Cinder launched up from her chair, nearly toppling over when she forgot about her missing limb.
Steadying herself with both hands on the table, she managed an awkward bow. The retina display sank out of sight.
“Your Highness,”she stammered, head lowered, glad that he couldn’t see her empty ankle behind the tablecloth.
The prince flinched and cast a glance over his shoulder before hunching toward her. “Maybe, um…” –he pulled his fingers across his lips –”on the Highness stuff?”
Cameron, I recently switched computers and my tool of choice for map making was Inkscape. However, it appears Inkscape isn't quite optimized for my computer's screen (I'm on a Mac Retina display). What other tools that are just shy of Illustrator do you know of that have similar features to Inkscape?
I think I answer this question and many more in the site’s FAQ, but you should definitely check out Affinity Designer. As their website cheekily says, it costs $49.99 total, no subscription required (a full Creative Cloud subscription is that much per month). I haven’t used it myself, but it gets good reviews, is optimised for MacOS, and certainly looks more polished than the freeware Inkscape.
If anyone has had experience with Affinity Designer for transit map design, leave a comment and let us know what you think! What other cheap/free design tools do people use?
