Affinity Designer for iPad - Rulers


Recommended Posts

Love this app on the iPad! Great job! 

I have spent some time with this app today...all day :) and there is something I would love to see added to the app. Rulers. Rulers are always a crucial part of my workflow and I know it is for other designers out there. I really like this app and still digging into the ins and out of it.

Thanks for finally creating a very powerful vector app for the iPad thanks works amazingly.

It’s odd because rulers are mentioned (just once) in the documentation. But if there’s a way to actually access the rulers, it’s too subtle for me!

I think a lot of the help info was copied over from Desktop version. There are a few other 'anomalies' that you will come across. Rulers will hopefully make it to the next release, along with import palettes etc.

so...I’ve been all over AD/iOS like ants on ice cream and I can’t find a whisper of rulers and guides...

Rulers are not yet available. Plenty of info on Guides in built in Helpfile.

bumping this thread to say that I just bought the software this week and would love rulers. I am using the software to layout templates for leatherworking components, and accurate measurability for alignment is important. (i also noticed millimeters is not an option for sizing units, but that's another request)

I have to agree. Rulers are very important for a program that does design. I have found that I can use Designer on the go when I am working with clients and having rulers is extremely important. The on the go is new, but I found it works pretty well.

when rulers arrive, might the user be able to set where the zero point is..in the case where you need the origin to be other than the top left corner of the document or art board?

This is possible in the desktop versions, so I would hope they would carry this over.

Wasn't the whole point of these apps that they were 100% the same functionality between platforms? I swear I just read this very claim on the Affinity pages marketing these products...
