  1. Hello, maybe I haven't digged myself enough through the tutorials yet, but I'm missing a feature to move a selection by 1 or 10 pixels into (maybe) the for main directions. Procreate has solved this quite elegantly and intuitive and another app (forgot which but I'm sure I saw it somewhere) just had some cursor-buttons at some place on the GUI.
  2. Hello, I really, really love Designer from the second I saw its announcement but having issues with one of the main functions: drawing vectors. I'm using a 1st Gen iPad Pro 12,9", newest iOS. Maybe it's a performance issue but: 1. Whenever I draw with the pen tool I really have problems placing points for my path. For instance I draw some structure like hair on a character, I place one point at one position and place the next point which then wouldn't react. It feels like when close to another point, chances are higher, that nothing would happen, but it also feels like there might be additionally some kind of lag going on. Like after some attempts of pushing wit the Apple Pencil at that position, it would at some random event finally place the point. 2. this behavior adds to the second issue: My path get's seemingly randomly closed. Like I'm drawing my shape and while drawing the path point by point it would finish drawing the path at some point and create a new path at another point. So it would look like a path, but consisting of more than one separate paths. These things happen on a completely blank layer, so I don't really think it has to do with performance as Designer generally seems to run very (surprisingly) good on this iPad Pro. But I will reboot, relaunch and try around a bit more, maybe I can fix something by that. It's a bit sad as I was so curious about a finally good path-drawing app on the iPad Pro and now I'm way more impressed about how useful the Pixel-persona is to me; Procreate start's sobbing. Anyone else had any of these issues? cheers, val
  3. As Unsplash.com has grown quite big up to a point that actually lets you search for specific terms and even find something, I'd love to see it integrated into the Stocks-panel of AP. Why unsplash? Because it would be the only image archive offering license-free images only that you can still use commercially. wouldn't it be nice, thanks guys! ;)
  4. Hi folks; maybe this already exists somewhere and I wasn't able to find it by now, if not, then consider this to be a request: When I'm drawing something inside Illustrator, I can hit SPACEBAR to readjust the position of my point or shape as I'm drawing. This was one of the first things I missed when trying out Affinity. It's not like drawing a point, hitting a, changing its position and then continue drawing would be such a bug deal, but that Spacebar-thing really helps getting into Hyperflowmode. Something that AD is usually quite good at :) So keep it coming guys, cheers
