Good job! My 1st impressions/feedback...

Recommended Posts

Over all this is a great first (for iPad at least) release. Well done!

I'm experiencing only one major issue so far, and that is selecting shapes. If you just have a few on your screen, it all works fine, but as soon as you have a few overlapping and many layers, Affinity has a really hard time deciding what shape you're trying to select, even if you're zoomed in fairly close and using a pencil OR finger. I'm not talking about shapes that are really close together either, and the pencil should be REALLY accurate at selecting IMHO. This is the only thing I've encountered so far that is VERY frustrating.

A much smaller issue is with using brushes and the apple pencil. Often the first contact with the screen produces a blob before the stroke. This makes some sense given that the first tap of a pencil is often not very light. Maybe consider somehow to not take in input for pressure at the very, very beginning of a stroke?

Might want to consider canvas rotation on by default too given this is a table version.

Thanks and keep up the good work!

I like some of the touch and drag options for sizing things. This should probably be taken further if it can be for some options.

For instance, it would be really nice if we could touch then drag on the duplicate option to create more duplicates. So as you drag, more are created. This could be really powerful for things like power transforms.

With a two finger touch and tapdrag on an object you can create a copy (duplicate). Not as powerful as your suggestion but , part way there.
