About This Class

In this class you will learn about the new features and improvements for the Pen Tool in Affinity Designer from version 1.7 and prevalent in 1.9

This is an add-on class to the previous "Learn to Use the en Tool in Affinity Designer" where you will learn how the new pen and node tool features will make it even easier than it was drawing anything.

The ideal student should have some familiarity with the Pen Tool in Affinity Designer. Taking first the previous class on the pen tool is recommended, although not necessary if you already know how to use it.

It will be covering new icons, user interface visual cues, new features and an exercise to put the lessons in practice.

Do not hesitate asking me about any doubt or comment on this class in the community section.

1. Intro: Hi and welcome to this class. Where you going to learn about all the new features and updates for the pencil? In affinity? Designer version 1.7 This is an ad own or up the class. So the ideal students scenario would be something like You already have some familiarity with a pencil in affinity descended 1.6? Or that you took my other class. Remember, use the mental infinity designer. So if you haven't or you don't have immunity to go ahead and take. So now let's start and hope you learn a lot and whatever you have doubts or questions or whatever, ask me. I'm here. 2. Pen Tool Icons from 1.7: So here it is the new affinity designer one thought seven latest person well before we were working with the person Want out. Six. I am keeping both versions in this class in order to show you some off the differences that you're gonna find. So let's start with a new Pento icons, which formally you can see they were only five. Now we have eight honestly, in order to learn how to just the mental. I don't think that's need to know eight and everyone off the seconds, but it's always nice to know. So that's why I prepared this graphic where you can see which one's changed. Just cosmetically, which ones are new? Which ones remain the same, but tanks, functionality and which ones are exactly the same they used to be. So let's start now with the first icon, which is the negative start, which now has an asterisk while before hot only across. What is thus is giving you the visual cue that you're about to start drawing now. Once you place it the first note, he changes to something different. One of the new icons you're going to find in the new person off affinity designer is this one here. This play in this little plus symbol, it communicates area that you can place a new note when drawing of a C car or segment. We're going to see it here. And as you can see, we have always starting little liken. Now, as we go, you see these plus simmer as we go alone. It keeps displaying it with us. Before it was just a stand alone. Ben, I've gone with no symbol attached to it. Let's go now with another one off the new icons, which is this one displaying kind of like an asterisk with a circle around it. It conveys area that you're hovering over a segment or carve note when no notes are selected. Meaning that well, the first thing you're gonna do is trays your scarf. In the moment you touch for me, you're going to see it. As you can observe any off the notes are selected. So if I hold it over your gonna be seen thesis, I could now say I select these one and I hope it of it again. You are not seeing it in any off them. So everything you see this icon you know you're free to keep going, drawing a different path if we have the selected, for example, or any of the notes, and we want to go in. As I said, you are attached to the same path you were before. There is this thing that I would like to remark because it's a slightly different in the new person for affinities. And while you are tracing with a pencil, you see here I have a note selected that I'm going to the touch the pencil from now. If I could go in, I trace another path. What if I now want toe reattach my pinto to this path here? Well, I have two possibilities. One would be selecting the note and coming back to the mental. I can keep going, but just look that if I touch again and I click on it, my kerf now is separated is the touch from this first piece, you can see here where it's clearly to see because it's not marked. You see that is the touched. Whereas before, if we were working with a pencil when I touch and I come here now again, select the first segment and with a pencil, I could click on it and he was joined to the first portion off the path. So how do I do this in the new version for affinity designer? Well, the only thing you have to do please. As I said, selecting that note the last year traced going back to the pencil, you can keep going. Or you can also temporarily activate your no tool with command and creaking on it. Now the segment is going to be just one. Be sure to have this clear, because all the while says, I say you're gonna be creating two different segments like this. Okay, so that's a slight difference that it's important to know how it works Now, on the other hand, if one often not in your basi a car or segment are selected, what you gonna be seen? This play is this little icon with a plus symbol and a circle around it. So we're gonna check it. We're gonna go over with a pencil over one of the notes, and as you can see the place symbol with a circle just because we have these ones selected and over this one, it's always intimidate notes obviously not in the 1st 1 not in the last one. Now we know we can keep going, drawing with no problem. Now let's see one of those icons that formerly existed, which is this one, the active and now works slightly in a different way. So before we were drawing and we would see this active icon all over the place as we were drawing, what it does now is slightly different. So we activate the mental and we start drawing. You can see we see this playing the little plus I can't we saw before. So