Affinity Photo iPad Air 2 User Guide & Pen Support

Recommended Posts

1) Where is the user guide PDF?


2) Try to select a line of text however I try either the 1st or last character is not selected by finger or pen.


3) I have a Intuos Creative Stylus 2 pen it seems to work but not sure how to check out the pressure sensitivity for line width (I need a user guide). Is this pen supported or has it been tested by someone who knows how to use the app? Just purchased location Australia iPad Air 2 64Gb pen works OK on other graphic apps no crashes so far Thanks.


As you may guess i am frustrated by lack of user guide for instance when I select a brush I can see how to select the width of a stroke but can not find how to select pressure to vary the width.


I have other apps on my iPad Air 2 that respond OK to pressure so i have no idea if my Wacom Pen is compatible with this app. If i use my finger how do I vary the width by pressure? etc.


I am using mobile broadband and to watch all the tutorials is very expensive even the app cost me $12 to download

Hi Echoshack, 


  1.  We don't offer a PDF version of any of our apps help files i'm afraid but the help files can be found by clicking the button in my screenshot
  2. Selecting the Text Tool then clicking your text will allow you to edit it :)
  3. Please could you try clicking the Force Pressure button towards the bottom of the app when you have the Brush Tool selected (see second screenshot)







Please tag me using @ in your reply so I can be sure to respond ASAP.

Thanks for your reply. I found the ? help after playing with the app, pity its not in the edit window. Help is very comprehensive but how can I flip between editing and seeing the help or is there a way of using split screen. I need 2 iPads to read help on one and action edits on other.If i can not do this then it need looking at for future release.


I have now purchased a new 10.5 iPad pro and Apple Pen which works OK but the Wacom pen will not sync Bluetooth on the new iPad looks like Apple may be blocking. I had tried the Pressure icon on the iPad Air 2 but width stays same it works on other apps for pressure. Not an issue now I have a new 10.5 ipad pro.


I have installed the 2 updates so far.
