Hello,

 

I just stumbled upon affinity for iPad (already knowing about the desktop version) looking for a powerful alternative to photoshop on my iPad Pro. I really like the way it is heading but I would like to make a few suggestions that could improve the workflow a lot for all sorts of applications.

 

First of all I really need the possibility to organise my Brushes. The categories are fine but as long as I can’t move brushes from one into another it’s basically useless since I can’t really customise the panel.

 

The next thing I am suggesting is a fast Color picker. The two ways to do it now is either over the Color picker tool, or tapping the color option while using the brush and then picking a Color from there. Both ways interrupt my workflow and it’s just plain annoying.

 

The last idea I have would be an option to easily rotate your brush while painting. I imagine adding another quick access to the brush settings could do the trick. Sometimes it’s just easier to rotate the brush instead of the canvas.

this would imply though, that the brush preview that you see while changing test tings should actually show a preview of the selected brush. Now it seems like it always just show a circle to represent the size.

 

Besides that I’m really looking forward in experimenting further around and maybe even implement the app into my daily workflow as automotive designer in the future.

With Apple Pencil press and hold and colour selector will appear under point of contact on screen.

Unfortunately no, not size, just location. Handy for screen video and not much else.

Indeed, I really miss the simple alt + click that one gets in PS and many programs... tons faster (I have usually set alt in one of the two pen side buttons (different config auto triggered if am inking of digital painting, also))
