Pencil Tool - still difficult to handle

Recommended Posts

hi there,

I'd like to share my experience with the Pencil tool, and I think this is related to a bug topic,

first,¬†I notice nice¬†improvement when you convert¬†shapes to curves. Very awesome, thanks to the team efforts¬†ūüėä

But when I need to use Pencil tool. it still doesn't work as I'd like to use.
eg. trying to close the curves, they doesn't happen so well.

then I need to always activate the sculpt mode.
however doesn't work easily (as you can see on the video).

eg. When you draw a shape, the beginning and the end of each shape drawn, adds more points, making the curve not optimised, taken even more time to fix it.

as I use affinity everyday, I come only when I see a tool that I use all the time would need to have a bit more of attention. 

for now I suggest to my students and followers to use the pen tool,
easy to close the shape and very well optimised.


SUGGESTIONS (for this topic)
Pencil tool (quick draw mode) it draws the shape (example shown at the end of the video)

Clear Shape Option (Reduces the amount of nodes created, making the shape clear to adjust)

add Keyboard Shortcuts for the Close the Curve and shortcuts to the ToolBar buttons, would be awesome as well.

Please take in consideration this topic for the next upcoming improvements

Please just make it automatically close the curve. If Use Fill is checked, it should close the curve. Why would I ever want to draw a filled shape without it being closed? 

would be nice as well, thanks for comment and support this enhancement
