  1. Hi Serif, it looks like the issue I reported back in March was fixed just partially. The same issue occurs when trying to zoom when using the Mesh Warp Tool - see the screencast below. Thanks for a fix in advance.
  2. Hi there, When you're adjusting a curve with the node handles, Is there any way to a) make the opposite handle follow your adjustment as exact mirror image – i.e., so the two sides of a curve are perfectly symmetrical? and b) have the handles themselves snap to grid? So that the curve can be repeated perfectly, on another node? I'm imagining this could be invoked with Control or Command Thanks!
  3. Another usability issue - a usability classic - objects look too similar. In a complex drawing this really is annoying and confusing. Node handles look almost exactly like smooth nodes. When you are looking at many nodes it just starts to blur together and I have made many erroneous clicks due to the visual similarity. Changing handler size in preferences is no fix. Could you please adjust the colour of the nodes or make some other change to the handles so they stand out? I think you have to choose another color - and if could be personalized it would be perfect. Extreme example
  4. I much prefer Affinity's pen tool and ability to quickly add and delete nodes and bend existing strokes as I trace over things to what illustrator offers. that said... Is there a way to pull in one of the two handles of a node to the center of the node so the stroke on that side makes a hard point and the other side of the node still has a handle that can be manipulated? Basically i want to be able to create a hard stop of a stroke at a node point and then bend and curve the stroke after that hard stop. In Illustrator, I could just grab one of the handles and pull it in to the node and it
  5. As I'm still unable to add screen shots to forum posts I have to do this as a link to an image on Google Drive. I hope it works. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1aABcWxnxTHtgUFO7z6o-MmPuWg9LbsOK/view?usp=sharing That screen shot shows the aftermath of the following steps: With an image in the clipboard (a screen shot): 1. Draw a frame with the Picture Frame tool. 2. With the frame selected, right-click and select Paste as Content The screen shot now appears within the picture frame. But there's something missing. There should be a second outer handle at the lower-rig
  6. 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
  7. So, the first hangup of working in 1.7, you can't snip off half of the Bezier curve. It deletes both handles. So ppl are gonna have to learn how to approximate the middle of the curve and build that way. I dont know if this was an unintentional change, but if it was made intentionally, It's not really ideal. Thoughts?
  8. My first question here! :-) Love the paths! Just a first thing that I don't get to find (maybe not implemented yet?) I know that I can press SHIFT to force Horizontal, Vertical, 45 degrees, when drawing. OK. But, how to force to that angles H/V/45 to some existing handles? (previously created, I mean) In Illustrator/Photoshop we press SHIFT. But Affinity uses that key to maintain existing angle (a fantastic utility, I love it). Thanks!
  9. I need perfectly symmetrical curves for a water symbol. How can I do this? I can snap the nodes to the grid and whatever else. But I can’t figure out a way to make the node handles snap. Help please. Thanks. C3559A0F-37E3-4429-B562-9CE51182E91C.MOV
  10. Hi, I'm working a lot with the pen tool to draw smooth curves or straight curves, but I find myself a lot of times wanting to make one handle in a 90 degrees straight angle (no curve) leaving the other side smooth (curved). Look at the video of a simplified situation I have almost dayly here. As you can see there's no way (at least I know rightnow) to make one side of the curve 90degrees straight. Just to be complete: I know about boolean operators and masks, but boolean operators unfortunately result in a lot of junk anchors at the current version of Publisher and change the way the cu
  11. Hey everyone! Do you know if there is a way in Affinity Designer to mirror the rotation of handles that are not aligned by 180° to each other? I also attached an image to illustrate this (I've got H1 and H2 and want to place H1 to H1 new): (EDIT: In the image, the distance from the node to H2 and from the node to H1 new are different. It should be the same, though. Using shift + dragging the handle will snap it to the same distance, but also force it to snap back to 0°) Also, when I make changes to a node's handles (N1 in the followi
  12. When I rotate the view 90 degrees, the transform cursor on objects shows up swapped: horizontal for vertical cursors: Thanks for all you do!
