Missing Point Transform Tool on Designer PC :(

Recommended Posts

HI
I usually work in a mixed environment Mac, PC, iPad.
While working on a PC in Designer, I did not find a tool that I liked (on MAC and iPad), The Point Transform Tool.

Where is it hidden? Or maybe it's just missing!

Press F, the Point Transform Tool transformtool_lightui.png.a41bfb5905851719e90d58945828d3ea.png is nested with the node tool on the left menu.

Hi

I think help is common to both Mac and PC.
On the PC (Designer v 1.7.1.404 and beta 1.7.2.434) there is simply no icon!
I did not write that the tool does not work at all, only that it is missing!
The fact that pressing the shortcut "F" activates the tool and works! OK. But....
I think this is an bug! Hope only on my computer.

@Poziomka Have you tried View > Customise Tools... and dragging the Point Transform Tool icon on to the Tools bar

OK

Good idea with customize tools. 

I reset the tools and now I have an icon :)

Earlier I pressed F and did the transformation. The tool worked, only the icon was not changed.

Thanks

Hi USERNAME8000,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :) 
The Point Transform Tool can be accessed through the Designer Persona (second icon right below the traffic lights on the top left of the interface). You must have Affinity Designer installed to access its persona in Publisher.

yeah cool thank u. i just gonna stick with the "F" key function.

do you have any idea when the next update could be arriving?
