  1. Hi, very pleased contour tool being worked on, but did notice this issue: For example: 1. Draw a five pointed star 2. Select contour tool with following settings: Radius: 5mm, Contour type: Mitre, Mitre: 5, Contour cap: None, Contour fill: Auto closed 3. Press: 'Bake Appearance' button 4. Select Contour tool again 5. Set radius to: -5mm (or any smaller size) See attached screenshot and file contour-minus-radius-prob.afdesign
  2. Thanks Sean. I was only wondering, being the season for drawing stars β­πŸŽ„πŸ˜Š
  3. Just checked beta - I didn't notice any visible progress with the '60 degree' corner problem with the new contour tool.
  4. I’ve noticed quite a few multiple feature request 'wish list' posting recently on the Affinity forums. I've an idea the posts might be born out of three areas of frustration (beyond people not reading the forum rules): Difficulty searching the forum to find the most relevant post. For example, 'knife tool' finds numerous posts, (12 forum pages worth!). Features/tools can be described in different ways. For example, 'cut tool', 'knife tool', 'scissors tool' etc. Essential/basic features have been missing or broken now for a long time. For example, true vector brushes,
  5. Beta Designer immediately closes/crashes when attempting to expand a stroke (file attached). 1) Select line 2) Layers > Expand Stroke 3) Shutdown! expand-line.afdesign
  6. Are you saying the centres have to be aligned for divide to work properly? πŸ˜‰ I think understand what you are saying as an explanation why the missing object is in a different position, but what I'm saying is the object should not be missing in the first place! I've tried a similar divide exercise in two other graphics programs and do not get this happening either when the ellipses are aligned or not. This is the kind of thing I would expect to end up with when I drag the divided shapes apart:
  7. Here's another observation in Beta relating to the divide option demonstrating it's not working quite right! divide.afdesign
  8. Just to mention this beta also crashes if you change the page orientation, for example from portrait to not portrait in the document setup dialogue box.
  9. Thanks for the link. Windows is reporting the graphics driver is up to date and working correctly but I may try investigate a bit further. Do you think using the new OpenCL acceleration option will actually make much difference with these type of β€˜built in’ graphics chips or is it really aimed at dedicated graphics cards?
  10. Beta I don't have a graphic card, only Intel HD Graphics 4600 (i3-4000M CPU), but out of interest thought I'd see if I could squeeze a bit more performance out of this old laptop. Not sure if this is expected but this is the message I received from Windows notification panel just before beta stopped working.
  11. These presets are a great feature. Should they also be able to hide/unhide things like rulers and left/right studio panels too? Thanks 😁
  12. Beta - Small thing but when starting up the welcome panel is sometimes not the top most panel.
  13. Matt, thanks for the explanation behind the programming efficiency and UI with regard to the Contour tool. Your right of course, once you've used it, it's obvious that a contour has been applied or not.
  14. Thanks Sean, I guessed that might be the case that you are aware of this. Obviously it's early days and the team are working hard to develop this but I wondered if this development will eventually lead on to a blend tool? πŸ˜€
