  1. Hello Forum, this is my first post so please be easy on me. I just witnessed, after 2 hours of painting, my program force closing. I didn't save my work (I simply forgot it, really stupid I know) and after reopening the program I recovered my file but it was just one layer in there and everything was like when I just started my project. I went into the preferences and checked the File Recovery Interval which was set to 5 mins. so I have to ask: Do you have to activate something else in turn to make the file recovery interval work? I also started a new project and set the interval to 30 sec. and drew a line on my picture and waited 30 seconds to see if the program would save on its own after the time had passed but nothing happened. I'm very upset that my work is now gone and so I want to know what I did wrong so this won't happen anymore. Maybe there's even a way to restore my original file that I simply dont know? :huh: Greetings, ElectroPug.
  2. It seems like all the files I worked on and closed without saving generate a "recovery file" what AP desperately wants to open on restart ... this drives me nuts since I tend to save my work but experiment with documents further on ... so I'll close them without saving the last steps and AP keeps bothering me on restart with wantig to open "recovery files" from theses documents ... Am I doing something wrong? How do I turn this of? A recovery file ist nice when the program has crashed ... but not each time I close a document without saving it!
  3. I've recently upgraded to Mojave and made clean install of OS but I've forgotten to export Assets from AD. Is it possible to recover those lost assets from The Time Machine? If so, which files do I have to copy from TM Drive?
  4. This is not the first, second or third time that I'm in the middle of a design process and suddenly (apparently when dragging some layers) Affinity Designer Crashes. When I open it again, it displays the dialog asking me if I want to use a recovery file. If I choose yes, Affinity crashes again. When this happens, I get all my work lost, there's no way to recover it. This happens always that I'm using symbols (I'm not even nesting symbols inside symbols, because I know this just won't work in Designer) and constraints. If I create a structure where a symbol has constraints within it, and the symbol itself is inside another constraints group, you can be sure that suddenly Affinity Designer will crash. I'm so frustrated right now... File attached, for reference. Please, could anyone open it and check if it's ok in your machines? I'm using a Mac OS X 10.13.3 Beta (this used to happen before the beta too). New Inkscape - 06.afdesign
  5. Hi there, I've evaluating Affinity to work with the raw files from my Canon 70D. For a test I started from a very underexposed picture. With Affinity I followed the lineguides from this tutorial: https://vimeo.com/channels/affinityphoto/202715178 but the best I can get is a quite dull image. See the second attachment. On the other had I see that with a few settings in LightRoom, the software I'd like to leave, I'm albe to achieve better results. See the third image. I'm wondering: I'm missing any step, settings or configuration in order to improve my raw editing with Affinity? I've tried Apple raw engine and Serif but the results are similar. TIA.
  6. I did not save a recent affinity designer file. Where would I find the recovered version of the file? I had saved a png of the file, but I no longer have the original file, except for the recovered versions.
  7. In the past I (and others reported) had some corrupted files, especially I had for example a crash at program start because of a corrupted AppData-Affinity-Folder, that later turned out to be a corrupt assets.propcol file. I don't have the broken files any longer, but I was thinking about a way of recovering data out of such corrupt files. Is there already a tool or command line switch or other way to try to recover such files? If I think I would manage all my assets and brushes in those files and out of a sudden it get's unusable for the Affinity program, I would go crazy. It would be good to have a tool that could try to read the file and try to recover as much as it could and write a new file with all that could be recovered (keeping and not writing to the corrupt file of course). Maybe rewriting header or stuff like that, or if it can't detect the file from the file itself, that someone can say, hey this was an assets.propcol file for example and then it tries to recreate it.
  8. I just sat and worked on a photo in the Affinity Photo Beta for Windows. While trying to use a plugin from google nik collection (Viveza) "photo" crashed. And there goes my work. So i would like to have a recovery feature for files.
  9. Hello, I've just made a mistake - I've clicked Remove on one of the Styles (my favourite one - Metal) in Affinity Photo. Is there a way to recover the deleted style? Best Regards AureaPrima
  10. Hello, I had a crash this afternoon and stupidly didn't click open recovery file....oops! Does Affinity Designer put recovery files any place I can navigate to in Finder?
  11. Hello, I very useful feature in Aperture (and other applications) is that it was able to show me areas of highlight clipping of a photo that were slightly blown out (as well as cold areas that were blacked out) In Aperture, there was a way to "recover" some of the details within these hot areas. I can't seem to find the equivalent feature in Affinity Photo (other that the highlight slider, but somehow does not provide me with the same results) Any suggestions/tips? Thanks
  12. I was using AD Trial, then bought AD Full but still had work open in the Trial, which then promptly crashed on me a day after the trial expired, taking a bunch of unnamed documents with it. Running the Trial just tells me that it’s expired, then opens the App Store. Running the Full version does not give me an option to recover the crashed (autosaved) documents. Which files do I need to move from where to where to make AD Full see them on startup and offer recovery?
  13. Hi there ! I didn't find the way to apply highlight recovery in Affinity Develop Persona.. Did I miss something ? Where is the function to be found ? Cheers !
  14. alanthompson.co.nzHi, i'm taking some time to write this so please consider it. 1) There is an opportunity with the axing of Aperture to get a whole lot of clients. Most use it as the RAW developer is just so good. i do. Good exposure limits tonal quality, hence ETTR. Aperture recovers the highlight detail the best via winding back the exposure. This gives better tonal detail in shadows. So the really have a look at how Affinity does this. A recovery slider like Adobe etc really is a joke as it just turns the brightness down. True detail is recovered with the exposure slider. 2) Don't pre adjust our RAWs when opening. Adobe RAW 2012 pre adjusts your images and especially ETTR when opening them. You cane even undo what they have done. This is incredibly arrogant, just stunningly stupid. It neglects the fact that correct exposure in digital limits tonal range. it's just physics. 3) Don't allow computer nerds to dictate. Ask some photographers, not amateurs, actually people that understand the physics. 4) Make you software able to record and play actions like Photoshop does. It's one thing i miss in Aperture. 5) Its very unlikely you will be able to complete head to head with Lightroom & Photoshop in the sort term, even though the Lightroom RAW uses the 2012 Adobe version which pre-adjusts your RAWs. So make your RAW developer able to be used as a plugin, I would use it if it works as well as Aperture RAW engine, even the Capture 1 version. 6) get some Photographers on your side, if you do, we tell everyone and give you free promotion as we are passionate about our art and the quality of how software treats our work. lastly, here's some links I would recommend, probably begs you to have a look at as it will help, also what the guygowan.com videos. As said, you have an opportunity to take the market in RAW development as Adobe and Apple seem to have no interest in real photography. https://luminous-landscape.com/expose-right/ http://www.guygowan.com/focus https://alangraemethompson.wordpress.com/2015/01/17/the-disaster-of-adobe-raw-2012-developer/
