  1. I can't even begin to explain how useful an Affinity alternative to the Quickshape (Procreate) or Snapline (Adobe) feature would be. 😊 The ability to draw a pixel line, circle, or rectangle by hand, and then hold the stylus/mouse down for a second for it to become a 'perfect' shape. It would be a total game changer and save so much time, especially for anyone using Affinity apps for illustration or digital artwork.
  2. Hi there. Just found out that you are restricted in terms of file location on iPad. Is there a logical reason why Designer and Photo do not support locations like Google Drive? Why is a proper exchange / sync workflow only allowed within the Apple ecosystem? Even iOS now lets you use Chrome as your default browser
  3. Hello everyone! I recently purchased the Affinity Suite and am very much a novice with vector programs (but having a lot of fun learning!). What I'm trying to do seems very simple, but after an hour of Googling and trying things, I still can not figure out how to fill in the area between two, non-intersecting curves in Designer. I saw a solution here that seems related, but not exactly what I'm looking for. I've attached a photo illustrating what I'm trying to achieve. Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
  4. Hello, for iPad, on Affinity Photo, I would like to create the color image palette on color chart. I did not find it. But for Mac and PC, it already exists. I show you the attached picture. Thank you for helping me.
  5. Since there is no tracing option for Affinity Designer yet, I usually use the vector brush tool to trace the outline of a drawing to get the shape. But I don't usually get this accomplished in one continuous line. Therefore, I have to use the node selection tool (white arrow) to join the pathway segments together. As I was attempting to do so on my iPad Pro, my vector pathway would start accumulating quite a bit of nodes. Eventually, it would no longer allow me to join another curve pathway without crashing. When I reopen the file, it was a version of the file that was at least 2 saves back from my recent saved version. However, when I open the file and try the same process on the macOS version, everything works fine. I am able to join more curves and save the file as expected. I can only assume this is either a bug with iOS 14 and Affinity Designer or it is a deliberate hampering of the computing power of the iPad Pro by Affinity. Has any one else experienced this issue? I am running the latest version of iPadOS 14.0.1 and the latest version of Affinity Designer on both operating systems.
  6. Good afternoon Affinity Team, Could you please advise, how I can access Affinity during Photo edit sessions on my iPAd, though the Photos App, as I can through my MacBook Pro?
  7. Hey guys! - I'm just plugging a YouTube tutorial I did on how to create your own beskar steel using Affinity Photo & Affinity Designer. I've also got a few other tutorials up on my page that you might wanna check out. I suspect forum users are already pretty savvy to a lot of the techniques etc, but there may still be something of interest there for some of you. Hope everybody's doing well and hanging in there during these chaotic times. Cheers! Beskar Steel Tutorial
  8. So I tried Illustrator for iPad... it turns out Serif doesn’t have any competition 😅 for starters, the pen tool was kinda janky especially when closing a shape(if Adobe can’t even get the basics right...), no width variance features for strokes or corner smoothing, and for €10 a month!? Vector software has to at least get these fundamentals working out of the box or it’s a 👎 from me. Anyone lose have a better experience?
  9. Everytime I try to export slices the file output is always the wrong dimensions. Everytime i export something it exports as 1920x1080. I need my exports to be 64x64 px. What could be causing it to export with the wrong dimensions? I should note that I dont use artboards in my current projects setup. Could this possibly have something to do with the wrong exported file dimensions?
  10. Hi fellow Affinity users. Having been confined to the house during the Covid pandemic I have taken the opportunity to update the Designer PDF help file to version There have been numerous additions in this version so you may benefit from updating. I hope you find it useful. I have attached a copy of the PDF version of the Affinity Designer IPad apps built in Help file directly to this post. See below. (I have also attached a Dropbox “link” to a PDF version). Both files are the same. File size is 10 mb. I have also provided a higher resolution version (26mb) where small icons may be clearer. You can open the PDF file in a reader or iBook allowing you to view and search the help file while working on a document in Affinity Designer. All links within the document should be working. I hope you find it as useful as I do. Please note that this PDF is not in any way supported by Affinity, nor are they responsible for any errors or omissions, so please do not refer any errors or omissions in the Document to Affinity. Every attempt has been made (by me) to ensure the content is an accurate representation of the built in Help file, however some errors 'may' have slipped through . I will endeavour to keep it up to date (at least for a little while) . When Publisher comes out I may redo the layout (Pages is a little limited in the area of indexing). My Dropbox account is basic and limits daily bandwidth, if you experience a problem downloading just try again next day. Here is the DropBox link (or simply download the attached zip file at the bottom of this post. The attached file has been reduced to a 10mb file size, see Dropbox link for higher res copies). https://www.dropbox.com/sh/wulycsq0un4uo6i/AACz5hvGbGrteZB4E9q_HPI5a?dl=0 Enjoy Dave Affinity_Designer_Help_File_1.8.3.2.zip
