Status: Beta
Purpose: Fixes and updates
Requirements: Licensed Affinity Designer 2 (registered to an Affinity ID account)
Mac App Store: Not Submitted
Download: Here


We are pleased to announce that the first Affinity Designer 2 Customer Beta is now available from the link above.

This beta is an update to the 2.0.0 version recently released to all customers and will form the basis of our first patch. We recommend that you use this beta in preference to the release version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below.

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.
