Hi and welcome to the forum.

Can you please check if you have snapping enabled? If yes, disable it.

If the issue persists, could you please make a screen recording and upload it ?

I think it was something as simple as drawing out the arrow first then editing it afterwards

Yes, all of the Shape Tools exhibit this annoying behaviour in the iPad apps. Unlike the desktop apps, you can’t set the parameters before you draw the shape.

The work around is to create your custom shape then add it to an asset panel for quick reuse later. 

Affinity Suite costs less than a single night on the toon, few beers and curry, just let that sink in.

Strange, works for me 🎄🎄🎄 @DM1  @Alfred @NotMyFault 

See attached Assets panel based upon the desktop presets not available on iPad without an asset panel.

Depends on colors of assets and UI theme (dark / light)

Affinity does not use contrasting background colors (to UI grey level), so in many cases assets become effectively invisible.

Did you ever notice (on Desktop) that the mouse cursor is always visible, no matter what colors are behind it? It automatically adds a black or white border to ensure it is visible. Affinity forgot to implement such function for asset libraries.

They are badly designed assets I agree, that’s why I shaded mine above to go in the asset panel as we always adjust the colour afterwards in the majority of cases anyway.

I tried this approach. Means having to hide a layer though. At least you can see names🙂 Changing colour is problematic as these are png images with transparent backgrounds. Maybe there is a better way to do this?
