Placing of text across one and multiple pages, flowing automatically like InDesign does!


Recommended Posts

Hi 

I think this programme has promise but as I'm a graphic designer producing large newsletters I really need to be able to place text from doc, docx, open office, etc and that it will flow across multiple pages, columns.  I will then need to place a photo and get it to text wrap.

Currently can't do this so hope the developers can add this facility.  I am used to Indesign and am sick of paying money to Adobe!  Similarly though I need Illustrator as your Affinity Designer doesn't have a curved pen tool or image trace.  

I fear that your market is going to be tablet users, not graphic designers!!!   In which case, do say.  Thanks

It sounds like you're talking about Publisher, but posted in the wrong forum. Publisher suggestions belong in Discussions and Suggestions for Affinity Publisher Beta on Desktop.

You're right that, so far, Publisher will not insert text from doc/docx/odt files directly. You would have to copy/paste or use rtf format instead.

However, it already supports large amounts of text inserted into a text frame, and flowing into automatically created frames on additional, automatically created pages. And it supports wrapping that text around images (or other objects) that you subsequently place over it.
