  1. I use both Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer on my first-gen iPad Pro. Most of the time they work great. But I must be doing something wrong because I have a very obvious problem that no one else seems to complain about, so it sounds like user error. If I simply open a photo—any photo, JPEG or RAW—in Affinity Photo, it looks beautiful. Full resolution, no weird borders. Same thing if I ‘place’ a JPEG photo in Photo or Designer: image looks great, no extraneous borders. However, if I try to ‘place’ a RAW photo (Nikon D7000) in either Designer or Photo, I get this very low resolution, highly pixelated image with black borders on the top & bottom. It’s almost as if the Affinity apps are grabbing a low resolution thumbnail instead of the actual file. Do I accidentally have some setting in place that inserts thumbnails or tries to save space or something? Any help is appreciated.
  2. OK, as long as your document isn’t too complex, there’s a simple workaround. The artboard addition isn’t terminal. 1. Go in and select everything but the artboard itself, then copy it to the clipboard (not sure what the limit is? Is there a warning if you exceed it?). 2. Delete the artboard(s). The document retains the size of the last artboard deleted. 3. Paste everything back in (but still no artboard). 4. Add/change bleeds to your heart’s content. They work! 5. Optional: add back in the artboard(s).
  3. Oops. I’m running the iOS (iPadOS) 13.1 beta, so I guess this should be in another forum. But I’ve searched and found similar problems with bleeds on iOS 12, so I don’t think it’s the beta causing problems.
  4. I’m am new to bleeds, so maybe I’m doing something wrong, but… If I create a new document in Designer for iPad, and in the document setup dialog I don’t create an artboard, then once the document is created, I can select Bleed from the document menu and add & change bleeds on any side. If, however, I create a new document and select Artboard in the document setup dialog, then once the document is created, I select Bleed from the Document menu, I get the options to view & create bleeds, but they don’t show up. Also, the Include Bleed option is disabled on PDF Export. Likewise, if I create a document without artboards, and then add a bleed (say, on just 2 sides), it works fine, but once I selecte Document—>Artboards and add an artboard, I can no longer add or edit the existing bleeds. Are bleeds meant to work with artboards? Can different artboards within a single document have different bleeds? (I’m guessing not.) Thanks.
  5. If I create an artboard with a slash in its name (“8 1/2 x 11 Artboard” for example), then when I export that slice in the Export persona, anything before the slash becomes a new folder (“8 1”) and anything after becomes part of the file name (“2 x 11 Artboard.pdf” for example). It seems like your developers are not ‘escaping’ the slash when submitting the file name to the file system. For now, I’ve resorted to going decimal (“8.5 x 11 Artboard”) and that works fine.
  6. It would be nice if, on the opening screen where Designer lists your files, you could tap on the 3-bar icon in the lower right corner of each image, and 2 additional menu items would pop up: 1. File info (or File Details). This would list information like file size, location, format, color mode, etc. 2. Show in Files. This would open the Files app and open the folder that the file is located in. As it stands today, you have no idea where a file is located unless you hit Save, and then you have just a millisecond or two to read the filename. Thanks.
