Sneak peeks for 1.7


Recommended Posts

THis feature is available in Photo but missing from designer.   You can send it to “edit in Photo” to use the perspective tool and them go back but the artwork area will be rasterized>>>

Which is not the purpose of it.. :(

Well. Yeah. That's about as useful as a cup of decaf.
Seriously, this isn't a new technology for drawing software. Even the Open Source Inkscape features a cube tool whose result can be set and reset at any perspective, and subsequent 3D boxes adhere to the same vanishing point as the first in the document. Which is hardly thrilling until you notice that they make a good template for text and other shapes.

Bucket list? Please? Please?

Well to be fair, Inkscape first came out in 2003. Affinity came out in 2014. It hasn't been out that long, so it's understandable that 3D editing wasn't provided on its early releases.

The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!

I don't care to see anything akin to the cheezy Cube Tool in Inkscape as an excuse for a converging perspective solution. Things like that are far less than the depth of the parallel perspective axes and grids feature previewed in this thread. I'm sure that if a converging perspective feature is planned for Affinity, it will be worth waiting for.

Frankly, I find the software-independent concept of Lazy Nezumi Pro more sophisticated. Have you tried that? You may be surprised at the construction you can do with it in a vector drawing program. In Affinity, just set the Pen to Line Mode and start drawing your perspective rays.

is there any news on what text tools are coming in 1.7 yet as I would love bullets and numbers to be added in (I know you can use emoji and character viewer but a native way way of doing this would be great p.s if this is already in 1.6 can somebody tell me how to use it because I haven't found it) 

plus in addition I would like a way to use your own assets as bullets to be added to text easily.

 

I'm hoping with them developing publisher (hope we get it this year, fingers crossed) that we get something like bullets and numbers.

 

And a Thank you to the affinity / serif team for such great products.

We’ve been told that Affinity Publisher will be released to public beta in the next few months, and that the bullets and numbering feature from Publisher will be added to the other apps in the suite, but whether we’ll see it first in the existing apps is anybody’s guess.

Sadly, it's only for Windows so I can't use it, but I did play with it when I was a Windows user. Taking another look on their website, they have so many good ideas. That scripting graph!

All the more amazing, given that “they” seem to be a one-man band!

Will we also be able to use the align tools on nodes?

 

Still missing the ability to move a node pressing spacebar while pulling the handles (like in AI). It really makes tweaking curves a lot easier/faster.

 

cheers,

Sven

Count me in. This is a very Important feature for all vector software.

AD 2 will be after completion of the AD 1 roadmap, which is likely to be many years away.

 

 

 

And when do you think it will be -- after 1.7 or 1.9 or 1.99 or 1.999 or... :)

I forget which staff member said it, but it was mentioned that after 1.9, there will be a 1.10, 1.11, so it still has a long way to go. My guess is that they will stop after they squeeze in all of the roadmap features or shortly after it.

I'm all for FREE updates as opposed to PAID upgrades.

Everyone loves freebies, but Serif staff probably appreciate being paid occasionally! The money for that has to come from somewhere.

Hi @JET_Affinity,

 

out of curiousity I installed the trial version (on Windows 10) and was not able to get it to work with AD, AI, Xara or MS 3D Paint.

Basically it did not work out to 'hook' to any of these programs and presented an error message instead.

Does this tool really work with AD on your computer?

 

Thanks,

d.

I’m not JET (obviously!) but Lazy Nezumi Pro works with AD on my Windows 10 computer. Thanks to LNP, I was able to draw this in AD a couple of years ago.
