Is the bug that causes the app to crash and deletes the document gone?

Can we have more information about how auto save works?

Creative,

 

Yes, we believe that bug is fixed :)

 

It *was* autosaving, but unless you had been back to the gallery screen at least once, your document was never being added to the gallery.

 

Autosave happens in the background and is "abortable" - so you don't get long pauses as you work. It should be stable now and do what you expect - but if for any reason you want to force an autosave, just go back to the gallery screen then open your document again.

 

Hope this helps,

 

Andy.

You still have a chromatic aberration button that does not work. Hope that something will be done soon. The same feature in the PC edition is just as bad

Would be great if you can include this changelog on future release on the Apple Store, right now it just says "Stability and bug fixes". Not everyone will look on the forums to check if the RAW issue has been fixed for example.

It's quite a list of enhancements. In iTunes it says "Stability and bug fixes". Looks like something got lost in translation.

Just updated the app and successfully imported raw files from Photos. I also was able to do a Panorama and HDR from my iPad files. Nice work! Now I have to actually learn the app to see what I can do with a 100% mobile workflow.

Hi Jane Siet,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Select the layer you want to rename then tap the ellipsis icon (the three dots icon) in the Layers Studio, then tap again over the name of the layer (right below the header that says "< Layer options" on top). The keyboard will pop up allowing you to rename the layer.

Hello everyone,

I'm using affinity 1.6.2 for iPad Pro 10.5". I edited a raw file saved as jpeg and wanted to share it by email (gmail) within affinity as shown in tutorials. This feature it isn't working for me. Please advise.

Thank you.

Hello,

First of all, I would like to thank the Affinity Photo team for the work it has done on the ios ipad pro version.
 
However, I found that you have the possibility to improve 2 small defects for the conford of use for the designers in digital painting:
 
The cone at the bottom of the app to cancel: it would be more comfortable to cancel by tapping with two fingers on the screen!
 
The second defect is that it is not possible to rotate the worktop with three fingers for example as in Procreate.
 
I think its two suggestions implemented in the software would be appreciable by many users.
 
Thank you for reading me.  ;)

Bonjour,
Je tiens d'abord à remercier l'équipe d'Affinity Photo pour le travail qu'il ont fait en ce qui concerne la version ios ipad pro.
 
Cependant, j'ai constaté que vous avez la possibilité d'améliorer 2 petits défauts pour le conford d'utilisation pour les dessinateurs en digital painting :
 
Le cône en bas de l'app pour annuler : il serait plus confortable d'annuler en tappotant avec deux doigts sur l'écran !
 
Le second défaut est qu'il n'est pas possible de faire tourner le plan de travail avec trois doigts par exemple comme dans Procréate.
 
Je pense que ses deux suggestions implantées dans le logiciel seraient appréciables par beaucoup d'utilisateurs.
 
Merci de me lire.
