location of view menu . not windows standard

Recommended Posts

In every other windows program I use, the View menu is 2nd or 3rd from the left (File - Edit - View  OR  File - View).





In Affinity Designer it is closer to the right on the toolbar.  Is this some kind of Mac standard?  Is there a logical reason for this positioning?






I found it confusing.  Can it be moved to a more windows-standard position?  Can something like a profile be developed so a user could make Designer look more like DrawPlus?






Having joined the beta somewhat late, I did not realize that maintaining windows standards are not very high priority (as discussed here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/22296-location-of-view-menu-not-windows-standard/&p=104487). 






I have been using Serif products since PagePlus 3.  I don't plan on every owning a Mac.  I can understand the philosophy of maintaining mac-based look-and-feel for multi-platform design shops.  But I don't think it is too unreasonable to expect some kind of continuity for us longtime Plus users.
