    Perspective tool

    Hello, everybody, there is a possibility already now in Affintiy Designer to Draw in Perspective with the help of the Tool Lazy Nezumi. Lazy Nezumi = LN allows to draw with Perspective Rulers in Affinity Designer and these feel and can be used just like as if they were built into Affinity Designer. Edit: As Alfred notice me below, i forget to write that LN only works on Windows. Sorry Mac Users. Apart from this LN works pretty well with Affinity Designer and with many other Graphics programs too. No matter if vector graphics or painting programs. You can try it out for yourself with the 15 Day Trial version of LN. More Details and an Example Picture can be found under this Link in the lower Post: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/85726-beyond-the-isometric-grid/&tab=comments&_fromLogin=1 Hope this helps, have a nice Day gottfried
  3. Hallo arial_bold I understand, but I see the Inkscape method rather as a Workaround if a graphics program has no Perspective Ruler. If I understand you correctly. Than you want perspective rulers in Affinity Designer. Lazy Nezumi allows exactly this perspective rulers and these feel and can be used just like as if they were built into Affinity Designer. LN works pretty well with Affinity Designer and with many other Graphics programs too. No matter if vector graphics or painting programs. You can try it out for yourself with the 15 day trial version of LN. Here an example that I paint in Affintiy Designer with LN's perspective Ruler. To use LN you need the following Steps: - Start LN. - Start your Graphicsprogram e.g Affinity Designer. - In LN go to Menu and select File > Hook Window - Now select the Affinity Designer Screen and put your Cursor over the Affinity Designer Screen, after a few Seconds LN will capture/hook the Affinity Designer Screen so all the Rulers of LN will now work with Affinity Designer. - Push the Startbutton in LN and you are ready to go. By press the Startbutton again you can also switch off LN for a while if you like to draw with no rulers. Here is a link to the website to the perspective ruler https://lazynezumi.com/perspective Hope this help, have a nice day gottfried

    Introduce Yourself

    Hello, everybody, My name is gottfried and i live in Germany. I have Affinity Designer running on Windows and on an iPad Pro too. Graphics and Computer Graphics has fascinated me for a long time. So I have seen many graphics programs come and go. I make graphics for fun, a few years also in digital printing as a Graphicsguy for a company, created there Vectorgraphic Symbols and Layouts for Safety Signs. Vector graphics interest me for a long time and this led to Affinity Designer. At Affinity Designer I especially like the possibilities of the Symbols and the Vectorbrushes remember me a little on CreatureHouse Expression Brushes. By the way, CreatureHouse Expression is still running on my computer ;-). Whish you all a nice day and may your ideas spread. gottfried grohmann
  5. Hi arial_bold There is one way that i know, where you can use Perspektive Rulers, like you want, in both Affinity Designer and Photo. This is possible with the help of Tool named Lazy Nezumi. A Tool once written for Photoshop. But you can use it without any Problems also in Vectorprograms like Affinity Designer. Search for your self and look at there Webseite. Hope this helps a bit. Have a nice day. 2ddpainter
  6. Hello Maybe some of you know Lazy Nezumi already. Lazy Nezumi Pro = LN is a Tool that allows you to paint with Rulers in Graphicsprograms that don't have this Rulers. Originally, I believe, it was used as an Tool for Photoshop. But you can use it with many other Graphicsprograms. LN only run under Windows, unfortunately there is no Mac version. Normally People are using LN in Bitmap/Paintprograms like Affinity Photo, to name one. But !!! You can use it in Vectorgraphicsprograms e.g Affinity Designer too. This may open possibilities you may not have thought of bevor and LN works great with Vectorprograms. As you may know Affinity Designer has some Rulers or you also can copy and move your lines like one. But i think with LN you can often paint your Lines more directly without the need to refit, rotate or move them later. So, try it for your self ;-) LN has the following rulers, to name a few: Ellipse Quadratic Bezier Cubic Bezier Perspective Ellipse Radial Lines Parallel Lines Connected Lines Vanishing Lines Linear Perspective Isometric Perspective Fisheye Perspective Some of these rulers can also be combined with the L-Function of LN, this results in some unusual possibilities. Here is a Link to the LN Webseite that will show the Rulers in a Video. https://lazynezumi.com/rulers There is also a 15 Day Trial Version. To use LN you need the following Steps: - Start LN. - Start your Graphicsprogram e.g Affinity Designer. - In LN go to Menu and select File > Hook Window - Now select the Affinity Designer Screen and put your Cursor over the Affinity Designer Screen, after a few Seconds LN will capture/hook the Affinity Designer Screen so all the Rulers of LN will now work with Affinity Designer. - Push the Startbutton in LN and you are ready to go. By press the Startbutton again you can also switch off LN for a while if you like to draw with no rulers. I find LN from case to case quite practical at times and it can be used in many differend Graphicsprograms. I hope you find this Tip useful for you paintings. Wish you a nice day. 2ddpainter
