  1. As the title says, there is a significant lag or pause when I try to move points of a shape with my Apple Pencil. I guess the lag is also there when dragging with my finger, but it’s less visible. The points only move when I drag them for more than around 5mm on the screen. I am using the new IPad Pro 11“ and Affinity Designer Version 1.6.4.45. Here is a screen recording. In my opinion this makes it impossible to work precisely... 61F4593B-2225-4358-8A11-F27272B939E6.MOV
  2. Hi when using any brush with pressure control, the stroke goes mental and glitches out - making it impossible to see what I’m drawing. I’m up to date on all software and have no issues with any other illustration apps on my iPad. D542FB05-5721-4194-AF5B-734D1E01D91D.MOV
  3. Getting very odd artifacts while using the vector brush and the pencil in Affinity Designer for iPad. Ive tested this on 2 different iPads, and 2 different apple pencils, happens on both! Super frustrating and completely random every vector brush stroke. I know others are most likely experiencing this exact same problem. anyone have a work around or know a trick? affinity_Designer_bug.mp4
  4. The touch for gestures only is ignored....how annoying.(in the inpainting brush)

    Colour picker bug

    In both Designer and Photo, picking a colour with the colour picker works fine with a finger, but is unreliable with the pencil. Sometimes it’s fine, sometimes I hold my pencil over the colour and it eventually fills the outer circle, and sometimes I hold it as long as I can and the outer circle never fills.
  6. Probably on my top 10 most used features in Illustrator is the stroke width tool, which allows you to adjust the width of the stroke at each anchor point. This can somewhat be achieved using the Pressure tab within the pen line settings, but it isn't nearly as precise. A couple of solutions might be: Add a stroke width tool to allow anchor points to be adjusted. Within the pressure panel, display a point on the graph for every anchor point from the shape. And allow these to be adjusted only vertically on the graph by holding shift, so that they stay on the anchor points. Create a new panel in the pen menu that allows for a numerical value to be entered in for stroke width. Thanks for listening.
  7. Hello, is there any possibility that a future update for Designer will allow for the user to control the smoothing on a newly created line or fill? As an illustrator it is VERY important to be able to have what I draw get accurately reflected when I lift up the pencil. Currently Designer is making that decision for me (not cool). It feels like a program of this caliber should be able to offer the user that level of control. I would love to be able to turn smoothing off so I can actually draw what I am intending. Is there a possibility that that will be implemented in a future update? Also PLEASE add a vector based eraser tool! Thank you. Caleb
  8. Hello. I couldn't find a direct answer to this. Is there a way to sculpt a pencil line in the desktop version of Affinity designer. I love using this feature on the iPad and find the Pencil tool basically useless to me without it. Thanks,

    Apple pencil not working

    I’m experiencing something strange...all of a sudden my Apple Pencil doesn’t work anymore with Affinity Photo (in for example Procreate it keeps on working flawlessly as before). In Affiniy Photo it just does nothing. Did I perhaps disagle it somewhere? I cannot find were to select Apple Pencil. Thanks in advance!
  10. I would like the ability to control opacity from within the pencil tool— like an rgba set up. I would also like to be able to set the tool as a multiply (or other) type to quickly layer shapes and colors. As of writing I’m not sure if this is possible without going into the layer menu to adjust opacity and layer types.
  11. I'd like to request a feature/key press for the pencil tool behaviour that would allow you to close the curve you're drawing? In illustrator holding down the option key does this. Currently I'm drawing the curve, then I select the last node and snap it to the first node to close it. This is a step I'd rather not have to do over the course of possibly hundreds of curves. I could use the pen tool but sometimes the pencil feels more organic and is quicker when precision is not what you're after... would love to see this added to the 1.7 lineup, thanks for considering this. :-)
  12. @MEB I did a search but couldn't find anything... is it possible to close a curve when drawing a curve with the pencil tool. In illustrator holding down the option key works. Anything in designer like that? Currently I'm drawing the curve, then I select the last node and snap it to the first node to close it. This is a step I don't want to have to do over the course of possibly hundreds of curves.

