  1. +1 Previewing changes in small details (color changes, especially gradients) is impossible because the blue line gets in the way.
  2. If you're referring to toolbox, menu backgrounds both Affinity and Adobe have options to switch lo light or dark frames. I agree with this: Although Adobe fixed this too a while back with CC. Too many colors in UI is distracting and the BW option in Affinity makes the icons lose focus because they have too much going on.
  3. I know this is a small part of what you plan to achieve and I don't mean to imply that it should be a priority but to be honest that was also my first impression of the UI as well. It's not necessarily the colors but the way they are executed. Some have too much details, outdated or are plain confusing. The colors don't follow a particular palette and lack consistency. Even the toolbar ones like 'breaking points' and 'join' etc. seem out of context. The persona icons also could use some work on context and execution. Not sure what market you aim at but it does make an impression. The iPad version of Photo seems a lot better IMO. Anyway, I use your software from time to time for personal projects and prefer some of the features and workflow over other design software. Glad you guys are stepping forward and won the Microsoft developing award.
  4. I agree with both options being available. Exactly how I want is sometimes dictated by the grid not a sketch.
  5. In some cases this limit is practical. Let's say I want to have this simple line. I know I have a 10 px increment on the grid lines, I can easily reproduce this in the future without having to estimate. I don;t always use a sketch to design something and the grid is a great reference. If not, why use any kind of snapping if it's limiting?
  6. @Ben Alright, so to sum it up there will be a snapping feature where handle length "a" and "b" will be a perfect match. I agree that making an arc with the snapping feature did not give the same results as making it with a circle but it's somewhat faster and symmetric. Right now I'd have to make a circle convert it to a curve, select points, break them up, delete points so only one segment is there. BTW there should be an easier way of deleting segments.
  7. @Ben How about a feature that ensures that the curve is perfectly tangent to the red lines (in this case the bottom one) while dragging the handle. EDIT: I've used this feature in Illustrator to achieve something similar to this concept of curvature. If there's a better way then by all means I'm all for it.
  8. I should have said symmetric curvature on both ends of the line. It's not constant curvature.
  9. Constant curvature on both ends. I don't want the curve to have a longer bezier then the opposite point. My examples above don't have a constant radius but if I go overboard with the keypoint I risk damaging the tangency of the line ends. Plus it's a lot faster then current tools. it would be cumbersome to use the pie/circle tool for most of these situations.
  10. Here's two examples of where this can come in handy. Making a constant radius arc this way doesn't give the same result as using the circle tool but it's faster in situations where a perfect arc isn't necessary.
  11. Obviously we don't need handle snapping to perform basic shapes. I use handle snapping in a lot of situations including typefaces.
  12. How would you achieve a shape similar to this using Affinity? You could eyeball it but it's not accurate.
  13. They said they'll introduce it but not when. I too am confined by using this feature. Also be sure to check vector exports. I had issues with clients that couldn't import affinity eps in illustrator successfully. I'd like to ditch Adobe too but it's hard to do that when everyone else (mostly agencies that are my clients and need to do further modifications) is using it. Maybe one day.
