  1. Hi developer team, please check the (unlisted) video, everything explained there. When I say backup copy, I mean recovery file. Both have been there and for that I didn't lose any work. I can not reproduce it this happens coincidentally. There is one pattern: only on first start of AP. After crash and 2nd start, the problem is gone until next reboot of Mac. Something completely different, I ask this each post here in the forum: When will get Effects/Gaussian Blur be enabled for masks? When will we get a Fill slider additionally to the Opacity slider. When will be an indicator added, showing the layer has Blend Options applied? Compliments: the Affinity implementation is far better to use as he flimsy Blend-if sliders of Photoshop. Version 1.10.5, additional purchased on Serif homepage instead of AppStore. Reason: Photoshop add-ons such as Topaz Denoise do not work with AppStore version of Affinity Photo. Once I got told here in the forum because AppStore apps have to run sandboxed. Cheers and Happy Halloween, Roland
  2. I have at last decided to get to grips with Affinity after using DrawPlus , etc for years. My first introduction not good. In Designer I spent some time creating a new but simple effort (It included a photograph from my hard drive, some text, a graphic I created and some blocks of colour.) and then 'Saved as'. I gave a name for the document and selected a folder. I got messages asking should this and that be saved to which I answered yes. (I fancy because I let some items extend beyond the page). An icon appeared in the folder but when I tried later it would not load back in to Designer. So I created another, similar document (a bit quicker this time) and tried to save that with a new name. I got the message 'Save failed because access to the file was lost.' Yet the new icon was in the folder with its new name. But that won't open either. I'm using Windows 10 on a desk top computer and saving to an external drive. Help please.
  3. I would like to bring to discussion the Export screen in the V2 of the Affinity Suite. For complex projects it takes ages to upload the file preview, and in mostly occasions I don't even see it. IMO I don't see any advantage of having quick preview feature versus the having the beautiful icons of quick file type selection of the V1 (those icons V1 was much intuitive and had a different UI compared with the Adobe Suite). So I would like to see the V1 UI back for this screen, or at least quick file type selection of the V1 added to the V2. Thank you, Artem Toderian ---------------------- Included files: Image: EXPORT FILE UI – V2 Image: EXPORT FILE UI – V1
  4. When saving to a network volume (pCloud) I sometimes receive the message "Save failed because ownership of the file could not be verified The document must now be closed" I've seen this before in other applications and suspect it may relate to saving (Command s) immediately following an auto/recovery save in the background. Force quitting the application then restarting and opening the recovery file will bring the image back at the last edit and it can then be saved. Mac OS 12.6
  5. Hi How can we Save and then reload a "Batch Job" ? I have a couple of different Batch Jobs that I have to do on a regular basis. It would be far easier to save the setup, than having to check all the correct boxes again. Cheers
  6. I have a document that is a 1920x1080 px presentation that has 89 slides, all images that I have used are linked, except for some simple vector icons. Those shouldn't add up to over a couple Mb. I have some, but only very few layer adjustments and only one slide that is masked with a pixel layer. The file is 384 Mb when I do a Save As. But, if I do a regular save after moving a detached Masterpage text frame, the file becomes 511 Mb. Undo history is set to 256 steps, but I only did one adjustment, so what could be causing this major file inflation? My 200 page Indesign file that contains many more images and way more text is just 100 Mb, so I don't really understand why Affinity uses this many resources.
  7. I only save manually, always, in all programs. I am using it deliberately, as a feature, i.e., by default, when I close an app, if it asks me to save I always hit No, because I know that I did some changes that were just some experiments that I don't want saved. Whenever I do "production" changes I am happy with, I hit Save at once. The following workflow would work in Affinity if not for this: Affinity asks me to save changes when no changes have been made. I open document -> go to export -> hit export -> close document -> and I get a "do you wan to save changes?". This is bugging me like there's no tomorrow. I did absolutely no changes. I do exports very very often, and I close documents very very often. Please, add a setting where I can disable this dialog. It ruins my creative workflow. P.S. Even though oftentimes I don't even change anything in export window, I still view everything I do in export window as *no changes to the document*, thus, I do not expect the popup to appear. On top of everything, it is very misleading, especially when you don't close the document at once but after a while, and suddenly you get this Save Dialog, but at the back of your head you don't recall making any changes, and you start wondering "have I done anything I should save, or should not save?".
  8. In the past couple of weeks I've had a really bizarre issue with Designer and sometimes Photo too. When I try to save a file the progress bar appears but never moves. It seems to be creating an empty file but that's it. Activity Monitor shows it taking up 100% of the cpu and I have to force quit although it doesn't register as not responding. It doesn't crash and I don't get any error message it just sits there sucking up all the CPU power. I thought maybe it was because iCloud was syncing or I didn't have enough space on my HD but I made space and icloud was not syncing. This doesn't happen on any other app so it's not a permissions issue. Please help as I obviously can't do any work until this stops happening.
  9. Hey everyone! I have a lot of files (right now, 128, but there will be a lot more) from Procreate that need minor editing. I would like to save all .pngs flattened and close all files at once, since at the moment, this takes just about the amount of time that I need for actual editing. It would be great if there was a way to save multiple files in the same manner (for example, flattened) and (or) close them with discarding any unsaved changes. Best wishes, Shu
  10. Device: MacBook Pro (15-inch, 2017) System: MacOS 10.15.3 (19D76) Designer version: 1.8.2 Can't save any files, just like the image said. Already open the FULL DISK ACCESS for Designer.
