Affinity Designer 1.2 now available on the Mac App Store.
Serif is delighted to announce that its award-winning professional illustration app for Mac, Affinity Designer, is updated with fantastic new features, new languages, performance enhancements, and improvements that take working with a creative suite to a completely new level.
Available through the Mac App Store, this free update introduces an intuitive, time- saving Corner tool, a much-requested and very fluid Text-on-a-path feature, and Pixel Alignment Mode for Web & UI design. A new capability to save undo History with documents lets users slide back in time to inspect a design—or go back and take it in a new direction—many days, weeks or months after it was last edited.
With new seamless document switching into Affinity Photo beta and a common file format for saving without worry, designers can take advantage of the strengths of both apps and just focus on design. Saved document History also allows Affinity Photo to undo editing steps that were performed in Affinity Designer and vice versa.
“Affinity Designer has had a meteoric start, with early recognition from Apple and from our amazing pro designer customers.” says Ashley Hewson, Serif’s Managing Director. “After lots of hard work from the Affinity dev team we’re delighted to deliver on our promise of new features and enhancements for our customers, totally free of charge. The new design features, UI tweaks, compatibility improvements, and usability updates will allow pro designers to achieve even more in even less time. The team also managed to squeeze more performance out of the Affinity Designer engine—we’ve raised the bar higher yet again. Affinity Photo compatibility and a shared History are also helping show how good a modern creative suite can be.”
Tony Brightman, head of Affinity development adds “Changes to Affinity apps demand a high level of polish, so we’re very grateful for all the input we’ve had from designers since our last update. I’m delighted to say that we’ve made Affinity Designer even more useful in professional settings and even more usable; the overall experience is incredibly smooth. As a team we’re also delighted to better welcome a wider audience of designers with German, Spanish, French and US English languages now built in alongside the original UK English.”
The free update to Affinity Designer 1.2 is available exclusively via the Mac App Store—and for those yet to buy Affinity Designer it is available for just £39.99 / €49.99 / $49.99 with no subscription.
