How come Pixelmator Photo doesn't use the edit function in iOS and iPadOS photos and uses the Share feature?

Confusing and counterintuitive because there is no indication that the image has been edited ("Done" in Applespeak. This makes it harder to go back to Photos once an edit is complete. We have to exit the Pixelamtor app and the reopen Photos to check edits.

Clunky.

Thanks.

This is due to memory limitations. The Photos extensions have a limit on the amount of memory they can use and our Repair tool alone actually exceeds that. Of course, we'd absolutely love to create a full-featured editing extension as we've done with Pixelmator Pro on the Mac but for now, the memory thing is the main stumbling block...
