UX / UI Improvements (Gradient / Splash Screen and Strokes)

Recommended Posts

On thing that I lke the most of using Affinity Designer is the Gradient Tool. 

Is by far one of the most satisfying tool to use, However, I think one minor change on it's behavior could greatly improve the workflow of using the tool.

The gradient tool don't suport the color picker tool. 

That's very anoying when coloring, because some times I want to pick a color from a place and this reset the Gradient Tool. 




Other minor changes would be related to the Splash Screen.

Why not have a open Document here too? 
And make the open Document or recent documents listed here, also having bigger buttons as well.



Finally my last suggestion would be having a option to turn "Scale with object" default.

You can Alt+click and it'll pick up the colour (but not in any part of the screen, as the colour picker, it'll be able to get colour of objects or the white of a page's background).

+1 for "scale with object" by default.
