Affinity Publisher Public Beta - 1.7.0.167

Recommended Posts

Note: On WIndows 10 I had to drag the Preview Mode icon from the Customise Toolbar dialog to get it (after resetting the user defaults); it wasn't on the toolbar by default (as the text in the first post seems to suggest). Don't know if this is expected behaviour or not.

Installation on WIN 10 was working well without Problems. The Time to Sart Up is faster.


Win 10 Home Edition    AP 1.6.5.123    AD 1.6.5.123    APUB 1.7.0.238     ...and the current Beta´s

Have a nice day.

I had to drag it there too. And as you can see on my Signature, I also use Windows 10.

Best regards!

I also reset the user defaults, and Preview Mode is not on the Toolbar. I see that Baseline Grid is also missing. Both should appear between the Wrapping and Snapping icons, but it's blank:

Installation failed : 1.7.0.167

 

Sorry it may not seem like it but the installation was successful. Build 1.7.0.167 does not run on Windows 7. We will release a new build as soon as we can. in the meantime please uninstall 1.7.0.167 and continue to use 1.7.0.162 instead

Sorry Patrick 1.7.0.162 no go.

Was this after manually uninstalling build 1.7.0.167?  If not, first please restart the machine and then manually uninstall  build 1.7.0.167 first.

Your next step is to restart the machine and try the 1.7.0.162 installer again please

Hi Chris_K

Checked log, got this - see attached. But AP was installed from download folder - I think. Is there some way to check?

You get that screen if there is something wrong with Windows installer. You might want to fix that first.

download link for fix...

Guess what. Still getting setup failed. Not got a lot of hair left!

Tried restarting.

I notice there is nothing about curing setup failed in updates and fixes. Perhaps they've not noticed!

 

and you will not get any help from Serif. This is the response I got ' As Publisher is in beta at the moment we only provide support through our Support Forums. Please make a post about this in the sub forum found below. and I've tried to install on three win 10 64 bit PCs, all failed

Hi @Wolfie2,

I do not understand how you come to post this. Serif's staff is all over the place (= forum) posting help and instructions.
They even pointed you on how to get the best of assistance by pointing you to the right forum.

This, of course, must be very frustrating, I am with you there. Here I installed on a Win 10 64 bit PC without a problem. It seems the current beta is having some problems. I am sure the team at Serif will sort out those problems and it will eventually work on your computer as well.

Best regards,
d.

Oh! they know about it because I've told them. Their reply was as this is a Beta they will not get involved. They say that is what the forums are for.

There are some things that only the (small) QA team and the developers can help resolve, and the customer service and support team members are advised to put all issues here on the forums. Different staff and different ways to support the software before release and after.

3 hours ago (an hour before you posted that comment) you got a response from Serif to a thread that you created about this.

Thanks for the updates. Still unable to install directly over the previous version on a single try without rebooting, though. Windows 10 (1803), updating Publisher from beta .162.

Logs are attached for three installation attempts. You'll note that the failures seem to be permission-related...but the failure and success both happen while logged in as the same user, with the same UAC popup approval given. So my best guess is that there's some issue with a lock on the folder involved (or a file in it) that's still active at the point that the uninstaller or installer is trying to delete or modify the item in question.

Attempt 1: After running Publisher to check whether I had the latest version, exited, downloaded the newest, and ran the installer. Installation failed.

Attempt 2: Tried again immediately. Installation failed.

Attempt 3: Rebooted, logged back in as the same user. Ran the same installer. Installed successfully, and launches successfully.

Can anyone explain what 'Thin Space handling' is?

Unicode defines various fixed width spaces, including one called a Thin Space. Previously long lines could be broken at a thin space; now they can't; it is treated as a non-breaking space instead. This is preferred behaviour when the thin space is used as a separator in numbers. Also, previously Publisher always used its own widths for fixed spaces, according to their Unicode definitions. Now if the font defines the space, Publisher uses the font's width instead. More discussion at https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/topic/71532-thin-space-should-be-non-breaking-and-fixed-width-157/.

Many thanks for taking time to explain. I was on a completely different track and did not think of a unicode entity :)

Getting the same error - Windows 7 - 64bit.

Same problem here, also Windows 7 - 64 bit.

EDIT: I tried to install the previous version instead, and it failed. Now I do not have any working version of APub :(

EDIT2: Removing the program and re-installing the .162 was successful.
