  1. Hi I use PagePlus X9, DesignPlus X8 and PhotoPlus X8 can documents saved in these be opened in the Affinity equivalent?
  2. So, in the old versions of PagePlus X8 and X9, I could Insert > PDF Bookmarks automatically, by choosing which text styles were in which part of the bookmark hierarchy. So Heading 1 would be a main bookmark, and Heading 2 would be a level beneath it. When I exported to PDF (and ticked the Include bookmarks tickbox), I'd get all the bookmarks in my PDF no problem. I can't find this functionality within Affinity Publisher. Can anyone please point me in the right direction?
  3. I have been using Serif products for over ten years and have used all the Page Plus versions. I am finding the difference between those and Affinity Publisher a step too far. I just produce a 40 page A5 village news booklet with articles, adverts, photos and clip art. I import files from Microsoft documents, picture and downloads. I do not need master pages or other features at the moment. I just want to import adverts run in last issue plus any new ones, some regularly used text which I can edit for each issue, new articles and PDF files, photos from my hard drive and various artwork from downloads. I just cannot see how I can do this and none of the tutorials seem to help. Sorry to be such a woos.
  4. Are we safe to assume that Affinity Publisher will be able to import an existing 100 page PagePlus file with ; Left and right hand Master pages; Auto table of contents generation. Thats not too much to ask is it ? I really don't want to re-create it all manually ! regards Paul Churchill
  5. Hello, I thought that I'd experiment in laying out a poem in PagePlus X9 and Affinity Publisher for comparison As you can see the results are very similar but PagePlus has the edge using features such as optical justification and use of filter effects for the drop shadow. Affinity Publisher layer effects aren't as versatile as PagePlus which is a shame. Admittedly I haven't found out how to successfully use optical justification in Affinity Publisher yet so that may be my own issue rather than the program's issue. I do think Affinity Publisher is a very polished and capable product though, and I am looking forward to its release. Keep up the good work. A Retard's Retort.pdf A Retard's Retort PagePlus.pdf
  6. 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.
  7. For many years, I used PagePlus in its various developments, and produced magazines and a newspaper with it. My cricket club has a website provided by the ECB in the form of newick.play-cricket.com I was looking for Serif's WebPlus system and found it was no longer being produced. Is there anything produced by Serif that I can build a website with that will mimic the PlayCricket site and be as user-friendly as PagePlus??
  8. Hi Serif I've been using Pageplus more or less since it was born. I have been loyal to Serif & recommended it to many friends. When all Affinity products are eventually integrated, you deserve to wipe Adobe [arrogant & unhelpful] & MS Publisher [counter intuitive] off the map. However, many of us have lots of .ppp files, Pageplus logos, etc. It would be a major mistake if Pageplus files, logos etc were not supported to import into the final version of Affinity Publisher. I note you have now closed that thread. I hope your programmers are even now working on including this in the program or as a plugin.
  9. Hi, I have read and understand the various threads on why directly importing .ppp files won't happen, and I have tried the workaround of exporting from PP as PDF and importing to AP. This seems to work reasonably to get the documents into AP, but it loses all the information I would want to continue working on that document in AP, in particular styles and master pages. I have spent a lot of time setting these up for PP. Is there any way I can save redoing all this in AP? Apologies if it has already been answered in a previous post, but I couldn't find it on searching. Cheers, Ian
  10. I was going to post this elsewhere but the topic was closed to further comment. There have been many postings on the relationship between PagePlus and Publisher. When the Affinity range was being introduced I remember reading that the aim was to reach design professionals who worked with Macs. It would appear that Serif were not turning their backs on PagePlus users but all users of Windows. Along the line this has changed. I assume Serif have become aware that there are a substantial number of professionals working on Windows but that does not warrant the work/cost that would be involved in providing compatibility for the PagePlus customers they were happy to discard. This is not written as a bitter PagePlus user. I have tried PagePlus at various times and have X9 installed, but I have been a happy user of InDesign since it was first introduced. I am now retired and do much less with DTP so I stick with InDesign CS6 rather than pay a subscription. Publisher seemed to offer the possibility of a reasonably priced up to date alternative but I am put off by the feeling that Serif have shown that loyalty to customers is not their prime aim. Which is a great shame as there is much to like and look forward to with Affinity.
  11. Hi, Got a library of hundred of these (version X6) that regularly get updated. Will they be supported? Haven't spotted any reference to this in anything I've read. Hope I've just missed it. Thanks Richard
  12. Thanks for the beta of Publisher which many of us have been anxiously waiting for. Are many more features coming later? As of now I don't see any advantage of using Publisher rather than the old PagePlus, which I thought was an excellent program.
  13. It's disappointing for me as a serious and happy PagePlus user that there seems to be no way to open/insert/import ppp.files.
  14. What it says on the tin... Do you have a release date for Publisher yet? This year, next year, sometime, ever? Regards, Hal.
  15. Hi, Is there any further news on an Affinity DTP product to replace Serif's PagePlus? Cheers, Hal.
  16. Hello, I am a very long term Serif Pageplus and Webplus user. I can now see you are no longer intending to develop either of these products in favour of everything Afinity. So, will you be doing a page layout software to replace page plus? Will you be doing a web design software to replace web plus and will it handle mobile pages better? I look forward to hearing from somebody. Thanks
  17. I am about to retire and have used all of the Adobe suite at work and use the Serif Suite at home on a PC, but I also have a Mac computer at home and would like to use the Serif/Affinity Suite on both. Is their any likelihood of the programmes being available on the Mac and if so any time scale?
  18. I am new to the forum and am very interested in the Affinity program. I must say at the start. As a 16 year user, and veteran of Serif's Page Plus layout program and Draw Plus programs, I just want to put it out that really all I want is these two marvelous programs made for Mac. If you folks at Serif would just do that; I would be an ecstatic camper!
