  1. Would be great to have an OFFSET PATH feature , like Illustrator has, to reduce or enlarge an object. This is particularly hand on more complex objects when trying to resize in uniform. If we have something like this for desginer please let me know. Also something like CADTOOLS would be awesome. I am create a lot of graphics that go straight to a printer, and the measurement tools that CADTOOLS have are fast and easy to add dimensions to each piece of art on a artboard. Saves alot of time typing it in, and there is not mistaking size of art for the printer. Thanks Gary
  2. First off, I love your app, I made the change from Graphic which was recently purchases from Autodesk and I was having issues with the SVG exporting properly for my CNC machine. I do a lot of woodworking for customers and for my YouTube channel. I would love to use Affinity to make plans for folks to buy but what's holding me back is the way that measurements work. I love that you have snapping and measurements but I would love to have a way to move those to a layer so I can export the image for these plans. Thanks for all that you do, Zach Manring www.southernginger.com
  3. Two related requests: 1. It would be nice to be able to read measurements using the Measurement tool without having to zoom in to 1600% all the time. 2. It would also be nice to have measurements be visible on blue objects. Sketch does this very, very well. Attached is a screeenshot of the same objects at 100% in both apps with measurements displayed using the default measurement tools (Option-hold in Sketch, CMD-hold in Affinity Designer). I recolored the background in the AD for a second screenshot to highlight that the text on measurements should probably change when the background is near the same blue as the default font color.
  4. Hi! I am new to Affinity Designer and already have searched the internet to find an answer. The Info I found is that the measurement tool was planned years ago, but nothing to measurements in the newest release. Is there any way to measure the length of a (curved) line in the newest version? I am interested in an exact measurement in physical units (mm). Thanks!
  5. Hopefully, an illustration is also worth a thousand words: For any drawing used to construct or build an actual object: furniture specs, house floor plans, fences, back splash tile design, cabinetry, etc. I've used Intaglio for years specifically because it had a line dimension feature. Thank you for Designer and Photo. Waiting impatiently for Publisher. Then I'm free of you-know-who!
  6. I'm switching from Sketch and still getting used to Affinity Designer. I wonder if there's an inspector panel that shows the dimensions & positions of the selected objects? Thanks inspector in Sketch:
  7. With the info panel visible, I select the Rectangular Marquee Tool and draw some kind of rectangle. Immediately upon releasing the mouse button (track pad in my case), the width and height values disappear immediately (revert to the "--" value, more specifically). I would expect that the values should remain in the info panel while the selection remains active. About once every ten times, the values remain, but I am at a loss as to why they should randomly work on very rare occasions.
  8. Hello, creative people! I'm a science professor (Physics and Math, mostly) and I'm working at some electronic educational materials for my students. When I found about vector graphics and AD, it was a game changer for me. I'm not by any means an artistic person, I don't draw, paint or whatever, but I use AD for science illustrations (inclines, pulleys, circuits, geometric shapes). I'm sorry if this has been asked before, but my feature request is a small detail that I find useful for science illustrations. I would like it to have a special tool for displaying measurements and some other labels. For example, if I draw an incline, to be able to show its measurements or if I have a problem with, say, a football field or a rectangle, to quickly add its measurements. And not only the (measurement) label, but also the specific arrows, like on the sidelines of the picture in the attachment. Also, should I (or any of you) have any more ideas for useful features for scientific illustrations, I'll surely come back. Thank you for your time and the great products! EDIT: I'm sorry, for some reason, the attachment doesn't display as it should. It's this picture: http://www.volleyball-rules.net/images/volleyball_court_dimensions.jpg
  9. I know how to bring up the Measurement guides by holding CMD with an object selected. However, at 100% this is fairly useless for objects near one another, as the label font is microscopic (see attached.) How can I make it so I can actually read the text without needing to zoom in to ~1200% every time? Thanks!
  10. I cannot yet find a way to size a shape exactly. Is there a transform panel or so like in Illustrator where I can type in sizes like 5" or 32 mm?
  11. Hello, I have to wonder, is there an measure tool in Affinity Photo? I'm not able to find it anywhere in the tools and this is pretty needed feature I think.
