Impressive at first look for a first beta. I come from QuarkXPress and I find AP intuitive. • Projects – What if you have several related files (stationery, brochure, etc.) and you want to them to share resources and formatting. If you add another item to the project, such as a booklet, could you pick up the resources and formatting? • Long documents – Sections, etc. How to handle long documents. • Issues – Publications with several locations, etc. Maybe ads change from region to region. • External copy editing while layout is being worked on. Could a text editor be used to edit placed text and have it update on the page geometry? • Versioning – is that Save History? Can you revert to a previous version. • Step and Repeat – Such as 4 across and 8 down, duplicate. • Repurposing – eBooks, web, etc. I am writing a book using Scrivener. I want to do my own layout, since I have a graphics and printing background and have been hoping AP will be ready by the time I am ready to layout my book. Scrivener recently included an option to output to software called Vellum.
I am creating a classic retro sunset design with bands rectangles (you've seen them before) and I noticed that AD has a distinct way of doing this step and repeat if I use the basic technique that has been shown in tutorials from probably everyone, but is there a way to create a different type of repeat technique in the initial first copy that will give me a different look? I tried this in Graphic, (still good for some things) and their algorithms are a bit different than AD's which in this case I like better but I couldn't replicate this distribution in AD. Anyone?
Nudge specification is a very valuable tool to me. Have many files set up that require nudge accurate to .0000 (Adding it at the bottom of the Transform pane would be especially helpful.) Another valuable feature in the same vein would be a Step and Repeat copy/paste option. (copy and specify offset paste an object multiple times in both X and Y axis; CD has this tool but AI does not)
