Hello, I bought Affinity Publisher recently and I am almost shocked that this program is not able to import/place text files. I think Publisher is meant to be a DTP program, and to place text files is a basic requirement. In my opinion, it must be possible to import/place at least doc/docx, odt, txt and rtf. I've never heard of a publisher who writes the text directly into his/her publishing program. If Affinity Publisher really wants to compete with Indesign, XPress, etc., text import is an absolute must. Please provide such import features as quickly as possible. Actually, in my opinion the program is unusable for folders, print media, books, etc.
I'm using Affinity Beta 184.108.40.206 on a Mac with OS 10.9.5 and I'm impressed with it but when I tried to import text from a file the command "Importing Text from File" doesn't appear in the Text drop-down menu. I finally gave up looking after searching and using the Help menu and did a simple Copy/Paste but something must be missing. Suggestions? Frank B
