  1. Thank you very much, Walt. I knew I purchased it, even the book, but I couldn't remember the details. Appreciate your help. Johnn R
  2. I saved the sign-in to Affinity Forums, but I can't show proof of my AP purchase. Is there a way to recover my original purchase info on Affinity Photo? I have just purchased Affinity Designer through Apple App Store. But can't figure out how to sign in and don't want to create a double sign into my Affinity Photo app.
  3. I backup on three devices plus time machine, none of the devices have the full documents. All are 160+-bytes.
  4. This is on a 19,1 iMac, Catalina 10.15.4 I estimate 80 to 90% are these now 160 byte files. They are not links, or aliases. They are the files I have continued to backup for several years now. They show generic icons. The only clue I will know for the future is that maybe, if the file loses its image icon for the generic, its gone. How do I know if the data is ever lost on new work, the only clue I guess is the generic icon. I do not know when or why this happened.
  5. Somewhere, back aways, I lost all the data in the files. The files are not aliases, but they are only avg 160 bytes large now. I have no idea how this happened. But the clue I missed is that the files lost the icon image of the file and assumed the generic icon of either app. But I don't know why this has happened OR WHY?
  6. Here are typical files from my backups that refuse to open saying: they are not recognized as Affinity or Photoshop docs. Can anyone open them? The New Yorker Salinger.psd 1987.afphoto
  7. I've been keeping backups of work I created w CS5, until this week I am told they can no longer be opened by Photoshop later versions. Can Affinity somehow open them? No luck so far. What is the point of backing up my work if after two years nothing is compatible w it? I have a ton of work I created and now, no way to open it. I can't get Affinity Photo to open any documents I created in Affinity Photo recently. Does backing these Affinity Photo documents into iCloud, strip them of identities they need to reopen in Affinity Photo, because even Affinity Photo documents will not open n
  8. I have searched through the forum for ways to import my old items before Affinity Photo 1.7.2. I saw searching for the file raster_brushes.propcol, and somehow importing. I saw drop old. asl brushes files onto the Affinity Photo app icon. But nothing has worked. Then I heard to revert to Affinity Photo 1.7.1. To me, it's like kicking a dead mule to get up the hill. I've spent the first year with Affinity Photo UNABLE to DRAW A STRAIGHT LINE, unless I skillfully bump+drag+shift, whatever. So I recently got that ability back, but I get the ability to import items taken away. Then try to rem
  9. Does anyone know how to get rid of the excess area of the original image when drug into another document layer. The problem is I can't figure a way to delete the unused area of each layer. Is there a way to CROP the ENTIRE DOCUMENT and delete all the huge bulky crap that is slowing down my Affinity Photo document. If I rasterize the new layer, the entire stupid unused extra is rasterized. What the heck do I need the huge extra waste to ride w my document? I don't, its a waste of my document storage.
  10. Affinity Photo 7 - Upgraded to 7 in Mojave. Now how do I transfer all my styles and cropping setting. It's a shame that this isn't considered when upgrading the Photo software.
  11. Yes, this is the how to I was searching for. Thank you. This the second time I have lost its location. Maybe I'll bookmark this time.
  12. There was an Affinity created step by step, explaining each pref selection. It is in hiding. Or moved.
  13. I want the instructions for what are best settings, I’ve see this before, it says how to set best prefs
