  1. 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 | Beta Ver. | ====================|====================|===========| Affinity Designer | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | 1.7.3.481 | Affinity Photo | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | 1.7.3.481 | Affinity Publisher | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | 1.7.3.475 | Please see the last post in this thread for links to posts announcing these beta builds. Those pinned posts have download links to the beta software. Windows 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 Windows Customer Beta build look for the top (pinned) post in each of these forums: Affinity Designer beta for Windows Affinity Photo beta for Windows 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 beta for Windows 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. We will update/edit this post as new Windows Beta releases are added by the developers, so the version numbers should always be right. We will also post to the bottom of the thread so the forum sends a notification to anyone who wants one 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 Windows beta updates and needs updating please PM me.
  2. Hi! There's a little glitch with the Blur Brush Tool in Photo beta 150 RC2: It does its job, but the live preview becomes transparent. But not always! I guess it depends on the type of file ... maybe Metal on.

  4. Hi, Each time I open an older file or one made with the stable release, instead of showing its name, the file is unamed and I need to go back to the original file to copy its name. I'd rather have "_Beta" append to the name or something else (since the apps keep the last folder path, and don't use the current file path, if I open a file by double-click, it's not always possible to overwrite the original file with a simple ctrl+S shortcut).
  5. all was fine from the beginning i installed publisher. then i updated to the last beta version and everything turned out fine, too! i was working on some projects with no problem. but since some days publisher crashes very often when i want to start the app. i was guessing a fontcache problem because every time the program was starting i saw the welcome window saying it's loading the fonts. but short time after that the app was crashing. i deleted the cache from time to time and sometimes it helped... but it didn't solve the problem at the end. 2 times i was putting away the prefs to start fresh- guess what! no deal! one week ago i updated to WIN10 1903. don't know whether this has anything to do with it. i put the last DMP files to this notice. c81cac41-9002-43ce-94f7-d5e591517e88-dump.dmp 46331f14-fe33-4de0-a512-6fae575f98a5.dmp
  6. Hi there, I'm using Affinity Publisher 1.7.1.404 and wanted to open a .afpub-file lastly edited with Affinity Publisher Public Beta 1.7.0.337. Unfortunately, Publisher keeps loading the file and eventually crashes without error notification. Opening with the beta isn't an option since the beta has expired. The file contains text, embedded and linked images. It would be great, if I was able to access the file, since there is some data in it, I would not want to recreate in the retail version. Of course, I know, that working with sensitive or important data in betas is at one's own risk. I just wanted to ask, if there is some knowledge regarding opening beta files in the retail version or getting the data in some other way. Thanks in advance, Valentin Edit: I was able to open the file with all its references and embedded contents with the current Customer Beta of Publisher version 1.7.2.442. I don't know what caused the retail version to crash since it correctly opened another beta-file (less complex and on another computer). I guess, basically beta-files and retail-files are compatible, but some reference or adjustment made the retail version crash. Whatever, for me, personally, this issue has been solved, before this post was approved by a moderator. Nevertheless, I wanted to post the workaround in here for anyone having similar problems with the retail version.
  7. I have a newsletter that I created with the beta version of Publisher which I would like to remake using the current non-beta release. The newsletter has a lot of styles, formatting and settings that would like to replicate in the new document but I worry that anything I bring over from the old document – imported styles, copy/pasted layers, etc. – could bring problems over to the nice fresh non-beta document and somehow break it. What is okay to do and what should I not do? At worst case, if I only have the beta document open and don’t copy anything from it – just to make it easier to note down various settings – could the new non-beta document be adversely affected in any way? Or should I ‘quarantine’ my old beta documents and never open them while I am working on non-beta documents?
  8. Dear Serif and the Affinity Photo dev team... THANK YOU SO MUCH! I fired up the Customer Beta that I keep installed along side my regular release of AP. Imagine my surprise when I checked the export options and saw .TGA as an export option! I'll be running around work tomorrow like a lunatic informing every single artist about this! Additionally, There's going to be more than a few of our tech supervisors that are going to be excited as well. I'm hoping studio management gets around to upgrading to Affinity Photo before the end of the week!
  9. I have wonder a lot why there’s no 1.72 beta version of Designer for Mac yet? Any specific reason, or, is 1.71.xx on Mac already good enough, without need to fix? As it is now, the Studio Link in Publisher beta 1.72.422 don’t load Designer Persona because it’s no beta version who not Hasn’t expired ...

