  1. Yeah, for me Publisher has been pretty useless for the last 3 years. ... and this thread is still active. I am pretty disappointed by Affinity. I really was hoping they'd be a little more responsive to the most obvious things that are still missing ... footnotes, just being one of them. Who is this software directed to ? It's ok for single page or simple spreads but I would rather pay Adobe for InDesign than try to bypass all the lacking stuff with workarounds.
  2. so true ! it's 2022 now and this very useful feature is still not implemented... back to Adobe with regret.
  3. 1+ for a simple page editor à la ID. PS.: I just googled PagePlus to find that it is in fact a Serif App ! I don't understand is why so many features that are in PagePlus are still not present in Publisher ?
  4. maybe multi pages are in the pipeline ! See the attached screenshot. Currently, nothing happens when dropping the page into the spread. What should happen is for this action to add a page and make a 3-page spread.
  5. I can totally agree. It just makes sense. Another advantage of having this feature is that you can export individual pages as PDF's for the client to review or for the printer to print (some printers want individual pages, not spreads). If all 7 pages are on a single "page" as it has to be done currently in AP that is not possible.
  6. Maybe they should adapt their policy regarding the one time payments for their software. As much as I like it, I would be more than willing to pay for important updates if that would help to increase the cash flow at Affinity so they can hire more developers to make the Suite a viable alternative to Adobe.
  7. totally agree. It's getting so terribly frustrating to have to wait so long for features that most professionals use every day.
  8. I can't believe that a one man show has built an app that has features like "auto-trace" that Designer is still lacking after all these years. I've been tearing out my hair this morning trying to transition from Illustrator to Designer and had to download Inkscape to trace a bitmap. Thanks Inkscape. I'm slowly but surly loosing my patience with the Affinity apps.
  9. I havn't read through the whole thread but this is my short story: I bought the Affinity Trio when they came out a couple of years ago. The idea was to encourage them (financially) and to show them my support for the development of an alternative to the comparable Adobe Trio, fully knowing that the software couldn't replace the Adobe offering immediately. At present, I still have to use Adobe Indesign software because some basic features, most notably for me, multipage spreads with different page dimensions and foot-notes are not implemented. I could use Designer and Photo with some pain to replace Photoshop and Illustrator but I definitely couldn't use Publisher to replace Indesign at the moment because publishing work is currently my main income source and every project almost needs one or the other feature not currently implemented in AffPub. As much as I would like to DITCH ADOBE once and for all, at the time of my writing this rant, it is regrettably not possible. I am a little disappointed. I was hoping that Affinity's goal was to build a suite that professional designers could actually use as an alternative to the Adobe offering and that within a couple of years or so that goal would be attained. But I guess I was wrong. Maybe it will take longer. As every one seems to suggest, it took Indesign to mature over 10 years or so... Maybe, but I cant wait that long. I would be more than willing to pay for big updates so that features that professional publishers really use could be implemented in a timely manner. Greetings
  10. me too ! This and the footnotes are the only two features holding me back from dumping Adobe InDesign. Please make it happen ASAP!
