  1. Hey guys, Snapping is either very difficult to use and I gon't really get it, or it's not the best, either way, for me personally is a bit useless. I almost never get the snapping right. Maybe spend a bit more time on that for the upcoming version, that would be great. Cheers, Chris
  2. Hi, I am new to Designer so this might be an obvious question. However, I've done a lot of searching and haven't found the answer anywhere. I am drawing and animating a cartoon vine with lots of little branches off the main stem. I want to move nodes on the main stem around and have the branches follow while staying aligned to the nodes of the main stem. First, I know that there is no way to join curves that branch, so I can't create a single curve for my stem and branches. I can use snapping to align the nodes with each other, but then each time I move one, the other n
  3. Hey there, I may seem like a complete newbie when it comes to this, because I am. I'm trying to use the selection brush tool but it doesn't seem to work. With the magnetize button on, It doesn't Snap to the Borders or edges of my work. Please, HELP!
  4. Hey Im using Affinity Photo and I'm doing some pixel art. I'm using a brush that is 8x8 pixels. My grid spacing is 8x8 Pixels with no subdivisions. I was wondering if there is a way snap to grid but have the brush jump from grid square to grid square. So now I want the bursh just to snap to each indidvidual 8x8 grid space so every time i click its going to fill an 8X8 square within the bounderies of the grid. So my 8x8 brush always lines up with the grid. If i hold down shift and click on three points I want it to comes out like the image on the left. But right
  5. Hello. I'm using Affinity Designer version 1.2.1 After spending some time playing with AD Trial (minutes in fact), like most people I was blown away by many of it's strengths, and I've quickly purchased AD. Without wasting time, I decided to use it to do a real job. But... I quickly realized that snapping is too buggy to be used, which made me regret a little bit to be a AD early adopter. And now I'm very worried because, from many posts on the forum, it looks like AD team is not aware of this, and possibly is not working on it. I was thinking to make a video to explain this in detail, bu
  6. Hello, I have received a temporary solution, but I think that without this temporary solution this function should be present! Will this lack be solved? And if so ... within what timeframe? Regards, Jan-Willem See the discussion that I open elsewhere on the forum:
  7. Hello everyone....I have noticed that when selecting in Affinity Photo, unlike other programs that I have used, I cannot tell whether the selection has snapped to the very edge of the frame... most other programs the jagged moving line, indicating the edge of the selection, snaps to the edge of the frame and you see this moving line all around. For example if I select the sky, say the top half of a photo... in Affinity I simply see one moving line through the centre of the image, in other programs I would see an entire box... the line through the centre of the image and one along the
  8. Apple Pages give haptic feedback when an image or object is snapping, this would be a nice feature for Affinity Designer and Photo.
  9. Hello all, How can I snapping a guideline to an node in to a curve? I have searched everywhere in the program, but can not find it anywhere .... Is still an essential function. I work with Affinity Designer 1.6.1. Regards, Jan-Willem
  10. Basically what title says - if there's many objects and snapping is enabled for anchors/boundaries then moving any object is very laggy. I get that calculations for all those snap points must be done and that takes power, but some optimization in this area is necessary, as I never experineced such behavior in other vector drawing apps. Also I find snapping dialog and it's options too messy - why not stick just with objects and page/layout? Or at least give us option for easy switch between presets
  11. Hi. I am struggling in something that whenever I try to make something, I don't get to use the smartness of Affinity Designer. It doesn't show me the automated height, length and angle thing. Like in the below screenshot, I am trying make something with the pen tool but then affinity designer is not showing the right height I should make so that it matches the previously drawn side on the other half (or I say follow the symmetry). How do I make a symmetrical vectors? Screenshot: P.S.: I am trying to learn things and if you think
  12. I tried many settings under snap settings and if snap to grid is enabled, it allways is same snapping - it snap to between grid points and on the points and it doesn't matter if all settings except snap to grid is turned off or on. How to make snap in to only points?
