  1. Bild rauschen entfernen EXTREM fehlt und zwar zum Anklicken dieses rechteckigen Kästchens und zwar ich wollte bei mir das Bild rauschen entfernen und habe dann auf Youtube geschaut und da gibt es einen Haken zu setzen extrem der ist bei mir gar nicht vorhanden warum nicht?. Affinity Photo 2.2.1 ist auf Windows 11 installiert
  2. Tech specs: System: Windows 11 Pro (22H2) Memory: 32GB DDR4 Hello gamers, yesterday I got prompted about an update when opening Designer 2, so I went on the Affinity website and downloaded the 2.2 installers for Designer, Photo and Publisher. After installing all three, I went and opened Designer 2 again from my Start menu. Another pop-up, telling me 2.2 is now out and if I want to download it. "That's odd, didn't I just install that?" I check version of Designer and sure enough it's still on 2.1. Weird. So I close Designer and open the installer again: Okay. "Maybe a faulty update?" I press reinstall, it's done almost instantanously. Pressing the Launch button, I finally boot into Designer 2.2. So I went ahead and just to make used Reinstall with the other two installers too. Today I open Photo via Start menu and get greeted by the familiar update notice yet again. You can probably tell by now: Opening Affinity software over my Start menu pins opens 2.1, while opening over the installer opens 2.2. So I had a look: Installed apps: Start menu (with my pins): Start menu > All apps: I am not too sure what is going on, but I can't even inspect the location of the 2.2 installations. Got some information out of it by looking at the Designer 2.2 task: Whereas my Affinity 2 installation is under the default location: Is there some kind of conflict with new W11 features or something? That would be my first guess. Anyway, I would happy to resolve this. Having 2 installations/instances hovering around isn't very pretty. 😛
  3. So I've finally been able to afford the collective bundle for the cross platform Affinity V2 Suite. I've been so excited to get it for ages, and last night I finally did. Unfortunately, I'm moving across from the Adobe suite (the programs my uni uses). I'm working away at a publication and have tried to bring an idml over to affinity. This has so far been met with much difficulty. Primarily, many tutorials for the resource manager are out of date. It took me much longer than I'd like to admit to find the Resource manager in the Window menu, not the Document menu as almost all tutorials still say it is. Now that I've found it and have begun trying to reconnect everything, I'm running into more issues. I told the manager to look into the links folder of the publication, which it finally did, and it seemed to work (kind of). Except now, it says some assets are linked, but are somehow missing. When I go to the folder they're there - same names, formats, files, everything. Yet the manager says they're 'Missing'. It's making me go through and manually relink almost every single image which is already there in the folder. Surprisingly, some of the images have linked okay, but it doesn't seem to have any defining pattern. Image format, size, nothing seems to dictate whether they'll show up missing. I've attached a screenshot showing the issue, with the resulting file explorer window opened through Affinity after pressing 'Relink' and the subsequent file explorer window if opened through Windows. Luckily, I'm still near the start of the publication and I want to persevere with this, but so far I'm feeling pretty let down. I am looking forward to seeing if the experience improves though, and definitely looking forward to the profile switching/sharing.
  4. Here are some Windows 11 color folder icons and some additional Windows icons I created. These icons can be used to replace the default icon for folders in Windows. The folder icons were designed to match the style of Windows 11 folders, but they can be used in Windows 10. My apologies to Mac users that this is a Windows-only resource. I hesitated to share something that can’t be used by everyone, but I’d like to make the icons available to those who may find them useful. The icon ICO files include the standard Windows icon image sizes. Instructions are included for those unfamiliar with how to change Windows folder icons (it’s easy). Contents of the ZIP file: 38 folder icons (ICO) 139 additional symbol icons (ICO) 12 brand logo icons (ICO) 1 instructions document (PDF) 2 preview images showing all the icons (PNG) Windows Icons.zip
  5. I run my Universal Affinity Suite on my main PC that runs Windows 10 Pro and all functions correctly work including the Export file type selection. I want to use JPG and all works. However, on my Windows 11 (Home Addition) when I try to Export the same file, the only option that is available is PNG. How do I get Affinity Photo, Design and Publisher provide the full list of file types like it works on Windows 10? I have included a screen shot of the problem. Thank you, Frank
  6. As the title says. UPDATE: I meant right-click edit for file types other than .afxxxx like bmp, png, etc
  7. When text is flowed into a linked frame on the next page, its font size is inexplicably tiny at the top of the next frame. I have seen the same thing happen but with a huge text size, and also wild alternation between huge and tiny as the text is reflowed between the frames. This problem occurs seemingly randomly. Regardless of how much I have fiddled with text style resets and overrides, I cannot find a lasting solution - the problem recurs. The only solution has been to rebuild the document from scratch in a new file. I suspect this bug may be related to IDML import, as to date I have only seen it happen in documents I've transferred from InDesign.
