We are pleased to announce an update for the Windows release of Affinity Publisher, version 1.10.0

The detailed changes in Affinity Publisher for Windows 1.10.0 over the release build Affinity Publisher for Windows 1.9.2 are as follows:

  • Improved performance with:
    • Heavily layered documents (faster rendering during panning and text reflow)
    • Editing speed with long stories
    • Placed images
    • Embedded documents
    • Low-memory conditions
    • Placed PDFs set to Passthrough
    • Documents containing placed documents (Resource Manager)
  • Smaller PDF export file sizes when multiple copies of the same passthrough PDFs are present.
  • Better output of placed PDFs set to Passthrough exported as PDF formats that do not support Passthrough.
  • Added support for most emoji 
  • Improved IME text editing for Japanese and Simplified Chinese languages.
  • Added ‘Limit Initial Zoom to 100%’ preferences option (Windows)
  • Implemented OpenType character variant samples and parameter names.
  • Fixed issues with documents that have large numbers of embedded documents failing to load
    (The maximum number of allowed open file handles was being exceeded leading to erroneous 'Future Version Error')
  • Import keyboard shortcuts from IDML files.
  • Resource Manager:
    • New Relink option for missing resources.
    • New File Type column.
    • EPS files can be linked.
  • Various stability improvements and assorted other fixes.
  • Help and localisation improvement.

 

UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers)

The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in Help > About Affinity Publisher).

If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the Affinity Store software it will check for updates and offer any available update. The latest update will install over the top of any earlier version, with no need to uninstall. 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 Publisher for Windows) can be downloaded from this link (that installer is NOT for Windows Store purchases and needs a product key).

If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show.

Thank you to the Affinity team and the active users of this forum for your work and for not letting go and constantly striving to improve. Thanks also for another free update (many were convinced there would be a paid version) which is especially good at this difficult time for all of us. 
Sorry for my English.

absolutely brilliant in terms of speed even with my lowly 4th gen i5 processor.  everything is much more slick and polished....

however, i'm still on the trial version.  

i purchased photo and designer ages ago, but sadly cannot move to publisher properly due to the lack of support for footnotes or endnotes.

once these features are added i will gladly hand over my hard earned cash.  until then its going to have to be Scribus as I have let my Adobe subscription go.

made the leap for now to Quark (albeit an older version for a better price).
