  • No longer install .NET framework 4.7.1, but it will still be required to fix issues with Surface Pen (users need to manually install it)

  • Fixed popup closing when dragging an export token

Hi Mark, I have small tiny request - can you (in future maybe) put version name in every software-related filename? Like affinity-designer-customer-beta-


Hi, the idea is that you always use the latest version of the beta software, in order to help us identify and fix bugs, and improve the quality of the product.

Thank you Mark, seems to be the same problem.

Followed Gnobelix solution, after uninstalling the driver the beta works fine. Reinstalled the driver the beta crashes again. When I disable the HID pen in the device manager the beta doesn't crash even with the Gaomon driver installed.

Just figured out that AP, AD and even Photoshop don't work with the tablet any longer.


Edit: I'm such an idiot: pen battery was down, that's why the pen didn't work in regular versions of AP and AD! So following Gnobelix' solution works fine with my system, disabling the HID pen helps and the beta doesn't crash any longer! Thank you very much for your help Mark
