  1. Is there a resource somewhere to show how to do things in Affinity Designer that I'm used to doing in DrawPlus?


    For example, I just found out there is no trace feature.  But how about PhotoLab and Cutout studio?  


    And I am used to pressing ctrl-x to enable the crop tool which now does not have a hotkey.


    While I am interested in the answers to these specific questions,  I don't want to have to come to the forum for every DrawPlus missing-or-equivalent feature I run into.


    Is there a help file or video or somesuch that has all these.  It would make it much easier for DrawPlus users to cope with this Mac-inspired "improvement".  Back in the day, Microsoft offered help to ease WordPerfect defectors over to msWord.  That's the kind of thing I'm looking for since the jump from DrawPlus to Designer seems to be an equivalently wide span.


    I just purchased Designer and I am trying to decide whether to take advantage of the 14-day return and need some help.  I don't want to have to use Designer + DrawPlus (to fill in the gaps) very long.



  2. In every other windows program I use, the View menu is 2nd or 3rd from the left (File - Edit - View  OR  File - View).





    In Affinity Designer it is closer to the right on the toolbar.  Is this some kind of Mac standard?  Is there a logical reason for this positioning?






    I found it confusing.  Can it be moved to a more windows-standard position?  Can something like a profile be developed so a user could make Designer look more like DrawPlus?






    Having joined the beta somewhat late, I did not realize that maintaining windows standards are not very high priority (as discussed here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/22296-location-of-view-menu-not-windows-standard/&p=104487). 






    I have been using Serif products since PagePlus 3.  I don't plan on every owning a Mac.  I can understand the philosophy of maintaining mac-based look-and-feel for multi-platform design shops.  But I don't think it is too unreasonable to expect some kind of continuity for us longtime Plus users.
