Has anybody used Affinity Designer?

Hello all, I wondered if any of you have used Affinity Designer for laser cutting? It is MUCH cheaper than Illustrator and has good reviews…
Sending out good wishes to all of you and hope you and your loved ones and friends are getting through this surreal time. Take care and all the best,

Yeah! It works great as long as you make sure to set things up (line thickness and colours) how the trotec print utility expects.

I’ve only ever used inkscape which is free…

I have it but I’ve not used it yet in preparing for laser use. The Affinity suite is amazing.

Incscape works and is free, interface is clunky if using MacOS, but works well on windows. I have not used The Affinity Suite

Inskscape is great…we just can’t get it to play ball with the laser cutter

But it might be worth installing the newest version in parallel with the old one (which works but is limited in the files it can handle) to see if it’s any better now
