Yeah, more than likely. I've not used Affinity that much and I'm generally going with the defaults. I need to suss that out but in the meantime it's easier to whack an image into Gimp to make sure those pink and yellow lines are to spec. Only takes another minute or so...

Speaking as a very long term Adobe user, too set in my ways to make the change, I assure you that Afinity is the future and very much production ready. I'm seeing it in more and more professional environments, and a young graduate artworker I sometimes subcontract work to uses it exclusively and her work is unfailingly first class.
Ah, so you have heard of it then?

I only happened across it when I was trying to design custom decals for the racing game Gran Turismo. I needed something that would save files as SVG. I tried Inkscape but found it a bit limiting (to me anyway). So I searched for other vector graphics packages and found Affinity Designer.

Much too powerful for my basic needs but it is always handy having a vector graphics tool around
