Awesome news! :) After ditching my Adobe Design Suite membership last year, it is time to throw away my recent design tool (Sketch from Bohemian Coding) and choose Affinity Designer & Photo as the one and only primary professional web design tools.

I updated Affinity Photo the other day on the App Store site.

 

That site says 1.4 was downloaded.

 

However when I open the Affinity program it says 1.3.5.

 

Did it download or not?

 

Thanks for your help.

Beautiful new images on the sites..  :wub:

 

Just a tiny glitch at the designer page when it comes to columns height.

Another 'problem' on the Affinity site.

 

When you're viewing a single blog post, you can't navigate to the blog index page via the menu on the top right side.

 

Give it a try. Visit this link and after that you click on BLOG in the main menu.

Yep, annoying, at the moment it takes a click on the Affinity logo first. We're working on it, WordPress has limits!

Nonononono, no. I’m not going to let this excuse count. That’s only if you don’t know how to use it to its fullest potential. But I can understand that given that you people are probably professional software developers but not professional web developers.

 

Just guessing but to me that looks like a simple JavaScript issue that when the blog item is the “current page”, clicking on it will prevent the item from reloading the page. The only thing that’s needed it a modification of that particular part of the script. That doesn’t even have anything to do with Wordpress itself.

 

Edit: There, I’m doing the work for you. It’s in /static/js/script.min.js – the script is minified so I can’t give a specific line number but with a simple search for “data-active-page” you’ll find the offending part:

l.on("click",function(t){e(this).is("[data-active-page]")&&(u.close(),t.preventDefault())})

The simplest solution would be to just remove the t.preventDefault() function. This will cause the link to reload the current page on click but that’s a very minor annoyance, if any, in my opinion. It will make the blog link work properly, though.

Well, while I like that you're engaged with this issue, I don't think it's fair to say that our people do not include professional web developers. The Affinity web developers felt similarly. 

 

A fix was not deemed urgent before as there are workarounds and also muuuch bigger changes on the way, but since you raised it the guys are rolling out a fix. It's a change in the WordPress theme, not the suggested edit to the javascript that would have had consequences across the website.

So...out of curiosity...is Designer supposed to be $24.99 (USD) right now, or is that an error? Photo is listed at it's normal price of $49.99 (USD).

 

Seems intentional... that's the price listed on the web site as well.  Photo has since gone up, however.

Just tried to update from Affinity Photo 1.4 to 1.4.1 via the App Store, but no can do.

 

When I click on the [uPDATE] button, the animation which indicates a download starts - then I get the error:

 

"Affinity Photo failed to download, Use the Purchases page to try again."

 

Anybody know what the "Purchases page" is, and how to find it?

Hi garywright and legendofzelda,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

To access the Purchases page, open App Store application and click in the Purchased icon on top. You will have access to a list of all your purchased apps from which you can install apps presssing the corresponding install button on the right. If it still fails to install, drag Affinity Photo (or Designer) from your Applications folder to the trash and try to install it again as described,
