  1. Hi @GabrielM, thanks for pointing to the right post. This workaround actually fixed the problem! Though I think the developers still should try to fix it. Deleting system files is always a risky thing, that can break stuff quite fast.
  2. Hi! If someone is also still looking for this problem and thinks about trying it. Following these steps still helped to fix the problem with: macOS 10.14.4 Affinity Designer v1.6.1 + Affinity Photo v1.6.7 I tried it today. Thanks!
  3. Hello, I recently noticed a bug in the file handling using Affinity Designer on macOS (v1.6.1) and iPad (v1.6.4.45). Once I create a document on my iPad, sync it via iCloud Drive, and double click it on my mac it automatically opens Affinity Photo. Steps to reproduce: Create a document on Affinity Designer iPad Safe the file (with the option activated to safe to iCloud Drive) There will be a new folder created in iCloud Drive named "Affinity Designer" with the file inside Open the file on macOS using double click Affinity Photo opens instead of Designer The strange thing is that the iCloud Drive folder is named "Affinity Designer", but has the Photo app icon on it. Also the newly created files are all set to open with Affinity Photo in the Finder's info panel, hence Designer is the default. When I try to change it back to Designer nothing happens. (as seen in the attachment) Seems like a system problem, but I guess there might be something wrong the way the iPad creates the iCloud Drive connection? Does anyone else have this problem? Or is there a way to fix it? Kind regards, Alex Screen Recording.mp4
  4. Thanks for the video. At least now I know the difference. Though I think this could be much more clarified with better labelling. I still think "opening" a file should sync changes automatically back to (and also get changes from) the "Files" app. That would make a true difference and a faster workflow.
  5. Ahh, thanks! Never expected it to be there.
  6. Hey, I've just started using both Affinity Designer and Photo on iPad. I think both apps should better integrate with Apple's "Files" extension/app! This should lead to an easier cross platform and app exchange. The current solution with "open from cloud" and "import from cloud" are confusing and don't work as I would expect. My idea was that using the "open" option it just saves any changes I made directly back to the "Files" app (no matter if the document is located in iCloud Drive, Dropbox, iPad or some other location). There could be a little icon next to the document (in the overview), that indicates that it is linked/located to the "Files" app. So you can easily distinguish between app documents and documents in the Cloud (or any other location). In this case the wording of "close" (in the popup menu of the document overview) would also make more sense. When "importing" the file I would expect that the app creates a copy of the document inside the app. To save it back to "Files" I would have to press the "Save" button in the document overview. I tested it and this isn't the case. What is the actual difference between "open from cloud" and "import from cloud"? The icons are also extremely confusing to spot a difference. Thanks for making great Pro software available on iPad! Cheers! PS: Hope the label translations are right, as I use Affinity in German.
  7. Actually there isn't a way to duplicate layers – or did I miss something? I don't think that a duplicate button should be located next to the help (and undo/redo) button. Though it should be added in the layers panel and maybe as option if you tap and hold on a layer.

    Rearrange UI

    I wish I could rearrange the right side of the tools (layers, effects, typo, …), because I think the layers panel is way too hidden in this toolbar. It should be at the very top if you ask me. But sure, anyone uses it differently.

    Split screen

    Depends on your workflow! And more options are always better. You may want to use Affinity Photo and Designer side by side or always show a reference image without overlapping the UI.

    German translation

    I was also confused the first time I used the Affinity apps on iPad. I think labelling delete as "close" isn't the best way.
