  1. I have to agree with you Jan. As I have said earlier, it seems, all of their work has gone toward the iPad version of AD and I would guess their next release: Publisher. I find it funny because I sit and watch all of the requests for updates and fixes, but nothing is happening. I wonder if they have too many irons in the fire for their workforce? They do have a good product for the price. but there is still a lot to accomplish for the people they are trying to reach.
  2. R C-R, I think that from past updates. I've been here from the very beginning and this has been the largest time period with no updates. But now I am glad to hear of some updates coming up.....
  3. Well, now I see why we haven't gotten an update (beta or regular) in the last few months. It looks like all of the work went to the New iPad Affinity Designer. Well, maybe, things will start happening with Desktop software again.

    Good to hear your opinion SrPx. I agree with a lot of what you are saying. Having an account with Autodesk does not mean you have to buy anything. Autodesk set the new version of Sketchbook 8.6 up to last in subscription for 100 years as of the end of this year. They say they will update....we will see on that. But you can download and save the execute file so you will always have it. I can still download the old version 6 and use it. But then, it doesn't have all of the new goodies. Krita looks like a good program. But for the Mac, it has been hit or miss. I've written on their forum and now we have a new programmer who is going to take it on for the Mac side. But there will be a learning curve. Clip Studio Paint is a great program. It has some very cool things one can do with a layer, among other things. But there has been a buzz going around about the forum going away. And if so, I don't know what will happen with CSP. And like I said earlier, I think Affinity Design has the best vector program going for the dollar. Everyone has different criteria for their way of working. That's what makes having all of the different resources helpful for each one of us. Have a great day!

    Alfred, It just ended up that way. I decided to try different programs to see how they worked for me. Believe me, when I say, I support a lot of different software's out there. I love Affinity Designer for vector work, but not for this. For this, I tried Affinity Photo, Photoshop, Clip Studio Paint, Metibang Pro, and Sketchbook Pro working with a Wacom Intuos 5 tablet. Photoshop had one of the best brushes and brush feedback (except for the cursor, I was always trying to find). But trying to zoom in and use a 3-pixel brush was not the best representation. Not to mention the rent payment. Metibang Pro (Free) had a slight delay in the brush stroke (with a few other flaws). Sketchbook Pro has always been one of my favorites programs, but I could see some of its limitations. It came down to Affinity Photo (great brushwork) and Clip Studio Paint. Affinity Photo still has some quirks going on with its layers I talked about this in another post. It cost me some loss of work (2 hours worth) the first time, and the second time I had something happen where I ended up with a pixel layer saying (pixel) 3 times in the layer. How that happened, I don't know. The layer has just got to be selected in the correct place or something else will happen. But I kept trying with Affinity Photo until I decided that Clip Studio Paint had just about everything I needed in an art program. Now, this is just my opinion. Everyone has a different way of painting and drawing. CSP fit me more. But I will keep watching and trying AP. It is a very good program that I hope, will replace Adobe PS completely one of these days.

    This drawing/illustration was done using Affinity Photo and Clip Studio Paint. Hope you enjoy.

    Beautiful. Doing it all in vector is amazing.
  12. Interesting, thanks MEB. Things move fast in the software dot-com world.
  13. I have been around Sketchbook and Sketchbook Pro for years. When they switched over to annual renting ($30), I was very disappointed. I was finally going to stop renting this year, but now that it is free, great, I will keep on using it. It's free. Are you going to stop using Windows or Mac OS because of all of the underhanded things they have done over the years? All of the big software companies have their ghost in the closet. I am wondering why they chose to make it free. And I can only think they are coming out with something new. They bought iDraw and made a name change to Graphic and have done nothing with it. But I hear something is coming up soon. So when it is free, another tool in your chest, I say, use it.
