So, I fell in love with Affinity after about an hour of playing with it. I bought it and started bringing my favorite assets over from Photoshop and Illustrator, including some styles I have been usin

You're welcome. It wasn't difficult at all. 1. Create a photoshop document, and add shapes to it. (Must be an actual shape to work properly in my experience.) 2. Assign styles to the various shapes.

You're welcome!   I should probably explain that the name isn't an arrogant, self-aggrandizing thing. My company's name is DreamScape Visionery, hence Dream Styles.

Hi Jack Meyers,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Yes, if you have an app able to unzip them. Files app (which comes with iOS) can't do it but FileBrowser for example is able to decompress the files to a new folder (inside a cloud service like Dropbox for example etc) so you can then import the unzipped file(s) from Affinity Photo/Designer. To import the unzipped files (styles), go to the Layer FX Studio, tap the Styles button on the bottom of the panel then tap the menu icon on the header (on top) and select Import Styles....

Thank you for sharing.

I have FileBrowser, and downloaded one of the files.  As far as I know, I have unzipped to Google Drive, into a Dream Organics folder.  In AD I chose Import Style, and navigate to the folder, though it is ghosted and nothing happens when I try to select it.

I’m in unfamiliar territory here; not completely sure that I’ve unzipped it, but when I OPEN the file I see a lot of content.

I know you can’t see what I’m seeing, but does anyone have a clue ?  Thanks much

Reading the advice in page 4 of this thread....  I opened a Dropbox account, used FileBrowser to unzip, which created a file with the AFSTYLES suffix (insofar as I know the unzip worked).  I then copied the AFSTYLES file to my new Dropbox account folder.  I returned to AD, to IMPORT the styles from Dropbox.  When I attempt this using DROPBOX, it looks the same as when I used G Drive (the AFSTYLES is ghosted and not selectable).  The AFSTYLES file is 68 MB so I know there’s something there.  Any clues ?  From anyone ?

If I go the MAC route to UNZIP, and IMPORT into AD, - will the styles be present in the iPad version of AD ?

Thanks much !!!

I used my MAC to IMPORT the styles; worked like a charm.  But (isn’t there always one...), I’d really like to use my iPad for this as my iPad is so much more responsive than my MAC (on the spinning beach ball too much).

I answered my question in my prior post, the styles are now in the MAC version of AD, but not in the iPad (I didn’t really believe that magic would work).

If anyone has some suggestions for using the iPad to import styles (other than those on page 4) I’d like to hear it.

Thanks anyway.

Update, after I unpacked the styles on my MAC I stored them in iCloud, and went back to the iPad to see if I could import them, as I could visually see the files in their unzipped format.  I tried the import, but the styles are still ghosted and do not appear retrievable via import.

This leads me to believe that the procedure, as I understand the import function, is not do-able on the iPad.  A bug ?

If anyone knows different I’d sure like to hear about it.  

My intent is to use the iPad, and not the MAC for most of my art creation, though I do find the MAC version of AD somehow more robust

I can't seem to edit the original post anymore, but I wanted to say you can find these exclusively at https://affinity.graphics now. The link to my company site will no longer work as of today.
