Affinity Designer - scaling of drawings

Recommended Posts

Hey experienced users,

Is there a possibility to scale distances ?  e.g. I want to draw a line of 5m on a A4 size document ? 

and while I'm asking: is it possible to have measuring lines on the drawing? e.g. for that line of 5m, drawed  at scale 1/250 (20cm) but the measuring line would indicate 5m ?

Thx
Karel

You can use the Transform Studio to manually set the length of a curve, as shown here -

Unfortunately there's no such option in Affinity currently, although this has been requested previously on our forums and is something we may add in a future update!

Node Tool, select first and end node of the line (click on first, shift, click on end), and read Transform panel.
