I have just installed Publisher Beta V 1.8.0.502.  When I try to use the Designer and Photo personas the link does not work and I get the attached message.

Designer and Photo are V 1.7.3 from the app store. I have tried uninstalling and re-installing post Publisher install but that doesn't help. 

Both apps link perfectly with the V 1.7.3 release version of Publisher so I can work with that fine for now.

I remember in the past that linking between beta and release versions didn't always work. So is this something I should expect until a new release version of Publisher is available or do I have a problem?

Thanks for any help.

Publisher sees only the same versions;

1.8. pub beta only will see 1.8. beta designer/photo

The release version will only see the same versions too

So better install the 1.8 betas of designer/photo to make use of the studiolink

Now you have really got me puzzled. I attach an extract from the mail that came this morning with the Publisher beta 8 installer.

Aha mac version,sorry missed that,don't know if there are betas for designer and photo,probably not.
But only same versions open through studiolink,so you're not doing anything wrong,just have to wait for 1.8 betas on mac though

Stupid me, I forgot to give machine specs.

I had guessed that it was probably a case of waiting for compatible versions. I just hoped that I might be wrong ...... ;)

Thanks Haakoo for your very swift replies.

No,my fault,you posted in the mac section and I just responded assuming the betas would be available for mac too.

Studio Link only works in the betas when the equivalent-version betas of Photo and/or Designer are installed.  That has been a general principle all along.  As those betas are not yet available for 1.8 on the Mac, you will need to wait for them, yes.

Thanks. That's very clear now. I am basically a Photo user. Publisher is useful to me presently for just one single long term project. My interest in the Publisher Beta was just that - interest ......... and simple curiosity. So I can quite happily carry on with 1.7.3 for my project and update when the time comes.

Thanks for your help and clarification.