what are we gonna find? This icon with no symbol attached to it will only in the cases when one of our notices selected are also several of them. And it's going to be displaying only in the last and first notes. This is also telling me that I keep drawing with no problems. I'm attached to the car now, another one off their icons. That change is likely. The functionality is this one with a little bar below it. Formerly in the previous affinity designer version, we could see this plane while we're hovering over any note when we select and We could also see this play when we hope over the last smooth note we would have in a segment in order to turn it into shop. Now, in the new version, these changes is slightly, and we are only going to see this icon when we hold over a selected note, and we can obviously also click on it to turn it into a sharp note. Now, for the last two, they work exactly the same as they did the cost. Know that you're gonna see every time you press and hold at option in your keyboard. You go over a note, and if it's a small, it's going to transform it into sharp. And if it's sharp, you can always present hold at our option Intercable and then dragging with your mouse. You can give it 100 that will be 11 handle in the direction off your next segment. If I go now here, my segment is gonna go like so last the close path works us. It always it. Which is this plane? The information for you to close the path from the last note you placed into the 1st 1 so you can see there I click any closest 3. Node Tool Icons from 1.7: Let's see now the new tool icons, just as it happened with their new Penta, likens some off them are exactly the same to exactly the same. They look exactly the same, some at some new functioning like the Notre. For example. In this case, some bring new features, and some are simple visual cues that will help you out understanding what's going on while you chew. So the 1st 1 we're going to go through is there no tool that works exactly the same as it did before. But it also acts now a new function, which is that now you can use it as a marquee for not selection When dragging over the notes, Let's see how it works. So this new function works as follows. Before we could just click in shift track over the notes we wanted to select. Now we have an extra option, which is having all the notes that site clicking out in your keyboard, holding it. You can select with a marquee selection tool, which is pretty convenient if now I want to add another one from another place I present hold out while I also press shift and I'm gonna have the three of them I chose to select. And basically what it is is just a new way off doing things. Nothing changes just more possibilities. Now for the next four icons thes ones you see in black here. Meaning they do exactly the same as they did before. They look exactly the same. I'm gonna explain anything about this because I splendid in my other class about the pencil , wants nothing. For example, just one little thing that got a bit improved. This one here they transform someone and at you know, if you see now activating the pencil while you go over them segment you traced, you can see FIS perpendicular line that is telling you exactly the point. You are nuts. Before we didn't have this. Now we have it. I think it's cool to have it because, well, it's another visual cue. So just saying that about this. Let's go now and see one of the new features. This one here, you're gonna see the no tool with a little circle below it. This is a notes selection tool use is a modifier, which is the out or option in your keyboard to work as a note selection tool on a selected core or segment. So what this means is that is related exactly to what we saw in the no tool that created this marquee. So let's see how it works, because it does pretty much the same. What, Just in a different way, President Holding out or option in your keyboard, you can now click on your compass to select the notes unit. Now, if I want to select this one, for example, I could just drop this like so or truck here, like so I don't need to press any key is just with the mouse. And I can also get read off some off the corners, for example. I want to this, like this one. I click here and it just lets go because he's one catty selected to again drug and have it selected. And that's basically it. Now for this new icon. What we have is just a new visual cue that we didn't have before. Nothing changes is just that. Now, if you have your, um, handles here now you're gonna see when I manipulated it appears. So now I can move him like I want, and you're gonna see these new icon showing up until you You're manipulating a handle. And finally, the last off new features for the notable is this too. I confusing Here. One is the Notre with two overlapping squares, and the other one is and the no till with just one square. I put them together because obviously they work together. What this is going to be the wind is copy in one note from a segment or a path into another segments. Note. I'm gonna show you what? This Thus, basically, you see here, these two are pats, and I'm going to select this one. I'm going to drag it into another note from another path and you're going to see here this too overlapping squares. Important thing is now two don't move it and stay there. And now you see the other. I can I was talking about so from two notes, you wait there and this is copying the two notes into one. Well, if you wonder what this is good for, just imagine this is a curve that is very different to this one. Now I want to just get it exactly like the one on top. Select both of them. I come here. Weight some seconds. Take these one again way for some seconds. And we have this portion off the tooth. That's exactly the same. And this is basically what this new feature is the win. 4. Pen Tool 3 New Modes: So what I'm going to talk about now must be really good news for