  13. Hello! Is it possible to snapping the bezier handles to shapes in Affinity Designer? Thanks! wave.afdesign
  14. Please, add curve handles snapping. Isn't it possible? Just like snapping nodes or anything. I don't see why all elements that are sensitive for snapping couldn't work for whatever we drag and move. But that's just my point of view..) Love
  15. Windows 10, x64 With "snap to whole pixels" option turned on: 1. Create a rectangle, select it, press and hold ALT and drag the cursor to copy the rectangle RESULT: new rectangle does not snap to whole pixels EXPECTED: new rectangle should snap to whole pixels. 2. Create a rectangle, select it, press ALT, release it and keep dragging the cursor to copy the rectangle RESULT: new rectangle snaps to whole pixels. EXPECTED: the same Shouldn't items that are created by ALT-drag snap to pixels? I think that they should.
  16. Hi guys, I found a bug that involves snapping. Snapping two objects that are inside different layer groups don't snap. Either they are in the same layer group, or they are not part of a layer group, in order to be able to snap between one another. I also made a small example Cheers, Chris SNAP-TEST.afdesign
  17. I want to be able to snap control handles to any object or to the grid. It would be great, if those control handles act the same as every other object when it comes to snapping. That way, I could draw very precise curves, because I can simply lay out helping objects to define spaces and specific angles to snap to with the frontal handles of a node. See the screenshot. It would be nice if that blue control handle of the selected node would snap to the red rectangle.
  18. Hi, It's the first time I use Affinity Photo and I try to keep my cropping exactly inside the document borders, but despite the Snapping function activated it doesn't snap. Procedure I used: Resize a document to 1200 px width and want to crop 627 px height (Facebook post image size). The crop tool is covering the whole width of the document like supposed to and I move down with the crop, but can hardly stay in the proper position. What is the best setting for the Snapping in this case? What do I do wrong? Regards & Thanks, Dav
  19. Hello guys! I want to align an object or objects (be shapes, symbols, etc) along a path. Something like dragging my object over a curve and have it snap on it on the object's active anchor point, or the closest point in the bounding box. But I can't figure it out. Is this even possible? I tried with "snap to object geometry" but it doesn't do what I want to achieve, or I can't find a way to make it happen. Any suggestions? Many thanks!
  20. Can you add the ability to snap objects while using a OPT+CMD? It would speed up things if snapping was engaged with different keystrokes combos.
  21. I'm trying to create a SVG file, and I'm using basic vector shapes, then subtracting, dividing, making compound objects, then converting to curves etc etc. Basically I'm trying to use the least amount of nodes as possible, and keep it as clean as possible, with no overlapping nodes, vectors clashing etc. So I've been selecting vectors, copying them to the side to then alter them by using all of the operations commands, when I have the shape I want, when I go to snap this shape back to the original postion (as I have copied and moved it previously), there is no snapping function. It's as if
  22. Hello everyone, I have created several symbols in my AD document so I can test different color schemes in UI mockups. However I noticed that when I drag them into the canvas/artboard they do not snap to the pixels grid, becoming very fuzzy. Only if I release them and then start dragging again they will then start to snap to objects and moving pixel by pixel. It would be cool if they snapped to the pixels grid as soon as they are dragged onto the canvas so I can make quick drag and drop without having to realign them later. The three pixel alignment toggles at the top bar are on.
  23. Hi, I'm new to using Affinity Photo. I've been using PS up until now and I've always wanted to give this a try. What I'm trying to do is have my pixel tool snap to a grid and color that entire pixel to create an upscaled version of pixel art. for example my grid is divided into 32 pixel boxes, my pixel brush is set to 32 pixels but I want it to snap to the boxes Thanks!
  24. Hi, I am new to Affinity Designer and Low Poly Art so please excuse the question. I have searched around and not found many answers to my issue. I can't seem to find a way to get perfect alignment of nodes of a triangle to another node on a different object and sometimes snaps along the curve. This is causing tiny hairline gaps which appear as white lines. Is there a perfect way to align one node to another node on a separate object? I have uploaded a sample of the issue and also a separate image showing that I need the two yellow nodes to perfec
  25. Hi all. I was perplexed when I drew half a logo, snapping all of its right-side line ends to a vertical guideline; then mirrored it horizontally and expected the new half to line up correctly. It didn't. The centerline nodes of the two halves were offset horizontally by a tiny amount, so after I'd combined the shapes and tried to delete the redundant (overlapping) nodes down the center (along the guideline), the geometry was messed up (no longer symmetrical). I attached a screen grab of the apparent bug in action. The node snaps to a phantom vertical line to the right of the guideline.
