How To Fill With Pattern?


Recommended Posts

I'd like to know if it is possible to fill with a pattern in Affinity Photo for iPad? I know this can be done on the desktop version but I do not see the option for bitmap when I select the Fill tool on the iPad. I only see fill or erase options. I want to fill some text with a pattern. Can this be done on the ipad version and if so I'd appreciate specific instructions. :)

Thank you in advance.

This is what I see on the Context toolbar ‘Type’ dropdown list when I choose the Gradient Tool in Affinity Photo for iPad:

Thanks but I'm looking to fill it with a patten or bitmap using the Fill tool as can be done in the desktop version. I tried to use the gradient tool to apply a bitmap but it just cause Affinity to crash consistently :o

I just got the bitmap fill to work using the gradient tool...Thank you. 

But I'd like to know how to make a pattern from a selection in my image. How do I save it as a pattern that I can then apply to text? 

Thank you very much.

As far as I’m aware, in both the desktop and the iPad versions you have to export the selection and then browse to the saved image.
