I am left wondering if the same people who are criticizing Publisher for no InDesign import/export and Quark import/export will also be on the Adobe and Quark forums criticizing them for no Publisher import/export? For me, this suite of products is the first real alternative to the Creative Cloud solution and at a fraction of the price, I will find ways of working around any shortcomings that may present themselves.
I've seen a lot of very negative comments in these forums, which IMHO are a tad unwarranted. It is an early BETA after all.
My congrats to the Affinity team on what promises to be a great alternative for professional designers and web developers.
