    Rounded corner number input

    Workaround: create your rounded rectangles on the desktop version of AD and then import on iPad. The corner radius values seems to be preserved when resizing, editing etc.
  2. I don’t notice this bug on my first-gen 12” iPad Pro.

    Affinity Designer for Ipad

    Affinity Designer for iPad with the same feature set like the desktop version would be a breakthrough for graphic designers. Currently in the App Store there is no app which could be seriously used for print and web projects from start to finish. There are a couple of illustration apps but they don't have anything else: no layout tools, no print features (CMYK, spot colors, bleeds), no web design/export features (pixel snapping, asset export etc. etc.). If I were the CEO of Serif Ltd., I would've pushed Affinity Designer for iPad to the market before the Photo app. :)
  4. If you mean showing and moving the cursor when hovering the Apple Pencil (or the finger) over the screen, then I don't think this is possible on iPads.
  5. Currently we can only choose bold and italic. Something like this would be much better:
  6. ... on the color pickers, please. :)
  7. I wanted to use Affinity Designer for a print project and discovered that when I place an EPS file (a logo) containing Pantone spot colors, these colors are not recognized by AD. Instead they are rendered as CMYK. This is not good. The desired behaviour should be to read and import the spot colors automatically into a document palette. Most of the time I have to use the exact same colors for other objects, and they must remain spot colors. I also did some tests and discovered that, if I save that EPS as PDF using Illustrator, then import the PDF into AD, the spot colors are preserved and output correctly when exporting the final artwork as PDF for print. But there is another issue. The color of the imported PDF objects looks different on screen than the same Pantone color added from the Pantone Solid Coated palette. Take a look at the screenshot below to see what I'm talking about. (Once again, this seems to happen only on screen. If I export as PDF for print the colors are exactly the same. Still, the screen lies and that's not good.)
  8. Fonts can be added to the iPad using AnyFont. While this works pretty well, I've noticed AP doesn't let me access all the styles included in a font (including system fonts like Helvetica Neue). For bold and italics I can use the buttons on the Text panel, but other styles like light or black are not accessible.
  9. Am I missing something, or the color pickers from Affinity Photo on iPad do not support hex color values?

    Affinity Photo for iPad launched at Apple WWDC

    Great app, I am playing with it right now on my iPad Pro and I like it a lot. But I am so eager to see Affinity Designer on the iPad!
  11. Can anybody explain why the four shapes shown in the screenshot below disappear when I export the file as "PDF (for print)"? I attached the Affinity Designer file if someone wants to run some tests. The shapes are filled with a gradient and one of its stops is completely transparent (0%). I know I can flatten the transparencies as a last resort, but is there a way to preserve the vector shapes and the transparencies, like Illustrator does? test affinity designer.afdesign
  12. I am glad to hear you're working on apps for iPad. There is a lack of decent vector drawing apps for the iPad Pro and also the available photo editing apps are nothing more than toys. Please don't be afraid to make real PRO apps for iOS and charge as much as needed for them. We have enough dumb apps priced at $10 or less which are useless for professionals.
