Combining curves at an insecting point

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to combine these two curves into one. Optimally, this should result in a sharp point at the intersection.

Other programs like Illustrator or Blender solve this problem with a knife tool or similar.

I can't find any information about how to do this online.

Please help. Thanks in advance.

With both objects selected choose menu Layer > Geometry > Merge Curves. It will result in 1 layer of type "(Curves)" (Plural) containing two initial single curve objects.


I am not sure what you want to achieve with an additional node but you can add one easily with the Node Tool, before or after the merge.

thank you for your answer. My goal is to basically get rid of the two top parts of the curves like this.


I'm making a logo and there are a bunch of intersecting lines like these. An i need to find a way to combine them all and get rid of the excess.

Affinity does not have a knife / scissors tool, so this task gets a bit uncomfortable. "Merge Curves" is not helpful now, so use separate curves. You need to …

… add an extra node (see above) to the first curve, and
… with the new node selected press in the Context Toolbar the button Action: "Break Curve", then
… select only the unwanted part to delete it.

Repeat the steps with the other curve. Finally select both new nodes and press the button Action: "Join Curves".
