  1. Hello, If there are multiple shapes selected, and all are divided all at once, a number of overlapped content is removed and a lot of garbage nodes are left as separate paths. I've experienced on AI too, but there we can easily select them and remove them, but in AD it becomes a headache. Can you please make selection in such a way that.. if selection started form top left / bottom left then select all shapes touching selection box, if selection started form top right / bottom right then select only shapes, fully under selection box, Something same like in Auto-cad (somebody experienced?) Please take a look on this video and see what I mean. vertics, devide tool, shape tool, pen tool, garbage nodes, paths, Affinity Designer 2_5_2019 10_40_41 PM.mp4 Affinity Designer 2_5_2019 10_44_12 PM.mp4
  2. How do I select the shape tool for cut or copy?
  3. Hi! I've been working with AD now for a little and have a few suggestions that would make at least my workflow better: Guides: it would be nice if I could rotate the guides (set the angle) I could dock the guide manager window I could group guides in the guide manager window and show/hide groups of guides Shape tool: it would be nice if you could add a (logarithmic) spiral Pixel persona: it would be nice if you could add a halftone filter and a possibility for color separation to layers (CMYK): needed for screen printing; right now I have to use other programs for these tasks which would be a real benefit if I could do it within AD Keep up the good work!
  4. One (simple?) thing I'd love to see is the ability to create a shape (rectangle, circle etc) with specified dimensions. In Illustrator, you can click with the appropriate tool and it then asks for a width/height or radius and creates it at the spot you clicked. To do the same in Designer, you have to drag out a shape and then edit its dimensions in the Transform panel which means more steps.
  5. Pie tool could be hugely improved if there was the possibility to use percentages as angle unit. As it is now, you must calculate the angle [(360/100)*percentage value] So you need a calculator at hand (boooooring, slooooower). It could be acceptable, but problem here is that a lot of percentages (specially in investigation charts) result in values with decimals, and you cannot use decimals as angle value, it gets rounded. At the end, on a pie chart the circle is not complete as the different rounded values sum are always less or more that 360º and you must adjust it by hand (to add to the long process of calculate and input values) I suggest to allow it to use decimals on the angle, and to accept or to have an specific field for percentage values. Or, as others suggested, create a good chart tool… but that is another story.
  6. I'd like to see a button in the Shape Tool that lets you make a selection from the shape, like in the top bar of the Pen Tool.
  7. I thought I'd give everyone a few samples of what can be achieved with some of our shapes. We've made the shapes available in Designer highly versatile. All of the shapes (apart from the basic Rectangle and Ellipse) can be customised, giving you a high degree of control. Certain shapes have carefully chosen snapping values for each of their control points which quickly allow you to find right angles, inline edges, mirrors, and other useful positions. You'll see what I mean when you try them out! The main reason for using our shape objects is that they remain fully editable in your document. They scale and resize with other objects, but they can maintain proportions, angles and sizes. You have the option to convert any shape to a regular curves object, but in doing so you will lose the unique dynamic properties of that shape. To kick off, the one shape I'm particularly proud of is the Cog. It may sound like quite a restrictive shape, but please look at the samples below to get an idea of the range of shapes that can be made with just the Cog. Here's the actual Designer document, so that you can see for yourself how these shapes were made with the Cog. CogSamples.afdesign
