[ADe] Smart guide distance visualization (implemented)

Recommended Posts

I would like to add my approval to this suggestion.  Showing the distance between objects makes life infinitely easier.  After having used two different implimentations of this functionality (fireworks & keynote) I notice it's absence in other applications.

This would be a win for many users.

Yeah, that's Sketch in this GIF, and I really think Affinity should inspire themselves from this app ! It's got the best distances tool available today. That's also why I won't use Designer for iconography and stuffs, and stick with Sketch for now.

I encourage kids to go ahead and play on my lawn. I mean, how else can I make sure the death-traps work?

All those +1's.   ;)

 

It is in the plan... snapping and layout improvements will be ongoing.  I'm going to be doing some work on it once I've done with my current tasks.

Sorry - not done much on this yet.

 

There are a raft of improvements I'm making to the core tools.  The aim to add better scalability to our tools - let you edit guides and grids in any appropriate tool, etc. This is taking longer than I hoped as I have other things on the boil (like PSD support and Lightroom workflow).  Once this is done, I'll look to adding these other features.

Plus one for this feature, Adobe Fireworks had it nailed pretty well if you want another example.

 

At the moment I find myself using squares to measure distances :<
