@MEB, I know I'm late to the party. But, I often utilize symbols in my designs and had been looking for how to add or build a symbols library. However, I clicked on the link you provided here and it said the video could not be found. Can you provide an updated link?

Hi jc4d,
Currently there's no specific tools to fill objects with vector patterns however you can use symbols help you achieve a similar result - you only have to edit the symbol to update all the instances of it in the project. To learn more about symbols check this video tutorial:  Symbols.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums :) 

This is the legacy Symbols tutorial (1.5) previously linked to and this is the current symbols tutorial which should be used in preference as found in this official list

Let's hope the pattern making capabilities are at the forefront for the devs this coming year. I hate to admit that the AI for iPad has some nifty ways of making them and also a very intuitive radial repeat function.
