easy, precise, well built

Great tool. I was looking desperately to find quick vector solution for my Mac and Baaam - found it. Not pricey, feature packed. Great value for the buck. All the tools I need, quick learning curve (I was using Corel Draw sooooo many years ago - and almost feel like home with Affinity Designer). Not using it professionaly though - just for my home ofiice / business use. Would definitely recommend getting one. About to buy Affinity Photo now. Good job, affinity !

Powerful masterpiece for amateurs and professionals with some disadvantage

It’s a fantastic soft, very easy to use. Even on pretty old, basic configuration MacBook Air, I was able to made DTP for catalogue to print.

So far for me there is only one disadvantage. Creators of Affinity Desinger “FORGOT" that such format as CDR exists. There is no way to neither import CDR files nor export files to that format. AI files has been noticed by creators of AD, but only if you want to upload AI file. If export is needed, then forget.

This seemingly small thing turns out to be really problem when you cooperating with designers using other sotfware such as Corel or Adobe.

Very good and well designed

I am positivly surprised by this program. It is very well designed and really intuitive to use.
It is as good to use as Corel Draw and Illustrator.

I have just one problem: when I close it will not start up again until I force quit and start it again.
That is not a big issue of course.
