I have been a die-hard Fireworks user from day one. I've been on the Adobe beta testing team for years / etc.
Since mac os 10.9.5, Fireworks (a dead product) is now completely unusable.
I made the switch to Affinity Designer yesterday. Love it.
Here's a few things that I used/depended on in Fireworks that I would love to see added to Affinity Designer.
- Copy elements and create a new document...new document should adapt the total height/width of the copied elements.
So if I copy 4 objects and I get a combined size of 640x980.. if I "Create a new document" it should default to the size of 640x980
Number one awesome feature of FW was the ability to have multiple pages in the document
- Ability to resize canvas
Make it easier to resize the canvas area than using the Document Setup
More to come...
- Export to HTML / Preview w/ Annotations
This is the best plugin for Fireworks (http://www.3revolutions.com/public/fw_annotations.php )
Work with the folks at http://www.specctr.com/ to make their plugin work with Affinity Designer
