Issue with dock swipe up within Affinity on iPad Pro


Recommended Posts

Hello, 

I’ve been having a issue within Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo, when working on a project and I need to swipe up from the button to activate the dock a single swipe will not open it and I normaly have to swipe 2 or more times. Is there anyway to fix this so I can do a single swipe up like any other app?

This is with Affinity on the late 2018 iPad Pro 12.9 modle (the one without the home button)

There are times where. I can single swipe up and it seems to happen depending on the colour of the dock bar indercator, white means I can swipe up with a single swipe and sometimes the bar will go a gray meaning I have to swipe a couple of times.

Anyone else having this issue?

 

Thank yo for your time, and I hope you have a great day.

Andrew

I think this is intentional, Procreate does exactly the same thing.

One swipe up activates the bar (you can see it change a bit) then the second swipe allows it to be used. I actually hate this function as well, especially in procreate. Every time i swipe up to switch apps in ProC, i get a long drawn line up the screen that i have to undo, it's mindbendlingly annoying.

I don't notice it in AfDesigner since vector tools don't act like pro-create tools (ie. no brush swipes to undo), but most of us swipe up with purpose, the double swipe is kind of annoying.

Upon further research, looks like i was right. #tootmyownhorn 

Looks like ProCreate is being hard headed about it. They should listen to their users over following guidelines which are obviously not well implemented.

Yeah its really annoying when trying to use "slide over" to help with placing and saving from Affinity to the files app for example. I understand the reason why they did it, so you don't close the app while working on it but it results in making it hard to multitask on the project, they would maybe add a toggle for this? But it is still kinda annoying.!!!!
