      Please do not post directly into staff status areas. Serif do not encourage this method of communication but do leave it open for forum members to contact each other.

  1. This feature isn't on the roadmap so we can't commit it do it but it's something we are looking into for a future version. You can already produce good colour accuracy but just not with the profiles from CCP.
  2. This should hopefully make the 1.7 update This should hopefully make the 1.7 update later this year.
  3. If you feel this way then you are possible using the wrong Application.

    Something Else Wrong in Masking

    This is working fine for me here. Can you post the image you are using as it is very image dependant. The other image posted here looks very noisy and would cause issues for most refinement algorithms.
  5. All vector applications including Ai have traditionally produced raster data in the same way. It does look like Ai now does edge anti-aliasing differently. I'm not sure how recent the change in Ai was but I also noticed the quality of their anti-aliasing is now not as good. We can visit this again in the future but at the moment this is how we and all other vector applications render edges for off pixel boundaries. We will have to experiment but it does look like we will lose some quality though.
  6. I would say that HTML export for electronic publications is fine but using it to create webpages in my opinion is not. The modern web is so much more than fixed layout, static, non-semantic text and pictures.
  7. The initial release of Publisher will not support ePub. Future updates are likely to support fixed layout ePub but this will be confirmed on the roadmap when we release.
  8. Publisher won't have HTML export on the initial release and even in the future it will probably only be supported within an electronic publication export. Publisher output is not intended for webpages.
  9. We have no plans on further previews before the beta. You can always ask questions here and we will try and answer them.
  10. Also, how do you paste your layers in? Do you copy from a particular application and then just paste or do you have a different workflow?
  11. If you save your document and load it back in, does it draw correctly at all zooms?
  12. Our ability to produce professional software is somewhat governed by income from those products. Income for us is calculated by copies x price and our current price point is simply designed to produce the greatest income. Increasing the cost of the product will not increase our ability to make competitive PRO software.
