Hi ljfm :) 

There's no direct option to make this kind of shape in Affinity, however it's possible by changing the stroke settings.

I've drawn a rectangle that measures 4.5 x 3.5mm and applied a dash line style to this. I then used the following settings, which provided me the below result-

I hope this helps!

Thanks a lot. @Dan C 

Helps for this measure, but, is not similar to my example and what happen if i need another height or width? I think that this tool need improvements because take too much time for do it as you want.

Maybe i can go fast if the decimals in the input fields, can be changed with the mouse wheel. 

After all, thanks.

I understand, it does require a little bit of 'trial and error' in its current state to achieve this effect, I'd recommend creating a Feedback post for our devs to see and consider changing this in the future :)

The fields can be edited using the mouse wheel, but this will always increase in increments of 1, not decimals.

No for all fields. Enter e.g. 2 into the second field from the left and move the scroll wheel down. Next value is 1, but after that not 0 but 0,05.

Erm... hold Control (on PC, so Command on Mac?) to scroll by 0.1

Should work in every box throughout Affinity suite.

This is due to the fact the second field here cannot be 0, therefore it defaults to its lowest value possible, in this case 0.05

I'll be totally honest - I wasn't aware of that before now! Thanks Aammppaa :D

I found an entry about the shift-key and ^(ctrl) in the German Help file at Transforming Objects. Never been sure what ^(ctrl) for Mac user means other than alt/option (⌥) probably?

I believe this is related to nudging objects using the arrow keys, not editing values with the scroll wheel - but thank you :)

A Mac keyboard has 4 modifiers (5 including fn) -

Shift - image.png

Control - image.png

Option/Alt - image.png

Command (CMD) - image.png

All of which are found in the bottom left hand corner of the keyboard (at least in the UK English variant) and Affinity utilises all of these modifiers across the app!
