    I allready own all of your products but I think it's a great initiative.
    Keep up the good work.

    Problem now is that most software is mature and less and less usefull upgrades will be implemented. Best solution for companies is the subscription model.

    Implementing a feature that doesn't meet the standards is usually not a good thing.
    People will complain about the quality produced.

    Mesh tool was allready on the roadmap. There is no roadmap on the fora anymore but they might be working on it.

    A professional using Vector Magic every day will make money by eliminating time and thus cost. In that respect it's not even that expensive. It is priced for pro's not for average users.
    Just like Photoshop is priced for pro's. If you make money with the tools, cost is relative.

    Don't act like you know more then a developer/designer.
    Not every workflow is the same and I don't have any problems. Either you change your workflow or deal with it.
    Not every user fault is a designer/developer flaw.

    Yes, but only for Illustrator.
    It's a plug-in for Illustrator from Astute Graphics.
     
    They make a bunch of really good Illustrator plug-ins wich will enhance functionality.

    Tourmaline got a reaction from JET_Affinity in Distort / warp feature affinity designer   
    There you go.
    Sorry, maybe it's just me but I don't get all the people "demanding" tools in a first edition that other developers took years to implement.
    Yes, it's nice to have but understand that implementing tools well costs a lot time and effort.
    You get a lot for the price the software costs and a lot of features are added for free. Some other developers will only "fix" things in a payed update/upgrade.
     
    There's so many people "demanding" new features that the problem is what to implement first. Everybody thinks their requested tool has priority...
     
    Just be reasonable...

    Most professionals will do a manual trace for logo's as it yields best results. I can image It might save time but with relatively complex logo's doing it yourself is always better then any trace program.

    Not only books, also a lot of magazines are made with DTP programs. And they don't need that feature.

    It has been requested for many times over and over  and it will probably be included in a version 2.0
    Serif stated that they will only include this function if it works the way they think it should work, as in effective tracing.
     
    For now you can use the tracing engine of Inkscape. It's quite good.
