    IMAGE TRACING + Expand Image and Texture Category Brushes For Affinity Designer
    Hello everyone,
    You may not know but Inkscape just released v1.0 version today ( including native Mac version). 
    This is an example of how we can use Inkscape to fill the gap of 2 functions we need in Affinity Designer for the time being:
    1. Tracing Bitmaps -> Trace Bitmap in Inkscape + Save as SVG and edit in Affinity Designer
    2. Expand Image and Texture Category Brushes -> Export Affinity Designer object as PNG which has a texture brush  + Open the PNG in Inkscape + Trace Bitmap + Save SVG + Edit in Affinity Designer.
    I am not sure how it will work with complex brushes but I tried few and I am very happy with the results.
    Please find the attached files which explain the above.
    Hopefully this will help you get finer output in print and give you more confidence in using texture brushes in Affinity Designer for your professional work.
    All the best,
