  1. Thank you for the tip! I didn’t know this one but it was not what I ment. In the meantime I figuret out how to draw a circle with a thin line. I use the shape tool and choose for donut. If I put the hole radius to 98 I get the line thickness I want! (I used Photoshop for ages but that doesn’t work at the iPad and now it so much fun to work with AP.) Thanks a lot everyone!
  2. Hi, maybe it isn’t possible but I just like to know and I hope I can explain what I’m looking for: I like to know if it is possible, just the way I draw a straight line with the pen tool and put the Width at 5 pt. to make a circle with the Elliptical Marquee Tool (persona selections) and do the same. So it will be still a circle when I deselect the dot line. (To make a circle with the pen tool is to difficult.) I work at the iPad Pro with Affinity Photo.
  3. Save and Export from Pixelmator is possible in 4 ways: pxm, png, psd and jpeg. So I cann’t export in .pdf
  4. Hi, I love to work with Affinity at the iPad Pro 12”. Before I had Affinity I was working in Pixelmator. Now I was drawing in Affinity and needed te watercolor brush. Sorry to say but only these brushes are in Pixelmater much better. So I started to draw in Affinity, put the drawing into the Cloud and than I swiched to Pixelmator, loaded the file and everything was oke so I used the watercolor brush at several layers and uploaded the file again into the Cloud, as a psd file. I start Affinity and loaded the file from the Cloud but this time I got a message in Affinity that “the psd file could not be parsed because the offsets within the file were incorrect”. This is also when I make the file a png. The only way I can work with the file is when I upload the file in Pixelmator as a jpeg file but than I loose all the layers. Is there a way to download the file included the layers from Pixelmator?
  5. I've tryed several things with the pen and I think that I push to hard when I put the pentip at the screen. Because drawing with a thin line asks more of my concentration. Thank you for your help, when you mentioned the long press for colour picker I thought of the pressure when starting a thin line!
  6. I use AP since the iPad Pro 12" and never had this problem before. Let me explain: I would like to draw a thin line at a new layer. I use the brush basic 4 pnt and choose black (or any other colour When I place the pen at the tablet I get a magnifying circel with pixels and the colour turns into the background colour. I thought I needed a new pen point but when I chagend it, I had the same issue. Please let me know what the solution is, it drives me crazy!
  7. How about this issue? It's so frustrating to try to move a layer! I'm working with Affinity Photo on an iPad 12" and use v. Please let us know if there is any chance Affinity Photo can fix this and if so, when will the update be? Thanks in avance!

    Amazing work! Did you do this on a Mac or at an iPad? I just found out the possibility to duplicate and automatic rotate a layer so that's a start isn't it? The only thing I'm struggeling with is to group a bunch of layers. (I'm working at an iPd Pro 12")
  9. I have also a color issue too! When painting in Affinity Photo at my iPad Pro 12.9, I use the color wheel or at the brush the circle with the color. I want to use real black or white after using an other color for instance red but there will be a shade of red. The same is at the other colors, after using yellow it is a bit beige and blue and green has the same effect. So black is never real deed black and white not realy white. How do I get real black and white?
  10. Hi, since a few months I use Affinity Photo at the iPad Pro. What a good product this is! I use it mostly for painting, design birthdaycards and so. The brushes are wonderful and I love them. The only thing I miss are the shapes, I know there are a some but I miss the swirls a lot. (Yes, I know I can draw them with the Pen Tool!) Maybe there is a possibility to import them from the cloud? Or maybe you can put this import from the cloud at the wish list, not only for the shapes but also for others tools. Thanks for doing a great job!
