I have been using Affinity Publisher since it’s early beta version and it has pretty much completely replaced Adobe InDesign for me. In general I am super happy with all 3 Affinity products which have become the main tools for my professional work. There are though still a few issues where I unfortunately do not get the performance I've been used to from InDesign. One extremely important thing for me and other designer colleagues of mine is precise fine tuning of justified text. In InDesign you can adjust the justification settings to get a pretty much perfect text box without weird spacing and gaps between words. My colleagues and I have until now been unable to get satisfactory results using Publisher’s settings so I would kindly ask the Affinty team working on Publisher to take an extra look into this feature and try and get it up to par with what's possible in InDesign. Maybe we have all been doing something wrong though I doubt it because I have heard this complaint in the forums before. I am including a screenshot of the settings I have been using for years in InDesign which pretty much give perfect results every time. I have yet to find the same ‘magic’ formula in Publisher and until then this will unfortunately be a major issue for me. Thanks for looking into this
I bought Affinity Publisher to typeset novels to a sellable (professional) standard. Right now I'm looking for tips on getting justified right and left margins to work. (Go easy on me if I haven't used precisely the right terminology. I'm not an industry professional typesetter. I'm a novelist who bought this software for indie publishing). Right now, I am preparing a children's chapter book for publication. The large font (13 pt) required for easy-to-read books comes with its own challenges. Right and left margins need to be justified. Any help I can get typesetting my book with justified margins (without gaping spaces in the middle of lines) is appreciated. Thanks.
