Thanks again. Haven't installed it yet, but I remember vaguely that I got an information window that there is a newer beta, when you open the older beta. Same for the latest beta of AD.

Hi Mark and Patrick,

just tried to download this beta, but this is (nearly) impossible because of the very slow download speed from your (Amazon?) Server.

This was never a problem before. Always done in few minutes..

I have tried several Browsers and made some others downloads/updates today (DXO, Adobe) without no issues..

Same problem here, for whatever reason.

Today it worked with the download of Affinity-Photo, it takes about 3 minutes.
The download from Designer took about 1,5 hours, very strange.

strange, still not working here... the download is very slow

The download for AP took almost 70 minutes today from start time 11:37 😞, for AD too..
That went before always in < 1 minute
Something is wrong with this server at Amazon.
I have just downloaded Affinity Photo for comparison, directly from the Affinity Store. The time for this was just under a minute. 

Kind Regards

More likely it's an issue with your ISP, than Amazon. The files for the beta are hosted in the USA, so speeds may not be great to Germany.

For the retail builds, we use CloudFront to push the files to data centres around the world, so they are fast no matter where in the world you are (i.e. you can't really compare the retail download speed with the beta download speed). One day we'd like to put the betas onto CloudFront, but I don't know when.

Seemed to download fast, but maybe that was not in the same time interval as others - think I was very early after the email.

Today I was trying to use it, which seems generally smooth as ever, but one bug occurred:

-- I wanted to create a document from a png on the clipboard
- I made a mistake first -- I had copied a text after, as part of getting through that 'registration' tryout. 
- thus when I went to create in Photo, it  refused as not the right type the clipboard -- correct
- then I copied the original png again
- this time, Photo didn't even offer the  Create from Clipboard menu item -- it was greyed out

- I created a blank document, pasted the png in. Fine enough, just extra borders
- so, I tried again to Create from Clipboard. With no changes, the  png still on the clipboard, 
this time the item wasn't greyed out, and using it did the right thing, created a doc just the size of the png.

Hope that's clear, and as always, quite enjoying what you persons do, all  of it :)

Clive
