Affinity Designer Customer Beta 1.9.0 (1.9.10)

Recommended Posts

Status: Beta

Purpose: Features, Improvements, Fixes

Requirements: Purchased Affinity Designer for iPad From App Store

App Store:  Not submitted

Download link: Join the TestFlight

 

Hello,

We are pleased to announce the immediate availability of the Affinity Designer Beta 1.9.0 for iPad.

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 significantly different from the 1.8.6 version available for purchase - we strongly recommend that you do not use this beta for real work as data could be lost and the files you save are not guaranteed to open in previous / future versions of Affinity Designer.

Thanks again for your continued support!

Matt

- Fixed sporadic crash with Pencil Tool (yay!) and hopefully generally improved product stability
- Fix for artefacts occasionally noticed in the noise pattern while editing objects with noise on a linear fill
- Added option for Designer to be able to show/hide overflow text - particularly useful for text on a path
- Fix for terrible rendering problems - particularly affected cropped items with layer effects applied

- Select Same / Select Object functionality. I'm happy to consider requests for extra options, so if you have a favourite, just say...

- Allowed snapping to the bounds of the pixel selection.

The preference for present on external display didn’t work. I can’t mirror the screen even when the toggle is disabled. I use external display regularly so thanks for adding this feature. I sent beta feedback about this issue on test flight but not sure if it was sent. (There’s no notification or something that it was sent). I also hope for more keyboard shortcut in the future.

Hi bizwud,

Thanks for letting us know - I've just been trying this myself and I believe I've replicated the issue. Can you try disconnecting from your display and having the option disabled and then load up a document. Once the document has loaded can you then connect to your display (ideally from Control Centre, by dragging down from the top right) - this should acknowledge the checkbox state and mirror the iPad's screen. However if you switch document it will go back to ignoring the state.

This has now been passed on to development.
