  1. It's been two days now I've been trying to open my files. Opening does no longer work. Same with the iPad version, which coincidentally is also 1.8. Same with Affinity Photo. Some files do, some no longer do. But I need to open these files. It gets stuck loading forever. Nothing happens. I've left it for up to two hours to see if it would change. It doesn't. There is no feedback either. I tried copying the file, renaming it, nothing. Please make Affinity Designer reliable. I always have to deal with issues Loading, Saving, or simply not being able to save (like on the iPad, launch-day issue still not resolved). It's critical to get these operations right.
  2. @MEB Today I lost hours of work because of this issue. Apparently if you open a document from Affinity Designer on iPad, from iCloud, and save a million times, it won't be saved at all. It doesn't seem to go to the original iCloud file. Nor anywhere. I closed my document to see if this will push it to the cloud. Nope. It was closed to oblivion. Saving doesn't work. We pay premium for Affinity Designer, Photo separately, iPad version separately. And we don't have a reliable Save button. Please take this more seriously.
  3. @MEB Here's a bit more info, maybe it helps debugging it. This time I created the document on Affinity Designer for iPad. Saved it on iCloud root folder, since Affinity folders cannot be saved to. Moved the file using my Mac's Finder into subfolder inside the Affinity Designer iCloud folder. Double click to open the file on the Finder, opens on Affinity Photo. ⌘I to inspect the file, and it says - Open with: "Affinity Photo (1.6.7)" I change it to "Affinity Designer (1.6.1)" It immediately resets back to "Affinity Photo (1.6.7)". It won't budge. I try ⌥ Right Click on the file, Always open with > Affinity Designer It opens on Designer, but it will be opened by Affinity Photo next time. The default did not change. This doesn't affect other .afdesign files created in either of my Macs. I feel the system thinks Affinity Photo owns both iCloud folders, specially given they both have the same icon. Please help, my workflow is very complicated at the moment and often end up editing a file that doesn't get updated on the other side, having to manually merge changes later. Thank you!
  4. Great, thanks. I'd like to contribute to the report (maybe). On Desktop, historically, my Affinity Designer folder has looked like an Affinity Photo folder. Even if I remove the folder and have Designer create it again, it still picks up that icon. Not sure if it means anything or if it's related but there you go!
  5. Hi there. I'm using Affinity Designer for iPad. For some reason I can save in any iCloud folder from my iPad, EXCEPT in the Affinity Designer folder one. I can browse subfolders, but the top right Add button remains greyed out. This folder happens to be where I keep all .afdesign documents in desktop. I would imagine that's the one place where I should be able to do so. So it's been very difficult transferring copies from one side to another every time I make a change, sending files via other mediums and replacing them on desktop. Beats the purpose of iCloud. Hope this is a temporary bug and not a feature. I'd appreciate any clarification.
  6. Hi there. Ever since I got a new iMac I started to see this issue with Affinity Designer on which the color picker gets the wrong color, always. As if it's working on a different color profile of sorts. This issue can be seen in this video:https://cl.ly/d6cda708b37c Basically: Select an object Color pick the color of the object Apply the picked color back to the same object The color is slightly different (shouldn't, I picked it from the same source) I can reproduce this in a blank new document with a single object as well, so it's definitely not a layer problem (i.e: 99% opacity, non-Normal blending, etc...) Please help! Also thanks for making the best designer app I used in 15+ years P.S: Using latest stable Affinity Designer and macOS, although issue was present before Mojave.
  7. Hello all. So in the past month I've been getting about 10+ crashes a day with Affinity. What I've narrowed it down to is the following: How to reproduce: If you take an Artboard, and you try to duplicate it or change it's XY position, if any of the Symbols in the whole document are "corrupted", it will crash Affinity Designer. Note the Symbol does not have to be contained in the related Artboard for the App to crash. Empty Artboards also crash the App on moving/duplicating. Expected behavior: No crash. Notes: There is no way to tell which Symbol is corrupted, except by using the Detach button on each Symbol and trying to duplicate the parent, then writing down if it crashes or not. Rinse and repeat. Idea on what a corrupted Symbol might be: I think this may have to do with Symbols containing resized Pixel-type layers, but can't confirm 100%. Workaround: The only workaround so far is detaching all Symbols when copying, then replacing them again one by one. Please fix this, it is becoming really frustrating to use my favorite and only design tool, and am constantly loosing progress which is never fun. Thank you.
  8. Hello there. With v1.5.5, my documents are now at half the zoom size as they would normally be. The document looks 50% smaller, even if all dimensions when inspecting are fine. It means I have to go to 200% to see them in their original size. If I measure my Artboard using OS X screen capture tool (cmd + shift + 4) the dimensions of my Artboard at 200% zoom are actually 1:1 with the screen. Which doesn't make any sense (100px should be 200px at 200% zoom, right?). This has affected all of the documents I can tell so far. Document settings: 72 DPI, 'Actual Size' Zoom: Default. It's workable but misleading, and I have to always go back to 200% zoom instead of 100% to see things 1:1. Thanks!
  9. I'm an elder at these forums! I guess I need to be more active, ha Gotcha, glad to hear.
  10. I seem to be able to get Affinity Designer stuck 100% of times when: - Select the Art Text Tool - Click an existing Art Text Object, which will select it and allow me to type in it. - Press Esc (I just wanted to select it, not change it) - Press Copy so I can copy the object, not the text. - Affinity will get stuck in an endless beach ball with CPU usage and heat going crazy high. Cheers!
  11. Since there is no update on this issue, I'd like to necro bump this. The whole UI is too dark to have such bright surface surrounding the document. Please let us toggle a full dark mode or something while using Artboards! The current workaround is to draw a huge rectangle, colour it dark grey, and then lock it so I can't accidentally click it. It just feels odd I gotta extend the UI's theme manually.
