Affinity Designer: Width tool for lines like Illustrator?

Recommended Posts

In Adobe Illustrator, I could create a stroke using the Pen Tool (P) and then go back and use the Width tool and select two points and make that part of the line wider.  So that I could have a line that went from thin to wide to thin.  Is there an equivalent way to do this in Designer?

 

For reference only, I am linking to a demo of the technique I am speaking about

Well there is no dedicated wide tool like in Ai where you can directly grab a point handle and adjust from there, instead there is the pressure profile panel (shown above by Pšenda) where you can adjust the line shape from. - See this explanation video:

Awesome, thank you both for the replies.  Took me only a minute figure out what I wanted once I understood about how pressure worked from the tutorial
