    Nichod got a reaction from JohaWeber in Multiple Layer Effects   
    I'm really happy to see that effects aren't in a floating dialog by default. Thank you! I hope that comes to the Window's variant of Designer. I haven't used DrawPlus in awhile..so it's possible it already has.
     
    One thing I always wished to see was multiple layer effects on a shape layer. So I could have 3 inner shadows layered on top of each other to create a specific visual effect.

    I'm really hoping to see the gradient mesh tool. I was always a fan of the way it was implemented in DrawPlus over how Illustrator's worked.

    Just please don't restrict the mesh to the shape itself. That is the way it works in Illustrator which ends up limiting the flexibility of the tool. I really liked the Mesh Fill in DrawPlus, and that it was independent of the actual shape for creative freedom.
     
    @MEB the separation is a plus really. Though I can see the benefit of allowing both.

    The smart snapping / guides are really coming along! Any chance we can get distance functionality from other shapes as well? I added a gif demonstrating the functionality.

    There are tons of examples on Dribbble. And vector brushes allow fine media style artwork to be created that is scalable for large print projects, and that is incredibly useful.

    Just a project I did for NDC 2014. I don't have a lot of time to work on personal work, but I'm trying to find the time. Most of my work is internal, and private unfortunately. 
     
    This was my first serious go at using Affinity Designer for a project. It was a decent experience, but I did miss a few key things.

    I've attached a gif showing Sketch with multiple fills, and shadows. In this case it's icon design. Currently in Designer I'd have to create multiple shapes.

    Nichod got a reaction from B4ttleCat in Drag guides from ruler with any tool   
    Which I think is wrong. Right now I'd say it's one of the most frustrating limitations. You have to constantly switch to the move tool to access guide creation. Illustrator, Sketch, etc don't require the move tool to be active. It's a weird quirk that is a bad design choice, and UX.

    That is excellent to hear. I assumed with a name like "Designer" that you are going to offer some focused UI tools. Hence me making it a point to communicate regarding the tools I need / use on a daily basis.

    This was my original idea, and how I presented it in my feature request. (linked to above) I'd also welcome the guide appearing on hovering over the corresponding ruler. This is incredibly useful to quickly check alignment without having to create a guide, and unnecessary visual clutter.
     
    I've attached a gif that illustrates the guide on hover, and it also shows the pixel guide (as requested here: that Sketch provides that are incredibly useful. The tool + ruler guide feature, and the distance based guides are probably the two tools I'd miss the most if I switched to Designer from Sketch. And would probably prevent me from using Designer at work since precision is key with UI design.

    Being able to only drag guides from the ruler with the Move Tool is not desired.
    We should be able to drag guides from the rulers even when using any other tool.
    Being able to create guides (while using other tools) with Alt+click on the ruler is nice but not accurate enough and doesn't work with snap.
