Default Affinity Publisher final version ready for pre-order

Affinity Publisher 1.7 is due for download on the 19th of June. You can pre-order now and get 20% off.



Those wanting to leave Adobe behind now have another option in the Affinity triumvirate.

Yep. I have been beta testing it since August 2018. Buggy at first in some regards. However, got a lot more stable in recent weeks.

The final product is now ready for ordering and downloading. One of the neat things about Affinity Publisher is its personas.



Persona's exist in Afinity Designer and Photo for the creation of various effects and exporting. In Publisher, personas allow you to change the program to be a be a vector app by using most of Designer's tools and a photo/bitmap app by using most of Photo's tools all from within Publisher's main interface! You need to have Designer and Photo installed of course.

So do you have to have the other software (Designer and Photo) installed for this to work?

Also, do you know about the following?
Quote:
the Plugins menu for some reason is not working in Publisher running in the Photo persona. Nor are there any plugin settings (folders!) available in the Publisher settings dialogs. So plugins support has not (yet?) been implemented in the Affinity Photo 'simulator'. I have read that the same applies for a few more other features normally available in Affinity Photo.

Yes, you do have to have Designer and Photo for this dynamic linkeage to work. They also all have to be exactly the same version as well.



As far as plug-ins are concerned, I'm not sure as Idon't have any installed.
