  1. Thanks
    deva got a reaction from Patrick Connor in Affinity Publisher Public Beta - 1.7.0.305   
    Glad to hear about the inline graphics... I'll now be able to make real use of Publisher from the start. From my perspective, it is now ready to ship (bugs and other such issues aside)

    brush scaling would be handy... close to the center the brush is smaller, and farther from the center it is bigger...

    It should be compared. Because in the not too distant future, it will be released and then potential users will need to decide whether they are going to buy it. It does not matter how old the software is to the user, just whether it serves their purpose well.
    I purchased Photo and Designer day 1... Sure there were things missing that have been added since. But not mind boggling how can that be stuff. The current lacks in Publisher (no proper master pages and no anchored images that flow with text) are what I would call showstoppers for anything but the simplest of projects. Sorta like if Photo couldn't initially open JPG's! 
    I might end up buying Publisher day 1 too... because I have had such good use of Photo and Designer that I feel like supporting their efforts, but not because I have any intention of using the software in the near term. Since I know what is going on with it, I can be patient, wait a year, and use other software in the meanwhile. I think it would be frustrating to have to depend on Publisher as is.

    This deficiency so blunted my enthusiasm for Publisher. Left me uncertain if I will purchase upon release or wait until later.

    You're just resorting to pedantry now. It's broken, it's known to be broken, it's being worked on, it'll be fixed. Some things are complicated and take time, sometimes priorities have to change, a software package is a large and complex thing. 
     
    You're obviously frustrated, but I don't think this conversation is helping anyone anymore.

    It's a beta. Enough said.

    As a long time pro photographer and designer, the iPad version is not just 'nice to have'. It's fantastic! Feature equal versions for my iPad Pro and MBP is one of the best features ever and insures that Affinity Photo will be one of my primary tools. I can do lots of paying work primarily on the iPad and drawing and editing is really sweet with the iPad Pro 12.9" + Apple Pencil. They did a fantastic job on the GUI! I sure hope Affinity is planning an iPad version of Designer!

    You are entitled to your opinion... I walked away from Adobe due to the subscription model and will never look back. I still use Lightroom because I have not been forced out yet. It would be great if the Affinity alternative was out before that happened.
     
    I've used and loved Photoshop for 20 years. At this point, I consider Affinity Photo a fundamentally better application. I don't even have PS installed anymore. I prefer Designer to Illustrator as well.

    Yeah, Apple Pencil...
     
    Astropad is good. Feels good and not particularly laggy and seems reliable... I've not come across any issues. Some actions like scrolling menus gets blurry in order to be speedy but it's not a problem. Painting is crisp. Sometimes I paint in Procreate, but actually, besides quick sketching, I prefer Affinity Photo. With the iPad Pro and Astropad, I have a very portable setup where I can draw right on the screen... so easy to go sit in a cafe and work.
     
    I'm in no hurry for an iOS version of Photo since I have this solution and I much prefer working on my MBP to the iPad Pro. I don't much like working in iOS... too restricted, too limited for connectivity, etc.

    Plugin developers will make them compatible with Affinity Photo sooner or later anyway. Serif just needs to keep developing AP and it will happen.
