drawing with arrows termination

Recommended Posts


just bought this product for my Mac. Scope is working with svg files (edit and create).

I'm unable to find how to draw lines (segments) terminating with arrows.

I don't want to draw a triangle and groupo with line to generate an arrow but using a native function present in any drawing tool

Can someone help?

You did not mention which Affinity app you bought (Designer or Photo) but currently neither one support line end shapes like arrowheads (or any of the other end shapes that SVG supports). This much requested feature is on the Designer but not the Photo roadmap, so while there is no ETA for when it will be implemented in Designer, it will be a free update whenever it is.

Until then, there are few workarounds suggested by other forum members. You can find them by searching the forum on "arrowheads" or the like, but they are no substitute for the real thing.

Affinity Photo 1.7.1, Affinity Designer 1.7.1, Affinity Publisher 1.7.1; macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 iMac (27-inch, Late 2012); 2.9GHz i5 CPU; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M; 8GB RAM

my product is "Designer". I believe this feature is central in any drawing tool. 

It was my fault purchasing the product without checking all the feature I need and is not cheap

Do you have plan to implementg new features?
