Affinity Designer for macOS - 1.9.3


Recommended Posts

  • Moderators

We are pleased to announce an update for the MacOS release of Affinity Designer, to version 1.9.3

The detailed changes in Affinity Designer for MacOS 1.9.3 over the release build Affinity Designer for macOS 1.9.2 are as follows:

Fixes & Improvements:

  • Resource Manager - memory leak fixed
  • Fixed a performance regression
  • Memory leak fixes in the Layer panel
  • Help and Localisation improvements

The new features in 1.9 are listed in some detail in this 1.9.0 Designer macOS update announcement 

 

UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers)

The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in application menu, Affinity Designer > About).

If you’ve purchased from the Mac App Store— updates are done automatically next time you run your software after it is available in the Mac App Store. If this does not happen for you, open the Mac App Store app and go to the Updates page and then Store > Reload page or press CMD+R. This should hopefully force the update to show. Apple sometimes phase roll outs around the world which can mean it may take up to 72 hours for your update to be available.

If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the software it will check for updates and offer to download and install any available update, or in the application main menu there is an option Check for Updates. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "Download" button in there. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Designer for macOS) can be downloaded from this link (that installer is NOT for Mac App Store purchases and needs a product key).

OK, good.  But:

you still have not fixed:

(a) on a machine with two screens the document window appears on the second screen first (separated mode)

(b) if the document and font units are set to millimetres, the font sizes are not whole numbers in the pop-up menu (see screen capture)

(c) the selected choice in preferences is white text on highlight colour, which in my case is white on yellow; the text colour should be the "opposite" colour of the highlight instead of white, or else it should be settable.

(d) it is still necessary to tap the tab key twice to go to the next associated value in the Transform box (X to Y or W to H)

I reported these issues years ago.

There are many bugs that have not been fixed. The release notes above indicate the ones that have been fixed. You shouldn't expect any others.

Well, yes, obviously release notes only mention fixed things, that's exactly why I repeated the ones I do want to get fixed but that apparently got no attention.

But please see Patrick's posts above. This topic is not for commenting on other bugs.

If they have been reported previously, Serif have told us that they prefer that we make additional comments, if needed, in the thread in the Bugs forum where the bug was originally reported.

If they have not been previously reported as a Bug, they should be reported in the appropriate Bugs forum.
