Auto saving documents to iCloud without hitting the „save“ button

Recommended Posts

I am having a question / feature request: 
why is Affinity photo (and designer) not Auto saving a document that I just created? I always have to hit „save“ via the custom context menu (which I wish btw will be an iOS 13 context menu at some point) in the gallery view. On iOS, I am used to that all documents I create will auto save to iCloud or to the local storage at least. 
is there a specific reason why Affinity photo does not auto save a new document? 

I use affinity photo to focus stack macro shots on the go, and then edit them on the Mac. It took me a lot of time to figure out why those affinity photo documents where not visible on iCloud Drive on the Mac. Until recently I hit the save button in that context menu. I am not used to save something on iOS... 

Please implement this auto saving feature which would make Affinity a little bit more iOS friendly. Remember, this is not macOS, some elements could be a little bit more iOS-ish.

And I hope that some point, contextual menus find there way into affinity as well as other normal iOS UI elements.