  11. Had consistent crashes with Publisher 1.7.1 official release, so I downloaded and installed this 1.7.2.420 beta build release. Crashing still happens. Crashing occurs when creating new paragraph style within Text Style panel. Purposely did not undock the panels, but left them in their locations; still crashes. Dropping in the system crash report, as well as the document (two graphics, two text frames with text, two text frames with page number fields). One note, this is the same document as was used in the official release. Certainly, the program is bugging out, but perhaps the document itself is the culprit? Running MacOS X Mojave, 10.14.5, iMac (late 2013), 3.2 GHz intel core i5, 32 GB memory, Nvidia GEForce. Affinity Publisher Beta_2019-07-06-114526_iMacUp.crash Bios and Farewells.afpub
  12. Hi, Now I'll admit to being new to AP, coming from PS. But when I go to Liquify Persona, select the tool I want to use, nothing happens. Mac Pro Mid-2012 OS 10.12.6 3.2 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon 32 GB 1066 MHz DDR3 ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB Anyone else having this problem? I looked at the video tutorial for help and I'm selecting the correct layer. Thanks! UPDATE: Ok, now it's working! But when I use the freeze tool, it still grabs the area that I don't want to adjust. Is there a fix for this? I attached an image to show what I mean. Thanks again!
  13. Don't tell me that it's impossible to retrieve files and documents saved on the beta version, as the updates all did until the purchased version? If so is there any way to get access to the beta? Please help!
  14. Is there a smooth way of importing existing Publisher files developed under Beta to the new Published version please? Currently when I open a file developed under Beta the formatting is awry and the master pages don't come through ... Thanks
  15. Hi, I have downloaded and updated my Affinity publisher, however, when I open the software it's still advising me that there is an update. I have restarted my machine since the update and the same thing is happening. P.S looking forward to product launch. Thanks in advance. Clyall90
  16. This happened. Has anyone experienced this and what is the greyed out x for? It would be great to move these windows out of the way. Hey devs, are you working on this?
  17. I'm working on a large publishing file with 150 pages and a lot of graphics. It was going well but it seems that since recent program updates the file is crashing every few minutes. Not sure if it's got anything to do with the updates or some other reason. I'm using a Mac computer.
  18. Again I am told to download a beta already installed on my PC: why does it happen? Di nuovo mi viene detto di scaricare un beta già istallata sul mio pc: perché succede?
  19. Not sure if this is mentioned before by someone (couldn't find one on the forum): Using Publisher 1.7.0.376 beta and dragging the Pages-tab is veeeery slow and seems to take a looooot of power for some reason. So there is a huge delay in mouse-movement and the actual sizing of the width of the panel. Unfortunately the screen-recording isn't very hi-framerate, which normally is the case when recording with OBS here. So it looks like Publisher is really taking some performance away from the rest of the running software (like OBS here) just to scale this panel? veeeeery slow movement (even seems to hold the screenrecording from recording fluently): move-panel-delays.mp4
  20. Hi there, I tried using Publisher to search for whole sentences in a long document (168 pages). Is that even possible? Seems to me it dosen't work (Beta 337) Best regards, Puck
  21. Hi all, I've purchased Affinity Designer and Photo on macOS AppStore and I'm very glad of these products. I see there are newer versions on web, also beta of 2.0. I'm wondering how can I install them if I purchased both applications on AppStore and I don't have a license code. Thanks Mircha
  22. Using 1.7.0.312 Beta on Windows 10 Every time I open it I get a message saying New Beta available. There is a new version of the Beta. Please download the latest version from the first thread of our beta forum. Then two buttons, OK and Download. Clicking Download takes me to Download Version 1.7.0 When I try that, I’m told I already have the latest version Clicking OK and going to the beta forum, I can’t find where to download anything later than what I’ve got. I guess the dialog box is just out of date.
  23. Small request: Could y'all possibly add a "B" or something signifying it is the beta version in your taskbar icons when it is the beta release running? I have the beta in my taskbar so I can use it when I want to try with a certain project, and as of now on the Window version, the icons are different. Obviously that won't be the case anymore when the current version is a RC/Release version, as both icons will be the same. One small change that has been very helpful.
  24. In a bulleted list, if there's only one character left and I delete it, the bullet point sometimes also is deleted.
  25. Hello team, I miss in Publisher the possibility of an overprint preview, as well as the possibility to set individual colors or objects to "overprint" or "cut out" (hope this is the right term, maybe "omit" is better?). I did not find a satisfying answer in the forum. Are these features available and I just can't find them? Regards, Puck
