Designer on ipad ugly brush strokes

Recommended Posts

This has been an ongoing issue. There was an interesting post by ex Apple software engineer who identified this as a longtime iOS software programming issue. He/she stated that most other developers implement a simple workaround involving ignoring the initial touch data to avoid that dot forming. I haven't seen any comment from affinity in relation to that post. Might be true, might be crap. Regardless, the issue persists.

Hi shustovcreates,

Thanks for letting us know - This is something we're aware of - I'll get it bumped with development.

Thanks for the post DM1, thats quite interesting - I'll pass that on as well.

I have the same issue, i posted again it here. It looks like app is trying to define the direction you writing before you start going on any direction and does those circular strokes at the start. They probably should apply an extra code that says when you don't move or move less than 0.5mm to make just a dot, btw i can't make dots with it.

This is the biggest reason why I only use pixel persona in affinity designer. The second biggest reason is the lack of a vector erasing tool beyond masking.

Have you tried using Sculp feature on pencil tool. Not exactly an 'eraser' but you can draw around nodes to remove them to reshape the image.

Y'know, I haven't used on iPad yet! I used it on my surface with a keyboard handy – the issue is the kind of lines that I am making. My artwork is more like individual brush strokes, so it's less of reshaping one continuous shape as much as it is removing any ends of the strokes that appear in my path... Something like this comic making program's vector eraser is what I'm thinking of. Something that allows artists to quickly brush on vectors, and then use an eraser to obliterate multiple curves along their path.
