  1. Very useful tutorial! Many thanks, Steve. Question: didn't AD use to have a spiral tool?
  2. Very nice short video! Well done. One recommendation: perhaps no music in the background as it makes it a bit more difficult to understand your words. Many thanks for taking the time to do this video (and others)! -=Rick
  3. Is it possible to terminate an ongoing and time consuming procedure if I don't want it to continue. For instance, some boolean procedures, such as add or combine, take a very long time to complete - 5, 10, or 15 or more minutes. How can I terminate this procedure before completion so that I can do something else in Designer for iPad? As it is, the slow procedure just blocks me using Designer for quite a while. In actuality, the geometric drawing I am currently working on is not all that complex. It is mystery to me why these procedures take so long. There are no hard drive memory constraints on the iPad Pro - there is plenty of hard drive space. The Boolean Add procedure that I am currently struggling with has been going on for 15 minutes now and designer is still working on it. A bit frustrated, here. Just want to end the procedure and move on to other tasks! -=Rick
  4. Hi Dan C, thanks for your help with this. It is difficult to achieve locational precision without the ability to nudge a node or a selection. So, for me, it is important.
  5. Hi Dan C, Thanks for your help with this matter. Yes, it definitely needs rulers!
  6. Fingers or the Apple Pencil only provide a certain amount of precision. I need to be able to nudge a node similar to what the arrow keys do on a computer. Not sure how to do this on an iPad. Many thanks!
  7. I do detailed drawings in iPad Pro Affinity Designer and need those rulers, but can't find them anywhere. This is pretty basic, so I apologize if it is right in front of my nose! -=Ricjk
  8. Hi Jason, Thanks for your blog, and your artwork. Really enjoyed it. But something remains a mystery. From my point of view, everything you did, including all the work in CSP or ProCreate (or Concepts), can so easily be done in the iPad Pro version of Affinity Designer. For me, the iPad Pro version of AD just immediately made these other programs obsolete. It is easy to import or create your own brush styles, and working with vectors is as easy as moving the Pencil across the screen. And it very straightforward to organize objects into groups, and then more groups. I don't really even think of layers anymore, I just group things to keep the overall drawing organized, and then of course organize objects (brushstrokes, shapes, etc) into what goes on top and what goes below. But this group 'layering' is group specific. So when you mentioned how difficult it was to manage layers on the iPad, I wondered if I am just missing something. I, too, deal with thousands of individual objects. And I guess I wonder why you are still working with several different programs, each of which seems to me to be just a small part of AD? Please don't think I am criticizing your work method - I am not. This is a real question rooted in my own experience with AD and other iPad design programs. Thanks, Rick
  9. Most commonly, a color gradient needs to follow a curve, such as the fender of a car or the curved edge of a cloud. How do I get gradients to do this and not follow the usual linear, conical, or round formats? Thanks for any help with this. -=Rick
  10. I am VERY interested in a tool for Affinity Designer that would work the same as the 'Knife" tool in Adobe Illustrator. That is, it would separate and trim complex vector designs. So, for instance, a vector circle could be divided into two vector half circles, both half circles being complete but separate vector objects. So if you needed to trim 100 circles all into half circles, then you could do it all at once, and very quickly. Currently, this ability does not exist in AD, so I have to manually trim all the various vector objects at the edge of a vector drawing. If this is available in AD 1.6 please let me know. If it is coming up, that would be great to know and look forward to as well. Thanks, Rick

  13. I am VERY interested in a serious version of Affinity Designer that would be functional (advanced functional) on the iPad Pro. The iPad pro is great, but there are few serious programs for it other than Affinity Photos, which I have. Many of the design programs are very Lite. But I really need to do serious design work on my iPad pro and hope that Affinity Designer has a future on the iPad Pro platform. Thanks, Rick
  14. One item that I have been looking for from the beginning is the equivalent of a 'knife' tool in Adobe Illustrator. The ability to trim a complex vector form along a line is very important for my design work and something that requires hours of work to do without a 'knife' tool. Does version 1.6 have this tool, or its equivalent?