some few, especially if you're not very experienced with pencil. And that's a few years to illustrator. So basically affinity. The Senate comes with three. That's so basically affinity center comes with three new months and we're going to see them in this lesson. So the first thing we're gonna do is selected that pencil. So selecting it, the first thing you're going toe notice is that we have some more icons in the contextual menu for more and for snap. So here we have three new accounts, and here we have two new icons while one off the former house these appeared. Which is this one Here. Snap off. Your friend ALS has disappeared, but we have these two new ones. We will be talking about them in the correspondent lesson. But now we are going to see their first new off the modes in the pencil. So I'm going to select on the 1st 1 preserve selection when creating new curves. So I agreed on it, and I come to my compass and I trace my first path. Now if I de selected in last note in order to create a separate new path, which I'm gonna do right now. If you know this, both off them remain selected. You can also see it here in the layers panel, whereas before we would just Tracy's stopped racing a new path and only the last one would be selected. No. If you wonder why this is useful, I can tell you that. Just imagine we come to their no tool and want to snap the notes off both off the cat's. Let's select one of their snapping options and see that as I go moving it, he gets snapped to the notes without me having to select the previously created path in the previous person, you wouldn't have this possibility. So you would have to manually select your former path or any of the segments in order to It's not them. They use a weight. Okay, so this version a loss for quick snapping. So you faster basically. Now instead, off these two segments, imagine you have a complex illustration. This option is really convenient, so you don't have to be selecting every portion, airy segment in order to snap. Let's go over now, the next new option we have for the modes in the pencil called Add new car to selected cars . Object. First off, I'm not going to select it just to show you how it waas working in the previous Russian you can see in Quetta have a segment, and I have this segment here in the layers panel. Now, if I let go of it and I traced a new segment, this segment is going to be stuck, right? A bulb in the lace panel. Now, if I select this option here, what affinity design it is gonna be doing now is treating it as part off the same car, even though it's separated from it. So I let go of this. I trace new segment. They're separated, but they are included in the same scarf in the layer span it Obviously, if you want to move them, it's gonna move them together. And now, if you want to get rid off one off the segments, you're gonna have to get rid of it by going all over the notes. And now you can get rid off one of them pity, commitment. And now let's go over the last off the new modes for the pencil rubber band mode, which, if you don't select it, see how you don't see how the next carve is going to be. Just imagine I'm here now. Well, I imagine I'm gonna If I don't drug, I'm gonna have. So I'm saying like this. What's if I activated? This is very cool, because this is telling me what my next segment is gonna look like before I even flick cool , huh? Especially for people used to it because they had it in other APS or people that still don't have much experience with a pencil medical. So this is what the rubber band thus 5. The Node Transform Menu: now in this lesson, we're going to see the new transform contextual menu for their no tool, which you can see in here. As you can see before, we didn't have other than combat action and snapping. Why now we have combat action. There's not been here, plus the transform. Let's go with the first off the icons, which is the transform mode. What this is going to be doing is allowing you to say you select two notes. I have it now. The activated. If I activated, you're going to see it creates a bounding box that is going to allow me to transform these two notes, and only these two knows that I had selected. That's one. Now if I want to rotate, you see them both bean affected by the bounding box now having mine that I selected two notes from these foreign segments. But I could also select two notes from the same segment and effect only both off them. Now, as you can see here, we have several options that are posted out or great out. Now have in mind that this is, say, the ruling option for the transform panel that once you activate is going to make thes other options available. That means that all these are dependent on this main option. So say, as we have before, we have this activated and we have our bounding box affecting this to note I selected. You can see now that I'm moving in the rotation center, it's right in there, media. Okay, Now see what happens when I activate these second icon, which is enabled transform origin. You see here the original center, which makes it move as we saw before. But now I just think that I can, for example, put it here and see how their rotation origin is going to be down. What? I placed it. I can also move it somewhere far away and get visas. My rotation origin. You see how it's now moving around it in a very different way. Let's now the third option, which we know because in the former version we had something similar not in here because they say that exists, but somewhere else. In their up is the height selection while dragon and what is that's basically see Now, if I move this, you're going to see the bounding box. But if I click on it. This is going to disappear, not because it's not there. It's just because we are not seeing it. But only as we move. Once you let go, it appears again we're going to see now the next off the options for the transform contextual menu for they know to You have to