How can I stop APhoto v1 "New Version Available" popup?


Recommended Posts

Are you running 1.10.6 (the current version) or 1.10.5 (the most recent prior version) or something older?

If you're not on 1.10.6, perhaps you should install it? That would stop the reminders.

I have a piece of masking tape covering that part of the screen.

Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 12.7.2 
Affinity Designer 2.3.1 | Affinity Photo 2.3.1 | Affinity Publisher 2.3.1 | Beta versions as they appear.

I have never mastered color management, period, so I cannot help with that.

The linked update info will tell you.
EDIT: just noticed, your message window doesn't offer the link I get presented on mac.

Thus the link: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/175192-affinity-suite-1106-1107-on-ios-updates-on-all-platforms/

I have set the update check to "Never" … and don't get the inviting pop-ups*.

[ *which enables me to use the screen space under the masking tape exclusively to cover the typical Affinity error messages when saving documents. 😎 ]

That's a Mac-only option.

Yes, it fixes a few critical bugs that causes the app to crash

Crashing means lost work

You are strongly advised to install it before you encounter one of those crashes

To save time I am currently using an automated AI to reply to some posts on this forum. If any of "my" posts are wrong or appear to be total b*ll*cks they are the ones generated by the AI. If correct they were probably mine. I apologise for any mistakes made by my AI - I'm sure it will improve with time.

1.10.5.1342 is what I am running. Is there a compeling reason to load 1.10.6?

"Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo and Affinity Publisher (on macOS, Windows, and iOS) had all recently been affected by recent operating system releases such as the launch of macOS Ventura, iOS 16 and Windows 10 and 11 updates. We have mitigated some of these in the 1.10.6 patches of all applications on all platforms. The changes fix/avoid the problems introduced by operating system changes thus returning earlier functionality.

If you are using Windows 10 or 11, macOS Ventura (13.x) or iOS 16 then we recommend installing these updates. Other supported operating systems can install the update without issue, but they have no specific advantages/fixes over 1.10.5 for your OS."
