  1. Ugh. I sincerely can't believe this design mistake still exists in V2.
  2. You're pretty much spot on. Designer is really missing a lot. I was excited at first, but the more I use V2, the more I'm let down by what should have been. Add to that the headache of transferring everything from V1 to V2 on the iPad app is a huge hassle.
  3. I know Apple's sandboxing is an issue, but it would have been great to have a few bulk export options from the V1 iPad apps to unload: all custom brushes, all installed fonts, all assets etc. to the files app so we can more easily install them in V2. Doing this one at a time is ridiculously time consuming. And there is no option to export a font.
  4. Here's a quick samples of the ridiculous amount of warping tools in VS. They have regular and power node based envelope distortion, brush based warping and distortion as well as path based warping. You can stack any of them together as well. VS_Warptext.mov
  5. (Copied my response in a V1 thread here for visibility in V2.) It's very useful for freehand warping, but anything structured, (like for typography when you need symmetry & verticals/horizontals to stay true,) it is a bit of a chore to use. We need more behaviors and tools: 1. The nodes to be able to snap with modifier key like a regular node. Vertical, horizontal, 45 degrees. 2. Have a toggle or modifier for symmetrical node behavior both in same direction and opposite directions. 3. Better presets that are easier to edit. Employing a special node like the shape tools use would be extremely useful for preset use. This way we can make flag, raised edge, and warps that need symmetry with ease. (See Vector Styler). Vector Styler easily remains the gold standard for best implemented vector warping, especially for type, IMO. There are so many options and they take literal seconds to employ. It is still faster to copy from Designer, warp in VS and paste back in Designer than it is to manually move every node for an envelope distort where you need to ensure vertical/horizontal lines stay true, (ex. for a raised edge or flag type effect). I urge the Affinity devs to give it a close look and see about employing similar usability.
  6. After years of begging, pleading and demanding, we finally have vector warping. I'm very happy to finally have it, but I honestly can't say I like it very much for every use. It's very useful for freehand warping, but anything structured, (like for typography when you need symmetry & verticals/horizontals to stay true,) it is a bit of a chore to use. We need more behaviors and tools: 1. The nodes to be able to snap with modifier key like a regular node. Vertical, horizontal, 45 degrees. 2.

  7. 3. More presets with sliders for different classic envelope distortions - typically those used for typography like; flag, rising side warp, etc. 4. Add modification key to allow symmetrical warping (ex. pull nodes on left and right side toward center at same time). 5. Allow option for node snapping (ex. level with another node,) when editing mesh. 6. Allow options for 45 and 90 degree movement lock when moving nodes or handles while holding SHIFT.
  8. Nice work. I did a double take when I saw Fallon. Didn't expect to see her in the Affinity forums.
  9. In regards to the Corel Draw talk: If you're on a Mac, just get Vector Styler from the app store to hold you over until Affinity supports it. You can literally copy and paste the curve/group/layer between the two applications, so no need to save out a file and reopen it.
  10. Sitting silent isn't how one gets changes made. Adobe has everyone over a barrel which is why a lot of people are looking for alternatives. If it bores you, why are you in the thread?
  11. Right. I would imagine it would take much less CPU/GPU processing than pushing pixels around. DrawPlus is the legacy app I was referring to.
  12. The point is that some of these tools exist in-part already in Photo. Also they existed in past legacy Serif apps. No excuse for the missing tools - especially warping.
