Affinity Photo.

Windows 10 - 64 bit

I have to draw many lines to make a drawing.
I selected the "pen" tool with the "lines" modality and the "Add new curve to the selected object" option, which should cause all curves drawn after to end on one level.
Does not work. Each curve I draw creates a new level, and I find myself having to manually "compact" all the layers one by one.
Any suggestions?

Thanks!

I enclose an example screen.

It works in Pen mode and the other 2 mult-segment modes.

But Line mode is defined as being for single-segment lines. Possibly that is incompatible with the idea of adding on to the original curve, since that would create a multi-segment curve?

Pen mode should be fine for what you're doing, if you remember to hit Esc before starting the next segment.
