I have been a user of DrawPlus for few years before I welcome Affinity Designer into my PC.   Now, I have to go back to my DP8 just to use some feature I cannot find in the new software: e.g. Envelope distortion.   This particular one is so easy to use, it applies distortion to almost everything, including fonts and shapes, etc.    If anyone knows where it is within Affinity Designer, please, let me know.  One more thing: please, don't tell me to use nodes, because that's silly.  Why would I draw fonts just to distort them later, when I can do it directly, type something and reshape it as I please ?   ok thanks all for your help.

Hi Con Con,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Currently there's no Envelope Distortion (or any vector based distortion tool) in Affinity Designer. We have a mesh/warp tool planned (see Affinity Designer roadmap for the 1.x cycle (as a free update) which may help with this.

This is seriously the only thing that's stopping me from dropping my Adobe membership.... it's like leaving Green out of RGB... I find it VERY strange that this tool wasn't a part of the base set as it it so elementary. As a production designer and as a graphic artist, not having an envelope tool (like CorelDraw's) is unimaginably frustrating.

I have the latest version of Designer 1.6+ and there is no "Mesh warp/distort tool"


As @MEB indicated, the roadmap covers features planned for the 1.x cycle. Now that version 1.6 has been released, any features which were added in 1.6 should be removed from the roadmap if they haven't already been.
