How to Create Warped or "Enveloped" Text in Affinity Designer??

Recommended Posts

How can I create in Designer, the equivalent of the "Envelope" feature which used to exist in Serif DrawPlus?  I understand the Node tool works on shapes, but it does not seem to work on text.  Please advise.

Thanks,

AC

Hello :)

There is no Envelope/Perspective Tool in Designer like we have in DrawPlus. But Affinity Photo has Mesh Wrap & Perspective Tool (Not vector)

Thanks Arun.  That's what I thought. I don't have Photo. Really a shame because it's such a useful tool.  Should not be that hard to create.

I still use my DP & PP everyday with my Affinity Applications. Still there are some advantages in Plus Range too.

Theres countless forum requests for this, which I'd say is a standard tool, not a feature, a lot of users been screaming for this "feature" since 2015 which is something I use every day. it's so frustrating that I have to keep Illustrator cs5 open to copy and paste between to achieve. until recently I'd not really used Illustrators perspective grid but on my current ongoing project I've discovered it's really brilliant and I can copy and paste with ease between Illy and designer not so with inkscape where you have to save SVG before it crashes
