unfortunately the previous version of APub doesn't indicate, that there is a new one available...

We will add it to the auto-update mechanism tomorrow. This is more of a soft launch here on the forums. Thanks for the heads up though

Thanks so much for the update guys!

I'll never be able to express how happy I am that you've obtained beta status for Affinity Publisher!

My prayers for a successor to Page Plus have been answered!

Thanks for the update. Very much a few tweaks I see. 

Studio still a sub-menu
Placing multiple images - can't undo without losing image
No way to place images as a grid
An image placed into a frame still resets back to original size when you drag the rectangle frame size. 
I'm sure there's a few others.

The new Show bleed option in the View menu and the new "Edit all bleed values together" option in the Document Setup are working flawlessly :27_sunglasses:
Thank you guys, can't wait for the production release of Affinity Publisher !

PS: It will be super nice to have those options as well in Affinity Designer :x

Dear, 

regarding the bleed area, I initially thought that it did not show up.

Why ?

In my case, with a black background, a tiny white line shapes the external bleed rectangle. A red line would provide a better contrast, as grid lines are white as well.

But it works well, thank you

Regards, Philippe

Dear, 

regarding the next beta version, I would suggest to add say five languages to test spelling and cursor behaviour:

- a language with accents French or German or Smnish or Nordic
- Hebrew, Arabic, Chinese and Japanese to test cursor behaviour and text tools

Regards, Philippe

I agree the bleed line should be thicker. Also, when using the transform panel & many others if you tab to a new box the blue line round the edge is microscopic. But the new beta overall is very good.

Affinity Publisher Public Beta - 1.7.0.58 installed well, but crashed upon opening Recent and using regular Open. The message displayed is:

1015961309_APubcrashmessage.png.0197ab647d5744d1bfd8d6b72e80fce2.png

Running Windows 10 Professional on a i7 PC with 16GB RAM. After this message program crashed. Same crash after restart.

Uninstalled it with WISE Uninstaller (Safe Uninstall) and re-installed previous Beta which runs without crashing.
