  1. I was building some fairly large panoramas in Affinity Photo today, pointed AP at 30-40 raw files and sent it on its way. I was working on another (non-AP related) task when my C: drive filled up! I had to scramble to free up some space. Several programs I had started panicking on the low disk space, though I never saw a message from AP. I ended up canceling the rendering of my panos to worry about it later. When I closed AP, several gigs were cleared up on C:. I have a larger data disk that I would prefer to be used for this type of temporary data, but I couldn't find anything in the settings pages that allowed me to change it. Is there a setting for this, and if so, where? Thanks!
  2. In Windows there are some apps that will load on whichever monitor the mouse is sitting on. So you can click to launch an app and then quickly move the mouse to the monitor on which you want the app to appear. Handbrake and AviDemux are a couple of examples. Affinity Apps don't do this. They load on the last monitor they were used. Can we get a setting to load the app on the same monitor the mouse is on?
  3. Greetings from México! I share my Windows Vista logo. Windows Vista Logo.afdesign Windows Vista Logo.svg
  4. Hi, I have a simple question. First off I love Affinity Photo and am moving all my photo editing needs over to it, but was wondering why all my .ORF files consistently appear at least 1 to 2 stops darker in the develop persona than what the JPEG embedded preview shows? Is there a setting that I have wrong or is this just something I have to get used too? I'm currently running 1.6.2 on Windows. I'm used to seeing the exposure level showing the same level as the JPEG preview in other editors.
  5. 90 day trials of Photo and Designer won't launch on my Windows 10 desktop. I've tried re-installing and restarting. I've reviewed the threads regarding 3rd party software issues, I don't have any of these on my system. I updated my NVIDIA graphic card driver and took the steps to force start for a dedicated GPU. None of these steps have worked, apps freeze on splash page and don't launch. Crash report is attached, any suggestions appreciated. I was really looking forward to trying these. Thx. 751ccbad-e343-4a28-89fd-4bacadd3f127.dmp
  6. Hi, I have just upgraded to Designer version 1.6.2 for windows. When I move a layer, either a image or a vector, in the background, it automatically jumps to the front of the art board. This happens when I use the mouse AND the directional arrows on my keyboard. Is there a setting that I am missing or is it a bug?
  7. Hello! I'm having a frustrating time with the brush tool in Affinity Photo. I was drawing with the brush tool but it suddenly stop working. Opacity, flow and hardness are all 100% and protect alpha is unticked. All the other tools work. I tried the 'edit in affinity designer' option but designer also refused to paint on the document. I have opened and closed the programme several times upon advice in previous forums. I've tried painting on different layers and adding new layers to paint but there's no response. I also tried painting whilst not having a layer selected (letting the assistant automatically create a new pixel layer) but the brush still doesn't paint. The strange thing is that i opened a new document and the brush tool works with no issues and with all the same settings as the document which isn't painting. I had both the new document and the document i'm working on open and the programme would only paint on the new document. How can this be fixed? I'm mid way through a drawing and can no longer complete it. Thank you!
  8. I'm running Affinity Designer 1.5.1.43 on Windows 10 and it is freezing up constantly. About once per minute it'll freeze for maybe 3-4 seconds and then everything goes back to normal. When it freezes Designer will use about 50% of the CPU capacity for the duration of the freeze. I would assume my computer's CPU simply isn't powerful enough, but Designer regularly uses up to 90% of the CPU capacity with no problems. Also this was never a problem before (same computer, same files). It's been about a month since I last used Designer. This problem started last week when I opened it up and updated to the latest version. System specs: Windows 10 64-bit Intel Pentium G4400 3.3GHz dual core 8GB RAM Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 256GB SSD Any ideas what might be causing this? Thanks.

  11. After launching the app you may notice the app's Welcome screen is missing content and the Affinity logo is displayed instead. This can be caused by your firewall blocking the app from connecting to the internet. If you've temporarily disabled your firewall or added our apps to your firewall's whitelist, please try the advice from @carl123 mentioned here:
  12. Hello guys, So happy with my Affinity photo experience for drawing my comics, except while working - and since it's new to me - I mistakenly start to draw on the wrong layer*, and when I try to cut that part and paste it into the correct layer I do the following: in the current layer I select the part I wish to transfer ctrl + x I choose the layer I'm wishing to have this part on instead ctrl + v and what I get is a new layer with this part and the same name as the layer I cut the part from, and then I have to merge and it's really quite frustrating is there any parameter I can adjust to solve that? am I doing anything wrong? *side note: I don't know how I suddenly move from one layer to another without realizing! I'm in my desired layer and all of the sudden I'm on another layer with already half of what I've done in there! I must be doing something stupid somehow 😅 any ideas
  13. Is there a way to scale a slice on export? I have a large equirectangular image that I want to feed into another application at the highest resolution it supports. When I export the slice, it is too large for the receiving application (max 16384 x 8192). I'd like to be able to scale it to that resolution from within Affinity Photo during export.
  14. If you're getting the below message when validating your product key, please run the app as an Administrator by right clicking the app's shortcut and selecting Run as Administrator. You should now be able to validate your Product Key.

