Scanners will generate bitmaps. What would you want to do with a bitmap imported into Designer?

As far as I have seen, most designer art originates as pencil drawings.  So you scan in and trace.

Shows that I am not a designer.

What I do with scanning into Photo on Windows is this (I'm sure there is an equivalent for Mac):

  1. I have Affinity Photo as the default program to open tiff files.
  2. I use VueScan to scan my images and then save to a convenient location (often a Temp folder).
  3. When the file is saved by VueScan, it will then open automatically in Affinity Photo.

This process is only marginally slower than scanning directly from Photo. If you set Designer as the default program to open tiffs, then it would open in Designer. I'm sure it would also work with any other scanner software.
