Sorry, but no export for Epub just now in Affinity Publisher...

Well that blows. I can almost understand no InDesign import just yet... but no epub export? Dang :(

But, mr Skip, We are toward an 1.0 release of something totally new here (not the Publisher alone though), and if you hav'nt already had time to test the Publisher/Designer/Photo-integration yet, you will soon see why Affinity Suite is the future for us semiPro and amateur users!

Affinity Suite will be like AUM on the iPad; it's there everything starts!

So, if you coming back to this software soon enough many "wanted" functions will be there, probably including Epub-export...

I know. I'm firmly in the Affinity camp. I was just frustrated earlier after spending the last couple of days trying to get Pages to format something correctly. And the Apple store keeps cutting off the bottom of my pages when viewed on iPads. There's more that hasn't gone well too. Was just venting some frustration.  

I'm very much looking forward to completely switching over to Publisher, to be honest.

It will be a 20% discount on launch, so for you yes $5USD

Cool. But the pre-launch discount email also says it's 20% off and reads like it's some special deal that's only good for pre-launch. So the discount at launch in the AppStore is for sure 20% off the regular? And, when is it supposed to be in the Appstore? I want to keep all 3 of my Affinity purchases in the Appstore and want to go ahead and move forward with an all Affinity suite.  I've also got Appstore credit I'm going to use on this.

The email says the pre-launch purchases can be downloaded on this coming Wed the 19th. Will it be in the Apple Store then too? I think my beta is still launching, so I can get by with that until it's killed. The specials also include 5 RetroSupplyCo fonts. Will the initial AppStore launch special also include those fonts in the deal?

Anyone who we had as a registered Publisher Beta tester (had the Publisher Beta in their Affinity Store account before 2 weeks ago) got a pre launch email for 30% off. Anyone else (who has not turned off marketing communications) has got an email for a pre-launch offer of 20%, hence your confusion I think.

Sweetness. I got both of those pre-launch discount emails. One for the 30% off for beta appreciation. I've had the beta since around November I think. I used it on some holiday layout print jobs. Nothing that complicated, but everything worked as expected and seemed fairly intuitive coming from InDesign. 

And then I also got the other pre-launch discount email for the 20% off. Yes, a little confusing... but thanks for sorting it out. cheers :)

I missed the 30% off email! I pre-ordered at 20%!! Is it possible to get a quick refund and repurchase at the 30% off price?

HI again. I just saw Publisher pop up in the Apple Store and purchased it. I don't see any offer for the free fonts in the Welcome screen. Will that offer still come since I've already purchased Publisher now? I rather like all of those 5 fonts in the offer.

The offer WILL will appear soon for Mac App Store and Microsoft Store welcome screen feeds. The offer was not there today though. Please check back for the offer tomorrow or anytime afterwards.

Studio Link is pretty effin' sweet! The kind of thing that makes you wonder why it hasn't always been like that in publishing. And being able to open publisher files in Designer & Photo on the iPad. Awesome! Love it!
