  1. Alright, an update on this issue. Its seems that the problem with both isssues has something to do with windows doing update installing in the background. To solve the issues I opened windows update and made sure it installed alle latest updates and then restarted the machine. After making sure no update / installing process was runnning on the machine I uninstalled Publisher Beta and installed from the newest installer on the forums. It seems to have solved the issue. I will update this if any further issues arise but so far so good...

  3. Im getting into some sticky mud here. I'm the technincal administrator of an architectural office in Norway. I am advocating for the use of affinity products instead of Adobe after using your apps privately and finding it a positive experience. So we are trying to evaluate using Affinity Publisher at our office and everybody is trying it out, but today it did not want to open, saying a usual "the beta is too old, download the new one...". I downloaded the newest beta but upon running it says "Setup Failed"... I then repooted, ran as admin but nothing works. Now I wish to get rid of the program on our system but it cant uninstall saying "Another program is being installed"... I now have everybody else who use Affinity at our office staring down my neck asking me how to solve this. Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I feel as if im well into a deadend here... I have attached the failed setup log files. Setup.log SetupUI.log
  4. This is getting kind of bad. I have now tried to unistall Affinity Publisher but it just gives me and error saying another process is installing something and then hang there....
  5. I'm having same issue. Reboot does not fix the problem. I have tried on two different machines running windows 10. Both have same issue. I have attached the log as detailed above. Setup.log SetupUI.log
  6. Yeah, but thats the issue. The connection to the server does not break. And we work with many other programs directly on the files on the server without issue. Rhino, Revit, Office, Blender, Atom, Scribus etc... Affinity apps copy the file to a temp location on the local machine while editing them and only upload to the server on save, right? I'm also perplexed as to why it would just cut all ropes and abandon ship if it lost the connection for a second. Can it not reconnect? It has happened quite a few times and now also with the Publisher Beta. Which is a bit of a hastle with the workaround of copying the file down manually as we would need to copy all the shared images on the server as well as they are linked into publisher. Is there any way we can help to pin point this issue and solve it?
  7. Hi! Is it possible or could it be made possible to toggle "show image borders"? As of now you have to select the image to show the border but for layout purposes it would be nice to skim though the document and see that everything is nicely lined up without having to select everything. Best regards. Ejnar
  8. Hi Affinity. We are having a great time using your three programs at our office. Great work. At late we are experiencing some small paper cuts though. One which has happened a few times is if the connection to our server where the file is stored is lost. In this case affinity prompts that it cant get access to the file and must therefore close the file leaving an autosaved copy. The original file is corrupted and can only be deleted not overwritten. Would it be possible to just give the user an option to save the document somewhere else instead of closing it? Or even reevaluate/retry the access from the prompt? All the best.

  9. +10 for scale around point. Affinity programs have so many nice workflows which are better than the competition. Its annoying that when you present the programs to people using other programs these papercuts often cut deeper than the other features impress...
  10. I would like to add my voice to this. I respect that you have a vision and a limited scope of development. It has brought you very far and your applications are wonderful. The boundary between the desktop and the touch device is blurring though. And your approach to touch friendly interface on the iPad has really set your apps apart from the competition. It would be a pitty not to utilize what great potential you have unlocked in that on the windows version as the windows world is moving towards touchsentric workflows as well. I have the iPad version of both your apps but I have to migrate to a surface pro to use other software that is not Mac compatible. I would greatly appreciate it if you could at least reconsider future streamlining for touch interfaces on windows now that you have found some good experience with it on the Mac platform. Thanks for the hard work so far. Best regards Ehnar Brendsdal
