  1. Maybe I’m doing this wrong - but what is the point of the Snap On/Off (in upper right corner) when I still have to drop down the snap-to options and turn things off. I would think that Snap OFF/DISABLE would disable all selected options. Someone please tell me the point of the upper right snap enable/disable. Thanks
  2. ‘nuff said. And frustrated with continually losing work.
  3. S is not the exact issue, but deals with the funky SAVE process. I’ve renamed a files (that was name ‘untitled” by default) but when I swipe left on file in “open files”, it continues to save as “untitled”. Surely a BUG.
  4. I’ve selected all snap-to options and all are working except for snap to node. Any tricks to make it work, or is it a bug? Incidentally, I prefer the old version location and functionality. Many more taps to select snap-to, plus, on an iPad I have to reach my hand to the top of screen for all options. Whereas, an old version it was easier to just tap at the bottom of the screen.
  5. I’m working in a small group of objects and when I move an object, it jumps to another group. The group it moves to is “Locked”. I even tried creating a Locked layer (for the rest of my design) and the moved object still jumps into that layer. Please see attached video. Thanks. IMG_0501.MOV
  6. I want to ADD all objects in a group but it doesn’t work unless I select each object individually. Selecting by group works for moving, duping or changing color - for example - but not for any object manipulation. ‘Anyway to do this? Thanks
  7. I see what was going wrong. With my app palette active, I was tapping “Add Global Color’ and it would swap my palettes. Is there a way to have Global colors in an App Palette?
  8. Maybe I’m misunderstanding “Application Pallet”, but I’ve created one in a design but when I am in another design, I see the pallet, but it’s empty. Is there something more to do, or is this a bug. I’m on the latest version of iPad. Thanks
  9. There are no pixel layers or gradients in my document. All content is vector, single color no stroke objects. I'll repeat my steps. I create a palette from the document. I see multiple "reds" of the same hue. My objective is to have one "red". I create a new object (not present when palette was created) and fill that object with one the reds that I want to find. Presumably, the Select Same will find my new object and all other objects that it "thought" was present when it created the Palette. After "Select Same" - only the NEW object is found/Selected. That's my problem. The "Create Palette" said that "Red.1" would in the doc, but after creating a NEW object, "Red.1" was not found in the hundreds of objects/reds that the "Create Palette" reported to be in the doc. Either "Same Select" is not working or "Create Palette" is reporting bogus reds. To determine if "Create Palette" is bogus, I would have to check hundreds of objects to see if the "red" I'm trying to find is truly in the doc or not. I'm throwing this out there to see if anyone else has had this problem. thanks
  10. I'm trying to reduce the number of colors in my document. There are several "reds" that are close in tone and I want to reduce it to one swatch. To do this, I created a Swatch Pallet from document. I then created a NEW object and filled it with the one of the unwanted "reds". In theory - when I choose "Select Same/Fill" I should have a selection of the existing "red" (as found in the "Swatch Pallet from Document" AND the object I just created and filled with that color - Right? No. After Select Same/Fill - AF only selects the new object. ?? AF found the unwanted "red" when it created the pallet, but did not find it when "Select Same / Fill". Just a thought - does "create pallet from document" also grab existing swatches? thanks,
  11. OK - so Gobal Colors have finally come to the iPad. But... I created the GC's when working on the Desktop app. When I opened the design on my iPad, they were not there. I viewed "Recent Colors" and I could see my GC's (with the little triangle in the lower right corner) but - when I switched the Palette to "Global Colors" - empty! I even found the GC's in the "Document" palette, but I'm unable to EDIT the color. What's the deal?? Is this a bug or another "lesser feature" on the iPad version? thanks
  12. My design has missed the boat on creating a Global Color. I have hundreds of objects (nested in groups) that I want to change the color. From what I read and test, I can only globally change colors if 1) I create a Global Color 2) fill my object with that GC color - now that object has the "magic" to change. As I said, I'm way down the road and want to "bless" my objects with a GC that I can play with/change. Is there any way to accomplish this? Drilling into each group, selecting my target and making it a GC color is not an option. Please Help! I have both iPad & Desktop (PC) but work primarily on iPad - so a resolution on either device is welcomed
  13. So AF had no response to this issue? I face the same/similar problem. I use AF to create designs that are destined for use in a cutting machine. I find that no matter how clean (minimal groups/layers) I keep my design, the resulting AF SVG has each object in it's own group. This causes failures when I import into the cutting software. I end up having to import the AF SVG into Illustrator to clean it up - an then it's successful with the cutting software. What's the point of this workflow? I like AF for iPad because I easily can work anywhere. But with AF's convoluted export workflow - I'm forced to use my desktop Illustrator. Am I missing an Export process or is AF just not aware?
