  1. Hi Walt! As I mentioned in my original post, I use local storage (e.g. internal PC SSD/HDD and external USB SSD/HDD) directly connected to my PC; no cloud storage such as OneDrive. I saw the other thread regarding the issues you mentioned with OneDrive but found nothing when the problem happens with storage connected directly to the PC. Thus this thread. I noticed the issue after the update to the current version of Designer. As I mentioned earlier, the problem also happens with the current Photo version. I have not yet worked with the current version of Publisher. - Lowe
  2. Since the update to the most recent version (, Designer thumbnails no longer appear in Windows Explorer; just icons. (Seems to be the same with Photo. Have not yet checked Publisher.) Affinity files are being saved to local storage (e.g. internal PC SSD/HDD and external USB SSD/HDD). "Save thumbnails with documents" in Preferences is "checked". Anyone else with this [minor] problem? My PC Processor: AMD Ryzen 7 4700U with Radeon Graphics Installed RAM: 16.0 GB OS: Win10 64-bit
  3. Thanks! That explains why the installer installed as a separate installation to the retail version. (Wow! That last sentence was a mouthful with the word "install" used 3 different ways.)
  4. App crashes when the dialog box... ----- Close Document <filename.afphoto> has been modified. The document is about to close, would you like to save your changes? [Yes] [No] [Cancel] ----- ...appears and "Yes" is clicked on. It looks like the modified file is saved and the dialog box disappears. After the dialog box is gone, the empty Photo app's window closes after a second or so (i.e. app crashes). This appears to happen with any modifications I make (e.g. resize document) to an afphoto file. The Photo app does not appear to crash if an afphoto file is saved (e.g. with "File > Save/Save as") before closing it. At first I thought the problem was because the afphoto file was on an external USB HDD. The crash also occurs when working on an afphoto file on the PC's internal HDD.
  5. I think I've found the issue! The A-Photo file (that kept "Open folder in Explorer" from working properly) had a file name that included a comma (","). After removing that character from the file name, "Open folder in Explorer" functioned again, whether I opened the file via drag-and-drop from File Explorer, "Open" command, or "Open recent" command. I will note though, the "Open folder in Explorer" command worked in previous 1.7beta releases with filenames that included the comma character. At least that's what I remember.
  6. I first thought the problem lay with dragging an A-Photo file from Win Explorer to A-Photo app window to open it. But I still experience the same problem when I open an A-Photo file using the "File > Open" or "File > Open recent" commands. I've made sure that A-Photo is not on my anti-virus apps "block list".
  7. The command, "File > Open folder in Explorer", no longer opens File Explorer at the location of the Affinity Photo file currently being worked on. This worked in previous 1.7 beta versions.
  8. I, too, would also like to see this functionality.
  9. Until (or if) a bitmap tracing function is added to A-Designer, I use Inkscape's "Trace bitmap" function. It works reasonably well for my needs. This how I use that function... 1. Import bitmap into Inkscape. The higher the bitmap's resolution, the better. 2. Select the bitmap then run "Trace bitmap." The function's basic settings work fine in general for my needs. 3. Save the trace in Inkscape's native vectore file format, SVG. 4. Open/import the SVG in A-Designer. Inkscape website: https://inkscape.org/ (Current stable version: 0.92.4) In addition to using Inkscape vector files in A-Designer, I use them in laser engraving, CNC wood engraving, and CNC milling of aluminum and steel parts.
  10. Nothing happened when I used the key combination with artistic or frame text.
  11. Okey dokey! Aber dafür ist Geduld angesagt. MFG -- Lowe
  12. I was an early adopter of Affinity Photo (APhot) and Affinity Designer (ADsgn). I've completely moved my stock photo image processing to APhot. Although most of my vector work is now done in ADsgn, I still use DrawPlus X8 for functions still not present in ADsgn—such as warp mesh. The main aspect of my freelance work, however, is document design and page layout. PagePlus X9 continues to be my workhorse in this area until Affinity Publisher (APub) arrives. How would I go about becoming a beta tester for APub? I recently finished designing and typesetting a book for a client in PagePlus X9. I'm thinking that I could use the photos, illustrations, and copy from this project in recreating the book design in APub. Thanks for two great apps in APhot & ADsgn. And thanks in advance for working on getting APub out of the gate. -- Lowe
