  1. I bought Affinity Publisher just because it is occasionally helpful, but mainly to support Serif/Affinity as they continue to develop their products. However, I wish to add my voice to the cry for support for book publishing - both in paper and eBook(although Calibre can handle PDF->eBook so that's a secondary wish). But footnotes(and endnotes), bibliography with references etc is vital. For now, I'm using MS Word - and a decent Word importer would be a step forward! - or an ancient version of FrameMaker (v6), which was the best book publishing tool ever until Adobe got their hands on it and wrecked it! What I really would like is to use Word (or LibreOffice) for content creation then import it into Publisher for presentation. At present, I can do my cover in Publisher but everything internal has to be done in Word (or imported into FrameMaker).
  2. Yes, thanks, lots of requests. Frankly I'm less concerned about features like face recognition etc, I just want to rate and tag my pictures and access them quickly without resorting to file manager dialogs. The other, smarter, things are nice to have but low priority compared to the basic import/catalog tools.
  3. Thanks, I'd never have guessed DAM! What does it stand for? Digital Asset Management is the best I can imagine? Alan G.
  4. The only thing stopping me from adopting Affinity photo as my one stop shop for photo processing is the lack of a library or catalogue feature. I find this odd since Serif used to do a nice little tool called Media Plus that would have done the job well. As it is, I still have to use Lightroom to catalog my work, so I wind up using it to develop as well. Consequently Affinity only gets used for a fraction of what I'd like to use it for. Surely an import persona couldn't be too hard to add?
