    What sort of “frames” would you like to have a grid in, and why would you want a grid in them?

    How about this: I created a table with 1" squares, placed it on a master page & enabled snapping. When its time to print, I can apply a master without the table.
    Or, is there a setting to prevent the table from printing?

    By the way, what is the penal section in Affinity, & where is it located?

    If you bought the assets throught the affinity store you can access them through your affinity account and download them image.png.1e6b7df34bdd17cdde39fc638ea413a8.png

    If you are trying to install assets from the forum you need to  download them in to a file like I showed in my earlier post and load them in to affinity using the import / export option in the asset panel and browse to the file where you downloded them by clicking on the striped icon in the panel main menu

    If you have anything in your document you want to use as an asset you can select it on the page and highlight it and save it as an asset. You can highlight multiple assets to add from selection. But note this is in the penal section not the main import. You can create a new category from the main panel menu above if you want a new category or create a new sub category

    Finally Assets take up space in you program and can get quite large so it is benefical to download a copy to you assets folder that you have created using export from the main menu and give it a name you will remember what is there and when you have checked it is downloaded, you can delete them from the main Asset menu, this is good practice to keep a backup of your assets in case the Affinity file (propcol) gets corrupted as you will lose your assets if that file is not backed up

    Thanks for sharing your expertise.

  5. Your assumption certainly has merit. Thanks for teaching us a new word: 

    Sandbox

    Computer Security
    In computer security, a sandbox is a security mechanism for separating running programs, usually in an effort to mitigate system failures and/or software vulnerabilities from spreading. It is often used to execute untested or untrusted programs or code, possibly from unverified or untrusted third parties, suppliers, users or websites, without risking harm to the host machine or operating system. A sandbox typically provides a tightly controlled set of resources for guest programs to run in, such as storage and memory scratch space. Network access, the ability to inspect the host system or read from input devices are usually disallowed or heavily restricted.

    From your screenshot, your Assets panel is showing one asset category, "Falling Snow by Paper Farms." If you click on the disclosure triangle to the right of the subcategory name, you should see a long list of assets, all of which end in ".png."

    Eureka! You found the answer. Thank you very much.

    I think you are getting .assets files and .propcol files confused.

    The .propcol file is a proprietary storage file for the .assets files contents to be stored in, there is no way to open this file manually or outside of the Affinity app and see it's contents. It is the assets panel that accesses this file to show it's contents.

    The assets.propcol file is visible in explorer. The assets panel is looking for .afassets; so it shows the folder as empty.
