Add node control to node with only one node control - but without changing the existing one

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

first time after more than 5 years of affinity designer, I need to ask something which would be so helpful to know.

 

The title basically says it already, I have a node which, for whatever reason only has a node control on only one side, now I want to smoothen the curve on the other side of the node also and I could use the bezier or smart option, but that also does change the existing node control and I have to adjust it again. Not only a little extra work, but also accuracy won't be as good as before, because it was a perfect circle radius for example.

 

Is there a workaround or hidden feature I don't know?

 

Thanks and all the best!

Not sure if this is what you want to do but choose the Node tool and just push that one section once the ~ thing appears under the tool.

If you hold down the right mouse button and left-click the node, the missing handle will appear.
You can make a copy of the object before operating and then find the exact curve on the other side.

That is it! Additionally the mode needs to be set to "pen mode", which I hadn't, it was on smart.

Thanks so much guys! That will make Affinity Designer even better!
