  1. Thanks
    Huvir got a reaction from MwamiAnim8 in Workarounds for Distortion, Warp, or Perspective distort?   
    Recently I came across Photopea. Runs in browser: NO INSTALL needed (there is even Chrome app to run locally without Internet access), it is FREE and you have the WARP functionality with a bunch of STYLES to choose from (arc, bulge, flag, shell, ...). Those are forms with handles for fine tuning. Since the option is a little bit hidden, I give you a quick guide:
    1) All paths MUST be on one layer (take a closer look especially after importing SVG from AD - you should  merge layers if necessary)
    2) Select the layer with move tool (all paths are now inside bounding box)
    3) Click on the square handle in the MIDDLE of the bounding box
    4) Click the WARP button from the upper toolbar (second from top)
    5) Select STYLE from the same upper toolbar and shape your paths
    6) Save as SVG and import back into AD
    Don't be afraid of the pixel-like strokes in Photopea - those are regular paths.
    I have nothing in common with Photopea - just helping AD community with workarounds. On another hand AD staff should bring this basic vector tool asap since this workflow sucks.
    Hope it helps.

    Huvir reacted to Erica in Vector brush tool width attributes are different than node tool width attributes for same curve...?   
    Hi,
    I'm confused about why a curve shows to different line widths depending which tool is selected. I am using a custom vector brush, whose width I have set to a 100px. If I switch to the node tool or move tool, the width of the stroke changes to 24px. Why don't all tools display the same width for the same curve? I can imagine this would get confusing when deciding to edit the width of an existing stroke -- not sure whether to edit it in the vector brush properties menu or the context menu for node or move tool...? Why would the same stroke show having different widths, depending on which tool you are in?
    Any helpful explanation would be much appreciated, as well as where one should change the width so as not to have problems or for easiest/best workflow.
    Thanks,
    Erica
