Teejay, I went through the first four but the things he talked about were standard desktop publishing things.  I do it the same way in PagePlus.  So, I skipped down to the last one to see how page numbers are done.  Very nice - easier than PagePus.   I will eventually watch all of them just so I don't miss something.

I do feel he should not have started with the assumption you're making facing pages.   That mucks it up for those who are new to this stuff.   I've been doing DTP for about the last 28 years so this is coming pretty easy to me.    You should try it for writing a tut.  When I get some time, I want to make a template for our tuts to use in APub.  Bottom line - I like it!!  Maybe that's because I won't have to work hard to learn it!   :laugh1:

I played with APub for a bit earlier today and it's very much like AD and AP.  If you have a .pdf file, open it in aPub so you have something to play with.  You can edit it as much as you want.  It does an excellent job on importing PDF's   The the features I use a LOT in my Desktop publishing is converting images to black and white (the printer doesn't do color) and adjusting the darkness, and removing white backgrounds.  I can use adjustments to go B&W but have not found a way to remove backgrounds yet.

Overall, It's starting out to be a pretty good program!  Time will tell once I create an entire document.  If you're writing a tut, try it!   The options to switch to AD and AP are not active but that in itself will be a huge help. I like how they will be able to interact with one another . :brav01:

I downloaded it this morning but have not had a chance to play with it for more than a few minutes.  I use Serif's PagePlus which is excellent and full of features.  I doubt that the Affinity Publisher will measure up.   One thing that I like is, it does load fast!  I wish AD did!  It's sort of like when we went from DrawPlus to AD.  DrawPlus had it all, AD is still behind.  I can see A Publisher is the same way.  Has a long way to go to compare with PagePlus.

I guess we have to keep in mind that programs are in their infancy and have lots of room for growth.  I do like that the included the option to use the light interface. :cheergirl:
