  1. Hey everyone, I wonder if this is a bug or a feature: Current behaviour: If I use the Rectangle Tool (M) and then switch to the Corner Tool (C), then work on one or more corners and release the mouse button, the tool automatically switches to the Node Tool (A) – is this a feature or a bug? Personally, I find this irritating and not really intelligible, because rarely I get the curve right with just one click and go. Expected behaviour: In Designer V1, the corner tool remained active after the rectangle was converted into a path object, which I would prefer. Can someone please check if it works the same for them and/or if it is a bug?
  2. Hi, I've been using AD for a long time, and I'm an AD fan. I think AD is better than most other vector design tools. But only one thing let me don't work well. When I use the [Corner Tool] to make the curve's corner round on macOS, I must bake the appearance. Otherwise, when I resize the curve, the radius does not change. Many other vector design apps support scaling the radius when resizing. I think AD could do better than them. If this comes true, I think AD will be the BEST design app. Thanks.
  3. I have instantly upgraded from AD1 to AD2 but was disenchanted to see that many of my corners in an existing document are now “broken”, meaning the corner tool allowed larger radii in AD1 than it does in AD2. Attached is a screenshot from my document in AD1 and AD2 as well as an (AD1) file containing the sample path. In AD1 the maximum radius is 1991.1px while in AD2 it only is 411.1px. For what it's worth, I'll stay with AD1 when editing documents that heavily rely on the corner tool, but I hope this issue will be resolved in upcoming AD2 updates, as I'd rather not have to use both versions concurrently. Cheers Patrick P.S. I have this issue on Windows as well as macOS. corner tool radius.afdesign
  4. Hey there, sometimes when I want to adjust many node corners (the radius of curved corners in my cases) at the same time AD tends to freeze for a few minutes before it has been able to make all changes. Is this normal behaviour? The strange thing is that it only occurs sometimes in some files. It also seems to happen more likely the longer I am working continuously on a file. Anybody else having this sort of issues? Chris
  5. Unfortunately, I am unable to repeat this using precise steps. I had been using Affinity Designer for about an hour on my MacOS High Sierra 5K iMac with 32GB RAM, mostly with FontAwesome font pack icons placed on a new document. I was using Layer > Geometry > Divide and Create/Release Compound manipulations mostly. When I then used the Corner Tool on a sharp edge on one of the parts of an icon, Designer suddenly crashed. Attached is the crash log. I relaunched Designer and tried to reproduce the crash in vain. CrashLog_March19-2021.txt
  6. For some reason, every time I try to alter the upper right side of a polygon (5+ sides) the bottom right corner gets undesirably altered by the tool, please note, this happens when I create a polygon by adding two objects: The arrow points to the corner I want to alter, but as you see, the bottom corner is being altered when I do that, all I did was to "join" a rectangle and a triangle using Layer -> Geometry -> Add. Please let me know if I did something wrong or if there's something I should take a look at.
  7. Weird thinks happens while using corner tool. Does anyone explain to me? winzord_record.mp4
  8. Hello Designer! Check out my Affinity Designer Tutorial on how to use the corner tool and corner type with lots of tips along the way. Hope this helps
  9. This is probably a simple solution, but I am trying to use the corner tool and having some issues. I know with the large circle nodes on a corner, you just need to transform the node type to a sharp corner to be able to use the corner tool. But what about the small circle node? It doesn't let me use the corner tool on it and I am not sure what to do or if there is a way to change the node type? On the image below, note that there are 2 small cirlce nodes where there should be square nodes on the corners. How can I get these to work with the corner tool?
  10. Corner types are greyed out even when nodes are selected with Corner Tool. Inorder to activate it I've to click the nodes and move them. I don't remember this in previous AD versions. Is this intentional?
  11. Hi I'm totally new to Affinity Design, so this probably me doing something wrong. I have two different square shapes that is looking similar. Somehow I cannot use the corner tool on one of the squares, nothing happens when I apply it. Can this shape be locked somehow? Best regards, Matthias
  12. Hi! I've just uploaded another tutorial on Affinity Designer. This one is about converting simple rectangles and ellipses into more complex shapes. If you like it, give it a thumbs up and leave a comment. Thanks! https://youtu.be/SeNhPOyE2kI
  13. I wonder why the corner tool is available only in AD but not in AP. Would be great to have it also in AP.
  14. Corner tool currently doesn't snap to absolute values (as in 10px instead of 10.3px etc). Holding a modifier key while using the tool to force it to do so would be wonderful. As of now, after using the corner tool I often have to manually type in a desired value for my rounded corners to get rid of decimals. Unless I missed something, in which case I apologize for a duplicate post (though I couldn't find anything similar in the forum). P.S. I have a whole list of improvement ideas for both Designer and Photo that I've collected since testing the Windows beta versions. But since you prefer to keep one idea per thread, is it still okay for me to start ~15 threads at once or would it be considered spam? ;) Thanks.
  15. Hello, I am requesting these two features 1 - The ability to scale shapes that are using corner tool without losing their actual shape. see this post for more details. 2- Having brushes fill the whole shape's stroke without a gap at the beginning. see this post for more details and thank you :)
  16. Hello Working my way through the *great* book... In the coffee shop poster/card project I played around with various things, including rescaling the finished paper cup. The shadows and gradients scaled correctly but not the bottom corners of the cup. This is because the cup bottom had been designed with the corner tool and there is no option for proportionality. I checked the basic tool video and it seemed to confirms this: the radius will always be x mm... As a result I had to modify the radius by eye on the two layers that constituted the object. Is there a better way? Thanks
  17. Hello there! I know that it is a bit annoying to ask for features existing on other apps but there is one small behaviour on Adobe Illustrator that really saves a lot of time when you get used to it (and you get used it very quickly). In Adobe Illustrator once you add corner radius to a path and apply some boolean operations you could still control the corner radius (they keep editable). In Affinity, when you add a corner radius to a path (using the corner tool) and apply some boolean operations the corner radius becomes expanded and its imposible to control de radius after that. This is especially important when designing icons and alike because you're always trying to keep a coherent look but some shapes need more roundness than others so you may try different radius and decide to change it later on when you may already apply path operations. Hope this could be also done in Affinity Designer, I really think it is time saver behaviour, well, I honestly think that any smart behaviour like this are time savers in general.
  18. I love the corner tool - awesome stuff. But as soon as I apply a boolean operation to shapes (add, subtract, intersect, divide, combine) their corners become baked and the ability to edit corners is lost. I imagine that it *might* be possible for any unaffected corners to retain their corner tool setting (i.e. existing corners with a corner tool setting applied, that are not created or changed by the boolean operation being applied). This would be a great help. Currently when ever I want to apply a boolean operation on a shape that has a corner, I first have to zero the corner, remember what it was, then reapply it after the boolean operation is applied.
  19. I love the corner tool, and the range of corner options. Is it possible to add another option for corners based on conic sections, e.g., ellipse, where the length and width of the ellipse can be adjusted? Something along the lines of the rounded corners of the iOS icon mask. It would be great if this could also be added to the rounded rectangle tool as an option for creating icons. Although Apple apply the mask to the icon, it's useful to be able to reproduce it when designing, to see how the finished icon will look. Also, an offset tool would be useful for offsetting or insetting, similar to what CAD apps can do. The expand stroke tool is one way to achieve this, although it does break the curve up into lots of smaller curves. This explains the elliptical corner curves and what I mean by insetting: http://www.designbygeometry.com/ios-icon-mask-corner-curve-study/ Thanks
