  1. Designer 1.6.1.93 Surface Pen right click doesn't work at all, so I have no way to call right click menu with the pen. It slows down everything. Touches are still equal to pen strokes, this is NOT right, please make the app distinguish them from pen strokes, cause each touch paints things and it destroys the experience. Moreover touch can add more functionality by performing operations of for example Move/select tool while you're actually using any other mode, more convenient, more functional, isn't it? Thank you
  2. I have only been able to find the last post dated from july 30/18 on the subject, at that time mentions no other stylus's work with AF. Is there an update to that and a stylus that will now work with Affinity Photo on my 5th gen Ipad? Any help would be greatly appreciated. :-)
  3. Hello, What happened to the feature on Ipad that color picker appears when I press the pen 2sec on the screen? It was really useful in my workflow for blending colours... How can I pick/blend colors in the easiest and most efficient way now? Thanks, N.
  4. Here is a copy of the review I wrote for the iPad version as I just dont wanna have to type it all up again. Currently on 5th Gen iPad (non pro) with Adonit Pixel Stylus (unsupported by app) I use the app a lot and it is comparable to adobe illustrator for ipad. I do have a few gripes with it though. If you do not have an iPad Pro then you are pretty screwed. It does not support any 3rd party stylus pressure sensitivity and since a normal iPad only supports 3rd party stylus, you might as well be using your finger. I own an Adonit Pixel which is top of the line but yah not supported by Affinity Designer. Also the App was crashing all the time for me and freezing up and it took me a while to figure out that it was because I was trying to work on a large file size. I would image it might be more stable on the pro but I don’t know. So if you need to print in high resolution for posters or what ever, you need to work in low res and then export it as a high resolution (just took me a while and a lot of frustration to figure out what was causing all the freeze ups). I like that they give you freedom on document size but they should make it clear that high file size might cause instability, I wanted to throw my iPad through a wall a few times and if they just made that clear it would have saved me a lot of frustration. So to sum it up, probably fantastic if you own an iPad Pro but leaves a lot to be desired on a normal current gen iPad sadly. Also looks like they only update it like once every 2 months it seems not sure why they are not giving the iPad version much love. I would much rather have a good version on my iPad than on a macbook or what ever. 3/5 stars - I would give this 5 stars if they added 3rd party stylus support/pressure sensitivity and I dinged an extra star for all the frustrations I went through figuring out what was causing the freezing/crashes.
  5. It has been pointed out numerous times since this was released for Windows 10.... they have not added use of the button on the pen. It makes using the device as often intended (in tablet) impossible for many features like clone. I'm glad they could make sure to have this working for the iPad Pro, but a year later we are still begging for this to be fixed. This is embarrassing.
  6. Hi: Is there any way I can use a Huinonn1060 Plus with Affintiy Photo? Are there special drivers required? Generic drivers? Temp work arounds? thank you Donald
  7. I just purchased Affinity Photo for windows and cant wait to get started drawing. I noticed as soon as I hover over the screen with the stylus it acts like the hand tool dragging the canvas all over the place. Is there an area I need to configure settings to stop this from happing?
  8. Loving Affinity so far! A quirk I can't find any info on in this forum relates to the appearance of the brush head when using the Surface Pen. (I'm on a Windows 10 Surface Studio.) When selecting the overlay tool, my mouse's cursor will display the brush as I manipulate it around the file; when using the Pen it shows nothing -- though the tool itself still paints on the image. Any ideas? Thanks!

