  1. Today a Windows 10 "balloon notification" informed me about an issue with "apps which drain the battery" on my Surface Pro 4. Under "Settings -> Battery usage by App" Affinity Photo is listed with 49% "background usage" on position one! (I attached a screenshot from the Windows settings page.) I already posted another issue about the "Huge processor usage" if I use the selection tool. But I guess, this is not the same problem here, because its "background usage" this time. Does anybody experience the same battery usage problems?
  2. Hi all, I have been thinking about buying a drawing tablet to use with Affinity Designer and have spent a bit of time trying to make sense of all the options. Then it occurred to me that I have a (rather elderly) iPad 2 lying almost unused and maybe that could be used as a drawing tablet...... And, heck, there are a lot of options here too. Two main questions to find answers to: which software to go for, and which stylus? After some reading, it looks like AstroPad is one good option, or Duet. No free trials unfortunately, so no chance to try them first.
  3. Hiya, I'm about to purchase both Affinity photo and designer as I've been very impressed with their performance in the free trial. I'm also considering purchasing a Wacom Intuos Pro tablet and want to know if Wacom support Affinity applications? I'm using an iMac. many thanks Pete
  4. I know it's a bit early to be requesting features on the iOS apps, but seriously, this would be all kinds of awesome. Handoff is typically used to sync up the state of an app and then let it go do what it wishes, but there is also an option to open a data stream (continuation stream) between the two platforms. From there, you can make edits on one and have them reflect on the other. Notably, they would not have to reflect one another's view, so one can be zoomed and the other show the big picture. The user would be able to use both platforms at the same time, editing one file and choosing
  5. Installed and did some basic things withthe new 1.6.0.71 beta. Simple steps to reproduce on my system 1. open a file or a blank document 2. select brush 3. select forground colour (e.g. red) 4. Paint using wacom pen 5. nothing happens. Using the mouse however it's fine. All these steps work fine in the latest 1.5.2.69 In addition when I activate Stabilizer I have no choice to deactivate due to an unvisible cursor. I know it's a very early beta but why is the basic funcionality not more careful tested before making the version available (even on betas the basics f
  6. I am looking to upgrade a really really old Wacom Graphire 2 tablet, but I would like a tablet that would allow me to have the most functionality and options in the brush settings. In other words I want all the whistles--tilt, rotation support, if possible!
  7. Having issues with the brushes and my intuos wacom tablet. the curves come out choppy, and the flow of the brush on screen its weird. don't want to compare but I've tried other softwares for drawing and the tablet works fine.
  8. Hi folks. I can use the pen tool now, after the bezier game! I thought I'd put my copy of AD to proper use, illustrating that is, not just page layout mode. All this despite 'losing' a borrowed drive for a Tevion tablet. Never mind being unable to find my Epson scanner power supply...any way this is for you the AD community, the AD Team at Serif labs (And the Drawplus team for getting me hooked on DrawPlus in the 1st place). A big thank you goes out to you CartoonMike and that awe inspiring tutorial earlier: for pushing me over the edge and well into the abyss of time, know as cre
  9. Hi all! I'm writing this 'cause I have a couple of issues using the Insproy G10T tablet with Affinity Designer, and I'm not sure where the issue lies.This tablet works just 20% of time in Affinity Designer. Sometimes it works well for the first couple of minutes, and then just starts to lag. Now, the issue here seems to be very specific: if you click something to select it, it takes a couple of long seconds to do so, unless you lift the pen all the way. Let me explain: if you lift the pen from the surface so that it still tracks the pointer, it doesn’t select/perform the action quickly at all
  10. As i searched some older posts, i found some very positive feedback about the drawing tablet from Huion. As i am searching to buy one, i want to know if this is still the latest one available. I have been searching all over google and found only this one as a good alternative from Wacom. The posts that i read here are from 2015, so i was wondering if the people who wrote back then are still so enthousiastic. (the one i have in mind buying: aliexpress Thank you for your reply.
