  1. It would be a HUGE competitive advantage for AD if it had a usable charting feature (I don't consider AI's version usableā€”I pull my hair out every time I try to use it, and them I'm sad). The bar is low. Going through Publisher doesn't really make sense to me; designers build their graphics in AD or Illustrator, and they might not end up in layout publishing software. If you don't want to build tabling into the app, just allow import/link from Excel or Sheets. I tried AD a few years ago and really liked it but didn't stick with it due to numerous bugs. Assuming most of those have been tak
  2. +1 for the request for an automatic optical kerning option.
  3. +1 for the request for an automatic optical kerning option.
  4. +1 a tool like Illustrator's magic wand would be fantastic! It's something I use frequently. Their implementation is a little wonky, and doesn't seem to work on text. I could see Affinity making a cleaner, more robust, more reliable version.
  5. +1. Snapping candidates is a brilliant concept! But as OP mentioned, it is easy to bestow candidate status accidentally, and then impossible to revoke it (without designating a number of other candidates). Also: highlighting the first letter in a snap candidate text box is awkward. Can we not highlight the bounding box instead? Also: would love snapping for distance distribution, as Adobe has done for all their core design apps. (I'm not a Publisher user, so I'm not sure if it's there already.) For example, if I have three identical objects in a row, all 20px apart, and I create a 4th
  6. +1 for a "transform each" feature. I'm actually quite surprised this doesn't exist yet, especially considering Illustrator's rather poor implementation of this feature. This would be a huge workflow boost for many, and could be a great draw/differentiator!
