  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 | | Affinity Photo | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | | Affinity Publisher | Windows 7, 8.1, 10 | | 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 forumsends 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, i am interested in buying the new 1.7 version. As far as i understood what the forums say, i can update to 1.8, 1.9 for free but not to the 2.0. I am new, so I don't know if there are a limit of updates or there is a sequence or something. For example, if I start with the 1.9, i'll get the major release which is the 2.0 and up to 4 minor releases (2.1, 2.2, 2.3, 2.4), 5 updates in total. So my questions are: How long does a minor update take to release? Is there any limit of how many updates I can receive? What will happen until 1.9 if I start with 1.7?
  3. I purchased Affinity Designer in Jan 2017 via Mac App Store. It is at version 1.6.1 on my Mac. I am unable to find how to update it to the latest version. For example, if i open App Store and find Affinity Designer in App Store, it simply says OPEN, there does not appear to be the option to update it. If i click on the UPDATES menu item in App Store, it says all my apps are up-to-date. I have contacted Apple Support and they said if App Store is not giving me the option to update the app, then i should contact Affinity Designer App Support. Which is what i'm trying to do here! Thanks!!
  4. Hey there, I have some suggestions to add to the next update of affinity designer. Since i used to use there tools on Illustrator and there isn't no workaround to get the same effects...Here is the suggestions to add to the next update. Tools: image tracing distort warp text Thank you very much.
  5. According to the Affinity Store, "when you launch your product, you’ll be prompted to download the latest update if available. On clicking Download you will be directed to a web page that will offer you the latest Windows release for your Affinity product." I've had Affinity Designer since December 2017 and have not been prompted to download any updates. The version I currently have is 1.65.123. Can somebody tell me is there been updates since then? (I'm getting numerous crashes so I'm thinking that it has to do with not having the latest version.) If so, is there a link to get the updates? TIA
  6. When I try to update Designer to version 6.5 I get a popup that says I cannot update. It says, "The contents of the file "affinity-designer' cannot be extracted with this program." Changing the settings in my Mac security preferences doesn't help.
  7. Hey there, Just wondering how often we would be expecting product updates while in the Beta phase of Affinity Publisher?? Thanks - Grunta
  8. it was working smooth on my iPad Pro when it was running on ios 10 however as I have updated to ios 11.3 whenever now I am opening the app it only loads a blank screen on the start up and crashes after a while automatically. How do I fix it?
  9. How is RAW support for new camera models handled? Is this part of general updates/upgrades or a separate (more frequent?) process? For example, if I purchase Affinity Photo 1.6, will I receive updates for new RAW file formats indefinitely? Until 2.0? Thanks, couldn't find this info. elsewhere.
  10. Hello, Just wondering what is happening with AP development. It seems to have really slowed down? Is there a major version update in the works? Regards, Frank
  11. Hi, I use Affinity Photo iPad, how can get the "Luminance brush"?
  12. Hello, I am a few minutes a member of this forum and I have downloaded Affinity version in de Win Store. My question is, how can I see if their is an possible update? Albertus, The Netherlands.
  13. Hi there, I'm sure this question has come up before, and if so please forgive me for asking again as I could not find the answer when searching. Are there any plans to include an auto-update feature in the standalone applications (Windows versions) bought directly from Serif/Affinity? It's not a major issue, but it is a bit of a pest to have to log in to our account, download the latest version, then install it manually. Thanks Guy
  14. I bought two sets of licences for two of my desktop computers for Affinity Photo and Affinity Designer . However, one has been automatically upgraded to version 1.61 and the other 1.62. There is no direct link to have either of the programs manually check to see if there are recent revisions to the programmes.

  16. Love this program. Use it Daily. Sometimes it goes SO slow that it is unworkable. Sometimes my little beach ball just spins eternally and I have force quit. Sometimes I restart my whole computer. Are their any updates, hacks, or tricks to work wit this dreadful phenomenon? I don't know how to download or install updates even if they exist. Help. Ideas? Thanks
  17. Hi there, I bought and installed Affinity Photo (For Windows) last week. A couple of days later I logged back in and was advised there is a newer version so I clicked on it to download and install. When it said in order to complete the installation, it had to restart the laptop which I authorised it to. but since then I keep on getting an error "An Unhandled Exception has occurred and the application cannot continue. The Crash Reporter will be displayed after the application exits. Reference....". I provided the details of the error and reference details when it prompted for it but I haven't received any replies of when it will be fixed. It's coming to a week now. My expereicne with Affinity hasn't been great. please advise how I can get this issue sorted out. Thanks Nick
  18. I have been informed today (Nov 21st) (through the program itself) about a new update (1.6.1) which I have downloaded and installed. Everything fine... Why dont I see any information about this in the forum (or have I missed something?), specially to see which changes have been made in this new version... Carca
  19. What is the official update policy for Photo and Designer?
  20. I know you guys are working hard to get the bugs ironed out for the 1.6, but is there any chance of releasing smaller updates?? I love the software, but its starting to be a hinderance at work...i mean it crashes 70% of the time when moving artboards around(mostly i've noticed when moving them far apart or very fast to be precise). It's these smaller silly little things which i think many users are having an issue with. Sketch for example does a great job of releasing updates n fixes often.
  21. Hi, I bought affinity photo on July 8th, and everytime I open it up it shows affinity photo 1.5 I was wondering if I already have this? And if not how do I download it? Thanks in advance
  22. Thank you all for the hard work. Here is a short list of things I'd like to see. I have mentioned a couple before, a few are new but other may have already mentioned them. Node alignment Line erase and trim to line (different that knife or node split tools) Draw shapes on selected axis (ellipses, etc) Eye dropper to copy paste all or some properties of object Callouts (great for parts lists). Perhaps this can be part of the arrowhead feature. Auto numbering would be an awesome bonus. An ai/PS export that works. ;-)
  23. I've just installed the latest upgrade of Affinity Photo onto a laptop that doesn't have a CD drive. At first it refused because it couldn't find E drive. I didn't need it as I was installing from a download. I did get it to install, by plugging in an external DVD drive, a trick I learned from earlier Serif software. Could you please adjust the updates so that the CD drive is unnecessary?
  24. Hello, Would you please clarify whether there will be any free updates after purchasing the version 1.5, or not? If yes for how long you will offer the free updates? Thanks,
  25. Greetings, Since I now have a microphone, I have been thinking maybe I can start video series where I go in-depth of the features within Affinity Design, Patch Notese, Updates, what's new etc. that way it will also allow me to learn more about the software, and also someone else can get information of what the software is, and what you can do with it. What do you guys think? I don't think I have seen any youtubers (Designers / Artists ) doing in-depth reviews of the softwares on a constant basis, definitely will take a lot of time, but I think its well worth it, since you're helping peoples along the way. Or do you feel just the Vimeo of Affinity is sufficient in scenario like this? Feel free to share your thoughts.
