  1. 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
  2. Hello, For a long time no update on Affinity Photo Desktop (Mac) Is this app died???? Let me know to choose another solution....
  3. This post is designed to be an aid to knowing if you are using the latest version on your platform. The thread is now locked to if you "follow" it you will know then we release a new version on any platform. I will update/edit this post as new releases and betas are added. Product Name | Platform | Purchase Store | Version | Trial | ====================|==================|=================|================|=============| Affinity Designer | Windows 7, 8, 10 | Affinity Store | | | Affinity Designer | Windows 10 | Microsoft Store | | (as above) | Affinity Designer | MacOS 10.7-10.14 | Mac App Store | 1.6.1 | n/a | Affinity Designer | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | Affinity Store | (PK) | | Affinity Designer | iOS 11,12 | iPad Store | 1.6.4 | not posible | Affinity Photo | Windows 7, 8, 10 | Affinity Store | | | Affinity Photo | Windows 10 | Microsoft Store | | (as above) | Affinity Photo | MacOS 10.7-10.14 | Mac App Store | 1.6.7 | n/a | Affinity Photo | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | Affinity Store | (PK)| | Affinity Photo | iOS 11, 12 | iPad Store | 1.6.12 | not posible | Affinity Publisher | Windows 7, 8, 10 | Affinity Store | n/a | n/a | Affinity Publisher | Windows 10 | Microsoft Store | n/a | n/a | Affinity Publisher | MacOS 10.7-10.14 | Mac App Store | n/a | n/a | Affinity Publisher | MacOS 10.9-10.14 | Affinity Store | n/a | n/a | Release notes Affinity Designer Windows 1.6.5 (previous 1.6.x releases: 1.6.4, 1.6.3, 1.6.2, 1.6.1, 1.6.0 ) Affinity Designer Mac OS 1.6.1 (& 1.6.5 PK) (previous 1.6.x releases: 1.6.0 ) Affinity Photo Windows 1.6.5 (previous 1.6.x releases: 1.6.4, 1.6.3, 1.6.2, 1.6.1, 1.6.0 ) Affinity Photo Mac OS 1.6.7 (& 1.6.11 PK) (previous 1.6.x releases: 1.6.6 ) Affinity Photo iOS 1.6.12, (inc 11, 10 & 9) (previous 1.6.x releases: 1.6.8, 1.6.7, 1.6.5, 1.6.4, 1.6.3, 1.6.2, 1.6.1 ) Affinity Designer iOS 1.6.4 & 3 (previous 1.6.x releases 1.6.2, 1.6.1, 1.6.0 ) If you are looking for the equivalent beta build numbers please refer to these threads Affinity Range Mac Beta Release Notifications Affinity Range Windows Beta Release Notifications Affinity Version Numbering Windows build numbers and Mac builds are independent. The third number increases each time a public release is made, so Windows and Mac builds have simply been released a different number of times (sometimes to fix OS specific problems) Affinity Designer Windows 1.6 has had 6 public versions 1.6.0, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3 (very briefly), 1.6.4 & 1.6.5 Affinity Designer Mac 1.6 has had 3 public versions 1.6.0, 1.6.1 (and 1.6.2 PK - 1.6.5 PK on the Affinity Store for corp/direct sales and redemption code customers) Affinity Photo Windows 1.6 has had 5 public versions 1.6.0, 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3 (very briefly), 1.6.4 & 1.6.5 Affinity Photo Mac 1.6 has had 3 public versions 1.6.6, 1.6.7 (and 1.6.8 PK - 1.6.11 PK on the Affinity Store for corp/direct sales and redemption code customers) Affinity Designer for iPad has had 4 public releases 1.6.0, 1.6.1 1.6.2, 1.6.3 & 1.6.4, but is based on the latest released codebase (technically ahead of desktop 1.6 releases). Affinity Photo for iPad has had 10 public releases 1.6.1, 1.6.2, 1.6.3, 1.6.4, 1.6.5, 1.6.7, 1.6.8, 1.6.9, 1.6.10, 1.6.11 & 1.6.12 (similar codebase to 1.6.4 iPad Designer) [Please note that Microsoft Store presents the build number slightly differently so can also appear as a store update as 10605.123.0.0] Windows Photo 1.6.5 is approximately the same codebase as Mac Photo 1.6.7. They were released quite closely and share 97% the same features and shared fixes, and obviously each also has OS specific fixes. [see release notes section above] Windows Designer 1.6.5 is approximately the same codebase as Mac Designer 1.6.1. They were released quite closely and share 97% the same features and shared fixes, and obviously each also has OS specific fixes. [see release notes section above] So Windows and Mac version numbers differing simply means the number of versions released are different. Installation of Software and Updates Paid software downloaded from the Affinity Store requires a product key and email pair to use. New versions are notified within the application when it is first run and updates are done manually by installing the new version over the old. (Only the Mac versions from the Affinity Store needs manually uninstalling first, all other versions will install over the top of the old one) Software downloaded from the Mac App Store, Microsoft Store and iPad store do not require a key and are updated through the relevant store. This is not always simultaneous around the world and updates are often rolled progressively by the store out so if you cannot see an update once announced here, don't worry or make a support ticket, just check back as they will normally appear for all users within 24 hours of first release.
