Hello, I've used Coreldraw  before and after testing Affinity Designer I see there is some features i think would be great to have in  AD. I bought Affinity Publisher and i would love to add Designer to it.

 

1- Smart fill tool.
2- Virtual segment delete.
3- 2-point line.
4- Beizer.
5- B-spine.
6- Polyline.
7- Connector tool.
8- Text effects: warp, skew, distor, perspective, etc..

Does any of these features in the roadmap?

Thank you

Affinity has deleted all roadmaps, so it's not clear what will be added first and which features later. but most of this great CorelDRAW features will for sure be added over the next few years. you can see the old roadmap here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/91619-why-did-serif-delete-the-entire-roadmap-thread/& .

Best regards :)

 6- Polyline.

In Designer (and the other Affinity apps for that matter) you can create lines and polylines using the pen tool.  

If you look at the context toolbar when the pen tool is selected, there are several modes that you can choose from.  In the "normal" pen mode, you can create lines and polylines by clicking at each end point without dragging.  There is a separate "line" mode with which you can drag to create individual lines, and a "polygon" mode in which you can drag individual segments of the polyline/polygon.

This is already there, but only for left-to-right scripts.

Shadows are added as a layer effect: select the layer (object) you want to apply the shadow to, click the "fx" button on the layers panel, select "Outside Shadow", turn it on and adjust to taste.

Block Shadow (or Long Shadow) is something diferent from a regular "Outside Shadow".

So its more like: 13-Complex scripts and RTL support.

But there is also alot of LTR languges that are not supportet corectly, for examples look here:

The only ”tool” I miss is Warping, everything else is not needed in my life ;-)

If I look at the graphic artist I know using Affinity Designer they make incredible vector art with the tools present...

It may be other tools & features missing, but, just now we just have to wait for more, meanwhile we use what we have!
