  1. Hi, I would like to align (snap) to objects that have different angles. Basically I have a geometric figure (a triangle) and I would like to add a rectangle to its border, but I'm not able to match the angles. Any idea ? Thank you for your help
  2. Hello, Is there a possible way on the future release, there will be a Snapping option in the Corner tool maybe with +Ctrl or +Shift button, so the node will be meet up in the center of the corner (Pic.1) instead of just dragging it way around freely (Pic.2). So whatever the mesh looks like, with the snapping option, the corner tool will make a nice precise circle on the edge of the mesh.
  3. Hello everyone, I'm new to Affinity Designer and I hope someone can solve my problem: I have to keep a Corporate Design which says that rectangles must have an angle of 15° on two sites (shown in annex). How can I adjust the angle on forms with the knot tool? As far as I tried it I can only adjust the corners freely, but not with an explicit angle on the selected corner. Thank you for any advice. Greetings LiberalDesigner
  4. Hey, I’m experiencing some problems with angle’s values for circular and ring shapes while I was making a pie chart. When I enter, for exemple, 90° as the end angle, it turn in another angle. See the video attached. It seems like it happens when the shape is a duplicated one. Am I the only one who has this ? 686B0CCD-2B48-4237-86D8-25443954C8D5.MOV
  5. I'd like to suggest you to create a simple method to connect the C point perpendicular to the AB segment. If you need some inspiration Coreldraw has a pretty decent way to do that - direct and intuitive. BTW, measuring tools would be great too.
  6. Hi, Is there a way to make bezier handles snap to 45 or 90 degrees? Most apps allow for this by holding down shift, but shift behaved differently in Affinity Designer, snapping to the existing curve. The only workaround i've found so far is to use the pen tool to redraw the bezier curve by clicking and dragging on the same point while holding shift. Is there another way to do this? Thanks.

    Tilt and Angle Control

    I've been trying to recreate a simple pencil brush which would utilize the Apple Pencil. I got everything already set up: based on a round brush made a nice repetitive high contrast rough paper texture for the brush texture (works wonderfully) stylus tilt controlling: the diameter of the brush (having it orthogonal to the screen produces a sharp trace, whereas tilting it makes the diameter bigger at a certain threshold) shape (following the same curve as the brush diameter; when non-tilted, it produces a nice round shape, tilting the pen produces a narrow/elliptical trace, again, when it goes over a certain threshold) stylus angle controlling: brush rotation (when the stylus is tilted and as it produces a narrower trace, it should rotate with the angle of the stylus) stylus pressure controlling: the hardness of the brush (if you're shading, pressing it gently will produce a nice subtle narrow trace; as you press it harder, the trace becomes more pronounced) Now, the problem I've been having is that Affinity Photo for iPad is interpreting the stylus input controls differently than expected. Let's go over the tilt control first. How the tilt control should work: having the stylus orthogonal to the screen should read value = 0% tilting the stylus down in any direction (any angle) should increase value > 0% having the stylus almost parallel to the screen should read value = 100% How the tilt control works now: having the stylus orthogonal to the screen reads value = 50% tilting the stylus down to bottom part of the screen (parallel to it) reads value = 100% tilting the stylus to the left or right part of the screen (parallel to it) reads value = 50% tilting the stylus to the top part of the screen (parallel to it) reads value = 100% Now let's go over the angle control of the stylus. How the angle control should work (controlling the rotation which I think goes from 0-50%?): having the stylus tilted to the right part of the screen should read value = 0% (which is 0°) having the stylus tilted to the bottom part of the screen should read value = 12.5% (which is 90°) having the stylus tilted to the left part of the screen should read value = 25% (which is 180°) having the stylus tilted to the top part of the screen should read value = 37.5% (which is 270°) The way how the angle is read in the current implementation is hard to describe, I'll try to make a video or an output it produces. But it definitely doesn't map the degrees of direction the stylus is tilted to the brush rotation.
  8. Is there a way to draw triangles with a precise set of angles in Affinity Designer/Photo for iPad. For example, suppose I want a triangle with a top corner angle of 75°. How would I create that triangle to spec? Sorry if I’m overlooking something simple. Thanks in advance for the advice. I tried to research this basic point. So far I’ve come up with nothing.
  9. Working with the pen tool, I've noticed that there is no way to snap the bezier handles to 45° and 90° angles once the node has been placed. Normally, this would be done by holding down the shift key while moving the bezier handle. In Affinity designer, this locks the handle to the angle it was last placed at. My suggestion would be to keep the current behavior, but add an alternate keyboard shortcut that will lock the bezier handles to 45° and 90° (and possibly other) angles. Could be CMD + DRAG, CMD + SHIFT + DRAG, etc.. Thanks!
  10. Hi guys, Is there a possibility to change the angle of a gradient stroke? Can the gradient fill tool be also used for strokes somehow? Cheers, Chris
  11. Try this: 1. New document. 2. Click once on the Rectangle Tool (or type "M") 3. Click the square to the right of "Fill:" in the upper left corner of the window. 4. Click on the "Gradient" tab. 5. Note there is no field to set the ANGLE. Please add that. Why? Because Illustrator has one and for good reason. Yes, you can set the angle by going outside the Gradient panel, choosing the gradient tool and then manually doing it. But if one is already working inside the Gradient tab (especially for matters of precision), it is only logical that an ANGLE setting should be in there too. Thanks!
  12. Is there a way to set the angle of a pyramid, or any other shape, rather than having to calculate that then enter dimensions?

