  1. I have some questions as I adjust to a new software and GUI. I am a product photographer so align layers is useful to me-does this need to be done manually here? How do I rename layers? I can't figure it out. Clone stamp tells me to tap, but that isn't making a selection. I press and hold using my iPad pencil, and..nothing? How do I save my photo? I like to save. A lot. I tried googling before asking here, but couldn't find anything.
  2. Unfortunately, we're aware of an issue affecting users on macOS Ventura when trying to save to an external drive such as a flash drive that has a FAT partition. You will be able to initially save to the flash drive as expected but any subsequent saves to the same file will give the error: "Failed to save document. Save failed because access to the file was lost. The document must now be closed." This issue is logged with our developers for further investigation but saving locally and to a non FAT partitions is unaffected.

  4. 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?".
  5. title says everything As I cannot save the document, I can't provide the .afpub file, although I can provide a pdf export of it! This document is heavy in text zones, images, groups of layers and shapes, to the point where trying to change a text zone alignment or content freezes publisher for a few seconds. (i7-6700k, 16GB RAM limit, 3.5 GB currently used by publisher, 970GTX for rendering, publisher and file are on my SSD) presentation_de_stage.pdf
  6. 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
  7. Until this morning Affinity Photo has worked just fine for over a year,however today, it crashes whenever I try to save a file. It seems to be so corrupted I can no longer work with it. It is also running more slowly than normal. I am running it on a Mac Pro OS 10.7.5 as I am unable to upgrade to more recent OS systems due to the age of my computer which is no longer supported by Apple. I have already run Disc Repair, the disc is OK and I also repaired the permissions but to no avail. It still crashes. I think the problem might be solved if I trash a preferences file but there are four of them. Question….Can I trash them all or is there one in particular I should trash ? I don't want to make the situation worse by trashing a wrong one. Or as a secondary solution…..should I just do a reinstall which means having to go through the App Store again and that is always a pain ? Any advise would be appreciated. Thanks Limey
  8. Thie mornig I opened my Suite to continue a job due monday morning. After a couple of minutes editing in Publisher, on "save" the app turns off, leaving (fortunately) the file unaltered. I tried several times, with and without admin privileges, But no way. Every time I try to save, the App crashes fatally. I changed to my backup machine, with a previous version installed. Same drama. So it must be the file. Special page format? This happens to be a pesky failure under production conditions, probably will be busting my deadline. (still got 16 hours to get this done.) Any ideas? (file attached). I LOVE the suite, this is my first ever FATAL accident. Regards, Mathias Flowpack_Grundseite_1_Kg.afpub
  9. I organise most of my documents into projects in Designer. When I save documents they go into the default save location, whether they are in a project or not they all go into the same folder. I should like to request that when a document is saved: If it is not part of a project then it defaults to the default save location If is part of a project and a folder with the same name as the project exists then it is saved to that folder If it is part of a project and there is no folder with the same name as the project then Designer creates the folder and saves the file to it I should also like to request that a save option be added at the Project Level that will save any documents newer than the existing saved version. This would be helpful where different projects may have documents with the same name, it will also lead to tidier folders and easier archiving of old projects. Thanks Stephen
  10. Hi, Could you give us a way to save interface layouts, with customized toolbars and palettes layouts?
  11. Hi, I had a very unpleasant problem: I draw parts of the face that will be automatically painted using code, but for this I need to save the files in svg and open in adobe illustrator, but the order of the layers changes completely, some become a group, new ones appear ... I need a layer called "color" to be colored, but for some reason it becomes a group. An example in the picture: I need the eyeball to be separate, as in the screenshot in affinity designer, the layer order and grouping are ideal, but everything changes when exporting and opening in the illustrator. I tried changing the settings, grouping, language, names, converting zhlipsy to curves, etc. but it does not work. I really hope that this is just my mistake and that you can fix it thank you in advance!
  12. Dear Affinity people, I've encountred a strange behaviour when saving files. I've always thought that the program will offer as a saving location the folder the original file was placed in. But when I open a picture in Affinity Photo, for example, make some adjustments and try to save it or export - it will show totally different location, without much sense. If I save it in some random location, the next time I open another file from a different folder, it will not even offer the last used location for saving - this would still be strange and make some sense but even this doesn't happen. So how exactly does the saving work? Why it doesn't offer the original location first? Thanks. David
  13. Hello! Please help! I’m trying to save as a jpg a selection with a transparent background. I want the object alone, without the black or white background. I did that once, but I’m unable to repeat the process. Frustrating! Your help requested, Please...
