Hi,

Alex here from Druide informatique, editor of Antidote (https://antidote.info). Some of our users are requesting the ability to use both software (Designer and Antidote) simultaneously and as seamless as possible.

How can we deliver that to our mutual users?

Thanks,

Alex

Hi, welcome to the Affinity forums.

I am NOT a Serif employee but I would suggest you repost to the dedicated Customer Service area of the forum, taking particular notice of this pinned post.

Emmrecs01 is correct. Please send an email to affinity@serif.com and it will be forwarded to the relevant team :)

@Alexandre Larouche I am a big fan of Antidote, and I was planning to request Druide consider integration with Affinity Publisher once it is out of beta. I am very much encouraged to see you are already looking into the possibility, and that it seems from @TonyB's post that Serif is open to considering it.

I see this was requested about Affinity Designer, but of course it would be even more applicable to Affinity Publisher, and I hope of course that the common architecture of Publisher and Designer would mean that if one gets integrated, both apps can be. For me, integration with Designer would be nice to have, and I might use it occasionally, but it would be indispensable in Publisher, as we are looking to replace Adobe InDesign with Affinity Publisher as it matures.

I understand Serif has their hands full with so many requests, especially while Affinity Publish is still so new. So I can be understanding that making possible third-party integration might take some time. I shall try to be patient.

I return to this thread today only to put in a further good word for Druide and their product Antidote following another stellar support case I experienced with them. The background is that my preferred email program, Postbox, removed plugin support with Postbox 6 (I think it was a case outside their control), and that broke integration with Antidote. Postbox 7 just launched with a new “labs” feature that apparently is something like plugins or extensions. And no sooner had the email announcement gone out about Postbox 7 than I read about it, clicked to learn more about the labs feature, and discovered that Antidote is one of only three third parties to have support already underway.

I wrote to Druide about something related to this, and, without going into details, I just want to say that they went quite beyond the call of duty. If any of you are looking for an advanced resource for grammar, spelling and typography correction in French and/or English, including really excellent and extensive language resources for these two languages, I suggest you check out Antidote 10.

They are a good company and offer a good product, just like Serif. I hope the two will be able to collaborate soon.

(While I’m at it, I also commend the team behind Postbox for working hard to bring back integrations. The new Postbox 7 is a worthy upgrade in other respects as well, and I am glad to be back with Postbox.)

I've been using Antidote since the first version years ago... integration with Affinity software, in particular Publisher, would be a big plus.

Glad to see another user of Postbox. I'm very happy with it as my email client for several years now.
