Straighten function does not work

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Straighten function does not work on version 1.7.3. 

MacOS 10.14.6 on Mac mini and Mac Book Pro.

It sounds like a rare case!

When you drag the tool out and the screen flashes, a small box of text appears next to your cursor—can you tell me what it says? It might give me a clue!

Ah okay—maybe that's not too relevant, then.

Have you tried on different images from different sources? For example, if you drag an image out from the Stock Panel.

I think it may be relevant

If you copy the layer first then enter crop and do a straighten on the image then do a paste the straightening is immediately reversed (canceled)

The question is where is that paste coming from in the OPs video?


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.

I'm beginning to wonder what we would do without you carl123 ;)

I think you may be onto something. Perhaps pop83 has some sort of shortcut manager running? It's a shame we cannot see the Layers Panel on the video. @pop83 - could you check to see if this is the case, please?

Chris and carl123,

Thank you for your support.

I could do straighten after I added a layer (happen again after delete layer).

But it was not happen previously, it's curious.

I did not use shortcut manager ...or I'm afraid I'm using without knowing? :-D I will check application updated within last few weeks.

Thank you!

Is it rare case? 

Exactly same thing here.

Straighten and Rotate function does not work on version 1.7.3. 

MacOS 10.14.6 on Mac Book Pro.

Reading the posts carefully I noticed that for me also "paste" after using the straighten tool.
I noticed that what makes "paste" is a Mac application called PopClip
Recently (09/29/19) PopClip was updated when my problems started.
Turning off PopClip everything in Affinity Photo is back to normal.
Hope this helps.

I found the solution.

WSS, I'm using PopClip, too! Thank you for your info.

I want to use PopClip so I will avoid this by adding layer.

Thanks for discovering the culprit! I've just installed the free trial and reproduced the issue. I then poked the settings in PopClip and noticed we could 'Exclude Apps' so I added Affinity Photo and I can no longer reproduce the issue.
