Smart Nodes need to be more logical

Recommended Posts

When I place 4 nodes in perfect square shape and turn them into smart nodes, I would assume it would create a perfect circle.

But instead it creates this odd shape:

It would take at least 8 nodes to create somewhat normal-looking circle. I think this behavior makes smart nodes quite useless.

I would say Inkscape's Auto-Smooth Nodes are much closer to what I would expect from Smart Nodes.

Choosing the ‘Smart Node’ option only tells AD to decide how smooth the curve should be, not how curved it should be.

If there's no way to set curve's smoothness or curvature, it's using some default values. And I pointed that the default values Affinity chose to go with, don't make much sense.
