  1. Oh.. all of those?? So far I had just seen it was disabled with the node tool... It's really not something I see why it should be as is now in the beta... I really hope they put it back to how it was if possible, as I flip and rotate a lot and this means extra clicking.

    Overlapping nodes behaviour

    Neither do I... but sometimes I don't see the use of something until one day... "oh! I could do this using that" ... So probably there mut be a good use to it haha...

    Overlapping nodes behaviour

    Yes I could see the icons, but didn't remember to look at the status bar with the info so I wasn't sure what they meant... it's a bit down there to the left and I didn't even see the hint, even knowing one always gets that info in the bar for extra help It all works very well now

    Overlapping nodes behaviour

    Thanks a lot, Aammppaa. I got all until the 5th point... although I was not 100% sure about the use of it... Now I get it! After all, it was the "long" wait that got it all confusing, as it seemed to be sometimes working, sometimes not. Now I wait a bit longer and it works all the time. And Alfred was right, the fact that the starting and ending nodes are flipped, makes them swirl like this. Solved then! Thanks y'all! Kiss, I.

    Overlapping nodes behaviour

    Thanks both for the reply. I am still struggling to get this to replicate on the mac. Even getting the nodes to perfectly overlap which is what happened when the curves changed (if that's what it is supposed to be doing when the icon changes to just 1 square from the original 2), it's hard to get done as it seems to happen (or work) 10% of the times only, which might be also a bug? Seems to be easier in the windows version though. It has happened several times to me that when overlapping 2 nodes from different curves, the paths change to something different. No idea if intentional or not yet... haven't made up my mind hahaha.. So 2 issues here I'd say I find, if I'm understanding this right: 1. Hard to get it to do this overlapping consistently (change from 2 little squares icons on the node tool to just 1) 2. Change of curves in one of the 2 paths when a node in being overlapped into another curve's node.
  6. Is there any good reason for this? I really find it uncomfortable for my workflow. Before one could use the transform optios no matter if one was using the node or the move tool. Now one has to switch to the move tool when trying to use transform when the node tool is the one active. Is there any conflict in having it ON also for the node tool? Thanks!
  7. Hi, Could anyone shed some light on this behaviour when overlapping 2 nodes by draggin one on top of the other? It changes the paths of one of the curves and I am a bit confused on why this is happening. I never experienced this so I assume it has to do with some of the new node tool functionalities, but I don't get to see what or why... Also, it's a bit hard to replicate... Sometimes this happens, sometimes is really hard to replicate. Thanks! nodetool_overlap.mp4
  8. Ok, so this means is OFF by default, right? And if I need this option, I simply turn it ON. I think I like it better like it is now. Thanks for the reply!
  9. I noticed that "preserve selection when creating new curves" is not ON by default anymore. Is there any specific reason for this change? Just a small detail I'm curious about, but anyways think I prefer it as "not by default". Congrats, all looks pretty smooth in the new version!
  10. You got it so right! haha... so one of the things was that the dev and I wanted something not overly flat despite the trends, but not totally skeuomorphic cause of the trends lol... So I proposed an in between and I think this got a nice not boring flavour, and very clean. I also think there's lots of room for skeuomorphism in the music industry and I think there will always be. And so I keep doing lots of it cause I love it! Yes, my Deviantart is there for experiments and other kind of artwork. Kissand thanks for taking the time to comment on this project!
  11. Thanks Marc! Yeah, this keyboard looks a bit curved but we had several designs for it to choose from. This would have still be fine-tuned probably, as well as the turn for the knobs or the 4 arrow button that eventually became only 2 buttons for the sake of being able to really use it with comfort. In the project I posted in my portfolio, you'll see there's another design for the keyboard. And I agree, yes I should post more! hahaha. Been working a lot lately in Photoshop and traditional techniques, so ... heheh.. well..
  12. This is a 2017 project I was not yet able to showcase. It was a fantastic project to create and design the iPad version ( plus a UI for the plug in version) from the polyphonic synthesizer Redominator (Audiorealism) that finally was not released due to business reasons out of my control. However, it was nearly finished both from design and dev points of view, and I'm showcasing it a couple of years later, so I can tell you that back in the day, apart from a couple of little bugs moving things with the cursor keys and some issues I had with the slicing part, the whole experience overall was lots of fun and I loved it, as much as the result. This is a preview of the interface. You can see many more details and a test demo video on this link: https://www.behance.net/gallery/75938293/UI-deisgn-Redominator-(Polyphonic-Synthesizer)-iPad-Air?
  13. Hi peeps! My first class for Skillshare is live and at the moment, totally FREE! The class is called “LEARN TO USE THE PEN TOOL on Affinity Designer”, and you will be able to learn how to use this tool FOR GOOD, learning the 3 different methods I use to get my drawings done. I’d be very grateful if additionally, you'd use the referral link to sign up for a 2 month free trial that you can cancel at ay time to help me financially. (Skillshare pays me, you don't!). This way not only you'd be able to watch my class, but all the classes in the platform for 2 complete months. I will be also happy to assist you with any doubts you might find along the course. You can find the referral link for this free class in the description for this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aTLFnWXoP1k
  14. Thanks Uncle Mez for letting more ppl know about the course! I really appreciate it. When I want to trace a perfect curve I either use the method I explain in lesson 7 of the course (symmetrical segments) or method 3 in lesson 10 (where I draw the heart shape) to make my life really easy, which basically is what fde101 suggested plus refining with the corner tool. It is not exactly Ai curvature tool, but I think it does a pretty good job! Thanks again and let me take the chance to ask you please, if you take the course and like it, to review it. It'll help me a lot grow my channel there. Kiss!

    Thanks Miguel. That was it. Thanks Pixel pest. yes I do use it too, but the issue was related to the background that Miguel pointed at. Kiss!
