  1. If no modifications are being made, “Add global color” crashes the app. It appears to erase the new project altogether. IMG_1592.MP4
  2. I wish at least to see the complete demise of this crucial function from a dev. No, we won’t ever be able to import our color palettes and every time we reinstall the app we’ll have to manually import them. I’d say well this sucks but I can live with it, what else can I do. The lacking of any official response instead feels worse to be honest.
  3. As a designer who works exclusively with vector shapes for cutting I had to see Contour tool “with my own eyes”. It’s a fantastic addition! For a second there I’ve thought it’s only a “trick”, a rather raster shape ‘attached’ to a vector but it’s not! “Substract” WORKS PERFECTLY and the result IS GREAT! Sure the tool needs more stability (maybe I had some issue setting the contour because of a 5000px doc, wanting to see the large-doc improvements for older iPads — that’s besides the point) — but I have no words how helpful this tool is!
  4. A Merry Merry Affinity Christmas! (And may heavens make you understand how important is for the average vector user to import color palletes on the iPad version; almost like the pen tool itself for some) 🙃
  5. Please add “import color palette” option if possible... I think it’s something hugely missing from the mobile apps
  6. Thank you for your reply; you, Alfred and a couple more great people here always come with valuable advices and I admit many times I’ve found eloquent responses to my own questions, without even having to ask them. Now, I didn’t want to start another topic because I didn’t want to put my cheap outrage here in these fantastic forums; but I still miss complex character designs for a project; I’m aware of my own stupidity of not doing backups to my files, but it didn’t crossed my mind for a second I need to save anything when comes to assets, because in two years never happened to me; how could something like this happen anyway? Why a broken program passed the most rudimentary stages of development if things like this are bound to happen for an ecosystem the recovery of your hard work is impossible? So while having myself to blame, that doesn’t make AD less faulty with their lack of auto-save functionality which (alongside with not being able to import swatches) — which really in my eyes makes it far less evolved than I’ve thought two years ago when I started using it (and wasting, over time, thousands of hours to accommodate to a new software — and I’m saying ‘wasting’ because my trust is slowly slipping out; I’m using more and more a new program now, which paradoxically for its free status receives tens of more valuable updates than AD; I’ve always said the price wasn’t my motive of using AD but it’s functionality, I wanted to believe the support it will be much more higher than we see now, without glitches that ruin tens of hours of your own hard work. I’m getting mad only by thinking of it; I wouldn’t mind paying a monthly subscription for AD, I’ve said this from the start, its cheap price compared to other software matters little when you tailor your whole working life around a program for two years, just to find out it’s broken, it has bugs that ruins your life... see that’s why I didn’t start a new topic about a issue no one could help you with (except advices that, although nice and welcomed, I’m well aware of). I remember asking that night on a topic about someone loosing his files, in AD for windows forums, and the lack of response was to be expected since there really could be no one able to help; the iOS terrible architecture is to blame too, of course — more reason for AD to become a reliable software and not this one, where you can find yourself loosing projects for good. Anyway — thanks again for your reply; you’re nice and you try to be helpful as always Kind regards
  7. As stated above; video proof below. Hopefully we won’t have to wait months for such an important bug to be addressed. It works if you deselect the point, but that’s terribly tedious and it’s not a workaround, when ‘join curves’ is a fundamental part of your work. Unrelated to this, a couple of weeks back I’ve lost thousands of designs saved as assets, (while saving a design in ‘assets’ the app crashed and everything in assets has gone, without the rest of the app to be affected), some of them for good; the state Affinity Designer for IPad is, two years later, is disappointing to say the least. I didn’t have unreasonable expectations, but not this terrible level of updates’ support either. Kind regards IMG_8650.MP4
  8. @DWright Hello, on iPad Affinity Designer while saving a design for laser cutting to ‘Assets’ the app froze, crashed and I’ve lost over a hundreds designs (everything I had in ‘Assets’ — instead the ‘iOS 12’ category is back despite deleting it months ago) most of them for good, with no backup. Probably not but before losing my minds completely I have to ask, there’s any chance to recover them? Kind regards.
  9. I had to read a couple of times what I’m seeing here, and even now I can’t believe my eyes this is a drawing; beyond beautiful, thank you for sharing with us!
  10. I think it is limited to ‘pure’ vector brushes, everything else being raster files over a vector line; as my little understanding goes, for us to be able to expand strokes of more complex brushes (such as the beautiful ‘engraving’ new stuff) Affinity will have to improve the brush creation making possible to use ‘real’ vector shapes over a vector line, and I think we are years away for that to happen.
  11. There are various bugs in this version that makes my work impossible to continue; even the expand stroke which suffered huge improvements, is useless right now because using the ‘add’ function adds sometimes too many anchor points, making the resulted shapes looking highly unprofessional and somehow useless for cutting machines. The Boolean operations are not working how they are supposed to, and this especially is a work-breaking for me. Right now I’m forced to work with other software but I have to ask, is any hot fix on its way to AppStore? I’ve put hundreds of hours to understand and improve my workflow with AD and all my past files are in its format as well, so please make an update at least so Boolean operations to work fine, like it did in 1.7 (sadly for me I can’t test the improvements you guys were talking about). Kind regards.
  12. Two weeks ago I reinstalled affinity designer after getting to 100GB of size; today the iPad started to be unresponsive because the app reached 150GB which made impossible to save many of my vector files to iCloud. I’ve managed to save parts of my files in assets, unfortunately half of them didn’t upload. iTunes doesn’t help anymore. If you have the tremendous misfortune and it happens to you too, open your projects and saved your projects by following ‘document - save as’ and make a fresh folder; it doesn’t save outside projects; sometimes it doesn’t save ‘as copy’ either. Probably many of them will not save so making a fresh asset adding your projects there is the only way to get your files out (it’s good I’ve made multiple assets because a couple of them didn’t upload. I should have probably reboot the iPad but it didn’t cross my mind) Monitoring the app size is mandatory if you have such issues yourself, although sometimes is getting out of hand and triples in size very quick (yesterday the app had @40GB) I don’t have the strength to complain about this anymore, but this bug is messing with people lives yet it’s just as bad as it was a year ago when first reported. I couldn’t make a video but I’ve managed to screenshot the app/device storage in settings. Kind regards, iuli
