Re: Affinity Publisher Public Beta

I just want to confirm my admiration for Affinity Publisher. Not only that it does what I need with InDesign but also it has ability to edit vector graphics as Illustrator. Thank you benwiggy for initially sharing this info!

Re: How to effectively print/ship scores and to be competitive as a publisher?

For me, shipping is the real killer. 10 scores of 32pp on 100gsm paper weigh 1Kg. I send parcels weighing from 0.2Kg to 20Kg, costing from £1 to £100, depending on destination.

Re: Notesizes in Strauss Don Quixote (Jos. Aibl Verlag / UE)

And I could probably Photoshop it after everything else is finished. But it would be laborious.
