We are pleased to announce an update for the Windows release of Affinity Designer, version 1.10.4 (replacing 1.10.3)

(Note: 1.10.2 was an iPad only release)
The detailed changes in Affinity Designer for Windows 1.10.4 (over the last release Affinity Designer for Windows 1.10.1) are as follows:

Fixes & Improvements:

  • Fixed Refine Selection as New Layer with Mask preventing rendering of Artboards
  • Fixed Brush Hardness changing when swapping tools
  • Fixed document with 'Save History' failing to save after promoting a Group to a Layer
  • Fixed vector import potentially importing with the wrong document size
  • Fixed PSD import of Linear Burn blend mode being imported as Multiply
  • Fixed some occasionally fonts failing to be recognized at startup
  • Fixed Borderless printing having a border
  • Fixed 'Preset Manager' > 'Shape Presets' being unable to click
  • Fixed hang on My Account page 
  • Fixed crash when closing the application
  • Fixed potential crash on launch when a sync'd asset references an unavailable font
  • Fixed 'Convert to Curves' crash with underlined text, emoji etc
  • Fixed Vector import (SVG etc) can be created at incorrect size
  • Screen and UI corruption (in 1.10.3) on some desktops
  • App hanging on shutdown due to font cache problem
  • Help & localisation improvements.

The improvements in 1.10 over 1.9 are listed in some detail in this 1.10.0 Designer Windows 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 Help > About Affinity Designer).

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 Designer 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.

The 1.10.3 desktop release builds have now been replaced with 1.10.4 release builds to fix a few issues that have come to light shortly after release. This announcement post has been repurposed to include these minor changes. On the Affinity Store 1.10.4 should be available now (from your account and the link in each announcement, and on autoupdate very soon). 1.10.4 builds will be rolling out on the Mac App Store and Microsoft store over the next 24-48 hours as normal.

Working better now! Previously when I'd select an artboard with "insert inside selection" selected, and then drag and drop an image from file explorer, this would simply sit on top of any artboards on that file, rather than "clipping" into the selected artboard (with "insert inside selection" selected).

It's so much better in this aspect as I work with edited files from Affinity Photo a lot.

Thank you for this update!
