Is there a vector erase tool in Affinity Designer?

Recommended Posts

Don't remember which version I've used then, since I got those tools (DrawPlus and PagePlus) once with an IT magazine subscription on a bundled companion graphics tool theme DVD some time ago.


☛ Affinity Designer 1.7.1 ◆ Affinity Photo 1.7.1 ◆ OSX El Capitan

as long as there is no knife tool, why not use the pen tool as a knife.

As dutchsader says, while waiting for the knife tool, I use a very fine line drawn with the pen, "expand the stroke" and "Divide". I then delete the parts to be removed and the unnecessary pieces of the line.

it allso works with the pencil tool, for more freehand shapes.

Yes, I use it more often on shapes than to cut lines.

 

Edit

 

I had misunderstood the post: I had never used the pencil in these conditions, always the pen.

Thanks! Brilliant! I haven't thought of that before. :)
