Great, but really needs offset path function

Recommended Posts

Just getting going - really cool software! I see there has been discussion about an offset path function for a few years - coming soon? I'm not sure any other vector software lacks that tool. I am using the suggested workaround for now but...

 

Other than that, I'm hooked :D

Hello and welcome to the Affinity forum.

 

It's not being implemented now, but it doesn't mean it will never come. Affinity is working on getting the more common vector features out of the way first. Everything here will come as free updates some time before the first paid update, version 2.

From what little I know of AI, AD handles some of the offset path w. just the shape stroke settings. Those can be extended by the outline and outer shadow fx.

 

A sample:

Interesting observation.
