I used some vector graphics actually I bought some eps files from creative market. I tried to edit is with Affinity Designer now I am so used to Pix Pro that it was a fucking hassle to select all of the single artwork in a sheet where there were many in it (I have tried Alt, command, etc to click it) I could not select the single artwork with many layers attached to it. I hope the Pix team will release Vectormator at the end of the year...

@Andrius: Any slight info regarding this topic?

Thanks.

There aren't really any news I can share about this β€” a few other very awesome things are taking priority at the moment, so I wouldn't expect a standalone Vectormator particularly soon if I'm being honest.

Another request for Vectormator.
I have managed to replace Photoshop CS 6 with Pixelmator Pro.
Now, I want to replace Illustrator.

Do you have any news?

We've been thinking quite specifically about how to improve the vector tools in Pixelmator Pro β€” although that doesn't necessarily mean Vectormator is coming, if we start focusing more on vectors and get to a point where we feel certain vector-oriented features aren't suited for Pixelmator Pro, Vectormator would become more of a possibility for sure. But for now, I'd look out for more improvements to vector tools in Pixelmator Pro rather than Vectormator.

I feel slightly reluctant speaking about another vendor's product on the Pixelmator site. But, I too wanted to replace Illustrator (after having ditched Photoshop for Pixelmator). But, the desire to help the community, plus it seems the Pixelmator team isn't prioritizing a vector application just yet, so I feel like it's worth providing an alternative.

I have found the app Graphic to be a very strong alternative to Illustrator. It opens .ai files fine, and I have not yet needed to do something it could not accomplish.

I can't promise a full Vectormator app, but you can look forward to some vector improvements in Pixelmator Pro and, hey, maybe some UI improvements too!

Hi Andrius.
Is there any chance of an early preview of changes to the vector tools (more alpha than beta test), while there's still a chance to influence your thinking?
Happy to beta if not.
- Stef.

Maaaaybe, but we were actually just about to ship a public beta with the changes as you posted this β€” the version is now live, so this time you'll have to make do with the public beta. The changes in this version aren't especially groundbreaking but we have more lined up and plan to iterate with upcoming updates. But you're free to tell us what you'd like to see, especially if you use the shiny new beta thread.

No worries. Just saw the beta thread. I should be doing some vector work in the next few days so will put some feed back there is I have any. It sounds like a good list, though.

I think the Pixelmator team is on the right course. A full separate vector app isn’t desired. You just need a proper direct-selection tool (that white arrow in Illustrator) in Pixelmator Pro. Boom.

We've had lots of feedback about the vector tools recently and we plan to focus on improving them in upcoming updates, so it shouldn't be too long before you see some more changes.
