And grabbed!

Though unlike with Photo and Designer, which I had previous experience with using PS and (a tiny bit of) Illustrator, I have absolutely no idea what I'm doing here. I might watch some InDesign tutorials, and see if I can replicate what I learn here.

It'd be a great way to beta test too, since I'll be stumbling through everything, and will likely end up doing something wrong over and over again. :P

edit: just found the tutorialswhich should also help out Mr. Schülke above.

A TRIUMPHANT TRIUMVIRATE OF PROGRAMS  - effin well done Affinity!!

9 years on Quark Express - at least same again on InDesign - first glance, this publishing program looks best yet by a long way.

Except for all the legacy LR files, I will soon be able to leave Adobe for good with no regrets.

Tom,

https://affinity.serif.com/tutorials/publisher/desktop/
But if you start the application there's a image link too in the popup window. ;)

And a question to the devs:
I understand this is beta, but will the file format change before the final?
I would like to start fiddling with this, but not have to redo all the work later on ;)

cheers!

p.s. Watched the videos, love the app already :)

Quite possiblly yes. This beta is NOT something we would recommend you doing mission critical work in. Where possible we would try to make it load existing .afpub files but I can imagine we may still have to change something that will lead to some files not loading "correctly" as they did in the previous build.

Gotcha!

Will keep the testing for... well... testing ;)

But it's great to see it finally " in the wild"  so to speak :D

Thanks Renziatic... 

i just found it too....     to read and not to jump right to the downloadbutton would have been easier...  

That's about what I did too. The moment I saw it Publisher was finally available, I rushed through to get to the download. Ended up stumbling on the tutorial link from the splash screen the 2nd time I loaded it up.

Sorry have asked elsewhere but cannot find it at the moment. I cannot see how to fill an ellipse with text only to follow the path of the ellipse.  Is there a way to fill a shape such as an ellipse with text?  In PagePlus I could just convert a shape to a text box.  Is this something I am missing in Affinity Publisher or are we limited to just a rectangular text box?

 


Please be aware that NSA/GCHQ are probably admiring my sent images

One important Question for me...  
At the moment, Publisher doesnt seem to import and export Indesign Documents    While this is unimportant when i work on my own, my company has to deal with external experts in various areas and we sometimes have cooperations with them.  So in some cases we give them our indesign documents to further finetune them and to add further information to our architectural plans. 

Will this work in the future ?  Will we have import end export functionality to indesign ?

Perfect installation... first impressions of the bat.. VERY IMPRESSIVE!!! Very impressive indeed! Looks like everything that's needed (at least for my intended workflow is there!)

I can't wait to buy it when the retail version is released!.. I totally love everything I've see so far!!!! awesome work guys!

Just one thing that does come to mind if Affinity were to create a Pro - Prepress biased PDF tool  then I'd be able to be completely rid of Adobe.. I have not found any other PDF tool that comes close to Acrobat.. :(

Cheers guys!!!
