I was just browsing the website for QuarkXpress 2017 (http://quark.com/Products/QuarkXPress/InDesign-Alternative/) and found that they actually recommend Affinity Photo as an accompanying application for image editing (FAQ section about "other tools for specialist tasks outside the Creative Cloud"). Screenshot attached. :o)

Very cool to see Affinity Photo listed for photo editing, but I wonder why Affinity Designer was not mentioned for illustration.


The only listed app for that for Mac users is Gravit Designer. I 'bought' it for free at the Mac App Store to try it out. At least to me it seems a lot like an unpolished version of AD -- quite a bit slower & less responsive, lacking refinements like double-clicking on a layer in the layers panel to zoom to it, & weirdly enough no Close item on the File menu.
