  1. In my experience when you click on the Export button you are presented with a Save dialog that allows you to specify an export folder. Although you can specify a folder name as you've showed, it will be relative to the folder you choose with that Save dialog. That is, if you specify fold1\background.png and then click Export, and specify c:\Folder in the Save dialog, your file will be exported to c:\Folder\fold1\background.png because the export is constrained by the location you chose on the Save dialog.
  2. I think that any changes to the history count as a modification, and thus cause that prompt. I have noticed something like this this with another program, where I could open a file, print it, and discovered that the act of specifying the print options counted as a modification.
  3. Take a look at the History panel before and after the Export and before closing. That should show you what the application thinks has changed.
  4. I can't explain why Affinity wants to have a file it can write to, but the error message seems to indicate that (for some reason) it's a requirement.
  5. You might be interested in this thread which points out that the standard TIFF format does not support layers.
  6. Thanks for the clarification, Chris.
  7. Correct. Which would make it read-only, which is what the error message was complaining about.
  8. For what it's worth, I just tried that and it worked fine for me. There have been other reports of this, but it seems to depend on something additional that is not being described, or possibly on some other software installed on the reporters' systems?
  9. Or is he referring to the empty Macro studio?
  10. I do not see a Reset Fonts in my Windows Affinity Designer. As this is the second time I've seen a moderator mention that in the Bugs on Windows forum, I'm curious where it's hiding, or if that's really only a Mac preference?
  11. Generally speaking, if you have a raw file there are some things you would do in the Develop persona, then you would push the Develop button, and then you would finish in the Photo persona. The tools in the Develop persona are specialized for that initial processing of a raw file. The tools in the Photo persona are more general. Yes, Save will save the file as an Affinity Photo file. To save in a different format (jpeg, tif, etc.) you would use the Export function, via File Export or via the Export persona. The raw file is not modified in any way.
  12. I wonder if you could open it as a separate document and then Assign the appropriate profile, then copy/paste it into the target document?
  13. I don't know if there's a way to create a test strip like that. However, have you tried adding a Soft Proof Adjustment layer? That should let you preview what your print will look like. If you don't like the look, then you can apply other adjustments to get it right, then (important!) hide or delete the Soft Proof layer, then print.
  14. The System Palette option is not available on Windows.
  15. Interesting. Following your steps I get the same behavior. An additional point: when tabbing to the second value (your step 5) the field is highlighted with a dotted border. But when tabbing to the 3rd value (step 6) it's highlighted with a thin solid blue border.
