Improvement of Stroke icons in Affinity V2

Recommended Posts

In my opinion, Serif made a mistake by not releasing the Beta version of Affinity 2.0 All work related to the new edition was done in great secrecy. If a beta version of the new Affinity was released, users would quickly find bugs, shortcomings and bad ideas. Such a bad idea is, among other things, changing the icons in the Stoke panel. It's not good now. So I suggest if the appearance has been changed, add only blue elements like in V1. I really worked 2 days in the new software and I'm just tired of staring at these icons and wondering what each means (because they are very similar in these grays).

And also this padlock or chain icon next to W and H and Start and End - now it looks so that you don't know if it's open or closed - it's not good. So just a small change to add a blue element and it will certainly help a lot in proper identification.

I use Affinity every day in my professional work. There are also many bugs in the new version, so for now I'm going back to a certain V1 version and I'll wait for the V2 version to be improved. In the photo: on the left side the current appearance of the Stroke panel icons - on the right side my proposal to change the icons.
