  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 | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | 1.8.0.2 | Affinity Photo | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | 1.8.0.163 | Affinity Publisher | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | 1.8.0.531 | 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 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.
  2. I'm just playing with a few lightning brushes, the grouping of layers, layer effects and the radial blur. Metal activated (as usual)
  3. Hi, on starting any of the affinity apps they crash and will not open. I have deleted the apps and reinstalled. No difference. I have deleted the container files. No difference. I have given the apps all full disk access. No difference. And each time I restarted. The error reports are attached. Thanks, Peter Affinity Photo [582] crash file ProcessAffinity Designer [763]
  4. We are pleased to announce an update for the MacOS release of Affinity Photo, version 1.7.3 Changes in this build The changes in Affinity Photo for MacOS 1.7.3 over the recent release Affinity Photo 1.7.2 are as follows: New Features: Optimised for [Catalina] Sidecar. Fixes Fix for masked adjustment groups drawing incorrectly. Fix for problems importing .ABR brushes. Fix for occasional PSD import crash. PDF Export: "Allow advanced features" checkbox was missing. Miscellaneous text fixes and improvements. Layered TIFF import improved (when it has text layers). Fixes for stability issues that have been logged with us. Help updates. Localization Tweaks Earlier changes and fixes in 1.7.x since 1.6 (including the new 1.7 features) are listed in some detail in this earlier update announcement. This thread is for commenting on this announcement. Please do not post bugs or problems that you find when using this version of the software in this thread, instead make a new thread in the Photo Bugs on MacOS section and questions about usage go in the Desktop Questions forum. UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers) The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in application menu, Affinity Photo > About). If you’ve purchased from the Mac App Store— updates are done automatically next time you run your software after it is available in the Mac App Store. If this does not happen for you, open the Mac App Store app and go to the Updates page and then Store > Reload page or press CMD+R. This should hopefully force the update to show. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world which can mean it may take up to 72 hours for your update to be available. If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the software it will check for updates and offer to download and install any available update, or in the application main menu there is an option Check for Updates. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "download" button in there. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Photo for macOS) can be downloaded from this link (that installer is NOT for Mac app store purchases and needs a product key).
  5. Under macOS 10.15 Catalina (and, iirc) under 10.14 Mojave, the macOS Desktop sorts Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo files under “Other” when using Stacks — rather than under “Images”, where it puts .png, .jpg, .ai, & .psd files. Is this something that needs to be addressed within the apps? I can’t find anything that suggests a user-editable way to update this.
  6. Hi, Wacom taps or clicks don't work on the macros panel. They work for everything else. I've uploaded a video to show the issue. I can use my Intuos Pro with all the usual panels however when it comes to clicking on a macro, nothing happens and I need to resort to using my mouse. Thanks, Wayne no-wacom-with-captions.mp4.mov
  7. Hello Affinity Team, I think the node selection tool could need some improvements for selecting multiple nodes and nodes along a path. See at my attached video for a use case. I've expanded a stroke and now want to delete the inner shape to make it solid. As of Designer v1.7.3 I have to either select all nodes by hand or use the lasso selection tool (drag + ⌥). With complex shapes this can be quite tricky! And it would be much faster to select all nodes along a path with e.g. ⌘-clicking on a node. This also includes the problem that it overlaps with the scrolling when keep holding the option-key. I was just accidentally finding out that you can release the option-key to work around this. Inspiration: Adobe Illustrator does a great job here. When selecting one node and deleting it all of the missing nodes connected to that shape will be selected after this. Alternatively Illustrator also allows to select whole objects in one group of shapes. See here (at 5:14): Screen Recording.mp4
  8. I was editing a photo with Affinity Photo on macOS Catalina 10.15.1 and I wanted to preview it with the macOS Preview app, however when I tried to open macOS showed me an error message: (External update error 1) and I could not preview the file UNTIL I closed it on Affinity Photo. I am new to Affinity products and I come from Adobe, I don't remember this happening with Photoshop or Illustrator, is there a way to disable this behavior so I can open files while I'm editing them with Affinity Photo or Designer?
  9. Sometimes Affinity will stop showing results when searching for a topic within Affinity's help on macOS. This issue is caused by Apple's Help Viewer cache not being correctly indexed. To clear the Help Viewer's cache, run the following command in Terminal: killall helpd; rm -rf ~/Library/Caches/com.apple.help*; rm -rf ~/Library/Preferences/com.apple.help* Once you have ran the above command, please reboot your machine. When you next open the help within Affinity please allow some time for the Help Indexer to reindex our help.
  10. Affinity Publisher 1.7.3 on Mac OS 10.14.6 crashes, when changing document layout from facing pages to single. I have two master pages, A and B -> B is using A as master. Document has one page, with content, also outside document area. Publisher crashes everytime ticking Facing pages.
  11. I've been trying to recreate my character sheet for the Marvel Super Heroes RPG using publisher. On Windows 10, it causes a BSOD on save. On my Mac Pro (mid-2010) running macOS Mojave, it will cause a beachball of death after about ten to twenty minutes of use. At which point I have to power off the system and continue on the next boot. Rinse and repeat until finished. This is totally unacceptable for a pro product.
  12. I've been having an issue where I export a paragraph of text into SVG (without converting it to curves but relying on the system fonts) and some characters render differently in the browser (tested on both on the latest desktop firefox and the latest android samsung browser) as seen in the image below: On closer inspection it seems that the SVG adds certain tags to certain characters, isolating them - without an apparent reason however. it is easy to reproduce: create a new document use the type text tool type "Other All" as text (using Arial font) (for some reason the issue appears if there is another word before the word All! Other tested strings that produce the fluff are "A All B" and the "Unlock All Features" string) export to SVG The SVG should have isolated the Al characters into an unnecessary <tspan> element: <g id="Artboard11" serif:id="Artboard1"> <text x="209.036px" y="520.05px" style="font-family:'ArialMT', 'Arial', sans-serif;font-size:36px;">Other <tspan x="307.087px 331.099px " y="520.05px 520.05px ">Al</tspan>l</text> </g>
  13. Hi, this is the third time that one of my Publisher documents gets corrupted while saving. This happened to me twice a few month ago when I opened a document from an external Thunderbolt disk and saved it back to the external Thunderbolt disk. I moved the document to my computer and didn't see this error again until today. The linked photos and illustrations are still on the external disk because they would not fit on my computers hard drive. I pressed cmd-s to save and I saw the first error window pop up. After pushing OK Affinity hangs with "saving". After a force quit and trying to reload the document I see the second error pop up. I wished such loading errors (while saving) would be handled more gracefully. -Martin
  14. We are pleased to announce an update for the macOS release of Affinity Publisher, version 1.7.3 Changes in this build The changes in Affinity Publisher for macOS 1.7.3 (made since the last release Affinity Publisher 1.7.2) are as follows: Text Handling Pasting text could replace unselected text under certain circumstances. Text frames wrapping around other text frames only use z-order if both have wrap. Fix for Text on a Path handle snapping / jumping. (Win) Character page dropdowns not working when using select tool. Print and Export (Mac) Fix for crash printing CMYK documents with Embedded RGB documents. (Mac) PDF Export: Allow advanced features checkbox was missing. General Fix for masked adjustment groups drawing incorrectly. Fixed odd behaviour with transform panel adjusting size of sheared objects. (Win) Fix for failures when installed to folder with a non-ANSI path. Fixed failure to import .ABR brushes. Fixes for stability issues that have been logged with us.

