Hi!

One point before to start this topic: you are doing a huge and great job!!! Yes! I'm in love with your softwares… Please go ahead in this way then!

 

So, I'm a professional publisher (book publisher) and daily user of Indesign since years ago. But, at least I don't want to be hocked with Adobe's subscription yet. I'm seeking for a viable alternative. Some years ago too I worked with an excellent software, Freehand, shamefully killed by Adobe (yes, again!). It's very late I'd found a nice alternative: Affinity Designer. 

What's my question of the day?

Will Affinity Publisher manage the footnotes as Indesign presently does? When I import a .docx file into ID (the word file has footnotes) ID can automatically import them. A precious feature I use everyday. 

If not I think that feature should be very useful in a near future. 

I don't doubt about your skill to implement that function in the further improvements 

 

Yours

Hi allen57301

Thanks for your feedback :)

Affinity Publishers feature list hasn't been confirmed so we wouldn't be able to say this would be included in the first update or perhaps an update further down the line just yet.

I would advise posting any suggestions in the Feature Requests section of the forum :)

I would say that InDesign's handling of notes is rather poor. It has no facility for endnotes so I have to use InFnote from Virginia Systems. I don't expect Affinity Publisher to improve on InDesign in its first version but it would be nice to see support for endnotes at some stage.

Four years and nine months after this post, one has to wonder what "later" might mean.  When my gnarled arthritic hands can no longer use a keyboard?  In my next life, when I come back as a profoundly disappointed squirrel?  When every other serious document production app on earth supports footnotes (aka "today")?

Being new to the Affinity suite and this forum, I must confess my two-weeks-in reaction is "What have I gotten myself into?"  This is just one of many years-old requests for basic features.  Serif seems profoundly indifferent to the needs of its customers.  I am… distressed.

It's such a shame that Footnotes/Endnotes have not appears in Publisher because otherwise it seems like an excellent piece of software.. Footnotes/endnotes appears to be something people have been asking for for a very long time. Sadly it means I'm stuck with InDesign as I primarily design books and without footnotes I'm lost. I just (just!) purchased Publisher with the intent of working on the next book which is 85+ pages of text with about 150 footnotes only to find that Publisher doesn't support Word footnotes at all. I'm afraid I wish there were a way to ask for my money back.
