    DM1 got a reaction from Andy Somerfield in ON MY IPAD Storage is completely broken   
    I've deleted 1.7 and now 1.8 GM beta is integrating perfectly with Files app. Open from Tapping an .afphoto file in Files app opens file in Affinity Photo. Files app's info window now opens in Affinity Photo. LUTs and brushes loading from local storage too! This is a monumental improvement.  🥰

    DM1 got a reaction from Cealcrest in Affinity Designer 1.6 on iPad PDF Help File   
    I have attached a Dropbox link to a PDF version of the Affinity Designer IPad apps built in Help file. You can open this file in a reader or iBook and view it while using Designer. 
    I hope you find it as useful as I do.
    Please note that this PDF is not in any way supported by Affinity, nor are they responsible for any errors or omissions,  so please do not refer any errors or omissions in the Document to Affinity. Every attempt has been made (by me) to ensure the content is an accurate representation of the built in Help file, however some errors 'may' have slipped through .
    I will  endeavour to keep it up to date (at least for a little while) . When Publisher comes out I may redo the layout (Pages is a little limited in the area of indexing).
    My Dropbox account is basic and limits daily bandwidth, hopefully that won’t be a problem.
    Here's the link to the folder. 
    https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wulycsq0un4uo6i/AACz5hvGbGrteZB4E9q_HPI5a?dl=0
    UPDATE
    The folder now contains two files. Thanks to the efforts of Glenn, the original file size has been reduced to a mere 14MB, with little loss of resolution.
     EDIT.
    Attached a low resolution (6mb) version to post. Fully functional. Enjoy.
    Enjoy

    DM1 reacted to Chris B in 1.8 GM Macro studio category actions   
    Hey DM1,
    You've raised a few good points here;
    I also cannot see the point of creating a custom category as I can't put anything into it—I'll check with the Photo lead to see if this should be removed for now. We should improve the Help and suggest that we can import macros exported from the desktop versions and not currently the iPad version.

    THIS is the function I’m waiting for on the iPad, recording and exporting your own macros, one of the few reasons I have to return to desktop versions

    DM1 got a reaction from Paul Mudditt in 1.8 GM Macro studio category actions   
    The help file is a little confusing as it implies that it is possible to create an empty Category (correct) and to import a previously exported .afmacro file into this category. 

    There is currently no export macro option available.
    While it is possible to create an empty category I cannot find a way to place a macro into it.
    It is still possible to import .afmacros files.

    Thank you Cecil !.
    I do have some You Tube channels but I find the combination of words and video like on this forum and on facebook to be easier to construct a narrative on topics, having recently retired from a stressful engineering management job after 42 years I find Affinity to be very therapeutic and relaxing for me yet keeps my brain ticking over too !

    Ah, double tap the Hide UI button and the context toolbar will also hide. As long as that is documented, that should be fine.

    As previously reported AP is unable to access (open/import) files via iOS Files app however, if you change view in Files app from Browse to Recent, files that were greyed out suddenly become accessible. Maybe this info helps devs identify issue? 
    Same behaviour when importing macros (and other assets?) too. Notice how the two .afphoto files change from grey when view changes from Browse to Recent.
    EDIT On further review I think the reason for this behaviour is the the recent view is showing iCloud version, not local iPad. 😩

    DM1 reacted to Paul Mudditt in Flood selection tool   
    Ok, it looks like you are using the tool as if it was the “smart selection tool”  which is where you paint it around the scene and it snaps to the edges.
    With the “flood selection tool” simply tap on the colour you want to flood select, because you are sliding it around it never makes the colour selection.
    Below I firstly repeat the wrong way to use the “flood tool”.
    Then I use the “smart selection tool” using the steps you take and you should see the selection appear.
    I then remove the selection and return to the “flood selection tool” and use it how it is intended which is to perform a simple screen tap on the colour that i want to auto select.
    EDIT: I have added the relevant help sections, Flood select is a tap to select all colours close to the colour tapped on using the tolerance value as to how close the colour should be. Smart select is performed by painting in the region which is the action I believe you are doing in your video.

    DM1 reacted to Paul Mudditt in Mud’s Macros - Expand Stroke   
    On one of the Facebook groups, David Williams set me an accidental challenge by mentioning Expand Stroke was a function only available in Affinity Designer.
    Well now you can use Expand Stroke in Affinity Photo on all platforms by importing my Mud’s Macros library.
    To create this I needed to record a macro, which is only available in AP. The command I needed was in AD so how to get it?
    I started in Affinity Publisher on desktop with a blank document, changed to AP persona and started record, then changed to AD persona and performed Expand Stroke from the menu, then switched back to Photo persona and ended the recording. Simples, eventually !
    Mud’s Macros V3
    SelectionFromLayer - convert a layer into a pixel selection
    SelectAllLayers - select all layers quickly
    DeSelectAllLayers - de select all layers quickly
    PencilPortrait - Convert Photo to pencil sketch (Credit: Alpha Sierra, YouTube)
    InpaintCrop2 - fix edges after a straighten crop (Credit: Jim Welsh)
    Inpaint - the inpaint option from the desktop.
    ExpandStroke - Expand Stroke from Designer 
    TextOnCurve - Text on a curve path from Designer
    And here it is in action on iPad, but the macro also works on desktop versions of Photo as well.

    As per heading. I can create and store a template on local storage but am unable to create a new file based on that template. Same issue as trying to load .afphoto from local storage. Files are greyed out.

    Hey DM1,
    The Help for the new beta features/changes will be added to the retail version of 1.8 and you won't see it in the beta.
    The New From Template option lets you open an untitled .aftemplate file once you have exported it from Document > Save As Template. This means you will be able to save custom documents.
