Print Dialogue issues in 1.7.2 upgrade

Recommended Posts

Having issues with printer dialogue menu changing to default OS print dialogue menu on upgrade to 1.7.2

My issue was specifically with Canon printers

Pro -100
imagePROGRAPH 820

The 820 was rendered unusable as the printer options were not present in the new menu

I did a little reading that the most recent OS plan for Apple is to discontinue custom manufacturer printer dialogues in favour of a unified menu but I have not confirmed this.
It appears that 1.7.2 conforms to this for what I can only assume are reasons of compatibility.

Restoring 1.7.1 resolved the issue.
Also present in upgrade for Affinity Publisher 1.7.2  but not in Affinity Photo that remained unaffected in 1.7.2

It looks like this was a Mojave bug. We managed to replicate this in both our software and native Mac software ( Pages, Numbers, etc). They were all missing the options. However, Apple fixed this and in macOS Catalina seems to be working fine now.

Good to know. Waiting on the release of Catalina.


Update 1.7.3 Fixed this for AD (Photo has so far been free of this problem)
Publisher is still experiencing the issue as of 1.7.3 (1.7.1 being the last version were I am still able to get all the printer features).

That's suggesting to me that the issue is at least somewhat with the Affinity software.
