  1. Greetings, I hope, this is actually a missing feature and not just a feature I missed. I find myself often wanting to readjust a previously created artboard to fit an object (shape, image, etc.) but without snapping this becomes messy everytime. Being able to make artboards snap would make this kind of work way smoother. Until this feature will be available I'll have to live with the workaround of moving the object outside the artboards and then creating a new artboard (funny enough when creating a new artboard snapping to object works fine, so why doesn't it work when readjusting?) Actually this feature would be a request for every affinity product that features artboards and snapping Thanks for reading!
  2. Greetings, while researching another issue I came across an issue I've been struggling with in the stable release for quite a while: When selecting a shape tool (pen tool, rectangle tool, circle tool, etc.) and immediately changing the colors and then drawing a shape, the colors (and stroke settings) will actually apply to the previously selected object instead of the newly drawn. This goes even further for the pen tool whereas you have to at least draw two nodes to be able to adjust color and stroke for the current shape. In my mind when I have a shape tool selected the context sensitive bar (which is actually changing depending on the selected tool, NOT the selected object, so there's an ergonomical issue, as well). should reflect settings to the shapes I am ABOUT TO DRAW. If, on the other hand, I select either the object selection (V) or the node selection (A) tool, I would expect the context sensitive bar to reflect options and functions corresponding to the SELECTED object. For me it is important to pre-set color and stroke to accurately visualize the design I am making. Right now I am forced to painstakingly readjust the shape (sometimes each node in a complex shape seperately ) if something doesn't fit. I hope I could bring my point across, and why I think this should be adressed from an ergonomical point of view. I attached a video illustrating the issue both in the beta (where I'd expect the change to be more reasonable than in the stable release), as well as in the release version (where the affected object even is the artboard which I very, very rarely change settings like color or stroke, if at all - do artboards even have a stroke?) I wonder, if other people found this to be an issue in their workflow. I am also aware, that this is a matter of workflow and taste, so I would suggest adding an option rather than changing it completely. Thank you for reading! Shape Tools Color.mov
  3. Greetings, I've found an issue in the recent AD Beta build 1.7.0.209 When drawing a shape with the pen tool, in the release build you could adjust any node in a selected shape with the pen tool to have the effect of the left click, meaning readjusting both node handles equally. In the current build this is not possible, instead left clicking a node with the pen tool starts a new shape at that point. Is this an issue, a new sub mode I don't know of or did this functionality got moved to another node? I hope I could illustrate the issue sufficently and I hope this function will not be removed entirely, because it is incredibly useful, especially for symmetrical designs. AD_Pen_Tool_Issue.mov
