Vector warp - Add support for linked files

Recommended Posts

It seems that only vector objects that are 'physically' in the file you're working on can be warped correctly. Anything placed, even a 100% vector Designer file won't behave as you'd expect. For working with mock-ups, this is quite disappointing.

What about Placed as Embedded, rather than Placed as Linked?

Thanks for this feedback. We have now decided to include the raster based perspective and mesh warp non destructive live filters from Affinity Photo in the Pixel Persona of Designer and that is now available in the 2.1 beta released today. This allows the warping of images, embedded documents and other non-pure vector objects. The main thing to bear in mind is that these are raster based effects, and will mean any vector data you warp using these live filters will be rasterised when you come to export.

It would be great if you wanted to try it out in the beta and let us know what you think - you can sign up to the beta program here.
