Only a few words about this great piece of software:

- I tried to install IndesignCC on a low end PC with a tiny Intel Celeron with Win 7... Doesn't work!

- Affinity Publisher (beta) on the same computer: Works very well.

So, you know what is the one I'll use...

Of course Apub doesn't have all the features PageX9 has but it's a great soft as well.

 

My 2 cents.

Affinity Publisher is a terrific, heavy-duty desktop publisher that, as a Mac user, I've been waiting for. I've used DTP applications since the days of Letraset's Ready, Set, Go! Used Aldus PageMaker for many years at work. Now, I've been using Swift Publisher 5 for home use, but it's a light-weight program. I'm so grateful that a powerful, full-featured program like Affinity Publisher is about to premier. Going through Beta 1.7.0.227 is truly an outstanding tool.

Totally agree.   Affinity Publisher Beta v. 227 is sophisticated and smoooooooooth on my Mac.   Haven’t had this much fun writing in years!!    (Even with the forewarned “not yet ready” caution from the developers.)  Also a many-years Pagemaker then InDesign user, having created over 38,200 pages with them.

Does that surprise you?

It's built for performance!

See yourself: To be "Lightning fast" is point number one of the Affinity vision manifest and I can also confirm that they indeed well succeded on this. :)
