Good morning everybody,

I am finding another thing that seems to be missing from Designer which I use an awful lot in CorelDRAW and which is kind worrying to me unless maybe I'm missing something. In Corel I have a blend tool. I believe Illustrator has the same thing though I don't use Illustrator. It allows me to create two objects and blend them together. This is particularly useful for creating interesting drop shadows and so on. Is there really no way to do this in Designer? I'm attaching a screenshot to show you what I mean. Corel allows me to choose which aspects of each object interact with one another.

Hopefully there is some way of doing this or it will be added as it seems like a very important tool to me.

Thanks very much and let me know!

Phil

It didn't. This is my before and after of clicking Create Compound. It seems to be going to upload backwards! The green box at bottom is the Before.

This feature will arrive the day after we get cold fusion and puppies that don't poop.

But we will still not get export preview and JPG optimization.

Yes, this feature needed. Miss this most from Illustrator and CorelDraw. It is the heart of geometric repetition and evolvement. 

I used this feature in Corel Draw!, like 20+ years ago actually :)

Not that I'm saying every imaginable feature should already be in Affinity Designer *right now* of course. But I Love this feature too.
