Designer (vector) Pencil Tool: Continue Path

6 posts in this topic

Hi there,

 

In Designer, when you've drawn a line (path) with the Pencil tool, 

and lifted your stylus, the path is 'done', and the Pencil is ready to draw the next path.

¿What if you want to Continue that same path – rather than just adding another one at its end?

 

Pencil sketching is appealing because of its speed; it would no longer be any fun if you had to manually connect paths that you want to be a single one.

 

Is there a modifier key to do continue from the last node of an already drawn path? I couldn't find one.

 

If none exists, would this be a good feature for the Wish List?

 

thanks in advance,

P.S.: One good reason to want the paths to continue — rather than just contiguous, is:

If you use a pressure contour for a natural taper at the ends, you only want it to taper at the place you consider your line to be finished – not necessarily where you first lifted your stylus.

Hi Pbass, 

 

This isn't possible using the Pencil Tool at the moment I'm afraid. However this is something I think would make a great addition to the app so I will move this to Feature Requests :)

Unfortunately, this is a feature I really need in my everyday work, and without it, Affinity Designer remains redundant on my computer in favour of Xara Designer Pro which does this with ease. Please, please, please add this feature.
