Hi, when trying to join 2 or more curves with node tool, the handles get crazy and one of the connected nodes seems always positioned to the upper left corner, leading to ugly connection of curves, depending on where the curves are positioned on the canvas. other strange observation: if you have a note selected, and click on another neighboring node, the handle does not switch to the newly selected. You need to switch to a different unrelated node to get the handle activated. FullSizeRender.MOV
Hi, What is the typical workflow to join a bunch of lines you've drawn with the Pencil tool together to form 1 line? (this is on Affinity Designer 2 on iPad) The use case is I draw some hair on a character using the Pencil tool and have 30 curves created as separate vector layers. I'd like to be able to select those 30 layers and combine them into 1 line, as if I drew the whole thing without lifting the pencil. Here's what I tried that didn't work: 1. Use the Add objects together Boolean button (all the lines just disappeared when I clicked the Add button) 2. Select "Merge Selections" from the layers panel (nothing happened, i.e. nothing "merged", the lines were still separate layers and not connected) 3. Click the Close Node button (this created all kinds of new crazy lines, as I think it connects line ends to line starts, which is not going to work for me because the lines are facing various directions). I also tried overlapping a node with the nearest node so it turned yellow, THEN clicked Close Node, but that didn't work either (it still drew a long connecting line to some other node). 4. Click the Join Node button (This didn't work. I think the cause is some of the nodes have long handle bars on them, and thus when the application makes connections it make them crazy spiked - not a simple short line between two nodes like I need). Basically what I'm looking for is if 2 nodes are a few pixels apart, join them together with the shortest distance possible (not some crazy long line across the page or some huge spike of a curve). And I'd like to do this quickly if possible. If the answer is I have to correct all the handle bars of all the nodes one by one, that would take too long to be practical. Thanks
