Scale Document / AI Plugin compatibility


Recommended Posts

I would like to use Affinity Designer for scaled drawings and designs. Examples include: Architecture, Carpentry, Landscaping (hardscaping, garden design, etc.), Mapping, etc.

In these applications I need to scale the document to match real world dimensions in feet, yards, kilometers, miles, etc. so that 1" or 1 cm = some larger unit of measure i.e. 1:125,000 or 1:12 or 1:1000.

There are plugins for AI to do this for mapping, etc. Example: http://www.avenza.com/mapublisher

Can Designer use AI plugins like Photo can use Photoshop plugins?

Can Designer scale documents? I can't find it. I only saw a request for this from 3 years ago and no follow up since.

Hi Sarvasri,

 

It's not currently possible to set a drawing scale.  It has been requested a number of times in our Feature Requests Section of the forums.

 

Affinity Designer can not make use of any plugins.

Scaling of documents seems to be a recurring request on this forum. Is there any chance that it will be introduced in the near future?

There is always a chance it will be introduced sometime in the future. And, if introduced, there is a chance that it will do what you want.

Serif generally doesn't comment on what might come in the future, though. So about all you can do it wait and see what happens.
