Only just found this forum from Windows Beta. Making the most of it and clearing a backlog! :)


Please add TEXT FLOW.

I know (from Beta posts) that it's seen as a Publisher feature - all I can say is that in 20 years I've needed it as much in Graphics documents (CorelDraw) as in DTP (InDesign).

DrawPlus has had text flow for years. Even CraftArtist includes text flow! This should at least be on the roadmap for Affinity Designer.

I use text flow in CorelDraw since many years. In my opinion this is a basic feature, that should be included in AD too.

The answer in 2014 was something like “different apps need different capabilities”, which really shocked. Basic visual design features like optical margin alignment should be integrated in AD, because a frame text tool and other text features (like kerning) are already integrated. Serif does not forbid to use AD for posters and advertisements with bad typography, but Serif could prevent bad typography. For example with a factory preset for real ragged margin and correct text flow.
