Hi Peter,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Thanks for your words and support. Affinity Publisher is still under development. We were a little optimistic regarding its release date and due to some adjustments to our plans (Photo and Designer for iPad), Light UI interface and other non-planned additions to Photo and Designer it end up delayed a little more. There's still no eta but it's progressing well. We will announce it here in the forums and on social media as soon as the Beta becomes available.

 

The biggest problem here is: there is no Adobe license only for the inDesign; you have to pay for Illustrator, Photoshop and inDesign package. We are wating for Publisher to jump for Affinity. Without the Publisher, for many creatives, your platform is useless.

And for many others, is great, already.  :P

Plus you can always combine any existing publishing app with the current Affinity apps. Please, ppl, start seeing the half full bottle, not the half empty one... (better to build than destroy, etc... ;)

Hi camisa florida,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Remember this is just the first version - I think some people are expecting way to much from Publisher 1.0 -. It can't simply replace/cover all features that programs with decades of development currently offer. Serif does have experience with DTP software but it will take some time until the software matures to a point where it can be used for most types of projects.

It is hurting me to see those without some drop shadow in the hat's bottom borders, and some levels correction after import...

oohh.... so, ass (yeh, I know what other meanings has :P ) is donkey in British informal... had to google it, suspected sth in the thoughtful and illustrated posts a bit above.... This spaniard has his limits.... :P

 

Any copy & pasted image without some integration with the background (ie, shadows that it projects, gamma/levels/color integration, etc... is a PITA......  :D  ...for me to see, at least. Even in a joke....Now is when someone posts "what joke? :o ")

All of us have been so completely satisfied with the excellent functionality and the perfect job you all have done producing  Affinity Photo and Designer that we are all anticipating the Beta Release of Affinity Publisher. For heaven sakes, don't be rushing a precious program just because we are all bitting at the bit for it. The Outstanding Job everyone has been doing at Serif is what it's all about, it shows up in all that you do and all that we say and do. While I was in the manufacturing industry now retired, we use to have this slogan: Measure Twice, Cut Once, that cliche' still resonates in my memory. The Street Rap is the all-important feedback you'll be receiving once the finished product is introduced to the public. Everyone who has been loyal to Serif knows there will be upgrades to the products when they are ready. That is a priceless benefit to us patriotic users. Measure Twice, Cut Once is the reminder I leave you with today. May the blessings be...and have a productive day!

 

Thank you all for maintaining the highest bar in the perfection of A-Design, A-Photo and soon to be ready for beta release A-Publisher. 

Best regards,

 

Donald

If the language barrier allowed me to understand it well...I'd say I fully agree with the above lines.

Hi Jens,

That was the original plan at the time (that post is from March). Since then we have been avoiding giving any timeframes so please don't take it for granted. Currently there's no eta defined. It will be out as soon as it's ready. Sorry the trouble.

 

Hi! Something has changed, after that video that shows Publisher working? It's been years since the first announcement of Publisher's launch, and we continue to wait. We are trying to give up Adobe, but without Publisher, Designer it's almost useless for those who work making books, magazines, for example. Any new date to share with us? Thnx

Hi camisa florida,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

No, no news. The Public Beta will be available this Summer (Northern Hemisphere) as announced in that thread. Note however that the initial version will not include/cover all functionality offered by other programs currently on the market for several years. Please refer to the linked thread for additional details and questions posted by other users.

Patience is a superpower. Is not as if the beta had been announced to be released in 5 years... ;)
