As a long term user of Serif  Plus programs , the Affinity series of programs lack a facility to import from scanner on Windows. The scan import is of major importance together with the additional control of scans made available by the program over and above built in or generic scanner software.

The Affinity group of programs doesn't replace the earlier Plus series for users in my category

I am concerned that I will be in difficulty when the plus series stops working.

It's little complicated.
Serif says they support only TWAIN, but they won't implement it on Windows because 64bit TWAIN driver is poor.
That may be true since 64bit Photoshop also doesn't support TWAIN.
But Photoshop on Windows supports WIA.
Then Serif says they won't support WIA since it's not common.
But as far as I know most of consumer scanners and all-in-one printers supports WIA.

I use VueScan or SilverFast for scanning. When I save the scanned image as tiff or jpg, it will automatically open in Affinity Photo. I have AP as the default program for opening these file-types. Not quite as efficient as scanning from AP, but it is still very convenient.

I agree it is very irratating not being able to import directly from my scanner as I used to with page plus. Let us hope that they will include this feature in their nex upgrade
