Sure thing. If you do assign shortcuts, then they will be in Preferences - Keyboard Shortcuts - View menu - Rotate Left/Right.

 

For finger gestures, Preferences - Tools - Enable Canvas Rotation with Trackpad.

Hi Bubily,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

No, sorry. There was several improvements to the app since then but there wasn't changes here yet.

 

Hi, new user here. My issue is that I am trying to transition away from Illustrator and need to open a lot of legacy files and all of the strokes I've used the Illustrator Width Tool on are now all expanded.

 

I really hope that they'll be some news on the Affinity implementation of the Width Tool soon.

That doesn't sound good. There is an option in the Stroke tab to change a stroke's profile (pressure), so I would think something like that should be identified. Since this topic is on an actual width tool, you might be better off making a new topic requesting for that compatibility. It might get lost here. Good luck to you.

This is the single biggest downside of Designer that keeps me away from using it. 4.5 years since the thread was created, 3 years since staff members confirmed they're working on it and it's still not out. No progress, only silence here and in other line thickness control related threads. To say I'm disappointed in my Designer purchase would be an understatement. I didn't expect this from software that's touted as a competent Illustrator competitor. Everything else is good, some things great even but I can't believe the software lacks such a fundamental feature as per node line thickness control. Pressure graph is too abstract and extremely fiddly when I add lots of points, it works only for simple cases. I need fine control for my lineart and it's simply not there.

For me I feel the pressure panel is too small. I would like to be able to manually resize it as needed. Currently, it feels tedious to make precise adjustments because it is too small.

Too small, and also not visible at all times like it was in DrawPlus.  It's a chore to use this one.

Here is a suggestion.
Also I would greatly appreciate having a feature like this in Affinity Photo also instead of just Designer.

Just downloaded the beta and it looks promising!

Line width was the first thing I was looking for, I use it a lot in Illustrator.

 

I found the pressure button after searching the forums and landing here.

Here is how I think it could be improved:

 

  • Put the adjustment / controls on the anchor point. 
    You want to be able to adjust lines and point right on your artboard after you've drawn them, not through menu's and panels.
  • Show preview lines of what my width will look like after I release the controls.
    Now you you see it happening while making points in the pressure window, but it's too far apart / not linked enough.
  • Keep the lines fluid, don't auto-add to many points.
  • Make it more about controlling "point thickness" like in Illustrator.
    I think a lot of (vector) illustrators want total control over their lines, the width, but also the anchor points and how they bend/ curve.

 

If done right I think this would be a great selling point / feature for Affinity Designer!
