  1. Update: I decided to make a different folder on iCloud for my Affinity Designer files. The new directory is called Affinity Designer SRB, and I copied the same four subdirectories and their contents into the new directory. Then I checked my iPhone and iPad - all files immediately showed up in both directories. But not on the PC. There were two of the for subdirectories showing in the original Affinity Designer folder as before, and there are two in the new directory. One is the same and has the same two files in it - but the other is different - its one of the two that were
  2. I duplicated a complex set of shapes (a house) and attempted to use the add function on the duplicate. Designer immediately crashed and disappeared. Version 1.8.0 on the first iPad Pro 12.9”. I closed all other apps and the crash still occurs. update: 1.8.2 still crashes. Screen recording attached. Hit the “add” button; boom. IMG_3264.MP4
  3. i disabled Photos and bookmarks and stopped all of the iCloud processes, then restarted iCloud. That didn't help. Then I rebooted my PC and made sure Photos and bookmarks were still disabled. No change. The only thing I notice is that iCloud Drive seems stuck on downloading 13 files. It went from 83 to 13 quickly, but hasn't changed in a couple of hours. The Udemy directory that I'm missing has 75 files in it, and I can manually download them because the Udemy directory does show up on the iCloud Drive page if I open it in Chrome, so I don't think there's anything wrong with t
  4. I'm having an odd problem - I'm not sure if it's iCloud itself or something related to Designer. Here's the issue: I took a Udemy class on my iPad. I created a subfolder under the iCloud Drive\Affinity Designer called Udemy [so iCloud Drive\Affinity Designer\Udemy] and stored all of my files in there. That worked fine on my iPad, and I could see and work with the files on my Mac just fine. On my PC, however, the iCloud Drive\Affinity Designer folder is there, with a couple of other subdirectories that I created from my PC (those also appear on my iPad and my Mac), but the

  6. So you don't see any difference between 1.8 and 1.7.3?
  7. Since Apple Photos doesn’t support layers, I would be shocked if it worked otherwise. of course, you have the alternative of using the Share command to save a new jpg back to Apple Photos and the Save command to save the Affinity layers file to, for example, iCloud.
  8. I’m pretty sure Affinity does continue to work on their interface to Apple Photos, as they did not claim to have fixed in in their release notes for version 1.8.1. Serif has also stated that Apple is not being overly helpful by not documenting changes that they made in Version 13. Although I haven’t tested them yet, they’ve also released at least a couple of beta versions of version 8.2.
  9. Just out of curiosity, did you check and see whether Affinity stored one or more files on your Mac, as you described in an earlier post?
  10. This is NOT what I’m getting. If I right click on an image in Apple Photos and click on Edit With Affinity Photo, I can make complex changes in Affinity. If I click File->Save without having flattened the document, Affinity prompts my to Save as Flattened. If I do, and then quit Affinity, the edited picture shows up in Apple Photos. If I try to edit it there, I still have the option to Revert to Original. in summary, the Edit in extension works if you first flatten the image, then save it, then quit Affinity. The edit with method works and prompts you to save as flattened before
  11. I can confirm that this is exactly what happens on my MacBook Air. Except for the ON1 part; I don’t have that.
  12. I agree with John; here’s my more wordy version: I don’t have Lightroom, but I’ve seen LR’s radial filter used in a Simon Foster class on the Nik Collection on Udemy. The radial filter appeared to be an elliptical shape on top of a layer that one could use to control aspects of the layer such as exposure, etc. In Affinity, one could simply create an ellipse of the desired size with no stroke and a white-black gradient fill. Then rasterize the ellipse into a mask, and apply yer mask to any adjustment layer or group of layers that you desire. if you want to use the ellipse to
  13. I’ve given this subject some thought, and I’m in the DAM-only (option 2) camp. These are my basic requirements for a DAM: It should support hierarchical user-defined keyword tags. I do NOT require that the software automatically recognizes people. I would rather define my own people tags In my own hierarchy - it can be family based or place/experience based (I.e. “friends from college”, etc.) I find it easier to just define my own people tags and tag people myself, instead of filling in just the ones that the program doesn’t recognize or gets wrong. It would be cool if a person co
  14. SO stranger and stranger.... 1. Apple DNG files work fine. 2. The DNG files I'm having trouble with came from a class on the NIK Collection on Udemy. I don't know what kind of camera created them. But if you open a directory with any of those files in it, the Windows 10 file Explorer crashes. a. If you try to restart the file explorer, it's still pointing at the same directory, so it crashes again. b. I can start the file explorer with a command line command "explorer.exe /". The "/" moves the directory up a level, so the file explorer will remain up (unless yo
