  1. Dear Friends, I have been using Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer and I like them very much. I also like Affinity Publisher but it will not be particularly useful to me (and I will not be purchasing it) unless/until it can import microsoft word documents. Is this planned and, if so, when? Many thanks, Cory Sea
  2. I would like to have these improvements and additional features: Tables: 1. Create tables from selected texts with tab stops. 2. Convert tables to continuous text. 3. Can share single cells at any time. (Helpful for complex tables and subsequent cell division changes) 4. Can change cell size by moving the dividing lines. Import (placing) of further text files: Word .docx, .doc Excel .xlsx, .xls The copying and pasting of the texts is only possible if you have a program with which you can open these files. Diagram tool (was there in PagePlus) Calendar tool (give it in PagePlus) Create QR code and EAN code Open Indesign and QuarkXpress and PagePlus files Export Indesign and QuarkXpress files
  3. Hi, I am using Mac and come from Quark (since 2002), considering Publisher as a serious alternative. My aim is b/w scholarly publications (text, drawings, charts, some photographs) with a degree of control over the text flow that goes far beyond Word. We make use of a lot of not-so-common Unicode regions and strange fonts. Most files are delivered in Word and contain lots of legacy data going back to Word4, odd fonts and in-line formatting that is time-consuming to rip out and redo. I make use of a very limited amount of the options that a DTP offers but cannot rely on Word for making books. On the other hand, I need to stick to a version of a program for some time for economic reasons, and -- as I am a scholar in the first place, not a designer -- I am unable to switch to every new version instantaneouly. I rather jump. Keeping up-to-date with Quark was impossible, I got stuck at 2015 and present something of a tech dinosaur. My experience with Publisher Beta oh High Sierra so far: It feels a lot like Quark but is more comfortable for my purposes. In comparison to Quark X and 2015 it is more stable and robust (surprise). It still runs old home-made TT fonts that Quark 2018 refuses for some reason. Files from authors come 99.9% in Word with a lot of legacy data and in-line formatting. Converting to RTF before input is not comfortable but an acceptable work around. I need a feature to strip paragraphs of all formatting leaving in-line italices, bold, superscript and subscript in place (it is impossible to use nested styles for it, language transcriptions look much different form normal text), otherwise I have to redo them one by one. I need heaps of footnotes, short and very long ones (this is the typical thing in old-style European humanities where they contain side-arguments and annotations to literature and they are to be read with the main text). If possible, they should stay on the page with the line they belong to. Flowing to the next page should be avoided whenever possible. The system that Quark and Indesign offer is pretty useless. They consider it an advantageous feature when footnotes run over to the next page. At the same time they give us no tools to manipulate the distance between text and footnotes at page level. All you can do is move the separating border up and down. Therefore I still need to use my old work-around that I have been doing for 20 years: 1. Add next to the footnote markers in Word in both the main text and in the footnotes normal figures and assign some style to them. 2. save text and footnotes in different files. 3. remove Word’s footnote markers in both files. 4. import main text and footnotes into Quark or Publisher in two different sets of linked frames. 5. manipulate the text flow of both frames by hand; if necessary adjust leading in incremments to fit text in the best possible way. 6. Allow overflow of footnotes to the next page only if unavoidable, preferably from left to right page. In most book I have done, this happened once or twice. Being able to manipulate the distance between main text and footnote is of the essence (after all, footnotes are meant NOT to run over). Overall smoothness or eveness of appearance is not the issue. I still prefer to have control over the text flow to any automated feature. There is one draw-back, of cause: you cannot change footnote numbering after conversion into DTP. And most authors do this at some point after typesetting started. The obvious solution is to add footnote 62a or to declare footnote 85 as "deleted". On occasion I renumbered large quantities by hand. Therefore, before Publisher implements some footnote system, I urge the developers NOT to imitate Quark or Indesign. All that is needed is two separate text flows with the option to add or delete footnotes with automatically updating the footnote numbers. Ideally, a footnote converter from Word to Publisher at the import level should be available. I am aware that I am an outsider when it comes to typesetting but in contrast to other media our books have a lifetime of 50 plus odd years. We are struggling against a few commercial publishers that offer their services at outrageously large expense for authors and libraries. Affinity Publisher looks like the solution to my most pressing problems. Thank you
  4. I am loving Affinity Publisher, but I am hoping you can add an Affinity Word App to challenge Microsoft Word. Affinity Publisher feels great for the design aspect of ebooks, but what about just simply writing an ebook? I would love an Affinity Word Processor. Just like Adobe Microsoft has become Subscription based, it annoys me having to pay money every month to use Word. I would like a one time payment of Affinity Word, an app where I can just simply write, import and export as pdf or word document etc I could write with Affinity Word, then place the finished document into Affinity Publisher where I can add pictures and art, design etc Think about it Affinity, I know it is more work for you guys, but because you already have Affinity Publisher it shouldn't be too hard to turn this into Affinity Word. Rather like we have a Microsoft Publisher and a Microsoft Word. Also would love to see an Affinity Font app in future, an innovative font creation and font viewing tool and Affinity Video, an innovative video editing tool.
  5. 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.
  6. Hi all- New here! I'm trying to figure out how to write words in my logos (I know, the typing tool). What I mean is how do people write the words of a company name- do you usually download custom fonts from online websites, and if not, how does one make their own font? Maybe @ostrysharpcould help- I really loved your work in this feed.
  7. I've been using Affinity Photo extensively for almost a month now and I like it a lot, both the software itself and the company. This got me thinking about the upcoming Affinity Publisher. Desktop Publishing software has never really been on my radar, however looking at a couple of PagePlus video's it shows editing PDF documents and creating ebooks too. Therefore, unless I'm missing something, if it could export in a Word Processor file format is there a reason why Affinity Publisher couldn't be used as a Word Processor as well? So, the feature request is to allow Affinity Publisher to both open and export documents in Open Document Text format (*.odt) too.
  8. Hi I have some problems about my Thai language on tone marks float ( like grave accent) you see in attached photos here. There are 2 steps above the character in Thai. I need to have the tone mark in a lower position when the character has no vowel. You know what I mean? Please help me.. I don't know how to figure out.. Thank you in advanced. Pannily from Thailand
  9. Hi. I have just started using Affinity Designer after being a (non expert) PhotoShop user. After working on an image successfully, I pasted it into Word, but thousands of random characters similar to some e-mail attachments appeared. This happened several times. The only way around it was to paste into PhotoShop, copy it into clipboard again, then paste into Word. That worked first time. I was disappointed, and rather surprised. Is there a way to solve this? Thanks, Sarah (Mac OS X 10.10.12)
