I can snap a node to an intersection point, but I can’t snap the geometric center to an intersection point.

I believe this is one of the new snapping options in version 1.7 of the desktop app, so I expect it to be included when the iPad app is updated to version 1.7.

Hi Angelos58 :)

Could you please provide an example (a screen recording would be perfect) of the snapping you're trying to achieve? I can check this in the 1.7 beta for you!

No problem, unfortunately this isn't possible in the beta of Affinity Designer either, so I'll move this thread to Feature Requests now for our devs to see and consider!

@Dan C It is possible in 1.7 Beta, by using the Point Transform tool.

Thanks @Aammppaa, I completely overlooked the Point Transform tool! :$

I'm certain we'll be bringing the desktop 1.7 changes to iPad, so I hope to see this included in the next update @Angelos58 :)

Thank you for answer. Hope will be available for iPad version as soon as possible.

could you tell me how does it work in general?

Point transform allows for any combination of move (translate), rotate and scale, around one point, to a destination point.

Both source point and destination point can use any of Affinity's snapping options (grid, guides, geometry etc).

It is very versatile.

In my GIF…
The source point is the center of the yellow circle (but it could also be any of the 4 nodes that define the circle, or any other point).
You can see Affinity suggesting various snapping locations as I drag, including the intersection of the diagonal line and the blue circle.
Which snapping locations are considered is defined by the standard snapping options in the Snapping Panel.

The best way is just to play with it for a while so see what can be achieved - but iPad users can't do that quite yet :(
