Vector draw with Affinity Designer on iPad

Recommended Posts

Quick draw on iPad with Affinity Designer.

I discovered somethings need to be improved on Affinity Designer for vector painting.

  1. Visible stroke of pencil
  2. Quick way to close the path
  3. Eraser for vector shape
  4. Pick up color for brush tool on the context menu
  5. Quick fix scale and rotation of canvas to screen
  6. How to draw inside a group?
  7. Quick horizontal flip for checking composition
  8. How to choose a vector brush?

Hi, leminhthahn,

Good to see your 1st AD drawing.


1 The pencil tool line must have a stroke width greater than zero.

2 Use the node tool, and click close path.

3 There is no vector eraser at this time, only manually breaking the vector at node points, dividing the curves, and discarding the unwanted portions.

4 Use the eye dropper tool, available from either tool bar or within the color studio.

5 Use the navigator studio

6 Edit menu, select insert inside

7 Objects/ groups, etc. can be flipped from within the transform studio.

8 Open the brush studio, and move thru the categories till you find the one you want.

If you have other problems, try posting to the questions section of the forum.

Thanks gdenby.
Your comment help me a lot although some points I want to do it in quicker way indeed.

For example, Quick fix scale and rotation of canvas to screen with gesture on screen instead of the Navigation Studio.
