Dimension lines / scaled drawings

Recommended Posts

I use drawing scales and dimension lines in DrawPlus X8 a lot and am currently assessing whether I can move to Affinity Designer. I have failed to find similar features so far. Are they hidden somewhere under new names, are they planned to be implemented in the future or are they simply missing from affinity products?

There is no facility for dimension lines and scaling, whether they are added later is open to speculation but for the foreseeable future I doubt it.

Is there a roadmap of future features available?
Yes – the current Affinity Designer roadmap is here and the Affinity Photo roadmap is here. Note all the features listed here will be made available in free 1.X updates.

Although I've just tried accessing the roadmap pages and I get an error page.

Have you tested those links recently? Neither one works for me. For both I get a message saying "We could not locate the item you are trying to view" with an error code.

Yes I posted the links after I tried them, I thought it may have been a temporary page down or something my end wasn't working but obviously it's neither.

The links need updating.

Note: seems they might be updating, tweaking the roadmap pages that is why they cannot be found. It would have been better to put up a holder page with info on what was happening like..."We are currently updating the roadmap pages, thank you for your patience."

I think it is that the roadmap pages have been removed, so there is more to it than just updating the links.

The roadmap pages have been MIA for ages! There’s been some quite lively discussion about the decision to hide the 1.x roadmap from public view.

The discussions in those two topics had become "quite lively" long before they were hidden, & much of it had become inflammatory. :(
