  1. Yes. I’m familiar with that bug. I assumed it had been fixed.
  2. I’m trying to copy a group of vector layers from one document to another in Affinity Designer for iPad 1.7. The app crashes every time I try to paste into the new document.

    Nordic Rowing Club of Zurich coat of arms

    @Aammppaa Thanks for the compliments & feedback. The flags don't have a bevel at all; they just have a few gradients overlaid. I'm not sure if I'll keep the shield bevel, but I will at least keep the border. The flag border is a rope brush in yellow. It's quite narrow, so you might need to view at full magnification to see it. Perhaps it should be a bit wider. Drop shadows can work depending on situation/medium. I’m concentrating on a simple case to begin with, and I also want to ensure that the CoA looks good even without details like this. I think shadows and other effects could add value later! Thanks again!
  4. The coat of arms of my rowing club, Nordiska Roddföreningen i Zürich was hand drawn in 1893. A simplified version was later created at some time in the late 1990s or early 2000s. I’ve redrawn the coat of arms from scratch in Affinity Designer. The new CoA uses modern flags and a straightened shield, but otherwise hews pretty close to the 1893 design. ( I've included both earlier versions too for comparison.) I’d love to get feedback and suggestions. I’m particularly interested in learning more about how to convincingly simulate: Draped fabric (Current approach: shading overlays: shapes filled with elliptical semi-transparent gradients) Woodgrain (Current approach: brown color + 5% noise + shading overlays) Paper texture (Current approach: similar to wood) Thanks for your input!
  5. I created a new symbol and used it in many places in a document. I later created an updated version of the same group of shapes, but made these updates in separate document. Unless I have overlooked something, it now seems I must create a new symbol based on the updated group, and then replace all uses of the old symbol one at a time. A replace symbol feature would be very valuable. I realise that the implementation details could be complicated, but if anyone can figure it out, you guys can.
  6. Never mind. I found it in the Symbols studio: Detach symbols in selection.
  7. Hi, @stokerg. Thanks for the quick response. I look forward to the bug fix. In the meantime, is there a way to break the relationship between a particular symbol instance and the parent symbol?
  8. I recently began using the Symbols feature. Since then, I have been unable to paste a group of objects that is also a symbol into another document. I can copy the group, but the app crashes when I try to paste it into the other document. Affinity Designer for iPad 1.6.4 iOS 12.3 (16F5148a)
