This may sound like a paid advert, but a big thank you to the Serif team is long overdue from me, a convert from Adobe's overpriced offerings.
I have been using a vector illustration tool since Freehand 5, and have made a large part of my living by doing auto technical illustrations with A.I. since Adobe absorbed FH.
The Affinity team deserves a series of High-Fives for their intelligently designed and intuitive software programs. As I transition from A.I. to Designer, the learning curve is far less imposing when I use their supporting tutorials, all of which have been carefully planned and splendidly scripted. The voice-overs are clearly articulated, with screen captures that highlight the commands and visual cues needed to duplicate various processes and procedures.
Thank you. In an age when morons at Microsoft and Google generate user interfaces that commonly come across as a bad inside joke at IT, it is a pleasure to see an intuitive and user friendly software interface like yours. Moreover, while all software goes through temporary setbacks and minor glitches from time to time, these programs (Designer and Photo) seem to me to be rock solid and stable.
Thanks. Keep it up. (I can't wait to replace InDesign with the Affinity replacement.)
