I'm not being flippant. But my experience with this software's different version and using it on different computers has been nothing short of excruciating. I am not a simpleton either. I understand how to use the software. But I find that it simply does not operate the way I expect. And what I expect is that it works -that it doesn't crash constantly and that it doesn't refuse to export SVGs with unknown errors and that it inserts models without issue. I have never experienced such difficulty with a software package as I have with Publisher. It's become a joke in our office that it's simply impossible to work with. But the joke is on us because we've spent one hell of a lot of money on something that simply doesn't work the way it should.
So that's my experience - and I'm curious, how many others feel similarly? I've all but abandoned use of Publisher and instead do everything I need in Autodesk Inventor. That software works like a DREAM. It's quick and beautiful and amazing. But Inventor Publisher is, in my opinion, a waste of my time, effort, and our company's money. Anyone else feel the same way?
i use inventor publisher on a daily basis, its got one hell of a learning curve for sure, but with the 1000+ part assemblies we do i have had no problem working around the layout,
i do have some complaints about it, but for the most part, it does exactly what its supposed to, publishes finished designs to web, mobile, or PDF file.
publishing to mobile is difficult, as if you have an unsupported file in the mobile folder your App will crash,
just keep at er, its great for showing off files while at lunch with the VP cause u just happen to have your Iphone with IPM viewer on it.
