Hello dears, these weeks I tried using Affinity Designer as my drafting software for architectural drawing. It's been a pleasure until I hardly needed tangent and orthogonal snapping. AD reveals to be a very nice software to make nice looking drawings fast, but it lacks some fundamental functions which would definetly speed up architectural and other workflows. The tools I hardly suggest to add into next versions of Affinity are: Snap to tangent and orthogonal points, well all the Autocad and Rinocheros snaps would just be fantastic. Transforms based on starting and reference point (example: rotate a line using a custom pivot and a custom reference point which can be snapped during the operation); Arrays: the ability to copy things along a curve and/or in a specified direction ad certain distances (following rotation or not and to add some more coolness: with a scale variation based on a custom profile); Grid copy: same as Arrays but based on a grid. Well, measures would also be a great add for AD in the product design field, but It'd be a to much specific need probably. I'd be so great to have such facilities.
I'm trying to change the center of scaling of a layer but with no success. Changing the center of rotation is fine but Affinity doesn't seem to use this same center for scaling. I've searched the forums for a solution but to no avail. Can anyone help? :)
