In the book Affinity Designer Workbook on  page 319 point 5 it reads "With the circle selected, on the context toolbar, click Show Rotation Centre and move teh circle's centre to th middle of the square".


I don't know if the interface differs depending on the computer being Mac or Windows? I am using a Microsoft Surface Book 2, and following both the Workbooks for Photo and Designer, sometimes the appropriate controls can be difficault to find - but in this particular case I simply can't find it!

Hi Joachim! Not quite! Thanks for your consern though! As a matter of fact - the control you pointed out had slipped my attention - but it didn't solve the issue!

The operation is selecting a circle and rotate (copy) it with a centre outside the circle itself. I add two shots from the book to illustrate.

Best regards

Hi @Erik Kjærbye,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
The control Joaquim_L pointed out above is correct. You now have to drag the marker that appears in the centre of the circle to the middle of the square then proceed with he rest of the steps (duplicate and rotate the circles).

Seems that "Show Rotation Centre" is now called "Enable Transform Origin" in it's tooltip, thanks.
