  3. Yesterday I updated my OS to MacOS Sierra 10.12.3 (16D32). I use a Wacom Intuos 4 tablet. The tablet continues to work fine in other programs, but it does not in Affinity Designer. The pointer get stuck in the top left corner with I plug the tablet in.

  5. When I try to update Designer to version 6.5 I get a popup that says I cannot update. It says, "The contents of the file "affinity-designer' cannot be extracted with this program." Changing the settings in my Mac security preferences doesn't help.

  7. Can somebody help please? I'm trying to download the latest update to my copy of Affinity Photo on my laptop (or, rather, the external hard disc attached to it). However, when I try to install it, it refuses and says 'Invalid path - it doesn't say what the path should be, no is there a way of selecting the path. I tried deleting the program and starting from scratch, but it won't let me do that. Has anyone any ideas? Thanks.
  8. Hi I am unable to install latest 1.6.5 update for Affinity Photo And Designer - Win10 I get message: "Configuration Error" What can happen?
  9. I updated Affinity Photo to 1.6.5 just an hour or so ago. I had a rather large collection of custom content such as brushes, styles, palettes/swatches, macros, and some plugins. The only things that were kept within the program were my macros. Everything else was lost. The last update before this one did not do this, so I am assuming it is a bug. (I'm wondering if there is any way to get these things back or if I have to count my losses.)

  11. Hi, We are pleased to announce the App Store release of Affinity Designer for iPad, version 1.6.1 The small change-list is as follows and is essentially made to avoid the graphical corruptions some users were getting: 'Ungroup All' didn't function the same as the desktop. Correct file type when dragging documents to Files/Affinity Photo. Default 'Background' export slice is correctly named on document creation. Edit menu completely visible when using left handed mode Added option to disable 'Cache screen updates' for any users who still experience graphical corruption during use a few minor memory leaks and fixes. To avoid a potentially lengthy beta process that is all that is included in this release. The update takes a while for Apple to roll out worldwide and should be visible to all in the iPad store within 24 hours. To check which version you are running, the version number is visible in the bottom right corner of the Preferences dialog.
  12. What an incredible program Affinity is. Unfortunately after the recent update of the program the Inpainting Brush Tool on mine seems to have stopped working. Regardless of size of file or area 'painted' nothing happens. Is this a common problem people are facing or or just a one off anomaly and how can I fix it ? Thanks in advance for ant help and advice.
  13. Hello everyone i'm currently working on making my workflow with affinity products to be as fluid as it can so i won't mind not having other products installed. i know Designer and Photo use the same file format and i've learned about the place tool etc... but here is my need: Case: in Past days, using Adobe Products, i could prepare an A4/A5 Canvas on inDesign the work on my photo with PS then all vectors with Ai and when all is done just place them on my inDesign, adjust and if any change i want to do, i just right click on the stuff (picture or vector) select Open/Modify with, select the right software, do necessary changes there click Save come back to inDesign and see all changes Synched. i've tried to do that with Affinity products but up to now, i can't get the updated file synched after i have made changes and Saved the whole thing; it's just stays as it was the minute i placed it; so; maybe i'm missing something here on how to team them and use as efficient as i would do with Ai+PS+iD. Thank you all for your inputs.
  14. Sorry I can't find a way to update!! I'm in a MACOS high Sierra 10.13.4, but when I open affinity the message to update does NOT appear. Theres nothing also on the App Store to update, and I couldn't find any link on the website... I REALLY need that, because I worked on a file on my husbands MAC that has the latest version, and I saw there the message to update, but now I CAN'T open those files on my Affinity that is still the version 1.5.5, although I installed it just I few before my husband did. When I try to open the fie there is an error message that says I can't open this file because it as resources of a posterior version of AFFINITY.... I'm an amateur and I'm loving to work with Affinity! CAN YOU HELP PLEASE!
  15. This problem still exists, even on the latest release. I'm having trouble working around for multiple art-boards each time I open the document. I have posted a video to explain what's troubling me. As you can see, this problem is only with the art-boards. And also, the values once entered in the document creation window is stored in the document setup field and it doesn't update at all. Please watch the video to understand the issue more clearly. Please solve this issue soon. Thank you!
  16. After installing the update today we can no longer access or open Affinity photo it keeps prompting us to install and gives us an area code of 1909 I think saying a shortcut has been erased. Than offers to repair and starts the whole installation process again. I'm obviously not computer savvy. Can I erase and reinstall on the same computer? I think my program is corrupt
  17. hi Guys, my system: Mac OS High Sierra 10.13.3, AP vers. 1.6.8 Can not load an image in finder with "Open with" (Öffnen mit) if AP is already open. If AP is not already open then AP will be opened and the image loaded. This problem is only after the update from version 1.5.x to 1.6.8 Anyone have an idea? Have long researched in the net, with no results. You are my last hope! Thanks Brahm PS. Also, when AP is open, it is no longer possible to "drag and drop" a photo onto the icon to load the image. ...and sorry for my english, it's not my native language.
  18. I think an excellent feature for the Affinity series would be the additional of an auto-update facility. It's archaic to have to go to the new website to do this when you could take that away and streamline the whole experience. It would also be a nice place to show a change log when updates are available or even support Delta patches so you don't need to download the entire thing each time.
  19. I am on 1.6.6. but have had no notification of the 1.6.7 update. I am on El Capitan 1.6.7 is listed in the App Store, but I only have a option to open, not update. In my list of purchased apps in the App Store, I also only have an "open" option. I have logged out of the App Store and logged back in, but this has made no difference. I have also checked for updates in the App Store, but no updates are found. Can someone suggest what might be wrong. Thanks, Graham
  20. I am wondering if updates are available for the MS Store version of Affinity Photo ( and Designer). Users on Dpreview forum mention updating to AP version 1.6.3 . I am on . Will this update be available to those who purchased from the MS Store? thanks
  21. I've updated my Affinity photo to latest version (1.6.3) and now I'm having problem of program keep crashing/Closeing down when I click any of buttons on either on menu or tool bar/navigation etc.(Close down program automatically with making pop up sound but no error message or pop up). I did not had this problem with previous version. It seems like I can open file like EXR or JPG with it, but as soon as I have any kind of interaction with it, it crashes and close down the program. My PC specs are: Window 10 Home 64-bit OS 32 memeory AMD RyZEN 7 1700 CPU Nvedia GPU(With latest update)
  22. I have both iPad and desktop for Mac versions. Are the freebies that come with this update usable on both iPad and desktop apps or just iPad? Thanks!
  23. Hello. After the update 1.6.7 in Affinity, I cannot seem to resize an image how I used to with the Move tool in the Photo section. Normally I would be able to select the six points around the image and resize it with moving my finger, however whenever I attempt it now on it just moves the image in the direction I move my finger. I am not sure if this is a bug or you just moved this ability to another tool, however if this is an issue hopefully you can get this fixed. If this isn’t a bug and it’s just been given to another tool, please may you inform me of that if that’s the case. Thank you
  24. Hi, I recently wanted to update my Affinity Photo program to the newest update. So I just installed it the key I had, knowing I bought it online. But when it comes to installing it, it asks me to insert the CD, which I clearly do not have since I bought the online version. It do not ask me for the key, but the CD only. I really don't know what to do about this. Even when I want to uninstall the current version, it is asking me for the CD and there is no other options. If anyone know how to fix this, it would be awesome.
  25. Hi experts, I am a new user of affinity photo, thought bought the app little while ago now trying to learn the basics. I notice that my app was updated on 2 nov. How do I know if I have got the then free bonus contents. Pleased to hear. Best regards / Samiulla
