Affinity Publisher is an excellent program, so I switched from Adobe InDesign to Affinity Publisher, Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer.

However, I would like to make a suggestion to improve the usability of Affinity Publisher: Each time I want to print a document, the default printer in its basic configuration is automatically selected. For example, if I want to print a photomontage on a particular printer, I have to select that printer each time and choose the appropriate settings (paper, print resolution, color settings etc.) within that printerdialog. If I want to print the document again a few minutes later after any changes have been made, I have to make all settings again. From my point of view it is therefore urgently necessary that the special printer settings are saved with the respective document. This saves a lot of time.

I would like to point out at this point that Adobe InDesign has implemented this feature right from the start.

Hi Blackybgm :)

Unfortunately you've Reported the above post, rather than replied to it. I've included your reply below, which was included with the report -

Thanks for this tip. Unfortunately for me, this is only a stopgap solution. In a short period of time, this would result in a great many profiles. The InDesign solution is simply more effective

Of course the Indesign solution would be better. Perhaps worth a feature request, if this is not already requested? In the meantime setting up basic profiles would save some clicks.
