    purveyor27 got a reaction from ch1ptune in Is it possible to package a project in Publisher?   
    Packaging the document to include all assets and fonts etc ( like InDesign)  is a feature that would be 100% mandatory for me to be able to switch from InDesign to Affinity Publisher.  and oh boy do I ever want to switch to affinity Publisher!!!

    purveyor27 got a reaction from coso in 3 page spread   
    This is an absolute must-have feature.  three page spreads (and larger) are very common for me and I would absolutely need this feature in order to switch from InDesign. 
    Also with the ability to adjust the page size of each page on a spread (like InDesign) and output with fold/trim bleed marks etc.  I do a lot of tri-fold brochures and wide format print (as previously mentioned) and i have to be able to set files up this way.

    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'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?

    purveyor27 reacted to Hangman in 3 page spread   
    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...

    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.

    Oh wow! Oh wow! Oh wow! ;-)

    A big well done to the team! Publisher is a really superb piece of work, with features way in advance of what I imagined you would be able to deliver in a first release (I remember the launch version of InDesign, and how far it was from Quark Xpress — Publisher, on the other hand, seems almost no distance away from InDesign). And I love the way you’ve implemented some of the features, too, with the panache we‘ve come to expect from Affinity.

    I can imagine some pretty long faces in San Jose this morning. Just please don‘t let Adobe buy you out because you’re killing their revenue stream!

    wonderful.  thanks!  
    Now I do have a suggestion... there should be a LOCK for column gutters so you can adjust them together.  seems tedious to have to adjust each column space individually, when, in most cases you'd want all spacing the same.  
    Another note: I think its an AMAZING feature that you can adjust the width of each column independently!  This is something that InDesign is lacking.  great feature!!

    purveyor27 reacted to Peter Werner in Phantom Sliders   
    In the latest public beta (1.7.0.57), sliders from some dialog boxes seem to persist on screen, even when hiding Publisher. They show on top of other applications and remain interactive, even if their owner dialog box has been closed/hidden. Quitting Publisher removes them.
    OS version is OS X 10.11.6.

    Make sure you have "text frame" panel visible. That's under View -> Studio. It can do individual, different value gutters. The "other" app can't do it !

    Yes, open the text frame window, and it shows you all columns including the space in-between:

    Can't seem to select part of placeholder text, only from the whole text box-full, might want to highlight a section as a pull quote for example.
