Hi,

We are pleased to announce that an updated customer beta of Affinity Publisher (1.7.3.475) 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 1.7.2 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

This beta requires corresponding 1.7.3 Beta versions of Designer and Photo for StudioLink to function. These are not currently available but should be released soon.

Thanks for adding! – When looking in the help what "advanced" are in particular, I found PDF/X-5 mentioned as possible export option:

The current export pdf version list ends with X-4, so I wonder whether is this X-5 an error of the help articleor a missing UI snippet, too?

Thank you for this update. I am in the middle of a large project (with deadline fast approaching) and I started feeling ill when one of my files kept crashing when I tried to print or export as pdf.

It seems to be working now with the Beta. StudioLink would be nice, but not crashing is nicer.

Thanks,

Tim

Can I assume installing this would replace my existing Mac Beta 1.7.2.458 & would update items in ~/Library/Application Support/Affinity Publisher Beta without affecting anything I have edited/customized in that older beta like assets, shortcuts, presets, or the layout of the UI?

yes you can. If it does that would be unexpected and worth a new forum thread/report

Nothing I had edited/customized changed so no need for a new forum thread/report. :)
