  1. Hello, I have to purchase a book layout template from a third part made in InDesign format. The idea is to import it in AP, make my amendments (add the text) and print the book but before purchasing AP (or install the trial) I would like to have an idea of how accurate the import in AP will be compared to the original in InDesign format. Based on your experience, how accurate and close to the original the AP import from InDesign is? Besides making sure the InDesgn file I receive is in IDML format, Is there anything I have to consider ? Any pitfalls ? Please don't take anything for granted because I am a newbie. Many thanks Alberto
  2. Over the last couple of days I have been trying out the latest version of Quark that I have been really enjoying using (2017 is the only version I have used.) To me it seems like this is going to be a very hard area for Serif to compete in given that there are two products that many are happy with that have been advancing since the 1980s (or at least there are people that are happy with one of those two options.) Even if Publisher was out today it would still have a massive challenge in competing with these two options especially at Quark's new low $400 entry price (and yes that is low for a product of that level.) To me it seems like Lightroom like products would be so much easier to compete with due to the fact that it is a field that is only about ten years old and still has a lot of room to grow. I still have several major grips with LR and also the way that Affinity Photo interacts with catalog software like Apple Photos. It just seems like the more logical step to me. I think the fact that LR is the one app that hasn't not yet been subscription only shows that Adobe is aware that customers could easily move off this product to a competitor more easily then many other more well established products.
  3. Hello, is it possible to edit an Affinity Publisher file in InDesign? Can I export the Publisher file into InDesign - and then edit that file in InDesign - using the export menu or do I have to use a third-party application? Thank you
  4. Hey guys. Is there a screen mode like in InDesign? Can't seem to find something similar in the Affinity Publisher Beta. Thanks!
  5. I am a publisher and editorial designer. I've been working with In Design (before Quark X Press) for more than 20 years. Lately tried Affinity and bought the whole package, in order to replace adobe. Must say that every day gets better but I lack the possibility of creating books, in other words compilations of the single documents created separated in one only document, what in In Design is called indb formats (books). When designing magazines, normally we design each feature, reportage or editorial separately, but at the end is very helpful to create one single document, specially when the issue is finished, before print or digital publishing. Can I do that in Publisher, how? Also can I open indb formats (books)? I have tried with opening pdf´s but to does not keep a lot of things, like master pages, text boxes interconnections... Thanks for your help.
  6. I have just watched Moving from InDesign to Affinity Publisher with Mike Barton and I was very impressed. What I would very much like to see is a companion video showing "Moving design from PagePlusX9 to Affinity Publisher". I am getting the same problems with importing PDFs as he so graphically describes. Unfortunately Markzware does not provide a companion piece of software to make the journey smoother. However a video guide to providing a Master Page and Text styles for this process would be a great help to the rather aduous process of conversion. What about it Affinity, it would make us PagePlus adherents more feel more loved by Serif. John
  7. In these unique times, we want to help users transitioning to and from other DTP applications. We know that many designers are having to make budget cuts, and many are moving from Adobe to Affinity. We want to help you guys move your existing work to Publisher. So, we are giving away the full version of IDMarkz for usage through the end of May 2020. This is not the freebie version that locks out the IDML export; it's the full version with all features enabled. There are no charges or signups required to take advantage of this; it's how we feel we can help during these unprecedented times. If you are already using the freebie version of IDMarkz you can use the following license details to activate the full version to be used through May 2020: Email Address: doingourpart@markzware.com License ID: bf2f3a43-8466-4861-b5e6-2e0e00e4ac83 If you don't have the freebie, you can get all the information you need to get started here. Please feel free to share this with your friends and colleagues. We'll be monitoring how this pandemic affects those in our industry, and we may extend the free usage beyond May 2020. Sorry Windows users, I can't give a timeline, but we are actively working on a Windows version.
  8. Hey there, I am currently having an issue importing IDML files into Affinity Publisher that is bugging me a lot. I have been working on a document for quite some time now in InDesign and want to continue work in Publisher. So, I exported the file as IDML and imported it into the Affinity software. My problem is that all font sizes are wrong now. E.g. a text with 11 pt font size which fitted perfectly into its frame in Design will now not fit into the frame at all since the font size is way too big. Am I overseeing a conversion step or something? I would be thankful if you guys could help me out here Thanks a lot!
  9. I have a lot of adobe work that i need to open with these applications. CS-1 photoshop files CS-1 Illustrator files CS-3 Indesign files Can somebody please let me know if it possible at all? I have a new computer mac mini and none of my older software can run on it. Affinity software can as the store shows its compatible with my mac mini. thanks I know its a long shot but I just have to ask. thanks everyone for the input. I want to buy all three affinity apps soon they just look intuitive and pretty incredible. I need to make pdf's from affinity publisher as well, so hopefully it can export or save as pdf. thanks!
