  1. Pffff.... glad to read that more people have issues with AP. I’m working at the iPad Pro with AP 1.7.0135 and I’m very pleased with this programm but today is was a desaster. I wasn’t able to upload my work to the Cloud, the upload wheel kept turning and the only thing I could do was to close AP. After restarting AP I lost the changes I made. After a few try outs at last the file was in the Cloud. At resizing an item the layer freezes while the rectangle is at the new place but the resized item is still at the old place. Hope you understand what I’m trying to say. I’m sure AP will fix this and than I’m happy again with this wonderful programm. Thank you!
  2. Maybe I misunderstand you but all my work I save it by “export” and choose where I want to locate the file. (Mostly in the Cloud.) When I want to change the file I’ll choose at de screen New Document the button “From iCloud” and download it. I never use “save”. Working with Affinity Photo at the iPad Pro 12”.
  3. Made in Affinity Photo at the iPad Pro. Thank you guys for this wonderful programn. Wishing you all a Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year from the Netherlands!

    Move layer

    Hi, I have a little problem and maybe one of you can give me the solution, I work with the iPod Pro, with iOS 12. I work with layers and sometimes I need to replace a layer. I activate the layer and drag it down to the right place. So far so good. But if I drag the layer and accidentely put it at a wrong place (down) and need to put it back (above) I cann’t drag it up. So the layers stucks at the wrong place. Anybody????

    Move layer

    Has there be a certain time to replace it again?

    Move layer

    Yes, the two finger tap lift it up, so the layer is at his old place again, but when I want to drag it again to right the place below it will not move.

    cannot select and move an object

    Beware of it: this solution is for Affinity Designer NOT Affinity Photo!! So I hope de developers will fix it for Photo too!!!

    Move tool keeps transforming

    I have the same problem but in Aff. Photo. This tip will not work in Photo, I have to zoom in and tip the object with the pencil, than I can move it.
  9. Hi, today I used the heart shape in Affinity Photo at my iPad Pro. When I use the shapes I only get them colored but I like to have a line/contour of the shape. I cann't find it to change the shape. Is this possible? If so, how can I draw a shape with only a line?

    Shape only with a line

    Thank you guys, you're amazing helpers!!! I did it.....

    Shape only with a line

  12. Hi there, for a project I do need to draw some Chinese words, in caracters it is. For some reason I cann't find the correct brush. I know it can be done with pressure of the pen but I want the caracters more with 'vector based' lines. Is that possible?

    Fractal in AP iPad

    Still learning AP at the iPad and I discover a lot! But there are so many questions...... Anyway, sometimes a question solves itself by working and playing and if not, I'll search at this forum or I'll ask you guys. This fractal was a study to see what is possible with AP. I did figured out how to work with rectangle tools and the layers but not how to rotate and resize my layer in % so I did every layer with assessment. (At the iMac it is cntr/alt/cmd + T and set the % of height and rotation.) The result:
  14. Can I add shapes (.csh) to Affinity Photo for the iPad Pro? I have several shapes in the iCloud and I like to use them in Affinity. Is that possible?

    Free Brush Set for Sketching

    For iPad Pro? How can I download them and add them to AP for the iPad?
  16. Nicely done! About the dot-problem, there is another treath at this forum for that issue but I don't know if there is a solution yet.

    My first work in AP

    Thanks jer for your comment! Sorry about the delay with my answer. About the gradient: is isn't really a gradient but two colors with a blur. I still have to figure out about the gradients. I did some retouching as you can see, the ripple at the sun glow into the water and coloured the tips of the wing. Now I'm satisfied and leave it as it is. So much more to explore!

    My first work in AP

    What a joy to play with AP! Well, I'm not a professional disigner or painter or anything else, I just love to draw. The things I see you guys make are incredible! Maybe in my next life I'll can do that too. For now this is it:

    First drawing with AP on iPad!

    Very cute! I also like digital drawing and AP is wonderful for this! I just started to learn the program so there is a lot to discover for me! Hope one day I can do this too! Hope to see more work from you!

    Introduce Yourself

    Hi, I'm Ashcat, well that's my nickname, and new to AP and this forum. I've been working with Adobe Photoshop about 20y but they haven't a good app for the iPad. Missed chance for them and lucky for the AP guys! I'm totally impressed about this app. I'm using it for editing my photos and I love to draw. Two complete programs in one! But there is a lot to explore for me. Hope we all have a lot of fun and I wish the moderators and developers a lot of success with all the questions they surely get these days! Love from the Netherlands. (By the way, can I change the topic to newest post first on my screen?)

    Unnamed Layers on iPad

    WoW, this was what I'm looking for, for several hours..... I tapped and clicked everywere but not at the word Pixel. Now I'm happy again and will go on with my drawings at the iPad Pro 12,9" As I'm new to AP, I had to figure out a lot and always thinking what's that called or placed in Photoshop? (iMac) Now I have been working several hours at the iPad and the AP becomes a kind of "homecoming" to me. I'm very pleased, you did a great job with this app.

    Apple Pencil not working properly

    For I'm totally new to Affinity I had to figure out a lot, looked at the tutorial and that's how I knee the pen should work. As by Enrique the pen didn't draw at all but after tapping at the screen (iPad Pro 12,9") the program reconized the pen. YESSS! For me there is no issue of the palm yet but I have to be careful because of the suddenly zooming. So now I can start learning and learning, over and over again! I used to work in Photoshop CS6 at the iMac but I cann't carry that one with me and the Photoshop app is to slight. For drawing I use Pixelmator at the iPad untill now because Affinity was recommended by iCulture as "the app to have" for editing photo's AND drawings. So two programs in one! If there is a possibility to use the iPad connected to the iMac, like a Wacom tablet, I'll buy the iMac version too and my love for your app will never die...... :) Love from The Netherlands, Ashcat
