  1. How many of you would be interested in including AppleScript functionality for Batch processing in Photo, Basic Template Creation is Designer and automated Catalogue/Book Creation in Publisher? The key is to automate repetitive tasks and let you focus more on the finer details on creative work? I am a bit of an AppleScript fanatic and like to automate certain things to free up my mind for the refining process of creative work. Adobe used to have AppleScript functionality built-in to their design apps (Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign) before, but now I am not so sure since they went and made Creative Cloud (I don't like subscription software). The intention of this proposed feature is only to automate the basic repetitive tasks for batch work and creating ready-made template designs in fewer steps and free up the creative mind for higher level work such as refinement of a project; in a smaller phrase to be more efficient with your time.
  2. I would like to have a shortcut to select the layer below or above the currently selected layer. In Affinity Photo I was able to create a macro which does exactly that. However, I couldn't find a way to assign a shortcut to this macro. So my wish is to either have: 1) a separate menu item to select a layer below or above the currently selected layer 2) a method to assign shortcuts to individual macros
  3. Do you plan to make your software scriptable with Applescript in the future?
  4. I switched from Illustrator for good, but I create graphics (fed by numbers) on a regular basis. Doing copy & paste is tedious and error-prone. Therefore, a way of scripting the contents of a drawing would be extremely helpful. I'm able to work around this limitation, but the resulting script cannot be used by someone else because it would require to either do "GUI-Scripting" (extremely shaky) or using the clipboard (requires that the respective text fields are active while running a lot of small scripts). I would prefer AppleScript, but any way of inserting more than one value at a time would be appreciated. (Creating whole graphics would be even better :) .) Thanks, Erik
