Publisher 2 - finally Global Layers!

Recommended Posts

Oh sorry, I'm only joking. Unfortunately, this essential feature does not exist in Publisher 2. I think that Publisher 2 is especially neglected. Honestly, I find the new features very modest and unimpressive -  I am more than disappointed as an Affinity friend of the first hour.

What I have read so far, even functions are no longer implemented in Publisher 2 that are available in version 1. And all that at twice the price. I think this will no longer be a success story.

Damn, I really thought for years this could be the InDesign alternative and struggled all this time with various workarounds for missing features. So the other thread asking for an export function from Publisher to InDesing is more than justified. I think sooner or later I'll have to look into how to import Publisher files back into Indesign.

But I won't buy the new version because of that either. Very sad.

But I don´t have V2 installed... ... A bug only?

That was a user error, I think. Nothing has been removed that I'm aware of.
