  1. I can confirm, it happens to me too. I'll try to find steps to reproduce it. In fact, I remember having all the pressure sensitivity disabled (in the bottom dock bar and in the brush settings), and it still changed somehow (with the brush size set to same diameter as before, but produced a smaller footprint).
  2. Feels great to get acknowledgement straight from the team One other suggestion, if you guys are seriously going to address this "feature request". Maybe have an option in the brush settings you could toggle on and off (that gets persisted along with the rest of the brush's properties) in order to keep the existing brushes backwards compatible? With something like: - [ ] Absolute Tilt Control (if enabled, makes it go from 0-100%; 0% when parallel, and 100% when orthogonal to the screen; disabled keeps the current behavior) - [ ] Full Range Angle Control (if enabled, makes it go from 0-50% if rotating the tilted pencil from 0° to 360°, 0° being tilted against left side of the screen) Also, dm me if you need extra hands (I'm an ios / cocoa engineer), would be more than happy and honored to tackle this with you.
  3. I've been trying to recreate a simple pencil brush which would utilize the Apple Pencil. I got everything already set up: based on a round brush made a nice repetitive high contrast rough paper texture for the brush texture (works wonderfully) stylus tilt controlling: the diameter of the brush (having it orthogonal to the screen produces a sharp trace, whereas tilting it makes the diameter bigger at a certain threshold) shape (following the same curve as the brush diameter; when non-tilted, it produces a nice round shape, tilting the pen produces a narrow/elliptical trace, again, when it goes over a certain threshold) stylus angle controlling: brush rotation (when the stylus is tilted and as it produces a narrower trace, it should rotate with the angle of the stylus) stylus pressure controlling: the hardness of the brush (if you're shading, pressing it gently will produce a nice subtle narrow trace; as you press it harder, the trace becomes more pronounced) Now, the problem I've been having is that Affinity Photo for iPad is interpreting the stylus input controls differently than expected. Let's go over the tilt control first. How the tilt control should work: having the stylus orthogonal to the screen should read value = 0% tilting the stylus down in any direction (any angle) should increase value > 0% having the stylus almost parallel to the screen should read value = 100% How the tilt control works now: having the stylus orthogonal to the screen reads value = 50% tilting the stylus down to bottom part of the screen (parallel to it) reads value = 100% tilting the stylus to the left or right part of the screen (parallel to it) reads value = 50% tilting the stylus to the top part of the screen (parallel to it) reads value = 100% Now let's go over the angle control of the stylus. How the angle control should work (controlling the rotation which I think goes from 0-50%?): having the stylus tilted to the right part of the screen should read value = 0% (which is 0°) having the stylus tilted to the bottom part of the screen should read value = 12.5% (which is 90°) having the stylus tilted to the left part of the screen should read value = 25% (which is 180°) having the stylus tilted to the top part of the screen should read value = 37.5% (which is 270°) The way how the angle is read in the current implementation is hard to describe, I'll try to make a video or an output it produces. But it definitely doesn't map the degrees of direction the stylus is tilted to the brush rotation.
