    Booleans problem

    Thanks for the update! Sorry to post a known issue -- I looked in the forum, but must have used the wrong search terms, as I didn't find it reported.
  2. Problem: items split with the boolean "divide" operation don't merge back together correctly using the "add" operation. Simplest steps to reproduce: (or see attached file for example that brought issue to my attention, or watch attached video for clarification) Create two concentric circles Subtract inner circle from outer circle Copy new "donut" and offset from original "Divide" two shapes Delete several segments "Add" remaining arcs Shape should be continuous outline, but is not.

    Some border work

    Loosely inspired by detail from some Art Deco buildings from the 30s in downtown Los Angeles.
  4. I often use guide lines when trying to make symmetric curves. I use them for positioning both nodes, and node handles. It would be nice if, when I have a node selected, I could create new guide lines without having to deselect/lose the node handles.

    Good to know. Thanks for the update.

    Thanks :)
  7. I have some design assignments that will use mixed text with English and languages that use Right-to-Left scripts. Unless I'm mistaken, I can't switch directions within a Text Frame. This necessitates either layering in text in post (using another program), or laboriously breaking the text into multiple sections and aligning the words manually. Having the ability to switch directions midstream would be very helpful!

    I'm a brand new user, and have been enjoying Affinity Designer. I haven't yet explored beyond the "Draw" Persona, but in many ways, the program hearkens back to the simplicity and power of the MacDraw / Claris Draw programs, but brought into a more modern world. I've been playing around with geometric tilings. This design has hundreds if not thousands of curves and filled areas, and I haven't really run into any performance problems (yet). I'm looking forward to seeing how far I can go with this!