think of all these new tools as an enhancement toe work. Better your notes to help you out while you work with them. So again, I have to activate the main one, which is the time for mode I can. Now these ones come available and this is the one I want to talk about. Now show alignment handles. So when this option is selected, what is going to be doing is this plane alignment handles at the center and edges off the selected object? What does this mean? Well, just basically this you see here what it's called the Alleman handles on the edges off my McDonough and on the central part of it, you can also see that if I hover over any off this alignment handles, they display a guy line. Okay, this guy line is going to tell me where the center off my square or move. My rectangle is going to be a same movie. See now how it displaces it in these gays. Now I pull up, it pulls up. Same with this one I pulled down. So the top edge off my rectangle is going to be down where I landed and the same for this. You can also see that if I select both off them now, they're Lyman handles our place for the whole of the group. Now it's going to work in the same way. Just that. Now, if I, for example, but this one central alignment handle here, what is going to be the wind is making the centers off both off my rectangles together. Align with this guide, Mexico. Now, if I, for example, So like this one and drug obits both off my left edges off the rectangles are gonna be align with this guy line like so. So basically, what they're doing is dragging the hundreds to position the center or edges off selected object in line with his guide. But let's see now how it would be if we have this path here and we select these two notes se Khobar about this to align the two notes together. Or I can just do it to the top, or I can just do it to the left. Their border both align and so forth now than exception. Is this one here? Selection box from curves. Now, basically, what this is doing we have here the scarf. If we select se these notes here, you have these bounding box. Okay, how if I click in it, you're going to see no difference. What if I have all of them selected and I have this bounding box here and I have this part off their path that is left outside them bounding box? Well, five leaking. This option now is going to be including every part of it. Now, obviously, you have to think of all these options as working together as I said before. So this, for example, if I connect now, the transform origin might transform ordinance right in the center. But if I wasn't using this might transform origin would be somewhere else. And this is why they work together. And you have to take into account what you're doing with one toward with the other. Now let's take a look at the last off the options this one here called cycle selection box , which is, if you take a closer look a little bit detached from the group. Also, if you don't have the selected, these one is not great out. What? Um, actually, if you don't have the selected, you are really not going to do much in here in this transform menu for anyway. Sit some. You I d system also these tools. So you're gonna find somewhere else. So maybe that's why they decided to just leave it like that. In any case, um, that's not important. Part important part here comes when I so like this and I selected them transform mode in order to be able to see the bounding box or, as they call it, here, the selection box. See what, um, these cycles selection box is going to do now If I move on angle like so you see the selection box of the bounding box going along with younger say I want to have it back to the art center position that I heard at the very beginning. But that's why I have these tooling here. I click on it and it goes back to the original position. He also get this, told it, telling you that you are selecting within the bone race off the selected notes. So that's another business, que. That is going to be telling you. Selected not bones in the bounding box. Okay, so that's about it for this new transform conduction menu for the Notre Basically I cities ascending Huntsman working with your notes and with your pencil. If you don't get too overwhelmed by the amount off tools affinity designer is getting, I think it all makes very much good sense. And your life trying is gonna be much is here, so I'll take advantage of it and let's see the next lesson. 6. New Snapping Options: in this lesson, we're going to see the new auctions for snapping in a Finnish designer 1.7 as you. For sure, no dependable on the notable are absolutely interrelated, meaning that one needs the other to work together. So the mode it's only specific for the pencil but combat action and snapping our contextual menus that tape off share combat action snap. So we're going to see the two new icons that we find in here. You can see we have 12 and three and slightly touched. We have these two inversion one that six. We would have only four of them off which this one, the last one was touched. And it has somehow disappeared. At least the icon can will be found to be integrated into this new I can hear perform construction snapping. Now let's see the 1st 1 align handle positions using snapping options so we're going to click on it. The first thing you have to know is that this option needs the snapping options from global snapping. So there is this global snapping which is placed here and there. Is there pen and notable snapping. Now we're going up. Expand this comma bone. And we have all these options here. We're going to enable its and the option that you need to have checked is this last one here snapped toe optic geometry. So if you have it like this unchecked, go ahead, check it. And now you're gonna be able to work with this. So the first thing I'm going to do is select my two segments and I'm going to to take one off them notes. I'm gonna graph one off its hunters, and I'm going to