  8. Hi, I wonder if you can help with an Affinity Photo v2 issue I am having... I am using Affinity Photo v2.1.0 I have been trying to amend a brush, then save it as a Duplicate, which I have done in v1 many times. But v2.1.0 won't duplicate the brushes that I create, so I can't save the new versions of the brushes. I am in an unsaved, new document. I am in the Edit Brush dialog box. I can duplicate a brush if I am not in the Edit Brush dialog box, but then I can't make the changes I want to make to the brush. I attach the documents, also the screengrabs. i can reproduce it as it happens every time I make changes to a brush and try to save it as a Duplicate. i am using Windows 11. I am just using a mouse, no tablet. What I do when it happens... I select the brush in the Brushes panel Right-click the one I want Click Edit Brush The Edit Brush dialog box is displayed Then I make the changes to the brush, add a bitmap, edit the bitmap, turn off Sync Spacing and Sync Size, then when I try to Duplicate it, I find that it does not duplicate the brush and I have lost all the changes because I cannot save them. Hope this helps. Thanks. Del Affinity Photo Duplicating Brush Problem 02.afphoto Affinity Photo Duplicating Brush Problem.afphoto
  9. I'm not certain of the date, but recently the preview display in the Windows Explorer side panel stopped working. I've tried reinstalling as a fix without success. This started happening before the last major Windows 11 Pro OS update, and I haven't made any other aspect of the system. I've attached a screen cap showing the problem in a directory with Designer V2 files, but the problem is the same with Photo and Pub.

  10. Hello, did anybody else have experienced a degradation in designer's performance after some time of use? I did noticed that lately I had what I call "windows vista experience" where during my workday that I close and open many different projects designer start to feel sluggish and it start lagging in response to whatever I try to do, even very basic tasks. It all go away if I close the program and open again, but this is problematic and I try to figure out what is going on.
  11. Buenas tardes, Recientemente adquirí un equipo nuevo con Windows 11, y la aplicación constantemente se me queda bloqueada con el mensaje de "no responde" No creo que sea por falta de rendimiento ya que el equipo monta Intel I7 de 11ª Generación 16G de Ram y tarjeta gráfica dedicada. En el anterior equipo con Windows 10 funcionaba perfectamente. ¿Alguien más tiene problemas al utilizar Affinty Photo en un equipo con Windows 11? La versión instalada de la aplicación es Muchas gracias y saludos
  12. I have been trying to uninstall Affinity 2 with no success. I have the latest 2.0.3 version. The software works fine and launches with no problem. I am just wanting to uninstall it for now. In Windows 11 I have tried Settings>Apps>Installed Apps, and tried to uninstall but keep getting this message: "We couldn't uninstall Affinity Photo 2 The operation did not complete successfully Try again in a bit. The error code is 0x80073cfa, in case you need it." I have looked at the FAQ section in this forum and those suggestions did not seem to help. Would appreciate if someone could assist.
  13. I just picked up Affinity V2. I’ve been using V1 for a bit. But I’m seeing my stacked data showing a double image in Affinity V2. I did a stack of the identical data and in fact an even greater sample size in Deep Sky Stacker current rev which showed no artifact. Is there a new setting I’m missing in V2. Thanks in advance and please feel free to move this post if needed. I hope the image added below links. DSS (bottom)shows no ghost as seen in affinity V2 (top). I have now shot a handful of added image data sets the error is consistent. Windows 11 Affinity V2 2.0.4 Dell Workstation 2450 versus Deep Sky Stacker 4.2.6
  14. I want to snap line or object nodes to other lines or object nodes. I would like to be able to do this with the move tool, but it seems like the only way to do this is with the node tool. Is that correct? A current example: I have a shape/curve with some corners and straight lines. I want to snap a line (curve, created with the pen tool as a straight line) to the shape. In order to do that, I have to zoom out, select the line, switch to the node tool, select both nodes on the line, then move them all using the node tool to snap as I want. When I use the move tool, it snaps to other stuff, like the bounding box or center points of various things on my canvas. Why aren't nodes part of the snapping options when using the move tool?
  15. Hallo, wo sind die exe Dateien für die o.g. Programme. (Universal Lizenz). Ohne Exe kann ich die Programme nicht in andere einbinden und auch keine neuen Icons auf Rocket Dock erzeugen. Ich kann zwar die heruntergeladene msix Datei über PeaZip in einen Ordner entpacken und habe dann auch eine exe Datei. das Programm kann ich auch über die exe starten. Gestern kam die Anzeige, das ein Update auf 2.03 vorliegt. ich habe dieses installiert und dann wieder über die exe gestartet. Es startet aber immer nur die Version 2.00 und nicht 2.03. Wann kann ich die Programme als exe Installation erhalten? Ist es überhaupt vorgesehen dieses zu ermöglichen? Falls dieses nicht angeboten wird, muss ich wohl von dem 30 Tage Rückgaberecht gebrauch machen. Danke für eine schnelle Antwort auf Deutsch. Grüße
  16. Hi All, With Windows 11 being officially released on 05OCT, is Affinity Designer compatible with it? Thanks
  17. Pretty much what's in the subject. I can pick between several Visa or Mastercard cards but can't seem to select payment by mobile phone (so it adds to my next phone bill). The option is greyed out. Anyone else? Putting it on my bill gives me more accounting options than usual if you're wondering why I want to do it this way.
