    Glad you agree as well, it would be so awesome to have this feature! :).

    Its pretty much the same layout with either or software, but the one thing I do like to do is: go to 'View' from menu and toggle the UI when I'm drawing in pencil. That pretty much pushes everything away and you only see the canvas. It's handy for sure.

    By the way - did you decide on the Surface book or iPad pro ? I was in that boat as well (though with the SP4), and ended up going with the SP4 due to having a full operating system :).

    I ended up going with the Surface Pro 6 just because I can use it for many other programs and the ease of file transfer from my camera, or external hard drive. I’ve only had it for a few days but I’m loving it! Do you have any favorite things or tips about the Surface Pro that you would suggest I look into? I haven’t used anything Microsoft based in a very long time. 

  2. I 100% agree! I’ve been debating on purchasing a surface book vs an iPad Pro and the first thing I noticed when messing around with the surface book in tablet mode vs the iPad was that I didn’t have the ease of the touch commands such as the two finger tap to undo...I didn’t think it would matter to me so much but it really makes a difference to have that touch friendly layout/commands. I noticed it when messing around with affinity designer( I haven’t tried photo yet...but I can imagine a similar scenario)

  3. Update: I went to Microsoft and tried it. You can use the vector brush tool with the surface pen in the same “drawing” motion that you can use on the iPad. 

    I’ve been debating purchasing an iPad Pro vs. a Surface Pro 6...I was messing around with the app on the iPad Pro at the apple store and one thing I liked a lot is you can use the Apple Pencil to essentially “draw” your vectors through the vector brush tool. Is there the ability to do this on Microsoft surface pro with the surface pen with the pc version of affinity designer? Or is it only for the iPad app?

    Yeah love the screen size, the extra real estate while you draw if fantastic, if you can afford the extra you won’t be disappointed.. mine is a 256GB I only got that size because I ditched my MacBook Pro.

    Yea I’m in a predicament where essentially my MacBook needs to be repaired because the keyboard and trackpad are no longer responsive. Apple deemed it a hardware problem and it’s about 4 yrs old and around a $500 repair...I can use it from home with an external keyboard/mouse though. But I miss the portability of being able to do my work elsewhere. So idk if I want to just use it from home until the external keyboard/mouse no longer work and go for the iPad for the portability...or what...I’m strongly contemplating a 12.9” but I can’t tell if I should go for the 256 GB...realistically I probably should. Financially I’m hesitant on upgrading to the 256 lol!

    I only have a humble iPad Air 2, but I’m glad I opted for the 64 GB version. I like the small size and low weight for easy handheld use, and if I were to upgrade to a Pro model I would probably be more than happy with the extra amount of ‘real estate’ offered by a 10.5″ screen, but everyone’s needs are different.

    Thanks for your input! Ya I definitely want a 10.5” minimum I think...such a tough decision lol
