  1. Hi, yes, yet another "how to join 2 nodes post", but I've been in struggle for two days now, I'm creating a font and will have a lot of this places with 2 points together but with different bezier points (see image), I need really clean vector with 1 point instead of 2. When moving 1 point to second one, it highlights in yellow color and snaps to it, I looks like YAAYYY it converted into 1 point???? NO, it's still 2 points just hanging in the same coordinates Selecting 2 points and clicking "Join curves" "Close curves" nothing is happening. "Smooth curve" is great feature, but not great for me in this situation, as shape very much changes How to really create 1 point from 2? without touching the bezier handles and doing anything with hands again (it will ruin the original shape) P.S. Also, why point sometimes have square markers and sometimes round markers? (like in attachment)
  2. Hi, I want to join curves of this leaf's veins together in a single shape. I want it to look like this: But when I click "Join curves", I get this: What's the catch? I'm sure it's a trivial thing, but wherever I searched for an answer or tried messing around in AD, nothing has brought results. Please help.
  3. I have huge problems when working with shapes, how to open them / break them, how to join curves, how to close curves. It always end up in a mess. Is there a GOOD tutorial explaining this? I have looked around, and this very basic very important topic hasn't really given me answers. Especially the 'break curve' function is a major headache. I can click a node where I want the curve split, click the 'Break Curve' button in the Action panel, and nothing happens. The curve is as whole as it was before I started. This is really driving me nuts. Also, is there a way to toggle handles on off. When I want to move a node, I almost always end up grabbing a handle instead of the node, unless I am zoomed in really much. I hope there is someone out there who can help me out. Thank you!
  4. In this tutorial I'm gonna show you how to draw a simple paper clip in Affinity designer. In the first step we will draw the single paper clip as a curve and will use the actions break curve and join curve. With the pen tool we will extend the curve so that it looks like a real paper clip. In the second step (8:18) we will link two paper clips together. Therefor we will use the function expand stroke and the operations devide and add. In the third step we will use a rectangle as a clipping mask to create the drawing for the closed paper clip brush (12:38). At 16:12 I'll show you how to export the paper clip drawings as transparent png files. Creating different brushes in AD and AP will been shown at 18:05. https://youtu.be/Iaq7lmSsVoA
  5. I don't know if this should be a question or a bug. This is a small portion of a large drawing. I have 4 shapes, all arcs created by breaking apart circles. The goal is to combine these into a hotdog shape with a closed path. I had the "Snap to selected curves" on. In the attached Test 31 file I selected all 4 shape layers using the layers panel, then grabbed the upper left node that is repeated on two of the shapes wiggled it to make sure it snapped to the node underneath it. Drew a marque around these two nodes to select them. Then clicked on the Join Curves operation. The 4 shape layers were combined to one. Question 1 How do I know if all 4 sets of connecting nodes have been joined? So that this is a closed path. There's only one red node showing and only one shape remaining. To verify it is a closed path, using the Node tool I selected the 10 visible nodes of the shape using a shift click selection on each. Don't use a ctrl A or a marquee for this test. Then I grabbed one node and drug it. As you can see two nodes didn't join. And one is the upper left node that I had made sure was snapped to the node below it. It is connected but had left a duplicate node, looks like a Close Curve command was used. So out of 8 nodes in 4 sets it looks like: 2 sets were joined, the 2 nodes in each set becoming 1 1 set was combined using a Close Curve that I didn't click, the 2 nodes in the set were joined by a path. 1 set was not joined I really figured only the 1 set selected would be operated upon by the Join command. That's all I wanted at this point. Question 2 thru 4 Why did it even attempt to join nodes that were not selected? Is this a bug or is it supposed to operate on unselected nodes? If this is by design how do we tell AD not to join nodes that we don't want joined? Question 5 Why the inconsistency? I assume the node set that was not joined probably the nodes were not snapped to each other. But the set that I am sure were snapped had a Close done on them not the Join operation I selected. When I have repeated this test using the same file sometimes the two sets that didn't Join swap but I always get the same, 2 joined, 1 closed, and 1 open. Done in AD Beta 1.3.5.3 Test 31.afdesign
