Cut & Paste Nodes / Segments

Recommended Posts

Hello. I just want to say that this beautiful software is almost unusable for me as it lacks the feature of being able to successfully edit: cut, copy or delete a shape's segment or a single node and being able to paste it into another.

At least 3 other threads in which the problem is stated:

The solutions provided are just a real hassle and no help at all while trying to keep an efficient workflow.

I believe this should really be of high concern to you. I don't know if you have designers among your staff but it would probably be wise to ask some of them how they work with shapes, specially coming from other programs many in which these features are easily available.

Thanks in advance.

This would be a fantastic feature to have. Though, I am not sure what you mean by "delete". You can already delete individual nodes by pressing Del or assign the Delete operator to another key (I use X for quick accessibility). Cutting and copying are however not really possible without using a Divide boolean operator to divide up loose parts into different layers.

First time using Affinity vector nodes I was actually surprised that I couldn't cut/copy and paste nodes, since that made intuitive sense from using those features while working with raster.
