  1. Using the color picker while enlarging the canvas makes the color picker to ‘stuck’, as shown in the video below; the only way to get rid of it is to restart the app. I apologize if this has been reported already — I couldn’t find it. Regards 8534573A-F94D-4E99-95A8-E0E0977BCB55.MP4

    No Node Lasso

    I think you need to use the three finger gesture to select nodes with the lasso

    Huge Affinity Designer app size on iPad Pro 9.7 (again)

    Hello, this is the thread; @GabrielM came with the solution; it helped me out a handful of times in the past, hopefully you’ll find it useful as well. Regards.
  4. Three days ago AD suddenly got to 83GB while my files/assets/styles had a total of 1GB; this coincidentally happened while I was adding brushes (found here, on your fantastic forums) via “import brushes...” command, from iCloud, so I wasn’t doing anything weird outside the app (i.e. dragging the files in or something to cause crashes). I’ve thought it was just an accident, so I wouldn’t have expected to see the Designer’s size growing again and so soon, without adding anything to the app; this morning the app size was 15GB, now (five hours later) is 40GB (a couple of minutes ago was 56GB), and while I was recording, the app size decreased to 26GB (as you can see in the video, everything imported into the app are a few brushes and assets and they only have 27MB) I know there’s a file I should remove via iTunes & PC to bring the app size to normal, however unfortunately for me I have no access to PC in the near future, so the only thing to do is to erase/reinstall the app, which is not a big deal. My problem is that while the app got to enormous size a few days ago (taking almost all the iPad’s storage in the process) I was unable to delete the app, interact with iPad’s setting, etc. Rebooting it has taken 10 minutes while the Apple logo was appearing and disappearing, frankly I’ve got freaked out. I’m pretty scared to work with it right now since the app size could go up to an enormous size yet again. So my question is, do you guys have any fix for this besides erasing that file from iTunes?; — because it was one year ago when I was reporting this exact same problem, and it’s still here. You have these great apps, and you improve them constantly which is great, but I find this size problem a huge bug that should have been addressed a long time ago. Respectfully, iuli EDIT: After I’ve exported my brushes to iCloud, the app reverted to normal size (as shown in the video recorded just now); I don’t know why, another coincidence maybe?

  5. It only works if you interact with the slider (either with pencil or hand) before inputting a value; otherwise will reset to 100 D7D25BC7-AEBC-45EE-B441-7979ABE2AB0B.MP4
  6. First I thought that it was a bug, but what really happened was that I was drawing with the “compound path” icon active. This makes impossible to join/close paths further (with new lines), if they are already attached by a closed form, so my question is: where’s the ‘separate compound path” command? Sure it can be avoided by not using it, but it’s highly likely to touch the icon accidentally, and in that case a command to reverse it is necessary; if I’m wrong and I’m missing something I apologize and any help would be more than welcome. Edit: While closed paths figures can be split up into individual shapes by applying “divide”, simple different lines held together in a compound cannot be separated from each other. Maybe this is by design? 24FDAE3C-09F3-44E5-B789-45F5CC8FC547.MP4
  7. There’s no issues when using pencil and brush tool. 503BC549-0BB1-409F-A5D6-025F2315AA4F.MP4
  8. Both apps feel incredible smooth, many bugs are gone (except the magnifying glass which is part of my life by an year now, so it doesn’t bother me too much), and having the WHOLE node tool menu it feels AWESOME! I can’t believe it’s no more 12.9 exclusive, in my work this makes a huge difference! The appearance studio is an amazing addition, among other cool stuff like the point transform tool and the huge improvement in node selection. Hats off for all your hard work! iuli
  9. @SrPx They’re all valid points, so from my part, nothing to disagree with here. @R C-R True, but he said “which currently means“ — so I think that in the future (even if a distant one), will be pretty much, to all the people (my wish, at least, driven by my (I’d say “selfish, but I’m sure everyone hope the same) need to see it happen; having everything I could possible need in one place, in THIS place, is, even if by a long shot, desired and possible. iuli
  10. I’ve read yesterday that Adobe has presented its upcoming Photoshop CC for iPad, which in my opinion will just be to little for Adobe to “fight” Serif; CC looks ugly, it’s largely the same interface, it’s like Adobe just took the desktop PS and squeezed it on mobile. The general consensus in comments sections (macrumors article) is that Affinity apps are superior (and they’re talking from the perspective of working on a iPad) to Adobe, which I agree with. People don’t understand why should they leave AF, since is doing almost everything that PS do, and has everything optimized to work with touch gestures. People working with desktop programs should at least try the mobile versions, they may be surprised how much it can be achieved with gestures instead of a mouse. And just wait until Serif will improve AD (while AF became great with version 1.6, I think AD will become incredible when 1.7 will arrive), no one will give a penny about Adobe on mobile. I don’t agree with people defending Affinity lack of some features (especially because all of them will become eventually available here, not some cheap tool clones, but innovative, in affinity’s way) with this childish “we’re not a PS replacement”. Of course you are; affinity is not just an alternative to Adobe; is better in many ways, and slowly will become absolutely superior to it. So, will Affinity truly be able to replace PS? — again, they already do; IMO the future of graphics is all mobile; that’s the reason why Adobe is investing in it, I believe; and forget about the subscription they’ll bring to iOS (and that’s something that everyone hates), do anyone really see PS having the same easy-to-use brilliance Affinity has in its apps? I don’t think so. In ten years, people will forget the greedy Adobe ever existed; the future is mobile, and the future is Affinity (as cheesy as it may sound, I truly believe it). iuli