  14. Hi. All I'm trying to do is save a rectangular selection (made with marquee too) to a file. However when I follow the instructions, repeated below in blue, the only file type that available is "afselection". I don't know what that is, but all I want is to save it as a JPG or PNG file. Please advise. Thanks. To save a selection to a file: With a pixel selection in place, from the Select menu, select Save Selection. Adjust the dialog settings as required. Click Save.
  15. As a 'Photoshop Refugee' I retained Bridge when I changed to Affinity. However, I can only use SAVE and not SAVE AS with Affininy as when selecting save as I cannot see the image in Bridge. As I understand the situation it is better to save with afphoto rather than jpeg but I cannot do this and still see the images. I would be grateful if someone would suggest an alternative to Bridge that will allow save as and still see the image.
  16. Hi, I'm new to this forum and joined mainly to try to get an answer to this issue. I'm also relatively new to Affinity Photo. I'm just learning ho two use it. I'm working on creating a jigsaw view of a photo and for some reason its taking 20 to 30 mins to save. The size of the file is 700Mb. Any support welcome regards Derek
  17. When I have multiple tabs open and try to close the window, AP asks me for every file if I would like to save or delete the changes I made. The problem is that it doesn't show the file the prompt is for in the background, which is pretty misleading IMO. I have deleted changes from my documents multiple times because of this issue. This issue could also be solved if AP had an auto save feature. Why can't AP auto save at least every hour or two?
  18. I am having consistent problems with affinity designer crashing. it crashes when i load and save files. I have attached a screenshot of the error messages. I am saving and loading from internal hard drive. My files have a combination of jpeg and vectors. Please help me understand how to fix this problem. THANKS!
  19. Hi All I am using the Mac Mojave and the photos app. When I click on a photo and edit in affinity photo , make changes in affinity photo, and then close the document, save. The save doesn't change in photos - and the photo remains the same what am I doing wrong? thanks,
  20. Hi I know there have been topics on batch processing but I keep hitting a problem, I'm wanting to resize and watermark my photos to send to clients, but when recording the macro it says it can not record the save instruction in the macro. is there a workaround for this, as it basically means you can not do any batch processing even though the option is there.
  21. I am trying to save my document that I've put a lot of work into, but now it won't let me save it. I have tried saving it in various locations and names and get this same (attached) error. I have plenty of storage space on my laptop and am not using any external drives. I have tried simply creating a new file and copying the layers, but it still won't save the document. I am able to export the documents, which I have done, but I do not want to lose the source document. Another interesting thing, I saw that it is somehow saving the document though it tells me it isn't. But, when I try to open it, it says it is already open. So, I tried to duplicate the document and save that, got the error about it couldn't be saved but noted that it still "saved" something to my desktop. So, I closed the duplicate file and tried to open the "saved" file and still got the error that the file was already open. For reference, I am on a Macbook Air.
  22. Hi, I was recently using the Publisher Beta and unfortunately, lost a bit of (thankfully simple!) work due to a disconnection with my work VPN. We use a VPN to access in-house servers, which has a fairly short timeout period. Whilst working on a Publisher file, the VPN disconnected. When I went to save my work, an error popped up saying that Publisher had lost access to the file (and linked files) and immediately closed. My work was gone and a shock on my face. Whilst common sense would propose saving frequently, is it silly to suggest a failsafe option of switching to the Save As menu when this happens? My project was using linked files, but surely there's a way around this for those accessing work files remotely? Thanks and keep up the great work! Levi
  23. I imported a client's PDF (52 pages) (they use "Scribus"!) and seemed to be able to do some manipulation But could not save via "file>save as" which greyed-out (as was "save") Only option seemed to be to exit and the respond "yes" to do you want to save. Which I did. The file was saved to the desktop. Later, when trying to open file got error message to say file type not recognised!
  24. I see you can open indesign files etc... but can you save them out as indesign so that I can send over to someone who only has indesign and not Affinity.. I know I can save as PDF's but that's not what I want.
  25. I sadly had just enough money last sale for Affinity Photo, but I woul'd love to have also Affinity Designer. Will there be another sale this year? Best Regards
