Many suggestions here are for new features. I'd like to suggest the otherwise.

It is my understanding that all Affinity apps share the same clever "viewing"/"backend" capabilities which allows them to open and render the same file format. The difference is in the tools each app provides to edit this content.

This got me thinking of an app (maybe free?) that has no editing capabilities and only allows a user to open and view an Affinity file. Ideally this app will also provide some measuring and information tools, a color picker etc. I imagine 90% of the code for this is already exists.

Many teams use hand-offs apps like Avocode or Zeplin, that allow developers to inspect files provided by designers. Having this tool actually be provided by Affinity, and open the real workfile could IMO really help organizations adopt the Affinity line of products.

Hope you'll consider!

If you want others to see AP files export to JPEG and send them. Transferring AP files is cumbersome anyway as they tend to be very big.
