  1. Well, it looks like we don't need to worry about this. I just created a new document in the shipping Publisher, switched to Font Explorer and activated a new font, switched back to Publisher and the newly activated font was available. Well done Affinity!
  2. I've been promoting this app in the RPG design Facebook groups I'm part of too. I'm a full time graphic designer at a university, but used to do all of the layout for the RPGs I published. My main concern with it right now is support for third party font managers and how it deals with tables (my game's rulebook had over a hundred tables with some of them multi page). I still need to dig into the latest beta though (1.7.0.312). It's definitely a pro app and not a warmed over word processor. VERY promising.
  3. Well glad to hear that it's on the list for planned updates. Without that feature, long document production is basically a non-starter, at least anything with more graphics than a novel. I just hope it's high on this list.
  4. I noticed that too this afternoon and set it to Linked preferred when I was making a new doc. However it didn't seem to work properly; the first image I placed was linked, but subsequent images were embedded. Although I'm still not sure how Publisher's Picture Frame and its content work together at the moment, so it's possible I'm just doing it wrong.
  5. Flipping this, if you have a square picture frame that already has content in it, can you change its shape using the direct selection tool or pen tool and grabbing the points?
  6. Seconded please. Font auto-activation is a must and a plug-in architecture to use FontExplorer or Suitcase or whatever others may use. Thanks.
  7. I would also hope that when you import a file, say an EPS, that contains Pantone or other solid ink colors, it would automatically add them to your document's swatch palette.
  8. I second the ability to add the gutter value to the toolbar next to # of columns and to divide the page structure into columns. Saves needing to create guides that match up to text box columns.

    Templates

    In regards to templates, will you be able to save or export a Publisher file as a Publisher template? I'm looking for this app to be useful in higher-ed where we have a lot of people making stuff who aren't designers. The pros would like to create templates for the non-pros to use, and Publisher seems like it will be the right price for admins and the like to purchase. I see us having a big site license for Publisher and then the central administration designers can produce templates that all of the department admins can use. Thanks.