  13. Hello! Is it possible to snapping the bezier handles to shapes in Affinity Designer? Thanks! wave.afdesign
  14. I teach a monthly class using a cutting machine so I am always on the look out for free SVG cutting files I can use. I have found that often these files have errors in them and need to be edited before they cut well. One common problem is double lines. This month's project had several score (dashed) lines duplicated which resulted in the paper cutting clear through when I did my test. In trying to delete the extra lines, I was having a terrible time clicking on the actual node itself and not its handle. No matter how hard I tried, I always seemed to grab the handle. Is there a way to tur
  15. Hi, I'm going from AI to Designer. In Illustrator you press SHIFT to get 100% horizontal & vertical handels when dragging . Is this possible in Designer? Thnx for the help. Olaf
  16. Hello, one thing has been on my mind lately. Designer would be the supreme vector program in the marketplace if it would take on a few features from the font creation softwares: 1. If user wishes, multiple handles from multiple nodes are selectable and movable without moving the unselected node(s): 2. Handles could be moved by the user with arrow keys, just as selected nodes are movable now: 3. There is an option that user can move a node (which has handles) but the position of the handles does not move: These things
  17. Hi, I am a recent convert to AD and I have some questions. I come from Illustrator, so I have some workflow questions. I really like the intuitive way the pen tool works and this was the main reason for using AD. However I have some questions regarding the editing of nodes and handles. 1. Is their a possibilty to align different nodes (averaging) like in Illustrator? I find this quite a useful option and would love to use it in AD 2. When I draw with the pen, I can use shift to constrain angles, but after I have drawn a shape I have not found a way to constrain it to these angl
  18. If I draw or select a shape, its handles and bounding box are active as long as it's selected. Okay so far. But when I elect to add a Layer Effect, the handles and bounding box should be temporarily hidden, as they can obscure the very effects I'm carefully applying. I realize that, unlike Photoshop, AD allows me to edit/deselect a shape even while the Layer Effects window is in the foreground. It's not really a modal window! So what's the solution? Well, a compromise might be to hide the handles and bounding box, when the Layer Effects window is present, unless my cursor explicitly moves
  19. Hi there, Request for better visual contrast between Smooth Nodes and their Control Handles. Blue Circles, all! Because the Control Handles are only distinguishable by being a bit smaller, when you've selected a bunch of nodes, it can be a real visual challenge to sort them out. It's not a big deal if you're mostly drawing straight lines. But when you draw complex, organic shapes (like sketching in vectors with a stylus), you get long lines full of nodes, and when you select them, it looks like a string of blue Christmas lights! (<—Click attached JPG of the same path: T
  20. 1. Is there any way to constrain the movement of the handles, (e.g. 45°) when editing the nodes? 2. Is there anyway to select different curves by dragging the tool instead of clicking on each curve when using the node tool? Thanks for the help
  21. Steps to recreate Open a new image in Designer Add a rounded rectangle Zoom to 3000% (or any amount very different to the other view) Open a new view Zoom to 100% (you must set the zoom level) Select the rounded rectangle in the original view with the Node Tool Corner radius handle is very large and other handles are missing (see attached) Setting the zoom level in the original view corrects the problem.
  22. I have a group of masked adjustment layers. When I try to move the hole group to position it, the borders of the group don't represent the borders of the sum of the masks inside the group. In fact the handles are far outside the image and the group "area" is very small. (see attached sample)group borders.afphoto
  23. Would be great to have handles snapping to grid and guides.
  24. Hi, 1. I think it is crucial to have the possibility to align node handles in 45 degree steps AFTER they are created. Preferably with a keystroke like alt-shift or something like that, of course. So far it is only possible to so WHILE creating the nodes. 2. I would love to to be able to change both node handles of a curve at the same time in order to keep them equal. So far I just can make them equally one after the other. Thanks and best
  25. Hi all, I'm new to AD: I was looking though one of the tuition videos and I see that the red handles appear about a third of the way up the point of the star. However, when I tried to do the same thing, I only get the handles at the base of the point -please see the attached screenshots: Is there a way of adjusting settings? Thanks in advance, Kevin
