  1. Hi guys, today I've worked on a new Designer file (file created today, 1 artboard, 2 linked images, some icons etc.). After exporting the file to a PDF I've quit the application. 2 hours later I tried to open the file again, but unfortunately Designer crashed immediately. I've tried it several times, no success (immediate crash when opening the file, not even a flicker of a preview). I've tried to open the file in Photo, but it also crashes. I *could* open the file in Publisher and it looks ok (although it complains that I have to convert artboards into pages, of course). Unfortunately I could not fix the file by saving it again from Publisher and trying to reopen it with Designer (still crashes). Any help in fixing the file would be greatly appreciated! If you are interested in the file (~15MB), I can send it to you. Also if you need more information, I'll gladly help. Thanks and all the best, Ole Ah before I forget: Designer/Photo/Publisher 2.0.3, Mac OS X 12.6.2, Macbook Pro 15" Retina 2015
  2. Please let me resize the open PDF dialog in Publisher. I have just opened a scanned document, which I ran through text recognition in Acrobat Pro. Now I have editable textboxes that contain a jumble of text styles and fonts. As you can see, the list is quite long and I can only work on 4 at a time now. If this dialog were resizeable, I would be able to go through more efficiently. I would also be able to compare and look up the fonts in the document if they were presented in-full.
  3. How do I open new image files and have them go into a new layer? So far the only way I can get a new image into a layer is to open it, it opens in a new 'project(?)', a completely separate window. Then I select the image, copy, then go back to the project I'm working on and paste it into a layer. There has to be a direct way to just point to a file and have it open in the selected layer.
  4. There are a few threads about kind of similar issues but not exactly like this so i start a new topic, hope that’s ok. I switched from iMac to iPad Pro 12.9”. I store and sort my raw files in Apple Photos and iCloud and I use Affinity Photo For iPad for editing. I want to be able to select an image in Apple Photos and from there open it in Affinity. I found several helpful ways to creating a shortcut here in the forum. The problem is that it’s not working for me. When I click on “Affinity” (which is the name I gave the shortcut) nothing happens. But, and this is where it gets interesting, one single image in my Apple library opens in Affinity as it should. The image that works is originally a raw file from Apple Photos that I opened in Affinity, edited, saved as a JPEG in the iPad Files folder and then saved it back to Apple Photos. That’s the only one that will open when I use the shortcuts. The other JPEGs, PNGs and raw files won’t open. i attached photos of my shortcut settings and the Affinity shortcut in the share sheet. Anyone knows what might be the problem?
  5. I've been busting my head for the better part of this week and I can't figure out how to make an open ended path from a curve. I wanted to delete one path but all it does is create extra nodes on the path and I can't see any other way around this. Am I missing something ? EDIT: Found it. It was break curve. This needs some overhauling as neither the icon, nor the wording is very inspired.
  6. Hello moderators, I was working on an Affinity Publisher project and all of a sudden the file is corrupted.. I deleted some texts in that file and wanted to save the altered file. But then there was a warning that the file couldn't be found and it is broken now... After restarting the computer, I can't open the file at all. It says it's corrupt all the time. I read in the forum that it might be possible for you to recover files - it would be amazing of you could try it. The file however is private - would you be able to provide a dropbox link where I can upload it privately? Thank you so much for your time. Best Kathy PS: I found these questions in a different post and wanted to give you the details: 1. Which Operating System are you using? Windows 10 2. Which version of Affinity did the file last get saved in? 1.10.4.1198 3. What drive type was the file last saved to (select more than one if needed)? Local disk 4. Any other information you think would help us try to find the problem? There sadly is no backup..
  7. When in affinity photo, and I need to find a file, and I have many files, I goto the folder I think the file will be in, and as I select a pdf or jpg file, even a png or ai file, i can see a file preview in my window, but if I select a native .afdesign file, there is no preview....this doesn't sound right. Is this an oversight or a bug or is there a setting to turn this on? right now I have to open each file to check, this is time consuming...many files... windows 10 thanks! Rob
  8. Hi guys, I found out, that this program - https://www.photopea.com/ - can open photoshop files much better and maybe even perfect, than Affinity Designer. I am little bit disappointed. Just saying. Otherwise I am currently missing just few features from Photoshop (e.g. importing video / gif files). Great software. Thank you.
  9. Hi, I'm working on Windows10 Pro and I simply cannot open any image file in Affinity Photo (current version, German). Nothing happens but the cooler gets louder sometimes. This happens since, I think, version 1.6x. All former versions worked well... very strange... any idea? Thank you!! Joerg
  10. How can I get the blue line as the outline of the type, that it surrounds the D, K, N and Y separately
  11. Hello @all, i have the same issues now as this thread! Can´t open any files in Affinity Photo (PC) since the latest update. After a while, the program is crashing...
  12. So I had this logo and business card redesign that I was working on and I was pretty much done except for some minor touch ups, and I go to my iPad today to find that I can’t open the file anymore. All it says now it “loading failed, Unable to load document”. Now this was a big file as it was an extensive redesign with many options and a lot of work has gone into this file. And now I can’t open it. Is there like a way to fix this? It’s not in my files app so there is no way of me getting the file through there, if I press save the app freezes and then crashed, and duplicate does nothing. Like I said already a lot of work when into this file, so would it be possible for me to open it again?
