I'm not running the Betas, so was wondering if the exit from Full Screen problem I was having has been resolved?

 

Cheers and thanks for all your hard work so far,

 

George

I think so. Is this the one to do with the ESC key and fullscreen mode?

Minor question but is it possible to delete the MAS version and just run the beta? I mean will it know that I'm an authentic user still?

 

Main reason for this is clicking on files and them defaulting to the MAS version.

 

I know I could probably just change default behaviour but I have a OCD streak about deleting unused apps.

 

Cheers.

 

PS) can't wait for publisher.

Hi kelpsalt,

 

Unfortunately, the beta version needs to see a valid Mac App Store version installed in order to know that you're a customer and allow you to run it, sorry :(

Hey guys, for some reason I'm getting tons of crashes with the current beta. Perhaps it's stemming from beginning files in 1.2.1, opening them some in the new beta, then going back to 1.2.1 after having issues? But often I'm getting crashes every couple minutes. Uploading a couple files here.

Thanks for this - I noticed that your first crashes were from the swatch panel and the second crashes were from something to do with snapping... I'll try to look into them - but they're not very common crash sites, which is odd... :S

I hadn't checked the recent betas and I don't think I overlooked it in previous versions, but

 

THANK YOU!!!!!

 

I see resizing is now available in the Export... window in BOTH Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo!!

 

This is the one feature (Save for Web resizing in Photoshop) that I couldn't seem to find in other apps and was frequently needing to create a smaller version of hi res images for web postings and was stuck having PS as my only option.

 

Thanks again, and thank you for making it work in both!!! :D:D:D

Hang about - give me a minute!!! I'm not sure if I've slept in the last 8 months - I'm working as fast as my little hands can type! ;)

Ouch. I hope it will pay out...

You guys are doing a great job, but don't get burned out: We will need you in the future too.  ;)
