Affinity Designer - Problem with Brush on Vector & Curve

Recommended Posts

Hello Affinity Team,

I have a problem with the function "vector brush" or brush on curve and I wanted that my created brush is anchored horizontally instead of turning in the vector curve.

My idea was that with the Vector or Curve I get more influence on the drawn objects like brush width, Size Variance etc. without the objects changing their angle position.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to find a switch yet.:(

 

Is this a case for your to-do list or do you already have this feature in the feature roadmap?

 

Here are some examples when I assign a brush to a curve:

Hello, ChristAlix,

 

To keep the same orientation of the object all along the line, you must pass to Pixel Persona and use a raster brush.

It would be nice to have this possibility also for vector brushes.brushes.gif.c87a849a4775fe1877a45692a5dd5eda.gif

Thank you Reglico,

 

I already knew that the raster brush can be used without "rotation", but unfortunately I have no control or possibility to correct after my curve lines.

With vectors already!

 

I still hope that this feature has already been planned by developers, because it is only a code snippet that prevents the rotation along a curve! ;)

 

PS: The examples "Expected result:" were created with the raster brush in Pixel Persona.

Thanks for the feedback @ChristAlix, let's wait for this feature to be implemented in a future update!

Hello developer, it's been a year since I pointed out a brush problem in the Affinity Designer but unfortunately I haven't found an adequate solution in the current release (1.7.0.380) yet.

Will it be further developed in this direction or not and can I expect an implementation of a Vector Brush Tool at all?
