Pencil tool: closing paths? continue path?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

It's been almost three years since i posted this suggestion. I've found it in the old feedback & suggestions forum.
So here it is again as a stronger request & as a much needed improvement:

I'm talking about the Pencil Tool in Affinity Designer.

1.
Is it possible to automatically close a path after you have drawn a...circle...let's say? So basically I'm asking AD to snap to closing the path for the Pencil tool.

2.
When I use the pencil tool and stop drawing with my tablet there's a problem resuming the shape that i've already created. You just simply cannot continue the path.

Cheers!

Check the "Sculpt mode" introduced in 1.7. From the Pencil Tool Help:
 

Quote

Sculpt—When enabled, any selected pencil stroke can be reshaped or continued; the former by drawing a new start and end point anywhere along the pencil stroke, the latter by drawing from either stroke end node.

Sorry but there isn't currently a way of closing a shape on creation when using the Pencil tool. You can however close the shape using sculpt after.

This will be improved in a future update.
