    pragmaticleas got a reaction from Przemysław in Precise and accurate selections cannot be made with Apple Pencil in crowded area   
    Currently when some selectable points or curve segments (things) are close together but not overlapping, a precise and accurate tap and drag of a desirable thing with the Apple Pencil would often result in the tapping and dragging of another thing close to the desirable one instead.
    For example, when using the node tool on a curve made with the pen tool, and I want to tap and drag a node or curve segment, I often end up selecting a bezier handle instead, so I find myself very often having to undo and zoom in a lot to select and drag the thing I want and zoom back out afterwards. This really limits the productivity when using this software.
    If this aspect could be improved, it would be much appreciated as I can then achieve more in less time and with less frustration.
    I am using Affinity Designer version 1.6.4.45 on a 3rd generation 12.9 inch iPad Pro running iOS 12.1.4 with an Apple Pencil 2.

    I just tested some cases in the 1.7 update for Affinity Designer for iPad. The selection precision and accuracy seems to have improved. Thanks for the update!
    Can someone else verify as well?

    Yes, it all good.

    Hi Deco_tk,
    Welcome to the forums
    Thanks for your report, this is logged with our developers to be fixed, I'll move this thread to the bugs section and bump the dev report with your post now. Hopefully this will be fixed shortly, apologies for any inconveniences in the meantime.

    This issue has been raised many times and hopefully developers will release a fix. It seems the app is aimed more at use of finger than pencil hence the large selection area, which makes it difficult when nodes are close. For now the only solution appears to be zooming in so that the nodes appear further apart.

    Hello, 
    I’ve been having a problem with a basic function on affinity Designer for IPad. But as I don’t know if it can be a settings issue I’ve come here to ask but maybe I’m just being dumb or I’m not used to the affinity workflow.
    Depending on the distance between a node and the handles, I just can’t select the node properly, instead one of the handles ends up being selected and I accidentally move that handle. So in order to move the node I have to zoom in until there’s really no chance of selecting a handle. Even if I’m clearly with the Apple Pencil right on top of the node and completely out of the handle space most of the time I accidentally select the handle.
    the same missclick problem happens if I have a thin Line (about 0.5pt) above a another selectable object. If try to move or duplicate that thin line, almost always the background object ends up being selected, unless I give a huge zoom and even then it was difficult for me to move the line.
    Another case is if I zoom out and there’s some nodes close to each other I can’t select most of them due to the click area.
    I couldn’t find any affinity tutorial that solved my problem. I’ve tested another vectorial app for iPad and I could do all the things I mentioned here without a single problem. I do like affinity and I really do hope there’s a way of changing this selection range/sensitivity/threshold , because it’s not being worth for me to use it right now, it’s only slowing down my workflow.
    From the object distance on the attached imagem I’m already unable to select any of the two nodes by the side of the blue(active) one.
    I’m using IPad Pro A1876 with Apple Pencil 2nd generation and Affinity 16.4.45
    thanks for the support.
