Hi Everyone, Staff

Well i know there are couples of subjects concerning the possibility to create mockups with ADesigner or APhoto but ... what if we are simply missing the point and trying to recreate another aready existing Adobe concept?

i mean, Designer is a vector oriented software (with pixel persona i know) and Photo is Pixel oriented (with much more we all believe we have seen there) but on the other hand Publisher look similar to inDesign, a place you put together things you ahev designer on both hands (Vectors and Pixels). What if the possibility of creating mockups is implemented into Publisher instead of ADesigner or Aphoto.

let's say i have to design a Flyer/Poster with vectors and photos/pictures (well even a business card ... don't why i chosed a Poster).
I would:
1- Prepared everything vector with designer and save them in a folder as .afdesign file
2- Work on my photo/picture (this takes times so ... better make it with the right tool) the save it into another folder as .afphoto file
3- Create my project using the right profile (A3 Print, CMYK/8) then simply place what i've created in there and adjust them to fit and APub would be also what i would use for text and blending (if needed) and from there have an option of creating a mockup from that precise place (APub).

Well the option for creating mockups should be Auto (for Beginners) and Manual (for advanced peoples).
My point here is, if APub can take care of "smart objects" and the whole mockup thing then Photograph would focus on APhoto and enjoy the power of the tool when illustrators would enjoy the power of ADesigner when those who work on Publishing document and making demos etc... would also focus and enjoy APub.
To me this will help the respective teams to not try to create things that can create great confusion if we realize it's not where it should be or simply ... we have all asked for another Adobe like piece of software.

Maybe we will see a community of Mockups Creator/Designer surface/migrate/be born into the Affinity space, peoples who will create then share/sell what will save life but stay focus and improve into doing that and helping the Serif Publisher team to improve that functionality for that precise software.

it's just an idea, what do you think about or have to add.
Please i may have missed an already said thing but feel free to direct me.


Blessings !
