Quote from: zox on February 07, 2021, 03:09:40 PMThis is first time I am trying PUblisher (I've had Designer since beta days) and big news is that allows "passthrough" for placed PDF's.That was kind of let down since it was "re-frying" your PDFs and screwing embedded fonts, not it can pass PDF intact through.I downloaded trial and will be testing it for 90 days, thanks to new offer but I am already inclining to pay.What I see in the future will be challenge of Adobe fonts, but we'll cross that bridge.Now, if someone can come up with Acrobat replacement, that would be really something that would be something...

Quote from: Joe on July 14, 2022, 06:43:55 AMI think it can open IDML documents from InDesign. Unless they dropped that functionality. Never really had a need for it so I don't know how well it worked.
Quote from: RMPrepress on July 14, 2022, 06:59:20 AMThanks guys.Downloaded the trial and it looks interesting especially the way they have integrated their versions of Photoshop and Illustrator right into Affinity Publisher. One thing i noticed right away is how much quicker it is compared to InDesign.It seems to be gaining some traction out there as the reviews are very positive.It has only been out about two years so Im sure it will only get better.Who knows could be a scenario like 15 - 20 years ago when InDesign came along and slowly but surely squeezed out Quark as the de facto page layout/desktop application.

You have to remember that the people doing the coding don't really know the ins and outs of what they are coding for. That is the biggest reason why a lot of software doesn't work exactly as we think it should. Hello Adobe....
