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

    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
  2. As stated above; apologies if this bug has been acknowledged already; video proof: IMG_8066.MP4
  3. Sorry for bumping this, but after an hour of manually putting swatches back into Designer I feel the need to reiterate that missing the ability to import/export swatches is a huge issue; this is an essential feature that should not miss even in the early stages of any graphic software, vector or not. Please bring it to iPad because without it the app (otherwise amazing) is incomplete. Kind regards, iuli
  4. Thanks for the advice but I don’t see that option on iPad
  5. Thanks for the info; all my affinity files are not linked to the app and when clicking them they open to show the preview and they not automatically open in Designer as they did before updating to iPadOS. Since they’re showing right on your side it clearly has something to do with my device, even if I have no idea what is causing this. Regards
  6. Thank you for the reply; the extension is .afdesign
  7. ...for both Photo and Designer (1.7.2, iOS 13.1.1); thumbnails are shown however for other photo/drawing apps so it might have something to do with Affinity (if I’ve missed something and they can be somehow ‘activated’, any help is much appreciated) Kind regards, iuli (edit, uploaded another image since brushes aren’t shown anyway)
  8. 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.
  11. 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?

  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. There’s no issues when using pencil and brush tool. 503BC549-0BB1-409F-A5D6-025F2315AA4F.MP4
  15. 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
