Affinity Publisher Customer Beta -

Recommended Posts

Status: Beta
Purpose: Stability and General Testing
Requirements: Purchased Affinity Publisher
Mac App Store: Not submitted
Download: Download
Auto-update: Not Available



We are pleased to announce that Affinity Publisher Customer Beta is now available as a download from the link above.

If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app, it’s worth noting that the beta will install as a separate app - alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry.

This beta is an incremental update to the 1.8.1 version recently released to all customers (though it installs parallel to the release). We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below.


StudioLink: We have updated StudioLink to ignore the 'patch' version when checking compatibility. StudioLink should be enabled if any corresponding version 1.8 product is available.



  • Fix for bleed not available in Photo Persona
  • New document panel - terminology and UI tweaks
  • New document panel - saves settings between uses.
