apple Color Picker, & System Color palettes.

Walt,

Here is the example I remember offhand.  The Levels dialog in Windows has  Output White Level and Output Black Level sliders which are absent in the Mac version.

This from Udemy Affinity Photo: Solid foundations video 11 (done on a Mac) Getting the Dark and Light Right, Part 1.

I've also seen some disparity in the Affinity Revolution videos but I don't recall them specifically.

In the future I'll document all such discrepancies.

As does mine running 1.7.2 on macOS High Sierra.
