  1. I have now been creating more and more work professionally for our print shop and I found a few things that i would like to see added in to Affinity.

    1. Print settings saved each time you use it. I used Affinity to print a document today from the Mac and I changed my settings, page size, colors, etc. and then printed and it came out great. I went to print again and everything had reverted back to the original settings as when I was there the first time.

    2. Color Swatches. I would like to see an object that has a fill or a stroke, when selected, show the selected color they are filled with in the swatches. Right now it does not and is not clear unless you double click on the color in the top left of the swatch window. It's very easy to accidentally click on another color than the one you intend.

    thank you!


  2. In dialog boxes where one has to enter margins or bleeds or things of that nature for four sides gets a little tedious. Would it be possible that measurements for more than one thing could include a lock button so that you enter it in the first box and it applies automatically to all 4 boxes?

    Increase and decrease buttons would be very handy for any setting such as fonts, paragraph spacings, etc. Right now I am trying to make banners with large fonts but I cannot just click up and down (or SHIFT for 10 increase). I have to type it in manually or use one of the preset numbers, which is not enough.

    Thank you for listening and for the great software!

  3. Affinity Designer is fantastic. Not because I'm a great drawer or illustrator. I'm printing and prepress professional and in the past week I have had two times where it Illustrator or Indesign could not take an existing PDF and deal with the file right.

    Designer was able to bring in the PDF and let us alter it to get the vector logo out. I do this regularly but I usually don't get errors importing into Illustrator but I did on this one and Designer saved us.

    Today a font was not embedded in a PDF that someone created in Corel. We were able to install the font on the Mac, open the PDF in Affinity, adjust a little bit because the person did a poor job designing and resaved - the ad came out perfect!


    I'm looking forward to the page layout program with how well Designer is working.
