  1. Well, true, still a lot better than nothing and perhaps easier to develop and maintain than a full port if that's the issue.
  2. Yeah, I think it's seriously overdue for a Linux version. I mean, I totally get it that it might take some time to convert the binaries but Windows for me is no longer an option nor is Mac OS since their devices had gotten quite honestly bad, and pricey in my opinion. Linux (distros, Redhat & Open Suse) the last long term option I have, it's stable, easy to use, free to use, bloat free and most importantly they respect my privacy which Windows definitely does not. Nor do they automatically install junk games and trial softwares (yeah yeah, you can get rid of it but it's a F&$+ pain for a freaking paid OS!!!). Down to the point. A port to Linux might be to much to ask? If so, an official version that works well on wine or proton shouldn't be to much to ask for. As it is now, I've found it to be possible to get affinity designer in particular to work on wine, at least somewhat but hell, real pain. I've not tried the photo or publisher version. The only competitor to affinity on Linux would be Inkscape, and I Love that software but man... They need to work on those layers and snapping. So there's quite frankly not really any competitors directly at affinity's products atm, except for Gimp and Krita. Akira might even be made entirely from scratch before Affinity comes to Linux XD, which might be a better thing since it's open source but c'mon. Linux has pretty much everything except truly amazing art tools and music creation. Affinity could save one of those.
  3. Finally =D, have been quite anxious for this one haha thx.
  4. Hello, I have a surface pro device and I use it primarily for work and art. The issue I have with affinity designer/photo with the surface is that it's pretty much impossible to draw while having the cover attached. So by beeing able to add custom actions to the pen itself, I would perhaps be able to use it quite a bit more efficiently. I would be able to re-bind the single button on the pen to adjust the size of the pen pretty much exactly like you would in photoshop. Or even better, beeing able to press that single button and hover (Not pressing) would bring up a customizable toolbox/settings adjustment tools that could be selected.
  5. I would really really like an API for Affinity Designer and Photo. I have lots of plugins I would like to create or get if available. An addition if an API would be present would hopefully be a plugin gallery/mall where you can "easier" find plugins, extensions etc for the softwares. ATM I haven't found a place where it's "easy" to find more assets etc so quite a bit of time is used to create pretty much everything from scratch which is useless if there would be a way for the community to easly share content to each other. Personally I would be willing to pay if there where a marketplace although open source is important in my opinion
  6. Hello, I use Affinity Designer primarily for software design IE mobile/desktop apps, websites etc. I like how fast and easy it is to draft layouts and individual elements in Affinity Designer but it would be very handy to be able to attach notes to individual objects. Why? Well, if I make an element for an app I might want to keep record of the dimentions, colors etc so by beeing able to take notes and just read them real quick would be a bit time saving instead of navigating through palettes, size settings etc to get the "relevant" information, not to mention quite easy to miss a detail. This suggestion is just about adding custom notes for various reasons, give yourself a reminder etc but I see quite a bit potential. For example, in the future it could perhaps be extended to allow to export each object to a stylesheet like template with the notes under each object. The notes would obviously not be visible unless you want them to, otherwise they might interfere with the designs. NOTE: Objects/Elements is just a layer/group but Objects/Elements seems more appropriate in this context.
