  1. I Have Been Waiting Now For 2 Years for This Feature! I Came From Corel To DrawPlus in 2014, but had to go back to Corel after Affinity Designer came out. Corel is a magnificent drawing program for architectural scale technical drawing, but they just went to yearly subscription where you cannot buy the product at all - so I'm back again and sad to see that Affinity isn't interested in increasing their sales market to a niche group: People who vector-draw scale renderings! I draw artist conceptions for landscape sculpture and architectural features that have to be pretty precise to scale; plus I design a lot of logos, signs and marketing materials - so I prefer to stay in one program for it all. I really fell in love with the Serif products and dumped Corel when I came upon DrawPlus. For close to 6 years, DrawPlus and PagePlus right next to it gave me everything I wanted. I wish Affinity would put some time into putting the scale back into Designer. After a lot of searching on the internet for an option to Corel, I'm not finding anything, so back I go - at least for another year! I hope to be back here again.
  2. Thanks, I can understand that it is new software, but wondering how they could miss carrying over a feature from DrawPlus that serif had for years. In the meantime, Designer isn't useful for producing scale drawings or modeling like CorelDraw is, so it looks like I am going to need to buy the new version of Corel and keep going on with my work.
  3. Thanks for the comments, Jedidiah. I had been using the scale in SerifDraw Plus, so when Serif switched to Infinity, it was an automatic assumption that they would keep the same features they had and improve on others. It's funny, I liked DrawPlus a lot, because it was so much like Adobe Illustrator, while being a little more elementary. Anyway.... Hey Affinity: Where is our Scale/Tools Option?? Please and Thanks!
  4. Thanks, Mark. Good suggestion, but the problem is that I am drawing in US dimensions for architectural and plot drawings and being accurate on exact feet/inches is important. I am really good at it in Corel, and even Affinity predecessor, Serif DrawPlus, had the Scale in it's Tool Options - but they left it out of Affinity. This is so critical for me that I may have to go back to Corel.
  5. No architectural-ratio drawing scale in Designer? I'm new to Designer and have used Corel for years to draw a number of projects using scaling (Ex. 1/4 inch = 1 foot) to accomplish it in order to print it out on letter sized paper. Besides myself, but how does anyone use this application do any modeling for 3-D printing, sign making, plot drawings for land, etc, etc, - which are a snap to do in Corel? Maybe I need to go back to Corel?Am I missing where the feature is, or has Affinity really ignored an important market segment?
  6. No architectural-ratio drawing scale in Designer? I'm noticing that this conversation started back in 2015. I'm new to Designer and have used Corel for years to draw a number of projects using scaling (Ex. 1/4 inch = 1 foot) to accomplish it in order to print it out on letter sized paper. Besides myself, but how does anyone use this application do any modeling for 3-D printing, sign making, plot drawings for land, etc, etc, - which are a snap to do in Corel? Maybe I need to go back to Corel? Am I missing where the feature it, or has Affinity really ignored an important market segment for the past 4 years?
  7. I have searched both Help and Forums and cannot find the answer to the simple question of "How do I set the scale of the ruler for a drawing?" I am drawing a deck to scale on 8.5"x11" paper, so want to scale it at 1/8 inch = 1 foot. Can someone tell me where and how I can set this? Thanks
