    Du ertränkst uns wahrlich in Informationen!
    Um das Problem „umgehend“ zu klären, wären Minimalinformationen nicht unbedingt hinderlich:
    Welches Betriebssystem? Welche Version von Photo und Publisher? Was genau heißt „hängt sich auf“? Fehlermeldung? Und, und, und … Wenn du „Geld zurück“ willst, sollte man zunächst mal wissen, in welchem Store du die Apps für welches Bertriebssystem gekauft hast.

    Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums  
    If you find software that automatically does this, then I have 85% of the pictures ever taken of my wife that need correcting for perfectly timed blinks. It's a running joke that she seems to have slept through most of the first 20 years of our relationship (after which we gave up trying to get a good shot).

    Reading a post doesn't change the fact that its going straight to a BSOD on save. Try being helpful please.

    Not true. The so-called BSOD or "blue screen of death" (technically a system stop error) occurs only when the OS itself encounters a fatal error it cannot recover from. There are only a few things that can cause that: hardware issues (like defective RAM or a malfunctioning GPU or CPU), faulty hardware drivers, or issues in the low-level software processes running in the Windows hybrid kernel.
    Application level software cannot be the direct cause of any of these things regardless of whatever calls they might make, in part because as long as the OS & the hardware is functioning properly, there is no way for the calls applications make to access low level processes directly. However, if for any reason the OS or its hardware is not all functioning properly, then any number of 'generic' calls that involve low level processes can leave the system in an unstable state, including calls an application might make prior to the one that triggers the fatal error. Since different application workflows make calls in different sequences & they do not all make the same calls, it is entirely possible that only one or a few applications will trigger the BSOD.

    Welcome to the Affinity forums.
    I have to start by saying I am not a Mac owner/user but I have received emails from at least two different manufacturers of audio software and VSTis asking that Mac users do not download and install Catalina because of "known incompatibilities/problems".   I wonder whether Affinity apps are similarly affected?

    If you think, the behaviour of Serif is „ugly and unfriendly“ – follow your words and don‘t purchase their products! This is simply a matter of self-respect. Don‘t you think, it is sort of arrogant, to explain Serif, how they should manage their business?

    Both methods of editing in AP from Photos worked until I loaded Catalina Beta. Now they don't. I am considering a complete clean install when they release Catalina as the official OS. Have Affinity made any progress yet or I may have to consider dumping AP.

    Don't act like you know more then a developer/designer.
    Not every workflow is the same and I don't have any problems. Either you change your workflow or deal with it.
    Not every user fault is a designer/developer flaw.

    We actually had some good come out of the misunderstanding. Made us go buy the whole suite that we've been wanting to do for a while already, because you know we were on that site already anyway so why not make it happen once?  & really $50 per app is not bad at all for such great products!

    @StephenBooth_uk
    Sorry, but I don't agree. 
    IMO, @mac_heibu was making a number of very valid points based on the fact that Serif made the decision in the very early stages of the development of the whole Affinity range that each app should be able to operate on both Windows and Mac platforms but that users should be required to pay the extremely reasonable price for a licence for each operating system.  Most Affinity app purchasers will require/use only one OS licence since I suspect the majority of users do NOT own/use both Windows and Mac; perhaps rather more may use the iPad versions but these are extremely competitively priced and to be able to use one app on iPad alongside either its Windows or Mac equivalent for a one-off UK price of less than £70 is a real bargain!  Even the less than £100 to buy each app for both Windows and Mac stands very favourably in comparison with the subscription-only model of its famous competitor.

    A good balanced reply Brad methinks. Like others on here I am also a software engineer (mostly embedded for 30 years but lately snuck into C# XAML UI .. old dogs and new tricks hey) and yes you are right just because a code base as a common design for different operating system the implementation for different OS and the corresponding UI doesn't happen by magic and there then is maintaining said different platforms not to mention the heaps of testing in development etc. I have both Affinity Photo and Designer for Mac but I would be happy to purchase a licence for an iPad if I had one ... saving pennies ... I rather fancy using an Apple pencil too, I think given the price of the hardware Affinity licences are good value.

    <eyeroll> If we're going to down the silly analogy road, Serif's position is more like "You bought this to read on Kindle, if you want to read it on Apple Books you need to buy it again," than it is about the different Kindle devices.
    I can appreciate that some people may get surprised by the "license per platform model" and may even hate (intentionally strong word chosen) such a model but even in a perfect development world, it takes different resources to create and maintain a substantial part of the application on each platform. All the math in the world that may be in common code everywhere the Affinity apps reside doesn't make it appear magically through a user interface. It doesn't make it magically compatible (and accurate) with different versions of Windows, macOS, and iPadOS (nee iOS).
    A for-profit entity has a choice of spreading those development costs across all platforms (making each one more expensive to subsidize the others) or to allow (for some part) each platform to earn its own keep. Both approaches have pros and cons and when there's an uproar over having to deal with separate licenses at a cumulative cost that still is less than that of the competition, that uproar can arguably be likened to whining more than constructive market and user feedback.
    If you don't want to support Serif's business model, make your voice heard to them then go spend a greater amount money on the competition, if that's what you need to do. Serif's value proposition is not misleading nor is it out of place in the market.

    Welcome to the Affinity forums.
    I'm not a Mac owner but my understanding is that you log into your Mac App Store account, ensuring you use the same log-in details as you used for your original purchase, and you should find your Affinity app (which one, by the way?) listed and available to download and install.  I seem to remember one suggestion made to other users who have experienced problems redownloading from both the Windows and Mac App Stores to try logging out and then logging back in if the needed app is not initially listed.

    Windows and macOS are different operating Systems. Applications for one of these systems can‘t run on the other system. So you need 2 applications, one for Windows, one for macOS. And since both apps need to be coded, there are investments for both, which you have to pay. And, sincerely: The app is ridiculously cheap regarding its capabilities. If someone doesn‘t recognize this, well, the Affinity products are definitely not the right tools for this person.

    So the mod locked Expand Stroke post, and posted some "ultra legit" results of CorelDRAW and Illustrator in comparison as a final word. So here's a video where I doodle in Affinity Designer, try to expand the stroke then copy the same thing to Ilustrator and expand it.
    Just doing my part, exposing your lies and lack of responsibility.

    Unfortuntelay there seems to be a culture on these forums of making silly comments and general rudeness to a simple question or feature request - so if people insist on posting sarcastic replies with rude undertones then I will reply in the same manner ... I have experienced many time rudness  and an ''attitude' on these forums, so the idea you are all polite on here is a nonsense ....