  14. Hi. I like to have a shortcut available to reset rotation since it happened many times to me , i design mostly with my MacBook pro on the go, (thanks to your software i can even get work done on my girlfriend's base model 12 inch, god bless you guys for that.) and i rotate the screen accidentally , i'd like a fox for that. i know a bit about US so i suggest 3 ways to approach this issue: 1. Tiny Pop Up button on the side of the screen, to appear whenever the the screen is not adjusted. (this doesn't have to be on AP since thats mostly work done on photo but on the other hand, for experience consistency i would suggest that to be tried at least.) 2. pop up button available on touch bar whenever canvas is rotated. 3. keyboard shortcut. Thanks guys
  15. Would love to see some sort of "right angled" snap enabled gradient tool feature (perhaps with a modifier key). When dragging out the gradient tool often I need to drag it 90 degrees perpendicular from an edge to get a nice even gradient that isn't angled. See attached. Second image is the desired behaviour, 90 degrees perpendicular to the centre edge. Illustrator sort of handles this with a dashed line box as you drag the gradient tool but it doesn't snap. A snap would be helpful to ensure it's at 90.
  16. Hi, How can I rotate an image with specific angle? Thank you
  17. When you're drawing a shape, or already have one, it would be fantastic if there was a way to see the angle between two node points, with respect to either a horizontal or vertical axis. It would be extremely handy to make sure your shape has the same angle of slant as other parts of your design. I'm aware of the slant transform option, but this is something that would be specific to selected nodes. Thanks!
  18. howdy folks, this is a feature which i think would help mirror certain things. so with a text object, you make into a curve. seperating the letters, great. but you can angle the letters, to make them look different or curved. but what would be really cool is if you say have a word like 'HELLO', you need to angle the 'H' 'E' 'L' & 'O'. you dont need to angle the middle L since its in the center. but say you select the H & O, you can angle them, but you can NOT angle them [see 001 picture] on the inside. it just allows on the outside and the boottom/top. i have to do the same for the E and for the second L. to make the word curve to then make this [see 002 picture] so really i have to angle each letter one at a time. when i think it could be done easier it just would be cool if you could:- A - with the entire word to curves, be able to select multiple letters 2 or 3 or 4 etc, to angle from the inside points, rather than always the outside OR B - have a curved text object but allow the curve object to curve in the same way without having to do it letter by letter anyhow. if this does exist already. please do share. but if not, it would be a nice feature. also if this doesnt make sense please do contact me back ;)
  19. Hi there, it would be great if it would be possible to rotate a guideline so that it is possible to adjust an angle. In an old version of Corel Draw it was possible to rotate the guidelines by moving one endmarker of it in the ruler. (Please find the attached jpg on the bottom) This was a very easy way to freely place and adjust the guidelines. Regards Hardy
  20. How can I adjust how steep the angle of the ends of the polygon tools hexagons are? I don't know the technical term for what part of the shape I'm asking about so I'm posting a picture. I want the same steepness no matter the width/length of the polygon, I'll post a picture of what I'm trying to achieve:
  21. Hello. Can the angle of a linear gradient be changed? I have a curved line/stroke which I have applied a gradient to. The angle at which the gradient changes from one colour to another is vertical (0 deg). Can I change this angle to make it lean one way or another, perhaps by degrees? Many Thanks
  22. I posted the lack of an angle control as a bug originally, but I'm cross-posting here after getting more information: When I set the fill for an object, I use the Fill control provided in the toolbar and its dedicated tab for gradients. I would not expect to go hunting around for a separate tool for this and drag an additional effect onto an object, when fill is an intrinsic property of an object and controls are already provided for it. If the controls for a property are deemed too complicated or difficult to implement in the control panel, I would expect on-screen controls to appear when I select that property (in this case, the Fill color well) from the object's property panel or toolbar. The current design, aside from looking like it suffers from a major omission, leaves the user wondering if he's applying a separate effect to the object. I suspect this will be even more problematic if Designer offers multiple fills on the same object (which I saw in the feature roadmap). I urge Affinity to eliminate the fill control from the Tools palette and integrate its function into the Fill control on the properties toolbar that appears for an object. Not only is this much more intuitive for the user, but it allows you to enable or disable the control as appropriate for the type of object selected, and to cause it to disappear when no object is selected. As it stands, it makes no sense for the Gradient and Transparency tools to be enabled when nothing is selected. Gavin
