How do I join two curves with straight lines in affinity designer?

Here is a screenshot of the curves separated:separated curve segments

This is what I end up with when I join nodes and close the path. I would like to connect with straight lines only.

    Hi. Welcome to GDSE. I don't use Affinity Designer, but you could adjust the Bézier curve handles, since these generally work the same in all vector software.

First, select both the points/node using the Node Tool, (shortcut is A). Then click on the Convert to Sharp option from the context toolbar. See the below image for reference.

Hope this works out for you.
