[NO ACTIVE BETA] Affinity Designer Customer Beta ( - Release Candidate)

Recommended Posts

Status: Release Candidate

Purpose: Features, Improvements, Fixes

Requirements: Purchased Affinity Designer

Mac App Store: Not Submitted

Download: Download

Auto-update: Not available



We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of Affinity Designer Beta for macOS.

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 1.8.2 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.

Many thanks!



Changes This Build

- Fix for alignment not being available with a single selection.
- Fix for collinear curve segments causing boolean operations to fail.
