We need this for macros.


Hi, can we have a percent option as a unit everywhere? For example, you would have a percentage option here (resize canvas).


I would like it if you could change the rulers to % or sometimes I need to re-size the canvas in percentage terms too. I know you can do this by "whatever units the document is using, just type 75%" but it does not remember a percentage in the macro, just the unit value. That is why I would like to see % as an option everywhere.

I use Affinity Photo and just realized that there is no % resize for photo or the canvas. It's a feature that I used often in another product.

And I come with reverse problem. At this moment I am working with loads of donuts/pies and instead of accurate measurement I have only % as hole radius. Then the problem is not in individual functions but in units as general. As I remember when I used corel draw I could fill any field that contains units with:

- a number (that is number of default units)

- a number with units different then default units

- a percentage

- a simple math formula i.e. 84327mm +98734mm, or 96/3 (moves/ transforms object beyond human error).
