I had someone contact me last week asking me to put together an entire 96-page magazine in Affinity Publisher. I’ve used Affinity Designer off and on for a year or so, but this has been the first chance I’ve had to really put Affinity Publisher (wish they’d named it something different) to the test. I’ve been using it for most of the week now.
It’s just similar enough to InDesign to be frustrating, but I’m impressed given that it’s still version 1.x. There are a few quirky things about it, like the way it handles the frames on placed images, but I’m getting used to it.
