  1. I just know that both InDesign and Quark (I own both of them) are capable of creating good looking and balanced justified text boxes without ugly gaps. Publisher does not unfortunately match up here at the moment and I hope thay change this.
  2. Well, I think a feature like this is a must and a basic feature if Publisher wants to be an app for professionals that competes with the likes of InDesign. I hope they get around to it soon. For this reason alone I might have to do the final design of a particular book project I am working on that requires precise justificatied text in InDesign and believe me this is something I wish not to do.
  3. I have been using Affinity Publisher since it’s early beta version and it has pretty much completely replaced Adobe InDesign for me. In general I am super happy with all 3 Affinity products which have become the main tools for my professional work. There are though still a few issues where I unfortunately do not get the performance I've been used to from InDesign. One extremely important thing for me and other designer colleagues of mine is precise fine tuning of justified text. In InDesign you can adjust the justification settings to get a pretty much perfect text box without weird spacing and gaps between words. My colleagues and I have until now been unable to get satisfactory results using Publisher’s settings so I would kindly ask the Affinty team working on Publisher to take an extra look into this feature and try and get it up to par with what's possible in InDesign. Maybe we have all been doing something wrong though I doubt it because I have heard this complaint in the forums before. I am including a screenshot of the settings I have been using for years in InDesign which pretty much give perfect results every time. I have yet to find the same ‘magic’ formula in Publisher and until then this will unfortunately be a major issue for me. Thanks for looking into this
  4. Hey there, thanks a lot. Sounds like a solid alternative. Thanks for your help :) Kind regards, Ian
  5. A feature I use very often in Photoshop and which I seem to be missing in Affinity Photo is the option to duplicate a layer from one open document to another. I use this feature on a day to day basis and I think it is very handy. Would be great to have that in Photo. I am a new user so I hope I didn't miss it if it exists already by any chance, but since I didn't find it in the help section I guess it isn't available. Thanks!
