  1. Beta notes mention Grid improvements. What are they? This image shows exactly the same issues as reported many months ago.
  2. Designer 1.7.1 iOS 12.3 I reported this before and it seems still that 100% displays a document - if created in inches - at twice its actual size, with 50% showing it truly at 100%. A new image created as 1" x 1" @ 264dpi should present on screen at 100% view as 1" x 1". (264 being iPad resolution) but shows as 2x2 on screen. It seems that if created as pixels or is 'resized' to pixels without changing dimensions - 100% view does then display correctly at 1" 1". Apologies if I have something wrong here. (I now visit Designer only occasionally and am always unsure if
  3. Designer 1.7.1 iOS 12.3.1 As Title: Trying to duplicate brush from 'Recent Brushes' causes crash (losing recent work).
  4. Matteo... Quite inexperienced myself, I also find many problems and difficulties with Designer but this has not been one of them. Of course you will certainly have tried it, but I'm puzzled why the Move tool, top of toolbox, does not do what you want? Yes, I've always found that Double-tapping with Move tool does indeed put you in Node-edit mode (activating the (2nd down) Node-edit tool), but otherwise I myself can find no way to make the Move tool show or affect the vector nodes. Doesn't help you, I know, but only say this to let you know there's others (I for one) who do
  5. Unfortunately, the Help File referred to here seems to be solely for the Desktop version - with nothing equivalent for the iPad version. A while ago, Forum member DM1 spent considerable time and effort to transpose the complete iPad version's in-app Help file into pdf format, and made it available to all. The link to his post is here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/64366-affinity-designer-on-ipad-pdf-help-file/&tab=comments#comment-336477 I have suggested to the forum moderators they might place it as a Sticky at the top the Resources and/or Suppo
  6. To the Moderators... May I suggest this be placed as a Sticky at the head of this Support Section? Surely invaluable to just about every user as an alternative to the internal version. (Clearly a great deal of time and effort put into this by DM1 - a shame for it to become gradually un-noticed beneath other posts)?

  8. Dave... I also would like to thank you for all the effort you must have put into this. Not just offering a bare-bones account, but It seems you've actually covered in full all the Actual Help File topics. I can't imagine how you might have achieved this - other than maybe screenshoting each page and somehow doing an OCR on them? But I'm not asking that you reveal this - just want to say a loud Bravo! Very impressive... thanks again.
  9. Sorry, Gabriel. You keep misunderstanding me. Dpi/PPi is commonly used to define resolution is what i said. Not that Res and Pix Density are the same. I see no point in pursuing this. I'm glad you have recognised and logged this issue. (Please note: None of this is meant to be unfriendly. I often find myself caught up in Forum confusions)....
  10. Gabriel, I know you say it with a smile, but I do think that rather muddies the water a bit. We know dpi/ppi technically refers to Pixel Density, but isn’t it all but universally used to define Resolution? But, all that aside, I would still like to know if it’s the Help file that’s not right, when it says (as shown in previous screenshot) that the Navigator’s 100% view applies to all - any unit - documents, or whether (my original point) it is the Navigator itself that’s actually not working as it should? I don’t pretend to understand the x2 factor you mention, but it seems to add a
  11. Gabriel, Thanks so much for the detailed explanation. (Sorry, long-winded again - but unavoidable, I'm afraid... First, I do need to repeat that I have never said, nor ever thought, the dimensions of a document have anything at all to do with a document's resolution. In my example, 6x4" is immaterial (it could have been 7.8x3.6 inches or mm ; the resolution I gave it - in this example 264 dpi (to match iPad's resolution, as I believed it be) would always have been 264 for the purposes of this proposition : i.e. that a document (any dimension, any unit) would be expected to appear at
  12. Sorry if my post was not clear. But I never said it was. Nor would I: resolution being measured not in inches but dpi (or ppi) - as I said in my post:- Document is 6"x4" @ iPad's native resolution of 264dpi. Yes, I know. That's my point... When the resolution of a document is the same as the resolution of the display, a 6"x4" canvas (or object) will - should - physically measure on the screen as 6"x4" when the View is set to 100% . In the case shown, it measured 6"x4" at 50% view. Only when the doc and display have the same resolution (264 in iPad'
  13. IPad Pro . Designer Attached is screenshot of: New Document - 6in x 4in @ 264dpi (Native iPad resolution). So, should at 100% View, measure 6x4in on screen. However the Navigator at 100% shows doc at 200%, with actual size of course at 50%. I reported this before, when helping test iPad Photo beta. I have included snapshot of Grid settings at the top to show a more serious problem : no matter how many times I specify 1in spacing, it insists on changing it, as in shot, to 0.97. Doesn’t seem a lot, but you can see the result in the grid on the 6x4in
  14. My thanks again. Looks like I’d been trying out too many tools and procedures at the same time, only to then forget what i’d just done! Like having used both the transparency tool and the Opacity in Colour Studio on the same object and gradient stops and being mystified when changing the values of one didn’t change the alpha completely. (And should spend more time visiting the help section...)!
  15. Thanks for your patience. I still could nothing to change the objects’ colours and eventually re-installed and re-booted and then all was perfectly ok - could do nothing to replicate the problem. And the ‘ghost’ object outline has not re-appeared. No idea what was going on, but glad it so far seems to have been a one-off. I did, however, come upon another gradients issue that puzzles me. You’ll see in the attached .afdesign file (History retained) that the top and bottom rectangles are simple solid fills - with no gradient or transparency applied. But both are affected by
