    In the decades of activity I have seen too many software aspire to do everything.
     
    Many 3d modeling software has become gigantic and confusing because over time they have attacked too many things.
     
    See also Photoshop ... for graphics, for photographers, for illustrators, for 3d. in the end they become complex, confused with interfaces for some modern things and for other archaic ones.
     
    Perhaps it is better to satisfy a certain sector of the creative world, to do it well and to update it with criteria and without overdoing it.

    Hey, this is simple. It's all tight together. Designer, Photo, Publisher, some-next-generation-thing, some-other-next-generation-thing. Serif has a vision. If a Photo user votes for Designer, he/she votes for better Photo in the future.

    Designer deserves all the publicity, including this. Time to help a bit? If you are a member of any photo or graphics art related forums, maybe you could post a friendly message about the matter and ask people to cast a vote for Designer.

    You got my vote too. I'm a new Designer user and started the first real project for a client - UI design with artboards. Pure joy. So fast and intuitive. I hope Affinity products will have a bright future.

    Hi,
     
    We are pleased to announce the Windows release of Affinity Designer , version 1.6.4

    - Fix for rotated text bounding boxes being incorrect and for disappearing text following Power-Duplicate.
    - Added special case PSD import code for “SketchClub” PSD files (they should fix this!).

    That only shows that you don’t see the big picture. AP, AD, and APub are going to be a trinity where each program complements one another, and (it has been mentioned before) features of one program are also going to be implemented in the other two. I’m just speculating here but the time it takes now for new features in AP and AD is probably going to be made up twice once APub is out. Also, I seem to remember having read, that a lot of code for AD 1.7 is already in the current version, but it’s not active yet, in preparation for the release of APub.
    But what’s the point in bad-mouthing Serif without knowing what they’re up to?

    I'm a part time graphics designer, creating mainly web page visual elements, business cards and logos. I have been using Photoshop CS6 and Inkscape for ages and have been reluctant to purchase expensive Adobe license for my occasional needs. Then, couple of months ago, I checked out Affinity products and wow - they really shine. All the tools I need and the user interface feels snappy and has some clever functionality. -> Purchased
    My client, who was really happy with a website layout and graphics that I created earlier, asked me to design two company brochures and two magazine ads. I realized that I will need a proper professional tool which supports exporting high resolution PDF with bleeds and crop marks for a printing house. Damn. Do I need to purchase Adobe InDesign license just for this? Maybe just for one month? Nah, the client probably needs updates every now and then as their product line changes. But then, after searching more, I found PagePlus X9 - very cheap. After watching couple of videos and reading some reviews I decided to buy it and give it a try. Bingo! It seem to have all the things I need for the job - spread pages, text flow between text frames, hi res PDF export with printing-house-friendly options.
    That's my story. I'm very pleased what Serif is currently doing. And I'm not a big fan of what Adobe is doing these days - using their hegemony to build a stiff monetizing model which really does not feel fair for everyone. I hope Serif succeed with the Publisher and brings some healthy competition to the market.
