Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

Status: Beta
Purpose: Fixes and Improvements
Requirements: Purchased Affinity Publisher
Windows Store: Not Submitted
Download: Download
Auto-update: Available


We are pleased to announce that Affinity Publisher Customer Beta 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 an incremental update from the 1.9.1 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.



Fixed crash at startup due to bad OpenCL drivers (really this time)

Document / Spread setup
Document size presets create incorrectly sized pages if the Document DPI doesn't match the preset DPI
Business card templates shouldn't be facing page

Import / Export / Resources
Fixed being unable to download full resolution OpenAsset images
Improved Brush and Asset categories alphabetical sort options
Fixed crash choosing Add Pages from File with 'After Last Page' selected
Replacing a scaled Picture Frame image wasn't maintaining placement
Convert to Picture Frame does not use default saved settings, cf Convert to Text Frame
Renaming then re-linking a cropped PDF or AF document scales the un-cropped document
Missing Content Status for placed PDFs
Placed PDF Page Box / Maximum Content calculated incorrectly
Add Pages from File could handle z-order badly when moving page content
Renamed Export Area 'With background' option to avoid confusion. Fixed other Export UI inconsistencies

Added Preferences option to normalise text breaks on copy to clipboard
Unwanted auto-correct capitalisation caused by exclamation and question marks
Inline text objects should not have Text Wrap options enabled
Text Style Editor > Next level should use "[Same Style]" rather than "[No Style]"
Active text Selection on pasteboard not always drawn correctly
Decrement paragraph level would sometimes find the wrong previous style
Fixed potential hang moving pinned nodes
If spaces are overset, squeeze them up to keep the caret within the frame
Performance improvements generating text wrap shapes in complex cases
Table Format Panel previews always rendered as RGB
Hyperlinks to Anchors can point to incorrect Anchors if Anchor name has been duplicated
Paragraph Decoration has no "inherit state" when used as "based on" style
Alignment context toolbar options for table cells don't work
Not enough space to show Text Style shortcut on Windows

Fixed Assets and Symbols transforming when dragged onto resized Artboards or Groups
Fixed Live filters that have any position controls being broken on saving and re-opening the document
Guides added via Guides Manager are now clamped to Spread size
Master Page Guides could be applied incorrectly when a Master is applied to only one page of a facing page Spread
Transform panel ignores ruler origin in line mode
Performance improvements when Preflight panel showing lots of errors / warnings

Print auto-rotate not always triggered when other paper properties changed
Stroke width being printed incorrectly on rotated objects on certain printers
Some Printer Drivers (Canon) return inconsistent status codes while printing
Fixed printing issues when the Print Spooler service has been stopped

Updated the beta, Still a linked pdf, placed in a picture frame and rescaled in AFP is behaving awkward when relinking or updating the file after editing the pdf in another program (incorrect scale and position).. totally unworkable..

Please try to fix this, we cannot use the program as it is right now.

Is that for stock photos from Unsplash ? if so this is a known issue and the crash will be addressed in the next beta
