  1. Pageplus X9 shows recently used documents with a visual thumbnail representation, that has been an absolute time-saver, and has had a massive 'ease of use' benefit for me in that last five years. Someone comes to me and ask for prints of a document that i have worked on in the last 30 days, and I know that i can find it in a flash, because I can 'see' it as a thumbnail - so much easier than just a text list or having to trawl through searches and folders in a vast filing system. Is this something that Affinity Publisher has, or if not, is it a planned feature? Would anyone else agree that this is good to have?
  2. In your opinion, is it unlikely that this will be added in future?
  3. What makes this good [in my opinion] is that it pulls together all the recent PP documents, no matter where they may be in a large filing system of many types of documents, topics, folders, subfolders - it lays them before you so you can pull them up very quickly. Fantastic if you have a boss, manager or client who just walks in and requires a print [or a change] quickly - all your relevant DTP documents are right before you - wonderful So . . . the question remains - does Affinity Publisher have this feature?
  4. this image of the PageplusX9 feature will clear up any ambiguity as to what I'm meaning - this sort of thing - although I'm sure the AP version would look more 'pro' Its part of the 'Startup Assistant' so maybe some will feel that this is too 'amatuer' a feature - but all i can say it is something I thank serif for regularly [ albeit in secret - they never hear me ] - it's SUCH a time saver

    Data merge

    Is it the case like in online petitions that if there are 100,000 signatures then this must be debated in the house of parliament? I sign my name to this petition. +1 for Data merge

    PagePlus Files

    As a company we have used Pageplus since PagePlus 8 PDF [ many many years.... ] At any one time we may have as many as 10 people using the software, daily. This adds up to a large volume of documents and designs. Thus we have SO many Pageplus files, many which can be left behind, but MANY which we need to remain accessible. Is there any development planned for a file convertor? Is this a possibility in future? I have no understanding of the difficulty of this request, but I know that this would help many faithful and loyal Serif Pageplus users that want to make the transition to Affinity Publisher.
  9. Cannot Install latest beta! - it say installation failed Hmmmm Any help?

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    Just a quick thought..... Pageplus and Affinity Designer have an extremely useful 'assets' area. Will Affinity Publisher have a similar feature, for saving your reusable designs and elements?
  11. A feature that still gives Illustrator a slight edge over AF is the vector 'filters' and 'effects' - things that change the appearance of the vector paths [ which can then be 'expanded' into curves if need be.] For instance there is a simple 'roughen' effect [or filter] that can be applied to the vector shapes in illustrator Another example is the powerful feature of the 'transform' effect. see image Any thoughts?
  12. I think he must mean that there is no way to make a plugin for Affinity yet, but if that became an option [that plugins COULD be made for affinity] he is willing to make one.
  13. Hi - Ive been using the new windows beta and I really like it - I showed it to a mac user, who downloaded the demo - however, he could not find the ASSETS panel in the Mac version. Does the MAC version not have this feature?
  14. If my friend bought the paid for MAC version - how many updates would he expect to get for free - would this be from version 1.4.2 until version 2.0..... or when? .... or.... forever?? :)
  15. Thanks - I'll let him know - can he try the beta for MAC? is it open to all?
