Please add my vote of support to the large number of Beta testers that have called for a Dimension Tool. In my humble opinion as a user that believed the move from Draw to Affinity should represent a forward progression in graphical capabilities rather than a step backwards. Do please introduce what in my view is an essential capability for what is otherwise a wonderful design/drawing package.

For industrial designers, architects, technical illustrators, etc. an indispensable feature. For this target group a change to Affinity-Designer is not feasible.

I do find it disappointing that Serif Draw that has had this capability for years should be a missing a dimensions feature in what purports to be Draw's replacement, packed with more up to date tools and features. Worse still is the continued silence from the Serif and the production team!?

I for one had been looking forward to being able to remove Draw from the an increasing clutter on my PC, but sadly this appears for now not to be possible. :40_rage:

Affinity Designer is not a replacement for DrawPlus. It's an entirely separate app which just happens to come from the same company.

Hi Alfred,

Thanks for your correction to my misinterpretation of how these application relate. I stand corrected.
That said, it remains my opinion that Affinity Designer should have the capability to include dimensions on drawings, as voiced other readers. Obviously, each users may agree or disagree, as is their right to do so. And I continue to be disappointed that the development team has not responded.

Kind regards,

Dave

Traditionally, and usually, the Serif staff do not comment in the feature request topics. They read them, and take note of what the users are asking for, but that's all.

This is a really needed feature. Actually this has to be implemented with great attention to detail (meaning ability to measure length, angle, surface, etc.) and it will draw even more users to the Designer.

Please include dimensions for a future update.

The growing business for small business CNC, CAD/CAM would seem ideal for growing Affinity Designer's base.
