  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

    Thank you.

    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

    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.

  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. Is it possible to change the color or contrast of the tools and palettes? It’s tough to glance over to see what tool is where and also, in the case of assets, if they are black, they almost disappear. You can see what I mean in the attached screenshot. Thanks!

    Tools/menu palette color or contrast

    Thanks, I’ll submit a feature request (and tighten up my squinting skills).

    Designer Keyboard Shortcuts

    Life. Saver. Thanks!
  15. Is it possible to assign a keyboard shortcut to show specific studio items? I know that I can modify the command to show all studio tabs, but I would like to show and hide assets separate from other tabs. Thanks!
  16. When moving items with the position slider in the Transform menu, whatever I am moving snaps back to its original spot and I have to move it again. Sometimes several times. See attached video. IMG_0401.TRIM.MOV

    Palm Rejection option when using Apple Pencil?

    I’m having a problem with palm rejection as well. If I start with my palm touching, the iPad will not start to draw. If I rest my palm after starting it will deisengage the too I’m using and/or deselect. I am also unable to touch the screen to constrain proportions to resize an object. Has as something changed? thanks.

    Default brush

    Whenever I make a new mask layer and go to edit it, it gives me a very artistic brush that is no good for editing masks. Is it possible to change the default brush in Photo for iPad? thanks
  20. Derrick Phillips

    Default brush

    I’m not exactly sure which brush it is. But you can see it in the screenshot. What i’d Like to do is have it default to a simple brush so I can edit/make a mask.

    I just signed up for the beta (I thought I already had). Thanks!

    Moving items with the position slider in the Transform menu

    Hi, Is there any word on this issue? Moving things in (iPad) Affinity Photo has become quite a chore, Trying to drag things takes several tries because the objects distort instead of move and trying to use the sliders takes several tries as well (due to this issue). Thanks

    Thanks! It's very random when it happens. As soon as I tried to record it, it stopped happening for a while! (of course!)
