Move tool modifiers available in Affinity Photo for iPad?

Recommended Posts

The desktop version of Affinity Photo has a series of helpful Move tool modifiers available in the toolbar. Which of these are also available in the iPad version either as a button, a menu option, or as a multi-touch modifier?

  • Enable Transform Origin (I'm particularly interested in this one)
  • Hide Selection while Dragging
  • Show Alignment Handles
  • Transform Objects Separately
  • Cycle Selection Box

According to our QA team it appears these have been accidentally omitted from the latest version of AP iOS  and so I'm logging this as a big with our development team now. I'll respond here in due course with any pertinent information!

@Dan C Hi, is there any update on this? It seems I cannot multi select easily without this context menu, and I would also like to be able to use the rotate center tool. The lack of this panel is strange to me, since Photo on Mac has it. I like using the rest of the app though!
