  • (Win) Character page dropdowns not working when using select tool.

Print and Export

  • (Mac) Fix for crash printing CMYK documents with Embedded RGB documents.
  • (Mac) PDF Export: Allow advanced features checkbox was missing.

  • (Win) Fix for failures when installed to folder with a non-ANSI path.
  • Fixed failure to import .ABR brushes.
  • Fixes for stability issues that have been logged with us.
  • Plus Translation and Help updates.

This thread is for commenting on this announcement. Please do not post bugs or problems that you find when using this version of the software in this thread, instead make a new thread in the Publisher Bugs on Windows section and questions about usage go in the Desktop Questions forum.

UPDATING TO THIS VERSION (Free for existing customers)

The software version can be seen on the splash screen and the About dialog (in Help > About Affinity Publisher).

If you’ve purchased from the Affinity Store— each time you start the Affinity Store software it will check for updates and offer any available update. The latest update will install over the top of any earlier version, with no need to uninstall. You can download the latest installer by logging into the affinity store here and find the order in your account and use the "Download" button in there. Alternatively, this new release (and previous versions of Affinity Publisher for Windows) can be downloaded from this link (that installer is NOT for Windows Store purchases and needs a product key).

If you’ve purchased from the Microsoft Store— Microsoft Store updates are done automatically by the operating system (each time you start the application). If this does not happen for you, open the Windows Store app and click the three dots in the top right corner of the app and then go to Downloads and Updates. Click Get Updates. This should hopefully force the update to show.
