Hi there,

having turned my back on Adobe, I'm using Affinity Designer a lot in cartography and it's really an excellent piece of software. The only thing I'm definitively missing (and that very badly) is an easy way to add vector fills (lines, dots…) to polygons. Bitmaps (cf. assets) are no solution nor a workaround.

The only workaround that I have found so far, is to create a fill that covers the complete layout page and crop it to the shapes. That's how I created the fills for the three polygons in the attached map. But that is rather clumsy.

What I'd be looking for is the possibility to create something like vector based assets or styles to fill polygons.
