Affinity Designer - Mirror Along a Line

Recommended Posts

I'm trying really hard to figure out how to do this, but I can't seem to get it to work properly. I have the frilly curves on the left side of the thin line. I'd like to use that line as a form of mirror, and the nodes at the ends of the curve are snapped to the line. I have tried duplicating the curves, flipping and rotating them, and trying to snap them as well, but it is not working. I can't find any "symmetry" feature except in the Pixel persona, and I don't think I want to go there.

Am I looking at this the wrong way? Should I be doing something else to accomplish this? I'm making several more corner designs like this that require 45 degree mirroring.

It seems you nearly got there?


Indeed, unfortunately flip or mirror options are quite limited and reported to be insufficient in Affinity. This topic discusses some workarounds:

When I posted this, it didn't seem to want to snap to the "guide" I made. What ended up working was penning this out using a vertical guide, then it would snap to the guide🤦

Even though I had effectively solved it, I left this open hoping there was a better way. I will definitely be checking out that feature request. Thank you!
