  1. Any plan for an app that allow us to uninstall after effects?
  2. Hi Callum. I agree with, it would be great. When I was young I use Indesign, I save a lot of time organising layers in Photoshop and Illustrator so, when I import those files to Indesign, I was able to choose which layers I would like to see in that place. The same file (a single file) was enough for lots of imports, just choosing which layers (or layer comps) I need. Please, if it's not asking too much, would you consider implementing this? Really, the workflow is much easier this way. Now, I'm doing the wrong way: place a Designer file in Publisher, double click, choose the layers I need, copy, back to Publisher file, paste and repeat for other places. Then I simple remove the original Designer file I place and finally save. 8 steps, when I should need only 3: place, choose layers, repeat. Thanks a lot.
  3. I've been trying Linux (Ubuntu) and really miss applications like Affinity's, to work professionally. GIMP helps, InkSape helps, Scribus helps but they are far from ideal, lack integration Affinity offers. As I said, soon I'll have to quit using mac and really don't want to use Windows. I'll go to linux and if I don't have affinity there I'll do my best with these above.
  4. I'm about to quit using Macs, because they became so expensive I can't afford buying one anymore. In Brazil, take the Mac price and times 2 at least. That's what they cost here. If I have no choice, I'll move to windows. But if you guys make Linux's versions, I'll buy them gladly. I already have MacOS' and Window's licenses for all three. Please, think about it. Thanks.
  5. I got a weird situation I couldn't understand: before I create a second frame, the text is huge. Then, it go back to normal. But the last word (in my images), if goes to second frame, lose its previous atributes. before I
  6. Hi. I've just noticed I can't grab the file icon at MacOS bar and drag it to other place, as I use to do with other apps. Nor COMMAND+click the name to see its path... Am I missing some configuration? Screen Recording 2019-06-09 at 17.51.34.mov
  7. In a post from 2015 they listed the filters, and they're there. I think they changed... It means, no more Minimum and Maximum blur, right?
  8. I had a warning because Publisher beta wasn't downloaded from Windows Store. Microsoft asked if I want to install Affinity Designer, instead. I said no thanks and asked to install anyway. Was that your problem? About, when Publisher asked me to download the update, it pointed me to 312 version. Which was the one I had. I try again, and it downloaded 312 again. I went to affinity website and am downloading the 337.
  9. But they never said they won't do it. Just need a little more time to do they the right way. And probably we'll be able to test it a lot before it goes to commercial. I understand I was "gifted" with the opportunity to help developing a better app. Beta testing is this, we don't have the final version, we're helping build it. I really don't complaint about data merge lacking (or that I can't import my GBs of INDD and save a lot of work), because this is a beta version. A going work. I'm testing the best I can, trying to find holes and bugs (like the diacritics problem I have when writing in portuguese -- like typing ' and a to get "á", which is giving me " 'á " instead). Let's wait. Be patient... This is a real pro app, able to face Indesign straight in the eyes and say "I'm better than you and a lot cheaper".
  10. Well, I'm really interested and anxious about data merge but, guys, let's be patient. The Affinity guys are doing a GREAT job, delivering excellent product. I'm pretty sure they're listening to us. They said they have some other stuff to take care before. I truly believe they'll add data merge to Publisher in the due time. I'm waiting, and testing other features they already done as much as I can. I must say I'm very happy using Publisher beta as my first app, already rebuilding some INDD files I have from scratch, testing all my workflow. Be patient.
  11. I don't understand why you are moaning about our needs. The problem isn't text or linked files. The problem is text styles, color palletes, hifenization exceptions and a lot of things you can't get from PDF. And you're wrong: sometimes I receive indd files. And I don't want to use Indesign anymore. If you don't have this problem, lucky you. But, please, if this is not a problem to you, just watch.
  12. Well, not thousands, today. But dozens. Newsletters, magazines, reports... Files I've been use year after year, changing here and there, but based on a structure (text styles, master pages, color palettes for instance) that I would have to rebuild. The point is: I don't have time to rebuild all those files. I'm still using Adobe CS5 (I don't wanna pay per month to use Indesign). If I have a way to import/convert/use indeed files in Publisher it would save me a lot of time. And sleep. Do that using a PDF file is the same of doing that from zero. I know how to do that, I can do that, but I don't want to do that, if I have another way.
