Hi folks – I’m on a Mac, so laptop-specific replies are appreciated.
In my old vector graphics program, I could extend a straight line by shift-dragging the anchor at the end. This was useful when a line had to go through a particular point, so I would end it there to ensure the location, but then extend from there to continue the path. This would extend the line, but not change the location or direction of the original line. I hope this makes sense.
Is there a similar method for doing this in Vectornator?
Hi @Monque honestly I don’t understand what’s your problem.
I advice you to take a look the Learning Hub - Vectornator and The Shape Tool - Youtube
Those links didn’t actually answer my question, but I figured it out.
Vectornator does exactly the same thing, I just had the wrong tool selected. I was using the path editing tool when I should have been using the selection tool (arrow).
I’am glad you solved your issue.
Yes. At the moment we don’t support the same functionality as AI but as you said, you can simply use the Selection tool to extend your path following the same direction.
I can recommend you to press
Shift while resizing so you can keep the proportions and the direction
I’m not doing anything too complicated – just simple illustrations for educational purposes. Vectornator suits my needs perfectly so far!
