Affinity Publisher compatibility

Recommended Posts

Yes, you can. The whole idea behind the Affinity suite is that the applications share a common file format, with the .af* filename extension simply identifying the originating app. And in much the same way as Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo can use features that can only be added in the other application, both AD and APh will be able to use linked text frames and other features added in Affinity Publisher.

The non-appearance of Affinity Publisher (Mac version) is indeed really frustrating, but so too is Affinity's silence. Adobe InDesign is a wonderful program but for occasional users it's far too expensive – at getting on for £20 per month it's outrageous for anyone who's not actually earning a living from it.


What everyone is looking for is a publishing app that we can buy outright, and not at Adobe prices. If it costs £100-£150, though, so be it. (Although low prices attract far more 'let's gove it a try, there's not a lot to lose' customers.)


If Affinity is close to admitting defeat on this, I think we'd all rather know. This isn't fair.
