But it always rain in the UK.

 

LOL. Yes, there are probably not many days in the year when it isn’t raining somewhere in the UK, but less than 15°C is hardly what I would call summer weather, even in this cold and rainy country!

Absolutely understandable, because things (already) changed in the past (“launching in 2015”, …) and he needed an update/confirmation (of the year) after months.

Affinity should publish announcements ( or pre-announcements) without comments to allow users to have clear information, without having to read pages of comments (which are often not relevant)

NOTHING other than the announcement and preview has been relevant. It is mostly conjecture and want lists.

That includes my posts

and this one of yours

 

You can be sure if there is more information they will pin it to the top or start a new beta forum

So you can just ignore the rest or jump in and have some fun xD

I am really looking forward to this. I have a lot of art I want to bring to the world, but the best way to do it is not easy to figure out. I decided that I want start by publishing books and sell on sites like Amazon and Barnes and Noble. And now seeing that this product is coming close to launch, it makes me feel happy knowing that I will now have a better way to organize and work. The Affinity products have really put a boost on my workflow and helped me to actually want to work towards getting my art out there.


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!

It is nowhere near summer in the uk, just been out in my kit car today I think the hottest it got was 5C (I am about 40 miles from Serif). The forecast for tomorrow is worse....

 

Back on topic, let’s have a simple v1 app which is stable and worry about the fancy bits later.

I love Affinity Designer, thinking about buying Photo too, but Publisher is a must!

I was an early adopter of Affinity Photo (APhot) and Affinity Designer (ADsgn). I've completely moved my stock photo image processing to APhot. Although most of my vector work is now done in ADsgn, I still use DrawPlus X8 for functions still not present in ADsgn—such as warp mesh.

The main aspect of my freelance work, however, is document design and page layout. PagePlus X9 continues to be my workhorse in this area until Affinity Publisher (APub) arrives.

How would I go about becoming a beta tester for APub? I recently finished designing and typesetting a book for a client in PagePlus X9. I'm thinking that I could use the photos, illustrations, and copy from this project in recreating the book design in APub.

Thanks for two great apps in APhot & ADsgn.

And thanks in advance for working on getting APub out of the gate.

I assume it will be a process similar to beta tests for AD and APh. There was an announcement page with the option to register via email.

Keep your eyes open for anouncements here in the forum and as you are already an Affinity user you most likely will receive an email notification of some kind.

Hi Hanzz,

Yes, this summer (2018).

Well, that's convenient. My Adobe subscription agreement runs out at the end of August. I need that replacement for In-Design before I can dump them. MAKE IT HAPPEN! ;)

cfurlin, you might want to change your subscription to "monthly" with the option to cancel anytime in August.  ;o)

 

Often enough it pays to switch when the yearly us about to stop. Many/most of the customer service people will give a better deal to keep it going. Same with even doing another year rental. 


My computer is a nothing-special Toshiba laptop with unremarkable specs running Windows 10 64-bit.

This is why SUBSCRIPTION based software sucks!  I will never support a company that uses the subscription model.  We need to say NO to subscriptions by voting with our wallets and not supporting these subscription companies. Don't subscribe to their software if there is a good alternative for you.  I am happy to say that my business has been subscription free for over two years now and I don't miss the subscription software.  We still get the job done and our customers are very happy.
