    Joel_Cory got a reaction from JET_Affinity in Feature Request: Vector Brush (repeat vector shapes along path)   
    Hello,
    Long time Illustrator user, trying to switch over to Affinity Designer...
    One feature I miss is the ability to draw an vector shape (simple or complex) and use it as a brush. A bicycle chain for example.
    I know there is a raster version of this. This just doesn't seem as good as vectors...

    I just looked at Inkscape again... They have a warp capability, and text on path.... And it's free.

    Joel_Cory got a reaction from Kiarian in How do I warp text in Affinity Designer?   
    I'd like to chime in as well. Over the 20 years I've been a designer I've used CorelDraw, Freehand, Illustrator, and recently switched to trying out Affinity Designer. I was actually a little shocked when I discovered that AD didn't have this rudimentary vector manipulation tool... As I stated, all these tools had this capability and this was 20 years ago.
    I never even checked the specs before I purchased... because what vector illustration tool product would ever ship without it? It was inconceivable.

    Please make a concerted effort to build this capability into your application, it's a crippling omission.
    Basic logo work is severely hampered, and has forced me to go back to Illustrator CS2 (released in April, 2005 - 14 years ago...) to continue my design work that I had purchased AD to do.

    Hi Kiarian,
    Yes, these brushes are based on raster images/textures and will lose quality if you enlarge them. Currently Affinity Designer doesn't yet support pure vector brushes based on vector objects as Illustrator. This is an improvement that will come later in a future version.
