Affinity Designer Customer Beta (1.5.2 - Beta 4)

91 posts in this topic

Status: Beta

Purpose: Stability & Critical fixes

Requirements: Purchased Affinity Designer

Mac App Store: Not Submitted

Download: 1.5.2 Beta 4 Here

 

This beta is intended to fix any critical issues found in the current App Store version and should be considered to be more stable than the App Store product.

 

To use this beta, simply download the file from the link given above and double-click on the file to open the installer. Follow the instructions to install the beta version. The beta sits alongside the Mac App Store version and will not interfere with it.

 

Fixes:

  • Enabled 32bit documents and associated studio UI (including OCIO)
  • Resizing documents should scale guides and slices as appropriate so they appear to be in the correct location
  • Fix for Mountain Lion in the new Export Persona (panels disappear completely and the app becomes unstable)
  • EPS export improvements with thin lines and mitre joins
  • Fixes for Text Styles (editing 'No Style' and clicking in certain areas of the style preview)
  • OpenType tweaks
  • Print speed improvements
  • Fix for being able to measure between siblings inside groups and containers, also being able to measure immediate children of a container and between selected object and its ancestors. When space is tight, the measurements now appear out-of-line rather than scaling too small to be usable.
  • Improved error reporting when opening PSD files
  • Fix for PDF import of Japanese fonts
  • Shortcut for soft-return is now shift+return
  • Fix for issues seen when bleeds are unequal on different sides
  • Fix for issues seen when trying to output selected areas to PDF and accidentally generating multi-page PDFs
  • Automatic slice rectangle calculations should not include the layer effect inflation from the parents
  • Improved output-path validation for Export Persona
  • Added 32bit PSD export
  • Added EXR/HDR export
  • Initial support for new Touch Bar on MacBook Pro
  • Added Polygonal and Magnetic lasso selection modes
  • Fix for Fonts list jiggling around at times when moving up/down in the list
  • Fix for copying groups within Symbols causing 'the beginning of the end'
  • Had a baby daughter so wasn't around much
  • Miscellaneous other fixes and improvements

I encourage kids to go ahead and play on my lawn. I mean, how else can I make sure the death-traps work?
