Affinity Publisher Customer Beta -

Recommended Posts

  • Staff

Status: Beta
Purpose: Fixes and Improvements
Requirements: Purchased Affinity Publisher
Windows 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.


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 - Fixed instance where clipped items were being rasterised unnecessarily
Fixed issue where 'Next Style' could fail to work when entering text

Nice!....This is much faster!:)
I just tested it by loading some of the Camouflage drawing series (Embedded and Linked Versions). Used to have to wait (have a sleep!)..not now!:)

1 issue... I noticed...With Camouflage I (simple spread with 3 AD flies)..The Alert box [missing files/resources] for missing files pops up seemingly before the connected files have properly loaded..

Très heureux de voir que la gestion des gros fichiers est plus limpide à manipuler.

Quelques suggestions :

Ce serait bien de pouvoir agrandir les vignettes dans le panneau Contenu. Les images sont vraiment petites par rapport à Indesign.

Si le panneau pouvaient se rétracter sur le côté comme sur Indesign, plus simple lorsqu'on travaille sur un ordinateur portable.

Ce qui manque vraiment à Publisher, ce sont les notes de bas de pages. C'est frustrant pour un graphiste de charger un livre au format IDML et de perdre toutes les notes.

Encore (je sais je suis exigeant :)😞 si l'on pouvait réorganiser les Styles de texte simplement en les déplaçant...

En tous les cas merci pour votre travail et ce logiciel qui va se bonifier avec le temps  !
