I hope the Affinity staff read the forum

They do read the Feedback forums, but generally will not comment here.

I did my own testing using Designer, CorelDraw 2020, Illustrator and Sketch, all on macOS. If I really had to nitpick at something, I'd say that the Illustrator export is the jaggiest one. Sketch the best one.

I think the forum software resamples the images, but here they are:

In Affinity Designer you can see the most unsmooth contour at c. The smoothing in the inside of the letters is the worst in Affinity Designer. I have Windows 10 and the results under Windows are even more disappointing.

Each of those apps seems to have its own antialiasing algorithm, with tiny little differences between them that no ordinary human will notice or care about.
