  1. Well, I'm discussing the exact same drawing situation here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/11291-how-to-combine-objects-or-connect-separated-lines-on-ad/. This is more a workaround than a real world way to draw. This slows down object creation a lot. The solution I could see on the other topic is more of a workaround than a real world way to draw. This slows down object creation a lot. Bro. It's my personal opinion, but together with the actual "raw snapping options" this should be addressed ASAP. Graphic designers or people who do a bit more technical illustrations are significantly tied when drawing in AD right now.
  2. Well, I'm very worried now :( , because the other forum member had the same feeling as me when faced with the same basic drawing situation. <_< This thing I'm trying to do is too basic, standard and simple and now I'm wondering why can't be done in a straighforward way, but only in a "quick fix" way. Why not allow the pen tool to connect one object point to another? Maybe when AD was in development, illustrators who helped with the vector drawing concepts had a very particular way of drawing or designing. Maybe they were more into free hand illustration than into graphic design. <_< I still can't believe in it. :( The solution I could see on the other topic is more of a workaround than a real world way to draw.

  3. Thanks for the tip, Allan. Something is still not going in the way I expect. Please see this video where I want to connect the two left nodes: https://youtu.be/1niBr07WAlc
  4. Hi. This is a question that is so basic that I'm almost ashamed to ask! In Affinity Designer, how can I connect two separated lines or two distinct objects? In AI, you can do it in different ways, like using the "join" command or by connecting the end point of an object to the end point of one another. This video shows what I want to do: https://youtu.be/ACI04PgeFoY Thanks

    +1 To all 3 requests. I believe that only "Another thing that does not concern the guides: show and/or move the center / center of rotation of shapes" was considered.

    Snapping too buggy and Unrealiable

    Hi MEB and BEN. I hope to see this improvement in AD Snapping ASAP! Maybe already in AD version 1.2.2 ? ;) Thanks

    Snapping too buggy and Unrealiable

    Hi, Lee D and Ben. Thanks for quick reply. I've unchecked "Force Pixal Alignment" and the issue is still there. I believe it's really best to show what I'm saying. I made a video (youtube - not listed) to show my struggles with AD Snapping. The direct link is: https://youtu.be/Nu8MHIdxa_o But after you explanation, I believe that what I'm trying to do is not buggy, but seems to be a limitation or a choice of AD team. In Fact, I simply can't do my normal work in the way it is now. Can you please share the link where you are explaining everything about AD Snapping concept?

    Snapping too buggy and Unrealiable

    I've just downloaded AD beta version 1.2.1.25787, and confirmed that it suffers from the same bugs.
  10. Hello. I'm using Affinity Designer version 1.2.1 After spending some time playing with AD Trial (minutes in fact), like most people I was blown away by many of it's strengths, and I've quickly purchased AD. Without wasting time, I decided to use it to do a real job. But... I quickly realized that snapping is too buggy to be used, which made me regret a little bit to be a AD early adopter. And now I'm very worried because, from many posts on the forum, it looks like AD team is not aware of this, and possibly is not working on it. I was thinking to make a video to explain this in detail, but I don't think it is necessary: Just open a new file, draw some lines and curves, and try to use snapping. Sometimes it will be buggy, and sometimes it will not work at all. The "show snapping candidates" sometimes highlights objects randomly... the "snap to object geometry" doesn't work at all... Well... sorry if I was a little hard with it, but this is too big to overcome.

    Isolate object(s)

    I hope to see this new feature ASAP. A must have feature in any 2d or 3d design software.
