When will Vector and Photo personas become available?

Recommended Posts

Hello good people. Evaluation of APublisher would be on a completely new level if those two personas become avilable. I'm curious where is the holdup? Please don't tell me they will become available when the Publisher releases.

Serif have said they will be enabled in Publisher when the released (non-beta) 1.7 versions of Photo and Design are installed. Unfortunately, they have not said (and will not say) when we may expect Photo and Designer 1.7 to finish beta testing.

Thank you for replying. That's kind of sad...

Also, I posted this topic in the wrong forum. It should have been discussion forum, not bug report.

It's a bit sad, but the functions and file formats are changing often enough during this combined beta process that having the personas active now would probably mean that a new beta of Publisher (or Photo, or Designer) could not be released without simultaneously releasing new betas of the other two applications. That would be hard to manage for Serif, and for us.

Just downloaded the latest Customer Betas of Designer and Photo (betas 1.0.7.243) and Personas is now available, either from Personas at the top of the File Menu, or Edit in Designer  or Edit in Photo.

I've yet to  work out what I can do with them. Well done Serif for your continued hard work and I look forward to examples of use from other users
