  3. We are pleased to announce an update for the MacOS release of Affinity Photo, version 1.9.0 Changes in this build A highlights explanation can be found here: 5 things you should know about Affinity Photo 1.9 The detailed changes in Affinity Photo for MacOS 1.9.0 over the release build Affinity Photo for macOS 1.8.6 are as follows: New Features: Live liquify layers (learn more) Linked layers (learn more) Pattern layers (learn more) Stacking for astrophotography (see tutorials here) Divide blend mode (learn more) Path text added (learn more) Studio Presets for the UI layout to save your favourite workspace setups for different tasks, explained here Studio panel combinations (also learn more) Create brushes from current pixel selection (learn more) Linked images and Resource Manager (learn more) Use filters on masks Edit spare channels as layers Added per-layer antialiasing controls in the advanced blending menu Added export preview panel (for raster types) Support PDF passthrough to ensure perfect representation of original PDF when exporting, without the need to have embedded fonts installed Benchmarking option to measure speed of your device Content sync of store purchases (requires Sierra [or above] and registration) This feature is explained in more detail here Sync your Affinity Store resources with your Affinity 1.9 apps Fixes & Improvements: Improved “Serif Labs” RAW engine including native CR3 support Elliptical marquee automatically creates from centre Hierarchical view (learn more) Configurable margin guide colour Import multiple LUTS (learn more) Placed scale for all placed files, which allows scaling to be reset to 100% Snap to pixel selection bounds Added curves adjustment to the tone mapping persona Added JPEG-XR 101010 import support (useful for screen captures from Xbox, etc.) Added support for 12bit grayscale TIFF files Many TIFF file handling improvements Added “Duplicate spare channel” to right click menu Blend modes now work on “alpha only” layers (masks, adjustments, live filters, etc.) Gradient map adjustments now support global colours Filter effects now work properly with global colours The Curves adjustment now has numeric field controls for precise positioning Unable to use CMYK/LAB/GREY equations in a Live Procedural Texture Adjustments no longer auto apply when expanding a section of the adjustments panel Freehand Selection Tool (Polygonal): Fixed pressing backspace while drawing the selection path deletes the layer rather than the last node More filters now work on masks / adjustments / spare channels (Add Noise, Perlin Noise, etc.) LUT adjustments can be exported directly from the adjustments panel, and batch imported from files Having a large number of LUT presets will no longer make application startup slow Assistant options are now available from preferences (so there is no need to open a document to access them) many redraw issues addressed Various stability improvements Help and Localisation improvements 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).
  4. After opening Designer and using it for like 10 seconds or so, it simply closes. No error, nothing. This happens not every time but most of the time. I can't seem to find a solution or what is causing the issue. But this issue started appearing after the latest update. What would you need to investigate this issue? 87501147-3050-48c6-b07f-b9bf8746aa70.dmp

  14. We are pleased to announce an update for the iPad release of Affinity Designer, version 1.9.1 (note this 1.9.1 build calls itself 1.9.7 in the about box, but is nevertheless 1.9.1 for bug reporting purposes) Changes in this build The changes in Affinity Designer for iPad 1.9.1 (over the last release Affinity Designer for iPad 1.9.0) are as follows: Fixes & Improvements: Fix for copying and pasting symbols between documents causing a crash.

Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. If the automatic update does not happen for you, go to the iPad Store app and go to Updates. Once you’re there, tap near the top of the screen where it states 'Updates' and then hold, pull down and then release. This should manually refresh the updates page. However, don’t panic if the updates are not available for you yet—Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world and this can take up to 24 hours.

For the macOS release, in the application main menu there is an option "Check for Updates". Alternatively, 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. Updates are installed automatically (or manually by installing the new version over the old) Previous builds do not need uninstalling first. New installations of paid software downloaded from the Affinity Store requires a product key and email pair to use. Software downloaded from the Mac App Store, Microsoft Store and iPad store do not require a product key and are updated through the relevant store: 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. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. 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 Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show. If you’ve purchased from the Pad Store— Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them. If the automatic update does not happen for you, go to the iPad Store app and go to Updates. Once you’re there, tap near the top of the screen where it states 'Updates' and then hold, pull down and then release. This should manually refresh the updates page. However, don’t contact us if the updates are not available for you yet—Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world and this can take up to 24 hours. ---------- This thread is locked and will only be posted to by Serif Staff as the released versions change.

  18. A few days ago, I updated Affinity Publisher to version 1.9.0.932. After updating, I realized that (2) out of (6) documents with tables are no longer recognized by the software as containing tables. These are document which I need to update every few weeks and need to add rows to the tables with each update. I am now unable to add additional rows to the tables. The other (4) documents when opened, in the new version, still retain the tables. Can anyone give me some insight? I REALLY need these docs and need to be able to add rows. Thank you.

  22. As a very recent purchaser of an iPad and the Affinity iPad apps, reading this thread has left me a little confused! I have installed the latest version of Designer from the App Store; the splash screen shows it as being version 1.9.0, but the "Preferences/Settings" screen shows it to be 1.9.3. Which is "correct"? (Screenshot below). TIA. Jeff
  23. Ever since the new update, my pixel tool pen and drawing messes up frequently and is very slow even if the document size is small. My friend is also having similar bugs with crashing ever since the new 1.9.0 update came out. Anyone know what's going on?
  24. Hi, I have two of my three desktop Affinity apps purchased through the App Store and noticed the new version 1.9 updates had come out. Until now, updating wasn't a problem but this time around I keep getting the alert 'The iTunes Store is unable to process purchases at this time. Please try again later' when I press the 'update' buttons for both apps. I've had the problem since Saturday and still no change. I've tried hard connecting my Mac to my router and loging out of the App Store, all of which made no difference. Any ideas what might be the problem? The App Store status (https://www.apple.com/uk/support/systemstatus/) is showing its fine, when I check on the Apple.com website and I'm able to get into my iTunes account and see all the App Store Features, and payment details, so it has a connection, just can't update the Affinity apps. I'm running MacOS 10.10 which I thought might be the problem but from the App Store info pages, for your app, it says the OS is supported so I'm a bit stumped why I'm having issues. A live chat to Apple Support seems to have not helped either. They've just walked me through generic troubleshooting for checking I have a connection and other unrelated issues that relate to iOS and not MacOS apps. Please can you help as it's so annoying that such a simple issues is stopping me from downloading your fantastic apps. Thanks in advance for your help. Alec
  25.

Your Affinity iPad apps should update automatically next time you run them. However, you do need to be logged in with the same Apple ID you used to buy them.
