    Gen 3 iPad Pro Support

    I haven't noticed any slowdown with AD on my 12.9 Gen 3 pro, but I do notice the UI. I'm anxiously awaiting the update if only to get my screen real estate back.

    Sketch on iPad Pro?

    Procreate is not a MAC app - iPad only. You can export a layered PSD or any flat image file (TIF, JPG, PNG, etc) from the iPad app and into iCloud drive, (or Dropbox,) which will show up on your Mac. Or you can export to Air Drop and transfer them that way. You can jump over to their forums and ask for people's specific Procreate workflows as everyone's setup is a little different. I'm sure you'll find something that works for you. https://procreate.art/discussions

    Sketch on iPad Pro?

    Make sure the app is set to back up to iCloud and it will reinstall your work if you need to do a fresh install. It also saves out to the files app, so you can send files to any cloud storage or Airdrop to your Mac. You can export a native layered Procreate file, PSD, JPG, PNG etc. Affinity apps work the same way.

    Sketch on iPad Pro?

    Procreate is the best sketch app IMO. It's the fastest raster based drawing app I've used on the iPad Pro and the interface really gets out of the way and lets you draw. You can do full on finished artwork with it as well. I use Procreate and Affinity Designer every day. Both Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo have very good pencil tools also, but I personally prefer doing my actual drawing in Procreate because it's just got a more fluid engine that feels better to me when making a mark. I suggest hitting an Apple store and maying giving them a try . My local one has Procreate and Affinity on their demo iPads.

    Cut lines for sign making

    I don't know about printing directly from Affinity, but I send an EPS file made from Affinity Designer to Flexi which can turn the vector outline into a cutline for our plotter.
  6. Dev request: When adding support for the double-tap feature on the Gen 2 Apple Pencil, can you also make an option to disable double-tap? Like many others after years of disabling and removing buttons from my Cintiq pens, I would hate to have the pencil experience ruined by accidental double-taps while working.

    Designer on Gen 3 iPad Pro

    I'm not on the most current iOS version and I know hardware can make all the difference. I figured there could be UI issues as well.

    Designer on Gen 3 iPad Pro

    Awesome - I was hoping to hear that it was running well. (I'm going to make a suggestion in the proper forum to make an option to disable the double tap option.) How soon can we expect an update? - I know I'm asking a lot there.
  9. No problem. I honestly don't use AP much. I have it on both the desktop and iPad, but don't batch RAW files through it. I'll have to give it a shot for batch processing. I just don't think it's economical yet to use AP on iPad to batch RAW files.
  10. I've really fought photo editing on the iPad. I have AP and all the Adobe apps, but I just do better in Lightroom on my desktop before I need the Photoshop/AP step. I don't like the RAW engine Apple has on the iPad. Try as I have I just can't get the same image quality from a RAW file on the iPad as I can from Desktop LR. But for my Illustration and now design, I've really enjoyed using the iPad as my primary content creation device for a while now. It's long replaced a Wacom Cintiq and Photoshop. As far as can it replace a standard computer - I think this has a lot to do with how much RAM they start jamming in the iPad pro. The Gen 3 looks like a monster, but we'll have to see how it handles with the limited RAM they still have injected into it (6GB on 1TB models and 4GB on all others). It's an improvement over what we currently have, but it's nothing compared to what's in a desktop/laptop or how it's handled by the OS. I know iOS's ARM chips handle RAM differently, but I'm not that well versed in the tech to know what that magic number is. But back to photo editing. One thing that's holding me back is the way the file system is implemented within the Files App. It's a step in the right direction for sure, and it's what has allowed the beginnings of an actual professional creative workflow for me, but it needs to mature a little more. You can operate without dumping hundreds of images in your camera roll as in the case of AD and AP you can store the images on the iPad or in the app storage while you work on them. You'll have to rely on a computer, server, iCloud, Dropbox, etc. to store your multi image jobs once you're done working on them. And that doesn't exactly allow quick access if a client needs something "real quick". I suppose it's up to you if you can live within the existing limitations. But as far as processing power goes, it's definitely there.
  11. iPads are a daily use device for me and I'm on either Procreate, Affinity Designer or both for almost every project. I just pulled the trigger pre-ordering a new Gen 3 iPad Pro 12.9" as I'm currently working on a Gen 1, 12.9Pro and although I'm excited, I'm also nervous because rarely am I a day one upgrader. Can any of the dev's speak to 1.6 (or 1.7) running on the new iPad Pro? I'm hoping to hear that's it's running smooth and stable so I can get rid of my older iPad sooner.
  12. Procreate and Designer are my two go-to apps on my iPad. I use them professionally almost every day. I have a 12" iPad Pro1, (I update every other product cycle,) and the latest Procreate version runs circles AD in Pixel Persona especially when using textured large brushes. It's just more responsive and fluid. I just did a raster t-shirt design all in AD because I wanted to give it a shot, and it just had a bit too much lag for my taste when drawing. It wasn't a deal breaker, but it definitely made me miss using Procreate. I'm excited for the next new 12" iPad pro, hopefully it'll even the playing field a bit as I love the features in AD.

    Curated list of Free for Commercial Use Fonts

    Thanks for all the work in curating these.
  14. I'm striking out importing styles from anywhere (Dropbox or iCloud) The workaround for me is to use my desktop version to apply all my styles to a series of shapes and use that document as the master styles document where I can open it in Designert for iPad, select the shape and import the styles one at a time that way. Consequently, this is also how I'm saving color palettes also. I'm just opening a screen grab of my desktop palette and manually making it on the iPad. Not ideal but it gets the job done.
  15. This is huge for me. At the very least creating from an image.
