  1. As someone who used InDesign from 1.0, I remember how buggy and the same complaints that people are expressing about Publisher were there as well. While it would be nice for the import compatibility it is not a deal-breaker (for me). If anything new I use publisher and anything old I can either rebuild the file or edit in InDesign
  2. Thanks for the response, I am happy with the progress and I look forward to the release version.
  3. Hello, When setting up Column guides with the guide manager, I set it to outline not fill but when the document closes and is reopened it reverts back to the fill grey state.
  4. Hi, Generating a PDF after placing PDFs in document generate black boxes when exported Approval.pdf
  5. Hi I am not sure if this is a bug or feature request. In previous versions of Publisher when I placed a PDF that had crop marks and bleeds it imported as is. The last two versions when I place the document it comes into the page cropped. However, when you go to edit you still see everything. There are instances where those marks and/or bleeds may be required. Is this just a bug or will you be implementing placement options that would allow the user to determine how the external document will be placed?
  6. It was a vector file from a previous PDF File, I did some trouble-shooting and I deleted it and placed a Affinity Designer and it exported as expected. I think it may be an element in the file that caused the issue, as I was unable to replicate it.
  7. When I place an item on the master page and export final items to PDF it changes the colour from what is in the document. However, when I remove the item from the master page and place it on the native pages it exports correctly.
  8. I am by no means an novice I used page layout programs from Page-maker days. Magazines, Catalogues, Annual Reports, booklets I have worked on many multi-page publications. While I understand what you're describing. I think you're over-reaching when you say it won't prevail in a professional environment. It depends on the individual's workflow, Affinity is not Adobe and vise-versa. Two things, 1. Are you trying to force your expectations on the product? 2. When you compare apples to oranges you're setting yourself up for disappointment. Adobe is $600 US per year Affinity products are $50.00 each some level of expectation management is required.
  9. As a professional, I can't necessarily agree that it is not production-ready. It depends on your workflow and if you are willing break out of your comfort zone. Many of the issues that the video complained about were non-issues as they were just presented differently than he was accustomed. When I first started using Affinity Products I sat down and went through the tools as I accepted that it was not going to replicate Adobe. I used InDesign from 1.0 and it had it flaws and quark "die-hards" had made many of the complaints that are being made about publisher. In my not so humble opinion, Once you accept that alternative does not mean the product does not match adobe feature-for-feature.
  10. It does a decent job of trapping but at the end of the day you're still at the mercy of the printing press
  11. Thanks but not showing up in my installation, I uninstalled and reinstalled 3 times. I will wait for the next update.
  12. Just for the record, I have sent numerous files to print originally produced in Affinity Designer, no issues. As long as you know what you're doing it should be fine.
  13. I am a designer but I was fortunate to work with a few prepress houses back in the early days before direct-to-press. You had to do separations to film and then burn plates. Film was not cheap so you HAD to get it correct almost from the very beginning.
  14. I second that, It is a big pain in the behind. Set up your native style sheets (in this case apub) and then bring in plain text is the way I have always done it. It can even be a pre-press nightmare as when you're pre-flighting and it's looking for a nonexistent font.
