    All the Styles are stored in a file called objectstyles.propcol which can be found here: /Users/{your username}/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinityphoto/Data/Library/Application Support/user/.
    It's not possible to edit this file, sorry. I would add a Feature Request as i'm sure other users would find it useful to better manage their styles.

    FredLarson got a reaction from Busenitz in Managing Style Categories   
    I had created several styles and then decided to clean up my styles by recategorizing them into new categories. I ended up having to create new objects, apply my existing styles to them, create new styles in the new categories that I had created, and then delete the old styles from the default categories.
    I tried to find out where Affinity Designer stores the styles on my disk but was unsuccessful. I was hoping I could solve the problem at the Finder. So where are the styles stored and can they be edited? If not, I will add a feature request to be able to move styles between categories. Thanks...

    FredLarson reacted to MEB in Stroke is a in points and I want pixels : How to change   
    Hi mcl,
    Go to Affinity Designer ▸ Preferences..., User Interface section and uncheck Show lines in points.
    You can also adjust slightly the UI Gamma in the same panel.
