    Affinity Range Mac Beta Release Notifications

    These are the current beta builds. Please follow this thread for forum notifications of new Mac beta builds Affinity Designer Customer beta build 1.7.0.10 for MacOS (NEW) Affinity Photo Customer Beta build 1.7.0.120 for MacOS Affinity Publisher Public Beta build 1.7.0.293 for MacOS
  2. Serif allow customers to test new builds of the software even before it is released to the public. These "beta" builds offer an opportunity to trial bug fixes, add support for new file formats and show off new features before they are launched. This post is designed to be an aid to knowing if you are trying the latest beta version of the Affinity software on your platform. Product Name | Platform | Purchase Store | Beta Ver. | ====================|==================|=================|===========| Affinity Designer | MacOS 10.7-10.14 | Mac App Store | 1.7.0.10 | Affinity Designer | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | Affinity Store | 1.7.0.10 | Affinity Photo | MacOS 10.7-10.14 | Mac App Store | 1.7.0.120 | Affinity Photo | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | Affinity Store | 1.7.0.120 | Affinity Publisher | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | Affinity Store | 1.7.0.293 | MacOS Customer Betas require you to be an owner of the paid for version of the software to work. You either need to have the software installed on the same computer as the customer beta OR if you bought direct from the affinity.store website you can provide the product key to activate the beta. If you would like to try the MacOS Customer Beta build look for the top (pinned) post in each of these forums: Affinity Designer beta for Mac Affinity Photo beta for Mac Before we launch Affinity Publisher, if you are interested in trying Publisher please add a download to your store account here . The pre-release download is free and available for anyone to see if this new application will be right for you. Also keep an eye on the top pinned thread in these beta forums, for news of fixes, new file formats and additional features and early access to new build download links. Affinity Publisher Public beta for Mac Windows build numbers and Mac builds are technically independent. The third number increases each time a public release is made, the last number is generated by a build server and so not directly related to each other. I will update/edit this post as new MacOS Beta releases are added by the developers. This thread is locked and will only be posted to by Serif Staff when the beta release versions are updated. Please follow this thread if you want to know about future version changes. If you think this post has got behind announcing the MacOS beta updates and needs updating please PM me.

    Affinity Designer Customer Beta (1.7.0.9)

    Affinity Designer (for Mac) beta 1.7.0.10 is now available
  4. @doomy Well now I feel bad... The welcome was for you, but the summary was more for all readers and I didn't read any criticism of us into your post. Thanks for being so nice about it.
  5. @doomy Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums You cannot expect us to keep posting about things we are not doing, but the 2016 post still currently holds true. It's surprising that so many people think that they will be able to replace all the Adobe products, not only in one go, but from only one alternative provider, who's starting from scratch. i guess I'm saying either "If now then not only us" .... or perhaps "Only us, but not right now"
  6. The latest Affinity Publisher Mac public beta #292 / #293 has all UI locales available. In the app menu, Preferences > General you can choose any of the 10 languages, restart the application and experience Affinity Publisher in that locale. We are hoping that the localisation is now basically correct, but if you see any words or phrases that are out of the ordinary, or are clipped/cropped short in the Mac build PLEASE report them in this thread, stating the language and version you are running and what OS you are seeing the problem on. Use this thread (Do not make new threads) unless you are seeing a bug that does not happen in English, so Bugs in new threads, localisation issues in this thread

    Yes it means one or both of those. If I was a betting man I would say the former is likely true, and that the latter is also likely true, but not this specific feature. It is certainly also true that additions have been made with each update that are not on the roadmap, so I think you are trying to play with words and read too much into them.
  8. Sorry that this regression has been introduced in build 293. We are working on a solution.

    @mr@martinrichardsonimages Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums This has been requested before and is something we will look at in the future, but is not part of the current roadmap.
  10. The latest Affinity Publisher Windows public beta #292 has all UI locales available. In the Edit menu > Preferences > General you can choose any of the 10 languages, restart the application and experience Affinity Publisher in that locale. We are hoping that the localisation is now basically correct, but if you see any words or phrases that are out of the ordinary, or are clipped/cropped short in the Windows build PLEASE report them in this thread, stating the language and version you are running and what OS you are seeing the problem on.

    Image trace equivalent (Illustrator)

    @Calligraphy Nancy Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums This function is still not available in Affinity Designer. People are currently drawing over scans of their sketches and inked work
  13. @roekeloos Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums I'm not sure why you reopened this old thread... did you follow the link in the post above yours? It represents a way to refresh the list without the software constantly listening out for new fonts being installed.
  14. Because of sandboxing Affinity Photo from Serif doesn't run on Lion or Mountain Lion. That's not true of the Mac app store version. Email affinityreturns@serif.com from the same email address you bought the software and we can refund you if you would rather use the Mac App Store version
  15. Is the source file open or closed at the time? Can you provide the source file for the text styles? Does this happen when importing into a new blank document? If so can you save a blank new document and provide that too. If not can you provide the destination file that crashes when you import the text styles?
  16. To clarify. We cannot offer those who buy from the Mac app store or Microsoft store an alternative license as we do not know who they are, so swapping is not an option. We are not going to charge a different price for our Affinity store version. To allow customers of the Affinity store version to swap but not Mac app store owners to swap would be unfair on our early adopters who had no choice of how to purchase. This is a fair system.

    Affinity Photo crashing when you use the Selection Brush Tool.

    Nick W Turner, Thanks for your report and your patience. Your other thread will be addressed by staff shortly after the Easter holidays.
  18. @gbrampage Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums Sorry, this problem was introduced in this latest beta. I think it only happens when the drag starts outside of an artboard. It was an unintended consequence of fixing not being able to drag select multiple artboards, and will be fixed very soon, hopefully in the next beta.
  19. Yes there is. Affinity software was initially sold on the Mac app store. Those sales are Apples customers. Serif have no idea who those customers are and it breaks the store rules to have a way to find out. Affinity software was then sold on Windows, directly from our website, for the same price as on the Mac app store as we don't want to discriminate based on your choice of OS. If we give customers who buy directly from us both operating systems (for the same price as our first customers who bought from the Mac app store) that would be very unpopular and unfair. Now we have added selling the Mac version from the Affinity store and the Windows version from the Microsoft store (where customers information belongs to Microsoft and is again invisible to Serif so there is no way to offer an equivalent Mac download to those customers). All sales are at the same one price. So by charging per operating system we can treat all our customers fairly no matter when they adopt our software.
  20. The latest Windows beta 293 has a modified thumbnail provider that has its dependencies fixed. That may have been the problem. Please resave in the latest beta and let us know, thanks
  21. We have reproduced the crash and reported it to the developers. Thanks for bringing this to our attention.

    Metadata for images

    Thanks R C-R, but DavidS24 was a spammer afterall.

    Alarm! misshapen assets

    I would prefer to get them corrected @Oval the developers do not make the content so this would not impact features or fixes. I'll see what can be done.
  24. Do you get the same result for a "new document", as the rulers are showing corrupt too, which implies a graphics card problem or just possibly a colour profile issue.
  25. screenshot shows picture.PNG. I suspect some unsupported bit depth or colour format
