Serif has launched its Mac publishing software, Affinity Publisher with StudioLink technology, which  means owners of its vector design app Affinity Designer and image editor Affinity Photo can use them right there in an Affinity Publisher layout, simply by clicking the relevant product icon.

Affinity Publisher is available with a 20% discount (priced fat $39.99) for a limited period. As with all Affinity apps, it has no subscription.

Serif has also updated the iPad versions of Affinity Designer and Photo to handle Affinity Publisher documents. While Publisher itself will come to iPad later, owners of Affinity Designer and Photo on iPad can now open, edit and export Publisher documents.
