General opinion

Recommended Posts

I’ve been using Mac design programs from Pagemaker v1 to Quark, and through recent InDesign versions. I’ve been able to figure out how to do 90 percent of what I want to by just fiddling with the application. Such is nowhere near the case with Affinity Design. It widely misses the “intuitive” boat, so I’m sorry to say it won’t be on my Mac. I wish those who like it well.

That'll be because Pagemake, Quark and InDesign are DTP/layout applications.  Designer is an illustration package, more like Illustrator.  To people used to using Illustrator and Freehand, Designer is fairly intuitive.
