Well ! i'm back with this other which i believe will help us all.

Personally i like the way Serif made it cross-edit between all 3 piece of software but ... because there is always a but !
i Think the way it was and is managed is a bit counter productive or maybe not at its fullness.
let me explain !

Here when you have a file opened on APub and want to do some work on it with ADesigner you can Edit with Designer then the whole project is transferred there leaving APub empty of everything but sometime we only want to edit a precise thing such as a smart shape etc... thus making the transfer of the whole project to ADesigner a kind of ... What if Serif could make it possible for us Click on the Object we want to edit and :

1- Right click on it then chose Edit with : Photo or Designer (depending of what we may want to achieve)
2- After selecting the desired object, we can also click the related persona (place where we want to edit) then have that precise thing migrated there for its edit
3- Should be the option we currently have, if we select nothing but click on one of the persona or chose to Edit with ... then whole project get migrated there for its further edit leaving APub Blank.

The first 2 options should leave the core project opened in APub then only we should be able to edit the select object then click save to get its edit saved as an update withing the already opened and not closed project withing APub.
The we can chose to edit only a part of the project without leaving the main tool we use and see the updates in real-time.
Well, more geared peoples can add to this idea and help make this get better.

 

Blessing !

Well the overall problem for implementing this (1 + 2) is to have a clever and foolproof transfer/change/update mechanism, which isn't that easy to handle from a programmatic viewpoint here for single objects. Since sharing and editing single objects with keeping their whole attributes (vectors, pixel, position, size, colors, filters, masks ... etc.) would probably need to be handled on a sort of referenced/shared object layer base here as a common denominator between the apps. Meaning an "Edit with" here would have to transfer the corresponding objects layer between the apps in some locked/released and changed/update way.

Specifically talking about Publisher, I think (but can't be sure) that the intended method of just working on one object on the publisher page will probably be to switch to the Photo or Designer Persona, using the persona buttons (which are currently inactive).

A bigger problem with Edit with Photo (or Designer) from Publisher, if I remember my prior tests correctly, is that Photo and Designer can't navigate between Publisher pages. So once you get to Photo or Designer, you have one page visible. I don't remember which one.

I think that Designer and Photo personas, which are in Publisher, will do this. Maybe it will work on seletced item only as on the whole document, too.
