Affinity Designer - Break a curve / Circle

Recommended Posts

Hi There,


I guess this should be simple, but I can't fathom how to do it!


I'd like to break a circle into 4 quadrants


I've added to lines that intersect the circle and I assumed I could use them to 'split' the circle (see attached)


Any help appreciated

Assuming that you drew the circle with the Ellipse Tool, you don’t need any intersecting lines. If you select the circle with the Node Tool you’ll see that there are four nodes, all in the right places. Click on the ‘Break Curve’ icon on the Context toolbar to break the circle at each of those nodes.
