  1. As I said above, Adobe Illustrator is widely used by pattern cutters in the fashion industry. Was Illustrator made specifically for pattern cutting? No. But it does the job very well due to the tools it has, that why it's widely used. As Designer is 'supposed' to be an alternative to Illustrator I thought it would be able to do the same things. My mistake! But other people who are in other industries have also been asking for this feature, so it's not just an issue specific to pattern cutters.
  2. I strongly agree with all the above functionality requests. I checked the details of the most recent Designer update and it seems none have these requests have been added? Outside of dedicated pattern cutting software, Adobe Illustrator is the most widely used software by pattern cutters in the fashion industry to create patterns. My main reason for buying Designer was for pattern cutting, then I discovered it was really lacking in the features used for pattern cutting that Illustrator has! If Designer is trying hard to compete against Illustrator these features would get even more converts.
  3. I'm a newer user to Affinity. Been searching the forum for posts on pattern cutting/making and came across this one. It seems that being able to measure curves is still not a feature in Designer? I know people helpfully posted workarounds and alternatives to the OP posts, but this is a really needed feature for THIS software. Outside of dedicated pattern cutting software, Adobe Illustrator is the most widely used software by pattern cutters in the fashion industry to create patterns. My main reason for buying Designer was for pattern cutting, then I discovered this issue! If Designer is trying hard to compete against Illustrator this one of the features it really needs to implement.
  4. Hi there! I'm brand new to Affinity and purchased Photo and Designer over Black Friday. Originally trained as a photographer and have always used Photoshop. When I lost my job I lost my access to Adobe CC and couldn't afford my own personal CC subscription, so haven't done any personal work for a long while. Fast forward to this year and I have started a new career as a pattern cutter, so will be looking into using Designer to create sewing patterns.
  5. Hi, I'm planning to buy Photo and Designer this weekend and would like to know if it's better to buy through the App Store or direct from the website? Have any of the above statements changed in the last year due to recent updates etc? Also, what does sandboxed mean in this context? I'm on an up to date, Early 2015 MacBook Pro. Thanks.
