Publisher to be released in (less than) 3 weeks time.

Recommended Posts

I tried to pre-order, but the link isn't working for me. The site seems to be down.

P.S. Just realised this is the Mac Forum and I had the Windows beta — not that that should make a difference in ordering.

The mails are probably sent out in batches.

Is it possible to pre order on the Mac AppStore? I've got Designer and Photo there and it would be nice having all of them in the same place ...

Can confirm it's working.

I guess StevieB means two weeks until the product is available. It's a preorder.

This is not supported on the Mac App Store. You can order on launch from Mac App Store or Affinity Store but it is not likely to be at this higher level of discount (available to beta testers).

Thanks for the info ... I'll wait until it's on the AppStore then, even if there's a small difference in price -- thought the AppStore had the same functionality as the one on my Phone (they do preorders there).

When I bought Designer and Photo they weren't available outside the AppStore, so I'll just do it this way for now and order directly from Serif, when I upgrade to version 2 in the (far) future.

Sorry, Patrick, for the confusion. (I'm easily confused!)

The decision was made for the personas to be active only in the purchased version of Affinity Publisher, when the Purchased versions of Affinity Designer 1.7.x and/or Affinity Photo 1.7.x have been installed (and run). [These Personas will therefore not appear in the free Public beta, but may function in the later customer betas.]

If you want to wait intil there is a trial of Affinity Publisher you will be able to test these personas (IF you have purchased the relevant sister application that enables the button)

For StevieB: Don't let it get to you,  I'm easily confused too. I'm confused about today, let alone what will happen in two or three weeks. 

For mshustov: What the eye doesn't see, the heart doesn't grieve. Maybe the Persona buttons will work in two or three weeks! Maybe, all kinds of little undocumented tweaks and goodies will suddenly be revealed! If so, that will REALLY confuse me.....

I waited to jump in and purchase both Designer and Photo until they were on the app store for 30% off in the past. Then I used iTunes gift cards that were at a discounted price as well, making it and even better price. Too bad I won't be able to do that this time, unless I wait again for the 30% discount on the app store which may or may not even happen.

Sometimes it baffles me, how cleverish people can be when buying something — it's not that I don't appreciate a nice discount, but Serifs software is SO fairly priced for what it does, that I don't worry about a couple percent ...

Will keep your method in mind for other purchases though, Jeremy. Didn't know AppStore offered giftcards, especially discounted one ... gonna keep my eyes open.

Costco often has $100 (4x$25) gift cards for around $85! However with only a 20% discount on the app store I think the 30% through Serif is the better deal on launch.
