    No "beginner question" - and you have to start from the beginning :)

    Are you looking for something like this?


    It's exact it. Sorry, but I made a long course about the tools, interface, etc of Affinity Design! But sometimes I feel like I have lack of workflows to do things like that. 

    For example, to do this design I made: A circle, then use pen to draw the central curved lines, then use pen to draw over a 1/4 circle. I select 3 curves and select geometry merge curves (because I try with join/add and do not work). If I try to gress what is wrong with this merge, I cannot.

    I suppose you create it with another workflow and it's exact what I want!

    I import from Rhinoceros to Affinity Designer in pdf.

    Directly from Layouts.

    But I have to make a seperate pdf for every layer, otherwise Affinity Designer groups and subgroups the geometry randomly and you cannot maintain a reasonable layer structure.

    Which CAD are you using? Have you tried to import into AD via pdf?

    I've heard some CAD software is able to write pdfs with layers so it opens with layers in AD. Don't know if that is true.

    Appears to be same process of rhino. Export from autocad or bricscad each layer as pdf. BuT usually cad as a lot of layer, hatches, etc. It Is painful!

    Plus, the workflows of CAD sometimes demands some changes...

    I saw a video where the instructor copy (Ctrl c) all the geometries From autocad model space and paste into illustrator area!

  3. Greetings

    I came from Autocad technical draws and think may be useful to find tools like straight line, arc and other basic geometrical forms. I know you can do straight line with pen tools, but arcs from two points, from three points, switching from start, center, end or center, start, end can be easily made.

    Other nice feature can be import dxf it dwg technical draws.

    Thank you
