I love Publisher! Great program! But I think there are some things, one could do, to make it even better. Sure, you´re working on that.

1. There must be the possibility to import indd or idml files. This is crucial.

2. What about the option to build a bibliography? Is this already possible?

3. I mentioned it in another place: Footnotes are very important.

4. It would be great having the opportunity to put the actual chapter of a book in the headline of a page automatically (maybe via text field). So I can allways see, in wich chapter I´m working or the reader is reading.

We’ve been told that IDML import will be added but we’re unlikely to see it in the initial release. INDD import probably won’t be added any time soon, if ever.

4. This is usually done with text variables inserted to master pages. Publisher does not seem to have it yet.

It has some variables (View > Studio > Fields) but not chapter title.
