    nonresidentalien got a reaction from StephenK in [ADe] Align/distribute to key object: desperately needed for Scientists   
    Hi guys,
     
    I have recently switched my whole research group from using AI to using Affinity Designer. However, the thing that every single user heavily complained about, and that really limits the utility of AffinityDesigner for us, is the lack of an option to select a key or reference object that stays put during alignment and distribution operations.
     
    This is very crucial for the preparation of scientific data plots where one really cannot have the data points shifting around when aligning them to their labels. It would also be very helpful for preparing multi-paneled figure etc.
     
    Also, while at it, a 'select same color/stroke/fill/...' feature would be great, and the eyedropper tool could use some attention (eg. for text and vector objects)
     
    Please make these available, and I will promise, that there will be a landslide of scientists moving away from their current overpriced rental software to using Affinity Designer
     
    Thanks

    nonresidentalien reacted to Lano in Calligraphic Brushes   
    Very keen to see calligraphic brushes implemented in Affinity Designer! I know this is on the current feature request list, but just giving it a vote, and hoping it will make the next version.
     
    I do like the Illustrator implementation, where I can modify the brush by rotating the elliptical stroke profile, and view the calligraphic effect on the stroke live.
     
    At the moment, I need to do this in Illustrator, then expand the outline and copy / paste, export / import / open in Designer, and this process invariably makes a bit of a mess of it by adding numerous bezier points.
     
    I have experimented with the "Pressure" option in Designer's Stroke palette, but this obviously is not intended to be the same functionality.
     
    Thanks!
