Affinity Designer: Pages feature in 1.7?

Recommended Posts

hi.

it's 2 years that i'm waiting for the "pages" feature in Affinity Designer (it's in the roadmap!)

since i have to renew my Sketch license.. but I'd like to start my next project with AD if it had pages, any new hints if it is being developed and maybe introduced in 1.7?

NOTE: i think that with the Pages feature, AD could be really used for advanced apps/games UI and prototypes

thanks!

 


Stefano - i've finally switched totally to AP and AD (from Pixelmator, Sketch, Graphic, GIMP, after a dozen years with Adobe products). looking forward for Affinity Publish!

Just out of curiosity, what would a "Pages" feature do?
Do the existing artboards not do you what you want? They're very useful.

separate the contents into different pages inside the same doc.

yes Artboard are nice.. but if you have say different area of the app, or separate the UI elements from the wireframes, different options.. one big pages with dozens of artboards isn't the best option.

and i can't separate them into different documents since it's the same project with shared symbols!

They serve a different purpuse. In this Topic you can see more about it.

And while it's not a solution, @stefano.cecere, you could see my AFDESIGN file I uploaded there for a possible workaround.

Best regards!

Ah, I think I understand now, thanks Mithferion. The video on the other post is very helpful.
It's not something that I would use often but I can see where it would be very useful when needed.

I Just purchased Sketch a few months ago myself. Pages are too essential to the way I work. That it can also do artboards and layers is AMAZING.

I have not mastered it yet so it seems to me it does not have all the glossy stuff I love in affinity photo and designer but the race is on! Its anyones game.
