Slice, Dice, & Design: Knife Tool Tutorial for Affinity Designer


Recommended Posts

@TrentL  Thank you! I don’t suppose I am the only person on Earth who usually learns more rapidly by reading than by watching a video whiz by in a minute or two or three or six. You take the time to show the in’s and out’s with such clear explanations and demonstrations!  As I watch there is no hitting Pause, scribbling some notes, then Play, then Pause, etc. while trying to spot “which icon on the Context Toolbar was that?,” or “where is that box he unchecked?” Or etc. I am hugely appreciating your tutorials and the information sticks!!!  As for the Knife Tool, it is one of my favorite things about Designer V2, but I easily learned things I hadn’t figured out by myself from this tutorial.

Thanks, glad you like it! I'm kind of doing a tour of all the basic tools first, and then plan to focus more on applications to graphic design + product design in the near future.

Is the knife tool available in Designer V1 for iPad too? I only can find the slice tool but that doesn’t work like the knife tool.

Although the video title (and the topic title for this thread) is ‘Slice, Dice, & Design: Knife Tool Tutorial for Affinity Designer’, the Knife Tool is actually new in version 2.
