  1. Hello Affinity people! Is there a chance we could see larger file previews in Finder / Path Finder? As of this moment all Affinity files' previews are tiny compared to PDF, JPG and all the other types of files, for that matter. Talking about Spacebar previews. Please check screenshots. Thanks in advance! David
  2. I have both Affinity Designer and Photo on my iMac. I have one annoying thing that happens that I cannot fix. When I double click an .afdesign file in Finder, it almost always opens Affinity Photo instead of Designer for anything located in the "Affinity Designer" iCloud Drive folder. The only way for me to get it to open in the right program is to specifically select it using "Open With" or by opening it from inside Designer. How do I fix this? Things of note: - In Finder the files all do say they are the "Affinity Designer Document" type. - As I mentioned, this appears to mostly occur for files stored in iCloud Drive in the Affinity Designer folder. If they are on my computer or in the documents folder (I do have that being stored on iCloud so I can access it from my iMac or MacBook), the files tend to consistently open in Affinity Designer.
  3. Hey, there's a feature in macOS which I know is quite hidden but it's very very very useful, once you are aware of. Bad enough that it is missing in affinity photo and designer. In all finder windows and most apps which deal with files it's possible to do some basic file handling actions from the window title where the file icon is located. Doing a right click lets you go directly to the path where the file is located. Dragging the file icon lets you move or copy the file to another place. Here's a very quick video attached but you should try this handling yourself and you will see, how it boosts your productivity. Btw. this function exists from the first day of mac OS X. Would be nice if you add this because it's so so basic. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6-fkYFV7rOY (at 0:59, some other examples exist, but I just had this quickly by hand) cheers Benny FilehandlingSD.mov
  4. I thought I would share (what I thought) was a great bit of news. I really liked that feature in Adobe Bridge that lets you shirk down a window with a single click and then bring it back up with a single click. I am not the world's biggest Bridge fan but I like that one feature a lot. I was just sent an email from the makers of HoudahSpot that they brought this feature to their HoudahSpot 5 beta! I thought some people here might like to hear that since many here are of course former Adobe users and might like to know this. I use HS's tagging support constantly, I find it to work better then Bridge or even the Finder in many ways. I would suggest trying this product and helping the developer. Important product to have on hand.
  5. When browsing project files in Finder (macOS) I noticed that the same project as a .psd will preview a high-res thumbnail of the artboard but if the project is saved as .afdesign there is a low-res thumbnail. I was curious if anyone else noticed or has this behavior. If possible, I think it'd be great if Affinity would save higher-res thumbnails of the project file to make browsing in Finder a little more useful. I included screenshots to show the difference.
  6. Some of my exported images from Affinity Photo show with a preview image in Icloud/affinity photo and some do not. The previews are available with the Finder tab on the Mac and the file finder on the PC. The images can be uploaded from the Icloud drive but they cannot be previewed. All formats are affected. Help would be appreciated. DManf
  7. Hi. Recently i'm having issues saving on both Designer and Photo. Working over a NAS server on AFP, each time I try to save changes on an existing document for fisr time, I get an error: Couldn't be saved because lost connection to file, file must be closed (Sorry, message in Spanish. This is a rough translation by me) Issue is, files are there, I can re-open them from recent files, and is permanently available on finder. There is no disconnection from server. If I re-open from open recents… the file opens and tries to recover itself, and normally it works and save fine from there. So the fail occurs on first saving after opening the file. Once you get the first save, you can work for hours without issues. Issue happens with any file, randomly, in both apps. Always on first saving. This is happens since a couple of weeks ago. If I create a new document and save it, works well. Is always with existing documents. Designer 1.6.1 Photo 1.6.7 MacOS 10.13.4 Files on NAS over 1 GB ethernet through AFP protocol (Synology DSM 6.1.6-15266 Update 1) If you need further details, feel free to ask. Have a nice day.
  8. Hello, tools remain on top of the Finder window when opening a file (no issue when saving.. then it remain in the back as it should). Thanks
  9. Hi, just found out that modifying the informations (properties) of a file in OSX finder, to make the files directly opens in Affinity, change there "type" to "Affinity openable" (SVG/AI... in AD and PNG/JPG/TIFF...in AP). That is obviously an issue. Always does this with all my programs since i know it's going to be the leading software (like Atom for PHP/CSS/XML/JS, or LibreOffice for .doc/.xls/.ppt....). Cheers ! Thx
  10. Hi All A minor question, does anybody know how I can make Affinity default to using Path Finder instead of Finder when locating / opening files on a MacBook ? Cannot see either in Mac preferences , Path Finder preferences or Affinity preferences were I can do this. Dave
  11. My TIFF files made with Affinity Photo are not displayed in Apple programs including Photos, Finder and Preview. This seems to happen to files made after a certain date some time this year. The Apple tech I talked to said there seemed to be a fix by Affinity Photo. I cannot find it. How do I get this issue fixed? Thanks.