    There has to be a prehistoric Ahab behind that whale; I wonder how a sinking Pequod would look like painted in this wonderful style:)

    True TRIM Tool

    Besides the rude and patronizing tone of the OP, I agree with the suggestion that a trim tool would be a very useful implementation in AD. What AD does, like the above copy-inside function, is just perfect, but I think trim tool is much more important than that and indeed would make certain tasks a breeze, versus what we have to do now to accomplish the same results other softwares (worst than AD in almost every aspect) are doing with a simple click. I don’t understand however why certain users are coming to these threads just to downplay the importance of certain very good additions, when these forums are just (I believe, at least) about this: to make AD a better experience in the future. No one has the right to say that these tools, or changes, have to be implemented now or next year, and I don’t think this is even possible when there are enough bugs in the iPad app (and some of them a real pain to work with) that haven’t been addressed in months. I have no problem with them now, for everything is a work around, and I wait patiently for the next update — but I like to think that, in a distant future at least, better pressure curve for pen, trim tool, exporting vectors files with all my effects in place as vectors and not rasterized, etc, etc — are possible. Seeing in so many threads old members coming and smashing almost any good suggestion because it can be done with extra work, or because they don’t need it so no one should, or because we should leave affinity if we need tools that other softwares have (I’ve seen this in a topic regarding AI) is, to be honest, discouraging. I know some of these features aren’t even in discussions to be implemented in the desktop version, let alone the iPad, so it will take years to work with them in AD, but just knowing there’s a tiny chance to have them, eventually, makes my waiting more... bearable? iuli
  13. Hello & thank you for replying. I haven’t had any more problems with the app size in almost a month. I’ve also never sent files directly between Affinity and any other app since then, instead I’ve saved all my files from Graphic (or other apps) in Files as SVG and I’ve dragged them into Designer from there (in this way the bug never came back). I don’t remember to have any open projects when I’ve had sent the files from Graphic to Designer. (Also, at the moment when I’ve had reported about this bug, my iPad was running on iOS 11) Right now, the size of the inbox folder form iTunes is of course very small, under 1mb in size (4 files with gradients and brushes). I'm sorry for not being of any help. Regards, iuli

    Soccer Player

    Nice animated cartoon, but if you’d ask me, I’d say your character (judging by its posture) is a basketball player with a ‘soccer’ ball, lost in a ‘soccer’ field (which is what makes it funny for me)
  15. I’m using Break, Close and Join commands quite a lot in my work, so not having all of them easy to access in the 9.7 version of the app it is an issue for me. Why not having a single node tool menu, without the need to expand it for getting those commands? Making the menu a little smaller will fit perfectly in the app in my opinion; after all, the vast majority of AD users are working with Apple Pencil (or other pens for air 2) and selecting those commands, even if they’re smaller, wont be a problem at all, I think. (And I don’t think I’m alone in this; the new (much more affordable) iPads have Apple Pencil support and they’re 9.7, so why not unlocking the full potential of designer for all of your users?) Best regards, iuli
