Affinity Designer iPad Color Palette Import?

Recommended Posts

Hi MEB, I want you to go try to add a 135 color palette to Afinity Designer for iPad and let me know if you find any ux improvements along the way. If you need some guidance I’d be happy to make a recording of me attempting the same thing.

The temporary solution is to create a file with document palette on desktop, save the file and open it on iPad. 


W10, Dell G5, i7, 16GB, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2600, Wacom Intuos Pro M + iPad Pro 2018.

I just tried every workaround for adding my palette to Designer on iPad to no avail.

I added the palette as a document palette on the PC, then opened the file on the iPad. The palette exists, but can’t be added as an Application palette. 

Also, I started a custom Application palette but it didn’t sync when I closed the software. I can’t believe how terrible palette support is. A great shame!

Yea, why isn't this added in the 1.8 update? We can import everything from brushes to styles but a simple palette swatch is impossible? I really hope they will add this ASAP because its a pretty basic feature that many people are asking for!

Hi kickikack12,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
No, currently this is not available on the iPad version. Hopefully this will be added in a future update (no eta).

Do you have direct content with anyone at the development team? Because with 2,238 views on this subject shows its on demand but maybe there is a good reason why they havnt added it yet?

Solution is to:

  1. Create a template document
  2. Use the Mac to import a palette into the template document
  3. Use the iPad to create a new document based on the template.

Placing the template in iCloud or some other network shared storage would help as well.

I know you can do it like this but i dont own Affinity for my PC.  Isn't it the point of buying affinity for ipad that everything works without doing work on a PC..... I just find it weird that it takes so long for this to be added while it should be there from the start.

Came here looking for the same thing. Just wanted to add my vote that it is very much needed. Thanks for the awesome app! Was waiting a long time to get it on the iPad.
