All the feature requests from the forum, support form and other channels (social media, for example) are already tracked in separate tasks internally.
If you have ever suggested brushes, shape builder tool, or warp distortions (just examples from the top of my head), you don’t have to do it again. It is tracked already.
But we’re getting new requests (I can’t remember anyone here suggesting a printer friendly version of the user manual, but it was requested on upvoty already) and those (from now on) should be using upvoty.
So if you have NEW requests, please use upvoty.
About the forum vote system, it is taken in consideration but it is just one factor.
We sent several survey forms, get constant feedback on intercom (that little chat inside Gravit Designer), and upvoty is just another variable in this popularity question math.
