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!

 

Thanks

Callum

I love AD, but hate having to use a 20-yr-old copy of CorelDraw to do a simple text distortion. 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.

I am missing something like that too. It is so very basic for work in a vector app. Af Photo has it for pixels. But I really need this for vector objects too.

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.
