Hi,

We are pleased to announce that an updated customer beta of Affinity Publisher (1.7.2.422) is now available as a download from the link above.

If this is your first time using a customer beta of an Affinity app please note that the beta will install as a separate app alongside your store version. They will not interfere with each other at all and you can continue to use the store version for critical work without worry.

The beta is an incremental update to the 1.7.1 store version. We recommend that you use this beta in preference to your store version if you are affected by any of the issues listed below.

If you have any problems 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.

StudioLink

StudioLink in this Beta requires Beta versions of Designer and Photo to function. We are hoping a Designer Beta will become available for macOS soon.

I'm sure you guys are working hard and so meekly ask if there is an approximate ETA for the Designer beta. I only ask because I'm holding back on using Publisher beta until StudioLink is fully active.

I don't see any improvement in this area, as you can see in these screen grabs. I am using el capitan on an iMac 2011. 

Actually, I made two screen recordings, but I can not upload them. Please get back to me and I can send you these recordings

@postmadesign I think you might be on about a slightly different recipe, this bug fix was for triple clicking/select all'ing in a cell and copy and pasting to another cell. If you can upload your files to here we can take a look

Thanks Jon, perhaps I misunderstood, as I thought it was a fix for the table issues I reported. I uploaded the files.

I started a thread in feedback on font organization but now honestly this issue has turned into a bug or a glitch and wanted to address it here.

It may well be a bug, but this is not the appropriate topic to address your concern, and posting here will not get your concern properly tracked by Serif. As AdamW mentioned in the first post in this topic, to report problems using the beta you need to create a new topic in Report Bugs in Publisher Beta on Mac.

(Also, if the problem exists in the retail version it may be better to report it in Pubisher Bugs Found on MacOS rather than in the beta forums.)
