  1. I checked the specs of this new version of Publisher. There are many nice features in there. What seems to be missing is the export of a tagged and accessible PDF (PDF/UA). Also I don't see how I could publish a digital book (EPUB3) with this app. I really hoped for some competition for Adobe InDesign which is capable of such output. Even Word produces such accessible PDFs and EPUB (with WordToEpub plugin). With the output of Publisher still focused on print only I don't have many reasons to use it. All digital documents for governmental institutions and, within a few years in the EU, for many commercial companies as well, need to be accessible. Besides, I don't want to exclude anyone from using my documents. I don't mind if I need to do some extra work with a tool like Adobe Acrobat for PDF or Sigil, Calibre, Ace by Daisy for EPUB3, but now I need Word, InDesign or some other app to create the document or book when I really would have liked to use Affinity Publisher.
  2. Request: EPUB versions of the workbooks. This will help keep us up to date when the software is updated, for those of us that bought the workbooks. Why it's important? Let's say a few years down the road you guys have updated all the software and added a lot more features; the workbooks won't cover these changes, but a EPUB or PDF adaptation could be updated and it could be provided to registered accounts that have bought the workbooks already. I also would like the ability to have the content on my computer or phone, rather than having to lug around workbooks. Shipping of the workbooks to people in different parts of the world can be limiting. An epub or .pdf version eliminates that barrier. Easier to update the books as needed. You save on printing & shipping costs. Less stuff to carry around. Environmentally friendly. Quicker access.
  3. I've created a booklet using Publisher 1.7.1 by assembling text from several sources direct into Publisher, and then tweaking the result. So the text in Publisher is now the only "master." I now want also to create a Kindle version, with flowing text. I have PagePlus X9, Sigil, Libre Office, and various Amazon tools. If possible, I do not want to install / buy yet more software. Recently, I've published other books from PagePlus X9 in flowing ePub3, then used Amazon's tools to convert into Kindle formats. This has worked well: Amazon has reported no problems. Questions: What is the best way to convert a Publisher document into a flowing Kindle eBook? What is the best way to extract the story text from a Publisher document, for use elsewhere? Do I really have to recreate this document in PagePlus X9 (or another program) before exporting it as a flowing ePub? Are there other tools which would make any of this easier?
  4. Hi I am self publishing poetry and would like to be able to save it in either Kindle/epub format that works and keeps my formatting I do not have pics, other than the cover. I have tried other conversion routes (free only) but nothing works. Any ideas as to how I can convert from my affinity publisher work, or can Affinity include this option in the export options? Thanks Gillie
  5. I can not believe there was no export capability to produce an Epub2 file, let alone an eub3 file that meets the Daisy Consortium standards.
  6. Hey guys, I wanted to make a fixed layout ePub3 ebook and a 8 X 10 inches paperback to publish to kdp, iBook and plsybookstore. The book is full of photos and vector lines and also texts on each page. I have been using Pixelmator to edit my photos(jpgs), I made a Pixelmator document with same dimension as the photos and C&P all of them inside and remove the background and color edit the subject. Then I make documents in Affinity Designer(one for ebook and one for paperback, 1875 X 2500 pixels, 8 x 10 inches respectively). I C&P(so no lose in quality from the conversion in export) one by one of the edited photos into AD and resize them(the photos doesn’t get compressed or change in dpi from the resize), I places all the images on the location I wanted and draw all the vectors and insert all the texts. I prepared all the contents on AD snd arranged them like how they gonna looks like in final book. Now is the tricky part, I chosen InDesign because the new Affinity Publisher doesn’t export as ePub yet and InDesign is the standard. But I really in right pocket situation so I can only use the trial, that’s why I prepare everything in AD. Now I not really have a clue how do I import everything to InDesign, back then I thought just remove the texts and export the pages as a jpg/png images and paste it in InDesign then add the texts to the page in InDesign. I heard this is not ok. And I know there’s a place tool in InDesign but do I really need to use it? Can you guys let me know what should I do? Extra: In AD there’s 2 text tool, artistic and text frame tools, I like to use artistic text tool because the text frame is exactly touching the highest and widest edge of the texts, so I can align the frame at the any location accurately. Does the text tool in InDesign do this or the frame is surrounded by the spacing of glyph too?
