  1. I waited, and posted requests for updates, and waited some more ...and so far I feel like the wait was totally justified. This is shaping up to be the app I had hoped it would be, and I'm so excited! I've messed around with it a little. Now I'm working on some basic formatting for a playtest document of a role playing game I've been working on. Hoping to see how it handles with a larger file.
  2. This is the application I came to Affinity for, honestly. I've dropped money on existing products as a commitment to buying-in to the Affinity ecosystem, and I've been pretty happy with Designer. That said, I'm all about this product being worth the wait vs being available right this second. Take your time. Get it right. ..no pressure.

    Affinity Publisher

    Love the image! All in good fun. I'm chomping at the bit for Publisher, but I also want them to take the time necessary to produce another stunning piece of software.
  4. I really need the random option in order to make the move from Adobe. A common technique in speculative cartography is to generate a few pages of clouds with thresholds adjusted to generate "organic" shapes that can be combined to create continents/land forms for the base of our maps. The process really depends on those shapes being random.
  5. I use markdown for basically everything! It's ideal for technical and academic writing. Keeping everything plain text, and human readable, ensures compatibility and portability. The ability to maintain a single source for content, which can easily be exported to any format, is ideal. Divorcing style from content allows for the application of the most appropriate styling in each finished product. InDesign doesn't support importing markdown directly. I currently work around that by using Pandoc. to convert markdown to ICML (InCopy) and then using Place in an InDesign file. It isn't as painless as I'd like, but it works and I have to keep Pandoc around anyway as it's ideal for easily converting markdown to HTML, ePub, Word, and a variety of other formats. I'd kill for APub to handle the import directly. The *ideal situation* would be a Place option, so the APub document will update automatically when the markdown file is edited. Otherwise, I'll need APub to support the import of a file type I can export to via Pandoc to preserve my current workflow.
  6. +1. I haven't moved over to any Affinity products at all yet (though I played with the previews). I use Photoshop and Illustrator but, as a desktop publisher, InDesign is where I spend most of my time. I am aching to free myself from the Adobe yoke, and will absolutely be committing to switching over to Affinity on all counts as soon as I have Affinity Publisher in my grubby paws.
  7. Having Adobe headaches today. Had to stop in and remind myself that something better is coming. I'll be ditching the Adobe line completely once I finally have an Affinity solution for all three of my primary Adobe products. Counting the days...
  8. Thanks for asking this. I had the same question. desktop publishing is really at the center of my work, so I've been waiting to move to Affinity Designer and Photo until I have working solution for that. For now I'm sadly still paying out the nose for CC, so I can use InDesign.
