Hello Team

Download was fine, good speed and no interruption at all.
install was fine too.

Now the only way to test if it is better than previous to start a project and see if there issues or not.
Thanks for your hard work.

Never be the Same Again !

@Mark Ingram

Thanks for this build, the issue i had with assets on previous build is gone and i was able to compose 2 designs and things went okay except I had the impression of few lags and some latency.
Nothing to worry too much about but it appeared to me that exporting is 2 or 3 times much slower than saving the same file which never happened to me before.
I hope there is an explanation for that or simply next build will fix it.

Also, 3D and bevel + Emboss works much better and seem to not be to strong on applying to objects (ie: texts)
... Please provide us with a fully featured 3D studio in Designer so we can design much much better including compositions of many nature.

Thanks for your great job on this build.

The Current Beta of Designer, 1.9.1.971 starts up and shows me that there is a new Beta avaiable, but where is ist to find? A click on Download brings me to the Beta Forum, but there is no Thread with a new Beta to see....

Have a nice day.

Thanks, it is not meant to be any announcement in 1.9.1.971 on auto-update, No more recent beta exists, sorry

Hi Paul,

Thanks - I can reproduce that here - it looks like the Vector Brush is wanting a single colour rather than a gradient, so it keeps trying to select the white for some reason. If you select the Gradient Tool once you've drawn the object you should be able to apply the gradient without the flickering. I'll get it passed on over.
