  1. It's a common use of Photoshop, and many of use are trying to replace Photoshop for all of its uses in our life, photography and otherwise. It's a shame something so fundamental to image editing, and something that many of us older users still know how to use, is missing. I hope the developers don't always limit the features to the realm of "normal photo editing."
  2. @R C-R, @Alfred Actually, it's called knowledge of how the world works. Do you honestly think that Serif isn't a customer of Microsoft's and that Microsoft doesn't have customer support for its corporate customers who sell through the Windows Store? Wow. I guess I'm in deep with the fanboys now, aren't I?! Yee-haw! But here's another suggestion for you folks (Mac users?) who think this is all big, bad Microsoft's fault, and there's nothing little ol' Serif can do about it: When I right-click on an image in Lightroom, I get the option to "Edit in..." and listed in that menu
  3. @Gerard O First of all, every Windows desktop developer has to "create modifications for Windows security and permission processes and policies" when they build software, so that's just plain wrong. I could send Serif an invoice and they could verify it with MSFT. Obviously I wouldn't have a privacy issue with that if I initiated the process. But you're not thinking very hard about a solution for this issue and neither is Serif. I'm not upset, I'm just saying there ARE solutions Serif could implement, and for you to suggest otherwise to this former software developer is a waste of yo
  4. Thanks, @walt.farrell. I should give MSFT a call, but I read that it's against their policy, which is why I would have expected Serif to come up with a way to verify my Windows Store license, and give me a single-seat license from their own store.
  5. @mac_heibu, plenty of software developers have to come up with technical and customer service workarounds for Microsoft's, Apple's and even the internet's changing standards and peculiarities. I used to work for one. So with that perspective, I do think Serif has dropped the ball if they couldn't be clever or generous enough with their efforts over the last year not to have come up with a way to transfer licenses or otherwise make the Windows Store version of AP better compatible with Lightroom, the professional standard for managing a photo library which AP cannot yet replace. At the very le
  6. Thanks, Callum. But Has Serif come up with any solution in the meantime? Am I able to switch my licenses to non-Windows Store versions? And thanks, Ian. I hate screwing with things like system permissions, but maybe I'll do that if Serif offers no solution.
  7. I recently purchased the trio of Affinity apps on the Windows Store when they were on sale, and when it came time to set Affinity Photo as the external editor in my standalone copy of LR6, I began to wish I had bought it straight from Serif. I found a thread in this forum on this topic from 2018 which explained how Microsoft hides the apps purchased in the Windows Store, and it was at that point impossible to target Affinity Photo as LR's external editor. (I'm coming from Photoshop, as you might have guessed.) So is this still the case or is there now a way to link LR to AP? Tha
