Mark, is there any timeline around solving the brush highlights issue as reported in the thread 'What Brush am I Using'...

(this thread beginning in December 2016) 

...and the GUI problems as reported in the thread ' preferences: add option to remove/hide brush outline'?

(this thread beginning December 2017)

As I see it, neither issue has been addressed at all and cumulatively all I think are ground zero hindrances to artists who would be looking to make the switch to AD and/or AP from CSP, Painter and the rest - a huge market. The 'sneak peak' of https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JnfxzknVK_0 is interesting and welcome, but as ever with so much of Affinity development, handling 600k object layers feels so much like an eccentric edge case in comparison to basic GUI problems that make the apps hugely unusable if you are a digital painter.

1.10 feels like a milestone release but it is crushing to try out the beta and find all of these conditions as they were five years ago.

With thanks,

Peter

I agree, I truly hope the next update can be a major bug fixing release of many of these long standing bugs open for years.

Fixing many of these bugs would be the equivalent of adding new features since some of these bugs simply prevent you from using Affinity in the ways you would like.  I think the vector brush gap bug on closed curves has been there since initial release.  Because of that, I simply can't use vector brushes in many cases where I might would otherwise for interesting effects.
