How does AD render fonts, does it support hinting? I have problems with small type, as it seems to be unnecessarily blurry in most cases (8 points and smaller with pixel view). It looks like type hinting is not used and font control points are not adjusted to better fit the underlaying pixel grid. Currently I do improvements by hand by moving type in subpixel increments to get clearer letters - which of course is a tradeoff as some letters get clearer and some get mushier. It would be better if AD did tiny type improvements per letter.
I have a grid spaced to my application, which is very sensitive to the positioning of the gridlines (they are positioned with subpixel accuracy, in an svg with a repeating pattern, converted to a PDF). Try placing something under the grid and zoom in Affinity Designer and you will see the gridline positions changing with respect to the background. Another issue I have is that I can't import the patterned SVG, and I can't export this PDF without AD rasterizing it... EDIT: This is using AD version 1.5.4. Greetings, Josef a4l_grid.pdf
