  1. Same for me - the new beta appears to want to install over my 1.6 install rather than the new Beta (as it's not named beta and listed separately in Test Flight).
  2. Sure! The problem might not have been this file, as upon trying now, a few days later, it seems to export fine. The only change is I’ve deleted and reinstalled Affinity Photo (to try and clear the space it was wasting which I highlighted in a different post) since then. See what happens for you though! pier_fog.afphoto
  3. That is super helpful, thank you! Ive already deleted and reinstalled the app, but if I notice it wasting space again I’ll try that first. I’ll be sure to let you know here what happens.
  4. This file crashes when I export using the share button (but not if you press okay and save to files) If the file wasn’t saved, data gets lost. 10.5” iPad Pro with Apple Pencil, iOS 12.1 with latest version of affinity photo. pier fog.afphoto pier_fog.afphoto
  5. Has anyone else found affinity photo on iPad wasting disk space? I had a small number of files open but iPad says affinity was taking up 8gb of documents and data. after closing them all it now says 5.6gb! Even though I have no files open, and all my files are saved to iCloud Drive. I cna five this by deleting affinity and re-downloading, but it seems like a colossal waste of space, especially on a 64gb iPad. Anyone else found this, or have a solution? kind regards, jethro
  6. I much prefer the old icon for the dock - it's more distinctive. The exciting thing about the Mac dock is that things don't have to be square (unlike iOS where uniformity makes everything look great - love your iOS icons btw). so opting for a square on the Mac feels boring (I'm looking at you Adobe CC). However, the square icons within the App (ie. in the top left of the window) works alright. I feel your triangle app icons look more professional.
  7. Can we have shortcuts integration? Could be a really powerful way to batch process files. From renaming and resizing, to automatically starting a macro, or series of them! (also can we have macro recording?) Imaginary scenario: imaging using a shortcut from the shortcuts widget to open a file picker, pick some photos and then have Affinity Photo auto crop, resize them all and export them for web! i think shortcuts cuts could be really powerful and a great integration for Affinity apps. For an example of what I’ve been doing, see this one which takes a panoramic and auto splits it into squares, ready for your Instagram carousel!
  8. I’d love to see better consistency within the Affinity apps. Small things like the order of buttons make a real difference. Almost everwhere, the cancel button is first and then the confirm button is on the right. Unless you press Save A Copy. (See buttons) on iPad I so quickly skip around the interface because it is so intuitive, but a small change like this can throw me. Seems small, but makes a big difference. My other UI gripe is some buttons are either in strange places or don’t make sense. 1. Why do I have to close a document to save it it place? I only have save a copy when the document is open. I’d like to be able to quickly save. (I’ve had documents crash before and I’ve lost the data because I didn’t hit save ever. Kinda my fault, but I think this could help) 2. Why can I lock and hide layers in two places? This is not a bad thing but feels confusing. Means I forget where certain settings are and doesn’t help set a precedent for where I should find certain types of settings. 3. Why is rasterise not in the generic layer menu? (And can the layer menu not auto hide after rasterising? Or should I pin it to stop this behaviour?) 4. When resizing the canvas, can we have the nice transform square from the transform menu rather than the text-based popout? I know my right from left, but that square is so much easier to understand and edit Note: the first four pictures are related to the cancel/action button order These small gripes make me sound incompetent but I’m not! Haha. I say these because I love the apps and want them to be better.
  9. Yes! and could duplicate be added to the tap&hold menu? (See attached) I think that might feel quicker than going to the menu and tapping duplicate
  10. Yes please! It would be so nice to have quick access to this.
  11. crashes when opening files that have a master applied to a page when that master has a picture inside. I've attached the problematic file. I tried applying a master to a page when that master has just a text frame inside, and that did not cause a crash - just when it had an image in the master. MacOS 10.13.6 paper crasher.afpub
