  1. I'm confused because some users claim that nesting symbols is possible with Affinity Designer while others claim that there are many bugs associated with nesting symbols. I also have had many problems with nesting symbols not syncing with each other because the syncing breaks for some reason. Sometimes, some of the symbols disappear within the nested symbol.
  2. @Gabe Why is it, "not a good practice to have symbols within symbols?" Is nesting symbols possible with Affinity Designer on Windows desktop? I'm confused because some users claim that nesting symbols is possible with Affinity Designer while others claim that there are many bugs associated with nesting symbols.

  3. I'm also having problems with aligning lines of text in a bulleted list and it's very frustrating. This problem seems to only happen with 2 lines of text. I found one solution/fix by: Copy and paste large blocks (https://www.lipsum.com/) of text to simulate the perfectly aligned bulleted list from this AD tutorial video: https://affinity.serif.com/en-us/tutorials/publisher/desktop/video/337313778/ Copy and paste the text you need in the 3rd line of a block of text. Make sure that the lines of text stay aligned after pasting. Delete the original text that you don't need. I hope this helps other people who are struggling with this alignment problem.
  4. Is there a solution for this problem in Affinity Designer? I can't find it.
  5. Also, I want to add that I feel positive and encouraging when I can support another person's post on a forum by giving them a 'like' reaction. Other people probably feel appreciated when their post is given a 'like' reaction and supported. A positive community culture is important to foster for long term development goals.
  6. @PixelPest That's such a cute and simple heart! ♥I never even thought about creating a heart that way.
  7. I'm a newbie to the AD forum and am enjoying the positive and helpful community. I was wondering why I get this message when trying to like someone's post on a forum, "Sorry, you cannot add any more reactions today."? I think it's important for the community, but most importantly the AD developers to know whose opinions people support the most... kind of like a democratic process to understand what the majority of users want. Customer feedback is very valuable because it helps developers to know what features to change and improve upon. Vectornator, another vector software program, has an interesting feedback system for customers that the AD developers might want to look at. https://feedback.vectornator.io/ Thanks for your help.
  8. Another solution, for the heart shape, is to snap each node handle to a grid intersection to make it precisely symmetrical on both sides. This is how I got the node handles to snap to a grid intersection: 1. Turn on Snapping, preset: Object Creation. 2. Turn on 'Snap to grid' in the preset snapping menu. 3. Turn on 'Align handle positions using snapping options' in the context icon toolbar at the top. 4. Move anchor handle point to a grid intersection and it snaps to it.
  9. It looks like this feature has already been implemented. THANK YOU! This helps me with symmetrical object creation and node joining. After playing around I finally discovered how to do it because it wasn't clear and simple. This is how I got the node handles to snap to a grid intersection: 1. Turn on Snapping, preset: Object Creation. 2. Turn on 'Snap to grid' in the preset snapping menu. 3. Turn on 'Align handle positions using snapping options' in the context icon toolbar at the top. 4. Move anchor handle point to a grid intersection and it snaps to it.
  10. @telemax Thank you for the advice. It's sometimes difficult for me to find the right balance between the quality and size of the video file. Practice will help me though.
  11. @telemax How did you record your screen? Your video looks so professional.
  12. Thank you all for your help! I have tried the default heart shape, but I want to make my own custom heart shape. Also, AD seems to have issues when joining nodes with anchor handles, but it works great with corner nodes without anchor handles. The 'add geometry' option is the closest solution that I tried, but I'm a perfectionist and it bothers me when there are double nodes instead of just one node. I think for now I will merge all of my symmetrical vector drawings in another vector program and then import/paste them into AD. Have a good day and have fun vectoring.
  13. Thanks for your help, but I would still like a permanent reset selection box because otherwise I'll keep having to remember to reset the box every time I edit an object. If the reset selection box was permanent then I wouldn't have to keep on manually cycling the selection box to 'regular bounds' every time I want to edit an object.
  14. Could someone please show me how to create a simple, symmetrical, vector heart shape in Affinity Designer? I just want to be able to join nodes like in Adobe Illustrator and Inkscape, so easy and simple. I've been trying to create a symmetrical heart shape with two halves, but whenever I use the node snap tool it messes up one node handle at the bottom of the heart. One node handle ends up being forced into a corner node and the heart shape looses it's symmetry. When I try other ways of joining the paths then I get two nodes instead of just one node. Thanks you for your help.
