  1. It's a very long thread and most aspects have been already said but my 2 cents to add: I bought Affinity Publisher for occassionall internal usage. To be used as a real live publishing App producing a lot of pages it definitly lacks an API for automation and for replacing/updating parts of the content. Publishing should't be seen as a mouse / human task only. Publishing is in many cases just one channel (of many) for content. The discussion which language would fit best (JS, TS, Python, AppleScript) has not the same priority as the scope and coverage of that API. AppleScript should be seen as a nice to have since it is locked on MacOS but it shouln't be too much effort to provide additional bindings like JS, Pyhton, AppleScript once there is a robust and more or less complete C++ API. So it is not only a question of Scripting Language choice but also a question of API/SDK and PlugIn-Support. Since there is no concept for SDK/Integration available by today I'm wondering if there will be (object oriented) Scripting-Support available at all outside the marketing discussion ...
  2. mission succeeded: Ordering via email works as expected. It took several days but finally we got a correct inovice respecting both VAT IDs. Lessons learned: never use the Apple AppStore if you you need an invoice for a company and be patient. This works for the Mac and Windows version!

  4. @Adam: claiming back VATis not possible for software (only for delivered material goods) and not possible for organisations which are invoicing incl. VAT like you and us. to rephrase: Serif should state on the Check out something like: "Sorry - we are doing like Apple: We only create invoices for consumers (not for companies as required in the EU). Even we collect VAT you will not be able to offset this VAT in your VAT tax declaration" Source: s. https://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/business/vat/eu-vat-rules-topic/vat-refunds_en
  5. Damn - Apple says: Apple Support sends an invoice with our VAT No but collects VAT without a German VAT No which is rubbish ... Where does the collected tax money go? In EU VAT has to be paid in the country of the buyer and compies should get the invoice without VAT since they have the duty to pay the tax in reverse. So Apple Store is a no go for companies and should be a no go for others as long Apple ignores and avoids european tax rules. Did I get something wrong? I'm wondering why all the affinity mac users accept this since I assume that most of them are not buying the software for private use - or are most of the mac users willing to pay tax twice and they don't care the ~12€ tax (they have to pay months later ...)?
