  1. Hi, I was recently experimenting with making adjustments to my Paint Brush tool under the "more" tab next to the "hardness" selector. After unsuccessfully creating a new brush, I reset the options. Now the brush tool does absolutely nothing. Doesn't work in masks, doesn't work by simply trying to paint different colors. Ive triple checked everything, opacity is 100%, flow 100%, Hardness adjustments, etc etc. I even uninstalled and re-downloaded the program to find that the brush tool is still not working. I attached a screen shot of the Brush "More" tab opened to see if that helps. Anyone have any suggestions? Thank you!
  2. When using the paint or eraser tools on the iPad is there anyway of showing where I am drawing? Like on the laptop (Image below)?
  3. OK, I've given Affinity for ipad a good try now. I've gone from super happy, totally impressed to now getting ready to dump this app as it is useless and frustrating to use for drawing and annotation. The main reason I bought it. I simply need to mark precise colored lines onto various layers that overlap a base map. Every frigg'n time I select a color like bright yellow and start to draw, the app switches to eye dropper mode to change my color. AHHHHHHHHHH I HATE THIS and it's driving me crazy. Unless someone knows how to stop (or better yet increase the auto-option enable time by 5 - 10X ), I'm done!!! Really unfortunate as the app already has all the tools and interface in place to be awesome. If this ever gets fixed and I will get the new version.
  4. I've just started using Affinity for ipad and am impressed!!! One of my uses is to take my ipad out to various residential properties to create fire fighting pre-plans by sketching on top of property images captured by Google Earth. I use a small selection of colors to indicate the degree of danger- red for hydro lines, gas, propane tanks- yellow for less dangerous obstacles like fences and heavy bush etc... The paint tool way too often decides to switch to the color picker mode right when I'm carefully starting to place my colored line. Please is there a way to shut the auto picker off? Thanks
  5. When I was using photoshop I was able to buy Kyle Webster custom brushes. These don't work in Affinity. What do I use for custom brushes? Are there natural looking brushes that come with affinity or that can be purchased? I'm really concerned about how I'm going to draw, paint and erase to look like art rather than computer obvious stuff.
