  1. Thanks
    Natters got a reaction from Reto in 3 page spread   
    There are times when a 3 page spread would be useful (as in I currently use on a regular basis in InDesign): book cover designs, tri-fold pamphlet design etc. Is this something that will work with the official release?

    I'd agree with the need for crop marks for folding, the ability to change the spine width is essential as well as exporting the cover to one cohesive PDF for CreateSpace etc is ESSENTIAL. Dave Harris, 90% of the users will be using this for multi-page applications, and while I get what you say, I don't think that is how most designers will expect it to work. Spines are often edited on-the-fly as page numbers fluctuate.

    Maybe this is because book document have longer kife than illqsutration or photos. These are more one shot. Books evolve or are used as templates. That maybe why we need to open existing InDesign documents.

    That was also the first thing I tried. This is not going to work for me without the ability to open, at least, IDML files.

    IDMl import would be a really nice feature

    It seems that there is no way to import an InDesign document. (This is the first thing I tried to do with Publisher.)
    I have quite a lot of Indesign document I would like to work on with Publisher (one way import - no need to reexport to Indesign).
    Is there a way in the current beta to do it ? Do you plan to have this feature before official launch ?
    Great work anyway.

    InDesign used to be like that, but it introduced the function around cs4 or cs5. It looks like nothing but it's super useful, for example for book covers (to adjust the width of the spine, which changes with paper weight etc.), to make flyers with automatic fold marks etc..
    So I think it's a feature you should plan to add sooner or later if you want to compete with indesign

    I'd second (or third) this request, certainly for book covers and tri-fold leaflets etc. Currently setting up a book cover/jacket or tri-fold leaflet artwork as a single page means
    a) no crop marks on the exported PDF indicating the spine width or fold marks for a tri-fold and
    b) a lot of manual adjustment of the page elements should there be a need to change the spine width
    Would be 'nice' to have the functionality of ID in this respect with the ability to have unlimited pages in a spread but certainly three pages for book covers with the ability to adjust the width of the centre page independently of the front and back cover to accommodate changes in spine width which then includes the addition of crop/fold marks for the spine in addition to the crop marks for the front and back covers.
    I suspect this is going to be a heavily requested feature...

    I'm with iaing on this too, i need the same functionality for large format signage.
    Do you think it'll be added at any stage?

    That's a big miss for me - I often design exhibition panels where I need to put maybe 7 or 8 panels side by side; I need to save the whole thing as a spread for client to visualise it, but then save pdfs as separate panels to send to print. Indesign currently copes fine with this. I realise I can use Designer for that with Artboards, but the image placement controls, Resource Manager and text controls already make Publisher a more attractive prospect for this sort of work - but not if limited to 2-page spreads.
