    iPad as well?

    Earlier this summer, I moved my entire content-creation "empire" from my MacBook Pro to my iPad Pro 12.9" (with Apple Pencil and Bluetooth keyboard). It was the best move ever. I make YouTube videos on the fly - videos shot using FilmicPro... videos edited in Luma Fusion... thumbnails shot with Halide... voiceover recording in Ferrite Recoding Studio... popup graphics using Affinity Designer... video script created on SimpleMind (mind mapping app). My "toy" makes me a full-time income. I have been waiting for this moment for a LONG LONG time. And later this year, I will install a NAS file drive into my home router/internet connection - allowing me to backup/sync files from anywhere in the world. For when I am not online, I will use Western Digital's Wifi external storage. The only complaint I have about the iPad Pro is copy/paste. I do wish Apple would fix that problem. It is still dicey. This setup I have is FAR cheaper (and better) than any laptop/desktop alternative. So this is not an expensive toy for me. I remain in awe of how amazing my iPad Pro setup is. My dream has come true.

    iOS multitasking (bug?)

    Anyone from Affinity know this answer?

    iOS multitasking (bug?)

    Curious: Is creating a split/side-by-side view app feature hard to pull off... too memory intensive... something else? Is there a reason apps choose not to offer multitasking?
  4. I am a user of both Affinity products and Luma Fusion (video editing on iPad). And at the Luma forum, I saw this post that Affinity is not compatible with Luma Fusion when trying to multitask: https://forums.luma-touch.com/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=7112#p21835 Is this a bug? Or might this be a feature in a future release?

    Alarm clock on iPad AD logo?

    Interesting. Thanks for the link. This is probably Apple's least useful function ever.
  6. Some days, I open my iPad Pro and see an alarm-clock icon within the Affinity Designer icon. Any ideas what this is all about?

    Import (Add?) gradient palette

    I do not use Dropbox. I use iCloud or Google Files.

    Import (Add?) gradient palette

    I am waiting a bit to update to ios 12. I was a beta tester and there are still some nagging issues I am waiting to be worked out. Discussion about it here: https://www.reddit.com/r/iOSBeta/

    Yes, I see what you mean. Not working on my end now either. I wonder if this is causing some sort of issues and Affinity killed it for now.

    Copy/paste crash

    Cool. Thanks for the reply.

    Copy/paste crash

    I appreciate you taking the time to do this... However: I found the problem. The cloned stars is the problem. I tried copying and pasting each element. They all worked. But when I copied the stars... bang... crash. And yes, I used the "Symbol" option.

    Copy/paste crash

    I have 2 files attached... When I go to copy everything from the flag file and paste it into my logo file, the app crashes. Is this a bug? flag-modern.afdesign KTL-logo.afdesign
  13. I appreciate you, toltec for helping me out with this. About designing it the right size in the first place... I was never taught to design a logo bigger than its final size. Is this common knowledge (if so, I feel stupid).
  14. Thanks for this reply. My entire logo is vector based. In any graphic's program I have used, I have never had to increase the dimensions to get a higher resolution - I would just click the export as .png and it would look great. Are we sure this is not a bug in the software?
  15. Bump for attention... Any ideas on this: can you suggest what export settings I use to produce a cleaner export?
