  1. 🤣 I thought I was alone on this one! i actually have no idea when it actually started. I didn’t even notice it until yesterday during the edit of a text intensive file. That feeling when you finally look over from your Node Tool and actually type something…
  2. In the Text Studio of all my Affinity apps, the font names are all replaced with Chinese characters. The new appearance still includes the last letter of the English font name, so I don’t know if this is a glitch or a viral attack. The other apps on my iPad do not display a similar problem. My iPad language defaults to English. *I assume based on the Chinese characters I have experienced previously.
  3. Here is my experience with the Global Colors problem. Created a Document Palette. ‘Upon adding a Global Color to the palette, I can’t add another one. Why not? I’m in my newly created palette… Wrong. Menu says I’m in my created palette. I’m actually in Recents. I need to switch to my created palette, that the menu says I’m already in, in order to add more Global Colors. ‘I’m going to go ahead and call this a bug. Who’s with me? RPReplay_Final1670441685.mp4

  5. Dropping the object onto the thumbnail creates an Opacity Mask. Dropping an object into another creates a Clipping Mask.
  6. Oh boy! The version 2.0.2 update for iPad has downloaded and……..there’s still no Reverse button. ☹️
  7. With the suite of 3D software available for the iPad Pro, I find it equally easy to just create a 3D model in some cases. AD Mesh Warp is the next best thing. Both solutions complement each other well and fill each others gaps. All of this is the reason I barely touch the desktop version of my Affinity suite.
  8. If you want to put a logo on a 3D object, then why not just put it on a 3D object? 2C1983A7-137D-4A2B-8765-57FC8D1FF95B.mov
  9. I’m iPad Pro, so no Inkscape for me. I rely on Capture for the majority of my vector tracing. Vectornator is its closest competitor, and it is meh at the best of times. I know having the function built in could probably be a lot more convenient, but as a mobile user, I’m accustomed to switching apps in the name of limited memory management. Plus having one app dedicated to one thing minimizes the UI clutter in a lot of cases, imo Out of curiosity, where did Adobe Capture drop the ball for you? Was it being a standalone thing that got in the way? The UI? The Adobe trying to get you to use their cloud service for everything? Where’d they lose you? 🏈
  10. Until you win your state lottery, purchase Serif and fund the Trace project yourself, there’s always Adobe Capture.
  11. No, it isn’t. But if creating a placeholder Adobe account so that you can use Capture is just not something you’re into, Vectornator is that old package of cheese crackers in a house without food.
  12. …for the record, Adobe Capture is free to use also. the other benefit to having a standalone vector trace app is being able to capture (see what they did there?) stuff while being out and about. I can trace on my phone vs waiting to get back to my iPad/desktop. I actually hope that if Affinity ever gets around to autotrace, they give us a standalone mobile version of that as well. I can handle the launch day discount on that app too! 👍
  13. Fine. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/vectornator-graphic-design/id1219074514 …and it’s free.
  14. 😄 It’s nice to know I’m not the only one who prefers the iPad features/operation over the desktop version. I hope our Blue Bar returns soon!
  15. This is my one major complaint with ADV2. In V1, dragging an item into another item within the Layers panel was very clear: a blue bar appeared across the middle of the target item. In V2, hovering one item over another causes the blue bar to flicker above and below the item you are attempting to drag an item into. Is it going where I think it’s going? 🤷🏾‍♂️ The visual clue I have relied on for years is no longer available. It’s now a series of wild guesses. I’m still waiting on that Collapse All command in the Layers that will allow more efficient searches of the organized layers and groups my files contain. Collapsing all containers at once vs scroll scroll scroll scroll scroll scroll scroll scrollIng through the Layers in order to collapse containers manually so that I can find things easier. Hopefully you guys are still steering the car based on that Roadmap of yours!

  17. AD2, day one. My biggest hurdle so far has been the removal of the Trash Can delete button on the bottom left. Not the biggest fan of the full color icons yet either (give me back my monochrome interface!!!*), but I can work around it. But back to the subject of the Trash Can… I found it again thanks to the very convenient (but slightly hard to trigger) three-finger swipe down maneuver. So what was a habitual tap down to the bottom left is now a swipe down to bring up a common use menu. That bit helps immensely if you are working while standing, lying on the carpet, or even pacing in circles while thinking (my favorite). After discovering the gesture and it’s benefits, while also lamenting the loss of the bottom context menu, it suddenly hit me… 👆🏾👆🏾👆🏾+ swipe down = quick common use menu 👆🏾👆🏾👆🏾 + swipe up = quick context menu its the Context Menu from the bottom of the screen that SOME of us know and enjoy immensely, appearing wherever we make the gesture. It would allow me………😑 us to continue having a bit of interface that everyone………..🙄 just me has grown accustomed to without having this forum flooded with “it takes up too much of the screen! I can’t work! I keep resting my hand on it!! Adobe would never!” from the desktop crowd. *Update: I found the Monochrome interface setting. 😁
  18. Affinity Photo and current/former Adobe users: Is there any way to recreate the effect of the Adobe PS>Filter Gallery>Dry Brush using Affinity Photo? If anyone has insight into the Affinity version of Adobe’s Smart Blur, that would be appreciated as well. Basically, I’m trying to translate some PS Actions into AP Macros, but there are a couple of PS specific steps that I don’t know the Affinity equivalents for. Anyone that speaks both languages would be helpful. I also know that AP for iPad doesn’t create Macros. I’ll be translating on desktop to hand off to little sister on iPad. IMG_0430.MP4
  19. Just practicing my lettering techniques and texturing effects.
  20. Scrolling through layers can be a massive pain in bigger projects. Organizing things into Layers and Groups helps, but only so much. One object heavy layer can send you back to Slot Machine Simulator territory. There needs to be a “Expand/Contract All Layers” button that allows you to take full advantage of all your careful Layer organization by letting you put all your ‘junk’ back in their respective ‘junk drawers’ so that scrolling can be kept within the limits of ones sanity.
