Default CraftArtist Update Announcement (1.0.5)

Dear All.

Serif (Europe) Ltd. is announcing the release of an update for English Language CraftArtist (build number 1.0.5.043)

The main purpose of the build is to offer better cross-product compatibility with future releases, but it also addresses a few issues as listed below. Many are phrased in the negative from our database but are nevertheless fixed.
  • New style blend mode frames do not print preview correctly
  • Objects overlapping centre of photobooks do not clip to centre line
  • Colour picker does not work on Windows 7 with Aero disabled
  • As well as all the issues fixed in previous updates
We would recommend that ALL users of CraftArtist download and install this file. Serif recommend that updating should be done within the program, by using the "Check for update from web" option in the Help Menu. This will always get any available update for your version of Serif software (DVD or download) and install it too. The downloads page www.serif.com/downloads.asp has the file also, which is 10.0 MB.


Please note that CraftArtist software has 3 levels of software functionality. CraftArtist Compact, Standard and Professional. Check for updates will find the suitable patch for your software, as these are 3 separate patches.

To work out if you need this update choose "About CraftArtist" in the help menu and if the version number is 1.0.4.040 or less then you need this update. Helpfully the software checks for updates the first time it runs, so for those yet to install a CD, the latest update will be found on first use if needed.

Technical Info:

File name: FP011033_CraftArtist_Pro_1.0.5.043_Patch-Setup.exe
Size: 10.0 MB (10,573,136 bytes)
Digital Signature: Confirmed
Sig Date/Time: ‎17 ‎August ‎2011 15:02:23
MD5: 0D12030AC6F86C4E5626D1D62220B6D6
Removable: Yes.

Please report any problems updating CraftArtist in this thread, and any problems using the software in a new thread.

Thanks Sarah and Serif team. Update installation OK.



As yet no restoration of Print Preview then. Sorry if that sounds peevish, but it really is a bit of essential equipment. My full use of Craft Artist depends on it.

I just installed CraftArtist Pro. First thing it did was check for updates and tell me that an update is available. It downloaded the update and then bombed out with a "wrong version or wrong directory" error. I downloaded the patch and got the same results. Checked the version in help and it's "1.0.5.43 Aug 3 16:55:43". Manual upgrade attempt also bombed. FYI: I didn't install the program in the default location. That shouldn't make a difference.

What gives?

And btw, given how important it is to Support, why doesn't anyone put the software version information on the "About" page in copyable text?

UPDATE: I uninstalled and reinstalled, this time using the default C: drive settings. It still indicates there's an upgrade, downloads it ok, and bombs when applying it.

Hi, I'm not sure why you're being prompted to download the latest patch even though you've got it installed. Hopefully someone from the QA / installer team can comment. Fingers crossed it might just be a problem with our webservice which says whether or not a patch is required.

Hi, as I mentioned, there was a problem in the database that was saying the latest version is 1.0.5.53. It was just a typo that's now been corrected. If you do a check for updates, it should say you have the latest version.

Thanks for the feedback.
