I've been playing around with AD and I like the software and its interface, I use CorelDRAW for vector design and I really wish that you start real development to your software to make us ready and reliable to convert to it, I will put my notes below and I wish you consider them in the next updates:

  1. Support RTL languages (offcourse this is a deal breaker for me).
  2. Styles or effects (like perspective to match an image to a shape, blend to draw a shape along bath, contour, shadow, etc).
  3. Trace bitmap tool (it is available with options in Illustrator, CorelDRAW, Inkscape, and others).
  4. Tables and spiral shape.
  5. Fill with pattern (a specific method or tool to apply the pattern to a shape).
  6. 2 lines toolbar (to have more space for more tools).

I would add support for spot color duotones. I don't believe a photo can be printed in, lets say, metallic gold much less gold and black. This is a necessity in packaging, flexographic printing, or high-end graphics. Not everything is just cmyk or rgb.

I switched from Windows and an older version of CorelDRAW 4 years ago.  Was thrilled to find AD, and was excited to hear that the app was going to be very similar to AI and CD.  However, 4 years later, I'm not finding it that compatible.  I do love AD, and it is the best vector app for Mac I've found.  But I can't call it comparable yet when it doesn't do basic contours (which most free apps do)  There are still many things I miss from my old CorelDRAW.  But I love my Mac, so here I am.  Trying to be patient for the other features, but I have been waiting for 4 years.

I agree that if you switch to Mac you will never go back  :10_wink: .. but 4 years is a very long time in the life of technology, every day you search the web you find something new, new software or new website. as an example; each year CD and AI deliver major update(s) and minor developments and fixes the way that makes you excited to update your version or order the new version, this is a marketing policy for the benefit of the user,  but what AD offers me is the same I can find in any free software or online solution (check Gravit Designer), I like AD and I wish all good for the people working on it, that is why I'm sad that they don't deliver the best for their customers.
