  1. I wish I didn't have to write this but I'm a designer in a consultancy firm, and I'm often asked to produce work in the abomination that is Powerpoint (due to client insistence on retaining editabilty with their software). Sometimes I'm even asked to make 'print-ready' PPT files - don't ask! Nothing would make me happier than to be able to produce the design with all the great tools in Publisher, and then export to an editable .PPT file at the end. I imagine a few things would be needed to make this work - blend modes seem like a big one, so background images would probably have to get layer-merged, and it would presumably be RGB-only, but just having proper align/distribute tools would make my life a much happier place One additional benefit is that the consultants here are forever complaining about the enormous file-sizes that Powerpoint decks and their outputted PDFs come to - it seems it doesn't have a good image compression system. I bet Affinity's compression could do a far smarter job. I'm sure I could sell a whole bunch of licenses here if this functionality could be built, and in other companies I know, so hopefully it will be of interest. I wonder if anyone else on the forum has this need? P.S. Great work on all your software team!
