Hello All,

I've been playing around with the cog tool, and I'm trying to figure out a way to create a cog with the teeth on the inside. Anything obvious I might be missing?

No, AFAIK you have to construct your own (cog + donat or the like).

Thanks for the reply. Any idea how one would do that?

You could  play around with a cog and a donut as @v_kyr suggests.

Hi all,

You can also create a compound with "Subtract". 

To create a Compound:
  1. Select multiple objects.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • From the Layer menu, select Create Compound.
    • Hold down the ALT key and, on the Toolbar, select Add, Subtract, Intersect or Combine.
To change the compound mode of individual objects:
  1. In the Layers panel, click the object's compound mode icon.
  2. Select a compound mode from the pop-up menu.
To add an object to a Compound:
  • In the Layers panel, drag the object on top of the compound object.

The object is included in the Compound using the default Add mode.

To remove an object from a Compound:
  • In the Layers panel, drag the object from inside the compound object to a layer.
To break up a Compound:
  1. Select the Compound.
  2. From the Layer menu, select Release Compound.

I'm sensing come cognitive dissonance.

But seriously folks. Thanks for the suggestions. I should have mentioned that i' using Affinity Photo, don't have designer. So I don't have the Compound option on the Layer menu. I think to Cog and donut combo will work, though. Just need to figure out how to combine them so they share styles and such.

You can make a Compound in AP: hold down opt/alt key as you apply a Boolean command that's in Layer > Geometry menu.

Also, buttons for the Geometry commands can be added to AP's toolbar, and holding down opt/alt when clicking one will make a Compound.
