Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

 

Status: Release Candidate

Purpose: Features, Improvements, Fixes

Requirements: Purchased Affinity Designer

Mac App Store: Submitted

Download: Download

 

Auto-update: Not available

 

Hello,

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!

Matt

The Welcome/About window for this beta just installed on my iMac says it is version 1.9.1.3, not 1.9.1.2 - RC1. Should I be concerned about that?

I noticed that the new Publisher beta has a fix for updating links via the resource manager changing the scale. I have noticed the same thing happening in Designer (a source document was renamed, and after relinking it, the scale of the elements was changed). Will there be a fix for this in Designer too?

It is in this build, just not in the change-notes

@lenogre and anyone else tempted to do this

Please please please do not list bugs (that have already been reported) that are not fixed in beta announcement fix list. It achieves nothing except making those following the thread spend time reading it. We are not claiming all reported bugs are fixed, so it's only worth mentioning when you find a new bug or when something we claim is fixed turns out not to be

when will u release update ? 

When it’s ready! (Probably quite soon, since the ‘RC’ in ‘RC1’ means ‘Release Candidate’, indicating that it should become the release version if no major regressions are found.)
