    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    If this is the mentality & attitude of a company (which I doubt it is of Serif) then it is best to shut shop!!!! This is not how to run a software company!!!! So your explanation is flawed!

    Fair point(s) Mike.

    Mike I disagree with this line: "Updates would be good. But if the choice by Serif is to not comply with the demands of the hoards clanging their pitchforks and shovels then so what? It's their choice." No one (At least not me) is DEMANDING. All I was saying was a clearer form of communication would have been better. Perhaps Tony should not have even shown that video and not even mention such a product as now he has shot himself in the foot. I personally think Serif underestimated the importance & popularity of Publisher.

    Matt with all due respect a Teaser of "Existence" video is NOT a progress report. Even if it was surely you should put out more videos of your progress (Publisher Dev Team). We have all established that APUB exist. The fact of the matter is for a way late product, a teaser video will not suffice and real progress reports would be useful. I understand one cannot put a specific date on it but you have to admit this is also not the way forward and makes it very frustrating to check everyday in hope of something. I think the lead developer of Publisher should come forward and give some solid indication and real progress and not teaser videos. Your products are outstanding and that is why all of us here so lets make the third one as good with being more transparent and clear.

    My thoughts exactly. Been a loyal PagePlus user since V3!!!!

    The is issue is getting the priority right. Personally I would find the value of a major product on major platform which make up 1/3 of the collection far more important than shifting the focus on Designer for iPad. Is their user base is so high that it warrants such decision? I am sure Adobe would not have delayed the development of InDesign and say we are focusing on Illustrator for iPad first! To me this madness... But hey I am not the company or the developer...

    It is called Affinity Publish (er) so Microsoft can do F-All.

    Unfortunately Serif has failed to inform the users on the progress of the development, road map and everything else that is related. Showing a 30 second video to proof that it exists does even justify its existence. Publish is no secret so why no regular flow of information and update is beyond me. I agree with Petar as I too check this forum in the hope some new in APUB and it is the same old, same old....

    We have managed for years beautifully. As for our relationship with Serif, it goes back for more than 20 years with PP Version 3 !!!! Just finished a book using X9, just gutted that the work cannot be submitted to Affinity as it was made on a legacy product. I find that unfair as in the absence of APub there was not much we could do. Hope Tony & Team reconsider their rules.
