  1. ProDesigner I must admit you put a lot of effort into finding a workaround for an intolerable situation concerning help file access, kudos to you! However going through all those hoops just to view a screen or two of the help files only serves to illustrate the absurdity that exists in accessing help while working on an image. This has been and still is a serious shortcoming for an otherwise excellent product. I cannot believe the serif team cannot fix this problem, and yes it is as real a problem as any bug. They expect you to exit your work, search around help for a solution that may or may not do what you need, then get back into edit mode and see if it does the trick. If not, exit your work and repeat the process. This is absurd.
  2. Excellent description DM1. This kind of detail is the stuff we need to know to really understand these applications. Thanks, John E.
  3. Way to go Serif, I see that Apple has showcased Affinity Photo on the new 12.9” iPad. Hats off to ya! https://www.apple.com/ipad-pro/ John E
  4. Thanks Callum. There are so many great videos on this site to learn from that it’s hard to keep up with all of them. Thanks for pointing this one out, I have also found it to be very useful. John E
  5. Ditto. I have purchased the courses you mentioned plus others, including one that covers AP on the iPad. Definitely the best source for learning AP that I’ve run across. Don’t know about other Udemy courses but this series by Simon Foster is highly recommended. I happened to catch them on sale for USD $10 each so the price does vary.
  6. Thanks DM1. Your workflow description is detailed and to the point. It looks like a sound approach that I think I will adopt. It’s terrible that iPad users have to jump through these kinds of hoops just to keep up with their files, but Apple is Apple what can I say.
  7. Exactly toltec, thanks for clearing up that confusion. I understood the Save As as described in the Help section. That section and a search of other areas in Help failed to describe the action of the Save command, thus the original post.
  8. Thanks toltec. I am just trying to totally understand the files get/save/import/export/copy/local storage/cloud/etc. flow. Just one more piece to the puzzle. (Sorry for the initial post in gigantic font, it was what defaulted when I created the question!)
  9. iPad Affinity Photo: Along with the Persona selections at the top of the screen is the Document tab. In that drop down window is the Save command. What does that do? I can’t find a file saved anywhere (on my iPad, iCloud, etc.) after I press it. My guess is that it just saves the current state of the document being edited (as .afphoto), as if I exited the document to go back to the Home screen, saving the round trip from the document to Home and back to the document just to save my edits as I work? Is this what’s going on or have I missed something?
  10. I can’t make it open in a split screen. I believe this implies a second instance of the same program (Photo) running at the same time thus it is prohibited by iOS?
  11. I’ve also asked for this feature for Photo. It is VERY inconvenient to leave an image to go to the Help section then back to the image. Makes it almost impossible to experiment with a feature that requires multiple trips to Help.
  12. Now that iPad Designer has been released is there any consideration to split this support forum into two separate forums, one for Photo and one for Designer? Or is there sufficient overlap to keep them together? I happen to be a Photo only user and it immediately became apparent that it is going to be difficult to zero in on Photo only questions now that questions for both products are co-mingled. Your thoughts?
  13. I agree with DM1, the built in IPad AP Help files are very helpful and it is ashamed that they cannot be accessed at the same time an image is being edited. Flipping back and forth between the Help files and the image being edited severely limits the usefulness of the Help files. It looks like an iPad AP workbook is not forthcoming. In lieu of that I would like to suggest that the AP team consider making the AP iPad Help files available in an offline mode, such as a PDF file. I realize that certain dynamic features in the Help files would be lost in a PDF file but 99% of the content being available offline would allow a user to walk through the Help either in a split screen on the iPad or on a companion computer nearby while editing an image. Has the AP team considered an offline version of the Help files?
  14. Using the Move tool I created a bounded selection that was then resized and tilted. I could restore the tilt angle back to zero with a double tap to the tilt “handle”. Is there any way to restore the bounded selection back to the original dimensions of the layer it was created on?
