Edit selected paths in Affinity Designer?


Recommended Posts

Does Affinity Designer have a similar function to Adobe Illustrator "Edit selected paths" for Pencil tool? It allows to correct drawn paths/strokes while drawing by "re-drawing" segments of them (I think Astute Graphics have a plug-in which does similar thing as well, again for Illustrator): it is very useful for hand drawing in Illustrator. I've tested Affinity Designer trial version on my PC (Windows 10) and it seems to perform better than Illustrator. However, I was unable to find a function similar to "Edit selected paths." Thank you in advance for help.

Is this feature included yet? It is a make or break for me. Can’t find it anywhere in the settings. 

The Pencil Tool now includes a "Sculpt" mode which may do what you want. From the online Pencil Tool help topic:

  • Sculpt—When enabled, any selected pencil stroke can be reshaped or continued; the former by drawing a new start and end point anywhere along the pencil stroke, the latter by drawing from either stroke end node.

Its use is (very briefly!) demonstrated in the last 30 seconds or so of the Pencil Tool video tutorial.
