Installing Affinity version 1 software on a new computer


Recommended Posts

If one downloads version 1 Affinity programs from the Serif website to install on a new computer, does one get the release version for which one bought a licence or does one get the latest release version that was produced please?

For the avoidance of doubt, I mean the various release versions of version 1, I am not suggesting that I get the recently released version 2 for free.

Your licence is for version 1, not version 1.x, so you are free to choose any version up to and including 1.10.6. Available Publisher downloads go back as far as 1.7.1, and available Photo and Designer downloads go all the way back to 1.6.5.

Thank you.

In fact the downloads from my account are all version 1.10.6, so the system has automatically supplied me with the latest versions. I don't think I had update to those versions on the now broken Lenovo computer.

Ah, I need to update the footer on my posts regarding the computer I am using.

I have now installed all three of the version 1 Affinity programs.

There seems to be a bit of a problem.

For example, if I use File New in Publisher, the panel seems to be clipped at the bottom of the page so that the Create button does not show.

This new computer, a 14 inch HP laptop, arrived with Windows 11S, but I S-unlocked it so as to install Serif Affinity software and High-Logic FontCreator, Scanahand and ViewHex.

The Windows 11 footer bar stays on screen while the Affinity programs are running. I do not remember whether that happened with Windows 10.

Do you have any ideas on what is causing the clipping please?

Sorry, William, I lost track of this thread! Please try Lee’s suggestion.

I presume that the “footer bar” to which you refer is commonly known as the “taskbar”. You can set it to autohide on Windows 10 (so that it slides out of view until you mouse over the bottom edge of the screen); I imagine the same applies to Windows 11.
