Affinity Publisher - Sneak Preview

Recommended Posts

Ah, a moments more: please develop to Publisher more EPUB and MOBI export settings, options or any customize parameters, because now in PagePlus is very poor... Thanks!

Man I'm a big fan of wishes and always love these wish concerts, hey and while we're already at it and I miss that one most urgently, can I ask for a button which when clicked will then cook coffee and wash the car? - Keep on coding guys ... (;))

That's a great find, Rick! (You can see more of Maori Sakai's wonderful work, including some other coffee-related stuff, here.)

Will Affinity Publisher (and the later versions of Affinity Design) have a capability for different text directions. Being luckily able to actually write only English and Finnish, I have rarely needed right to left text direction, for example. Yet there is no shortage of languages written in different directions in asia, for example. I know, you guys do the best you can with what you've got. Just thought to point out the text direction -thing. If right-to-left text is already possible in affinity, I'm sorry for asking for something that is there, and hope some one will tell me how to do the trick.

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @LassiP. :)

Not in the first release, and probably not even in the second. We've been told by Dave Harris (one of the developers) that right-to-left text support is likely to be several years away.

Fired up indesign today to start a project after a lot of time (did smaller ones on designer), I felt so lost outside the affinity UI, I remembered how stupid it is that I can't just move view with middle click.

Publisher seems so far away when I need it the most :(

Maybe I can try my hand with designer but 28 pages are a lot to manage in designer.

I made a 48 pages document with Designer. It has some thinks you have to do manually but it's still doable.

Best regards!

Designer can handle 28 pages, no problem! In fact, it has a lot of the same tools as InDesign, so you should have no problem. The only thing you won't have is an easy way to manage text flows, where a block of text flows one page to the next, but other than that, the character, paragraph and text tools in Designer are robust enough to handle most of what you will likely encounter.

X-Mouse button control can help you in setting middle click (or any other mouse thing, or key, or whatever) for panning instead of whatever the key or button does that in every single application, and you can customize a different behavior for each program. I have it permanently now (around 5 apps customized), and WAY more confortable now in my day by day work. It uses no significant resources, at all. Indeed, in my arcane machine -in my sig- I have not been able to tell the difference, and counting how much of a crazy stress I put to this good old thing every day...I'd have noticed even a little decrease. Neither noticed any collision or problem. I made a basic tutorial on how to handle it, in these forums, but that was so long ago, would be hard for me to find it fast now...

If you mean this post, finding it was very quick and not hard at all. :P

IMPORTANT: Please don't use it for the shortcuts I mention in that tut for AP or AD...I mean, there were some improvements in the apps, so that for those functions is not needed any more, those workarounds. Obviously you still can use it for any other shortcut or mouse gesture which you can't set with the current apps.

I tried it once but after the second page it was too heavy to work with, then again this was for a wholesale brochure with tons of graphics.

I don't mind for the text flow I can handle manually, but it is pretty hard to work without master pages, especially when the client haven't yet decided on some details and need to change things when you are done.

Anyway... I will give a shot, my deadline allow me to take it easy this week.

Has the date for BETA been announced? (Apart from Summer)

 

Not an official date, no. I assume this is because if the product still needs more work, it would be more fair to give an estimation than an exact date. That way, no one is disappointed.


The website is still a work in progress. The "Comics" and "Shop" sections are not yet ready. Feel free to connect with me and let me know what you like or what can be improved. You can contact me here, on my contact page, YouTube channel, or Twitter account. Thanks and have a great day!

There has been a lot of discussion of it being in the works, but as far as I'm aware (unless I missed a post) there was no announcement of its arrival or anything it will carry yet according to Lee D's answer here.

There are types of work for which is pretty difficult to estimate the total time needed, I'm afraid. Specially in things that can trigger tons of amazing new issues.... which also trigger another ones, etc... Maybe there are very few ex-gamers around... It is so common to see super expensive projects , AAA titles, to be delayed a month, 2, or even years. So many times that people is not overly surprised anymore...
