  1. I know it’s been mentioned before but we REALLY need to have a lighter background for the assets menu in the iPad Apps. Or at least an option. As you can see in the screenshot it is Impossible to see dark colored assets that are imported in to the app. It is not practical to re-save (sometimes) hundreds of individual assets so that I can see them in the menu.

    I may be wrong, but he might mean, how can we reset tools to the default values. When I draw a box, for example, and add a stroke to it, the stroke is whatever the last setting was (in this example, 600pt). it would be great to have the stroke start at zero or some other (smaller) value rather than the last totally unrelated value.
  3. It would be great if there was a way to hide an active selection without deselecting. I want to say I’ve seen this before (in Illustrator?) but I might be making it up. Either way it would be helpful to quickly see what’s going on with a drawing without having to deselect and resell the to make an adjustment. Thanks!
  4. Gabriel, This sounds very much like the problem I was/am having with complex files. You told me that you could not reproduce the problem as well. Like with the above, it seems to happen with large and/or complex files. Its mostly random but fairly predictable and these (types of) files are the only thing to make my iPad flinch even a little. ‘Just wanted to chime in as this is the first time I’ve seen this other than myself. Thanks for your help so far. Please let me know if there is any troubleshooting or setting I can do on my end to help figure this out.

    Reset Tools

    Thank you.

    Reset Tools

    Is it possible to reset tools to their default state? When I use the artistic text tool, it always uses values that I have used in the past. Sometimes far in the past. So I then have to go through to deselect superscript, all caps, and reset tracking and leading to zero. It would be helpful to me if the tools can forget recently used setting or I can reset them manually and not have to go back in to each text and reset all of the settings. Thanks.

    Too many points(?)

    Yes. Several times. It actually caused my iPad to reboot. It only seems to happen when I use files with lots of points. Strange.

    Too many points(?)

    What I was trying to do while working with this file was to add each image as an asset. Everything is grouped kind of randomly, so I would ungroup and try to select each thing to make its own group and then asset. That’s when the glitch happens. I hope that makes sense. Thanks.

    Too many points(?)

    I have run into problems on occasion when working with vector documents that have a large amount of points. What usually happens is that the app hangs, I assume while working on all the points, sometimes visual glitches, and other times will become stuck in a selection and I can’t deselect/select other items. The attached video shows a new and exciting glitch that happened today. A minute after the video, Designer crashed and restarted my iPad. Not sure what else to say. Thanks iPad Pro 12.9” 64GB (2018) iOS - 12.1.4 Affinity Designer - Latest version 8BEAA916-DAB1-42FC-AE69-026CC5638833.MOV
  10. Every so often while moving a layer, the layer I’m trying to move will get stuck on screen. See attached. I will have to force quit the app to refresh the menu. I also often experience random moments where the screen is unresponsive. I can’t zoom, scroll, or rotate or select/deselect for a few seconds and then control returns. I’m on a 2018 12.9” iPad Pro with the latest version of designer. Is this a thing? thanks D3973B69-A6BC-4A82-88F3-315674D360ED.MOV
  11. Specifically the type tools. When I copy/paste text it inherits the formatting used previously instead of having no format. Makes for extra steps to undo/redo the formatting. Thanks
  12. It would be great to be able to name new documents as they are being set up. And also to have access to name/rename while working without having to exit out to the file browser. Thanks
  13. When I crop an image in the photos app, save it to my camera roll and then place it in Designer, I places the uncropped image. Feature? bug? Thanks
