  1. The day Publisher can replace InDesign will be a day to celebrate for so many of us. Too bad the release got rescheduled. :(
  2. Maybe mods would have moved the thread to the right forum if they felt the need to? Besides, no one was "whining" here, not counting some wars on open source politics. All it was just considering the option to run Software on Linux and Affinity staff did reply that one of the main issues is funding. If it ever becomes reality, we don't know. All I can say that it's great to have an Adobe alternative to begin with. So no, the world will not end if there won't be Affinity for Linux. :)
  3. I'll try getting the word out and we'll see how it goes. :)
  4. Jeez, I said I'll have a shot or two when I can replace Adobe with Affinity on my Mac, but I think I'll have the whole bottle when I can run this on Linux! :D
  5. Exactly. There must be some money involved in a project if it's to meet certain quality standards. There's nothing wrong to pay for good software regardless if it's proprietary or not. Even open source doesn't mean it has to be for free. What it boils down to is quality (UI/UX) and excellent costumer service. Affinity definitely does a good job on both ends, even though it will take a little till it's going to be a replacement for the usual suspects.
  6. Publisher could be my salvation! :D
  7. I know this thread is old, but I got linked to it from my recent post regarding Affinity for Linux. I've been active in the open source community for years, but the lack of professional graphic software "forced" me to stick to Macs. I've had many discussions on how ethical or unethical closed source is, but let me give you insight from the end user's perspective: Frankly, no one gives a damn whether or not the software is GPL, as long as it gets the job done and is worth its price and distributing model. If there was a software solution that is open source and at least as good as its competitors, I'd be more than happy to use it, but not because it's free, but because it's good. Quality should be always before politics and ideology. That's what made some other open source projects very successful (Open Office, Firefox etc). Perhaps there could be ways to raise some funds to get this thing going. I can try to check different communities and see if people would be interested in this. Many use Linux already so maybe the user base might be bigger than we think.
  8. Thank you for this! :) I'm already thinking if there could be a distro that could be tweaked and have Affinity exclusively run on it (paid of course). It would be kind of a Linux for designers if that makes sense.
  9. I'm actually a bit of a Linux/Unix geek, and my dream was always to get away from Adobe and have a reasonable alternative. Affinity seems like a good candidate to ditch Adobe, but I'd still have to stick to a Mac. Not that I don't like it, but I do miss my good old Linux sometimes and it would be awesome when I'd be able to push pxls on a penguin system. I'm not a coder, but OS X is based on BSD Unix, so maybe the jump to Linux isn't that high? What do you think?
  10. Ok, Thanks for the heads up. :)
  11. But it will be sometime in the future?
  12. Hi, will there be a way in Publisher or Designer to create PDF's with interactive fields like you can do with Acrobat Pro? Thanks! :)
  13. My trial ran out a while after I heard about the feature. Perhaps just increasing the levels might solve the UI issue altogether and a separate lighter UI isn't necessary. I'm waiting on the December releases to give myself a nice xmas present. :)
  14. Thanks for the heads up... Any chance it will be in the next release? I heard there was some trick with a "gamma setting", maybe that can do for a bit.
  15. Hey guys, just a quick question: Is a light UI available at least in beta yet? Looks like I could be ditching Adobe and buy Affinity sooner, since there are problems with El Capitan, but the light UI is essential due to accessibility issues and would actually make it possible for me to work with it.
