Hi,

We are pleased to announce that Affinity Publisher build 384 (RC1) is now available as a download from the link above. To be notified of further updates please press follow on this announcement thread.

We are very happy with Affinity Publisher 1.7 and are moving towards the final stages for launch, but would still urge some caution with respect to using this version for critical work as it is still possible we may have missed something that may cause you issues.

That said, please note that we aren’t done yet - we are still working through reported bugs and hope to fix as many as possible before launch. After launch we will start a new Customer Beta for those who wish to have early access to on-going updates and fixes.

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.

Hi there,

i'm so happy and can't wait for the final release! One little thing: Backgroundcolour transparency in text fields had still no percentage like other coloured fields!

Kind regards,
Thomas

We are more and more closer to day D (19th of June)!

Speaking of Affinity in general, and Mac/iPad specific, have anybody here tested the new function Sidecar into iPadOS13/MacOS Catalina?

Just ran Affinity Designer for Mac on my iPad Pro 12.9” with the Apple Pencil, and, the speed is amazing! Almost as running Mac version native on the iPad (with cable)...

If you run over network/WiFi/Bluetooth everything can change depending of your connections...
