  1. Thanks
    fabiogil got a reaction from Stefan Johnsson in Move tool / node tool not work correctly   
    Hi @GabrielM, 
    Thank you for your return, but I would recommend you to take a look at the other topics that many people are mad about this issue. It's not about a file, but with any file. so it's an app's bug.
    And we still do not have any official answer from Affinity about that. It's sad!

    At this stage of the game the issue has been occurring for at least 4 months, it might be necessary to leave a review on the AppStore for this app.  They claim the app to be a high quality precision vector application but they can’t even get a basic fundamental editing feature to work correctly.  Maybe a review might wake up Serif to this issue, but I’m not holding my breath.

    @DelicateGeniusI don’t like this solution... as a PRO tool, the app must be accurate. Simple as that.
    A solution as that for me is unacceptable...

    @fabiogil The Mods ARE logging these issues with the app developers. The developers are simply very very slow in providing solutions or even progress reports. A major release before years end would be a nice surprise.

    So much for leaving an AppStore review.  Someone already did and the response was disappointing

    After the last update 18/11/2018 it seems to be improved, but not completely solved. Still transforms accidentally.
    by comparison I tested the behavior using the app Graphic and the experience is much better. And they don’t standardize the app as a PRO tool. So AD for iPad is now on my opinion below of the line of amateur app.
    I really recommend the Affinity devs to test the competitor Graphic for IPad.

    @Chris B
    I figured out that the problem is because they have designed the app to be used using fingers. Which is great!  But when using the apple pen the experience is awkward and give the frustrating  impression of lack of accuracy.
    the app needs to be smart in recognizing if the touch is being given with a finger or a precision tool (apple pen), what doesn’t happens now.
    I’ve measured the “sensitive-active area” of the Hot corners of the object. Here what I’ve found:
    Any touch point inside of the circles areas  will transform the object. That’s why it’s so difficult to move an object if it’s already selected. The space you have to move it is easily mistakable by the huge active corners areas.
    I would reduce the active area of the corners in 85% then we will see accuracy using a precision tool again.

    Hi edobarbosa,

    As DM1 has said this is something that is logged with development to be fixed, so all I can really do is get it bumped with them!

    Hi!
    I love the Affinity Designer app for iPad and admire how well it was thought and developed however I have an issue that is preventing me from using it for professional work: the lack of accuracy in the Apple Pencil.
    This issue turns what it should be the simplest operation into the most nerve wrecking one: selecting stuff.
    I often struggle to select the node I want or simply move an object without distorting it because it selects and changes the bounding box of the objects.
    Sometimes there's even 1 (fat) finger distance between what I want to select and where I touch the tip of the apple pencil and still fails.
    I was wondering if this is something solvable and if I can have hope to use it at work soon, because, you know, tight deadlines are already testing enough for one's nerves

    Here the same, guys. Even after the second update
    It's a completely frustrating experience.
    It pissed me off, I'm simply not using AD on Ipad anymore till they fix it... :((((
    Sad feedback, but real...

    Chiming in to say I'm seeing this issue as well. I also often find myself trying to move a selected object without switching to the Move tool first, simply by using a one-finger touch outside the selected area (a gesture I've gotten used to in other apps). I wonder if that might make sense to implement here, so we can move objects without needing to cover them with a finger/pencil.

    Happens even to bigger objects, I’m pencil-taping and dragging in the center of the qube, still somehow manages to resize it (with a lag). Maybe some “move” handle like for rotation (on opposite side, for example) would be good idea (for small objects especially)?

    This is my current #1 frustration with the app.  If anyone has a work around or simple way to prevent this I'd love to know it.  [Using Apple Pencil]

    Hi Guys,
    Great update! I've been using AD for 3 years! My considerations:
     
    1. Something that is very annoying, especially on daily basis workflow is the 'save popup' (see image) mainly when using Separate Mode > the tool bar always get on top of it, and I always have to move the bar. It's really annoying! Please, consider changing the behavior of the save popup!!!
    2. the Frame text do not adjust/ snap automatically to the size of the text block. It just doesn't make sense! Why should I keep the frame size smaller than the text block?
    Intuitivelly i think it should adjust automatically to the size of the text block..
