    Mystery of lost document

    I have 20+ GB free on 128GB iPad Pro so that shouldn’t be a factor. AFAIK it’s only storing the documents on the iPad. But I think I just have a gazillion documents “open”, and perhaps they are supposed to be saved explicitly somewhere?

    Mystery of lost document

    It is possible the history was the reason I lost some state. The missing document could have been overwritten perhaps. I was working in a hotel with poor WiFi but that may be a red herring. Anyway I will watch carefully for a while.
  3. I seem to have lost a drawing I made on my iPad on Tuesday morning and another drawing has reverted to an earlier point in its life. I didn't do anything knowingly to these documents, and just wondered if this is just me doing something odd with history, or perhaps there are situations where AD on iPad has been known to discard data? To be clear, this is unlikely to be AD at fault, I am merely curious. I guess it is possible I did something silly with the document that has gone back in time, but I don't recall deleting the other one (I never delete stuff).

    Converting multiple curves to shapes

    thanks for that tip! have made it work on desktop, and will try that now on iPad...

    Converting multiple curves to shapes

    Thanks, will try to make that work... (it is a bit different on the iPad)

    See my comment above, the file wasn't in the correct state. (Apologies). b2.afdesign

    Converting multiple curves to shapes

    Sorry, I had gone too far back in my history. After doing the Expand/Add/Divide and filling in I want to make the two areas that show up in black on the image to be transparent, but even with fill set to none they appear black?

    Converting multiple curves to shapes

    Hi again. I have been using this technique to good effect, but I have not figured out how to make some fully enclosed areas transparent. Once this process is over this doesn’t seem possible? In the attached example there are two areas in the broccoli head that should be transparent. broccoli.afdesign

    Wow. That’s amazing service. And super helpful. Thanks a lot!
  10. I traced a doodle of a robot I drew, using Vector Brush. I end up with a layer containing many curves. I would like to be able what appear to be enclosed shapes, but are, of course, individual curve segments. It was suggested I use "Expand Stroke" then "Geometry Add" followed by "Geometry Divide" This left me with a completely black silhouette of my drawing. I am not sure what the expected workflow for doing something like this? I am very new to how Affinity Design approaches this! I was going to attach the afdesign file but it is 35MB so have appended a link. https://www.dropbox.com/s/d2d3t4f3a243vcf/render-bot.afdesign?dl=0

    Depth Effect ignored

    When the Portrait setting was in beta Apple saved 2 images. It is no longer the case, you just see one in the library. You can edit the photo in Apple Photos and remove the effect, but the photos I am trying to open have the effect applied and that is what I expect to see in Affinity Photo. What seems to be happening is that Affinity Photo is requesting the untransformed image somehow, any adjustments, crops or other changes you have made in Apple’s editing tools are ignored. You can see this you cropping a photo then importing it into AP, you will get the uncropped image. I can see why this might be useful sometimes, but it would be nice if it was an option.

    FWIW the latest version of Affinity Photo (updated last week) still has this behaviour

    Depth Effect ignored

    Hi I have added the file here. Though if it’s some weird interaction between Photos on my iPad and Affinity Photo it may not help reproduce the problem. It may also be too large!

    Depth Effect ignored

    I know the effect can be tinkered with on the iPhone 8 models but can’t see any way to change it on the 7+. It is just considered part of the image to most apps.

    Thanks. Let me know if you want a test image to try out.
