Symmetry and mirror painting options missing

Recommended Posts


I'd like to make symmetrical patterns on Affinity Designer but when I select the Vector brush tool the 'Symmetry' and 'Mirror' options don't appear on the context menu. They do, however, appear on the online tutorial video Affinity Designer - Symmetry and mirror painting. 

I've also noticed that I don't have the standard brush tool, instead the Tools panel only has the Vector brush tool. 

Have the symmetry and mirror painting options been removed, along with the standard brush tool?
