Publisher, dont know how to have multiple version for 1 document.

Recommended Posts

Hi,
I'm an indesign veteran. Ready to make the jump to publisher but there is one thing I don't know how to do:

I have one document that changes every 6 months. So basically its the same document and only a few items change (texts + pictures + prices). Here is how I do it in indesign to minimize the errors.
Get several layers with my basics "hard" informations that will never change.
Get a layer on top with informations for my version 1
Get a layer on top with informations for my version 2

If I need to display version 1 I activate my hard layers + version 1 (version 2 is OFF)
If I need to display version 2 I activate my hard layers + version 2 (version 1 is OFF)

When I activate a "layer" in indesign, informations will change on all pages at the same time.

How would you replicate this behavior in Publisher ?
I understand that layers in publisher very much work like into af photo, in indesign its less precise BUT make it possible to change several pages in one click.

I hope someone has an idea :)

Affinity Publisher has layers, so you will be able to setup your document similar to that of your InDesign document. We also have master pages available, these can be applied to individual or multiple pages within the document, see this video for more information.
