Auto-update: Available

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.

May I add my name to the (hopefully) HUGE number of people wanting to say Thank you for creating a sensible alternative to the Adobe/Quark domination of DTP! My collection Photo/Designer/Publisher is now complete.

All I require now is a vector warp tool in Designer ;) Feel free to have a break for a couple of days and then I'll gladly test your 1.7.1 beta with said tool!!!

Excellent to see the FC1 of this, just as I wanted to tackle something a little chunkier with it. :)
However, I see the persona buttons STILL don't work. When pressed, it references the fact it's a beta - I thought it was meant to be FC1? I'm running .384...

Am I missing something?? :|

Thank you the fix in 384 has resolved my spell check error where it was checking a page of text and dive off somewhere else.

Also without changing any settings the spell check is now learning and saving new words.

Setup failed and needed a reboot to reinstall the program which had been wiped out by the attempted upgrade

I really hope you get this fixed before you roll out the final version. It was fixed for one beta some time ago but then broke again. It only happens with Publisher

Updating to this new version has left me with no access to PUBLISHER. The Icon is inaccessible, as is the Folder in C:\Programs

I cannot delete this folder even as Administrator.

HELP PLEASE.

Hello!

I love Publisher, it's working well, I only have one problem. It would be great if you make possible hebrew letters order (from right to left). Now the letters are turning the wrong way when I'm copying text with hebrew words. Or I don't know something about the functionalities. In this case, please help :)

Thanks :)

Installed the beta 384 on Windows 10.1709 (yes, it's old). Publisher wasn't already installed but I did have it installed earlier on this system. Everything went well. Startup worked, I shortly tested linked text blocks with some decorations and text flow around an image. No problems at all while moving things around on the page. For anything else, I'd probably have to watch tutorials first, or spend more time exploring on my own.

I use Lock hunter which installs on the right click menu and will unlock or delete locked files and folder. SOMETIMES it can only do it by rebooting

There is also unlocker that does the same thing but the installer throws virus warnings. They are false positives but there they are

FC1? RC1, means release candidate 1...

 

Software installed without a problem. Can start Publisher up without any problem.

The buttons for Designer and Photo will ONLY work in the release version of Publisher and with officially purchased copies of Designer and Photo and with CUSTOMER beta's. It will NOT work in PUBLIC beta's...

Quote from Patrick Connor:

"be aware I said customer betas, those released after we launch to preview fixes and more new features. The PUBLIC betas 1.7.0.376 won't ever show those personas, indeed it will stop working."