  16. If you purchased your Affinity app from the Affinity Store, your licence details will be stored in an .xml file which can be found in the below locations, depending on the operating system you're using. Deleting the Licence.xml file will remove the licence details used by the app prompting you to re-enter your licence details when you next launch the app. Windows: C:\ProgramData\Affinity\{APPNAME}\1.0\licence.xml or C:\Program Files\Affinity\{APPNAME}\licence.xml macOS: /Users/{USERNAME}/Library/Group Containers/6LVTQB9699.com.seriflabs/{APPNAME}/licence.xml If you're having problems navigating to one of the the above folders, try the following: On Windows: Open the Run window ( Win + R ) and enter the above path or use the address bar in File Explorer enter the above path and press Enter. On macOS: Open Finder and press SHIFT + CMD + G and enter the above path.
  17. Todays: Workflow and WINDOWS (putting all my critics in one thread seems to overtax you - since 90% gets lost) - if you resize (zoom in/zoom out) the content of an undocked window can you please resize the window accordingly. (if the resulting content is smaller than the workspace of the screen, adapt the window accordingly, if the content is larger, maximize the window frame with scrollbars) - If you zoom a view too 100% the position of the content seems to be "random". Please instead center the content and resize the window accordingly! (I know you can do it since you do it with the "fit window" view as well) - having all windows floating a new document should start in floating mode as well - when selecting "float all" the content of all windows should be centered and not randomly put somewhere over the screen - (one is happy to find the content at all). Window size should be adapted to content. - One should be able to drag and drop a layer from one document into another document (not just with CTRL+c CTRL+v). Additionally: when trying to drag and drop the user gets the impression It would work based on the way the cursor changes when you drag a layer into another document - but in fact nothing happens. - ESC still does not cancel essential operation e.g. cropping Most of these bullet points have been mentioned many years ago even though they are absolutely crucial workflow topics. And we are not talking complicated additional features and rocket science - we are talking absolutely BASICS! You just simply ignore them. People that seriously try to work with the software are not of interest for you guys - what upsets me. I keep bringing them up every 6 month what seems to be a complete waste of time. I would roughly guess that AP takes up 30%-40% additional mouse-movements, keystrokes and actions to get to the same results as PS does JUST and purely due to your extremely poor workflow and handling issues. And we all know that time is money. Cheers, Timo
  18. Hey i really like the affinity designer and photo and i want to buy them but before i will do this i need to know if i will be able to install the programs on my mac an my pc for the same licence? From what i founded i had understand that not able cause mac dont use key codes but i have start my trail on my mac few days ago and i have got a key code for the two programs
  19. Bug 1: Embedding a document into another one and rotating it doesn't rotate the light sources. Reported this for the previous version already, original report: Bug 2: Aligning to masked object behaves differently from aligning to masked curve I reported this here already: Bug 3: Alignment drop down menu can not be moved to a panel Feature Request: Alignment drop down menu can not be moved to a panel Bug 3: Copying the style of one object to another changes the settings. Steps to reproduce: a) create a rectangle, size doesn't matter b) right click it -> Layer effects -> "Bevel/Emboss" -> slide the radius to "20px", other settings do not matter. -> apply style with "close" c) select the rectangle and press CTRL+C to copy it to clipboard. d) create a 2nd rectangle of different size (make it much bigger to have a more visible effect) e) press CTRL+SHIFT+V to paste the small rectangles style f) check the settings of the new rectangle: right click -> Layer effects -> "Bevel/Emboss". The radius is now something totally different from the original "20px". This bug also happens to other layer effects and the "Scale with object" setting does not have an impact. Fun fact: If the 2nd rectangle is created by copying the 2st rectangle right after step (a), then resizing it and going through the rest of the steps (that means adding some layer effects to the 1st rectangle, selecting it, CTRL+C, selecting the 2nd rectangle, CTRL+SHIFT+V), the layer effects stay in tact! That's super weird to me! Bug 4: Weird rendering artifact for sharp Bevel Applying a sharp bevel/emboss with a 45deg angel light source (that's not too uncommon ... 🙄) causes a weird dark line on the edge. It should not be there, it should all be uniform. Same for the white line on the opposite side. Final notes. Ok, that's the bugs I found so far. Oh and any news on a vector envelope/perpective/distort or scissors tool? I'm just asking for a friend ... Naja, non the less I like seeing you guys working to improve the software. Keep it up.
  20. ALL THREE updates failed and killed my installations. THANKS A LOT!
  21. Hi, The title says it all. Please add your installation files to the Chocolatey package manager for Windows . So that I can further optimize and automate my software update processes. Affinity Photo and Designer are one of the last tools on my computer that need to be updated manually. Best regards
  22. Hello, I want to create a new icon asset with different categories. As of today the library (https://github.com/Templarian/MaterialDesign/https://materialdesignicons.com) contains about 5200 svgs which I want to import automatically. At this scale, Affinity designer does stop working on windows with the drag-and-drop feature, so I am searching for a new way to import the icons. Is there a tool which can create an afasset-file with automated sub-categories, renaming of the asset names and more? Can we create the files manually? Is there a document with the file content structure? Any other idea? Thanks in advance.
