This beta is an update to the 2.0.0 version recently released to all customers and will form the basis of our first patch. We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the release version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below. If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry. - Trash added bottom left for quick delete (command controller toggle now moved to burger menu) - Clearer drop zone indication for dropping layers inside - New document and open buttons on Home Screen now expand additional options by default (without needing to swipe down) to make them more easily discoverable - Fixed spurious future version error under certain circumstances - Update for HEIF importer - Export Panel UI fixes - Pen tool tweaks and fixes - Tweaks to fix some spurious behaviour on interaction with Apple Autocorrect - Fixed hang that could occur composing vertical centre aligned text - OpenType handling does not respect lookup flags such as IgnoreMarks - Resource Manager updates - Fixed various issues involving handling of placed document files - Fixed crash on Replace Image - Fixes for Drag Drop of Stock images - Command Controller positioning improvements - Fixes for Display Scale Zoomed - Many and various Layers Panel updates and fixes - Status bar layout / clipping fixes - Document grid fixes - Context menu fixes - Fixed assigning shortcuts from a keyboard cover - Unable to open Guide or Grid settings after dismissing by tapping the canvas - Fixed XMP sidecar import - Fixed exclusion blend mode in 16bit RGB - Fixed outline later effect - RAW loading speed improvements - Assorted assets panel fixes - Assorted other fixes - Localisation updates

  3. Thanks, It sounds like the M1 Mac Air has some font installed which is crashing Affinity on load (we enumerate all fonts on load). I would recommend installing 1.10.4 on your main machine - that should fix the tiling problems for you and the font crash should not happen (because the font which is crashing Affinity is not installed there - otherwise 1.10.3 would have crashed in the same place). A
  4. Hi, The bad tiling is / was expected in 1.10.3 (it was the reason for the 1.10.4 release). Your crashes from 1.10.4 are font related - but nothing has changed for fonts between the two versions. Are you running them both on the same machine / user account? A

The benchmark version is once again set to 1920. - Improve performance when manipulating the selected layer immediately after loading a document. - Significant performance improvements in low-memory situations, reducing use of the swap file. - Panorama stitching performance improvements. - Significant performance improvements for documents which contain flattened, opaque layers (usually the result of merge visible). - Render EXIF exposure time as decimal if above 1. - Fixed F-number always showing as "f/0" for Leica M-series cameras (and others). - Fixed issue whereby LUTs would incorrectly report "Identity" as the description. - Fixed potential crash when quitting with layers still on the clipboard. - Fixed performance issues with CMYK documents when GPU acceleration is enabled. - Assorted small fixes. - Localisation improvements.
  15. Florida, Is the image you are trying to export to PNG very large? You mention 9000x9000.. I wonder if there is some integer overflow issue here. Exporting is not done on the main thread, so beach balling implies either a.) It's not export related, which is unlikely as your stack is plainly exporting, or b.) We are somehow exporting on the main thread! Could you provide the full stack dump? Cheers, A
