Affinity Ipad app settings and export bug

Recommended Posts

Hello guys,

I’m wondering if anyone has found a way around this bug, it makes file exports and settings a nightmare. It happens every time I open any of the iPad apps. I’ve tried deleting and redownloading more than a couple times now.

Looks like this known bug: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/search/&tags=AFD-6578

Workaround, if it's the same as your case, is don't use the Bluetooth Mouse, if I've read it correctly.

Hi @Yasha welcome to the forums,

I've bumped the existing issue with your report, you should be able to keep your Bluetooth mouse connected but just finger tap on the export options to prevent the issue (try to avoid dragging your finger across the different export buttons as this can also trigger it).

The OP in the thread I originally logged the issue in also mentioned that by turning off 'Reduce Motion' in the iPad accessibility settings this may also prevent the issue from occurring when selecting the export options with a Bluetooth mouse.
