  1. Hello. It’s me again about what is missing in designer. I came across few posts on the forum and myself as well while working on a personal project. Text and Paragraph styles. This is making me realise even more that iPad and Desktop are still a bit to different. So I hope to see them in a near future update (even if I can see we are in too quite time recently). It’s really a pity because I keep stressing about the chance that we have here for the younger (but also older like me that feel the need to update themselves on the modern times) that are mobile people, ready to work just on iPad. Or at least give me chance to choose between Mac and iPad. Than will be down to me to choose a better multitasking situation (Mac) or a easier, lighter experience (iPad) but at the end with the same 100% identical app (apart from the UI). I really hope we can see this gap getting close and close in the short (really short) time.
  2. This is really an important feature that I hope will be implemented really soon.
  3. Totally agree. For me that i used mainly on iPad is really important that the swatch panel change. Just a few changes will make more effective. A search field for example when navigating in the swatches panel like pantone for example. Otherwise you have to scroll through all the colours. I love Affinity app and I'm happy were things are going. I think the only suggestion I can give is to keep up with the speed of update. The app world is change and people will change so quickly if they don't get what they looking for and it would be a disaster in my opinion if we will love Affinity apps during the journey. They add competition in the market but the market is also so unstable in the recent here. Anyway. I'm always on Affinity side just because the gave me a chance to choose and to choose something that makes me productive. But of course i fell there are still a lot of things to improve to the iPad. At least to give us the same features of the desktop. M
  4. Not a doubt that JGD has all the right to say what ever he wants we are in a free world. Maybe we need to consider that Serif is new as an Adobe competitor that shakes a bit the industries. At least for freelance. Im not one of those but i tested myself with packaging design at professional level. Yes been use to illustrator since version 2 using designer sometimes might be clumsy but when you learn how it works you can achieve a lot both on mac an iPad (although we don’t have an exact copy of the desktops version). Just a little consideration on this whole conversation that is going on. When we facing new things it is always complicated. You have just to get used. I said to the my team's designers that sometimes things aren’t the way we want and if we are not happy if we don't like them than the door is open to leave. the same here. There is always illustrator. I personally find affinity products really really good and well constructed and most important really reliable and performing really really well. total respect though to JGD opinion. And total respect for Serif team. Please just add our own spot colour and overprint option on ipad as well . Ihhihiihihhi M
  5. Hello guys. Silly question. When the full support to this feature will be implemented? M

    Bleed and Artboard. Is that a bug?

    I see thank you for the update Sean
  7. Hi Guys just notice this. If a create a new file and I select art-board I notice i can add bleed but you can’t visualise them. You can’t even select in the export section to include them. But if I create a new document, adding the bleed and then converting the page to an art-board, even if I can’t see on screen the actual elements beyond the edge in the bleed area I can’t select them the to be included in the PDF and so in this way I can have bleed. Is this a bug or is this wanted? Eventually happy to have found a bug to be fix. M

    Publisher on Ipad Beta

    Thank you Callum for your reply. M
  9. Hi Everyone maybe is it too early but I was wondering considering the fact the has been announced that we will have the iPad version too next year, do we have an ETA for the beta? M
  10. Hi everyone i was doing some extra testing on workflow between Photo and Designer and checking if in Photo we have the chance to get images from unspalsh website like on the desktop version. Notice with pleasure that we can I start to imagine 2 features. I don’t know if anyone suggested something like that already so: 1) Importing from Affinity Photo. Imagine to have the ability to get an image neither from iCloud and photos but from straight inside Affinity photo. This would be cool. 2) Having unsplash and the other images service also on Designer both mac and ipad and of course on Publisher too both mac and the future iPad version. Don’t know you but I think they will be pretty cool.
  11. Hi all. Am I the only one that feel we really need the option of saving our RAW development into preset to improve the overall workflow experience on iPad? M
  12. Happy to see more people feeling the same. M
  13. Yes. Even if I'm really pleased to have such a powerful app on an iPad that is going to change a lot for a graphic designer ... still disappointed that these few really important elements aren't implemented yet in the iOS app. So hopefully in the near (really near) future, we will get them.
  14. Hi Dan C thank you so much for your reply. Really appreciate you are really open of suggestions. Thank you for the explantion on the spot. Now it does make sense. Well I hope this will be a urgent addition to the ipad version too otherwise as graphic designers we will be a bit tied on our work as you know for sure that it’s a really important feature. Also hoping to see really soon too the overprint function. Still as graphic designers you can’t have an ipad with this feature. Can’t wait the to see the next update and have the PDF bleed fixed. Thank you so much anyway for the great work. Marco
  15. Professional Printing Full CMYK handling and ICC profiles Spot colours (for desktop only) What do we mean? I did a PDF with Pantone on my iPad and it does show the right pantone separations. Can we explain this? Overprint controls (for desktop only) This is so important for designers. When this will be implemented on the iPad. Trim, bleed and crop marks New Bleed preview Bug on the PDF export hopefully soon fixed Guys, I can't say how pleased we are all with this but I also want to point out (again) that on iPad graphic designer are left out with important features that are on the desktop. Please don't forget that you have a lot of people that are finding great and useful to for on iPad. There is an evolution of how to be a graphic designer that doesn't always require a Mac/Windows desktop/laptop. So hope we can see soon: Pantone swatch search feature, overprint, PDF export bleed fixed, linked images (both iPad and desktop) instead of embedded images. These just a few. Said that you are great and hope critics will be well accepted as compliments and also that some response will be given to Graphic designers. Best Marco
