Outline / contour

Recommended Posts

I might have overlooked it somewhere else, but a feature I am really missing is the ability to create contours of an object like with the outline function, but with multiple outlines, and with a positive or negative radius, so the contours can be outside or inside the object.


Along with this should go the ability to break the contours apart from the original object so that each can be handled individually.


This is a feature that I used constantly in Corel Draw, which I am hoping to be able to ditch completely.

Hi Jeffrsnapln,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

An outline function/tool was requested a couple times already. It should be coming later. Meanwhile you will have to use strokes - converting them to shapes going to Layer -> Expand Stroke and using Layer > Geometry -> Divide to separate them - as a workaround to create the outlines.
