I see that this is in the 'me too' category.  If at all possible, please implement applescript support.  Working through colourizing thousands of black and white images, I would love to automate the setup process (open in Affinity Photo, change document colour space, select appropriate swatch palette, duplicate layer).  Started writing the automator workflow, only to find that AP does not have applescript support.  Dang.  Double dang.

True, applescript has not been updated recently, but since it is basically a suite of apple events passed between programs, it does not really require constant fiddling and updating.  Compiling for the mac has the standard suite built in, it should not take a huge amount of effort for your developer team to start adding scripting steps to file level processes ...

Affinity Photo is also an application for Windows. Do you think Applescript will work on Windows?

AppleScript is problematic but there are plenty of alternatives.

Here is a long in depth discussion on this. There is not really much more to add to this topic.
