Affinity Designer 1.8 New features list?

Recommended Posts


I have read the "fixes, improved, and added" bullet list in the top post called "Affinity Designer Windows Customer Beta -"

Is this the official place to find a list of all the proposed new features for Affinity Designer 1.8?

Or is there a better place I can find a proposed new features list?

There is no proposed new features list for 1.8, Dave. [Edit: Rather, I'm sure Serif has one, but we can't see it :) ]

It will contain what Serif wants it to contain, based on what they feel is complete and stable enough to ship, and we will find out what it contains when they make it available to us.

Share on other sites is the first beta in the 1.8 series of betas

Additional 1.8 betas should contain some new features (so we can test them). 

Only the final 1.8 beta will be representative of what we can expect in the final released version of 1.8

Only Serif know in advance of what features will be added to each beta, we mostly just have to wait until they are released to find out.



Due to the fact that Boris Johnson is now our Prime Minister, punctuation, spelling and grammar will never be worried about ever again.  We now have far bigger problems to be concerned about.

It wasn't necessarily that, it was that we didn't keep the roadmap up to date, and we started shipping new features which never appeared on the roadmap, and then customers (understandably) asked about why the particular feature they were interested in, that was still on the roadmap, hadn't shipped it yet. The roadmap was a vision of where we thought the software would go, 5 years ago, but over time, our vision has changed slightly (well, individual features have got re-prioritised).
