RyS Posted September 14, 2018 Share Posted September 14, 2018 I was going to post this elsewhere but the topic was closed to further comment. There have been many postings on the relationship between PagePlus and Publisher. When the Affinity range was being introduced I remember reading that the aim was to reach design professionals who worked with Macs. It would appear that Serif were not turning their backs on PagePlus users but all users of Windows. Along the line this has changed. I assume Serif have become aware that there are a substantial number of professionals working on Windows but that does not warrant the work/cost that would be involved in providing compatibility for the PagePlus customers they were happy to discard. This is not written as a bitter PagePlus user. I have tried PagePlus at various times and have X9 installed, but I have been a happy user of InDesign since it was first introduced. I am now retired and do much less with DTP so I stick with InDesign CS6 rather than pay a subscription. Publisher seemed to offer the possibility of a reasonably priced up to date alternative but I am put off by the feeling that Serif have shown that loyalty to customers is not their prime aim. Which is a great shame as there is much to like and look forward to with Affinity. Jowday and AlainP 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
