Default Serif's Affinity range

So who else is using Affinity Designer, Photo and holding out for Publisher?

I have Affinity Designer installed on my Win 10 PC even though I regularly use CorelDraw X8. Affinity has some very good features such as its drawing tools, text handling and overall performance. However, it lacks some such as auto trace and a movable zero insertion point on the rulers which CorelDraw and Illustrator users take for granted.

As for page layout, Affinity Publisher is way overdue having been promised since 2015. Serif now say 2018, although whater this'll be the beta or the finished article is anyone's guess.

It may be that I am too wedded to CorelDraw to make the move....on the other hand.

I tried Designer and Photo a while ago and to me they felt unfinished. Agree that Publisher is taking too long to get ready. When it has arrived I'll take another look at the other applications again. Or should I say if?
