Confusing Handle and Node

Recommended Posts

Hi,


[This is a repost of what I posted last week – somehow it missed the attention of Serif/Affinity folks. Thanks for reading!


https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/37639-node-control-handles-%E2%80%93-distinguishability-in-designer/?p=187464]


 


Request for better visual contrast between Smooth Nodes and their Control Handles.


Blue Circles, all!


 


Because the Control Handles are only distinguishable by being a bit smaller, when you've selected a bunch of nodes, it can be a real visual challenge to sort them out.


 


It's not a big deal if you're mostly drawing straight lines.


But when you draw complex, organic shapes (like sketching in vectors with a stylus),


you get long lines full of nodes, and when you select them,


it looks like a string of blue Christmas lights!

Click attached JPG, 2 views of the same path: Top is with nodes unselected, Bottom is selected.)


 


The Control Handles make it look like 3 times as many nodes.


 


Personally I'd prefer if Control Handles were either


- a different colour than nodes, or


- a different shape, or 


- both. (Or customizable in Prefs!)


 


Thanks,
