What is and where can I find the latest version of Publisher beta for Windows?  I have .384  Is that the latest?

 

The latest is always in a pinned post at the top of this forum. Currently here. (.399)

Sorry, but I'm not familiar with the term "GM Preview". What does that mean, please?

Is the .399 for Windows as well as for Mac? The post with the link to the update says that Mac is required, and doesn't say anything about Windows. Is there some way I could identify whether the download is for Windows or Mac?

Gold Master Preview.

The Gold Master is the version they're planning to release. The terminology probably comes from the recording industry where it described the physical object that would be used to press/stamp the new retail copies.

You asked in the Mac forum, so I pointed you to the one in the Mac forum.

Edit: if you want the one for Windows, look in the corresponding Windows forum :)

Edit 2: or, here:

I didn't realize there was a different forum.  I find these a very confusing way to get answers and help.  I'll look for it because mine keeps crashing

I had a HARD time finding the latest Windows update for Publisher! After maybe ... 40+ minutes wasted? ... I finally somehow clicked on a "Publisher bugs" link and found it. Guys, would you PLEASE make it easier to find the latest download? The link in the message box that comes up when one loads the program, that says there's a new update -- doesn't go to the place of the download for Windows. Maybe I'm dumber than most folks, but I'd bet others are having problems finding their Windows downloads, too! I didn't expect to find "Downloads" under "Bugs". That somehow seems ... inappropriate.

Thank you!  I've been searching off and on all day with little useful help.  So frustrating. Now I need to see if I can find what you found.  Is this for something newer than .384 for Windows?  Maybe I should just wait until tomorrow for the full release.  Ugh

I pointed to it in my earlier response.

Sorry I didn't see your post sooner!

IF it still works after release on June 19, it was here: https://forum.affinity.serif.com/index.php?/forum/58-report-bugs-in-publisher-beta-on-windows/

I found it by clicking the "breadcrumb" at the top of the page for the Mac download; the "crumb" that was for forums for publisher.

In that page was a link "Report bugs in Publisher beta on Windows".

Inside that page was "Affinity Publisher Public Beta - 1.7.1.399 (GM Preview)"

Correct wrong info on which "breadcrumb" to click to find the latest Windows download of Publisher.

It's hard I agree, so to help with that there is a thread where the last post always points to the latest beta builds

MacOS thread

Windows thread

Those threads are pinned at the top of the first forum "news and Information"
