  1. Hello, I really like that there is an option to align to last selected object and for me it is one of the most used features, but I really wish that there was an option to set a shortcut for align to last selected. Right now shortcut only aligns to selection bounds and it doesn't take your settings in align panel into consideration. So whenever I want to align to last selected object, I have to use the panel, which is much more time consuming than using shortcuts.
  2. Or at least have an option to disable it. Not only it takes a lot more steps to undo my previous actions, but also when I undo 20 steps, then click anywhere, even if it's just deselecting something, all my redo history is wiped.
  3. When I place 4 nodes in perfect square shape and turn them into smart nodes, I would assume it would create a perfect circle. But instead it creates this odd shape: It would take at least 8 nodes to create somewhat normal-looking circle. I think this behavior makes smart nodes quite useless. I would say Inkscape's Auto-Smooth Nodes are much closer to what I would expect from Smart Nodes.
  4. If there's no way to set curve's smoothness or curvature, it's using some default values. And I pointed that the default values Affinity chose to go with, don't make much sense.
  5. Hello, I tried to google an answer to this question, but couldn't find it anywhere, so I'm asking you. I would like to know, whether there's a way to disable cropping to page when rasterizing objects in Affinity Designer?
  6. Alright, thanks. Hopefully we'll see it in the future (at the very least, it should respect page bleed). So the only workaround for me right now is resizing the document to larger and back.
  7. Another workaround is creating separate document file. Then when you rescale that document, it will rescale your blur settings as well, allowing you to go over 1024px. Don't understand why is it forcefully limited to 1024px in the first place.
  8. Gaussian Blur effect is a very good replacement for mesh tool, by blurring curved objects inside the background. But sadly it is limited to 1024px. This becomes a problem in high-resolution formats, like A0 format or larger..
  9. Well, my bad. I did not know that.. I will go and change the shortcut right away. I guess this post is as good as closed.
  10. Hello, here's my suggestion for Affinity Designer and Photo that I would find very useful: Allow pasting plain text without any styles and formatting using Ctrl + Shift + V shortcut.
  11. Hello everyone. Is there a way to resize and rotate a rectangle without stretching the pattern? I know that if you use the Node Tool, patter says intact, but that's not what I'm looking for, I tried to google an answer to this question, but I couldn't find it. So that's why I'm asking here now. Can anybody help me?
  12. That sucks, because when it comes to patterns, you don't always want to deform them every time you rotate or resize object.
  13. Sorry that I didn't clarify - I'm talking about bitmap pattern created using Fill Tool. It's pretty useful tool, but I cannot figure out how to prevent it from stretching the texture.
  14. Live mesh warp filter - I second that!
  15. Hello, I would like to propose a feature, that I find VERY useful in CorelDraw. When you delete a node, it tries to preserve the line form by modifying surrounding nodes. It is very useful, mainly when you're looking to simplify the lines by deleting unnecessary nodes (simplified lines are much easier to edit afterwards).
  16. Thank you! That's what I was looking for. But what kind of ridiculous shortcut is that.. Any way to change it?
  17. Pressing Alt + Delete doesn't allow me to delete the highlighted node.

    Problem with Pen Tool

    But shouldn't this be posted in Bugs forum section? Not in Questions?
  19. Best solution would naturally be to have both options: - Affinity way where deleting node preserves surrounding node handle positions - Corel way, where deleting node preserves path form (maybe combination of keys like Ctrl + Del)
  20. Hello everyone, I've been looking for an answer to this and I can't seem to find it so I'm asking you directly. So I know there is a way to delete node handles holding ALT key, but how do you "drag out" a new handle from the node? (Edited) Here are the ways to make the handle reappear: - dragging the line next to the node (you don't have to drag to sides, you can drag along the path) You can hold ALT if you don't want to affect path beyond nodes, but that will automatically turn your nodes into sharp ones. - dragging node with left + right click and moving it "out of the way" to make the hidden handle appear - converting node to smooth node (can be very destructive)
  21. Thank you everyone for your answers. Turns out that dragging the line really IS the easiest solution, but instead of dragging it to sides you drag along the line.. If the handle was "deleted" using the ALT key, it doesn't appear. If the handle was manually hidden under the node, it does appear. So this proves me that handle is actually removed and not just hidden under the node.
  22. Ok, so it exists under the node, which I would believe you even without the proof, but the real question is, HOW to get it out from under it? I believe there's no real way to do it, but if that's the case, it should be implemented soon..
  23. Thanks for letting me know.
  24. So it's been like 6 months already and this problem still persists. When moving objects by nodes, short freeze appears right after clicking and moving the node. Here is an example: https://i.imgur.com/8fVog6E.gifv Any kind of snapping was turned off. It's quite bothering, because every time you're trying to be precise and move nodes (or even objects), it does this.. When compared to Sherif DrawPlus, there's no stutter whatsoever. Please fix this issue soon as possible if you can, because it is quite important..
  25. Thank you for your response. Yes please, if you'd be so kind, pass it to them. Maybe something could be done about it. Does it only do this on Windows or on Mac too?
