I thought it would be wonderful if you could export a Publisher file to powerpoint, or even add som features to powerpoint to become a powerpoint editor. As I was preparing for a powerpoint presentation, I realised that I could export my Publisher file, in which each page was edited in Designer, using master pages for background design, to pdf. Then I used one of the free online facitlites to convert the pdf to powerpoint with all layers etc preserved! Then i the powerpoint editor I could add various animations etc. Thus Affinity could be used as en excellent tool for creating advanced powepoint presentations!

Interesting suggestion, although my personal preference would be Apple Keynote output.

Hi all,

Since the first edition of Indesign and switching to Affinity Publisher when the beta was released, I have been using them to generate my presentations quasi exclusively. And I love it!

I am making typically 1 new presentation a week and am fond of the way these software allow a far better use of styles, fine image placement, still visual effects.

I am not using any animation (but often find them more distracting than useful).

I am exporting to PDF and this is always ok where I have to talk.

Of course it would be even simpler if Publisher:

- had a way to switch directly to presentation view mode for tests rather than the sequence discussed in other posts,

- could export to PPT files

- could import movies

... but it is already great as it is and I never regret PowerPoint.
