loyal customers count: backward compatibility

Recommended Posts

Hi Serif

I've been using Pageplus more or less since it was born. I have been loyal to Serif & recommended it to many friends. When all Affinity products are eventually integrated, you deserve to wipe Adobe [arrogant & unhelpful] & MS Publisher [counter intuitive] off the map. However, many of us have lots of .ppp files, Pageplus logos, etc. It would be a major mistake if Pageplus files, logos etc were not supported to import into the final version of Affinity Publisher.  I note you have now closed that thread. I hope your programmers are even now working on including this in the program or as a plugin.

I apologise in advance for what I am about to write but:

We really do NOT need another thread asking for compatibility between file formats produced by products in the former "Plus" range and those of the new Affinity products.

Serif staff and the developers have posted to numerous threads asking for this (and yes, as a long-time user of most of the Plus products over many years, I understand why this compatibility would be very useful) to explain why this is very unlikely to happen soon, if ever.  I'm not going to repeat the reasons here, they're quite easy to find in several threads in the forum, and the pdf export option from the Plus range is, IMO, a perfectly reasonable method of transfer between the two sets of apps, at least for now, and possibly for ever!!

Just my opinion!  I'll wait for the brickbats to fly in my direction! :)

Long-time user of Serif products, chiefly PagePlus and PhotoPlus, but also WebPlus, CraftArtistProfessional and DrawPlus.  Delighted to be using Affinity Designer, Photo, and now Publisher, version 1 and now version 2.
