  1. Two “Save” issues: 1) With both Affinity Designer, and Photo, the "Share" button will not work. It has been this way on my iPad Pro for several revisions of both programs. I was expecting a bug fix, but it hasn't happened yet. The Share button will depress, but nothing happens. If I press it a second time quickly, it will not depress again. If I wait 10 seconds or so, it will depress again, but still nothing happens. 2) The second problem is regarding the Export of slices in Affinity Designer. No matter what I try, it will only open iOS's "Files" app, but the option to save anything does not appear. I can change and traverse folders. I always select Designer folder "On My iPad" that I have saved other works in from affinity, but no save button appears ... you only have the default functions of the Files app. iPad Pro 2 512 iOS 11.X Designer 1.6.4.45 Photo 1.6.10.83 BTW ... does anyone know if there is a way to directly save to the iOS’s Photo app when using picture formats? I have a workaround but it is cumbersome. Thanks

    Affinity Designer & Photo NOT SAVING!! (several conditions) I thought I would post in this thread also considering it appears to be a Files.app related bug. Regarding number two, the export problem, I would be surprised if it is an iOS bug because I use Files.app regularly with dozens of other apps and no problems.

  3. OK, thank you Lance. I think I will need to do the same. Good luck. Yes Walt, it appears I have posted in the wrong forum. The links that took me here we’re somewhat misleading. But thank you. I’ll try finding the right one.
  4. Walt, Anyone? I don’t know how I’ve done it, but it appears I have overwritten the original FX styles that came as default. I was careful to only save a style when I was in my own category I had labeled “bills styles”. If anyone has a clue as to the error in my ways, please advise! But then, I have noticed wonky behavior saving styles before. But most of all, I would really really like to get the default FX styles back with out having to delete and reinstall Affinity on my iOS device ( and of course exporting all my projects on iOS out of Affinity and back in again). Can anyone advise the best way to do this? Unfortunately I didn’t use some of the ones I really liked, else I could re-create the style from one of my objects in a project. Thanks, Bill
  5. I certainly can edit line styles. Not only did I create my own but I accidentally overwrote the defaults. Does anyone know how to get those back? I’m a newbie but yes, the system seems clumsy and difficult. Does anybody know if you can tie a style to specific brushes? That would be really nice. I found the same problem. What I’ve learned to do to reduce frustration working with styles, is I will apply the FX style to the whole layer. So in other words, add drop shadow to the whole layer. Then instead of applying to each object, then draw all your drop shadow objects on the designated layer. If anyone has a better workaround, or if I am not using styles properly, please let me know. Thanks
