Hello Affinity team,

Here is the feature request to do easy feathering. Usually, in Xara Designer, I put a picture in a vector object and use feathering to smooth edges of the object. As an example:

No feather:



With feather:



Feathering is done as simple as dragging a slider to the desired number of pixels to smooth the edges.

I wonder, if such functionality is possible to implement for the Layer effects?

If yes, then when it's expected? If no, then why and how to achieve the same effect now in Affinity Designer?

In APublisher draw Shape (vector object), make copy, bottom shape Convert to Picture Frame and Put picture, top Shape set Stroke (Fill none), fx function Gaussian Blur, Layer blend mode Erase.

In ADesigner this will also be possible, but must be replaced by Convert to Picture Frame using Layer/Shape Clipping.
