    MAS 1.5.2 Install/Import problem

    Never mind. I figured it out after posting. Duh!
  2. Screen Shot 2017-03-26 at 2.49.44 PM.tiff When trying to install .afstyles into MAS 1.5.2 I get message saying the file is not an Affinity document. There was no problem opening the file into earlier versions. Is it that this new version no longer recognizes this file format?
  3. OK, Guys: This is intolerable! A few days ago I posted that suddenly the betas wouldn't open, saying "Requires Retail Version." I had purchased the retail version from the App store, and it was installed and working. It was a major job to get the betas to open again. The latest beta was identified as 1.5.2 (beta 6), but kept coming up as 1.5.2 (beta 5). Today I got a message from Apple that there was an update to the retail version 1.5.1, which was 1.5.2. I installed the update, and the retail app 1.5.2 is working fine. However, since installing the Apple update, the betas will not open. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the retail version from the App Store, moving a copy from Time Machine backups, etc., etc. I love the application, but I am now wondering if I should have gotten involved with it in the first place. If this continues I'll have to find an alternative to AP. Is this fixable, and if so, how? To recap: Retail Version 1.5.2 is installed and working. The betas (none of them) will open.

    UNABLE TO OPEN 1.5.2 (Beta 5)

    Its OK guys. Problem solved.
  5. I purchased and installed 1.5.1 from the app store quite some time ago. I have installed and used all Beta updates since then. Suddenly I can't open any of the Betas. I keep getting a message that the retail version must be installed, and I get bounced to the App Store. The app store shows AP 1.5.1 as previously purchased. I can open it from the app store and from my apps folder, list, etc. It is installed. How do I get back my usable version of AP 1.5.2 (Beta 5)? This is serious guys! What happened?
  6. Apologies? Heck, no. I saw the "hats" and LOL.
  7. ...or you can contact them on their website. They are really good about customer support, before and after sales. I know they would gladly answer any questions you may have. I get all my photo-related gear from them,and have always had great service.
  8. Sorry, Steve, but I'm not aware of the overseas shipping costs. I think B&H has a toll free line, and they can certainly tell you what it would cost. If you would like, I'd be happy to call them for you. Just let me know where in the UK you are located, and I'll forward the info to you.
  9. May be obvious questions, but have you given the battery enough time to charge? Into which port have you inserted the receiver? Have you run "Diagnose?"
  10. I think I'd be happy to, but "cheerful hats?" What are those?
  11. I don't know where you are, but Best Buy has that model on sale right now. I believe you can order it online. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/searchpage.jsp?st=intuos+tablet&_dyncharset=UTF-8&id=pcat17071&type=page&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=&sp=&qp=&list=n&af=true&iht=y&usc=All+Categories&ks=960&keys=keys B&H has it in stock at the same price, also available online. https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1002451-REG/wacom_pth651_intuos_pro_professional_pen.html Happy hunting. :)
  12. Got it! Thanks, Guys. I'm embarrassed . Duh - I guess I never thought beyond drag and drop, which doesn't work. Why I never tried copy/paste, or double clicking, I can't explain, other than for a gross lack of mental capacity. All those years wasted............. What a great place this is. So many folks always ready to help. Thanks again.
  13. Mike: I haven't yet checked the link you sent, but I found a number of sites via Google. It looks like the keystrokes are universal, i.e: Windows and Mac. This is a very extensive website: http://speakingppt.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/wingdings-webdings-character-map-speakingppt.pdf Thanks also for the info as to how to upload to the forum. I don't know why I didn't look there myself.
  14. Thanks, Mike. That is the type of chart in need, but I'm on a Mac, and the variety of Wingdings symbols in the font book is immense. Do you know of a chart for those symbols? I tried to attach a screen shot of some of them, but this forum won't accept any of the usual extensions I tried to use. I guess that is another question I'll have to submit. Thanks again.
  15. Is there a chart or list of which Wingdings symbol is bound to which key on the keyboard? In other words, how do I select one symbol from all of the Wingdings without having to press each key on the keyboard to find it? How do I distinguish the keystrokes for the various groups of Wingdings on the Fonts list? Where can I find a chart or list if such thing exists? Suppose I want to insert a right-facing arrow into a photo I am editing... Thanks for your help.
