    Fair question.

    Just trying to help and clarify - As you probably already know, all that Illustrator's shape builder tool essentially does is make boolean operations faster and more convenient.

    I don't think a shape builder tool in Lunacy would necessarily provide non-existent capabilities, BUT it could greatly improve vector shape construction tasks right inside the program, making users less reliant on their primary vector program. A big deal because copying paths from Illustrator directly into Lunacy doesn't work (pasted object is rasterized).

    From my own experience, I still remember what a big improvement it was to my Illustrator workflow once the shape builder tool was added. It made a very tangible difference.

  • They aren't actually. A shape builder tool and/or a knife tool would allow me to produce shapes in two seconds that will need significantly more work using masks and Boolean operations. Do that few dozen times a day and then if becomes a very important time saver to have.

    In fact my lookout for an alternative to illustrator knife and shape builder in a free vector app is what lead me to discover Lunacy :) ...

    Are masks and boolean operations are not enough for your case?
