Support for layer brush history feature on iPad


Recommended Posts

So one of my favourite little additions to v2 is the tiny brush icon in the layers palette that contains a history of all brushes used on that layer. Unfortunately, it seems this feature is only supported on desktop, and while I do have a tablet for my desktop, I much prefer drawing on my iPad. Any chance I'm missing something, and if not, is there any chance that magic, tiny brush history feature will make it to the iPad in a coming release?

The Affinity Store description of Photo 2 does not list that function as "for desktop only". But I don't see it on iPad, either. Not sure whether the Store page is incorrect, or there's a bug.

Would be nice.

‘I do know that one of my new favorite things is a ‘hidden gem’ inclusion:

Left Swipe on a Layer - to reveal the Layer info

Can easily perform a quick see/select Layer Options/Layer Blends, Layer FX, etc., or whatever was incorporated and then proceed to whichever to select, not visit the Panel manually.

Is on all V2 iPad apps.

Hey Bryan Rieger,

Sadly this feature didn't make it into the iPad versions for release but last time I checked, it was being worked on so I would expect to see it at some point. We should, for the time being, make that clear on any marketing copy so I'll get that checked as well. Thanks!
