  1. Thanks Wosven, Do I need to buy Affinity Designer to convert an .ai to .afdesigner or can that be done within Affinity Photo? Ill buy it eventually as I am moving away from Adobe to Affinity but Id like to master one new app at a time! Thanks
  2. Hi. I am a Photoshop user switching to Affinity. I placed a file, MAP.ai on a new Untitled document. Dragged the size out as I wanted. Clicked EDIT DOCUMENT and changed colours and added colour outline and drop shadow effects successfully. I can switch tabs above the image, between the original map which has it own tab called <Embedded> and the final high rez image which is called <Untitled> and I can make changes as I wish. All good! But when I save the file and then re-open it the image of the Map with its effects seems to be flattened so that I cannot make further changes to the effects I have created. …they are now fixed permanently within the image. If I was working in Photoshop I could take the effects off or alter their settings as long as I saved the file as a .psd. I have tried saving with the “save History” setting ticked, but it doesn’t give me access to the effects. How can I save my .afphoto file so i can maintain its editability? I get a message when i reopen the file that says “Linked resource changed. ….MAP.ai has been modified outside of the application.” Any help gratefully received.
