LEAVING AFFINITY DESIGNER - SAD TO SEE YOU GO

Recommended Posts

After 3 years of waiting for AD to include all the features that they removed from Serif and dealing with snapping, performance, endless workarounds and other routine feature issues...I am officially leaving AD and moving to Xara Designer Pro X. I had such high hopes for this software, but it seems that I just can't wait what seems like will be another 5-10 YEARS for real fixes and features to be incorporated. It was a good try, and I think the Affinity team is superb. All the best.

It really is a shame about DrawPlus.  It had a whole lot of problems that never got resolved before it was abandoned, but it had a couple things that id did really well and that's what I continue to use it for.  It would be great if Affinity Designer would have inherited all of DrawPlus, and maintained the same workflow.  The brush tools in Designer look exactly the same on the surface, but don't work the same at all.  It's unfortunate.  Well, than god for Microsoft for maintaining backwards compatibility through Windows 10.
