Affinity Designer for iPad - 1.8.6

Recommended Posts

We are pleased to announce an update for the iPad release of Affinity Designer, version 1.8.6

Changes in this build

The changes in Affinity Designer for iPad 1.8.6 (over the last release  Affinity Designer for iPad 1.8.4) are as follows:

Fixes & Improvements:

  • Colour sliders dialog relocates when you make changes on iOS 14.
  • Adding a font into the Apps will cause iOS 14 to crash.
  • Support for iOS 14 Scribble.
  • Localisation improvements.

 Earlier changes in 1.8 since 1.7 (including the new 1.8 features & improvements) are listed in some detail in the 1.8.0 update announcements


UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (free for existing customers)

The software version can be seen on the corner of preferences screen.

Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them.

If the automatic update does not happen for you, go to the iPad Store app and go to Updates. Once you’re there, tap near the top of the screen where it states 'Updates' and then hold, pull down and then release. This should manually refresh the updates page. However, don’t panic if the updates are not available for you yet—Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world and this can take up to 24 hours.
