  1. I am sorry that the pages are in Portuguese, so most people won't have a clue of what is said, but I guess the purpose of having them on the post was just to show what a total newbie to this kind of thing can do with a little effort. The chart is for a reference software architecture for creating modular and expandable software.
  2. I just thought I share here my personal experience of using Affinity Publisher. I spent about 30 days writing and editing a paper with the purpose of publishing it as PDF. While I did use Microsoft Word and Grammarly a few times, to get recommendations on how to improve my text, 95% of all work happened within Affinity Publisher or Affinity Designer. Just about every day in this period I spent multiple hours, first getting to know Affinity Publisher through experimentation, and then creating the content within it. In all these days I had a single crash, while I'll admit that designer did crash several times right after a "Save as" operation. In these 40 days, I learned enough about Publisher to create a 44 page, fully illustrated business paper and publish it without major issues. I've attached some images exported by Affinity Publisher. I found the ability to export the publication as a set of PNG images quite useful in providing a quick view of the document for the user to check out, before downloading the PDF. As it should be obvious from my comments I am not a professional designer. I had not worked with any such tool since the days of Page Maker, about two decades ago. Still, I consider the results I got, working with a pre-release beta version to be quite good.
  3. Since I upgraded to version 249, I am seeing a lot more artifacts left behind on screen when I resize objects and images. It is not really impacting on my work but I do have to scroll the document in order for the workspace to clear of the leftover lines.
