Hello I'd like to stress the need for a (very) good justification engine in Affinity Publisher, in order to produce high quality text-heavy publications. Because I'm not sure what the status on microtypography in Publisher currently is, I'll drop this info for your consideration. In the 1990's type designer Hermann Zapf and engineer Peter Karow developed the Hz-program, a justification engine which has gained a somewhat mythological status. Its algorithm combines multiline composing, hanging punctuation with word-spacing, letter-spacing and most controversial: glyph-scaling. Adobe has bought the patent, but it's not known whether they actually use the program in InDesign. You can however change most of these parameters (word-spacing, letter-spacing and glyph-scaling) in the justification engine in InDesign with a minimum, maximum and optimal amount. In my opinion, a paragraph composer with these settings, combined with extensive hyphenation settings are an absolute must for professional typographers.

Why and which raw engine should I choose in Affinity Photo to process Canon .cr2 raw files for best results? Where do I choose it? (After searching the forum without answers; sorry if I'm wrong). Thank you very much.
Hi, tried a search and didn't find any info on the status of the brush manager. My assumption is it's not ready for primetime hence the "BETA"tag. Just checking, it's looks like it's going to be epic though. Cheers!
