    Affinity Designer on iPad: Shear

    Thanks! It works! Thanks for your reply, I was aware of that option but its not as intuitive as on the desktop version. The way DM1 suggested is what I was looking for
  2. Hello, I would like to know how to do that (see video attached) on the iPad. I'm sure I did it a couple of times, but randomly, and I can't find how to do it on purpose. Thanks for your help! Screen_Recording_2019-11-19_at_12_50_33.mov
  3. I don't know why, but I'm wasting time trying to drag the guidelines while editing a photo and for no reasons, I can't. I can do it without issues on a new document but not when editing a photo. Can you please help me? Thanks Screen Recording 2019-08-15 at 11.09.51.mov
  4. What's the point in placing guides if when I apply the Distortion filter I can't see them? It would be great to be able to set them visible during any transformations, to use them as...Guides Is this doable? Thanks

    Guides not working when editing photo

    Ok. Now, for no apparent reason, it's working again after restarting the software. Pretty frustrating. One question: WHY is not possible to use Guides when in Develop Persona? That would be SO useful!
  6. Hello, I recently noted that when I import some (not all) RAW photos and hit the "Develop" button, some weird artifacts have occurred and are very noticeable even after the export at max quality. If I do the exact same process on AP on Mac, the export is perfectly clean and without any weird colours or artifacts. I’ve attached an example of photo that looks good when in AP and changes when exported to JPG. On the right side of the screenshot, there is the exported picture opened on the floating window of Apple Photo. The photo was shot with a Nikon D7000. Thanks for your help! EDIT: after re-installing the app on the iPad it seems to work perfectly and no noise or artifacts can be spotted on the same RAW files I was testing. What's the reason for this?
  7. Hi all, after hitting "Fit in Plane" and sticking the object on the isometric grid on Affinity Designer for iPad, can you please tell me how to reverse the procedure and go back to the original shape? I did it accidentally (so I know it's possible!) but I don't know how I did it and can't find anything online. Thanks
  8. Hi all, On the desktop version is very easy: with the Move Tool you just hover over the handle of the shape and the two little opposite arrows will appear (see pic), but how can I do the same thing on iPad? Thanks! IMG_8128.HEIC
  9. Hi! This might be a dumb question but I couldn't find an answer anywhere: Is the "Isometric Studio" (I'm talking about the panel that allowed to snap objects to the isometric grid, I've attached a screenshot for reference) available on the iPad app as well? Thank you! PS: the new update is great, thanks.
  10. Hi, I'm having troubles to move objects on Affinity Designer on the iPad Pro 12.9 2' generation. I can't find a proper tool to move objets and, every time, instead of moving the object it end up by deforming the vectors...and it's very frustrating! Am I doing something wrong? Is there a way to solve my problem? If not, would be possible to add a kind of "move tool" that allowed the user to just move the object without applying any modification? Thank you very much! (Please delete this topic if the question has already been asked)

    Moving objects in Affinity Designer for iPad

    From my experience, with the new 1.7 update the move tools works MUCH better and I really like to use the app on the iPad now. Thank you Affinity
  12. I know this has already ben asked (in 2015) but we are now in 2019 and it's still not been done. I need to use the rulers in Develop Persona! Is not that hard, come on. How can I be precise with the lens correction tool without been able to use rulers?! PLEASE FIX THIS! Thank you.

    Export Default File Name

    I have the same problem. Apple Photo does't shows the name/number of the RAW files I import and Affinity Photo automatically name them "Untitled". Is very time consuming to develop the RAW file, rename it manually and than keep editing. It would be amazing if the Affinity Photo file would have the same name/title/number of the RAW file when you import it.
  14. Could you please me tell me how? I can't find anything online and on the software I just find "Guides", but I can't move them because there isn't the Move Tool in Develop Persona.
  15. Damn, yes, I was confusing rulers with guides. I know I can use the grid, but I would prefer to be able to move the guides in the correct place. But I assume I will have to use the grid instead, as other users suggested me.

    Slice Tool

    Hi, I'm having an issue with the Slice Tool. When I create the frames that I want to export in the Export Persona, the app sends me to File were I have to select a folder. Then I press "Select" and "Done", but nothing happens. I'm not able to export any slice. Can you please help me? Thank you

    Moving objects in Affinity Designer for iPad

    Guys, I know you are very busy but nothing has changed and this problem is really freaking me out. I can't work like this. If it will not be improved I will start searching for another vector app on the iPad (even if I really don't want, because my workflow is based on Affinity softwares now!). My suggestions to solve this problem are: A) The Move Tool must be able EXCLUSIVELY to move things, otherwise it will keep deforming the shapes you are trying to move and that's #@‘ç[¶%* frustrating. And if you want to modify the shape you can use the Node Tool - or another tool that you can add. Or B) When you have to Move Tool selected you will be able to move the shape just if you click and drag outside the shape body (like in Procreate) and, if you want to modify the shape, you click on the shape body. So you will not accidentally modify the shape like it's happening now! Please, make it happen. My ideal solution would be B, but any solution would be greatly appreciated anyway. Thank you
  18. Hi, Every time I have to start editing a raw file, I struggle to fix the distortion or to resize it to a specific point because in Develop Persona I'm not able to add or move the Rulers. Can you please make it possible to do? It would be amazing to be able to use the Rulers without going back and forth from Photo Persona and Develop Persona. Thank you! EDIT: this would be great in Affinity Photo for iPad as well
  19. Hi! I'm having troubles adding guides on different artboards: sometimes they appear outside of the artboards and I can't move them, and even when they appear instide it's impossible to move them. (Please delete the post if this bug is already known) Thank you!
  20. Hi guys! I hope this wasn't a question somebody asked before - I've checked the forum and couldn't find anything about. So, what I'm here to ask is if in the future would be possible to open the .procreate file into Affinity Designer and Photo! That would be amazing and would speed up my workflow a lot, instead of exporting .PSD files. I've asked the Procreate guys and they told me you are good friends so it may be possible, but that I have to ask you because is not up to them You two are the main competitors to Adobe: if your app will become compatible between each other it would be a HUGE point in your favour! Please do it! Do it! Do it! Thank you and best regards, Matteo
  21. Hello, I'm using Affinity Designer for sketching and I noticed that in Pixel Persona using the Paint Brush Tool with an alpha background results in a very "jagged" line (see first pic), doesn't matter which brush I'm using. This is solved by adding a white background pixel layer: since that the lines comes out super smooth and precise (see second pic), even if you delete the white background or you set it to "invisible". Can you solve it? Thanks! (I hope to have expressed myself in a comprehensible way!)

    Full Screen Bug

    Hi guys, (if this bug has already been noticed, please delete this post!) Sometimes when I open a project and I press the green dot to open it full screen, it start making strange things (like images appearing and disappearing, changing size etc...). In that case I have to restart the app. That doesn't happens if I enlarge the app to full screen and than I open a project. I work on a MacBook Pro 2015 with macOS Sierra 10.12.6 (16G1314) and the version of Affinity Designer is 1.6.1 Thank you, Matteo
