Using vector graphics as stroke style in Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Hello Affinity Designer development team!

 

I'm using Affinity Designer for game art, and the introduction of symbols in 1.5 is incredibly helpful! It would be great if it was possible to use a symbol as a curve stroke. Currently there is no way of bending vector objects in any way, and the only way to conform something to a path is to save it to raster image and create a textured brush out of it. It's not a very productive workflow  :)

 

Thanks!

Oh, and I forgot to mention that this is also relevant for tiling textures. I have to manually rasterize (save to file) something to tile it through Fill Tool -> Type: Bitmap. A vector alternative would be to make a whole bunch of symbols, place them side by side and nest into a shape, but it's not very convenient.
