  1. So I've run into a conundrum - the Affinity suite of apps that I purchased from the Microsoft Store doesn't appear to have command-line support. This is because those Windows Apps downloaded from the store are sandboxed off away from users. You cannot directly find the `Photo.exe` file from the Explorer (unless you're willing to blow away a lot of permissions). The best I could find on how to start Affinity Photo from the MS Store from the command line is the following: powershell.exe explorer.exe shell:AppsFolder\$(get-appxpackage -name SerifEuropeLtd.AffinityPhoto ^| select -expandproperty PackageFamilyName)!SerifEuropeLtd.AffinityPhoto But that doesn't allow me to pass in any arguments into the Photo executable. There does appear to be a solution though. First - the Affinity Suite of apps could use Command Line Activation. That would basically set up an alias so that users of the command line could send arguments to that exec alias. The apps would just need to update their OnActivated handlers for the new CommandLineLaunch activation kind. Another option could be to create and register a Protocol. This is similar to the Command Line Activation, but now you can have the Affinity apps open based on URL. For example, afphoto:// could open up Photo, and afphoto://file=foo.tif could open load the foo.tif file into Photo. Maybe you could even supply actions to Merge or create HDR from URL parameters - but that would just be icing on the cake. If your curious about my reasoning (like, who really needs to use the command line for this!?!?), it's that the UWP MS Store app boundaries are preventing integration with my DAM. I use Capture One, and C1 cannot find Affinity Photo because I cannot navigate to the app from the Windows Explorer (files and packages are hidden). By having these entry points, it could allow for me to create an extension to Capture One or a batch command wrapper so that I can send the files I want to edit over to Photo. To be clear, if I had purchases Photo directly from Serif, this wouldn't be an issue since the app gets installed in Program Files and I can browse for that. Thanks for your consideration. I hope the links show that to enable the feature wouldn't require too much code to get that done (well, how could I really know, I haven't seen your code) and would love to see that. I thought purchasing the MS Store version would just mean the apps would behave the same and that I wouldn't have to worry about performing updates manually - but now I know a little more about how UWP apps work and sorta regret doing so. Cheers and all the best
  2. Have 1.6.5.123 purchased from the Microsoft store. Am told launching it will start the update process. Sorry, doesn't happen. Update function when signed into the store also doesn't happen. Can any one help? (perhaps I'm jumping the gun here?)
  3. I am a beginner to designing. I just wish to learn it as a hobby. Tried Inkscape but it's UI isn't great. Then I tried Affinity Designer and liked it immediately. I think I'd like to buy it after the trial ends. But I saw the same product on Microsoft Store. Sadly couldn't find a trial version for that. I like the idea of sandboxed apps for the ease of installation and updates. However, as I read on the forums - the store and desktop license aren't tied together. There aren't any reviews available for the Store app (not even on the store itself). I would have liked to know how the UWP version compares to desktop version; not just in terms functionality, but also bug fixes, customer/community support and how it handles Windows protocols. Has anybody used the UWP version and would like to share their review? Is there a chance I can get a refund if I don't like the UWP version (if yes how long is the refund window?).
  4. How to install AFDesigner on mac? I bought it on MS store so I don't have a product key. Can you help me with this? Thanks
  5. After about 20 years of working with Adobe Illustrator with corporate licensing, and disappointed with Adobe's subscriptions, I was so excited to find Affinity Designer's featureset, and the pricing I got through Microsoft Store. So that's how I bought it. The first thing I saw when I launched it is a promo to download the free Grade UI kit. I clicked the link, and registered for an account on the Affinity site and for this forum, and dutifully verified my email address. The problem: the Downloads page (https://affinity.store/en-us/account/downloads/) still says I need to verify my email address. Why doesn't it give me the option to download the free Grade UI kit? Thanks in advance for your assistance!
  6. I just bought a AF Designer MS Store version for my Surface Book. I have tested the brush with pressure, it doesn't work. Do I need to configure anything or it should just work? Thank you in advance. Johnny
  7. I have just purchased Affinity Photo from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10, but I purchased Affinity Designer from this website a few weeks ago. I am just wondering if its somehow possible for me to also download and install Affinity Designer from the Microsoft Store in Windows 10 using my existing license?