  18. Hi, I'm getting the error "Sideloading is blocked by policy. Contact your administrator to allow you to install apps from anywhere" when installing any V2 app on windows 11. I've checked the apps settings and anywhere is set. How can I fix this? Thanks.
  19. Since updating to Windows 11, version 22H2 Affinity Designer crashes and is unusable. Need a fix asap! Anybody else having similar issue? Anyone got a way around this, have restarted PC but no joy!
  20. Hey there, so i was exporting and the export came out incomplete. One pic is a screenshot from affinity designer, the outher is the exported image. Anyone have a possible solution for this problem? (it also cuts off parts of the design depending on the zoom i use...)
  21. I love the Affinity Designer, but lately, it has become unusable. System Specs: Affinity Designer: Windows 11 Pro 21H2 OS Build 22000.978 AMD Ryzen 9 5900X 12-Core Processor 3.70 GHz NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 RTX 3090 windows driver GeForce Game ready driver 526.94 Description Some months ago, I noticed that whenever I used Affinity Designer, it was only a matter of time before my machine became unstable. The Instability was accompanied by menus immediately closing when opened, stuttering mouse movement and UI flickering. Furthermore, once this behaviour started, it would seemingly affect the whole system, even after getting Affinity Designer to close. My system would no longer maintain focus in input boxes in any application, and the UI flickering would start to affect the windows notification area and other UI elements. This behaviour would only occur after using Affinity Designer, and once it had started, only a complete system restart would resolve it. I stopped using Affinity Designer as it wasn't stable enough for me to work with, hoping a future update might resolve it. I have since had updates to affinity and my graphics drivers, but the problem persists.
  22. Photo, Windows 11, Intuos S tablet, Wacom driver 6.3.45-1 Long before I bought Photo, I got this tablet and briefly dabbled with it but haven't invested the time to build any real skill in using it. Right now I'm knee-deep in coming up to speed with Photo itself so the issues with the tablet aren't a show-stopper, but they're concerning. I realize there are a lot of places where things could go wrong, between the drivers, Windows and whatnot. Between Photo and the Wacom utility I've been able to (more or less) get it configured to work acceptably well in Photo. But after a while the pen seems to lose it's mouse mojo, as it were. It functions as a Photo tool (marquee, Crop, etc.) but cannot be used to change / select a tool, nor drop a menu, check a layer, etc., etc. It only functions as a tool (chosen by another method). When that happens, the mouse also misbehaves in the same manner, so I have to close Photo with Alt+F4. Upon restarting it works again. For a while. Anyone ever run into this? So far I've run into this only with Photo. All drivers and Windows Updates are current as far as I can tell. I realize the Intuos S isn't an expensive tablet, but I'd like to (learn to) use if I can. Thanks.
  23. When working on projects today I noticed that Affinity had begun flickering while I was using a brush to alter a mask. It seemed to be solely the program rather than my whole monitor. In addition, when using the brush, the brightness seemed to flicker slightly. Later, when adjusting text, my monitor turned black and the program had hard-crashed (no error message of any sort) after it came back on, showing my desktop. I opened the program again and it had a bad lag when launching. I tried to open the project again and move a text frame, at which point my monitor went black, went between frames of grey and black (while sound was still playing - I was conversing with peers over a call), before my computer crashed entirely and went back to the boot screen. Boot-up was normal. No other issues with any other programs; performance issues are isolated to Affinity photo. This is my GPU load just when launching (disabling hardware acceleration generally stopped this, but I had a more solitary spike in my CPU load instead). With hardware acceleration on, moving assets, including images and text frames (with maybe 5 non-complex layers total, all but two masks), GPU load abnormally went from about 65% to 95%, generally plateauing at around 69-70% while CPU load hovered at around 50%. Sometimes, GPU load stuck at 100%. With hardware acceleration off, GPU load hovered at 20-30%, but CPU load instantly spiked to 100% and stayed there, even when only slightly moving assets. Therefore, Affinity is using unsafe loads with hardware acceleration turned on and off, and is unusable in it's current state without risk to my device. This isn't normal, obviously. I've used Affinity on devices that don't necessarily meet specifications (even on an I3 chip w/out hardware acceleration) without problems like these, and after benchmarking with several other GPU heavy programs, I experienced no problems remotely the same to this and GPU load generally stuck to about 30%. There are no issues with airflow or heating on my computer either, even while these issues are happening. I'm running windows 11, and some crucial specifications are as follows: CPU: 11th Gen Intel Core i7-11700F @ 2.50GHz, 8 Core RAM: 16gb GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3060 Ti
  24. I cannot login my account in your software over 3 days. What should I do? Please help. Details: Affinity Photo & Affinity Designer: Latest stable version. My operating system: Edition Windows 11 Pro Version 21H2 OS build 22000.527 Experience Windows Feature Experience Pack 1000.22000.527.0 Internet status: Very well. I bought them on your official website.
  25. Hello everyone, recently my computer was updated to WIndows 11, when trying to use Photo, I realize that the letters and font of the UI are unreadable, I leave a screenshot. I already reinstalled Affinity Photo with no changes.
