Thanks for the replies. I just realized there was a trial version, so I'm trying it out now. My first impression is there definitely is a learning curve, but I've been able to figure out a few things already.
Hello all, first time poster here. Like probably most here I've been using Adobe software. It's what I was trained on and what I know best. I only recently became aware of Affinity and have been tempted to switch over. Not having to pay a monthly subscription is a BIG incentive for me. BUT I'm hesitant to have to learn new software since I'm so used to Illustrator. So my question is how hard is it to transition from Illustrator to Designer? Is the learning curve steep? Any feedback would go a long way in helping me decide if Designer is right for me or not. Thanks!
