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

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

Fixes & Improvements:

  • Optimised for new ProMotion 120hz screen, M1 Pro and M1 Max
  • Architecture changes when Metal compute acceleration is enabled to better support M1 Pro and M1 Max
  • Fixed document with 'Save History' failing to save after promoting a Group to a Layer.
  • Fixed PSD import of Linear Burn blend mode being imported as Multiply.
  • Fixed crash on Monterey editing embedded documents
  • Screen and UI corruption (in 1.10.3) on some desktops.
  • Assorted small fixes.
  • Help & localisation improvements.

The improvements in 1.10 since 1.9 are listed in some detail in this 1.10.0 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).

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 auto-update 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.
