Update end

For the Apple Mac version of Affinity Designer is currently the Update auf die Version 1.5.2 ready, however warns the software company Serif before its installation. So if you get a message from Mac App Store or the program itself tells you that an update to the new version of Designer is available, then do not download it. If you already downloaded it, don't install it. Already happened? Hopefully you haven't started the program yet...

Affinity Designer Update to 1.5.2 removes customizations

As the company behind the program announced today, you shouldn't install said update! This is the official rationale from the Affinity.Serif.com forum: "Running this update will reset any brushes, styles, text styles, swatches, keyboard shortcut customization and workspace layout you may have added."

Translated it means: "Running this update will reset any brushes, styles, text styles, patterns, keyboard shortcut adjustments, and surface layouts that you may have added.“- In short: Anyone who has set up the program to suit their needs and filled it with their own content will lose this working status. Therefore the Designer Update to version 1.5.2 should not be carried out.
