Late 2016? I'm certainly disappointed. First early 2015, then late 2015 not late 2016? Sounds like a serious re-write is in progress. I wonder what was so problematic when I imaging half of  its code already exists in Designer.

(I even saw a video of Publisher demonstrating its text wrapping feature that felt like a launch teaser more than a proof-of-concept because it seemed so refined)

Hi Stephen_H

I believe what you saw was text being wrapped inside a shape in Affinity Designer. To do it copy some text to clipboard, change to Text Frame Tool, click on a shape or closed path and paste the text. You can now transform or reshape the path and the text will adapt/reflow to fit its form. It wasn't related with Publisher in any way.

Of course I'm anxious to see Affinity Publisher, but if you have worked with InDesign you know the incredible depth of InDesign. In InDesign you can even do quite a bit of work that can also be done in Affinity Designer. It's easy to see that Affinity needs a lot of time to get this right. The Affinity team is doing a fantastic job and I wish them every success.

It was not a great job to change the launch of Affinity Publisher a few times without explanations.
