    And why You would do this in Tex? An grphic orientant workflow with live control is in m.o. the better way. There is no only one thing to do – there are many, so the workflow for a new and modern publishing app may be so easy as possible.

    We are talking here about professional DTP software. So you can/must also expect professional functions.
    The anchoring of graphics is such a function and was e. g. supported by PageStream at the beginning of the 1990s in the first version.
    Word, Openoffice and other word processors offer the anchoring of graphics, images and objects and I expect this from a professional DTP program.
    Serif showed with PagePlus that they can do that. Why are such functions not planned and implemented right from the start?
    As a professional I need and expect these functions, after all I also like to pay more for good software.

    With my books I create it often happens that graphics, tables and pictures have to be anchored in the running text.

    If the author makes changes to the text, this can give rise to nasty surprises and the search for the right place in the text becomes disgusting.
    For this reason, inserted content must be firmly anchored to the text passage. And if there is no other way, the whole paragraph must be wrapped and continued on the next page. This is also typographically correct.
    I hope that the function will be introduced soon in the A-Publisher and also for tables that can automatically wrap at the bottom of the page.

    ernie-f got a reaction from Callum in Affinity Windows – after a week playing my first drawing   
    Hi @ all,
     
    I'm a newbie in Affinity Designer and this is my forst post here. My name is Ernie and I'm an old school Grafik Designer, Typesetter and Printer from Germany, Bavaria.
    For my work I use several programs like AI, CorelDraw, Serif DrawPlus, Inkscape but my favorite drawing program is still Xara. With Xara i made my most work in vector drawing and desining book covers for print and e-books.
    For Typesetting I use TangoSolo, Indesign and Serif PagePlus.
     
    My fun is creating photo realistic vector drawings like this one which is made in Xara.
     

     
    Just a week i play arround with Affinity for Windows an try out some drawings. One, is still in work because is to complex and affinity can't handle it, must wait until Affinity will be ready to deliver and most bugless.
     
    So I try some easier projects. These I'll share here with you:
     

     

     
    Sorry for my German-English, I hope You understand me nevertheless.

    Hallo Peter,
    sorry I answer late, I spent a few days on vacation.
     
    DrawPlus has pretty tools thye in Xara not exist. Ex. is the mesh fill-tool, roughen the edges, the replicate-tool.
    But DrawPlus is still slower then Xara. If I draw things like the Breitling I'd shown, DrawPlus freezes for about two minutes and if I have the luck it crashes.
     
    Xara is for me intuitively to handle then all other Vector Drawing Programs I know, AD included. Tha fastness in Xara is incredible and such a drawing like the Breitling Watch with 1475 objects it handles like a lightning.
     

     
    The PDF Import in Xara is more precise, Xara uses the embedet fonts to reconstruct the PDF to its native. Not so in DrawPlus or PagePlus. Her some screenshots:
     
    original PDF in Acrobat

     
    PDF in DrawPlus

     
    PDF in Xara

     
    The same behavior in AffinityDesigner

     
    There will be a lot of work for you guys. There are many thinks I miss in AD like blend-tool, mesh-fill, lines modifiyng like in AI, copy all atributes of one object and paste it in an other, transparency/fill tool may be intuitively like in Xara, 3D shadow, the possibility to create multi page documents etc. etc. etc.
     
    I looking forward to the end version of AD and wish You all the power to create the best vector drawing tool on the market.
     
    With the best wishes from Bavaria
