Footnotes / endnotes


Recommended Posts

Hi, This is my first post and have been using Designer on an experimental basis.  I come from using InDesign and Photoshop.

Overall very good and easy to use.  Impressed.

As a technical author I need footnotes.  Its a MUST.  No footnotes, no buy Publisher when it comes out

Perhaps I have missed something, but Affinity please note.

Hello, I know this has been raised on other forums but as this seems to be the latest query concerning a footnotes provision, I would just like to add a plea for this and to ask if there is any news on this. As someone who has worked in the educational publishing field, this is an important factor in book design, thanks.

Is there anything specific about footnotes that you can't create with a separate textbox?

As far as I know Footnotes will not be available upon release of Publisher but will be added in a later update.

Do you have any idea of the time-scale for footnotes/endnotes to be offered? Months? Years? Serif don't seem to appreciate how vital they are for many types of publications...

Not everything, one appreciates, can be accompished in an initial version of an application.

Or the other way round: Not everything, what isn‘t present in the initial version of an application, isn‘t appreciated.

Why, oh why being that impatient? If the actual state of an application doesn‘t Match my needs, I simply don‘t use it.

I doubt it will be this year. It's not that we don't appreciate how much some documents need them, it's that it will take time to do, and we don't want to delay the release waiting for them.

I bought Affinity Publisher this week but I really need footnotes.  Like the people above Affinity Publisher will be useless to me without them! Never occurred to me that it wouldn't be possible to use them one way or another!

 

FYI, if it's truly useless to you, and you bought directly from Serif (not from Apple or Microsoft) then you can use Serif's 14-day return policy to get your money back.

(Of course, you could also have discovered the lack of footnotes during the Trial period, before buying.)

Hi there, as some time has passed, no new yet, when footnotes become available? Footnotes and endnotes, and best would even be both at the same time, is also essential to me. So please add it as feature and i would be happy to switch to publisher. Thank You! Without automatic footnotes is a headache. I've done it, but you can not add one later one and so forth … Thank you for your consideration!
