  1. Would be nice if you could add the collision detection / the common tangents option for the snapping. So snapping non-polygon objects will be easier.
  2. Hello Using the snap function when working in the node tool, is there a shortcut to turn snap on and off for all options? You can override snap pressing "Alt" (macOS), but it breaks the node handles. Any other way to turn snap temporarily off - fast and easy? A global snap on/off button would be very handy.
  3. When I snap line end points to other curves, they occasionally disappear, effectively deleting the end points. This happens when invoking the node tool from within the pen tool as well as in the stand alone node tool. Here's an example: 2022-11-24 23-28-36.mp4 In this particular instance, it also happens when snaps are disable, so the cause might be elsewhere: 2022-11-24 23-31-08.mp4 I tried reproducing this in a clean file, but then it won't happen, at least not the way I tested it. Not even on 16000X zoom level.
  4. Morning, Am I missing something here, or can I not snap slices to the grid?! I have created a slice, turned snap to grid on, and now am trying to conform that slice to the grid, but it's no snappy. Pretty much all snap options are on, but I just can't snap it! Cheers Wayne
  5. Tangential snap, e.g. in Designer becomes a game of patience and the result is everything else, but not tangential. There are already a lot of snap functions but they don't help when, for example, two different circles have to be connected tangentially by a line. It would be a very helpful addition to the already existing snap functions to add tangent, quadrant and parallel snap. Finally, these belong to the basic geometric constructions. tangential_snap_00.mp4
  6. “Welcome back my friends / To the show that never ends … ” - and if you know the origin of that lyric, you're Today's Big Winnah! And now, on with the show … Question: With snapping enabled, it's a (you're gonna hate this) a ‘snap’ to drag guidelines that snap automatically to the center of one's layout. BUT: When Option-dragging the ZERO POINT from upper left of the frame to the center of the layout, there's NO automatic snapping as there is when dragging the guidelines. The Zero Point is a ‘best guess’ operation as to whether or not it's precisely centered with the guides dragged earlier. Can someone please reveal the Hidden Mystery that enables the Zero Point (center point) to SNAP to alignment with the GUIDES that snapped so nicely into place? Thankyewberrymush …
  7. I made 2 shapes and snapped them together, because I wanted to group them into one item. But as you can see in the attachment, there's a thin white (or I guess transparent) line in between. (both shapes have a fill color and the line set to transparent) Is there something I'm not doing? How can I make the line disappear? In the photo attached, the two shapes are SNAPPED together... I'd like to not have to overlap because this is something I'll be doing often (snapping+grouping) & it won't always be acceptable to just go over the edge of one shape with another. Thanks.
  8. Hi there, I am trying to do something, which probably is not possible. I am designing a simple thing with 2 circles and a line which connects both. Using the snap tool, I have set the line to start and end from the center of the circles. Now, I would like to link the 3 shapes together in a way that when I move a circle, the line stretches and follow the new circle position. Group and compound do not work for this, because they create a shape which is the result of all shapes in the compound. Is this even possible?
  9. Simply put, an option that lets you designate a layer to be prioritized for snapping to (ignoring non-prioritized shapes close to the area where you're trying to snap if there are prioritized shapes there); I imagine it as simple right-click options accessible while mousing over the layers panel: for layers that haven't been designated for snapping, it'd give the option to make them one of the layers to snap to, while for layers that have already been designated, the right-click prompt would be to no longer prioritize them for snapping. An additional button next to the general snapping on/off button would let you reset the list of layers to prioritize snapping to entirely, effectively turning it off until you redesignate a layer as a priority for snapping. This'd solve some of the issues I've had where due to several shapes being close together (for example due to shading layers on top of the layers they're shading) Designer fussed back-and-forth over which of two other shapes it'd try to snap to, completely refusing to snap to the shape I was actually trying to snap something to.
  10. Let's say I have a number of layered shapes. I want to ensure one node of shape A, at the top of the pile of shapes, is aligned to a side of shape B, near the bottom. To ensure shape B doesn't get out of alignment with other shapes, I have it grouped, or shape A is part of a compound with another shape, or some other situation where keeping both objects selected at the same time (to take advantage of the "align nodes to selected curves" snapping option) would require rearranging the layering of the shapes. In situations like this, is there a convenient way to "tell" Affinity Designer that I want to specifically snap to shape B rather than any of the other layered shapes (since the previously-mentioned "remove shape A and B from their groups, compounds, etc. so you can select both, turn off all snapping options other than the selected curves one, snap, put shapes back into their groups, compounds, etc." is rather tedious)? Being able to mark a layer to snap to would be very convenient.
  11. If I try to set point at the intersection of straight lines it's ok. But if I try to set point at the crossing of ovals (crossing change color to the yellow when I place mouse pointer on it) or other curves the snapping is not accurate. There is always a small gap between the crossing and the placement of the new point. P.S: Sorry for my English.
  12. I'm trying to snap a guide to exactly 30 cm using the ruler. Looking in the snap settings, nothing suggests itself as a means to do so Q: Is it possible to set snap settings so placing guides will snap to the ruler when visible? Q: If not, how do you approach it?
  13. Is there a way to use certain angle to snap on rotate other than every 15 degrees? only three axis can be used on Grid and Snapping Axis setting so this can't be used.
  14. Would be nice if I could snap Marquee and Crop tool to objects but only guides and the edge on canvas. This makes cropping/filling/deleting easier along object edge.
  15. I'm working in Affinity Designer and I'm having some trouble with snapping the edges of an artboard to objects, and I'm not sure that artboards are designed for what I need to do. Below, I have a logo and shapes used for x-heights. I can adjust the artboard, but I can't find a way for the artboard to snap to the objects inside of it so that I can have the artboard sized to exactly where I need.. Here are my snapping settings: Am I using artboards wrong, or is there a setting I'm not seeing? Thanks!
  16. Hello, How can I make the artboard snap to the keypoint on the grid ? Please see the video attached. Thank you, Hossein artboard-snap.mp4
  17. I am rotating this shape(both a rectangles) and I would like it to snap so that the one rectangle is exactly perpendicular to the other rectangle Affinity Snap Perpendicular.mp4
  18. Hello everyone, as an example, I couldn't get the bottom corner to align with the snap to the yellow line. What's wrong? Tried with all the snaps activated. Thank you
  19. Hi, Is there a way to snap handles in Affinity Designer? I can snap nodes and objects just fine, but when dragging a curve handle, I can't seem to find a way to snap the handle. Thanks, Joona
  20. Is there an easy way to center an image to the center of an artboard? I like to center it vertical and horizontal. I expected some aligning/snapping settings to apply. But that doesn't seem to do that. I've setup a document, type web. The image is inserted using File > Place.
  21. Hey everyone! Is there possible to increase speed of snapping? This slow appearing of snapping lines is very annoying. I use Affinity Designer latest version 1.7.3 for Windows. Thank you!
  22. edit: Affinity Designer on Desktop (Windows) /edited The objects are snapping, but with an offset in relation of the real grid. Attached image will illustrate it better. I tested with new documents it works fine, but in the current one which I'm working with, it has broke. There is someway to reset it? I'm working with multiple artboards, if it is relevant. I could find this case on the forum, Thanks
  23. Hi, I am trying to fix my portfolio, I am placing images by using the align tool and snapping. Sharing the edges of my images between each other. When I open it in PS I can see a thin line between images of "no color". Is this related to AD or to my images? Thanksa lot.
