  1. The keyboard shortcuts which are a must and common for every other DTP and text processing applications are missing. These are Ctrl+arrow down (up) and Ctrl+Shift+arrow down (up). Ctrl+arrow down (up) should move text cursor from one text paragraph to the beginning of another. Ctrl+Shift+arrow down (up) should select all affected paragraphs. These are the standards and if they are missing it looks very strange and unprofessional and not what people expect from a perfect DTP application.
  2. Hi, Here is the link: https://github.com/freedesktop/libreoffice-dictionaries/tree/master/ru_RU
  3. Turning on auto hyphenation for selected text in Russian causes application to crash (Affinity Publisher Public Beta - 1.7.0.145).
  4. If you want a Publisher to be really competitive, then implement in it ability to auto activate missing fonts, and you will make millions of designers happy. This feature should work similar to the one of Extensis Suitcase Fusion, that is it should engage user’s local disk font collections.
  5. When alignment rule selected other than “Selection bounds”, it does not work when applied through menu “Layer>Alignment” or through the assigned shortcut. Simply put, aligning objects via menu or shortcuts is possible only by the rule “Selection bounds”.
  6. If to select several paragraphs with paragraph style applied to them and there is no word with local formatting in the beginning of the very first selected paragraph but all the words with local formatting are just inside paragraphs, the “Reset Formatting” button is grayed out and there is no “legal” way to remove text local overrides. The way around: you have to intentionally make the very first word of the very first paragraph something like bold or italic then after this the “Reset Formatting” button is active.

  8. A big problem that it does not work, neither in APub nor in ADes. Try to select several paragraphs and you would not be able to override local formatting and keep intact character styles! I repeat it again: this is a huge problem. Because you cant manage long stories properly. It is very odd and i would say corrupt concept of Affinity team how they approach managing and applying text styles. And that is what keeps me from using Affinity products on a professional basis.
  9. I am in this business since 2001 and a user of InDesign since its version 2 (i guess it was year 2003). And this new AP feature looks to me as revolutionary and great.
  10. In AP with their master pages it is the same and even MORE powerful. It can do whatever you do with layers in InD and even more, with one click not even bothering to switch to the masters panel! Try for yourself, dig in and you’ll see. It’s awesome! I am just fascinated.
  11. When a whole paragraph or a bunch of paragraphs are selected AP doesn’t see character overrides and can’t remove them. It starts to see them only when a cursor placed inside overriding word. When a paragraph with mixed character styles is selected AP tells that there is no character styles in it, but if the first word has a style AP indicates it.
  12. Instead of global layers AP is supposed to have global masters, that is you can apply several (unlimited!!) master pages to a single page. I think this is a great feature!
