I am of course very excited to get Affinity Designer into my workflow.

But, there is the issue of round-tripping with Adobe.

 I know that Designer can output in many different formats. But can it output a file that is openable in Adobe illustrator? Is there that degree of backward compatibility if it is necessary?

I don't have any Adobe apps at present. But Designer outputs .psd, .pdf, and .eps. Down load the 10 day trial, and see what you can transfer to and fro'.

Still learning Designer... So far, I've found .svg to be the best export option.

What I've so far tried: Carries over Text as fully editable; Gradient Fill in shapes ok and editable. Strokes need to be set as no fill (otherwise arrive as multi-noded shapes).