snap to the other path to the other segment. Now take a look. How, As I move this handle, it is going to snap into the path I am passing over. You can see in there this yellow line, it indicates that I'm snapping. Obviously, we have the global snapping typical actions vertical and horizontal with green for the vertical and great for the horizontal. But now we also have the option to snap the hunters into another path, like so you can also snap it to an old you can see there. No, it's not been past snapping. So just remember that thes option needs the global snapping activated in order to work. Right now, we've seen one of the options he works with, which is snapped toe upto geometry. Now there's another possibility with this snapping option walking again together with the global snapping. We're going to show the combo, and that's before we worked with us not to object geometry. Now we're going to check, snapped a great and snap to guides. As you can see here, I've prepared a great that I changed color because, well, I wanted it to be visible. And I also have here these guide will you already can see how things are snapping with a pencil. Let's go now and select one off notes. Now we have here the handle and now you're going to see that also, the handle is snapping to both Negrete and the guides. Now we're going to see the second option, which is performed construction snapping. You can work either with both off them activated or any of thes two activated. Just remember that this one is only going to be working with any of these options. Okay? Or you could just work with this one activated. These perform construction snapping. That's not need this option here. So What this is going to do is allowing you to manipulate your handles once you already have the notes in your path placed. Now, I prepared this graphic in here construction snapping. And if they say this option offers additional accuracy and symmetry, placing handles over a great or guide once note have been positioned. And these are all the options that you are going to see. A special queues telling you when you're hundreds are snapping against each other, being parallel, creating 90 degree snapping, creating perfect triangles, etcetera. Now, I took this help from the affinity designer up and well, you cannot know this asso file if you want to have it at hand just to, you know, make yourself a better idea off how this could help you while you're throwing. Now coming back to our original pats, I'd like to show you about these little intersection two lines using here, crossing each one off the handles. This is going to be telling you that both handles are the same length as you can see as I go pulling in, making one of them shorter. The two allies disappeared. However, now you can see two purple little arrows telling you that both off the hundreds are parallel. We can see this option here, but you have the two purple arose, and it's telling you that you can snap to parallel control handle. I think these options are really very useful, especially if you're trying to do graphics that are really needing to be accurate, a technical drawing or when you're doing letter in this is really a big step forward. 7. Point Transform Tool: we're going to talk now about one off the new tools we have here under this little shit brown you see, in the no tool. If we click, you're going to find the point transform tool. You can either select it here or why you are in any other tools. Say the mental, the no tool that move tool. You can press f your keeper, and you will have it activated. So basically what this stool is going to allow us to do is transforming the object not only with regards its own geometry, but also that off another object. So with a point transform tool selected were going Toe Creek on the object. And you're gonna see how these transform origin is gonna be in relationship with another point that I choose to rotate from. You see the relationship between them and not only I can rotate, but also I can Reese ice. Now, if I add another note to this shaping here, go back to my tool and I choose to pull from this one, their relationship is gonna be between there transform origin and their point I am pulling from. But not only that, if I know selected other object and you can see here the transform origin, which is gonna be always them Point. My objects are going to rotate around when I select my first object. And I pulled from any off this point. Say, for example, this last one we created You're gonna see their relationship being created between the two objects and that the red backed anger is moving around their rotation origin off my second object. Now, if we want to try this with text, we can also take advantage off the stool in the same way we activated. And we are going to pull from any of the points. Say this one here. And you see the relationship created between their transform origin and the point we are pulling from also for Reese icing. It's pulled from another one. Now we also have a confection menu for the stool. This I can we already know how selection. Well, dragon, we already know this napping. Let's see what the text basically mold. Thus so let's activate it. We see these line being created here before he wasn't. Now basically what is going to be doing? Is that the baseline for the text is going to be the one that is going to be in relationship with their transform origin. So now if we pull from here or from here, you see their relationship between them. 8. Final Exercise: Create a Perfect Circle with the Pen Tool Manipulating Handles: Okay, so now we're going to do an exercise in order to practice some of the things we've seen in this class. So you can don't know this template that I left in the resources for this class. And as you can see, we're going to be using agreed, and we're going to be using guidelines ends. What we're gonna be doing is creating a perfect circle like this is it