Recommended Posts

Please Click here to download the latest beta for Windows

Status: Public Beta
Purpose: Stability and General Testing
Requirements: 64 Bit Win 7 SP1 / Win 8.1 / Win 10  (>=1607)

Hi,

We are pleased to announce Affinity Publisher build 270 is now available as a manual download from the link above and on auto-update.

As this is a beta it is considered to be not suitable for production use. This means that you should not attempt to use it for commercial purposes or for any other activity where you may be adversely affected by the application failing, including the total loss of any documents. 

We hope you enjoy the product, and as always, if you've got any problems installing or running up, please don't hesitate to post in this thread.

Any problems actually using this version please make a new topic in this forum and we'll get back to you as soon as we can. Please feel free to leave general suggestions and comments in the Discussion Forum

Many thanks for your continued feedback.

I personally appreciate to know what is coming soon to Windows. It also could be useful for users to not post a bug report if they see that it is already fixed on Mac.

Yes, but I do not read the Mac forum and I would miss this information. I think it doesn't do no harm :)

The main reason is just that it saves us a little bit of time which can be better spent elsewhere.
