I get garbage files from all sorts of programs, least of them is Adobe software though and it is much easier to fix them in the right app then opening a file that was made in something else and hope things translate well.
Affinity did release a dumb teaser video about their page layout app, they are calling it "Publisher". Worst name ever as every prepress guy in the world has had issues with Microsoft Publisher files. That aside it will be coming out, I think they said a beta would be out next year. I will buy it just to check it out as the software is cheap enough, I have no doubt that I will not be able to replace Indesign with it. Indesign is my main app, Illustrator and Photoshop are useful tools but I barely use them compared to Indesign.
Yeah they have said the beta would be out next year for a few years now. I had mentioned the name earlier and I agree Publisher was a bad name to use. Might as well have called Affinity PageMaker®.
My main app is Acrobat/Pitstop. No one is working on a replacement for that. Or should I say a reasonably priced replacement.
