Hello. I watched affinity designer more than a year. As soon as the beta for windows I downloaded it immediately. Once the program came from the beta - I bought it immediately. Soft good, very good. So good that I almost immediately replaced by CorelDrow and Photoshop.

 

I immediately tried to use Affinity Designer for Web Design. And experimental success! But two things I was very disappointed:
1. I made a design, and then what?
Adobe brackets - works well, but the PSD files in affinity is not very good. Because text. The text is translated in a raster. Because of this, it is impossible to take css for text.
Avocode - this is again psd. Again the same problem.
Zeplin. I was not able to import the template file, because you need to download the plugin for Photoshop. And I do not want to use Photoshop.
I now appeal to Affinity Designer developers. Look at this:
Members Zeplin want it. Members Affinity disigner want the same. Perhaps you could work together for this !? I finished the layout for the site, but it was hard. Without a suitable tool for the layout of the site, work hard. Please pay attention to it. I'm not alone in his desire to https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/16975-zeplinio-integrationcooperation/
2. Typografy. Affinity designer allows you to assign styles to text. As <h1>, <h2>, etc. or as a <p> <ul / li>. But the styles of text to work inconvenient. I would like to work with typography as well as going to work with symbols. If there was such a possibility - this would be ideal.
Thank you for your work. You've done a terrific product. I hope that in time he will become only better.
P. S. Sorry for the broken English. I hope it will also better with time))

Go to the Edit menu, choose 'Preferences...' and click on 'General'. Put a tick in the checkbox labelled 'Import PSD text as text rather than bitmap' and then press 'OK'. (The default is set that way so that the text looks correct. If you don't have the font installed, text imported as text won't look correct but you might not notice.)

He's talking about exporting PSDs for usage in Avocode or Zeplin. This is the only thing (and border radius) that prevents AD from being the perfect UI-Design tool in agency environments.

I was about to make the same post. Highlighted the issue in one of my previous post as well.

AD is almost perfect except after design there is a problem with sending files to the client. Most uses Adobe. So integration with invisionapp, zeplin or other similar would be perfect.
