I have like 30Gb of files in the project folders in Affinity Photo for IPad

How can I export the entire folder to iCloud so I could delete all the project folder t9 save space for my new projects?

 

thanks

Hi Allan.Lim

Welcome to the forum,

You would need to export each open project to iCloud, If you open a project and go to Document > Export you can then select iCloud.

There are two options given here which don’t work for me.

Documents > export doesn’t give me an option to save to cloud.

The menu icon only has an item to save not ‘save to cloud’

How do I move my projects to the cloud so I can edit on the Mac?

 

ive a suspicion that this problem might just be with a beta release. I downloaded the version from the App Store and all it ok

In General Preferences set Save Location to cloud instead of iPad. When you 'Save' the file will be saved to Cloud instead of local.

Thanks for that. I think the problem was with a beta release. The only way I could find to install the version released via the App Store was by stopping testing using TestFlight so now I’m not sure how to give feedback. Anyway I’ve mamaged to do what I wanted to do and got them all up on the cloud.

So there's no way to set this to save to Dropbox, correct?

Correct, perhaps in a future version of both apps as both would need changes to make that work reliably I feel. 

 

Edit: After playing with the new pages app that came out yesterday which now works well with Dropbox I’ve changed my mind, it should be possible in AP in a new version as per how the Apple apps work now.
