Expand / Shrink Path - Pfad erweitern und schrumpfen

Recommended Posts


da ich als Laie mein Anliegen besser in Deutsch formulieren kann, hoffe ich erst mal so Hilfe zu bekommen. Ich möchte gern einen Pfad erweitern. Nicht skalieren, sondern erweitern oder schrumpfen. Der Pfad soll an allen Seiten gleichmäßig "wachsen", so dass ich diesen erweiterten Pfad aus einem anderen Motiv ausstanzen kann, somit entsteht ein Abstand, der überall gleich ist. Einfach skalieren reicht in diesem Fall nicht aus, da der Pfad so "ungleichmäßig wächst". Bei Inkscape heißt das ganze schrumpfen/ erweitern. 

Ist dies mit dem Affinity Designer für Mac möglich?


Vielen Dank für eure Hilfe!



I hope my question can be answered in German. Nevertheless, I try to describe my request in English. Is there a possibility to expand or shrink pathes? The path should grow the same size on every side. I'd like to duplicate an object, expand it, and cut it out of a background object. In result, I have an equal space between the object and the background object. It's difficult to explain... 

Thanks for your help,
