Hi Trackman,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Currently no (Publisher). If you're running  macOS and using Designer or Photo, you can do it going to menu File ▸ Acquire. There's no scanning functionality on Windows due to poor 64-bit scan driver support.

If others can do it, why can't Affinity?

Hi @jknott,

most likely because there had been no time to program it and a decision was made that this is not of high priority (yet).

I personally prefer to use workarounds if there is a good solution that does it for me. There are so many different well working solutions for scanning with an external program that I don't miss it in any of the Affinity programs. I'd rather see the team work on things that are not easily replaced with something that is there already :)

This means reduced functionality compared with Page Plus.

But Affinity Publisher is not meant to have the same feature set as the old line of Serif's Software. This has been stated several times.

Affinity Photo will not direct scan either!

This means reduced functionality compared with Page Plus.

Setting aside the fact that Affinity Photo should be compared with PhotoPlus, not PagePlus, it’s always been better to scan to a separate file. If you scan directly into your PagePlus project, the scanned image is embedded in the project file, thereby making the file unnecessarily large. Bloating is a primary cause of corrupted PP documents.
