Hi JimGo,


Welcome to the forums :)


There isn't any tool like the Warp Options in Affinity Designer I'm afraid.  However Mesh warp/distort tool and additional text features is something that is on our RoadMap to be added in a future update!




Please tag me using @ in your reply so I can be sure to respond ASAP.

Any chance v.1.7 will be able to do this?

I doubt it will be implemented, otherwise they would already have announced some sort of freeform or envelope distortion as an AD v.1.7 feature.  - So one has still to use other third party vector tools for things like this.


☛ Affinity Designer 1.9.3 ◆ Affinity Photo 1.9.3 ◆ OSX El Capitan

I have AD on my iPad Pro and have done some designs/illustrations on it, I really love the pen tool and controls. I would consider it for my PC (as an alternative or replacement for AI) but. It's missing one thing. Text warp/distort as the OP has demonstrated. In the illustration attached, the character design was done almost entirely in AD, but I had to export the file and finish it in illustrator for the typography. 

It seems this request has been on the board for some time, and I am not sure how far down the roadmap it will be. I really do feel this is a very important productivity tool that should be in any design software tool kit.

I suppose I could hand design the text distorts but for most applications it's just not an efficient use of my time (unless I really want custom type). 

I may just purchase the desktop version anyways and hope that the feature is added soon... I really want to support this software, I think you guys are doing a great job on features up to this point.
