  1. At first, I'm really glad no one is avoiding this topic. :) I know that YouTube does have an automatic subtitling system - as you said, it is not perfect - and sometimes it really does it job more than good (but it is rarely the case), but when it comes to tutorials, there are often cases where even one single false word could change the whole meaning and workflow process. Of course some videos with subtitles are of some use. Otherwise it is really hard to use. I understand and accept, that your company is really busy working on the Affinity Product line. I hope accesibility is something you could focus more in a few years. However, I really think this is something which could bring your company way more customers worldwide. There are 360 million people worldwide having disabling hearing loss. Since creativity (drawing, painting, Photos - sign language) is one of the main language of the deaf community (the way how we express ourselves), you could sure achieve a huge new target group with an estimate about ~ 10 to 35 millions of possible new customers. I know quite a few friends who would love to learn graphic design softwares, but there are really almost zero companies who are offering this (Adobe does, but not regulary, and not up to date). And not everyone likes to only read books (since learning-by-doing through visual tutorials is way easier). I think this could be a huge chance to get more customers (and prizes from organisations - huge positive press - sympathy points). Maybe you could make a contest (like, people on youtube who are making great quality Affinity Tutorials and offering closed caption (not automatic subtitling) getting something in return, for example they get to be mentioned in your hall of fames, or commercial, whatever you think fits.)?! Or find a partner company who does it for you (win-win)?? Just my mind about it. And even it's really hard for me to follow video tutorials, I'm happy with the designer workbook as my resource (and depend on it for now).
  2. I would love to understand more Tutorial videos from Affinity. But only a few videos have subtitles. I'm deaf and I can only understand videos through closed caption (also the reason I bought the Designer Workbook).

  4. Yeah, this is what I really really really want so bad. I mean I love Affinity (I bought all 3 products: AD, AP. Workbook). I really do, but for drawings (especially for all sorts of perspective drawings), a straight line drawing tool is so essential. I appreciate all the all the time and effort you guys put in your Affinity products. But this is a really poor straight line solution. Maybe, I don't want to continue the line frome the previous click I clicked somwhere over the canvas. I really can't work with that. It is really useless (because I can't work precisely with this crosshairs cursor). Please create a drawing line tool like in krita (with better cursor hellp/view). Just click precisely and then drag it excactly all over the canvas to the point where you would like to draw. Here a really simple example, what we would like to have like in Krita (simple - with angle - line drawing tool): http://imgur.com/a/KwqPt
  5. I would be willing to wait longer if it takes way more time to finish a Workbook for Photo.
  6. Hey, I'm new to Affinity Photo and I would love to know how to finish or add a curve/line between 2 separate curves. Enclosed you will find a screenshot, so that you can understand better what I mean with this issue.
  7. Hello, I'm new here and I've heard a lot about Affinity's powerful ability as an real alternative for Graphic designers who want to avoid Adobe and their strictly, monthly payment model (which is not only a cost thing, but also something regarding their flexibility/accessibility). Just keep in mind: This is not a question about whether Affinity will release their new Update (v1.6) and what to expect or what features are going to be released. This is more a general question about Affinity's product line. From what I understand is, Affinity will publish a third beta program called "Affinity Publisher", which will also represent the complete "Graphic Suite" of Affinity, right? That means, there are no plans to bring out more program packages, but rather more tools that will be implemented in each programs of Affinity's Suite depending on their speciality? (sorry, for my poor english - it is not my native language) So if there are no subscriptions and free Updates, how can customers know up to which version they are going to have free updates? I know updates and upgrades are two different things, but in this case it is indeed a little confusing, since Affinity is offering their products free from subscriptions. So what's the big picture here? :)