  11. With install on iPad from Apple store how many installs are there?
  12. Hi, I load a photo from the Photos app and select the foreground as trying sky replacement. I then use refine for around the trees and other areas missed. I choose Output to New Layer or New Layer with Mask Affinity crashes. is this a bug or am I doing something wrong? thanks Ade. Using Affinity IPad 1.8.6 on iPad Air 3rd gen with iPadOS 13.6.1
  13. With the abilities to drag and drop, and edit Affinity native file format in both AD and AP, it will be more efficient if these apps could do split view or slide over on iPad. I imagine that it can even do drag and drop not only an image but also layers and vector objects between AD and AP. Here’s my concept below.
  14. I'd like to be able to sample a trial version of both Affinity Photo for PC/Mac AND for iPad to test how files can sync. I have the trial for the computer but am reluctant to spend the $20 for the iPad app just to try it out. If the trial verisions show me that Affinity Photo does what I need, then I'll gladly buy both items. :)
  15. I'm trying to create a curve evenly distributed between two other curves, but can't figure out how to do it in Affinity Designer on my iPad. I've attached an example of what I'm trying to do. I would like to have the red line to be exactly in the middle of the two other black curves. I'm a little new to Affinity Designer. I know this can be done easily on Illustrator using the Blend Tool, but I don't believe that exists on the iPad version of Affinity Designer. Any suggestions/help would be appreciated.
  16. As you can see in the attached video, I can’t isolate node handles EVEN when I press and hold on the screen. Am I doing something incorrect? Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn’t. I seem to have the most problems when I’m zoomed in and the nodes are close together, however, I need to get into tight corners and the only way to do that is to zoom in. Is this a bug or user error? Thank you! IMG_1895.MP4
  17. When the iPad is backed up to desktop computer, not to iCloud, are the files saved in Affinity Photo restored to the iPad if the iPad is rebuilt/restored from that backup or are those files lost? The files I'm asking about are not stored to iCloud or to Files or anywhere outside of the app.
  18. Past 3 days encountering random crashes. Working on a simple node edit AD crashed, returning to the iPad’s Home Screen. Returning to the project it would randomly crash regardless of the attempted operation. Crash has been occurring after 3-8 mins of use. It consistently happens when attempting to return to my gallery from any project. I updated to iOS 14 2 days ago with the same results. App Store auto updates turned ‘on’. Help!
  19. Hi all I am fairly new to affinity designer and this kind of software on general. I drew a shape using the pencil tool and without realizing what expand stroke does I selected it. Is there a way to undo this? I tried selecting all and converting to curves and I tried using the divide option but so far nothing. Thanks!
  20. I just noticed that AD on iPad is taking up over half my storage at like 17gb. I know I have low storage already with the base iPad model but I mainly just work on icon designs and use small artboard sizes. I have about 33 project files and the largest file size is about 746kb, according to my iPad storage data. I recently updated to iPadOS 14 and noticed this issue. I never had an issue before updating my iPadOS, I check my storage capacity often because OCD. I have all my files saved to iCloud and I closed all of them. Could this be an issue with iPadOS?
  21. Hello everyone, when I export my drawings and handwritten text in curves format (pdf, eps, svg) I get these "forks" and prolonged lines at some places. These forks and lines are nowhere to be seen on the screen (they are just not there, also no hidden layers) and they are also not there, when I export in jpg, png. I get them only when I export in curves. I need the document in curves but without the extra lines and forks. Here shown at text, but happens also with drawings. Thank you for your help.
  22. Many of us artist, illustrator and designers had some experience by using adobe's software when we started. I took a look around the recent adobe illustrator app in order to see what features they have I bring here a video that I review the Adobe Illustrator app, and I make some comparisons with Affinity. I have to say, Affinity is a very awesome tool and it's just one time purchase Of course, tools like Mirror / Repeat / Erase tool / Quick Shortcuts / Smoothing Nodes during the Pencil Tool Would be very welcome to the Affinity on Ipad Here is my honest review Have you tested this app? what you guys like most and wanted to see on the Affinity?
  23. See attached, I have created a mask which is not feathered at all currently. I need to apply a feather to the mask. How do I do this? ** Photo on iPad
  24. Here’s a suggestion, Serif need to capitalise on the fact the recent Illustrator release for iPad is brutal. Demonstrate how you get way more bang for your buck in terms of features and abilities, and all without being locked into a subscription. Seriously, get some live demos out there while the iron’s hot and steal the limelight. Designer has so much potential, routing for y’all 🤘
  25. Hello everyone! currently running the 1.8.6 and I have a problem. After updating to iOS 14.0.1, I can’t open any raw document, nor duplicate them. The app work with jpegs