may look simple, but it's not because in this case, unlike in my previous class for the pencil, we are only going to be used in the mental, and we're going to be working, manipulating their handles, and only that's I don't want you to use at all the corner tool, which, if you took my former class, you know, it helps a lot to make some bumpy or sharp notes into super smooth notes. It works really well, but I would say these new options we have now for 1.7 it's much more accurate thesis options. This new snapping options are exactly created for doing this kind off super super accurate shapes the best way you can. So because this is an exercise where we're supposed to learn things and practice things. We already so in this class I need you to just use the mental and handled for the notes. If you were in them real world, you would be doing your circle like this for us. I say we are now learning new stuff. So go ahead, Donald them file and it starts, so I activates my pencil. Now we're going to start, and I'm going to click in this first. Know for sure. I don't want it to be shop, so I need to drug a bit. And now you see it's smoke. Now. Another important thing is to quick shift and I'm going to pull until, say, here I'm not really caring now about the length off these hundreds too much because what I really want to do is then manipulating them in order to do this exercise. So we're going to place the first note and for sure you don't want it to be sharp. So after clicking on your commerce press on shift and pulled to the sites, it doesn't really mother how long they are now, as long as they are the same length. So just keep pulling and president shift and let's just leave them like So now we will have time later on to tweak them, because this is this exercise is about that. As you can see, I also have the rubber one activated because, well, it makes things easier to be seen. So go ahead, activity. If you want or not, I sometimes use it sometimes not. Okay, so let's just do the 2nd 1 and it's going to be exactly the same. I'm going to creek and press and shift and pull down. Now I'm going to try to make them the singling asked the Handles for the first note, which means I should have stopped approximately here. I'm going to great the next note, which is going to be sharp, but I'm going off course to creek on it. And while pressing shift, I'm going to pool he's handers to this length approximately again. Now I'm going to do the same with the next one. I think so. On going to come up here and you can see this playing the little circle below the pencil, telling us that we're going to be close in our path and I prayed on it and I don't need to track because I have all the hundreds already created. Okay, So as you can see, this does not look like a perfect circle. And, well, it's all about it because now we're gonna person command, and we are going to select all of the notes. Now, what you can see in here is that all of these 100 ALS all this play in the little. But I'm going to uncheck this for the time being. So it doesn't get in our way. They are displaying here the little perpendicular single line, meaning that this handle and this handle are the same life. Say, for these two, Same for this to say for this too, if you remember, as I showed you, What we're looking for here is getting all the hundreds to display those single perpendicular allies, but also the double, because that means that thesis and these are the same. But so are these and these and these and these and these which will make for a perfect circle. So let's go ahead and try to show that how we breast command we select family. And now let's go and manipulate or handles. So you can see one of the construction snapping options showing here for perfect Rangel. Let's just leave it about that. And let's do it suddenly the same with this one. Which means I have to pull up until around here. In the moment I see appearing the two lines, that will be the point. Where I have to stop is to start pulling like so you go by leader, it's here. No this'll one first roughly and then fine tuning. Okay, so the same for thes one. As you can see, if we remove obits the guidelines and agreed we are fairly close to a perfect circle. Quite good. Still, as they say, what we need is all these perpendicular lines, this plane within all their handles. So let's get working. Don't forget to press shift to constrain your hungers you will get then this plane like we have these two same length Perfect. Now president shaved. But under the same for these one. These two also no constraining with shift we have face to display in. No, we have these two this plane, but we're still missing that same life for the hundreds. Own one single note. So I have to keep a Justin all my handles until they appear. This is the end a matter off, just in them together and working together with all of them in order to get your perfection . So now we get rid off the highlands and the great, and we have a perfect circle this When I created myself and this one I created, I took from the primitives. And as you can see, if I activated now they are basically well, except for a bit in here, almost exactly the same. So this is basically the exercise. I need you to go in our that the work manipulating your handles to get a perfect circle and get just to them and familiarize yourself with manipulating them and a new visual piece we have. And of course, ask me whatever did up you have because, as I say, I'm here to help 9. Final Words: Okay, so we're them. We've seen all the new features for the mental, the new icons, all the new tools related to mental and notable. And I hope you now know a little bit more. And you understand it now. Better now. Do not hesitate to ask me whatever you need, Abby. Very happy to answer toe any of your doubts. So thank you very much for taking this class once more from the bottom of my heart. And I will see you in my next plus.
