Are you sure that's not a clip of the new kitten fanmade "The Lion King" of when Simba and Scar are fighting?

I like the final choice since it implies publications, and that would've been my pick as well, though I can see how it might cause confusion for website publishing.

This one has been repeatedly pushed back. The best you can do is pretend that Affinity never mentioned Publisher. It was supposed to hit beta last year. Then it was supposed to hit this year. Now it's a matter of "wanting to get it right" which could mean that it is still years off. I renewed my Adobe subscription and to be honest I am loving the CC suite again.

Creative Suite is quite nice, no doubt, but not the 50 / month for life tether that it comes with, and the fact you had to get the entire cc suite just to get indesign, or pay for it by itself for 30 a month. What a joke Adobe turned their business model into. Not a joke for the investors though. I'm happy to wait for Affinity's entry into market. Not to mention they are probably developing a iPad app version in tandem which would probably add to the delay. 

 

They have raised the bar on their own software over the last two years, so it's probably increased production time on Publisher making sure it meets their quality.

Looking forward to the release of AP too (when it's ready!) :D

 

What about Aldus PageMaker! For me it was the first programme I had really had to learn to use, but once through the learning curve I formed a close bond with it. Used it for producing technical manuals and found the story editor feature very useful. Seem to remember their customer support was good as well.

Are we there yet, are we there yet, are we there yet?

 

Just to re-iterate on the anticipation for the Publisher (beta) :)

Keep up the good work!

Corel Ventura Publisher was an amazing program, far ahead of its time. Intuitive, powerful, full-featured. Sadly, PC only. Corel let it die. Not updated since 2002. So sad. Hope AP draws some inspiration from this once-great program.

I did not like it, there was no free positioning, everything just dropped to page/columns and had to reposition using all kinds of hacks. Great automation features though.

One could create individual text or image frames at will in VP.

 

But VP was always geared towards long documents, or otherwise structured documents, whether one used the base page or frames. It wasn't efficient for ad hoc design. For that, we always used PM and QXP (and which of those two depended upon the client and the work) and or CorelDraw, ProfessionalDraw or FH.

 

I have VP10 installed here on a Windows 10 computer. I still use it in order to convert old documents to a modern application.

That's an old post. Being a Windows user most of my life, and then switching to Mac, I had no idea how many problems only occur in Windows, but I guess that's not relevant here.

I'm not saying Mac doesn't have issues, but I'm saying that there is a lot I didn't know when I was a Windows user. For example, an anti-virus is not needed because Mac has security settings built in. I got malware from a not-so-smart download, my date was changed, and I had other issues, but the system update removed everything and brought my OS back to normal. So I will say, even though I am still fairly new, it is a completely different experience to actually be there and understand it for myself.

 

Back on topic now, I look forward to the release of Publisher. I am hoping it features different templates like for business cards, for example. I could definitely use that.

hopefully not so many in APu for Windows now ;)

 

Oh I meant the OS itself, not the Affinity programs.

Of course, thanks. It was just a tiny joke [hint: the used emoticon] because this is more about Affinity Pu, whose problems (some excluded) we can not discuss here.

I used it from version 1.1, used it to build a media business, and made lots of $$$ with it :-). Never had the problem you mention. Once you understood that everything was in frames, you could just make frames and place anything anywhere. You could have multi-columns on the on underlying page or not. Text in one frame could flow around another frame, or even objects in the frame. It was pretty amazing. Loved the way it created captions and made Paragraph tagging a breeze. You could make style tags for frames, text, paragraphs, most anything and applying them was quick and intuitive. If I hadn't moved to Mac, I would still be using it. Still am tempted, but would have to install a virtual machine and buy Windows. Ventura should get a lot more credit than it does. I hear that it is still used quite a bit in Europe. (sigh)

As an Affinity Designer owner I also use CorelDraw X8 as it has some very powerful capabilities esp. regarding its page layout text handling overall. I am awaiting Affinity Publisher as I wish to see if I can make the jump from Corel to Serif/Affinity (although I may keep CD around).

One of the things that makes me warm to the Affinity range is that in following Adobe and MS, Corel is edging closer to the subscription route. Although I don't think Corel are quite big enough to go subs only.

I notice that on the Affinity web site, it mentions Affinity Publisher will appear in 2018. Whilst I don't expect a definite date, it would be helpful to know if it will be Q1, Q2, Q3 or Q4. After all, Dec 31 2018 would still qualify!

Hello everyone 

Well Affinity is a great set of apps and it has made my design learning very easy but I see from the 12 pages of this forum that we are waiting for the desktop publisher app for more than 3 years since it's first announcement. 

Are we close to the release? 

Many of the designers and editors out there are bleeding with the cost of products we all know and use. 

2018 is the year of Freelance and young but skilled editors to surface and bring the change. 

Publisher will bring more colors and creativity in this Design world but... When exactly?

Hi there, and welcome to the Affinity forums.

 

There was previously a sneak peek of Affinity Publisher back in December, and we were told that the beta will be released by next summer.

 

Here is the topic.
