been waiting for this for ages. Just opened a pdf file (great!) attempted to cut and paste copy from one page to a new document (only a simple business card) and it just hangs!

Thanks for all the fixes. Just wondering if the Assets CMYK fix appearing twice in the OP is an oversight or if one of them was supposed to be something else.

Thank you, oversight I'm afraid, no bargain bonus extra fix!

Text Tool
- Symbols indicating overflowing text added to text frames

Can you explain that one a bit? We already had the "eye" icon for overflowing text on text frames. Does this refer to something else that has changed?

[Note: Dave Harris has corrected my initial post and his makes more sense describing coming improved functionality]

The overflow was only shown on the last of the series of linked frames (the one that actually overflowed). I now the first and last frame indicates if there is a problem with the last frame.

Is there an alternative download?

There should be by tomorrow, when the new build ( available here 1.7.0.128 download ) will replace the official signup download here, and will also be put on autoupdate for all users. 

Those affinity.store servers have a higher capacity.

I've just downloaded the new iOS 12 installers for my iPhone X and iPad Pro – but I won't be doing the actual installs until later on.  I'm much more excited about this new beta!  :1_grinning:  Thanks!

In this version only the first and last frames show, and only if the overflow is hidden, and only if Show Text Flow is on. It should change more in the next beta.

---ACE--- 

Just tried out the latest build - imported table info from numbers and pasted into pub table pre-setup with specific cell column sizes and it doesn't change to equal column sizes, keeps my formatting --- ACE 

Layer shortcuts are here for moving forward/back --- TOP STUFF although I can't seem to use that same shortcuts I've assigned in Designer and Photo - no worries I'll change em to the set I now have assigned to pub

---NOT ACE---

It says above in the Print / Export fix list  "- All formats now export with optional bleed" so tried to print/export as pdf a booklet with bleed = still no bleed - looks like all the other formats bleed just not Booklet and Book

Still no fix for rasterise bug that crops to page instead of cropping to bleed  ------

well done anyway for cracking on with all the other stuff - seems more stable

impossible to download, stops after a couple of minutes :(

The first time I tried the download, it stalled after a few minutes & would not resume. I eventually canceled the attempt, deleted the partial download, & tried again from a fresh start. It then downloaded quickly. I think it was a combination of canceling & deleting on my part plus a lot of luck in hitting the server when it was not overloaded on the second try that did it.

Maybe that will work for you too....

General Tools and Menus
- Added Layer > Arrange, Alignment, Geometry, Transform, Insertion
- Fixed toolbar customisation - Distribute, Operations on Mac

to me it means a lot because i've been sharing and asking for this days ago in a thread somewhere in this great forum.

Also please, would you enlighten me by telling more about the below ?

Tables
- Icons added to table row / column extenders to advertise their purpose

i hope resource manager now show alert sign on missing links (not the pop-up message in the software); if not then, next beta release (if there is one planned) should see that enabled.

Above all, thank you for this great work and ... the s3 servers works well now !

Blessing!

This is about the arrows at the bottom and to the right indicating that you can add, delete colours, rows.