    Vector Brush / Pencil cup

    Hi As already discussed in the “Affinity on iPad Questions” section (linked below text), it seems there is a bug when drawing with the vector brush tool and pencil tool. In some cases (mostly long curves) the end cup is displayed with the general stroke width, although it should have zero width since the handle for pressure at the end-point is pulled to the bottom. Screenshots, a video and the file are uploaded in the “Affinity on iPad Questions” section - link below. .
  14. Hi! so I started working on an illustration as first serious project in A designer. Thrilled! After trying out different brush settings I finally found what I was after. After tracing a bit the app started laffing and froze. The feel and quality is awesome and I hope there is a way around this. My settings were with pressure and it happens with stabilizer on. Is there any fix for this? greetz, c
  15. Hi there, my new iPad is on its way to my home. It will arrive in a few days, but I would love to buy the iPad version of Affinity Designer right now. Does anybody know, how I can buy an iPad App without an iPad? I tried to send it as a gift, but that doesn't work. And, which 3rd party pencil do you recommend for the iPad? I was about to order the Apple Pencil, but I really don't know if it's worth the money. Are there any pencils you can recommend for drawing and sketiching on the iPad 2018? Thanks in advance and cheers, Ken
  16. Recently I have had the problem with my pencil picking up the background color when I'm trying to paint with a different color. It's not only painting on masks but other situations also.
  17. Hi there, In Designer, when you've drawn a line (path) with the Pencil tool, and lifted your stylus, the path is 'done', and the Pencil is ready to draw the next path. ¿What if you want to Continue that same path – rather than just adding another one at its end? Pencil sketching is appealing because of its speed; it would no longer be any fun if you had to manually connect paths that you want to be a single one. Is there a modifier key to do continue from the last node of an already drawn path? I couldn't find one. If none exists, would this be a good feature for the Wish List? thanks in advance, - pbass
  18. Hi! Started to learn Affinity. I don't know how to make colouring in between multible pencil curves. It worked when I made single curve but if my area is between 4 curves, how to do it then? Please check attachment. I tried to find tutorials from youtube but... Thank You to everybody who tries to help me! Wagner
  19. Hi, I will get my iPad Pro next and I tried to figure out which pencil I should use for the Affinity app. Do you have any recommendations besides the Apple pencil? Thanks -Nick
  20. You can replicate the error if you have the brush tool and you resize the window either from the sides or corners of the affinity photo window, after that the pressure of any brush can be detected and gets like lineal the only way I found to fixed it is to close the application and open it again.
  21. Hey I'm new on Affinity, I used to work on Adobe. I'm not an english native speaker so I hope my explainations are clear... I used to draw on Illustrator. In this software when you draw a shape with the pencil tool, then you can select it and draw "over" the line to refine it, or extend it. In affinity designer if I draw a curve with the pencil tool above an other curve it creates a new curve, it doesn't change the old one... I don't know if you see what I mean... Is there an option to change that ? Thank you!
  22. hello I'm new here, so I'm not sure this is the right place for this topic. I'm drawing a portrait in designer, and using pencil tool. I'm using a wacom tablet, and I noticed that if I stop drawing the line I couldn't edit it with the pencil tool. I'm using the pencil tool mostly when I draw with my tablet's pen, and I'm very used to edit the line with the pen in my hand like I'm still drawing it but, I couldn't find a way to do this. it just stops acting like a pencil. is there a way for this? another thing is, theres maybe some hundred lines. -imagine a beard drawing- those lines are very close to each other -by the way designer's performance is still great even those tons of anchor points- without any lines selected, I'm picking node tool or move tool, but I'm unable to select any of the lines. I have to do this from the layers panel, so it's not coming handy. one more thing; when I hover any line with node or move tool it's not showing any anchor points etc. like smart guides. I used affinity competitor app more than ten years throughout my whole career. I guess I discovered affinity two years ago if I'm not mistaken or a year ago. couple of days ago I decided to use affinity for all my professional work. I loved the app a lot, I believe in what you people are doing, and I want to support you on the long run. I'm working 6 days a week 24/7 if I'm not sleeping, and I'm planning to give you tons of feedbacks as I do my work on affinity. I hope that's ok. I hope I will not make any developers angry. I will just right my thoughts in here so maybe some of them helps you.
  23. Howdy! I just bought Affinity for my iPad Pro and haven't yet gone through the tutorials. Do I need the iPencil to use Affinity correctly? What am I sacrificing if I don't have an iPensil? What is the best brand / model of an iPencil should I get. I'm choking on spending another $99. I welcome your advice. CD
  24. Hey, I would love to see a feature, which lets me continue or rebrush curves with the pencil tool by going over the selected path a second time. B
  25. In AP you can achieve a pencil sketch effect by taking your layer stack, 1) Desaturate with an adjustment layer. I use Channel mixer, and Grey output channel. 2) Layer/Merge Visible 3) Nest a new Invert adjustment within the new pixel layer 4) Also nest a new Live Gaussian Blur layer within the new pixel layer, radius around 1.6 5) Set the blend mode of the new pixel layer to Color Dodge See attachment for result. This also work if your layer stack already included various live adjustments. However this removes the ability to further edit the adjustments in the below layer stack because they have already been "rasterized" into the merged layer as well. More precisely their further modifications will not be reflected in the end result as if they have been done before the pencil sketch effect. Is there a way to achieve the same effect (blending math) and still be able to edit the preexisting adjustment layers and have them affect the result in the same way as if they have been modified before creating the pencil sketch effect?
