Sooner or later everything will be OK

For new customers who doesn’t want to wait several years: The purchase of Affinity Designer for iPad from App Store might be still eligible for a refund. To request a refund from Apple users have to go to https://reportaproblem.apple.com and follow instructions.

The app provides excellent features at very small cost. For such small investment I’m happy to wait a bit longer for these admittedly annoying bugs to be fixed.🙂

It’s very annoying to have to sketch in Fresco or Procreate and then import to Affinity Designer to continue artwork. Very time consuming if using multiple pixel layers or want to add some pixel sketches.

So you’re saying Fresco and Procreate are also lacking necessary 'vector' features and so should they also be removed from App Store? The fact is, no app is 'perfect' so we make use of several apps to achieve what we desire. Yes it’s annoying, and hopefully features will be added/improved over time.

These are pixel only app as vectornator is a superior vector only app. But Serif try to sell Affinity Designer for iPad without usable pixel brushes, advertising:

With a single click, switch between full featured vector and raster workspaces. Just think about what that means… add raster brush texture to your illustrations, edit single pixels on icons, mask and add grain to your crisp vectors, enclose and clip pixel layers. This is true creative freedom and the possibilities are endless. 

and blobs at every pixel brushstroke. Over two years now without any attempt to fix. Just think about what that means…

Maybe a script that detects and deletes the blobs?

Yes, that’s not a good result. I'm not sure that serif haven’t 'attempted' to fix it, but any improvement made has been minor. I agree it needs fixing, but the app does many things well, so I still don’t support throwing the baby out with the bath water. If I relied on the app to produce an income I might be inclined to use Vectornator and Procreate for that work, at least till serif fix this issue.

That’s what I’m doing now. Vectornator, Fresco and Procreate.

I’m exited to see the new brush engine in Vectornator and the basic vector bezier tools in Adobe Fresco that will be released soon.

Any progress on this issue?

As you can see there is no real meaningful dialog here. Only "it will be solved!" from hopeful, dreaming fans etc. You will not get wiser here. Only older. Rage, rage against the dying of the light. Purchase something that works well for you. This waiting and talking to forum regulars can go on for years. And probably will.

Just like that ... I wonder why some "unhappy" people are still on this forum....why they just don't quit and go somewhere else.... if they really don't like and use Affinity products anymore...

hi @Dan C  @Gabe could you inform if is possible to have this issue fixed at the next update? hopefully it's not majority of people that is having this issue. but I guess the minority are struggling and getting very frustrated about it. which makes the software unusable to them, would be cool for all to have some update about when this would be a priority, since it's being a time that these people are struggling about it. Thanks in advance, I wish all the safety to the team in these pandemic time.

Unfortunately there has not yet been any develop update to this issue, my apologies.

I am aware that Artsketch (and many other users) are patiently awaiting for this bug to be fixed and I will be sure to update this thread whenever we have news.

I will, once again, 'bump' this with our development team - so that they're aware users are chasing a fix.

I hope you and the developer team understand how annoying it is to be forced to sketch in Fresco, Procreate, Sketches or SketchBook and then permanently import layers to Affinity Designer to continue with vectors.
