Quick shapes

Recommended Posts

As a previous user of DPX5 I was able to edit the number of points of a QS Star plus other variables. This does not appear to be available in Afinity.

Yes - all the editability is there, plus more.  I spent a lot of time on the shapes making them much more dynamic than anything in the Plus range.  We have greater customisation of Shapes, plus smart snapping points to help you craft geometrically pleasing results.

Are we sticking with the red dot system, to adjust Quickshapes, or will you return to the external bounding box sliders as seen in DP? I do prefer the external boxes, there is more separation, I like the half way markers though. The numbers in the top tool bar are a nice touch!

 

What about including grids, chequerboards and polkadots?

I'm afraid we're sticking with the dots..

 

Those sliders around the edge of the boxes in the Plus range were a UX problem for me - how do I know which slider does what?!

 

We obviously have named controls in the context toolbar too, so I would hope people will get used to how it works.

 

Unclosed shapes were, I think, also a mistake before.

 

Thanks,

The context bar control layout is an improvement after trying it for a while! However could the buttons in the context bar, glow, bounce or change border colour when selected. Something similar to the help file search results? Put this down to old age/DP ingrained knowledge.

 

Does this mean that the Plus range are going to nab/share these little gems? Is there any rivalry now between the two teams in Nottingham? :P
