relink images in affinity designer ipad


Recommended Posts

situation
I've created a document in Affinity Publisher on the desktop and I want to continue editing the document on the iPad. 
The file opens in Affinity Designer on the iPad as expected.
Everything is there but some of the images (my logo amongst them) are blurred. 

questions
- How to re link images in affinity designer on ipad?
- Or how do I make sure (placed) images are embedded in affinity documents?

extra info
Replacing the image with the document menu: [placing image] look great again but sadly it results in the same blurred image after you close affinity designer, re-open affinity desiger and open the file again.

On the desktop, Designer would prompt you when opening the file if the images cannot be found, and allow you to locate them (or use the Resource Manager, which is only available when opening a document). But this is a rather primitive approach, available only as a backup option because Designer is not supposed to use Linked files.

It sounds like Designer on the iPad may not have even that limited functionality.

In Publisher, when you create your document you can specify as part of File > New that you would prefer to have files embedded, rather than linked. You can also change that preference for an existing document using File > Document Setup, and you can change any currently Linked files to Embedded using the Resource Manager (Document > Resource Manager).

Has this been sorted out for iPad solely?

Think you may have to explain what your problem is, the issue described above was regarding two different filing systems so naturally linked files could not be found on a different filing system, hence Resource Manager was used to change linked files over to embedded files. This would clearly cover any filing system, say changing from Mac to PC or PC to iPad etc.

Paul, I guess this post was regarding the transition between Publisher and Designer. However linking images into a document on designer on iPad is possible but I don't currently see a way to re-link image links in an Affinity Designer iPad document. Am I missing something or is this still not a feature?

If you open a document that has images linked rather than embedded you get this message when opening to try and find the linked file.

Paul you are correct and that’s great. Beyond that is there anyway to re-link items manually in the iPad version?

This is a manual method, you have to search through your photo albums or the files area in a cloud location to find each file. There is no Resource Manager in the current iPad version.

I think that is what I was trying to verify then. Is there a request for that in a future update yet? That would be very useful for my current workflow.
