    While useful, the Book option in Publisher is not essential as you seem to be implying. Some professional use Book facility in inDesign or QuarkXpress some don't and both produce very long docs. What I'm saying is that we should not exaggerate the importance of that feature. 1 An interesting assessment - it is definitely a feature that I cannot live without and prevents me from making the switch. It is absolutely a feature that I consider essential to my work and workflows. InDesign-InCopy and the management of large documents is a mature solution by Adobe. I hope that future releases of Affinity Publisher can offer a more robust solution that would convince me to drop my (expensive) subscription.
  2. With every beta release of Publisher, I immediately check for File - New - Book, only to let out a sigh of disappointment. If the app wants to be considered as a serious contender to other publishing tools, it needs to cater to more than pamphlet designers. Come on Affinity - I believe in you. Lift your game. We are hungry for a viable replacement tool.
  3. As a self-publisher of books I was eager to see a serious competitor to InDesign whose pricing gauges any small profits made by us humble authors. A feature I use a lot is the InDesign Book feature collating several InDesign Chapter documents. Having a master style header document that synchronises all formatting across the many chapters is really useful. I am new to Affinity Publisher and wondering whether this is something I am missing or is this something missing from the application?
