Serif Affinity Publisher
If you need software to create everything from leaflets or posters to a whole eBook, the new Affinity Publisher is coming your way.
As we now expect from Serif Affinity Publisher, it is a fully-fledged, powerful application that provides a comprehensive working environment with an extensive toolset. It replicates most of InDesign’s power and functionality. And, as with Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer, it manages to come up with some novel approaches all of its own.
The interface will be familiar both to users of Affinity’s other products and to seasoned InDesign users. Dockable panels display all the information you need, with a comprehensive menu system that clearly shows all the available tools.
