  1. Hi there, I'm new to the forum and hope that everyone is doing well. I have a question in regards to dynamic guides in Affinity Designer. As I looked around on YouTube searching for a guide on how to create vector brushes in Affinity Designer I came across the following tutorial: After a straight line is created with the pen tool, at the 1:35 mark it shows nodes being added with the node tool and you can see pixel measurement displayed of how far apart consecutive new node is from the existing nodes. I'm using the latest version of Affinity Designer for Windows and snapping is working but no measurement gets displayed. Only when I place the nodes on the line first, then select one with the node tool and drag any of them on the line does the measurement display. But according to the video this should also happen when you just hover the mouse over the line with the node tool selected prior to placing a node. What am I missing? Thanks in advance, Tom
  2. Is this somehow elegantly possible? To distribute selected objects or nodes with an adjustable growth ratio instead of equal distances between them? Of course we can use numerical positioning of single objects or construct special geometries to orientate ourselves, but do we have a more simple or direct solution, I don't know yet? If not, then please see this as a suggestion: It could be a small tool with a slider that we can use to define the growth ratio. And it could also be part of an extended power duplicate. The ideal solution, and a bit different, would probably be something more similar to the blending/morphing tool found in other vector apps. The progressive distance change would just be a part of such a tool.
  3. Hi, Is there a way to get the exact measurement distance between two nodes on the object in Affinity Designer? Not width not height. In this example the triangle have a rotation. attached the capture. Regards.
  4. Hello, I would like to know the position (in %) of objects. For example if I have a dot at the center of my canvas, it would like to know that it is 50% from left, 50% from top. Is there a way to do this without having to do a cross-multiplication in pixels? Best
  5. Hi guys, First of all - big thank you for: IDML support, New Document dialog, Preflight Check and Smart Objects. Brilliant, brilliant things. Now for the things that need to be updated or changes or fixed: Distance between objects: I noticed you made a little change to the displaying the distance between objects. However many times it is still cover by the top handling line and the numbers cannot be seen. And also - since this update I am unable to see the distance between any two objects next to each other. For example - I have a text box, under which is a picture frame, then another text box, line divider and another text box. And when moving the top text box, instead of showing the distance between that box and the picture frame, it shows the distance to the next text box. Which doesn't make sense to me. I absolutely need to be able to see the distance while moving the certain elements. (under snapping I have everything enabled for all the layers - except for Force Pixel Alignment). Am I missing something here? On all the screenshots you can see the problem related to the objects' distances. On two screenshots you also see the problem with the distance number not fully visible. What would help here would be either the numbers nex to the line and not directly on it. Or - which is a better solution I think - displying the number horizontaly next to the line.
  6. Hi, this might be a silly question but I was wondering if there was a way to position a group of objects closer or further away from a central anchor point without changing the size like you would by holding ⌘ and scaling from the center except without actually changing the scale. For the image below, I would like to move all the inner spokes of the wheel inwards without changing their size. I realize I can do this manually one by one but is there a way to do them all at once?
  7. Hey guys, When snapping is on, when you move an object, the distances between that speicifc object and the object around it appear. The problem is that if two object are too close, the distance is hidden by one of its handlers. Maybe move it a bit to the left or right so they don't overlap? I attached a screenshot to show what I mean. Thank you
  8. Hey guys, When viewing the distance between objects, on dark backgrounds the distance text is barely visible. I literally can't read it at all. I posted a screenshot. Thanks
  9. Hi guys, There's an option to hold ctrl and see the distance between an object and other objects, with the first object selected. Can I disable this option? I use it, it's very useful, but not always, and it's sometimes annoying to press Ctrl for something else and see lots and lots of arrow/lines and distances, it's distracting. Thank you, Chris
  10. Hi well i upload the gif when you copy element with ALT+drag and then copy with CRTL+J the copy doesn´t take the last element distance is a weird function it takes.
  11. The smart snapping / guides are really coming along! Any chance we can get distance functionality from other shapes as well? I added a gif demonstrating the functionality.
  12. Hi Folks, Me again.... After a little more help again please if you would be so kind. So, have a look at the file I have attached. Look to theft and you will see an upper and lower wing. I need the lower wing curve at the furthest left tip to match the curve of the upper wing, making it more symmetrical. Also, how do i make sure that the distance between the two wings (Upper and lower) is that same distance across the full length of the wing again ensuring symmetry. Hope that makes sense and someone can help. Thanks guys Mark Door Design 2.afdesign
  13. I’m sorry that I always bring Fireworks as comparison but its workflow was/is just so convenient. Here is another one: When you had guides shown and the default selection tool (V) selected, pressing the Shift key showed the distance between those guides between which the cursor was placed. I’d love to see that in AD, too.