  10. In the FB discussion forum, I tried to help with question "how to transfer vector data from ADesigner to InDesign via Clipboard". Unfortunately, even after turning "Copy items as SVG" on, InDesign still takes rasterized data (bitmaps). Does anyone have any experience or advice? Transferring vector data using Export and Import also does not work, because the data transferred in this way is attached as a linked document and cannot be edited directly in InDesign, which is necessary. It is said that it works without problems when transferring data via Clipboard from Illustrator.
  11. Hi, pending the arrival of affinity publisher, does anyone have any ideas on how to copy/paste (or otherwise import) vectors from affinity designer into indesign? - i.e. so paths arrive as editable vectors in indesign, not just placed separate files. I've ditched illustrator from which I used to be able to copy/paste vectors into indesign, but I've yet to find a way to achieve the same result using affinity designer...
  12. Hello and thank you for your effort to give us publisher! I happen from time to time to print carbonless paper to make invoice books or numbered coupons, while a simple automatic page numbering is enough for having numbering in paper sizes from A5 and above, there are times that I have to fit multiple smaller sized pages in one big page and need each to start and stop at different numbers. After a long time and thanks to the help of many people I managed to do this with indesign and I wonder if it is possible to be done with publisher too. I will describe how I did this with indesign because it is not exactly an indesign feature but more of a creative way of using the lists in indesign. So maybe after someone recreate the result can tell me if it can be done in publisher. It is not simple so a big thanks to anyone who may even try to see if this is possible in publisher.
  13. Hey guys, I can't seem to find a way to convert process colours to spot in Affinity Publisher Beta. Not quite sure if there is a way yet. When I'm doing a print job that has a die-line, perf, fold line, etc, I usually set them up as a spot colour. In InDesign I usually convert one of the colours (either cyan, magenta, yellow, black, or whatever) from Color Type: Process to Color Type: Spot and then assign a name to each (like die-line). Is there a way to do something like that in Affinity Publisher at the moment? Thanks!
  14. A user on Twitter reporting Importing of InDesign files in Beta working well and achieved by simply selecting Open and then selecting an .indd file. I am unable to import as all .indd files are greyed out in the Open finder on Mac. I am using latest version of Beta. Has anyone else had this issue and, more importantly, how was it resolved!?
  15. Hello, I'm wondering of Affinity Publisher can load and use Blrub's In Design plugin/templates? I saw this as a feature request over a year ago and wonder if this has been adopted yet? I wanted to take advantage of the 30% off sale but this is the primary reason I'd be purchasing the software. Please advise. https://www.blurb.ca/indesign-plugin Regards, Rico
  16. Do Affinity Photo offer the same option as Adobe Photoshop to store composite Alpha channels that QuarkXPress can read. I use frequently the lasso tool to create alpha channels to isolate parts of an image (to isolate the background from an object). In Photoshop this is done under the Select menu. The mask is stored as a channel that you activate in QuarkXPress. I don't get it work in Affinity Photo.
  17. Hey guys, I designed my pages in AD for my book, now I want to make the final paperback and fixed layout ePub in InDesign, why format should I export each page as to InDesign without loss much quality? the page content images and vectors, I decide to add text in InDesign so I can embed the font for the final export files(print ready pdf and ePub to be publish) and adjust everything nicely in InDesign.
  18. 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?
  19. This AppleInsider article was very positive in its comparison of Publisher with other established publishing tools. In particular, the star of the article is Publisher's StudioLink feature.
  20. I'm a new user of Affinity Designer and Publisher. I really hope that a possibility to import/export idml-files will be added to Publisher as soon as possible. Especially exporting InDesign compatible files would be essential. Another issue with Designer: possibility to vectorise raster images would be an essential feature. Do you have any plans to develop these features in the near future?
  21. I am SOO ready to bin Adobe - I hate their business model, and their ridiculous pricing. But, I have 10+ years worth of archived indesign files. I assume at some point in the future someone will either create a plugin, or you will natively be able to import indd docs? I would switch in a heartbeat if this was possible, but at the moment, i have to keep indesign purely because i cannot re-create everything on my work archive. Loving your work. Andy
  22. Will Affinity Publisher open/import InDesign documents? If Affinity Publisher imports IDML files it would be a help, but it would also mean that I need to open over 300 InDesign documents and then export them as IDML. When I upgrade my Mac OS, InDesign CS6 will no longer function, and I cannot afford the subscription cost to upgrade InDesign. I am looking at Affinity or Quark as alternatives. Markzware makes a converter from InDesign to Quark, but it costs $200, plus the competitive upgrade price to buy Quark for $450. If I can open InDesign documents directly in Affinity, it would be a major cost and time saver. Thank you for your assistance.
  23. I've just purchased Publisher. Before I install and use it, can someone please let me know if I can import an InDesign page/file into Publisher and work on it, and also if after creating a page/file in Publisher I can export it to InDesign for further work? Thanks.
