Now that Designer 1.7 is released, what should we do with the installed Designer Beta?
Should we delete the Beta, or will it remain active, tracking feature developments for Designer 1.8?
Do you have anything in the App Store build that you want to keep at the same time? If not then you should be able to do the following:
For Mac App Store do the following:
Go to \Users\username\Library\Application Support\Affinity Designer Beta\ and copy all the files and folders inside there.
Go to \Users\username\Library\Containers\com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner\Library\Application Support\ and paste the contents into there overwriting whatever was in there.
(Note to other readers) For Affinity Store do the following:
Go to "\Users\username\Library\Application Support\Affinity Designer Beta\" and copy all the files and folders inside there.
Go to "\Users\username\Library\Application Support\Affinity Designer\" and paste the contents into there overwriting whatever was in there
When you next run up the application it should have all the same settings your beta had. However please note that if you had already made any changes to 1.7 (or had any content from 1.6) already there these WILL BE LOST! If you wish to keep that then export those out and reimport before doing the steps above.