  11. After working on my photos I save them (of course), but Affinity doen't show any choice but saving in .afphoto. Unfortunately I cannot read this format with my Mac sw neither with Preview nor with Photos. If I read the photos using Graphic Converter I get a terrible and blurred version of my photos. Isn't possible to save in a different format? otherwise what can I do? TIA
  12. I had this problem too. Happens only on my iMac but no on my Macbook. Clicks on the save dialog don't work, only ESC key close the dialog. macOS: 12.3 Screen Recording 2022-03-29 at 12.49.23.mov
  13. Hey there, I always forget to check the "Save History File with Document" after creating a new one. I understand, that not everybody wants to save the history by default, because it would make a lot of files a lot larger (I guess so?). But for others it would be nice to have a Checkbox in the (User-)Settings to get the history saved with the document by default when saving a document. Perhaps it would even be possible, to have a "per document"-exception-setting. Greetings, Johannes
  14. Would be great to have most common admin commands (e.g., from the File menu) available as dedicated buttons, especially a "Save" / "Save As" / "Export". These are utterly commonplace in most programs now; navigating the menu is tedious and the key-codes are too complicated (at least in Windows) for common items.
  15. When trying to save a file for the first time, I find that I am frequently unable to enter a filename, as though Designer has frozen. If I click somewhere else, and then back to the filename field, text may suddenly appear and I can type as normal. I have also had some issues with the Save dialogue in Photo since upgrading to macOS Monterey. My system: iMac 5K 2017 RAM: 24 GB macOS Monterey 12.2.1
  16. Hi! I just did a search of the group for this and nothing came up, so forgive me if this has been brought up before. I am wondering how you keep text layers editable editable after your document has been saved ... ? I have tried saving documents as PNG, PSD and .aphoto, but none of these formats seem to allow text layers to be editable once the document has been saved and then loaded back in to Affinity Photo afterward. Is this something that Affinity simply won't do, or should I used another format? Any information on how to do this would be helpful. Thanks!
  17. Hi all, I am loving this software and kicking myself for wasting so much time and money with Photoshop; however, I need to print something at someone else's house - so I need to email them the files I have created - and for the first one I did I was able to create a .jpg and email just fine - but now, for the life of me, I can't remember how I did it. I know this sounds so stupid - but I have a lot of medical problems hence the memory issue. Can anyone walk we through were to find the steps or provide them to me? Thank you kindly, Katie
  18. Hi, The save dialog box default to the last folder you saved a file to instead of the last folder you saved a file to OR the folder of the last opened file. This may seem a minor issue but it causes a lot of mistakes. Is there any chances you’ll fix this quickly ? Pretty please ?
  19. Hi, I tried to find solution but couldnt. For other tools you can go to Edit > Defaults > Save - for selection tool it doesnt work I want to have default settings for Refine - not have to manually change it each time and switch off that weird "matte edges" option (who even uses that) Is there a way to have default setting for Refine Selection tool? Same as per my photo?
  20. Hi, as I am not a native English speaker I apologize upfront for spelling mistakes and bad grammar. Yesterday I downloaded the Beta of Publisher which is Version 1.7.0.305 for MacOS. I then placed a pdf to use some of the included elements. Now I can not save the publisher file, only export to the several options publisher has. Because I might change something in the document later on that is a bummer. I guess I am currently working on the imported pdf. Is there a way to toggle some kind of setting to save my work? As I am new to layout in general and worked with inDesign only a hand full of times before, I need your help. Currently there are two tabs in publisher, one unknown which I can save and one embedded, which I can not save and in which I (probably mistakenly) did all of my changes. The changes happen to be done in the unknown tab as well, but objects are not editable as there are only the master layer and the one layer with the pdfs name on top. I hope you can help me, big thanks in advance! Best Wishes Tobias
  21. Hi I’m fairly new to processing on the iPad and am wondering if anybody can tell me how I can automatically keep the original filename when exporting my work from .RAW format to .afphoto and .JPG formats. i want to be able to keep the camera filename so I can cross reference my processed work to original camera file, and sometimes re-visit my processing. i only get the “Untitled.jpg” option and its an absolute pain having to look up the original file name, type in and change it. Thanks in advance Kev
  22. Hello friends, I placed a layered APh file into another file that's a comp. I edited the embedded APh file several times, so my original embedded doc as saved on disk is outdated. I now want to save out the embedded file as it's own file back to disk. When I go to edit the embedded document, Save As… is grayed out. What's the best way to save my file back to disk?
  23. Hallo Team, ich konnte mit meinem iPAD bisher immer eine Kopie auf Onedrive speichern. Seit einiger Zeit ist Onedrive resistent und weigert sich beständig. Bei einigen anderen App´s bzw. Clouds habe ich mich ab- und wieder angemeldet, dann hat´s getan. Manchmal hilft auch ein und ausschalten aber das kann´s ja nicht bringen. Wer hat da eine kluge Idee? Danke Frank Pauli
  24. Hi I'm using windows 10 and Affinity Photo 1.9.2.1035 and having problem trying to "Save As" or Export as a Jpeg, PSD or Tiff. Nothing is saving my work to my hard drive. Suggestions please. Thanks Andrew
