When Affinity Designer came out, I took the plunge and never looked back at Illustrator. Although, there is only one feature still missing, which I need from time to time: path offset.
In AD it can be achieved by outlining a stroke and clipping it from the original object, but this results in very messy paths:
In the past, I took a one-month subscription to Illustrator when I really needed this tool. But it's a bit silly to pay a hefty price for just this single feature.
Are there any other vector apps out there that can do the same without messing up the path structure?
