  1. Figured... it's CTRL-ALT-BACKSPACE under Windows. However, as TonyO said, the algorithm is not too smart trying to maintain the curvature.
  2. Hi! Sounds very good, but how does this work on Windows? Tried any combination of modifier keys and DEL/BACKSPACE, but nothing happens. Thanks!
  3. True, but it misses a Center! That cripples it, because how do you rotate/scale about an arbitrary center now? Illustrator can do this! Posted this here already. Sorry, bit OT. +1 for Free Transform!!
  4. Illustrator can do this - select nodes(points), an there's this "axis icon"/center to place.
  5. Hello! It's about consistency. I see a transform box, and I expect it to have a center, no matter if I'm in object mode (Move Tool) or component mode (Node Tool). One can ask the opposite question: what sense does it make NOT to be able to rotate or scale about a freely chosen point in point mode?? Also, the transform panel is inactive in that mode. Shouldn't be, either. Thanks for listening!!
  6. Gosh, you are right! That friggin right mouse button has to be held as well... A-Team, please listen: stop that nonsense with the right mouse button as modifier key! It's simply not a good idea. It's very hard and fumbly to do that with a Wacom pen, which is my input device of choice. Same goes for the feature "Select object when intersects with the selection marquee", which is also invoked when pressing LMB and RMB at the same time. This is simply unergonomic, could you please listen to that feedback you got from many people already and change it to some modifier key on the keyboard? Thanks so much for the feature, though!!
  7. Hi! Talking about the improved Node Tool, not the Move Tool.
  8. Hello! Has been discussed, I know, but scattered all over the place. With the Node Tool, it should be possible to delete nodes in these variants: - Without adapting the neighbouring tangents - that's the existing behavior. Shortcut could be: left-doubleclick (besides DEL) - With adapting the neighbouring tangets, so that the curvature is preserved as good as possible (CorelDraw can do this). Possible shortcut: CTRL-left-doubleclick - With also deleting the neighbouring curve segments. Possible shortcut: CTRL-ALT-left-doubleclick. Regarding shortcuts: Choose any combination of mouse pointer and modifier keys you like for node editing, but avoid having to use DEL or other keys wich are harder to reach. Thanks for considering!! Best regards
  9. Hello! AD is here. Tried that "move by center" thing, but cannot figure how it's done - it hasn't been introduced yet, right? Cheers!
  10. Hello! The new Transform Mode of the Node Tool in AD 1.7 is a very welcome feature, thanks for that! Looks like there is the transform Center missing, though, like in the Move Tool. I'm aware that this center would be a temporary, meaning after deselecting the nodes, it will be lost. However, it should be there. Could you put this on the list, please? Thanks!!

  12. Hello! To confirm: In the field of architecture, people use Illustrator's DWG/DXF import/export frequently - in the architectural office I work in since recently, it's the same. DWG/DXF, are industry standards, and will remain so for many years. Implementing those will open the doors to the world of architectural graphics some more - it's in your interest! Don't filter down your target group to graphic designers/illustrators only. At home, I have replaced Adobe by Affinity. Would love to see this happening in the office, too, one day. And forget about PDF workarounds. Thanks!!
  13. +1 for DWG import/export! Thanks!!
  14. Thanks! If it is not asked too much... (please do!! =D )
