So after the commercial version comes out, how long do you think it will take for another award to come out? My guess is, not long.

You never know they might be on stage next week!

I just downloaded it and I noticed that it keeps crashing out.

serge, I thought I should warn you about this: sharing your Mac serial number on the web for everyone else to see can be a bit of a security liability… :|

Not very likely, as that will probably be a strictly iPhone-focused event, but it would be cool, yep. Maybe on next year's WWDC, to receive yet another award? ;)

Installation failed for me.

Ran it again immediately and 2nd time succeeded.

Have emailed both logs.

This seems to have become the norm in all Affinity apps since v1.6.5.123 or the beta just before that one. :(

Sometimes it takes 4 or 5 attempts to get the installer to work!

Think you might want to post this in the Windows section. This is the mac portion and there is no real installer. Just open up a .dmg file and drag and drop the application into the application folder and you are done.

After many hours of fiddling my file, I discovered that my document is only working with blurb specification requirements if I leave the bleed settings to zero as shown in the screen grab attached.

@rhyswoos: If you have set the bleed as required, it may still be difficult to detect the grey line outside your document boundaries, depending on the background color. Put any coloured object that can contrast with the lines to make it more obvious.

Okay, it took me a while to work this one out too! For anyone who is struggling, you have to set a bleed for the document/page and then check ‘Show Bleed’ in the View Menu. (I think what I found confusing is that it is listed in bug fixes under the heading of ’Document / Page Management‘, where it says ‘now visible in the main view’ as if you don‘t have to turn anything on).

Stuck Character Palette

I’m still getting the character palette stuck when I scroll down to the bottom (where the ‘optical alignment’ settings are). When I scroll to the bottom it’s then impossible to scroll back up again, and this affects new documents too (it‘s only resolved by quitting Publisher and relaunching).

Yeah... quirky, I find that if I move the mouse out of the optical alignment panel I can then scroll

I'm not able to open this version of the app.  For the previous beta version, I uninstalled by dragging to the trash bin.  I emptied the trash bin and then downloaded and reinstalled this beta version.  Was able to install OK by dragging to the application folder but when I went to open, the Verifying Affinity Publisher Beta bar gets to roughly 60% and then stalls.  Tried uninstalling by dragging to the trash.  Emptied trash, restarted and re-installed OK.  Try to open app and get the same 'Verifying' box with the same 60% progress bar.

Thanks I worked it out in the end, I assumed bleed would display by default, and didn't notice it needed to be turned on in the view

The sample brochure doesn't seem to be available to me? I tried to download but nothing happens, I'm curious to see what affinity are able to achieve in a brochure
