* Release 1.6.2 changes

Affinity Designer for Windows build 1.6.2 has the same fixlist over 1.6.0 as the above list for 1.6.1, but it also includes one other minor change. With minor impact, it has not been given it's own release notes or put on auto-update notification for build 1.6.1.

 

- Social Media Links on Welcome dialog updated. Affinity Social links are now @AffinityBySerif and so the software links have been updated to reflect this change.

The way you update depends on the operating system and where you got the software.

If you bought it from the Mac app store then that is where you can find the updates.

If you have the Windows version bought from the Affinity Store, then simply Run the purchased version of the software and if you need to update you will be prompted to download it.

I will add to this announcement tomorrow, as the differences are aesthetic/minimal, but the version increases was a side effect of the Microsoft Store beta process and release

Essentially they have the same functionality but different social media links! That's why they aren't on auto update from 1.6.1
