Is there an equivalent to Adobe Illustrator's shaper tool I can use to quickly cut off excess elements of overlapping shapes?

In Illustrator, once accessed using the shortcut shift + m, it can be used to quickly cut and combine selected shapes. (I have attached a video demonstrating the feature)

Since this tool was pretty handy in quickly creating new shapes out of a bunch of others, it would be stoked to learn if something similar exists within Affinity Designer!

 

Thanks in advance.

AFAIK, there is no equivalent tool (yet) in Affinity Designer.

On the contrary, you have posted your question clearly & succinctly, complete with a brief video with no extraneous steps ... it does not get any righter than that. :)

I see ... thanks for letting me know! I am glad to hear I did everything correctly :)

 

I guess I will make do with the boolean operations in the meanwhile then!
