Hi Adam, it seems the Pinning panel docking problem on Win 10 has not yet been solved ... :(

Hi Ludger, 

I hadn't got around to looking into your post but have reproduced that issue and logged it for the developers to look into.

If you are stuck being unable to run the app due to this bug holding down CTRL whilst running it up the app will reset the studios.

It's worth noting however that if you haven't had a response to a post it won't likely be fixed in the next beta.

Thanks!

Good news, thank you. Just for the record, the download again is extremely slow, just like .302. I had this never before.

Works fine for me. :)

Thanks for the thumps up. It is finally here after more than two hours and several disruptions. It may as well be a connection problem between my service provider and Amazon S3.

Going to install ...

Thanks Jon, my solution is to delete the corrupted lines in the WindowProfile.xml so I do not have to rebuild the GUI, or I simply copy a xml backup file. :)

Waiting for the next beta ...

Sorry, but I there is a circuit for build 312 of publisher:

Based on build 293, properly installed on windows 10, I was directed to download build 312.

After upgrading to build 312, opening it I got again the message (this beta is no longer valid ...) and was again directed to download build 312.

Deleting publisher and installing build 312 from scratch (as administrator) didn't solve the problem.

I have several PDFs that had crashed Affinity Publisher on my Surface Pro 4 (not crashing on my iMac 27/5K though), but, the new .312 beta on Win have fixed every PDF-crash for me...

Thank’s Serif, it seems to me that we pretty soon can see an release ;-)

I have been successfully using build 312, but when I tried to go into it today, I got a message "New beta available. Please download the latest..." .But the "latest" download's file name is 1.7. 0.312. Do I need to install it?

You have to make sure you look for the latest version. You usually find it in a fixed post at the top of this forum:
Affinity Publisher Public Beta - 1.7.0.337

Thanks, Dominik! But I got the 312 download by clicking the link on the page to update Publisher. I went to that page by clicking the "Download" link that was in the message box that said there was a new beta available. I guess someone forgot to edit where that link would take the user.
