Hi pjarnold!

 

At the moment, we don't have a wireframe view mode - although I do also really want one! I'll add one whenever I get a Friday afternoon free - so expect it hopefully soon! It has its own issues that need resolving, but it's fairly trivial in the scheme of things. Keep an eye out for it in future betas :)

 

Thanks,

Matt

Or add a background layer filled with a rectangle of any colour you want. (Lock it to prevent it being accidentally selected, and make it invisible before printing or exporting.)

I've had a quick stab at this over the last hour and I've come up with this so far - there's more to do, but just to prove we're listening to your requests and working on them as hard as we can, I thought I'd share a screenshot!...  :)

....And I'll fourth or fifth this!    :)

 

The split screen wireframe and standard option would be VERY useful and desirable to have access to!

Another aspect of this that is handy in that "other" app is the ability to hide edges or outlines when selected. Sometimes it's crucial to edit a shape but not have the shape edges highlighted because the highlights interfere with the visual of the element you're working on... is this a possible feature down the road? To be selected but not appear to be...?

Someone's going to lose a lot of subscriptions over this app. I'm very excited about Affinity Designer and the other announced Mac apps. I signed up for this forum just to ask about a vector/wireframe mode, and here the developer is already chasing it with a vengeance.

Yes I've been working on a piece over the last few days and this feature works like a charm, but eventually a keyboard shortcut will really make this production ready. Currently going to the menubar every time is not ideal and if you want split screen (which is freakin awesome btw) it's a 2 step process. One to turn on outline view, one to enable split view. Again I think the allowance of custom key shorts will smooth out some of the wrinkles here and in other places, but for a first effort it's jaw dropping!
