Copying over user data from Beta to Retail

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Thanks for taking part in the Affinity Publisher Beta.

Now that we are launched, I thought it might be useful to give you all a quick rundown on how to transfer over content from Beta to Retail.


The "Faster" Way!

Affinity Store

Once you've installed the retail build and ran it up:

  1. Navigate to %AppData%\Roaming\Affinity\Publisher
  2. Rename the "1.0" folder to "1.0 Backup"
  3. Copy and Paste the "1.0 (Beta)" folder, rename the copy "1.0 (Beta) Backup"
  4. Rename "1.0 (Beta)" folder to "1.0"

Windows Store

  1. Navigate to %AppData%\Affinity\Publisher
  2. Copy the "1.0 (Beta)" folder
  3. Navigate to %LocalAppData%\Packages\SerifEuropeLtd.AffinityPublisher_844sdzfcmm7k0\LocalCache\Roaming\Affinity\Publisher\
  4. Rename the "1.0 (Store)" folder to "1.0 (Store) Backup"
  5. Paste the "1.0 (Beta)" folder into this directory and rename it "1.0 (Store)"

This will essentially just move all the custom user data over to retail

The "Safer" Way!
