These are SO helpful! Thank you team! 

One suggestion - I appreciate that they were shot in 4k - but would it be possible to set them to default play in 1080p  (and then allow users to select a higher resolution if they want it)? If I just play them as they come on either my Mac or iPad - I run into a lot of buffering (even with a 50meg internet connection).

Most of your tutorials are available on Vimeo, and most of those are downloadable, but I can not find these anywhere and can not download them from the forum.

It helps to download the tutorials so we can view and review them when there is no Internet (travelling) or the internet is too slow to be useable.

I like to view the tutorials separately on a laptop/tablet so I can work the examples on the iPad as I stop and restart the video.

Could you please, please, please make these available with links?

Those I have already viewed have been excellent and extremely well thought out. Good job! Perhaps you could pair them up with pdfs as well so we can consult the steps to take to achieve set tasks. 

Thanks, having good instructions is one reason why I choose Affinity products over the competition. Nothing is entirely "intuitive" and getting the most out of the App is what makes it valuable.

Am I missing something Alfred?

That's just the link to the Overview Video which I already have.

I'm after the links to the 62 tutorials above.

Check Dave Vector's post (the table with the links) on the thread @Alfred linked to.

The link in my previous post takes me straight to Dave’s table in that thread. I wonder whether Peter is seeing something different! :/

This is what I chased down:

"Here it is: 1 https://vimeo.com/272723714/79409f3002"

"Affinity Designer for iPad - Offline Video Tutorials" did not show as a link on my screen, just a black text headline.

I have clicked on that now and am DLing the videos, thank you very much.

I am looking forward to giving myself some down time and devoting most of tomorrow to try and absorb them. :)

is it possible to select multiple nodes?

There’s at least 2 ways, firstly you can stretch out a rectangular selection box to select the nodes you want or you can use the multi touch aspects of the iPad to select individual nodes and add to your selection by placing a single finger modifier on the screen whilst selecting the other nodes.


Affinity Photo 1.6.7 and Designer 1.6.1 on MAC Mojave 10.4 Beta, Affinity Photo 1.6.9 and Designer 1.6.3 on iPad Pro 9.7" IOS 12.1 beta 5, Affinity Photo 1.6.4 on Windows 10
