Then you have to expand stroke on the dividing curve, as I said before. You just have to set a minimal stroke on the curve first.

Affinity Designer doesn't have a Knife Tool yet. It's on the roadmap for version 1.x, but meanwhile you can work around the limitation by dividing with a closed shape which completely overlaps the area that you want to separate:

Dude I did it already, it's not the same result. When dividing on AI it's like a knife, there is no gape between 2 shapes.. see my video again min  0:30

Yeah, That's what I did when I found out there is no way to cut the shape in 2 as on AI. One circle 0.1 pt Stroke, but still not the same result as "knife" tool
I hope it's gonna be added to Affinity Designer soon
Thanks

Did you even watch the video I posted? Just set the curves stroke to 0,1.

I did and I have already told you "it's not the same".

Plus when you "expand stroke" zoom in and see what will happen, still same for you?

I didn't actually apply a stroke at all. For the right-hand half of my screenshot I introduced gaps so that you could see the pieces; in hindsight, I should have stuck with my original idea of changing the fills or the opacity. Apologies for the confusion!

I see.. What've tested is only 0,1pt stroke, no fill.

You can even do it with no stroke and no fill, but that does make it quite hard to see. :P
