The speed of Publisher and ability to pull in the resources of Affinity Designer and Paint on the fly are just awesome. High quality stuff for a good (non-subscription!) price.

Love this app. It may be hard to believe but I deleted my QuarkExpress and iNdesign within a week of getting Publisher. Publisher will satisfy almost any publisher and the app gets better day by day!. Support is without rival. Flexible with virtually any file format. Something that gets rarely mentioned all of the Affinity apps integrate into one another main a huge inexpensive magnificent suite!!!

I'm using for about 5 years SwiftPublisher to design posters. It is great, easy and pleasure to use. Before SP I used Pages, but when I discovered SP and what it can do, I never looked back. How it compares to Affinity Publisher ?

To elaborate: Affinity Publisher has a StudioLink feature that allows instant access to tools inside both Designer and Photo, as long as you have either or both installed. This is brilliant!

Also note that Affinity has a 20% OFF EVERYTHING sale, all platforms, going on in celebration of Publisher's release. This includes Photo, Designer, Publisher, their Vintage Font Bundle, Blast Powder Brushes, Abstract Paint Bundle, Abstract ABC, Tattoo Art Brushes, Daub Paintbox brushes, Neptune Illustration Kit, Emblem Templates, Glitch Effects, Xenon brushes, Chunky Marker Brushes, Daub Watercolours and Washes, Concept Master brushes, Smoke and Cloud brushes, Grave Etcher brushes, Affinity Workbooks, and the Affinity t-shirt. AKA everything.

AND Affinity Publisher currently includes six BONUS Retro Fonts.

Meanwhile, Publisher for iPad is currently in beta.

Affinity Publisher is really an Adobe InDesign killer for desktop publishing for macOS and Windows. Presently, I'm learning how to use the software. So far, I think it's great. Can't wait for the Publisher workbook to be released! Also, I own the macOS and Windows versions of Designer and Photo - now the suite is complete with Publisher.

The developer “Serif Labs” is famous for developing very high-quality software and Affinity Publisher is surely no exception. However, it’s a pity no DEMO is available as this is a new software and unless someone is willing to take a leap in the dark it’s impossible to evaluate it beforehand.

Here you go... :)

Try before you buy. They have a 20% sale going on right now too. I have all three applications for macOS 10.14/10.15 and Windows 10. For the Windows versions just replace "macos" in the links with "windows"

Hello @Macintosh-Sauce and thank you very much for you precious help. I just downloaded a DEMO and am now trying it out. It's undoubtedly a great application and is worth considering. Many thanks again and all the best.

I'm hoping Affinity brings out an Adobe Dreamweaver killer. They've sold me on their software from version 1.0 of Designer and Photo. No more Adobe crapware for me. Publisher is really good. Learning how to use it right now. :)

You're welcome.

They should put these links on their website IMO. They aren't easy to find.

There are "Free trial" links for Photo and Designer, Mac and Windows, at the bottom of their web pages. Serif hasn't yet added the Publisher Free Trial links to its page. As Macintosh-Sauce provided:
