I know that some time ago points in vector tools where changed to round shape instead of square. Round points look really nice.
So maybe it is logical to change points in Curves tool to same friendly round look?
Something like this or this:

Currently quick snapping with auto guides to edges, objects and other elements is enabled when i hold ALT key.
Same time on macOS most apps use ALT key + drag to copy object.

Suggestion:
Use ALT key + drag to copy objects/layers.
Use drag + ALT key for snapping objects/layers to auto guides.

Option to click and hold mouse button and drag around eye icons to quickly show/hide multiple layers.
Currently in PhotoLine it is only possible to click each layer or select multiple layers and show/hide them.

UPD. Problem fixed in 22.40b8

How about remove double lines between elements?

And here are some additional ideas, but i am not sure how to fit them to PhotoLine layers structure with Mask indicators:
More accurate proportional layout for layers eye and checkbox columns.
Option in preferences to turn off checkbox column. I know, that mostly people use it with tablets, but for me personally it only adds confusion and useless complexity. I would be happy to hide it.
Concept examples:

UPD. Seems some small improvements done in 22.40b8

Highlighted Text effect in Text Tool Settings (auto generated rectangular solid background under the text). Adjustable rectangle color. Adjustable rectangle size (distance from text edges)
Example:

Here is some further explanation of confusion with layer selection checkmarks logic:
When i click layer it became checked. OK
When i Shift-Click multiple layers they all became checked. OK
Problem starts when multiple layers where checked and next i want to quickly check only one layer from them. This basic action is impossible to do in one click. I click to layer, but other layers stay checked. So i need to click on unchecked layer to remove selection and only when click to desired layer.

Image

This problem became even more confusing in situation when all layers where selected. I can only Command-Click some layer to remove selection from it, when click it again to remove selection from other layers, and only when select desired layer.
This is very confusing and unlogical. Instead of basic seamless mechanical action "click to select/deselect" i always need to remember complicated and distracting labyrinth of actions.

UPD. Problem partially fixed in 22.40b9 (Options->Working->Special->Layerlist with selection field)

I wouldn't miss the checkboxes either, but maybe the developers can make an option to hide or show them so everybody is happy.

  • We will add an option to remove the selection fields at "Options > Working > Special"
  • Selecting layers in the layer list works logical.
    • You can select layer with Shift (areas) or Ctrl (Cmd - macOS).
    • If you have selected several layers and click on one of them, you will change the active layer. This is useful since there are functions that need several layers and the result depends on the active layer.
    • If you want to remove the whole selection, press Ctrl-D (Cmd-D macOS).
    • If you want to remove the selection from single layers, use Shift and Ctrl (Cmd macOS) like you did when selecting the layers.

Ok, Cmd-D works. Nice to hear it will be an option to remove the selection fields!

Sure there is some logic in checkmarks and "dual layered" selection hierarchy, but it is just too complicated to guess and too special. Also it is confusing because clicking on layers list behaves very different than clicking on actual objects in document:

It seems Options->Working->Special->Layerlist in 22.40b9 only visually hides Layerlist, but layers selection logic works in same confused way.

Is it possible to auto add numbers to new vector curve creation tools as well (same as to new vector shapes (1,2,3,4,5,6...) in 22.40b9)?

For me I can't even select multiple layers by holding Shift.

Select multiple layers by holding Shift works for me on macOS

I'm on windows so it has to be a platform thing then.
