  1. Curious... since Publisher for the desktop isn't even in Beta yet... does that mean Publisher for iPad is WAAAAY off? Or, is it likely Affinity is, or will be developing the desktop AND iPad versions at the same time?
  2. First off... I resisted buying Designer for the iPad. I have it for the desktop and haven't really used it much. Nothing against it, but I just don't do much vector drawing in general. However, I bought this anyway and am so freakin' impressed! Very well done interface and intuitive. Combined with the Apple Pencil.. this may be just the vector drawing app I needed, but just didn't know I needed. It actually inspires me to take another stab and vector drawing! The only feature I can think of that would be nice, is the same one that would be great if the desktop version had... a vector trace tool similar to what Illustrator has and I believe Freehand had as well. Where you can select a raster image and convert it into vector art for editing Otherwise, very pleased that I ended up buying this. Thanks!

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    It's kind of baffling how indignant, angry, and impatient some are with this. Personally, I'd rather they take their time and get it right. The iPad Photo launch was pretty bumpy to be honest... so I'm betting they're making sure this thing is fairly rock solid before anyone even gets to play with it. I'm cool with that.
  4. I'm actually just doing it with Adobe Bridge instead... but it'd be cool if you could do it right within Affinity... iPad and desktop installs
  5. Is there a way to edit EXIF Metadata for a TIFF on export from Photo? I think I know the answer to this question, ie. that it's not possible. However, I see that there's a switch to toggle to embed metadata on export to TIFF so I wondered if maybe there's a place to edit it. Looks like I can add/edit EXIF Metadata using the iOS photo app called Filterstorm Neue (which I already own) but I thought I'd see if maybe I could skip the extra step and just to it right inside Photo instead.

    Perhaps Summer begins much earlier in Angrytown? lol

    Actually, it's not even Summer yet. Summer doesn't officially even start until June 21st. Jus' sayin' :)

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    Here's a bit of an ignorant question... I've got Designer already. Haven't used it much at all. I bought it mainly to eventually replace Illustrator. Only, I'm not really much of an illustrator. I only have these apps because sometimes I need to design a logo, or edit other files sent to me. Not all that often, really. So, I was just messing around in Designer and it looks like you could basically layout a brochure in this no problem, and export a press-ready file. And, I imported in a 25 page PDF file with graphics and text heavy. Designer did an excellent job of allowing me to do pretty most of the editing on it I imagine I'd ever need to do. Can Designer basically be used for most of the bread and butter type print layout stuff? I don't see that much it can't do... other than the text formatting seems a little basic. Again, I haven't spent much time with it... but on the surface Designer looks completely formidable as a print layout application. Is that correct? Has anyone used it for that, and are there any serious pitfalls using it in that capacity? Mostly asking to see if this might get me by on it's own while waiting for Publisher.

    Yes, but that was back in December and there were some mutterings on the iPad threads about it. Thought I'd check to see if anything had changed. Sorry (notsorry) if that bothered you.

    I don't really need InDesign at the moment... and I believe that pretty much every file I've ever created in it... was exported as a PDF for print. So, as long as Publisher will let me open and edit those somewhat, I'd be perfectly fine with that. Just wish it would come sooner than later, so that I can start learning it. Is there a beta on this yet?

    You know this absolutely?!

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    Yeah, I was hoping someone would chime in and say, "Just be patient! Publisher is closer than you think!" After a clean install of High Sierra and trying to get rid of as much legacy stuff as I could, I really don't want to install old Java just to run InDesign... but maybe it's not so difficult to uninstall when I'm done. I'm not going the Quark route for sure. There's a reason I abandoned it for InDesign a long time ago. Likely just take your advice and reinstall just InDesign w/legacy java... and maybe rent InDesign if necessary. Thanks for the the info and suggestions.

    Thanks! Do you know if Publisher is supposed to be able to open native InDesign files? Most of anything I'd ever need to open was made in InDesign from the CS5.5 suite. Has there been any word on how to get on the Publisher beta when it's ready? Also, I haven't used Quark in a VERY long time. Honestly, I didn't even know it still existed. Had assumed that InDesign had killed it. Worth looking into again? Edit: never mind... at $849 for QXP, I'll just rent InDesign when I need it, and wait for Publisher

    Well, I finally deleted/unintalled my entire CS5.5 install. Have gone all-in with Affinity Photo, Designer, and Photo for iPad. Needed some file management and researched for half a way... until I discovered the Adobe Bridge component (that I like) is actually free. So, that leaves InDesign. I don't need it immediately, but will soon. I was going to have to install some legacy stuff onto High Sierra just to run half of my Adobe stuff, and decided to pull the plug on it. If Affinity Designer isn't even in beta yet... that means we could be looking at at least 6 months to a year before roll out? Is there an iPad version of Publisher that's also being developed? I suppose I can just pay the Creative Cloud monthly fee if I really have to have InDesign right away, but has anyone discovered any good InDesign alternatives that will open InDesign files.. just to get by until Publisher drops? Will Publisher also have a web layout/design/html feature set as well?

    Best Resample Method?

    Sweet! Thanks good video & I didn’t think there’d be that much breakdown in the manual. Nice.