  11. I just decided to get an entry graphics tablet. I do a little photo retouching with APh, and some of my design work in AD is quite repetive, so I can see a tablet with express keys coming in handy. Does anyone have experience with the UGEE M1000L it's a 4000 lpi. made by Huion, a smaller model to the popular 1060 Plus (5080 lpi). [EDITED] The deal was ending, so I just bought it anyway. Pease still respond, as I am still interested in members' observations and/or experiences. Is this tablet enough to get my feet wet? I have a 13" MacBook, but plan to get a 27" iMac soon. Would this size t
  12. Hello, I have had a look through the forum and did not find a topic about this or I may of missed it. I have a HP Spectre x360 and would like too know how to set up affinity designer for use in tablet mode as the keyboard when in tablet mode is on the underside of the screen so things link holding ctrl or shift are a problem, is their a way of setting up on screen keys without opening the onscreen keyboard as this blocks a large section of the screen making it unusable. Thank you for any help and suggestions. Regards Chris
  13. Hello, Since installing a new Huion tablet and updating to the latest Affinity Photo, I can add colour / erase with a brush to the original background image or a placed vector image, but not to new pixel layers. The brush preview appears empty of colour. Other tools appear to work normally with both pen and mouse. I have tried rolling back to an earlier version of Affinity 1.5.0.45 yet the bug still persists on both saved and new files. Other paint and imaging software have not been affected (Krita, MSPaint). OS: Win10 enterprise, updated Affinity Photo 1.5.1.54 Logitech K27
  14. I ordered a slightly used Wacom Intuos5 touch Small Tablet with pen, cable and wireless kit for $140 from a graduating Arts student. Does it sound like a good buy? Being a lefty I noticed Wacom's tablets can be flipped around and software switched. I know Huion has handedness settings but I still don't fancy rotating the tablet and have the labels upside down. My only concern is whether it will lag on wireless with AD or APh? I recall reading somewhere that USB cable is preferred. Can you advise me. Have Affinity staff got inhouse experience with this model (PTH-451) Thanks
  15. Hello I am really enjoying drawing and pixel painting on my Tablet. I have a Assus and remove my keyboard so that I can draw or paint more freely. I know this product is not meant for tablets, but it does perform wonderfully. My only problem is that to Undo, I must enter the File Menu each time. A undo or even the option to personalize the menu bar and add such a button would be great. I think PC/Tablets hybrids will become more popular especially among artist and designers. Who can afford a Wacom Tablet these days. My cheap Assus Tablet runs Affinity wonderfully, except for
  16. Windows Affinity Designer: I dug out my hardly-used Wacom Bamboo digital tablet today and have managed to activate pressure sensitivity for the peNcil tool and the vector Brush tool via the Controller menu. Wonderful! But can pressure sensitivity be applied to the Pen tool, too? I cannot seem to work it out.
  17. Hello, Clicking toolbar and menu buttons does not work with Wacom tablet stylus. I use Wacom Intuos Touch M with latest drivers on Windows 7. I can still draw using the pen with Pen/Pencil tools. Menu items got hovered, but not clicked. Touching works thought. Disclaimer, I'm new both to vector graphics and tablets. I suspect there could be a setting to enable it, but I failed to find it. Regards, Roman
  18. For Affinity Photo (maybe also on Designer) i use Photo with a Wacom tablet. My Problem ist: i have no Crosshair when i use "Paint Brush" ("Always show Brush Crosshair" is ON). I only see the Contour (without the a CrossHair in it) but this is not exactly enough for me. Sometimes i have the WindowsCursor instead the Brushoutline.... Can you fix this, because this is a "no go" for me i must return to evil Ph*** ;-) Thanks ps. by the way now, when i start a new Document i have the Crosshair! (when i use Paint Brush) In the Moment i open an old Document the Crosshair disapeard an the outli
  19. Can someone please give me a quick guide on how to set up a digital tablet. Specifically, how do you set up pressure sensitivity in regards to size/color/opacity, and other features in Affinity?
  20. Hello I would like to use the brush tool with pressure sensitivity that change only the flow of the brush, not the size. However, when i try to modify the jitter settings of the brush by disabling the size pressure jitter and enabling flow pressure jitter, the behavior of the brush does not change. When putting more pressure on the stylus, it still increases the size of the brush. I have tried in Affinity Designer 1.5.1.43 Vector + Pixel modes, and in Photo 1.5.1.54, and they act exactly the same. I am on Win10x64 with Wacom Intuos Pen & Touch M.
  21. I know graphics tablets questions have been asked a heap of times but looking at buying one for a project I have coming in February so need to know I'm getting kit that works first time. So my question is this: Will budget graphics display tablets such as XP-Pen 10 or Parblo Coast10 work and play well with Affinity software, or are they a disaster? Ive heard drivers can be tricky. I would like the Wacom Cintig 13HD but £600 is a lot of money to pay out in a very skint January.
  22. Big fan of Affinity, and I'm loving all the updates and community support! I've been using Affinity Design for sketching, and am having problems with small, quick strokes. These simply do not appear, as though Affinity is assuming they were mistaken taps. I've tried other programs, and haven't had this problem (and have checked my pen settings -- Huion tablet -- and it's picking up plenty of pressure). I'm using the Paint tool in Pixel Persona. Is there a way to turn off any pen assist features? No editing, filtering, etc? ( This is similar to a question I'd asked a while ago (
  23. Sorry but this is important to me. I know this feature has been requested before. But I have a reason to repeat this: I love Affinity Designer. Except for its lack of brush smoothing that drives me crazy. Meaning: when drawing w/ a Wacom tablet, the strokes are all wiggly and wobbly. Can we fix this? I'm willing to do whatever it takes, so that people around the world using your product can have this feature. Hire me for $10/month to do this. Autodesk Graphic (formerly iDraw) has it. Illustrator has it. Functioning brush tool is quite basic feature of a vector drawing program. I
  24. Hi, I am looking to buy Affinity Designer for Windows to use on a Surface tablet (Win10), but missed the Beta and there is no evaluation version yet. Could someone confirm if the UI is set up well for tablets and also if Touch is supported? Thank you!
