Recommended Posts

Status: Beta
Purpose: Fixes / Improvements
Requirements: Purchased Affinity Publisher
Mac App Store: Not Submitted
Download: Download
Auto-update: Not 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.

Due to current and anticipated changes to help with performance issues this version is now 1.10.0 and replaces the previous 1.9.4 beta. All previous changes from 1.9.4 have been rolled into this beta.

As such, we strongly recommend that you do not use this beta for real work as data could be lost and the files you save are not guaranteed to open in previous / future versions of Affinity Designer. 


Fixes and Updates

Fixed crash composing text under certain circumstances
IDML Import - Fixed issue where text could disappear with certain files
PDF Import - Fixed crash for specific file where the importer was creating many nested empty layers unnecessarily
Vector Export - Simplify gradient fills that have been created with many stops that could crash when exporting
Vector Export - Fixed instance where clipped items were being rasterised unnecessarily
Fixed issue where 'Next Style' could fail to work when entering text
Fixed possible crash when auto-flowing text into master based text frames 
Character Panel - Kerning and Tracking scroll increments are inconsistent

I've noticed that all of my tables that were well aligned in previous versions are no longer so in this version. Instead, tables stick up out of the text frame quite a bit. My workaround has been to align the table to the bottom of the text frame, but that only works if I don't want something else there.

Thanks again for all your hard work!
