  1. The new icons look good. I dig the logic to emphasize the similarity of the software regardless of platform.

    Downloadable Affinity keyboard shortcut cheat sheets

    Thanks for these @Patrick Connor. [Random, but has anyone made a hardware keyboard with these shortcuts as of yet? I would dig that.]

    Character Design - Shading in Vector

    Your tutorials are really helpful. I learn a ton from watching an experienced vector illustrator like you work. Thanks!

    Apple Books Export

    I think this would be a great idea, too. Anything to help simplify the digital publishing process would be sweet.
  5. Really easy to understand, thanks for posting.

    Vector masking - AD iPad?

    I am also a little foggy on how vector clipping works on the iPad version of AD. This helps some, though.

    Adjusting Vector Line Pressure in AD

    Thanks @Lee D, this fixed me up. I’m a n00b to vector inking and still trying to understand all the settings. I really appreciate it.
  8. I’m having trouble adjusting the pressure of my vector lines in Affinity Designer on iOS. It seems that whatever brush I first use to lay the line down needs to be temporarily switched to different vector brush and then switched back to my original brush before it will allow me to adjust the pressure. In my attached clip, I used the basic vector brush, but I’ve tried a handful of brushes from a handful of vendors and the behavior is the same. I have to ink, change the brush, and then change it back. For each line, it’s pretty rough. Can’t seem to find if there’s something under the hood I’m missing, or if this is expected behavior. (Thanks in advance, all.) E45911A8-D131-4BE5-AD98-9268E716A1CC.MOV
  9. I just logged on to search the forums for similar info about vector brushes. Thanks so much @Bri-Toon, perfect timing!
  10. Hey Sean P, thanks for the reply. Would love to be able to use Affinity Photo for more drawing, so anything you could do would be cool.
  11. Yikes. That’s kind of a bummer, but it seems a few other people are taking note of this as well. Hopefully there is a fix in the pipeline.

    Pixelated line with drawing tools

    I just noticed this same kind of thing in the raster brushes on the latest update for Affinity Photo on the iPad and posted about it as a bug, but maybe it’s how Affinity’s brush engine works and not a bug? Thanks for the heads up / ideas on this.
  13. Howdy, all - - maybe a bug in Affinity Photo for iPad? Drawn lines become clear / crisp a fraction of a second after the line is laid down. Almost like lines come out of the brush at 80% clarity and then takes a second to ‘pop’ into full clarity when complete. I didn’t notice the same behavior in the Pixel Persona of Affinity Designer with the same brush. So to test, I tried a handful of brushes, canvas sizes, etc. in both programs. AD shows my lines without a clarity delay, live, while drawing. AP seems to not be able to keep up with the same parameters so I’m a bit stumped. Otherwise this update is fantastic, I’m hooked. Really, really great app Serif. Thanks for all your work.
  14. Thanks Callum, I just sent you a message.
  15. Howdy all- - I applied a levels adjustment to sharpen/clarify some line art as I mentioned in this earlier post. However, when I open the file on my iPad the line art does not appear as adjusted at all - - even though the levels adjustment is right where it's supposed to be in the layers panel. I check and uncheck the adjustment layer and see no changes to the line art. If I open the file back up in the desktop version, the line art is just as sharp as I left it. It's a bit of a head scratcher. Anyone have a similar issue of their changes not being reflected between iOS and macOS versions of Photo?
