Hi, team.

On attached screenshot you can see word "HIERARCHY" with diagonal line on top. Tell me, please, how i can split "HIERARCHY" word by this diagonal line?

Best, 

Andrew.

If this is going on a white or solid coloured background, you can just colour the stroke to the colour of the background.

If you want this to be a able to go onto gradient or textured backgrounds you can convert the text to curves create two strokes and boolean subtract each stroke from each letter using
Layer > Geometry > Subtract

Forgot to add you need to expand the strokes of the dividing line using Layer > Expand Stroke

Thanks, mate. But you got me wrong. I mean how i slice this word by this line.

I know of one way, I don't know if there are better ways...
1. Create the text;
2. Layer -> Convert to curves;
3. Layer -> Ungroup;
4. Layer -> Expand stroke;
5. Create the line;
6. Give the line a small stroke width;
7. Layer -> Expand stroke;
8. Duplicate the expanded-stroke line;
9. Change the fill colour of the expanded stroke line (makes later steps easier);
Repeat steps 8 & 9 if you need to cut through more than two letters (e.g total of three lines for three letters).
10. De-select everything;
11. Select a letter to cut;
12. Shift+Select a line (any will do);
13. Layer -> Geometry -> Divide;
14. Locate and delete all the bits of the now divided line (easier to do when they're coloured differently).
After dividing the letter you might get the situation where a hole in the letter has become filled. In these cases, select both the letter and 'hole' and use the Layer -> Geometry -> Subtract function to remove the hole.
Repeat steps 10-14 for each extra letter to be cut.

There could be quicker methods but it's not much work to do for a one-off.

I don't think Designer can work quite that way yet but I'd be happy to be proved wrong.
Have you tried the method I posted a few minutes ago? It's a bit long but it works.

The Affinity Designer roadmap includes a Knife Tool - in the Illustration & Design section - so that might be something that's coming soon. (I didn't read the 73 pages of replies to find out any more info'.)
@firstdefence Thanks for posting that video; always good to get another method/feature to try out.

Thanks for your research, mate! Glad to read this information but this info from 2014 as i can see and still nothing about this Knife Tool :) Somebody asked the same question about Knife Tool a week ago.

You're welcome.
Some of the geometry tools already basically do what I would expect from a Knife Tool - Subtract and Divide can both 'cut' through shapes - so fingers crossed for something in 1.7. (In the meantime, I like the method that firstdefence posted.)
