Affinity publisher suggestions

Recommended Posts

Please include picas as a measurement option.  Essential when selecting type.  

 

Hopefully you will include the little reverse L-shape which rested in the top left-hand corner at the intersection of vertical and horizontal rulers, permitting one to draw a new left-hand corner, or to establish a center line, with ruler measurements forward and backward refigured to represent the new 0-point.  This was a very useful option in Aldus Pagemaker and Adobe InDesign.  Saves so much trouble.

 

For those of us who have published several books using Pagemaker/InDesign, we are now stuck either paying a king’s ransom for InDesign, or never being able to revise/update our books, because they can only be stored in MAC as PDF files.  Can you include an Import PDF option which can then be converted to AFFINITY format, so we can once again edit previous work?  This would be wonderful!

 

In the text layout features, Pagemaker had an autoflow option permitting one to keep on typing without fiddling around with icons to the left and right, in order to link text from page to page and sparing us from having to draw new text blocks on each succeeding page.  This was marvellous.  Hope you can consider it.

 

InDesign permits one to draw a block for which either text or images can then be inserted.   Then there are four options for scaling the image.   One can toggle between the scaling options to choose how best to present the image.  iCalamus (very irritatingly) makes one chose an image and then use it to draw the block.   Then one is stuck.   Hope this description makes sense.
