    G13RL got a reaction from Callum in Outer Dotted Contour   
    You may also duplicate the design, select the one below, press "Add" and use "Contour Tool" to create the outer dots.

    G13RL got a reaction from NotMyFault in Round Cap for Donut   
    You can draw the "Donut", set "Hole Radius" to 100%. Choose values for "Start Angle" and "End Angle".
    Set the line thickness and set "Join" to "Round Join".
    The donut remains editable.

    G13RL reacted to JDW in How to cut a part out of a vertical line?   
    This is the unfortunate tragedy in not having a dedicated Scissors tool like Illustrator.  It's not just the conflict with Illustrator muscle memory. Productivity drops tremendously.  You see, in Illustrator, I can sketch a circle, then type C to select Scissors, then click on two points on the circle to cut it.  No "Convert to Curves" required.  It's fast and just works.  That is what we all need in Affinity Designer, if we are truly honest.  Bring on the Scissors tool!

    I totally agree this is annoying and should be fixed. How annoying you find this may depend on the particular use case and how often you encounter it. After years of reporting bugs in design programs to software companies, seeing some getting fixed and others not, I just don't care about reporting any more. I'd rather lose 200 x 0,5 seconds a day encountering a minor bug, than writing, documenting and following up bug reports for hours, when there is not even a guarantee to get it fixed. Hope this helps you see one possible explanation why this is not more widely mentioned.

    G13RL got a reaction from firstdefence in How to draw arched concentric lines...   
    You can try to use a spiral to which you have applied pressure.
    As AD does not have a spiral tool, I created one with Xara, exported as an svg. I applied the pressure in AD.
    I tilted the spiral slightly to try to give the illusion of concentric circles.

    "You can also, after applying the brush in Designer, go back to Publisher, "Convert to Text Frame", and type the text."
    True, but as soon as one does that, you loose the option of changing the brush if I want another style of brush - Or am I missing something?

    Thanks Alfred and G13RL both worked very well!
    Yes more of a general solution to a problem.. But now.. why this? I cannot get to understand why if reversing or flipping it works? Some mathematical explanation that will send me bog eyed? 🤯

    G13RL reacted to Alfred in subtracted shape exported to svg   
    If you’re subtracting a smaller circle from a bigger one to make a donut shape, try converting the smaller circle to curves and reversing it (Node Tool > Reverse) before performing the subtraction. In this particular case I would just use the Donut Shape Tool, but I’m guessing that you’re looking for a more general solution to the problem.
    Edit: ‘Horizontal Flip’ as suggested by @G13RL is better than ‘Reverse’ because you don’t have to convert to curves first.

    Hi @IsabelAracama,
    Try rotate the outer shape by -90° and "Horizontal Flip" the inner shape before subtracting.

    G13RL reacted to walt.farrell in Installing brushes ‘over’ existing categories: question about automatic renaming of categories   
    Select a brush category in the Brushes panel.
    Click the hamburger icon. If it's a category that came with the application, or that you installed, you'll have a "Delete Category" option. If it was installed via My Account that option will be "Uninstall Pack".

    Welcome to the Affinity forums @Peter Gregory!
    Assuming you are using APublisher this can be done easily. Write your left text, then insert a "Right Indent Tab" (Shift + Tab) and write your right text.
    EDIT: Just tested this in ADesigner / APhoto. Same keyboard shortcut although not appearing in the menu.
