Thank you for the update! Everything went smooth sailing, from update to registering my account and activating it, however I thought I had an account already.
Watching these video demo's now on Designer's contour tools and navigation controls had me saying: YES with exclamation marks.
I've not followed the Beta programs, so everything came to me as a nice surprise.

Select Same is here!

Resource manager sounds useful.

Yes, but it's just catch-up on what other apps have had for decades. My question is why the Resource Manager is not a dockable window/palette since this is something I'd be using very frequently  in production (as I do in Illustrator/InDesign). I'm certainly glad linked image management exists (although I'm yet to test the implementation)

My guess: Look at how wide it is. It would totally disrupt the screen layout if it were docked. If you need it frequently, you can assign a keyboard shortcut to display it. And if you have a big enough monitor (or multiple monitors) maybe you can find some place to leave it floating where it's not in the way.

The interface could definitely be condensed to fit in a panel.  For a small fee I could knock out a mock-up for Serif within in few hours (and I'll design them a preferences interface for free, just to help keep my blood pressure under control...)

Great and awesome update. Thank you for this. Downloading, installation and registration went perfect for me. The app runs fast and stable and now i check out the new features. Also thanks for the links to the videos which explain the new features. Thumbs up 😀👍

Have a nice day.
Ich wünsche einen schönen Tag.

While i haven't tested most of the new stuff yet, the Login-Prompt and the Ressource-Manager already made me cry tears of joy!
This was needed very much. I've got sooooooo many different Folders on my OneDrive plastered with ressources. And it was a pain in the ass to manage it across devices. Especially on an iPad.

BUT:
Are there any plans to make the Ressource-Manager available for non-store Ressources?
I get that this will probably not come bc of store- and technical limitations.
But it would be a HUGE gamechanger to link all your other assets to your Affinity-ID and get it synced on all devices. Not just talking about the ones i made for myself. I am also talking about assets bought somewhere else, like on Frankentoon Studios.

Either way, keep up the great work!

There are but they are at an early (planning) stage.