  15. After upgrading my Macbook and transferring all my files to the new computer via a Time Machine backup. Both Affinity Designer and Photo both come up with a “not responding” message. The splash screen appears then both programs just hang. No other programs including Adobe Photoshop or illustrator are behaving the same. They all open as expected. I have tried a few ideas suggested online like clearing the mac cache and finding preference files but nothing has worked. I am using a new 16” Macbook Pro running Catalina if this helps. Thanks in advance.

  17. Hello together, no matter what I do - Affinity Designer no longer assigns text to a form. I draw a circular shape, click on text, move the mouse on the shape border until it changes to the special icon, click, write and have text in normal line form. The circle no longer displays green and red triangles. What am I doing wrong or where is the bug?
  18. I am having consistent problems with affinity designer crashing. it crashes when i load and save files. I have attached a screenshot of the error messages.

  19. Hello, Affinity Photo consistently crashes when zooming in. (command +). Very frustrating. Cannot complete my projects. Anyone have similar issues? Help? Running v1.7.3 on macOS. Late 2015 iMac Mojave Thank you.
  20. Hello, I am new to affinity, I have a macbook pro 2012, 2.9hz, 8g Ram, with mac os 10.15.1 catalina. I did a lot of panorama with lightroom, and try to do so with affinity. Must of my pictures are in RAW format, Affinity work well to do the preview, but when I ask to create the panorama, it is very long, and crash everything. Do I need to change affinity setting due the size format ? Please anyone help me, I had maybe 6 panorama waiting. You can see a exemple of my previous picture with lightroom.
  21. In my former InDesign work, I used a “no break” character GREP-style on most texts so I don't have hanging words.Publisher doesn't have such features, however, it does have a regular search&replace allowing to apply a style to matched texts. “That's almost GREP-styling,” — I thought. So, here's the bug. Reproduction I've made a “no break” character style. It adds a “no break” option to a text, nothing else; very simple. Then, I do a regex search equivalent to this (actually with a longer word list and in Russian) and apply this “no break” style to all matches: \<(?i:(a |the )) The rule finds whole words with the following (regular) space symbol. With short words like articles/prepositions/pronouns, it's a perfectly valid rule for finding spaces that shouldn't be broken. What happens When selected text has “no break” style, text goes outside the column: What should happen instead Text should stay in the column (I had to insert non-breaking spaces and clear styles): Affinity Publisher 1.7.2 release version on latest macOS 10.14 release.
  22. Hello world, My last week's Bug is not yet answered upon, today I stumbled accross an even weirder behaviour which I captured on Video. AP 1.7.1 duplicated a large chunk of text at the very bottomn of my text frames and reflows it into the next frame if I create one. This is reproducible on frames where it appears, and no changing the text / editing / re-formatting that i do removes this problem. The original and duplicated text are in symc, If I change it it changes in both frames … Please help – text management should be more relilable in an Publisher … Thanks, --Thomas Bildschirmvideo aufnehmen 2019-08-15 um 18.18.26.mov

  24. Not sure if this is a bug (didn't happen with my previous version), but Photo now crashes when I drag and drop images from Google onto the application icon in the dock.