  13. Hello, My files are located on a QNAP NAS. When I chose „open from cloud“ or „import from cloud“, I get an transparent document (see attached file). Any other files, even the .CR3s form My EOS R, open or import correctly an can be edited. When I first copy the R5 files from the NAS to a folder on my iPad, they open correctly and can be edited. Best regards, BigVood
  14. In the past two weeks, Designer (in Windows 10 w/latest updates) has started closing the program right after I click on any file in the "Open" dialog box. After that, I cannot restart Designer by clicking the desktop icon. I have to use right-click and choose Open. It seems to happen randomly as I never know if whichever file I click on will actually open, but the same file opens with no problem later. Do I need to reinstall?
  15. I'm still a beginner, learning AD on Udemy. I contacted the tutor, who has decades of experience. It seemed natural I was doing something very wrong. But according to him it's a bug, and he directed me to this forum. I will paste the same message below. "I had a template made to use for sharing my work on pinterest. This template was also created with AD and has two layers. When I create a custom document with the correct dimensions, my next step is to "Place" the template on the custom document. But this makes the separate layers inaccessible for editing. It's treated as one solid layer, even though the file format is AD's own. (In case it matters, I keep a copy of the template on the desktop for regular use, without changing the file format. This is what I use in the described scenario.) Only if I "Open" the template am I able to edit the layers as needed. But in that case, instead of opening in my custom document, a new tab opens automatically, with the template in it, and the document's dimensions are wrong. " I would really appreciate some guidance. It's entirely possible that I missed something in my course. I'm mostly skimming through it because none of my projects involve drawing. I use bought graphics, which makes the course in question overkill. I'm mostly using it to gain familiarity with the software. It's really difficult to find information for using AD on the type of projects I do. Thanks in advance.
  16. when working on a large file, as the one in the Workbook, Mother of Millions, I had to save the image down and carry on working the day after. When I came back to my image the Source Panel was empty. I'd lost all the images. I couldn't find any way to load them back in without importing every one of the 41 initial photos and clicking the Add Global Source button to bring each one back to the list. This is very time consuming and seems a little stupid really. I could find nothing in the documentation for repopulating the source panel. I tried saving history with document but that didn't help either. Is this an oversight or have I missed something? If it's not my error perhaps something needs adding to accommodate this facility?
  17. When working with photos/images in Affinity Designer, (with Affinity Photo installed), there should be an easy way to launch Affinity Photo (or another chosen bitmap editor) from within Affinity Designer to edit bitmap images (beyond the photo editing capability integrated into Affinity Designer). This should be available both from the right mouse context menu and the context aware bar across the top when a bitmap image is selected. With such excellent Affinity application interoperability I am surprised this has not yet been implemented. This type of integration should also be incorporated into Affinity Publisher. Another possible interface enhancement, could be to (optionally - in preferences?) replace the Affinity Designer Pixel Persona with the Affinity Photo 'Photo Persona'. If this capability were implemented, it would still be useful to include the ability to launch Affinity Photo as a bitmap editor from within Affinity Designer, as Affinity Photo provides further capability (i.e. Liquify Persona and Tone Mapping Persona). I would love the integration of the Affinity Photo 'Photo Persona' with Affinity Designer when editing bitmap images within Affinity Designer. (Considering how these applications are designed I wouldn't be shocked if such integration were technically feasible.)
  18. I cannot find a way to open an image stored on my Google Drive from within Affinity Photo iPad. Please can someone guide me? TIA
  19. I was experimenting with aftemplate file and noticed that it's not creating a new untitled document if I directly double-click on it to open or access it from File > Open window! Most of the template formats (PSDT, AIT, INDT etc) prompts a new document and this would be a handy feature if included. Need of editing a template occurs rare and in such cases Open Template for Edit option can be used.
  20. Today I went to open a new Affinity Photo file and it froze. It just kept showing the spinning wheel on my 16" Macbook Pro. I forced quit and opened AP again. this time I tried to open a rcent file and the same thing happened. I am not sure if it is the cause, but I think my mac auto updated the OS. It shows as 10.15.3 Can anyone help me with this?
  21. Hey all, Basically I went into Affinity for the first time in months and when I clicked to open the software nothing happened. Uninstalled and re-installed version 1.7.2 at first with no results. Then I uninstalled and went into the website where i got 1.7.3, installed and when i clicked on the icon to run it the icon pops up on the bottom left for a few seconds then disappears. I always ran it with task manager and same thing, affinity designer only pops up for a second or two before disappearing. I also ran repair from the installation file but it didn't fix or say anything was wrong. Another thing possibly worth noting is that when I type in affinity designer on the search bar, the app icon does come up even after being unistalled although when i click once again nothing happens. I also tried going into the install location and when i pressed the "designer" entity nothing happens either except for the icon popping up for a few seconds. This is the only app that isnt working for me.
  22. This may very well be related to a recent system update so apologies if this is nothing to do with Affinity but hoping that someone might have an answer regardless. I updated my Mid 2010 Mac Pro to the latest system it can handle 10.13.6 and I've just noticed that when I go to open a file, if I have the dialogue box set to list view then I no longer get the preview of the file showing at the bottom of the dialogue. Now there is just a thin strip of grey. The only way I can see the files is by going into columnar view (which I don't like using) or by pressing the space bar to preview the images. Problem with that is that the images load very large and so take a lot longer to go through. Was wondering if anyone knows of a way to get that functionality back? If it is Apple that have taken this out then seriously have no idea why as it was really really handy having the image preview at the bottom of the window in list view. Thanks for any help with this. Best wishes, Mark
  23. When I just open a file instead of open the app first, can you make the startup window disappear since I already decided what file I wanna work on. Another thing is, I don't get any notice when I get reply about my question, is there any setting I should turn on?
