  1. I have developed an interesting quirk with v2. At home, if i connect to another machine, while designer is running - and then go on the road with the laptop - any attempt to open or save documents (that were not attached in any way i can see to said other machines) takes forever as designer tries in vain to find the connected machine and wont let go for nearly 3 -4 minutes. Which really causes a workflow slowdown 🙂 Any ideas? So far it is only designer that does this to me (although i do use it the most) Thanks!
  2. Greetings, When attempting to export an image “selection only” and it has a hsl filter in its group, it doesn’t save as selection only, but a shape the size of the art board instead. Rasterizing causes it to work correctly. FYI. This was the case in publisher as well as designer on iPad Pro iOS 16
  3. Greetings. I used the warp tool on a group of text objects (works wonderfully). However, when printed, it appears as though some of the text is “through” the 2d plane (has bottom corner cut off- see below). this is on a MacBook Pro (m1 max). There is often some amount of “screen tearing” when moving/ zooming as well (a lot more than on an intel iMac). More so in photo I guess, might be I notice due to amount of usage. Anyway. FYI
  4. The symptom that shows that it’s going to explode is the slightly disconnected triangle as seen circled below.
  5. After some experimentation, it appears that where you hold your finger down for that second menu matters, as I have just gotten it to work properly. The issue happens when you tap and hold in between buttons.
  6. If, in any affinity app (latest update) you three finger swipe while having an object selected - then hold down a finger in the middle of that menu you get an additional menu (as seen in attached). Any attempt to use it results in a app explosion in which everything dies. fyi
  7. Greetings Affinity! Good job so far! Don't let the whiners get you down! Just a few things i've found in my playing with designer on ipad (ipadpro 12.9 3rd gen - ios 16) >When you swipe three fingers and get the new contextual menu (LOVE this idea) when you hold a finger down, and get the additional list - any click on that additional list leads to a app crash. >After adding all my fonts to v2 (thanks alot apple). i found a it strange, that when i select said added font, the "name" in the text menu on the side and at the top is incomprehensible - looks like Chinese writing. (used ios to try to translate - it came up with ??????) and now for the "gee, let me see how far i can go to break things" category > step 1, place/embed (on an ipad! wow!) a older affinity file of a vector pumpkin i drew for a project last year. >step 2, place a filled box underneath. >step 3 - decide to try a mesh distort on said embedded afdesign file. >>result - see attached 🙂 All in all great effort here guys! Just a few loose ends to tidy up and we are gold! Thanks all! Scott
  8. Greetings! Happy Affinity Day! I do have a question, as i am diving into all the new stuff. What is the prescribed process of "upgrading" the ipad apps? (in a way that doesn't lose any previous work that is) I assume, if one deletes the version 1 app, its file directory will be deleted as well? Is it as simple as copying (if it lets me) all of the previous work from the v1 folder to the v2 folder? Or are there some hidden "gotchas"? Any thoughts?
  9. Greetings, i am creating a small booklet in Publisher. My problem? When i print the pages double sided, the back side prints "upside down" - no matter what i try to do (short of rotating the back 180 degrees. Any idea as to why its doing this? Thanks for any help!
  10. May sound like a stupid question, but how (performance/memory wise), does leaving files open (the thumbnails when you first open the app) affect photos performance? I ask because for the first time I have experienced some performance issues, trying to figure out the cause (the iPad is not close to being full) thanks!
  11. To get a better idea of what was aiming for - look at “quick menu” in procreate. Pretty good/simple approach to making shortcuts to things you normally have to hunt/peck for
  12. Greetings! This has been an intermittent bug for me. when creating artboards and then "continually" saving them out as pings the export persona adds an extra pixel to their dimension. for instance, i created an artboard for a 1024x1024 web image. to straight export it saves as 1024x1024. to use the export persona is makes it 1025x1025 (with no way to adjust it) FYI
  13. I LOVE a designer for iPad, but one of the biggest things I miss are “shortcut keys”. I know you can attach a “real keyboard”- but it’s often unwieldy. I don’t know why the software keyboard doesn’t have the command key either... but I was wondering - could there not be a system that essentially gives you quick access to predetermined operations with just a 2 or 3 finger touch? That would speed up things significantly for me. I kind of envision a preferences panel that allows you to perhaps custom set 3-5 often used operations that can then be accessed directly on the screen by say a long tap with three fingers, kind of like the “right click” approach?
  14. upon further reflection, it might have been the small app "Magnet" i was using that caused the issue. It was also killing Notification Center. Since i've updated it though things are playing nice. So far...
  15. funny story. I had some big sur issues that lead to me having to boot off the restore partition and do disk first aid. NOW the problem is "fixed". Go figure... I do have one small request to add on this subject though. Is it possible to have the value input box on "feather" (and others operations like it) auto selected when you hit the shortcut key? I have to mouse to it and click to change the value. Thats nothing new, its been that way from the beginning for me 🙂 Thanks!
