Always looking to improve my workflow......... OK..... program name please😀

Vectorstyler. Outstanding vector algorithms. Other programs reshape curves well too, just not Affinity. 😞

Unfortunately Vectorstyler is computer only (Win + macOS) so I cannot use it on my iPad Pro which I have to use often, as my life and career have placed me in airplane seats, transit or between meetings in (un)comfortable armchairs quite often. I try to keep my workflow simple so I don't involve more programs than necessary.

But sometimes I need something cleaned up and optimized - a trip through Vectorstyler on the computer and it's absurd how few nodes are left without the shapes having changed. And it only takes a short moment. It gives me the freedom to brainstorm or work quickly on ideas in airplane seats or worse - I get it cleaned and polished to perfection in Vectorstyler.

So basically both Vectorstyler and Affinity are not sure to survive in my workflows or shopping list for my entire workflow, but Vectorstyler is a keeper on my desktop computer.

 1) You have completely wrecked the layers panel, Serif.

2) I recommend Reddit groups instead of this forum. Not the same few bot-like users replying to everything, a wider representation of users, fewer fanboys, more qualified users. In short, better!

3) I was here to report bugs and submit improvement requests for professional work professionally in a large setup and to bring a lot of knowledge from the world, i.e. professional product development, web- and software development, usability, user experience design and accessibility. I actually know what I am talking about!

BUT! We are phasing out Designer and Affinity in 2022 Q1 - and replacing it with feature complete and algorithmically competent alternatives.
Publisher is unsuitable for serious use, and was never adopted.

Yes - I'm also a VS user - I was just curious to know what prog you where referring to in your previous post, just incase there was a killer vector app that I wasn't aware of - VS super powerful, I always have it open along side Publisher for a bit of copy paste powerlifting - and always improving
