  1. Every project I have involves exporting the book to Epub 3.0, so that would be a requirement for me.
  2. AfPub, based on a very quick test, does a pretty good job of importing a PDF that I created of a book in InDesign. Needs a lot more testing, but that might be a short term option. HOWEVER, the next very important step for me is missing. I cannot export to a reflowable Epub Is that feature also planned. It is needed for every project I have.
  3. That was also the first thing I tried. This is not going to work for me without the ability to open, at least, IDML files.
  4. There are other transformations on the js-ca.net website. They use a sequence of polar-cartesian and cartesian-polar transformations. Unforuntately, the bug in the Affinity implementation is still there, So I'll have to wait a bit longer to try this sequence in Affinity Photo.
  5. MANY thanks, John. I've been trying to see if we can use equations to create conformal mappings such as is possible in the (now free) Picture Window http://www.dl-c.com/site/downloads/pwp-apps.php I've not had much success so far. Maybe others here have less-rusty brains :-) Some examples: http://js-ca.net/a-shell-game
  6. Has anyone configured the buttons and dial on and Intuos 5 table to work with Affinity Photo?

    Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

    I really liked what I saw in the preview. I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that it will include exporting documents to the Epub format. That's my main use for Indesign CC which I use daily.

    Yes, Mark, it's working as expected on the desktop with that version. I just tested the surface dial with Sketchable on my Surface Pro 4. I've never used that program so don't know all the uses with the dial. But as far as I could tell, the menu items specific to the application showed with no problems and the ones I tried all seem to do something. The basic 4 functions of the dial, zoom volume scroll and undo all work as expected on the SP4. Anything I can do to help, please let me know. Jim

    Just FYI, the Surface Dial is not showing the APh options for a brush using V on the Surfae Pro 4 Jim

    Yes a document is open, Yes, the brush tool selected The radial blur works, but the surface dial still shows Volume Scroll Zoom, Undo. The only option that has any effect is the undo. If you cannot replicate this behaviour it must be something on my computer. Is anyone else using the Surface Dial with a desktop computer? I tried an uninstall and then reinstalled the Production version affinity-photo-, but the behaviour was the same.!!!

    Yes, very puzzling. I just tested it again with the same results. The update production version just shows options for Volume, Scroll, Zoom and Undo!! Is there any debugging information I could colelct that might help?

    A very odd situation. I updated the production version of APh on my Desktop computer to V this morning and the Surface dial no longer works with that version on the Desktop. I get the default Windows options, not your APh options. But when I run the Beta version of on the Desktop, the surface dial works as expected!!!

    Hi, Mark, Have you (or anyone else?) been able to replicate the problem of the surface dial with IUf not I need to find what's wrong on my Surface Pro 4. Jim
