The case for a Shape Builder tool. Feature request.

Recommended Posts

Adobe Illustrator has the blend tool, and I think adding a similar tool to Affinity Designer would be a fantastic addition.

It provides functionality that enables artists to produce some very cool shape blending. I've attached a bunch of example. Many more can be found on the web.

Is there a demand for this? Yes. Here are some links to some feature request threads from V1 Affinity Designer for this tool:

As I am researching this post, I find that seems to have been on your road map 8 years ago https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/7941-designer-blend-shapes/&do=findComment&comment=32002 , but still has not been added. Is there something blocking it's implementation?

I think it is safe to say that, not just me, but a lot of people would really appreciate this feature. I hope you can find a way to bring it to V2.

When I posted this I thought it was the first post that had been made as a feature request to V2, with all previous requests being for V1. I see now that I did miss one thread. My mistake. I am new here, so warm welcome to me I guess. I also think it is a feature that a lot of people are clamouring for, so hoped the thread would bring discussion on the issue. If it is problematic a mod can let me know and I can remove it.
