Switching over from Adobe because I really prefer the Affinity concept.
I got Photo, Designer and Publisher to do a full replace (and to show my support).
There's a bit to get used to, but more often than not it turns out great.
So far, I have only installed Photo (which will be my main program). Great software.
However, optical kerning is something I definitely miss. I'm actually surprised how much of a difference it really made. It's a huge time saver and it's quite annoying to spend so much extra time doing everything manually. I'm sure it might even be a deal breaker for some (I had the thought, but will remain hopeful).
Therefore, a massive +1 from me.
