Jaran Gaarder Heggen got a reaction from Petar Petrenko in Footnotes/Endnotes
And by adding support for bibliography and Reference Tools like JabRef, Zotero and Medeley it will be even easier to make good references/endnotes/footnotes...
That way we can actually drop Words or other word prosessors for writing and go stright to Publisher to do all our work for books and reports that need references and bibliographies...
Would be great...
Jaran Gaarder Heggen got a reaction from Aga in Affinity Photo does not open linear DNG RAW files from Vuescan
When trying to open a linear RAW DNG file scanned with Vuescan, Affinity Photo only opens the embedded preview, not the actual full size Image File.
It doesn't open Nikon NEF files from Nikon Scan 4.x
Doesn't Affinity Photo at all support linear RAW scanned files from scanner software?
This will be a big problem for everyone that wish to save scanned Images as linear RAW to get as much info as possible from the scan so that they don't need to rescan their negatives for every time they wish a different version of it.
As of now, Affinity Photo is useless for me as I have tens of thousands of my Negatives scanned in this format, can you please fix this problem?

I'll add my vote for footnote and endnote support.
> Hope you can implement it in a similar way like in InDesign, . . .
Please, Affinity, whatever you do, don't look at InDesign's notes. Footnotes are at the document level in InDesign, they should be at the level of the story. That way each story can have its own numbering style and start number. It should also be possible (as it isn't in InDesign), to set the first footnote in a text as an uncued note. And users should be able to define their own sequence and appearance of note symbols (asterisk, pilcrow, dagger, double dagger, paragraph symbol, etc.).
> Visit any university library and you'll find that endnotes replaced footnotes long ago, perhaps in the 1950s.
Complete nonsense. Academic publishers prefer footnotes.
> In the era before computers, endnotes were far easier to typeset.
That's why notes were set as endnotes at some stage. Endnotes hung on for non-academic texts and in texts published by penny-pinching publishers, but nowadays footnotes are preferred by many. Footnotes are still more labour-intensive than endnotes, but the difference in effort is not nearly as big as it used to be.
> In today's world, their appearance at the bottom of a page is seen as clutter by most readers.
In my experience, readers just get annoyed by having to go to the end of the book (or worse, to the end of the chapter in multi-authored volumes).
Jaran Gaarder Heggen reacted to Seneca in Footnotes/Endnotes
Exactly. I don't want to scout for footnotes somewhere else in the book, particularly, where there are many of them.
Obviously, with a very few notes in the document placing them at the back of the chapter or at the end the book is acceptable and oftentimes desirable.
And I agree with Peter. We need greater flexibility than in indesign.
Jaran Gaarder Heggen reacted to garrettm30 in Footnotes/Endnotes
Are footnotes and endnotes currently possible (besides manually creating them, of course)? I haven't found them so far.
If not, this is a feature that I think would be widely used. I suspect it may take some time to get right if it is not yet under development, so I would understand if it is not a day-1 feature.
