Affinity Designer: how to get updates?

Recommended Posts

I'm wondering how you guys deliver updates to the software. I've heard there are beta releases containing features I'd like to get sooner rather than later (like the glyphs panel) but I don't see anything in Designer regarding checking for updates. Is that a manual process or does the software check 'behind the screens' and offer the update automatically?

Hi Bluebug,

 

On the Mac and iPad the App Store will notify you on any available updates to the app and on Windows the app will check for any updates on startup and if one is available will offer a download option of the new version.

All beta versions are now "customer betas," meaning you must have purchased & installed the corresponding retail product (Designer or Photo for Mac or Windows) to run them. They run independently of the retail version & are considered to be not suitable for production use. The betas are available from the Affinity Beta Support sub-forums. The first post in each sub-forum has a link for the download.
