Looking for a quick and simple way to achieve symmetrical use of the pen tool in Affinity Designer.
Example/concept: Something like creating a letter "U" with the pen tool: Click for first point at top left of (future) letter, then click-drag horizontally at the bottom center of the U, then last click for the top right. But I want it to be precisely symmetrical, with both top points on the same line and the bottom point in the exact center between them. Is there a quick way to find center? And to align the top points?
Perhaps I need to use snap-to-guides or some such?
I'm sure there must be some easy way to accomplish this, but I'm just missing it. Been searching the (wonderful!) video tutorials and the help menu, but haven't found an answer yet. Please help, thanks.
PS: LOVE the programs you've created. As an old-time heavy Photoshop user (was there for the early battles - started on Macs in 1987 - as we all learned together to adapt to digital from the old exacto paste-up days), came to Affinity Photo first. It's wonderful - all the tools are there (and more!), just having to learn to push different buttons. Now trying to learn Designer and the learning curve is a bit steeper, having been only a peripheral user of Illustrator. Keep up the great work. Quark next?
