  1. If each microbe is a shape, using a bitmap would likely give the best result. There are multiple ways of adding a bitmap to a shape from simple clipping where you place an image on top of the shape on the screen and in the layers panel drag the bitmap onto the shape after suitable scale and rotation etc which will clip the bitmap to the shape. Alternatively you can apply a bitmap fill using the gradient tool, look to the context bar options. Finally you could probably use the effects studio to add an inner glow to each microbe.
  2. Looks like a Windows video driver problem, check for updates for your video card.
  3. I thought they posted a while back they were moved off Vimeo onto the serif servers?
  4. @Paul BuckinghamI am primarily an iPad user for AP so thought I would do some tests on the image you uploaded to the Serif forums after your question in my Affinity Photo Facebook group today. Firstly on the iPad the only way to load in a RAW image is by using open from cloud or open from photos. Here I opened from my photos album and successfully opened your image and correctly the develop persona is open ready for the develop stage. On my mac I tried to do the same thing on V1.8 and V1.9 beta and tried to use open from media option. What I found is I could not to find your image until I edited in Apple photos which creates a JPG version which then appears in the photo album. However naturally when opened it did not go to develop mode. Now on to your issue, when you use edit in AP it looks like it is trying to use a JPG version of an image (not just yours but my raw files too) rather than the RAW. So for RAW processing ‘Edit In’ appears to be useless as MACOS is NOT supplying the raw image to the application(any application?). It looks like you always need to export your unmodified originals to a folder to make the RAW image accessible to Affinity. In this respect, it looks like iPadOS is ahead of MACOS since as I described at the beginning the iPad was able to open the RAW image correctly directly. Sorry this is a bit long winded, and doesn’t really supply an solution for your workflow but may hint at what is going wrong in MacOS.
  5. If you can repeat the problem then you can report the bug here:- https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/79-photo-bugs-found-on-ipads/ Being in the cloud should be no difference than on your iPad, which cloud service were you using as there has been problems in the past with dropbox, google drive etc in the past but iCloud generally has been ok. If you uninstall the app then you would lose your projects work, assets etc, can you remember what you were doing to cause that to happen as it is not normal behaviour. Perhaps make a screen recording of it happening or if you have a corrupt file you can upload to the forums for the dev's to try and recover.
  6. On the context toolbar press the small white triangle and on the next screen make sure source is set to current layer and below, finally make sure you are on a pixel layer in the layers studio.
  7. I have stopped using any other suppliers onedrive, google, dropbox free services they all have had problems over the years and subscribe to 2TB iCloud instead. iCloud is the only service I use because of the many advantages over the other solutions especially the space they save on your device when optimise files is enabled, I have a first gen 128GB iPad Pro with 50GB free space but access to 41'000 photos occupying 256GB iCloud photos and 80GB iCloud documents. The fact that I can edit my projects via iCloud Drive on my PC or Mac versions of Affinity without having to transfer anything is brilliant.
  8. You can use CMD-X to remove selected items as a work around for the delete key not working.
  9. You could try opening on a desktop version if you have it, otherwise you could upload it here for others to see if they can open it and the Dev's to look at.
  10. The timelapse export function does not work on my first gen 9.7” iPad Pro. Tests so far export zero byte size files in iCloud or On My iPad folders. EDIT: I am on iPadOS 14.4 beta.
  11. Don't use the files app, try using Open from cloud option instead. EDIT: Can't see that camera on the Apple supported list. https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT211241
  12. HDR Merge works fine in my tests on iPad Pro first gen, did you try closing all apps and restarting your iPad or try a Forced Restart to fix it.
  13. I did a quick test on my first gen iPad Pro and panorama worked fine. Perhaps try closing all apps and restarting your iPad to see if that fixes your problem.
  14. No you must save your project files outside of the app, the best place would be in an iCloud folder that both devices can access. Under preferences change default save location to iCloud. On the Home Screen press the hamburger icon and name your file then tap save. On your new iPad use open from cloud option, browse to the Affinity folder in iCloud and open your file.
