This is weird:
One of the most common tasks for me in Affinity Designer (IPad pro) is to use the Vector Crop tool to remove unwanted parts of an image, and at first this only crops to the shape of a square or rectangle so you wouldn’t use it to crop a complex shape.... BUT it creates a mask in your layers tab so you should be able to then manipulate that mask’s nodes/curves just like any other vector right?
kind of. Yes. If you know the secret.
At first you won’t be able to edit the points or lines in the Vector Crop mask. But I discovered that if you select the Corner Tool, and then round any corner of the mask (And then un-round it again because you likely weren’t wanting to round the corner), suddenly the mask’s points become editable like any other vector shape. I do this dozens of times per session.
Why?! Why should I be conducting this random and oblique method just to edit my vector crop mask? Haha. Please fix this!
