  1. @Madame @gdenby @Wosven Thank you to all of you guys for taking the time to reply. I was able to follow your steps and achieve what I wanted. @gdenby I definitely get what your saying about not following Illustratior tutorials because of the different features and naming conventions. I guess I’m just trying to take the approach of challenging myself to get to know Designer so well that I am able to look at pretty much whatever and reproduce it. You guys made it look really easy lol. I definitely need to mess around with the break, join, and close curve options some more to understand them better. Thanks again.

    Adjust stroke size

    If you mean you’d like to make the stroke weight thicker or thinner then: 1. Select the object 2. On the right side under the colour picker you’ll see a stroke symbol with a stroke number underneath it; click on that 3. A window should slide open containing a slider for the stroke width. You can either slide it to the right to adjust or tap it and enter a number. Hope that’s what you were looking for.
  3. Hey Guys, I’m still new to graphic design, I know this is probably a simple question but I can’t seem to figure out how to replicate this. I was watching the Aaron Draplin video below. Around the 9:30 mark he uses circles to make water waves. I tried to figure it out but I can’t seem to figure out how to replicate what he is doing. The closest I can get is align a bunch of circles with no stroke and combine the circles. Next, I put a rectangle over top and then subtract from the circles. What am I missing? I’m using designer on IPad. Thanks.

    Thanks Gabe.

    Hey Gabe, Are you able to at least confirm that its in the plans? Thanks

    Hey Gabe, Would you be able to advise if there are plans to bring all of the desktop keyboard shortcuts to the iPad anytime soon? Will version 1.7 have this? As it stands right now, selecting nodes and objects is very finicky and at times pretty frustrating. Allowing keyboard shortcuts would really speed up the process and make the entire experience of using the app a lot more enjoyable. Even if the accuracy is improved, its just nice to have the option of using the keyboard shortcuts. Thanks.
  7. It would be really helpful if we can use desktop keyboard shortcuts using a Bluetooth keyboard. Do you know if there are any plans for this in a future update ?
  8. I agree, it needs to be improved upon. The only way to deal with it so far is to remember to zoom in before trying to move the node.

    One of my first works (isometry)

    I am really new to this as well but I agree with what Garry P said. It’s a good attempt Also, thanks for the tutorial link Simon Degay.
  10. I have a Bluetooth keyboard that I use with my IPad and it would be really cool if I could use the regular keyboard shortcuts from desktop on my iPad. Especially considering that there are still a lot of issues with the selection accuracy. Some shortcuts do work, but not all of them. Any chances of making this happen? I think this would really make sense especially if ios13 ends up bringing the iPad closer to a desktop. At that point, creating an option to make designer on iPad look like the desktop app would be cool too. Thanks

    Snapping has timed out

    I'm working on a project at the moment, there are 4536 objects in the file so far. I selected all the objects and hit "divide" which took a few seconds to process which is not usual. As soon as I put in the 4536th object, everytihng started lagging. If I try and drag a shape it'll just sit there and then move to the new position about 30 seconds later. I then get a message saying "sanpping has timed out". Desinger then freezes up and crashes. I've tried to reopen the project a few times and the same thing happens. I finally turn snapping off and it seems to be back to normal but now I don't have the ability to snap my objects. I guess the amount of objects is causing an issue but that shouldn't be happening. Has anyone come across this and knows of a fix? thanks
  13. Hey guys, I did a quick search before posting and it looks like somoeone already posted about this a while back but the topic was in the old feature request section, I wasn't sure if anyone visited that section anymore. When you turn snapping on, designer will show you the distance between two objects when you move them closer or farther apart from each other, or the distance between your object and the edge of the canvas etc. The issue I'm having is that it is extremely difficult to read what those numbers are. I was just working on a project and it got so bad that I was guessing the numbers or eyeballing the positions of the objects. Is there something I can do in my settings to make the numbers bigger? If not, is this something that can be fixed in upcoming updates. thanks
  14. Just going to bump this. I was just working on a project and found it extremely difficult to read the numbers. It got to the point where I was pretty much guessing the numbers/eyeballing it. Is there something I can do in my settings to make it easier to read? thanks.
