  1. I'm using Luxology (The Foundry) Modo as my example, since this is the application I know best. 1. Mirroring along the X and/or Y axis when drawing (Also see Workplane). I believe this one is self-explanatory. 2. Extending an edge. Select an edge (or 2 consecutive nodes) and activate + drag. The old nodes are left where they are and 2 new nodes+the edge between them can be dropped into the curve. 3. Workplane. Selection determines a new, temporary x-axis with appropriate 0,0. A new workplane is defined and as long as this workplane is not reset, all functions will act with X/Y axises defined by this workplane. This is extremely useful.
  2. After a lot of deliberation (and a wish to use APub), in the end I decided to use PagePlus X9 for my book in February. My gut feeling was that APub 'isn't quite there yet'.
  3. As it turns out, the problem was me (Of course 😀). See this thread:
  4. Yesterday I spent several hours drawing maps. After several hours without issues, I noticed the Pen Tool pointer had acquired a new symbol: the Circled Asterisk. This means the tool will "create a new curve from existing curve's node". In this mode, the Pen Tool will no longer extend a curve when you draw from an end node. I have no idea how the tool became stuck in this mode, nor how to remedy it. Most of my layers contain multiple curves and doing a Layer -> Geometry -> Separate Curves solved the issue for a little while, and the Pen Tool operated as normal. But shortly after the issue returned, including on the newly separated layers. The issue follows the saved document, so a restart doesn't help. Not sure if this is me doing something wrong, but I'm reporting it in case it's a bug.
  5. Hmm... I got it working again by doing Layer -> Geometry -> Separate Curves and then selecting the newly created layer containing the path I wanted to modify. Is it supposed to work like this? I'm willing to swear I have worked on several layers containing multiple curves all day without seeing this issue.
  6. That's the weird part: I have not enabled any options on the tool's options bar that I can see. (I've compared settings with another document where this doesn't happen, without noticing anything) Moving to a different curve layer doesn't help, even if it's a freshly created one. Opening the document on another computer gives the same result.
  7. Thanks a lot. I searched, but never hit that page for some reason. Any idea what toggles that mode so I can exit it?
  8. I created a new document and copied a couple of vector shape layers from another document. In the new document, the Pen Tool pointer has and icon that looks like a light blue circle with a 6-point star inside attached to it. I have no idea what this represents or how it can be deactivated. But in this mode, I can no longer join paths with the Pen Tool. Any idea what this is, and more important, how to get normal behaviour back?
  9. Perhaps applying the transparency tool (the icon resembling a glass) to the leftmost image achieves the same effect?
  10. I have no idea if this is supposed to work in the Affinity series. Although it's not relevant for the current Affinity products, out of curiosity I tested older Serif products. Shift-drag to deselect works in Serif DrawPlus X8 Shift-drag to deselect does NOT work in Serif PagePlus X9
  11. Hmm ... I'm not seeing this in a fresh document I created. At my end, shift-clicking on one of the selected shapes does indeed unselect only that particular shape.
  12. The initial test for responsiveness when manipulating pages showed terrific improvements. Yay!
  13. I don't get any of this in my tests, either. I tested with a new document.
