    jackamus got a reaction from Gear maker in EXTRUSION   
    Has anyone suggested that an 'Extrusion' feature is added to Design? By Extrusion I mean that a closed shape could be dragged to create a sort of a 3d effect as below.

    Is it possible to set 'Scale with object' as a default?

    Very profound Ronny! If you keep doing this enough times you finish up with a crashed Affinity Forum!

    Hi Alex,
    I was looking for an answer to a question that I had since forgot! When I found it was you who answered it! :lol:

    Hi Alex,
    I do follow that. I suppose that I wasn't thinking clearly and didn't give enough thought to what I wanted to add and what I wanted to subtract. Looking at again it was pretty obvious.

    That's a good question - probably one for the developers. I don't quite understand it either.

    jackamus got a reaction from denironaut in Why so expensive?   
    I agree but would add that as with emails it can be difficult to express feelings when using a minimum of words. It is so easy to get the 'wrong end of the stick'.

    Deeds, you really need to consider how you come across to other people, your virtual social skills are appalling, writing long winded posts is a futile exercise, nobody considers your points to be rational anymore. It seems you're unable to accept the possibility you may be wrong! Perhaps in real life you're an ok kind of guy, perhaps not, but one things for sure, nobody wants to be labelled a troll. Perhaps say your sorry then we can move on.

    The right tool, for the right job, in the hand of the right artist. that is all you need. Use what allows you to achieve the result you want. Plain and simple. the path may be different but you land in the same location every time.

    jackamus got a reaction from peter in How to do a weave   
    Thanks for this. I'm not into trying out more complex graphic software. I would rather be challenged to create some great using much simpler software - you have to think more. That is why I marvel at the skill of wood-carvers, stone masons and artists without the use of electricity, cameras and they had to make their own tools.

    jackamus got a reaction from Gear maker in Line alignment   
    Regarding line alignment, I'm doing an experiment to draw a helical gear using Beta. The Cog tool is very good but there is one extra adjustment that would make it perfect. All gears do not have flat sides to the teeth, they are always curved and an adjustment tool would complete it and maybe add a root radius adjustment as well.

    Gear marker, I'm completely with you. The nudge distance should be independent of the zoom.

    jackamus got a reaction from ronnyb in Custom fills?   
    Yes I did realise that it would take you out of vector drawing but not knowing what you are trying to achieve I'm shooting in the dark.
     
    The stipple effect wasn't done on a computer it was done by hand on a drawing board with a pen - 40 years ago before electronic calculators! This would be a brilliant tool to have in Affinity and would be of great benefit to technical illustrators.

    jackamus got a reaction from Gear maker in Custom fills?   
    Thanks and that is what I thought might be the case. These kind of fills would be ideal for engineering drawings but if in the meantime a bitmap has to be used then some thought would have to be given to scaling the fills so that the hatching would all be the same. By that I mean it would be no good drawing a shape, adding some hatching then re-scaling the shape.