    Weird Wacom Stylus issue

    I have a weird issue with my Wacom stylus. When using Affinity Photo it works, almost everywhere. Selecting tools, moving image boundaries etc. It also works in the Adjustments / Layers / Effects area. I can select one of the bars - for example 'Exposure' - and then move the Exposure slider left and right. All good. The issue happens when I try and select a Preset for those adjustments. I tap the stylus on the preset thumbnails, and they 'flash' once as if they have been selected. But nothing happens to the image. I thought it was a Wacom / Affinity issue but then I happened to try selecting the Preset thumbnail with my finger rather than the stylus (I have the Wacom touch pad version). My finger is able to select the presets, the thumbnail flashes and the image changes to suit the preset, however, the stylus can not, despite the thumbnail flashing to indicate it has been selected. With both my finger and the stylus the thumbnail flashes to indicate selection, but only my finger actually change the image. Any ideas?
  10. Hi, Does anyone know if Affinity will have the support for the Wacom Bamboo Sketch stylus on the ipad in the near future? I'm currently using the apple pencil but it feels like I'm scratching on wood with it. There's only a handful of apps that support the Bamboo Sketch I was hoping Affinity would soon have the support as well. Or am I barking up the wrong tree, is it Wacom I should be approaching for this?
  11. Hello, In an effort to transition from Photoshop to Photo, I thought I'd try to at least establish a freehand sketch for a design I'm working on in Photo rather than Photoshop. I tend to use a simple hard round brush with shape dynamics enabled in PS and Jitter determined by Pen Pressure. With Photo, I've selected an equivalent brush under the Basics and set Size Jitter to Pressure under Dynamics. So far so good. The problem I'm experiencing is that when I sketch a freehand curved line in Photo, the precision isn't quite there. The curve I draw is often made up of a series of small (and sometimes not so small) straight lines rather than following the pen exactly. It's as if the software is unable to keep up with the pen and interpolates between two points along the movement of the pen. Photoshop doesn't do this. Has anyone experienced this? Is it a known issue and if so, will it be addressed? Having the line follow the pen exactly is critical Thanks, -grant

    Pen performance poor

    I've noticed that Affinity Designer sometimes slows down drastically when I'm using a stylus. I'm not talking about drawing in particular; interacting with the UI is even worse. Simple things like locking a layer or selecting a color sometimes take several seconds. Everything suddenly performs as expected when I use the trackpad instead.
  14. Pen latency has been on my mind since the new Surface Pro and iPad Pro were announced. I enjoy drawing in Affinity Designer with the brush tool, and I really like some of the fancier brushes, but the appearance of new lines always lags behind my drawing pretty drastically. When using elaborate brushes, would it be practical for Affinity Designer to draw a plain, unstyled line under the stylus immediately and then draw the fancy brush version over it?
  15. I am interested in a STYLUS that will work on my iPad Air 2 . Would this be a tool to use for editing with Affinity?
  16. Hi, Does anyone have any experiences of using an iPad with a stylus as a graphics tablet for Design, Photo or really any other software on their computer where using a pen is better. I've narrowed it down to the following three apps 1. Astropad Graphics Tablet 2. Air Display 3 3. Duet Display I've bought the Bamboo Fineline 2 stylus which works quite nicely on the ipad in different apps. I downloaded the Astropad mini (free) which says you can't use it on the ipad, but actually you can draw behind the big splash screen to test it out. It flows very nicely without any noticable lag for me. I felt the flow of drawing, and it translated to the computer screen with ease. I tested it with AD, AP & Mischief (free version). The only drawback I see is that when something moves it pixelates coarsely, so videos are grainy, but also the "running ants" selection is blurred in AD and AP. I also downloaded Air Login - from the same company as Air Display 3 - which was very laggy, although I don't know if AD3 works with the same connection. (I'm mailing with the maker.) I haven't been able to check out Duet Display. What's you're story? cheers, Luke
  17. I wish there is a better and more precise cursor in the next update. (At least a crosshair option available) As in the attached gif file. It's hard to see the center point of the cursor and also the size of the brush related to my stylus pressure (I'm using Wacom tablet).
  18. Currently both ends of the Wacom pen act as the same tool while drawing. Also, when switching between the brush and eraser tools, it would be nice if the size of each respective tool would remain independent from the other. Changing the size of the eraser shouldn't affect the size of the brush, and vice-versa.
