Can't buy version 1 (Publisher) , but can't use version 2 -what to do?


Recommended Posts

I'm considering buying Affinity Publisher (Mac version), but there's a problem: I've just read (in one of the FAQs) that version 1 is no longer available for purchase, but when I read the tech specs for version 2 I see that there's a minimum of MacOS 10.15 Catalina , and I'm still using 10.13 (High Sierra).

Does this mean I've "missed the boat" since I didn't purchase it back when MacOS 10.13 was still supported, or is there another option to get hold of a version of Publisher which does indeed work with MacOS 10.13?
(Luckily, I've already got Affinity Photo and Designer which both work on my system).

The Affinity V1 applications are no longer available for purchase, so you will not be able to purchase Publisher V1 from Apple nor from Serif.

Do I have any other option, or have I missed my opportunity completely?
If someone from Serif Europe Ltd. is reading: can exceptions be made so that I can stil buy a copy of Affinity Publisher 1.x?

Without going into details, there are several reasons why I'm sticking to MacOS 10.13 High Sierra, so upgrading to 10.15 or beyond isn't an option for me.

Yes it is an option, but you choose not to exercise that option.

Given that, I think you're correct, you missed your opportunity.

They have answered that several times: no.

II’m still using 10.13 (High Sierra).

Apple’s last support date for this operating system released on 25 September 2017 ended in November 2020.
Buy a new Mac, or take the opportunity to upgrade to more perennial hardware.

6 cœurs, 12 processus - Windows 11 pro - 4K - DirectX 12 - Suite universelle Affinity (Affinity  Publisher, Affinity Designer, Affinity Photo).

Mais je vous le demande, peut-on imaginer une police sans sérifs ?
