    There are several things I miss in CorelDRAW, but am finding AD/AP is becoming more of a complete replacement!

    Expand stroke still sucks

    @dsnaps12 Where is this in the forum? Not finding it.

    They are working on a Release Candidate (Beta 1.7.0.14) and it's still not on the radar.

    Expand stroke still sucks

    It has been in the request list since the early days (2014) At first they were saying it would be soon, but the longer it goes, the further out it seems to be. I miss my CorelDRAW days. But I went Mac and now CorelDRAW has a Mac Version (pro subscription, not an option) So I'm thankful to have a lot of what I need in AD

    Corel draw is back on the Mac!

    Oh I miss CD since switching to Mac. I'm just a hobbyist, so the price was right. Fortunately at the same time of the switch, I heard of AD's beta. Woohoo..... But nearly 5 years later, I'm still loving the Mac - my affections to Affinity Designer have diminished. So I checked into the CorelDRAW for Mac. $500 outright, or subscription of $200 a year. Out of my budget. So I will keep waiting for some of the basic things such as offset / contour and keep hoping that someday Affinity Designer will catch up to my CorelDRAW X4. Oh, and yes, maybe PhotoPaint has improved, but it was very lacking. I always used their PaintShop Pro and it was great for my needs.

    This seems so true!!! I'm just a hobbyist, (who switched to Mac when AD first was in beta) Oh how I miss CorelDRAW some days!!!!!)
  7. An explanation would go a long way. If there have been unforeseen aspects, just let us now. But for over three years we've been told "Be patient, it's coming" and now we are being told "Be patient, it will be coming in a later version."
  8. I’m on a Mac so DP isn’t an option. However, most every other vector app (even free ones) has contour/offset. Which puzzles me even more- if this is “low hanging fruit” as it was described early on, why isn’t it even close after 4 years?
  9. For a long time they said it would be in version 1. Now I think they are saying V2
  10. This would be less disappointing if we hadn't been told from the get-go that this is an easy feature to add, and if it wasn't a common feature among even the free graphic apps. I know Affinity has added a lot of bells and whistles to the app, but I really really need the basics!!! All said, AD is still the best Mac (non-Adobe subscription) software you can buy. But I'm referring it with much less enthusiasm than I did four years ago.

    Sorry, I'm discouraged on this one.... I've been requesting contour / offset since the BEGINNING of AD - back in 2014. Yes, we keep getting told that it will come, they just don't now when. In the mean time, we can use expand stroke (not good) or do that part in another program. Really? And this is what's going to take business away from Adobe?
  12. Wow that's really a bummer. I'll probably upgrade when version 2 comes out, but early on it was stated that the contour / offset is an easy thing to add. And in fact a lot of free apps have it (though not all the other things I need) Maybe I had too high of expectations early on. This clearly is a long way from replacing my CorelDRAW X4 - and we are talking old software here!
  13. Glad to hear it. I've been expecting the contour / offset for a long time..... Hopefully soon. I love AD (especially since not really any non-professionally priced Mac alternatives) But really miss some of the features I had with CorelDRAW many years ago....
  14. What is the status of development on Designer? I've been waiting four years for some features that were said to be coming soon..... Are we done with version 1? Is there something in development yet? Will I ever get contour / offset?
  15. My current workflow is to start with AD to design then export to cut my files in Silhouette Studio Business Edition. BUT if I want to offset, then the workflow is SS to AD then. back to SS. A cutting software not having design tools makes sense. But having to use it for designing doesn’t.
