Better integration between Constraints and Transform panels

Recommended Posts

I love the constraints feature in Affinity.


But I see three major issues that make its use a little more difficult than it should be:


1. Constraints panel is too big and takes too much space on the screen.

2. Constraints panel is not related to the transform panel, which is a little odd if you take in consideration that constraints are relevant to object's size and position.

3. The "Min fit" and "Max fit" icons are not clear about what they are supposed to do (even watching the constraints tutorial, I found it very hard to understand how they behave, and what are the practical applications for them)


So I've drafted this redesign proposal merging Transform panel with Constraints panel.


What do you think? I'd love to see something like this on Designer 1.7 :D
