Snaps, Transforms and Arrays Improvements and Additions

Recommended Posts

Hello dears, these weeks I tried using Affinity Designer as my drafting software for architectural drawing. It's been a pleasure until I hardly needed tangent and orthogonal snapping. AD reveals to be a very nice software to make nice looking drawings fast, but it lacks some fundamental functions which would definetly speed up architectural and other workflows.

The tools I hardly suggest to add into next versions of Affinity are:

  • Snap to tangent and orthogonal points, well all the Autocad and Rinocheros snaps would just be fantastic.
  • Transforms based on starting and reference point (example: rotate a line using a custom pivot and a custom reference point which can be snapped during the operation);
  • Arrays: the ability to copy things along a curve and/or in a specified direction ad certain distances (following rotation or not and to add some more coolness: with a scale variation based on a custom profile);
  • Grid copy: same as Arrays but based on a grid.

Well, measures would also be a great add for AD in the product design field, but It'd be a to much specific need probably.

I'd be so great to have such facilities.