  7. 1) Serif is on their way to "brilliance" as they say in UK! 2) AP is desktop publishing orientated, I get that, but let's face it, sadly, hard copy is on the way out, basically for everything, books, magazines, newspapers, etc. In USA, as soon as Barnes and Noble closes, hard copy will take an unsustainable hit. IMO. 3) Most Affinity users have dropped Adobe due to subscriptions (awful idea), so we would like to get away from proprietary Adobe PDF format also. (of course, should keep it as secondary format). 4) Please institute the open source EPUB format for export of digital documents. It has multimedia capability, sound, video( or animation) as well as fixed or fluid format. IMO the fluid "style" is only viable for novels with minimal graphics ("fluid" EPUB graphics don't scale or zoom well on devices). The "fixed" EPUB format is brilliant for textbooks (looks beautiful on iPad Pro 10.5, portrait style ) with lots of graphics and diagrams TOC, Index, and small sound and video animations etc. I am trying to move from Mac Pages to AP, but I use the fixed EPUB in Pages with a lot of sound and HOPEFULLY I won't have to wait to long for SERIF to roll out EPUB, hint hint LOL. 5) This EPUB digital format addition will really get the suite of Affinity products some "press", so to speak, and put them on their way to fame and fortune for years in the future, when the "printing press" disappears. 6) Thanks PS: I included an attached unfinished project, titled "Attitude Instrument Flying Workbook" in EPUB format (from Mac Pages) for everyone to view. It has sound in the introduction. The images are done in AD and AP. Maybe in the future everything can be done in Affinity. File size 31mb. There are plenty of free EPUB readers for MAc, Windows, Linux, as well as the usual culprits iBooks, Adobe digital editions, etc. Please view this document on an Android or preferably iPad Pro 10.5. I used a slightly larger 14pt font and small margins so a single page looks nice in portrait without zooming in fixed EPUB. I feel a minimum size device for reading digitally, comfortably is 10-11", although any size (iPhone etc) can be zoomed or scrolled in EPUB "fixed". Attitude_Instrument_Flying_Workbook_V2.8.epub
  8. I was wondering how close to the original document would be if you exported APub files as a .pdf and then converted the .pdf into an epub with a program like Calibre. Would your document look the same as the pdf, even if you had formatting and picutres? Or would it just need so much work that it would not be worth it? Thank for any experience on this topic. I REALLY can't wait for ePub to be added.
  9. Dear developers, I use PagePlus, and can import Word documents directly, and export to EPUB and MOBI too. I'm a book creator, but I cannot use these functions in Publisher. I see can import TXT and RTF to text frame tool (read in this topic too), but I can use clipboard too for paste. Export to only "Affinity standards", nowhere EPUB/MOBI export option. Will be these import and export options in final version? PDF is not enough for ebook publishing... And I hope I will import PagePlus projects too.
  10. I would love it if Affinity Publisher outputted all standard eBook formats and allowed for interactivity in eBooks where supported by file type. Interactive features would include: popups with texts animation sound files ability to turn features on or off within the book page jumps on choice Since Affinity is the future and interactive books are the future, seems a perfect match to me. Right now, there are some add-on interactive features programs or software that are limited to very specific outputs; Kotobee, iBooks Author, Aquafadas, inkling, Interact Builder, DemiBooks, Atavist, Talespring and others. My perfect workflow would be to draft the book, illustrate it in Designer (with Designer allowing frame animation), design in Publisher including any interactivity, and export across a wide variety of formats. I realize this is a huge technical challenge, but it is my fantasy workflow. Thank you.
  11. There are a number of requests here for InDesign/Word DOCX/IDML/Markdown import as well as EPUB export, but nothing really looking at the big picture of how this should fit within a workflow of producing content for web and in print. Most of these seem to imply replicating InDesign's functionality – but these features could be much better implemented. In my experience, InDesign's text import and EPUB export are both rather grim. The Word import function doesn't import styles in a particularly useful manner, often taking far too much from the source document that then needs to be cleaned out. I use Pandoc instead to convert DOCX to Markdown and clean up the file with a text editor. I can then export to HTML or EPUB for a Web version, and ICML for a nicely typeset print version with InDesign. Rather than have Affinity Publisher become bloated with Web features that become quickly outdated and don't work properly in the first place, as InDesign has, I would like to see it focus on professional typesetting for print while integrating with other applications to enable technology-independent content creation.
  12. Hi Guys, I got the announcement for the new Affinity Photo Workbook the other day. I would give you money immediately both workbooks were offered as a ePub ONLY download at a reasonable price. Are there any intentions to offer ePub's?
  13. Here is a link to the Affinity Photo Help File in Epub Format for Version 1.5 (Updated December 7, 2016) works great in Ibooks. Very convenient to have in a portable format - or to use side by side with Affinity on your computer. Link: https://app.box.com/s/bjv07ey7ryvqbg16zh4yjazcd65uw85c
 Alternate Link: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AjuKWjfPlktwgfoEGfpoz65qzzsz_A Just download it to your ipad and pick "open in Ibooks" or download it to your computer and email it to yourself and then pick "open in iBooks" from your iPad. The "un-named" entry at the top is the table of contents as in the help file and it scrolls on my iPad. However it does block the screen content. If you choose to scroll the "table of contents" from Ibooks it is not hierarchically organized - but the screen is full. Best way to find something after that is to do a search. Its very comprehensive. (My continuing love/hate relationship with technology.) Its a spectacular resource on an iPad Pro. If you have an android tablet, go to Google Play and search for "epub reader".
  14. Have changed this to an Epub for 1.5 (Updated Dec 7, 2016 with Gold Master Help File) Here is a link to the Affinity Photo Help File in Epub Format for Version 1.5 (December 7, 2016) - works great in Ibooks.

  15. Hi Just wondering if there will be more functionality when trying to create epub or similar formats for leaflets and flyers. We have a huge library of documents in MS Word format and want to provide better web access to these. Yes the old Pageplus could export to epub or html, but ideally we like something like the new range of software apps coming out that allow for video, audio etc and best of all are capable of being adaptive to suit whichever device is access them.. Might be a tall order list, but if you don't ask.... If this funcationality is already available in either Pageplus X7 or X9 (other than the 'publish as' function) then someone please do point me in the right direction :-)
