I won't need to upgrade from InDesign CS6 until I need a 64bit app, after macOS 10.15 comes out next year. By then Affinity Publisher will be out of beta. If it can handle my InDesign files, I will be switching. Assuming Serif follows the pricing policy they use with Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer, it will cost $50 for a single standalone license—no subscription necessary. I've used InDesign for years but cannot afford the Adobe tax. Though the blurb above says you can get InDesign for $9.99 a month if you're a previous InDesign customer, there is no way on their purchase page to get that discount. Maybe they'll lower the price once Publisher has stolen some of their customers, but I'm not holding my breath.

Adobe InDesign is a clean page layout program. You can combine all your graphics from Illustrator and Photoshop to create multiple page breaks and layouts. Newer versions of Adobe InDesign at crackplease have more interactive output options. You can create e-books for devices like a Kindle. You can also create schemas for viewing on tablets such as the iPad.

The new Quark $400 competitive update looks like a pretty good deal to me. It is certainly better then sticking with an old copy of InDesign CS6 I think.

I can't find it here at MU (which is weird), but feel I should post a link to VivaDesigner for all those who are getting fed up with the Adobe subscription model that simply isn't delivering its money worth of updates and improvements. At this stage I have no experience with VivaDesigner, but the info on their website sounds promising. http://www.viva.us/en/products/desktop-publishing/vivadesigner-desktop-version

One star for one bug fix out of dozens! From CS6 Adobe introduced a range of bugs to torment book designers! The bug that is fixed at flaming last is the fatal error InDesign Must shut down if you dare to change the page size with anything locked on the page, but they have introduced an extra level to the main bug, as a book designer a mechanical is made by making the document the page width + page width + spine! the height is the height, to change the spine you add or take away from the default spine width, but whereas anything in the slug used to move randomly, the get around was to group the items, not bless their cotton socks they have made the App randomly move thing regardless of if they are grouped or not! This is a major BUG as far as book cover designers are concerned we have to change spines all the time, so this breaks every workflow out there, to have these bugs present for so long is a disgrace! But at least we do not have the fatal error now, instead if the folds are locked InDesign just moves them anyway - IDIOTS!

I despise Adobe on many levels. Their shitty application frame implementation and subsequent Houdini interface disappearing act is so aggravating over time. Will those corporate monopolistic thieves ever get in line with Apple's windowing system? I've wasted so much time fixing this issue over and over, year after year. I really hope Serif's desktop publishing offering (makers of Affinity Photo and Designer) will allow me to FINALLY FORGET ABOUT ADOBE ALTOGETHER. InDesign is really the only app left I cannot yet replace.

So CC 2017. A few miserable tweaks and this is a 'new and improved' version for all us suckers who are paying $100s a year for the pleasure. For now I'm stuck with it due to workflow and industry expectations, but I can't wait for Affinity Publisher to give Adobe a run for their (our!) money next year.
