  1. Many Chinese characters that are specifically used in Hong Kong and Cantonese regions cannot be displayed. This happens only on the iPad versions but not the desktop counterparts. Sample text copied from: https://zh-yue.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/粵字
  2. Agree this would be a very useful (and sometimes essential) function to have in a vector program. But since Affinity does not have an interest in developing this by ignoring the request for years, I guess they think using power duplicates to create patterns is superior to a pattern swatch?
  3. I don't know if this has been posted before. Please delete this thread if it has. Steps to reproduce this bug: 1. Create an artboard. 2. Set any artboard fill color (e.g. white). 3. Throw in a few shapes with a contrasting color (e.g. black, so you will see what happen next). 4. Skew the shapes. 5. Apply "Invert Adjustment" on the artboard. 6. Lock children. 7. Resize the artboard and see the shapes dance like crazy. 8. Shapes altered by the bug stay, undo may or may not resolve the problem.
  4. Ok, I know what exactly happened. I tried to open .afdesign / .afphoto files using the import from cloud function. And it seems Apple currently doesn't allow importing files from Google drive which I used to store all my work. Only after I saved the files onto iCloud drive they could be imported...
  5. I just found out I can't even open afphoto files (saved natively from the iPad AP app). p.s. Even sharing a photo to AP from my photos app is impossible now, AP is nowhere to be found (neither in "more")
  6. I'm not sure if it is a file issue... ALL afdesign files are greyed out in the import from cloud window.
  7. I could load afdesign files on the iPad affinity photo app some weeks ago but it seems disabled now. Did I miss anything?
  8. There is currently no way to choose font weights? Am I missing something?
  9. Hi there, I am a designer from Hong Kong. I have just purchased AD 1.5.4 for macOS and have trouble choosing Chinese fonts. I use both English and Chinese fonts. In most other softwares with text-input function, the Chinese fonts are usually grouped together and displayed in Chinese font names (so as fonts in other languages). The Chinese fonts do have their respective English names, but we (users in HK/Taiwan) seldom need to recognise them due to the above reason. Now in AD all Chinese fonts are mixed into the English fonts while displaying English names that are unfamiliar to us. Please see the following screenshots for the difference between AD and AI. Highlighted is the same Chinese font.
