  1. One thing that has always bugged me about Designer is if I open a different file type, such as an SVG and Save it, it prompts me to save it as an .afdesign file. No, I'm editing a SVG file, I should be able to just save it without going through Export and thus creating a new file. Trying to use a pipeline for character creation in a 2D animation application, but cannot get it to work because when I export it, it creates a new file thus breaking the link with the animation application. The suggestion is if creating a new file, prompt to save as .afdesign, but if editing a file, save should just save it as that file type.
  2. My system is fine, no other errors. I've run every scan known to man, and a few unknown ones too. Every other application I have works fine, and I have many applications. Only these new affinity apps fail. I re-installed 1.10 and they work flawlessly. I'm done with version 2 until they offer an installation other than the MSIX. One that allows the user to pick an installation location, and be in control of our own systems.
  3. Regardless if the installer tries to start it, or I try to start it via the Start Menu or the desktop shortcut, I get the exact same error. There does not seem to be anything in the event viewer when it does this.
  4. No, it automatically tries to start after installing. As I said, I had it installed, but uninstalled it. After it was uninstalled, I re-installed it. At the end of the installation, it tries to start it and this error appears. if I attempt to start it from the Start menu or the desktop shortcut, I get the same exact error.
  5. I had it installed and it was working ok, but because it didn't offer any installation options (such as installed location), it installed on my C:\, which was running low on drive space. I used EaseUS Partition Master to allocate additional space to my C:\ drive, and the applications stopped working. I uninstalled and re-installed, and now they just will not start at all. Worst installation experience EVER! Going back to Version 1.10 until these issues with version 2.0 are resolved, and a decent installation is provided.
  6. I just came to this forum to see if anyone was reporting issues with Booleans (on PC/Windows)... In the previous version, I was always able to convert my Text to curves, select all the letter shape layers and Boolean them with the Add to get a singular object that I could use in other boolean operations. But now, it behaves irractically. Some "curves" it combines, others it does not. If two letters overlaps, instead of the Add it look like it does an Xor. Here is an example of a text converted to curves, then a couple of the letters (shapes) re-arranged to overlap and then the Add operation on it. The first 2 letters (shapes) Xor'd and the S & q shapes did the Add... What?!?!?! It's very frustrating...
  7. Unfortunately, the batch hack will not work for everyone. The app I'm trying to use to open the Affinity app looks specifically for an EXE and will not accept a batch file.
  8. Yes, I do. And they open fine for me, but I had to do the registry hack in order to even find them. Without that hack, it is doubtful it would work for me. [EDIT] It worked yesterday, but today it doesn't work at all now... Grrrr..... If I had known this was going to be so problematic, I most certainly would not have upgraded. The aliases mentioned above do not work. And while Serif should've come up with a better installation plan, I blame Microsoft. It is them who are hiding files and folders on our very own systems, and implementing "standards" for companies to follow that propagate that inaccessibility.
  9. Unfortunately, while these will allow the start of these respective apps, other apps that need the path to the EXE will not accept these.
  10. So there are several issues... These Affinity apps now appear to install into C:\Program Files\WindowsApps which is a hidden folder that we apparently cannot access, not even on our own systems. Using a Registry hack, I was able to finally look inside that directory to find where the Affinity stuff now installs. I have been able to successfully add these paths to Cartoon Animator and it will open the apps as expected. C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\SerifEuropeLtd.AffinityDesigner2_2.0.0.1640_x64__3cqzy0nppv2rt\App\Designer.exe C:\Program Files\WindowsApps\SerifEuropeLtd.AffinityPhoto2_2.0.0.1640_x64__3cqzy0nppv2rt\App\photo.exe However, my ON1 apps (Effects, Portrait AI, etc...) no longer recognize that Affinity is installed, and it no longer automagically installs as plugins for Affinity Photo. And unfortunately, the registry hack I followed to get access to WindowsApps now breaks all my other ON1 apps, and McAfee is now counting them as viruses. So while the registry hack is my own fault, I still blame serif for making it necessary in order to find the actual executables. Bottom line, I am greatly displeased with Ver 2.0. The batch file and/or shortcut does not work for applications looking for an EXE.
  11. Even after rebooting and trying multiples times, I just now did it again and now it's working... ugh, sometimes I really hate computers... lol
  12. Please see my attached logs. Nothing seems to jump out as an issue other than the Setup Failed in the bottom SetupUI.log Setup.log
  13. I am trying to update my Affinity Photo and Designer to 1.7.3 and the setup fails. No reason given, doesn't even look like it tries, just immediatley a Setup Failed popup on both of them. I've tried just running them, running htem as administrator, nothing seems to work. Windows 7
  14. I never knew this. I always just assumed because the stroke and fill boxes didn't show up on the top toolbar when multiple objects were selected, that meant it wasn't possible. But I used the stroke and color options on the left side toolbar and it did work. So I retract my suggestion, or perhaps revise it to make this a little more obvious somehow. I've been using Affinity Designer for a couple of years, always frustrated thinking I had to set stroke and fill options individually... My own fault I suppose... heh heh heh
  15. Unless there's already a way I haven't found, I'd like to be able to select multiple objects and set their fills and/or strokes all at once. I know styles can be used, but sometimes I just need to make a quick change to several objects stroke width, color, or their fill color and don;t want to go through the hassle of styles.
