  1. @hilltop: see my other post regarding being unable to update. Both are resolved after a reboot, see post above. Thank you.
  2. Well, well well. Again Microsoft played it's mastercard. After a restart, all instability is gone... Coming from Linux, restarts are just so... we'll I do not know, they do not make sense. Sorry for stirring up the air here.
  3. Well, I typically sync my app-data folders (in the profile directory and program data) to a network drive just in case. So, I will check what I will need. Thanks for the help.
  4. Hi I am using Affinity on Windows Desktop and purchased it directly at Affinity (all of them). I will try backing up the app folders to see if I can do a disaster recovery. Thank you
  5. Currently I am working with one. It is based on a flyer template I have used for other flyers with designer and there it worked well. It loads well and I can do bunch of other stuff with it - even using effects on layers. As soon as I click on the first layer, it crashes. The file is rather large (80MB) and I'd rather not share it openly in the forum (1. it would be embarassing and 2. well it is a company file...). I tried to copy it into designer - same problem. Any ideas how to trace the problem? I could probably send it hidden, don't know how that works.
  6. I just found when I tried to work with that file in Designer I have the same proble: As soon as I click on any layer, it freezes, too! Designer is running on 1.7.2 (as there the update worked). Help!Help!
  7. Hi I try to work with Publisher 1.7.1 however, it is practially impossible. As soon as I click on any layer it freezes completely. Reproducible. Also, after some manipulation of graphics, it freezes. I can save (as long as I do not touch the layers) the graphics, but immediately afterwards it freezes. Help!
  8. Hi I would like to back up my templates etc. of Affinity Software. What to I have to copy to make sure that I do not loose and template (e.g. raw templates) I made? And macros? Thank you.
  9. Hi When I try to update Affinity Publisher with the current 1.7.2 version (downloaded twice to make sure that it is complete), I only get the message "Fehler beim Setup" (error in setup). No upgrade to 1.7.2 possible. Any recommendation to work around this? Thanks
  10. I am using Affinit * 1.7.2 (all three of them) and all show the same behaviour. I cannot save a *.af* file to any network drive, only locally. Export etc. works fine. So, the problem is definetly still persisting.
  11. I see from the other thread that it seems that only Affinity consideres it as "feature" while everybody else considers it as "bug". Well, I will go 100% with the "bug" one, as there are so many software (even under windows) that rely seriously on network access and they all work fine, that a rather simple graphics manipulation system of the Affinity* software not being able to handle it get very disturbing. So I would really really really suggest to fix this bug. I for myself for in a network centered environement with little or no local space, saving on netwrok drives is mandatory, not option.
  12. I have the same problem working in a Network centered environement with not or extremely little local disc space. I believe this is a severe bug and not justifiably by any "performance" or whatever issues. There are literally hundreds, thousands or even more machines and installations that work fully or partically with partial loading from the network and it operates fine. It is very much concerning that an otherwise so nice software is not able to perform such a basic task.
  13. Hi, whenever I open a JPEG (from the network), edit it and safe as Affinity-Photo, I cannot do this into an network folder. I always get "not writeable". Same happens with Designer. I have to save it to a local drive and move it. Saving as JPEG, Exporting etc. works without any problems, it is only the native formats where it does not work. Cheers.
  14. Hi When I have a batch process (Macro: Do Auto Color, Tone Correction, Sharpness, White Correction etc.) over a large amount of JPGs, Photo eats up a significant amount of memory and swaps until disk is full, then crashes. With 16GB Ram it uses up 90GB on the disc, with 64GB Memory it just takes longer to crash. I starts to crash reproducibly at ca. 1000 files on the weaker machine. I often use automated processes on a large amount of files, so this is a significant problem for me.
  15. @RCR sorry, here it shows just a dummy and does not display them. I downloaded the latest Windows 64bit Version and installed it. Do you have to configure it somewhere so that it shows afphoto files?
  16. @R-C-R sorry, it was late and I was tired. XnViewMP I mean.
  17. yes sorry. Quick translation from the german version i am using to the english in this forum... preset. maybe. yes. sorry.
  18. BTW: XnMedia does not open the afphoto files either. So I do not see any advance to irfanview...
  19. Well, you know how it is with old dogs and new tricks... It took me aloong time to gather all the tools I work regularily with (especially under windows, as it is way more unconfortable as Linux) and actually I never liked XnView much. So I'll have a look at XnView, but still, irfanview... well
  20. Hi I am using irfanview for browsing through my photos under Windows. Unfortunately irfanview does not show aphoto (or other affinity) files. Would it be possible to create a plugin for irfanview, so that I can use it to browse the photos better? Thank you.
  21. Hi I generate for each set of photos a template. When I work then on multiple raws, the correct template is selected for all raws. However it is not applied. I have to select it manually again to apply it. Secondly, it would be good if a template including all settings can be included (tone, corrections, lens etc.), this would make workflow a lot faster and easier. Last but not least, a batch processing for a number of raws with given settings would be higly apreaciated. As I often have a number of similar raws that are treated identical, this would be incredibly helpful. Thanks.
  22. The Temp directory is empty. However, I meanwhile restartet my computer (win 10) and it works again. I hate when Windows does this to me, as with my Linux machines I only have to reboot a few times a year if at all... So thanks for all you help.
  23. Shure, although I do not see what you wish to see. looks normal but when you click on the adjustments nothing happens... which cannot be shown, obivously. I really have no idea how this could happen...