  4. New problem in the latest build, OS X 10.13.6. If you make a change to an external picture that is already linked in the document, it sometimes (not always) will garner an invalid file type as APUB notifies you that a change was made to the external file. However, the change is actually made in the document. See attached screen shots.
  5. I'm on Windows 10. After installation of the .284 update my system was rebooted without warning ! Which is not the usual procedure for software installation:/updates.
  6. Hi I seriously need help, UI is in Low Res/ Blurry I have been trying posting this problem before but with no answer and now I am really dependant of this software, already tried to uninstall and install, update but no solution. It's for the Publisher Beta but I guess one fix covers all. 1.7 on OSX Please Help.
  7. Hello, Just a quick question..I purchased my copy of Affinity Designer for Windows from Affinity store in February of 2018. I'm curious how long we receive updates. Do we receive lifetime updates, specific time-frame or version? Thanks.
  8. I have been trying to update to the latest version of Publisher 1.7.0 but with no luck. It just does nothing. i have also tried uninstalling and downloading this version again it does nothing. Does not install. Been fine up to now. Ideas?
  9. I used the previous version of affinity without any error on m windows 10 system. Now I wanted to use it again and get an invation to download the latest version. The setup starts, but there is no window opening. A few seconds later the icon in in the taskbar disapperas and nothing else happens. I tryed to deinstall the old version, download the file again and to restart my pc, but the setup wont run.
  10. Adding a "Update" button so the embedded document updates. I use Photo the most, because I can work both with vectors and rastered images and use all the pixel editing tools, also Photo has Live Filters. But, when I want to mount everything in artboards in Designer, and I embed my assets, they don't auto-update, or at least there is no update button. Having to click on Replace Document, find the document, click ok, in order to update changes is not practical. Auto-update would be even better but it's optional. Thank you.
  11. Hi, I'm new to this, so bear with me. I recently updated Affinity Photo, all went well or so I thought. When I went to use the Cloning tool nothing happens. I Alt clicked as normal but it isn't picking anything up to clone, any ideas, please. As far as I know, the other tools are working OK. Regards Emar
  12. Hi, The title says it all. Please add your installation files to the Chocolatey package manager for Windows . So that I can further optimize and automate my software update processes. Affinity Photo and Designer are one of the last tools on my computer that need to be updated manually. Best regards
  13. i cant open my affinity publisher beta, i download lates version but cant open, some body help me?
  14. Affinity Photo and Designer updates aren't available on Microsoft Store (compared to the downloadable version). When will Serif publish the updated version to Microsoft Store? For example, the difference in Affinity Photo version Microsoft Store: Serif Store: I understand the difference is in the build number. But I also understand that there are stability improvements in this new build. Keen to install the latest version of the product.

    Do we have an ETA on the update for iPad that resolves the issue using the frequency separation tool? Affinity Photo for iPad is my only source for post processing images. This feature does not work on the iPad Pro 12.9 2018 model. Thanks! F17BA1E8-C498-4163-A877-AC20E65CF659.MP4

  20. Hi guys ! :) I am a IT tech from a State compagny in Quebec city,Canada. Some of our customers recetly bought Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo and we have to check it with some approval rules that our Ministery set.
