First post where I have a question about licensing but first want to say how awesome Affinity Designer is.  I'm a Photoshop convert (not a pro) but Affinity Designer gets everything done that I need to do and more.


Onto the question - I purchased Affinity Designer through the Mac app store for my Macbook.  I wondered will I also have to purchase a separate license for Affinity Designer to use it on Windows?  I've read through the licensing documentation that I could find and couldn't get a definitive answer but presumably I need to purchase another license for my Windows machine.  I'm not a business - I'd just like to use it on both Windows and Mac because I am located across different locations where the Windows machine is a desktop that doesn't move with me.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums


I have updated the first line of this pinned post to reflect the answer to your common question, sorry it was not more obvious before.


We sell a Windows license independently of the Mac OS license and of the iOS license. If you want to use both on Windows and Mac then you will need to buy both.


P.S. the tagging system on these forums works quite well. Clicking on the licensing tag on your post actually brings up many similar questions.
