I'm here on behalf of my 70-something sister, who I'm trying to wean away from Adobe Creative Suite because she's on low fixed income and cannot afford Adobe's highway robbery. She bought Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo, but she is having trouble with her visual acuity diminishing and cannot see the tools. The grey-on-grey scheme may be pretty, but it's not terribly functional for those of us who are getting older. She is very depressed because she depends on her graphic design work to help keep her focus off her painful fibromyalgia, and it's her one great joy in life to be able to do design. She already has a big honking monitor, but the Affinity tools stay too small even when she's at full screen for her to be able to see well enough to work. Is it possible you could add a hover-over-tools feature that folks can enable to be able to see the tools better? I know you've got the tool tips, but they are really too small for people with older eyes (and I am one of them) to be able to read without straining. Or maybe a skin that people can apply who need help in this department?
Ok, this maybe out there but it just an idea. I thought it be cool if there were a set of tools to create a bone structure or maybe a sort of morphing tool. The application could go beyond just characters but perhaps could expand the capabilities for some unique art. Illustrators and Animators could use this after they create character to move and pose a character or simply make slight adjustments to their character pose. then they could maybe save that as a morph target similar to a snapshot. Graphic Designer could use this tool to take certain graphic forms or shapes and push and pull solid forms into an organic shape for instance if you wanted to make something look gooey from a flat shape you could place a pin where you don't want things affected and place move point with a fall off adjustment to make that stretchy form. Sure you can draw this form but it be more organic to push and shape the form. Just had a thought if you have this morph target or snapshots recorded you could use them to create the points for some basic animated Gifs exports. I should referenced the puppet tool... (I am sure you will do it better) ;)
