  1. Curious of any progress on this... would be nice to hear an update from Serif on this.
  2. Same here. Been using RAW with Nikon cameras for several years now. Very excited about what Apple has done on the latest iPhone and ProRAW. It opens up a whole new range of possibilities, all while fitting in your pocket.
  3. Just an FYI that there is another thread about this same topic. This issue impacts both M1 and Intel, both App Store and non-AppStore versions. I have an Intel iMac (excited to see what future M1 surprises come out) and this only happens with Affinity applications. All my other applications (most of them are universal) are fine and launch pretty quickly. Startup performance 1.8.6 - Page 2 - Photo Bugs found on MacOS - Affinity | Forum (serif.com)
  4. I noticed this on the iPad version also. On the macOS version they don't appear as overexposed (at least in my limited test cases, guessing this is because Apple updated their RAW engine in macOS with the latest Big Sur 11.1 update).
  5. Not sure if it will help, but I noticed that this happens consistently after a fresh reboot and so I decided to do a few reboots and then launch Affinity Designer and Photo after the system rebooted. Both of them were very slow, sometimes taking >10 seconds before the application started up. Subsequently launches are much faster (1-2 seconds). As soon as I rebooted, the first launch was really slow again. I kicked off Activity Monitor and noticed that SYSPOLICYD was chowing on the CPU on that first launch of each and it kicked in right as I clicked on the application in the dock. Not sure if this will give you another clue to help determine the source of the problem. Subsequent launches do not appear to trigger SYSPOLICYD like the first launch.
  6. Ditto here. VERY slow startup for both Photo and Designer on both Catalina and Big Sur.
  7. Wondering about this also. Cannot get clean SVG files for export to TinkerCAD (just imports the vector all chopped up) or Blender (imports better, but still has problems).
  8. Thanks Callum. The popups aren't a super huge deal, they just kind of stuck out once everything else went dark and I wanted to point it out. Appreciate your reply.
  9. You should be able to fix the sort order in the iCloud Drive folder. If you right click while inside this view and select "Show View Options" you may find that Group By is not set to None. I had this happen with one of my folders and it causes things to not behave or work like you want.
  10. Wow! I post a simple question, with no implied urgency, and get a snarky, insulting reply. I own ALL of the Affinity products on both macOS and iOS and am very happy with all of them and have every right to ask a simple question without getting insulted.
  11. Will full support for macOS Mojave dark mode be enabled in the Affinity apps? I know they can be set to dark, but some UI elements still come up as light... like the File Open, Save As and Print Popups to name a few.
  12. You rock! Was just looking for some good pencils to use with new Wacom tablet.
  13. I figured out how to resolve it. The fix is on the macOS side. It looks like information about the folders is cached and somewhere along the way Affinity probably misconfigured the folders (after looking through the forums, it looks like these folders at some point would both go to Affinity Photo, but that was resolved later by the developers). Since I have been using both Affinity programs since the day they were launched, I probably had some remnants of this somewhere that was hosing my iMac and MacBook. Steps I followed (use at your own risk): - Go into iCloud settings and turn off Affinity Designer and Affinity Photo in the iCloud Drive settings. This DOES NOT delete your files from iCloud. - Go to ~/Application Support/CloudDocs/session and then delete these files and folders to the trash: 6LVTQB9699.com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner (folder) iCloud.com.seriflabs.affinityphoto (folder) 6LVTQB9699.com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner.plist (file) iCloud.com.seriflabs.affinityphoto.plist (file) This DOES NOT delete your files from iCloud or impact the Affinity software or settings, it only gets rid of details related to icons and application references for the special App Library folder on your macOS. - Reboot. - Go into iCloud settings and turn both Affinity Designer and Photo back on. - Launch Designer and Photo. - Check the iCloud Drive folder and the directories should be correctly setup. Hope this helps anyone else who has this bizarre problem.
  14. I only use macOS/iOS for this software. At work I use Windows, so I have an occasional brain fart and slip in the word directory now and then. LOL
