  1. Hi there! I love designing with repeating patterns. Now I found a good workflow to design and apply repeating patterns in AD. I recorded a tutorial that shows you how to design them, build a style library and apply patterns. They blend nicely with color fills using blend modes. The pattern and the color fill are in one shape, so no duplicates!

    If you prefer the short explanation: I design vector patterns in a separate document using symbols to get the tiling right, export as bitmaps, use bitmap fills to build up a Style Library and apply those in drawings on iPad and desktop.

  2. .Afstyles file are not accepted with airdrop (no associated app found) and can't be imported using the styles window (tested DropBox and iCloud) (iOS 10.3, Designer 1.7.2). Tested in pixel and vector persona's.

    --> I'm pretty sure this happens only when you don't have Affinity Photo installed on iPad, something is wrong with file type associations on Designer.
    --> Need a fix for this!


  3. I'm still having this issue: Designer 1.7.2 on iOS 10.3 can't import an .afstyles file from DropBox or iCloud. These files have a standard icon, not the purple one. File is greyed out and can't be selected when choosing "import styles" from the Styles hamburger menu.
