OUT NOW – AVA 5.2!

We are now shipping AVA 5.2…

Introducing Tabbed windows to clean up your working environment, allowing you to more quickly access the information you need.


A single Selections Palette window now operates as a browser so you don’t need one per document- saving further screen space.

Quickly locate your designs, motifs, templates and palettes visually using our new File Browser. Create your own custom file locations. View open or recent items, Save or Close all your open files with one click. We are sure that you will wonder how you lived without this great new feature..


Free yourself from everyday tasks by combining new Resize, Gripping, Saving palette items to make custom workflows which work at the touch of a button. Simply drag the steps into a Palette to create your own custom automation. You could, for example, press a single button to save a resized copy of a design as a TIFF, PDF or JPEG. Filter items can now be edited in the Palette.

More settings are automatically stored within AVA files, improving their portability between systems and when reopened in the future. You can also embed order information, notes or production instructions within a design using the new built in Palette per document! Simply drag PDF’s directly in or save filters and brushes within the design for use at a later date.

There is a new Thin filter, improved selection when clicking on vectors, and an enhanced zoom function. A new “stair case” Gamma feature has many uses including separations to stepped tone.

There are new Structure Simulation navigation and surface area features and please make sure you look for a demo of Productivity Manager as it now features easier setup and design searching.

Our brand new modernised ColourSys 2 is now installed as default. It’s nicer to use, contains many new features and paves the way for many more.

AVA 5.2 incorporates changes to make it look stunning on macOS Mojave’s beautiful Dark mode, allowing your designs to take centre stage.



Please note: This is just an introduction to the features. After installing, please see AVA Assist for more detailed interactive information about these and the many other features which are contained within this release.

For AVA 5.2 we recommend running macOS Mojave (10.14). Our minimum macOS requirement is now version 10.12.

Phone lines are all back up and running again!
