I'll add it when I get chance.  I'll probably add a few of them when I do.

Ok - easy done.  This will be in the next Beta.

 

I've added pi, phi (or gr, the golden ratio), root2 (square root of 2) and e (Eulers constant).

 

So, in the transform tab, you should be able to use something like "h * phi" (or "h * gr") in the width box to create a box with golden ratio.

You can also use functions like Sqrt(n).

 

Currently we have:

 

Abs(n) - absolute value

IDiv(num,denom) - Whole division (integer result)

IRem(num,denom) - Remainder of whole division

Sq(n) - Square

Sqrt(n) - Square root

Sin(angle)

Cos(angle)

Tan(angle)

Min(n1,n2) - Min of two numbers

Max(n1,n2) - Max of two numbers

Mid(n1,n2) - Mid point between two numbers

Lerp(a,b,t) - Linear interpolation between two numbers

Clamp(n,min,max) - Clamp a number between two bounds

Was there a question in there?

Yes, two actually. What is this algebra and do we mere mortals need it?

 

I was actually looking for the golden ratio path, as seen in DrawPlus: will this be included one day?

Yes - mere mortals could very well need it.  Certainly handy in the transform tab.  You can quickly create a shape with a fixed ratio size.  You can position using multiples of a given number without having to work it out yourself.  There are lots of possibilities.

 

Crucially, using formula will also be much more accurate in some situations.

I'd like to just be able to overlay a golden ratio grid, or a rule of thirds grid when working in Affinity Designer. More interestingly the golden ratio, but the rule of thirds (and multiples of it) could be great for Affinity Photo too.

 

I want to be able to snap to those grid lines in the app.
