Affinity Publisher Public Beta -

Recommended Posts

Status: Public Beta
Purpose: Stability and General Testing
Requirements: Mac OS 10.9 or above


We are pleased to announce that Affinity Publisher build 293 is now available as a manual download from the link above. To be notified when there is a new beta please press follow on this announcment thread

Build 293 fixes a tool regression found in Build 292 logged as 'Crash on Grouping' and 'Crash using the Colour Picker Tool'. It is built from the same code as Windows Build 293 and ensures that everyone across Mac and Windows can use the same 'latest version' which helps us internally.

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.


  • Fixed 'Crash on Grouping' / 'Crash using the Colour Picker Tool'
  • Fixed highlight index marks in the index panel when you move the caret next to them 
  • Fixed drag below master in layers view 
  • Fixed double clicking index mark places the caret rather than selecting 
  • Fixed crash during save of large document

@AdamW thank you for this release and i'm just exited for the next coming version you said your team is cooking.
My side the install was fluid no issue, only faced few drop with the download but not that much.
The link to your S3 servers works very well for me so no complain.

Blessings !

Just downloaded this version, which I'm sure is choc-a-bloc of improvements. However, upon exporting a pdf of a publication I'm working on, I immediately noticed that the left and right side (or one of them) of all spreads are displaced – while everything's looking perfectly alright in Affinity Publisher itself. Also, in some of the spreads a white area appears near the spine (this, too, only in the exported pdf).

I really really hope a fix is imminent. Apart from that, looking forward to see what improvements you've come up with.

P.S. I'm sorry, but it would appear that this only happens when I include the bleed, which explains everything (I wasn't aware that the bleed box is checked by default after downloading this most recent version). No problems then. Again, I'm sorry.
