deleting nodes

5 posts in this topic

When I use DrawPlus to edit nodes, I can delete a chain of nodes by just selecting a node and holding my finger on the Delete key until the chain of nodes has been deleted. In Affinity Designer, I find that I can only delete nodes one at a time. Does Designer have the ability to delete a string of nodes or am I doomed to have to select and delete one at a time? Is there something I don't know? Thank you.

Press A to change to the Nodes Tool, while using the Node Tool you can drag a selection around nodes to select them and then delete them, you do that by left clicking and holding then move the cursor around the nodes you don't want, then press delete.

Thank you for your reply. Yes, I know I have the option of selecting around nodes and deleting them as a group but what I am specifically asking is whether I can delete nodes in a continuous chain. In certain cases, I find that selecting a group of nodes is not as accurate as deleting in a chain, particularly in tight places within an image. Can Designer do that? Thank you.

I am also trying to delete groups of nodes that are not on a straight path (see pic). In Illustrator you could select each section of converted text separately so deleting was quick and easy. Is there a way to do the same in AD? As I can't colour the text shadow differently I have to make another layer and delete the shadow of the top layer. A quick way of doing this would be great.
