  1. Is it possible to control the fill mode (i.e. choose between ‘alternate’ and ‘winding’) on iPad? If so, how do I do it? If it isn’t currently possible, perhaps this thread could be moved to the iPad Feature Requests subforum.
  2. Is there a reason the fill mode setting keeps reverting back to "Alternate (Even-Odd)" after I set it to "Winding (Non-Zero)? I've selected the entire document and then made the switch. It works for the next move I make where I overlap fills, but then seems to revert back after that and I have to re-do the setting again and again. In the absence of a serious way to fill in large spaces, I have to grab parts and drag them over top each other and "add" them with the boolean operation
  3. Is there a way to set the fill mode to winding (non-zero) permanently? It seems to switch back to Alternate (even odd) with every new document and also sometimes multiple times in the same document as I work. Thanks!
  4. While editing an old eps file I had imported into Affinity Designer, I tried to use a Boolean Subtract to convert 3 curve layers to a single Curves layer with 2 transparent holes in it. I have done this a zillion times without problems but for these 3 curves what I got instead was no transparency, something like this: It took me much too long to figure out why, but the reason is simple: by default, shapes are assigned the Alternate (Even-Odd) fill mode. For whatever reason, the shapes in the old eps file all used the Winding (Non-Zero) fill mode, which for subtractions like this one fill everything.
  5. It seems that the fill mode menu does not work. Affinity Designer / Windows 8.1 x64
  6. I would like to be able to set which one I want and not to have to keep setting it. It is nice to have the option to change it if I need to but most of the time I only want winding. In my work, I always use winding, but the default is alternative. Would it be possible to make it user definable or at least have the program remember which one I used last?
  7. It would be nice if there was an option to select Winding (Non-Zero) as the preferred fill mode, or have the program remember the last selected fill mode when creating new shapes rather than having to navigate the menu to change the fill mode for each new shape.
