...I can tell you from software development projects I have been involved with, it is frequently the documentation and testing efforts that take MUCH more time than does the coding, and splintering off minor variations of the same product has the potential to almost double the testing efforts, while at the same time adding to documentation requirements, for relatively minor differences between the applications...

Add to that a bunch of important bugtickets and usability feature/change-tickets processing with involved afterwards testing etc., which always have higher priority in projects.

The suite of three apps is already pro (but still in 'early' development -- version 1.x) and is competitively priced. That's why I and so many others joined the Affinity project. Fundamental changes in marketing and development strategy at this stage might not be appreciated by the presently loyal user base.

That said, the notion of a "pro version" of these apps as has been suggested here is kind of silly.

err because the question was posed as a possible solution to allow MORE FUNDING for additional development speed / resources. Consensus being against it i am fine with, silly, I don't think so. As others have stated, perhaps cost increases and or having to pay to upgrade to major version updates that bring new features may be other options. Maybe they are just fine "as is". This post was to explore the situation as the software is good but designer is definitely missing some key features. I want the software to succeed without going subscription, if it can do that and add feature great, if it needs a bit of help then discussing such things can only be positive.
