  1. No sorry, it was simple flyers that I could have done with Designer but I wanted the benefits of the better control of the text blocs that Publisher offers.
  2. Small length problem with the missing font notification. The current text "Le document comporte des polices manquantes" translates to "The document has missing fonts". It could easily be shortened to "Document’s missing fonts" witch in French would be "Polices du document manquantes". Otherwise you need to allow text wrapping or define the notification width depending on the content.
  3. I used it for simple jobs and everything was perfect. The most important I think is to remember it is still a beta and to check your PDF thoroughly.
  4. Affinity Designer download is about 260 Mo and 1.2 Go once installed. Affinity Photo is about the same. Now Publisher is still in beta so my guess is there is some debugging code there that will be removed but it won't be significant. As for your rant that it was better before, todays applications are vastly more complex and capable. Would you get back to applications from that era ? That alone could justify the gain but there is also the fact that nowadays icon resources and images are also more common and bigger then before. On macOS a simple application icon with all different states can weight more than 1Mo. If you open the app package you can see that the icons assets weights more than 250 Mo and there are thousands of them.

    Image Cropping

    Being able to crop or define a slice from a selection could be really useful when creating macros. I currently have a few hundred images from a client where I need to crop the extra white border, I was hoping to achieve this with Affinity Photo and a little macro but it seems I’ll have to go back to Photoshop for this.

    Unusually large SVG export

    Another day of weird behaviour, I exported a circle around a euro symbol. With a quick optimisation I ended up with the following code: <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 12 12" stroke-linejoin="round"> <path d="M6.077 0l0.077 0.002 0.077 0.002 0.077 0.004

manually and replaced the last block: <circle cx="6" cy="6" r="5.5" style="stroke-width:1; fill:none"/> It turns out that the small block is the complete euro symbol whereas the huge one is the circle. Since AD does know it is a circle, why not create a circle element with a stroke-width or a path with 8 points if for a reason you can't rely on the stroke-width ?
  7. It isn't well known but Microsoft has done a great lot of work regarding fonts and they did release a few high quality fonts lately
  8. I understand but know that it will be a welcome addition
  9. @Dave Harris Any chance you are also working on optical kerning ? As for optical margin alignement I didn’t ask for it before thinking you’ll get to it when working on Affinity Publisher but I didn’t find anything new on that side.
  10. When I saw this option I was hoping for automatic text kerning but instead it seems to be Indesign optically margin alignement with some nice new options. Can anyone tell me if the optical kerning is hidden somewhere ?
  11. I’m sure that for the developers it doesn’t feel like that
  12. Hi Affinity team, the end of the month is coming really really fast ! Is there a further delay to expect or you are waiting to the last minute in order to polish the code ? PS. Deadlines are the worst
  13. I would love to see Affinity build a tool like the now unsupported Colorschemer studio (mac OS). I know that the team as already a lot to do and that there already are options to create complementary swatches but it doesn’t allow the same feedom in color exploration. It could be either build in the current apps or as a small stand alone tool.
  14. Just to bring up the subject again since a (busy) year after there is no update on this part. I would really love to be able to use the artboard or the parent layer or group as a path variable (or even the artboard parent layer/group). This would make life so much easier to prepare lists of assets.
  15. For that I think a limited application that would be more a reader would be nice.
