Shape Builder Tool

Recommended Posts

Thanks. I can't seem to quite create what i'd like from them. For example, i'd like to create a yin yang shape by combining the areas marked X

Here's a way to get there:

Instead of using a full circle (the larger one) use just half. First you will have to convert it to curves (select the large circle then go to Layer menu -> Convert to curves). Then delete one of the nodes to make an half-circle.

 

From there you can figure the rest. After you have completed the half of the yin yang shape (step four on this image) just duplicate it and flip it in both directions (horizontal and vertical) and place it in position using snapping.

I still think it would be a good idea to add a shape builder. It's a fast way to mock up logos, and both Serif Draw / Illustrator have it. It allows for the creation of some complex forms that aren't easily possible with normal boolean operations.

I also would very appreciate a shape builder tool like in Illustrator.

One can simply create some basic shapes and connect overlapping areas to create complex shapes.

That would be a great timesaver!
