  1. Thank you for this: Publisher will export these pictures (cutted of course, as in the PDF). So it gets nearer to a solution.
  2. Dear OzNate, thank you for sharing your thoughts. That is true what you argue. But one point is missing there: the >linking of the pictures<. Normally the pictures go from Folder to folder and disc to disc over the years. And where do you get the names of the pictures? Finding these pictures is easy with search, but this takes some work and time! Anyway, the way with PDF is great. AS CS 6 will be soon not more supported by Apple, so I am in a hurry. I also test Xpress2018, as it opens Idml (often quite good) and promises for 2019-edition to open all Indesign files. Lets see. I mostly use affinity Photo and Designer, as they work quite good. In one case I have to use Photoshop: On converting special PDFs and EPS Files. And still I could not find a replacement for these converting tasks. Best wishes Josef from Bavaria
  3. Affinity answered some months ago, on the question, if there will be a solution on this in facebook with: No. Will there be an attemt once to sella plugin for this?
  4. Is there a solution to open old EPS files or Xpress Eps files like it is possible in Photoshop - but without adobe programs? Affinity designer or photo cannot open them with paths etc or high quality.
  5. Thank you for the reminder to Batch convert. I look for ".indd" and converted all indd into idml. Great! My workaround (as CS6 will not more be supported by Apple in the next System updates) is now: affinity photo, affinity designer and xpress. Xpress 2018 opens idml with paths and the magazines and books with all chainings quite good. I guess affinity publisher is the same good as xpress ( i do not need this internet things in xpress), but not for me, as there are too many old, useable datas. But lets see.
  6. Yes, true. As Adobe won the battle against Quark in older times, now Affinity can succeed in this DTP battlefield. Affinity-Photo works good meanwhile and is working for all my DTP needs - except: 1. I miss the path for using old photoshop plugins and 2. the ability to open EPS files! These open only in good quality with photoshop. I would pay extra for a plugin which opens EPS files in good quality and for a plugin which opens idml-files.
  7. Yes, this is a good option. Unfortunately, the pictures do not have the path of the pictures. If it is a booklet, and not too old to find the pictures, it will be a good choice, because the transformation of text out of the PDF is quite good.
  8. I am new with Affinity Photo Mac and will use the photoshop plugins of CS6. But i cannot find the correct path to the plugins or see them. Not in the CS6 Folder or in the Library Folders. Is there any instruction? Thanks for some help! Josef
  9. Yes. This is the workaround. Thanks for all your thoughts on this!
  10. Thanks. Yes it is an good idea to go on with publisher and the other programs. for this price i suggest it anyway to buy it for some purposes. Good luck!
  11. Thanks for this answer. yes switching is cost and time intensive. I try for the moment photoline32 which is qute good but the layout is a bit rough. For the indesign matter - which is really important, i try now viva designer. What i like on affinity is the layout and the congruency. Unfortunately i have lots of files in indesign 6 which i have to use again and again. I tested the possibility with opening the PDF files, and this was astonishing good. In my case, it is not only the price, but the Adobe monthly payment is not an option as it feels unhonest and unfair as they use their monopolistic condition. if you compare the prices, its only good for a superuser or company to use adobe, but not for a normal layouter or designer.
  12. For me it is quite important, that i can import idml-files as my work of the last 10 years is then unabailable. When do you think the idml-importer will be ready? In my case, I would also pay for it extra, as for other modules like a xpress importer despite of some errors on transparency or such explicit indesign or xpress things.
