When working on design presentations, I find it helpful to link in files, so that I can edit them and have the edits reflect in my presentation. This also allows me to keep the file-size manageable for large A0 and up posters. In Indesign, it is possible to change which layers are visible from linked Photoshop or Illustrator files. Thanks to this, I don't need to export five individual files that I need to manage separately. Each update to one file, means I have to relink multiple others (if I am not planning to overwrite them). So could we get the ability to change visibility states of linked Affinity files without having to edit the source file? A source file I have is 23 MB, whereas each of the exports is 10 MB as high quality JPEG (which is half the size of a compressed tiff). So this also helps reduce disk space.
Does anyone know if Affinity are developing a desktop publishing package?
I am so ready to abandon Adobe Creative Suite altogether. The only thing that is stopping me is needing to have a professional equivalent of InDesign or Quark Xpress for long documents. I do magazines and books, so just an Illustrator or Photoshop equivalent will not help me out unless I just use them as an occasional alternative to InDesign and Photoshop. When you're doing a 700-page book, you have to have a program equipped for that kind of work Please tell me you will be marketing a Mac page layout program! Soon! Please! If not, I will likely not use the other Affinity products since I have everything I need in Creative Suite. Help us break the Adobe habit!
