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

---

We are pleased to announce that Affinity Publisher Customer Beta 1.9.0.911 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 significant update from the 1.8 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 or future versions of Affinity Publisher.

Improvements and Fixes

  • General cosmetic improvements
  • Prevented manual insertion of objects into a Text Frame's list of pinned children via Layers, resulting in inconsistent document state
  • PDF Passthrough was getting rasterised if vector cropped
  • Exiting app with an unsaved document could cause instability

Please can users of this beta look at the My Account feature (top right of the main toolbar) even if you have already done so recently in another beta, as we are still making last minute changes

We have added the ability to link your Affinity app to your Affinity account through a new app registration process. This will have the advantages of you being able to stream any content you have purchased (or received for free from the Affinity store) directly to all your apps without having to manually install them. This is of particular use to customers who have more than one of our apps, or run our apps on different devices and operating systems as all your content will automatically be available across all of them.

If you register the beta app you will initially receive a free brush kit (the luminance brush kit) for testing purposes. This might be a kit you already have, but if you don’t you will get it for free. Over the next few weeks this will be expanded to include all of the store content you may already own.

 

There have been lots of behind the scene improvements and more of the purchasable and (historical) free claimable content is being added. PLEASE report anything you find using "My Account" IN THAT THREAD

It crashes every time I open a pre-beta document (via: right-click > open with > publisher beta)

sometimes it displays the "this is a non beta document, are you sure?" dialog, but then crashes.

 

edit: it also crashes when using the regular menu command "open"
