Cannot place PDF

Recommended Posts



When I want to place a PDF either from the cloud (I use both iCloud and Dropbox), or from photos, nothing gets placed into the file.

If I open the PDF as a new document, it works.


(iPad Pro 10.5, iOS 10.3.3, App Store version of Affinity Photo)





MBP 15" + iPad Pro 10,5"

macOS High Sierra 10.14 | iOS 13 | latest Affinity Photo & Designer & Publisher (and Betas)

Hey furtonb,


It seems to be working fine for me. I dropped a PDF from Dropbox into my document and it took a few seconds but it did appear. I've tested this on the App Store version and beta. Have you tried different PDF's? I'd quite like to try your example if you could send it to me.
