Hi there,


I am used to Corel Draw, and am trying AD as an alternative because of the lack of a native mac version of corel draw.


One thing that works very well in Corel is the trace feature, whereby you can convert a bitmap or other raster image to vector curves.


Can you do this in AD?

Glad to know its on the cards at least.


I have actually purchased AD now, as I have been very impressed with it so far and the lack of a native Mac version of Corel Draw really annoys me.


Affinity's lack of a vectorise / trace function is a massive restriction though. It is something I use constantly and I'd really really like to see it added!


In the meantime, what other vector formats can be imported, so that I can trace in Corel and import the resulting vector into Affinity?

Until this is built into AD, I have been using Image Vectorizer from the App Store (£3.99). I'm not a professional graphic designer and I've only thrown simple b&w images at it, but it's worked well for me so far. Might be worth a look.
