Affinity Designer Customer Beta (

Recommended Posts

  • Moderators


Status: Beta

Purpose: Features, Improvements, Fixes

Requirements: Purchased Affinity Designer

Mac App Store: Not Submitted

Download: Download


Auto-update: Not available



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 1.9.0 version recently released to all customers (although it still installs parallel to the released version, as described above). We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below.

Thanks again for your continued support!

Many thanks!




Changes Since 1.9.0

- Fixed printing crash when the document has multiple artboards.
- Fixed some icons being very small.

- Fixed incorrect cursor issues.
- Fixed mirroring objects to transform individually based on tool settings.
Fixed scaled text frame increasing text size when grouped.
Fixed PDF passthrough failing to work on multi-page documents.
- Improved performance of snapping by restricting inner bound snapping to objects with no more than two curves (ie, single holes).
- Fixed crash loading large TGA files.
- Fixed monochromatic iconography option not working.
- Fixed alignment issues with pixel tool.
- Fixed marquee selection issues on Apple Silicon devices.
- Fixed loading of 16bit LAB TIFF.
- Assorted other small fixes.

Fixed incorrect cursor issues.

Does that mean, that "File > Place" will now also change to the right placement indicating cursor or not here?
