    If you purchased Designer 6 years ago, I'm pretty sure you must have purchased it from the Mac App Store as I believe it's only been available from the Affinity Store for 2 years or so. You would need to sign in to the Mac App Store using the same identity you used for the original purchase, and install from there. You can't get it from the Affinity Store.

    I think no one wants to hear the truth. 
    Affinity Designer and Photo were a good idea. But unfortunately it failed in performance.
    I tried this software on different computes. And the performance really sucks on each one.
    Inkscape and Gimp are much better in these things. 
    Why did I buy Designer and Photo? Because look modern and has features which I missing in free software.
    Like the curve-features for polygon. Round corners also if they combined by boolean function. That's pretty cool.
    Anyway, you (Serif) have to work hard on this software to improve the performance. Otherwise the software is a money and time wasting thing. 
    Maybe you think: The business is doing well with these software. But I think it's because marketing and the look of this software. Also the features.
    But NOT the peformance. THIS is the thing you have to work on it.

    Thanks for that Alfred. I hoped to show how Affinity software is a fully professional package. It does the ordinary work as well as the attractive. One other thing, that project has spanned several years and the files and features are still supported when updated. Not so for some brands eh?

    Thanks, @GarryP!
    Sure, here's the unprocessed, pure rendering. As you can see it misses the dynamism of the processed final image. That's what I added using Affinity Photo, as well as using the Inpainting tools to fine-tune some of the textured background. I've also added a slight grainy texture on the croc, to make him less separated from the grungy background.

    affinity4Christ15 reacted to cabsdb in Colour Picker ? Designer iPad   
    Bug Report: This is still an issue: February 6, 2020.  Hello- I am reporting a bug related this this thread.  I have an iPad 9.7 (6th Gen) and use the Apple Pencil (1st Gen). Everything is updated (iOS and Affinity Designer on the iPad).  I was trying to make a new color swatch from an image that I imported, but the current fill wouldn't "pick/update" the color whenever I used the color picker tool/dropper (it stayed white with a line/unfilled).  It didn't matter if I used my Apple Pencil or my finger.  Note: I had "Touch for gestures only" enabled.  I searched online to see if this was a problem for anyone else and saw this thread.  I then went into Preferences>Tools settings and turned the "touch for gestures only" feature off and went back into my document and the color picker feature was now working properly.  So it seems that the problem is somewhere in the coding in regards to having the "touch for gestures" feature set to ON.

    affinity4Christ15 reacted to Tevya in Pinch Zoom Stopped Working   
    Hi, going into sys prefs > trackpad and disabling pinch-to-zoom then enabling it again worked for me. 
    I found this on Reddit: 
    It suggests that it could be a conflict with Better Touch Tool (in my case) or similar apps like Magnet, etc.
    Here's my issue though: this doesn't happen in any other apps! It doesn't happen in Illustrator, Photoshop, Chrome, etc. It only affects Affinity Designer (I don't use Photo) for me. So maybe the BTT devs can help, but it seems like it's an Affinity issue that needs to be fixed on their end!

    Found this topic at last...I have the same problem as well.
    My touchpad on MBP 2016 13" with Touch Bar works fine with all apps, but some months ago the Pinch to Zoom stopped working from time to time. I could fix it by turning the pinching functionality on and off several times in system preference. By it kept happening and it bother me, especially when Im working on a design and zooming in and out is a very often task.
    I tried to pin-point the source of this issue and found that Affinity Designer is the reason. My other apps (Adobe PS, AI and other stuff) work just fine. But whenever I launch Affinity Designer, there's a 90% chance that after some time the Pinch to Zoom will stop working. By quitting Affinity Designer, the pinching would work again after some more minutes. 
    I tried to turn off every touchpad related option in AD but the problem is still there. It's not a big issue, but somewhat inconvenient. Turning the pinching on and off in system preference is by far my only solution whenever this problem occurs, since it always happen when I have loads of design to work on AD and restarting can be a pain in the ...
    BTW, I have another MBP which is a 2015 model that comes with a conventional trackpad (instead of a force-touch version), and this problem never occurs.
    Could anyone in Affinity dress the issue?

    I haven't checked preferences for the simple reason it turns itself on and off seemingly at random. The trackpad works perfectly with all other applications all the time; it's just hit and miss with Affinity. So I think something inside Affinity is deciding whether it wants to cooperate with pinch/spread to zoom and canvas rotate.

    affinity4Christ15 reacted to Dampsquid in What am I doing wrong? (SVG export problem)   
    OK, so I did that... and it worked!!  But... wouldn't dividing the shape simply put it back as was originally when the two shapes were first drawn?
    So I did another quick test.  I used the pencil tool to create two shapes, one within the perimeter of the other as it is for the letter 'o'.  I then used subtract, which made one curve and exported it.  In the other app applying a fill ignores the inner shape again.  So next I used divide on the result of the previous subtract, re-subtracrted and exported.  This should be the same as you have outlined, and given it just worked with the real 'o' you'd think it would work with this new test document too... but no.  The other app still ignores the inner geometry.
    Something very weird is going on.  If someone at Affinity is reading this.. I'm mystified...and quite happy to record a video of what I'm doing...
