I am a bit curious, but I stopped with the beta versions some time back.  I am well satisfied with AD ,  with a few exceptions anyway, and I plan to just wait and see how it develops in the future.  I like reading about what you all find in it but I just can't bring myself to start all that again.    I know....that is laziness personified.

Teejay, it's the first item in the AD for Windows Beta Forum. Read all of the comments and Affinity responses before you do anything.

I'm with Linda....  don't want to fool with a beta. I want the real thing so I think I'll just wait and see.  It will be interesting once we do get it.  I don't have enough  hours in a day as it is so... no beta for me.  :cancan:

OMG!!!!   I said I wasn't going to look at the beta BUT.....  I couldn't stop myself!  I had to download and install it.  I LOVE it!!!

I only wanted to get a look at the interface to see if they really gave us a lighter color and... they did!!  I opened AD and PI at the same time and was able to adjust the background to the same color as PI - which is so much easier on the eyes!   The icons are easier to see as well. 

I will not be using this... at least that's what I'm saying now but... now I know what to expect in the next update! NO MORE UGLY BLACK!!!!     I didn't notice any other differences but then, I only took a quick look.  Now back to the real version but I do like that light background!!

Disappointed in the update. I was expecting a bit more than bug fixes. :)  Ah well, just have to keep on wishing.

I just couldn't resist a peek when I heard "light interface".   I won't be using the program - but I wanted to see it.  I already found a bug!!  I have the light interface turned on.  I went to View\Studios and on the list of studios, there are NONE checkmarked - at least none that you can see.   You cannot tell which ones are checked and which ones are not.  In the layers tab, when things are checked, they have a little blue "box" with a white checkmark so you can see them.  That's what we should see on the Studios - but.. they are not there.

Anyway, it's back to the ugly old black for now... after I report this bug.

Sheryl, there is more than bug fixes.  Try the Stabilizer option when using the Pencil tool.  Wow.....  it is so smooth!!!  That's as far as I've looked but I'm sure there are more little goodies hiding in there.  I can see them now with a light UI!  :star:

I'm going to wait till the full release comes out.  Unless they have some way to convert older files we have created as I understand we will not be able to open older afs (or whatever the AD ext is) with this current update.

I have no plans to use the beta - I have too much to learn between AD and AP as it is!!  But, I just HAD to get a peek at that light interface.  Can't wait for the version with this in it to come out. :star:
