Is there available this feature in Affinity Designer?

Recommended Posts

I’d like to use Affinity Designer for designing user interfaces, but, you know, it’s so tricky to design interfaces without this feature.
Can someone help me?
All the best,

Looks like the beta 1.5 does this already, only that I have found that you have to align two objects vertically or horizontally first then the distance reader will show. This feature might be in the early stages of development though.

If you notice, Sketch only shows you the distances if you align one edge.  If you don't snap/align it doesn't show you anything.  To me, it is also so random in what it decides to show that it drives me to distraction.


We have shown the distances on snapping indicators.  I am also adding the Alt-mouse distance checker, and experimenting with a temporary distance indicator when you use keyboard nudge.
