Option to Hide/View The Context Toolbar

Recommended Posts

I am a digital comic illustrator and I’ve been wanting to switch to AP. I’ve owned the desktop Affinity Suite for a few years now, but have recently been playing around in the IOS version of AP. I’ve noticed that the brush engine has really improved, which I’m very happy to see! My only set backs with switching from Procreate to AP is the frequent crashing problems and the fact that the Context Toolbar can’t be hidden. This may not be as much of an issue for those editing and manipulating  photos, but it really gets in the way when painting. I’m hitting it with my palm constantly. I’d like to request a hide/view option. I hope to be able to use AP on desktop and IPad together solely for my illustrations and comic art. I also hope to help other artists see how powerful this program can be!

I’d also love to see a smoothing/streamline option for the paint brush tools. The rope and window stabilizers feel pretty clunky when inking and painting, though they definitely are helpful for some operations.

Yup, its in my suggestions too. Just like adjustments and filters and fx context toolbar, it should be an option for each context toolbar to hide it without hiding everything.

I agree! I feel that this would greatly aid in the overall workflow. It’s unusable for me, without these options.
