Simple Divide test -> Result too many points. Why?

Recommended Posts

I have three circle. I want to make a simple shield shape with the divide function. The result too many points on the top os the shield. Why? It is a basic task. I think it is not normal result!!! I work with the Designer since a week. This problem is very big for me. There is not "Illustrator shape builder" same function -> OK. But this feature does not work either!?

Hm, not sure how you built that, but if I take three circles like that and divide them, it looks "ok-ish". A few points too much on the left.
Maybe a quick workaround, if you only need the shield, use Geometry -> Intersect. It worked better for me ...

I gave up using Designer for hobby use - a "professional" vector drawing program without actual vector features. Customers waiting for five years in vain is more than any company can ask for.

Maybe if Affinity Designer 2.0 gets real and advanced vector features I can it use. Until then... I am a customer, a potential upgrader and an active observer with an opinion. Currently I am slowly finishing a project I started in Designer.

Hello! Thank you for your idea! I know the intersect is work better, but if I use this I lose the other lines. I like this program, but i would like the program not to be about always looking for secondary solutions. On the other side, it has been working well since twenty years. These basic operations are the foundations of everything. They must operate safely and invisibly.

Hi gyalogosdesign,

The Divide operation is something we're aware off and is being looked into. I'll get your comments passed on to development. Thanks for letting us know.

Thank You!

Same here. It's a real bummer because I want to replace AI with this app so bad. But until this is addressed, I can't… It's a deal breaker for the type of work I do right now 😓

It seems this has been an issue for a while, so I'm really hoping it's towards the top of the queue… 😉

I have been practicing for 2-3 weeks. There are good tools in it. But it's really very different from illustrator. I try to practice with him a lot. Once I lose my job, I won’t be able to just buy this. I want to be ready by then. I look forward to updates. :-)
