  1. Problem solved, legally! While reading the Ts&Cs of the iTunes store agreement, I came upon this: a. Scope of License: Licensor grants to you a nontransferable license to use the Licensed Application on any Apple-branded products that you own or control and as permitted by the Usage Rules. [Emphasis added] Since "any" would include both Macs I now own, I signed into the iTunes store from my second Mac, and saw that "Install" was available for Affinity Photo. I clicked on "install" and, lo and behold, version 1.5.2 replaced the old version, and I now have 1.5.2 on both computers. My bad for not having realized this before.
  2. So, I could loan my other Mac (for which I purchased Affinity Photo) to someone else, while still retaining ownership--in perpetuity or even just for an hour-- and I guess I've violated the license agreement during that time. I hope Affinity doesn't track me down!!
  3. Well, I haven't read the fine print of the licensing agreement, so I won't dispute R C-R on this. There may be some legal distinction between 1) transferring a license to someone else and 2) selling a computer with the license to another person (my situation), but that's not to be litigated here. Still, many other programs have a "check for updates" feature that doesn't require proof that I'm still the person who bought the original program. That said, the used Mac I bought also had a full Microsoft Office license, and that set of programs still works even though I suppose the license was effectively "transferred" to me.
  4. I purchased a Mac with Affinity Photo 1.4.1 installed, and I'd like to get version 1.5. But, 1.4.1 was installed under the previous owner's Apple ID, which I don't have of course, so I can't upgrade. How can I get the upgrade I'm entitled to?
  5. +1 one this post. Even better yet, do as many other trials do--allow continued use of the trial, but no saving of files permitted. I'm working my way through the tutorials, but my 10-day trial has expired, and I'm still not 100% sure I want to replace Photoshop Elements with Affinity Photo. It also appears you can't just purchase a license key and then enter it in the program. A full reinstallation appears necessary.
  6. Thanks! The speed with which bugs are dealt with is impressive! I look forward to the beta release.
  7. This is on a mid-2017 MacBook Pro with a Touchbar. When using the Selection Brush tool, the Touchbar can be used to to change the width of the tool's circle. But, when sliding the Touchbar slider, the circle's diameter does not change until you actually click the tool, even though the Width box's number does change with the Touchbar. In other words, with the brush's circle somewhere on the screen, you would expect the width to change as the Touchbar slider moves, but it doesn't.
