Real good vector companion for Affinity Designer

Recommended Posts

Hi all

First of all I like Affinity Designer and i don't want to live without it ;-)

But i like to draw your attention to "Xara graphics designer"
as a nice vector software companion for Affinity Designer.

"Xara Graphic Designer" e.g. "Magix Graphic Designer".
has some very nice vector tools and some of these vector tools,
many would like to have in Affinity Designer.

There is also a Pro version. But all functions which I listed
here, also work in the normal version.

Here is what you get:
Remember, this functions are also in the normal version.



to name a few.

Can only recommend to take a look on it.
The normal version cost a round 70 euros,

Please be aware!
There is also a Steam version, this version offers only
one year access to xara's online object library and
as far as I know, no program updates.

I can live with that. I bought Xara 16 at a steam sale
for 20 Euro and was really surprised by his cool vector tools.
And even 70 Euro for the normal version of Xara 16 is more
than okay.

Hi Matt

Thats interesting to hear. I didn't know that.
This gives hope for the future of Affinity Designer ;-)

I know and own Xara since Version 1 and it was always
ways ahead of other Vector Programs at his time.

If i rember well, is was the first with smooth transparency and
color gradients in a vector graphic program!

Where others still have bandings, or no gradients at all.

But one of my all time favorit function in xara are
to copy an object with the just the right mouse button.
Just select your object with the right mouse button,
drag it away and you got your copy, simple and effortless
and no need to press a Alt-Button for that.

Well it's Win only and not cross platform.
