Thank you Shirley, I am dipping my feet into affinity designer at the moment, I have been a long time user of Craftartist but need to learn something new as my program Doesn’t work as well as it did. This was helpful for sure. Thanks!

I have the entire Affinity suite and love how you can seamlessly switch the editing between designer, photo and publisher.
