  1. Hi Alfred, I could not get my head around the converting to curves bit but understood what you meant about bitmap fill, was very surprised it just worked ! I feel you may have uncovered a “crossover” between pixel and vector work that was never intended but yet may have future uses, well done !
  2. This is what Alfred meant, I never knew about it and I’m still not sure if it is of much use but I guess it depends on your use case. My project (17).mp4
  3. Hi Rob, Change slider (1) if you don’t have any artboards to change the desktop grey level. (or if you are using Affinity Photo) Change slider (2) if you have used artboards to adjust the desktop behind the artboard’s grey level. BR Paul
  4. The Knife tool is for cutting vector shapes not pixel layers. Use the selection tool if you want to dissect a pixel layer. EDIT: Added demo of how to use the selection tools on pixel layers. RPReplay_Final1708606798.mov
  5. The key to shear with apple pencil is, first make sure shape is selected in layers panel, then you need to do a single tap near the edge you want to shear, then you can do the shear action. Quick demo RPReplay_Final1708583724.mov
  6. As Alfred states, easy to create presets for A2,A1, A0 paper sizes, to be honest V1 included such presets but to create the missing ones in V2 only takes a few minutes even on the iPad version of Affinity Publisher.
  7. I made the assumption that @ashr (as a newbie to the forums) actually wanted similar to info panel to be able to replicate a colour and that can be achieved all be it slightly more complicated as my video shows. The efforts involved calculating % yellow is interesting but not what the op really wanted to know in my personal opinion.
  8. As @stokerg mentions the iPad lacks the info panel but the workaround is to make sure you have nothing selected in the layers panel, then use the colour studio eye dropper to pick the colour and tap the selected colour to show its makeup. Quick demo. RPReplay_Final1708420122.mov
  9. As Alfred states, change to this setting on the assistant options and your adjustment will only affect your selected layer.
  10. See this article on how to make an IOS Shortcut called “Open in Affinity Photo” that can be used from the share sheet in Apple Photos or Lightroom etc that might help. One thing to be aware of is that iPadOS does not allow “round tripping” to Apple Photos as you can easily do in macOS. So you are restricted to editing a photo then sharing back to Photos the edited version as a new file, unlike macOS which allows you to save back to the original file you opened.
  11. That never happens for me. Whenever an iPad misbehaves, it is always worth trying first to close all open apps, then do a Forced Restart (not simply a restart) as per apple’s instructions. https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/ipad/ipad9955c007/ipados
  12. @jdval Here is my next shot at guessing what you want, and it involves links, here I link to layers so that the are transformed in the same way, then i create another link of their opacity so that if one changes the other one does as well. Sorry if this is not right then you are going to need to screen record or add some examples of what you are trying to do. In this demo I create links of various kinds between 2 layers, I hope it is clear. RPReplay_Final1707952165.mov
  13. Ah link is not the correct word, I think you may be trying to “clip” or “nest” one object inside another. To do that you need to position the elements on screen on top of each other, then in the layers panel drag and lift one object up and to the right of the other object then let go.

  14. 1. Ah ok, I assumed you were talking of vectors shapes and curves which was not clear from your post. Although Photo has some support for vectors Affinity Designer has more appropriate tools like merge curves for placing multiple vector shapes on the same layer. However you can use the geometry functions to manipulate vector shapes into a single layer eg using ADD shown here. 2. If you are working with pixel shapes not vectors then you can rasterise your any vector areas and then use merge down and merge selected options on the layers studio to place objects on the same pixel layer. Quick example of house pixel layers can be combined into a single layer. RPReplay_Final1707937175.mov RPReplay_Final1707936482.mov
