  1. As an end user working in the professional pre-press environment our only concern is that AP should be able to interpret embedded fonts and has a reliable pdf passthrough. The technical issues as to why this is not working are of no importance. Workarounds, third party software etc. are just a distraction. Serif need to fix this problem before lasting damage is done to their reputation as a serious developer of professional design software (Description from their website ‘The Next Level of Professional Publishing’) This dialogue has been ongoing for over two years, so they are well aware

  3. As I have posted on multiple threads "The sooner Serif sort the pdf passthrough the sooner we can start to use Affinity Publisher, as at the moment it is just easier (although we would like to change) to use indesign."

  6. Well said benwiggy. The sooner Serif sort the pdf passthrough the sooner we can start to use Affinity Publisher, as at the moment it is just easier (although we would like to change) to use indesign.
  7. I know that not everyone is a great fan of Markzware but their latest offering IDMarkz has the option to open indd CC documents in Affinity Publisher. I have not tried it only seen the tutorial on their website. I have only used their tools to convert CC to IDML which has worked very well.
  8. Perhaps the answer is a ‘show details / hide details’ option, then it would be user dependent.
  9. Pop-up original size: It may be possible for the context toolbar to be expanded in order to hold all the relevant info, While it would not want to be a direct copy of ID we feel sure Affinity are able to do something at least as good, if not better (see attached picture) Relative position: Radio buttons to give the various option sounds like a good plan PDF import: If the issue arises due to Affinity treating pdfs as an embedded document then perhaps the way to achieve what we need would be, rather than as our original suggestion of a ‘Locked-Unlocked’ op
  10. The pop-up ‘original size’ is what I meant by ‘scale of original’ (This was not available on the old beta version when I first made the suggestion) so I am pleased it is there now. However I think it would be better if it were visible in the toolbar, not as a pop-up. We would also like to see the addition of the images position relative to the frame which (for us) would be very useful. I can also see the pdf info (page number & import options) is now available, but when the image is a pdf the ‘original size’ scaling option is not there (nor of course position relati
  11. Thanks for the advice Walt, I did not realise the viewing issues with pdfs. I will add as jpgs Jon
  12. It would make the switch from InDesign to Publisher much more viable (for us as designers & printers) if the these features (see pdf) were available. I know it is a bit late now as you are about to release the full version. Perhaps they might be considered for future updates (I am aware you are looking into the issue of embedded fonts within pdfs) Jon AP additions.pdf
