  1. This problem has been driving me nuts lately. Because of my hard drive only having a couple of GBs at most to work with since I use a lot of programs, I have come to rely on my other hard drives for storage space and only let the essential stuff run from my SSD. However, because I can't for some reason change the cache directory during a work session, I am constantly bombarded with this message since Affinity keeps using up my main SSD. Because of this I am constantly having to reload my projects. While nothing really gets lost since the program does successfully save, it is still a very, very annoying thing to have to deal with. It also doesn't help that because of lack of memory that my web browser keeps shutting down, so the problem keeps spreading because of the lack of a cache directory feature built into Affinity. I hope you consider having this as a high priority. Files can get quite big when working, so it would be to most people's benefit.
  2. Question: In Affinity Photo, is it possible to purge the cache / memory, similar to Adobe Photoshop's Purge Cache function? Issue/situation: I mostly work with focus stacked product images from the Hasselblad 100 camera which means the files often bounce around 1.5GB ( in full resolution and focus stacked ), and it would be a great help if I can purge the cache as I've notice Affinity Photo hogs up a lot of HDD space ( assuming for caches etc ) and on occasion I'm getting error messages that I am running low on space. I try and keep the open documents to a minimum but when doing client review and editing I need to flip between 2 - 10 different documents which is an issue. It has to be noted I do not have a large SSD but it's sufficient for everything else except when Affinity Photo churns through space for caches. Tried: I've searched the forum but not conclusive threads on the matter. Operating system: OSX Catalina 10.15.3 Affinity Photo: Version 1.8.3 Any help or input on this matter is much appreciated, as I'm considering moving from other editors to Affinity Photo. Thank you in advance. PS: if this post is in the wrong forum, then please let me know, and I will submit it in another.
  3. The desktop versions of Affinity Photo have an option under ‘Preferences’ for clearing the font cache, but the iPad version doesn’t seem to have this. Will it be added later, or isn’t it needed on iOS?
  4. Before I learnt that touching up of video frames can be accomplished with a macro I manually removed an object in 450 individual jpg-frames. That object was caused by a dirt on my lense in the upper part /center of the sky. First I opened 80 files at a time and got the program stuck. I tried to quit and got the message that a least one file is still in the opening process. I forced quit the program (cmd+alt+esc). (I just wanted to find out, what would happen.) After that test I opened 10 files at a time. After 300 files the program got sluggish. The opening process lasted longer than before. An then the opening process hung up. I tried to quit and got the message that a least one file is still in the opening process. I forced quit the program (cmd+alt+esc). After restart I could only open two times a range of 10 files. Than I had to force quit again. I suspect, that the program is running a garbage collection after restart and before opening any file. The basis for this assumption: When I move 10 files on the program-icon the program could either not open the next 10 i.e. it was not even possible to work on 20 files - or - it got stuck completely with those first 10. Therefore I suspect, that the program should first get a chance to clean up the cache. But during the cleanup process it seems that there are leftovers adding up. Over the laste weeks I have edited some 3000 JPGs without any problem. Usually I loaded10-20 files, each with 5-12MB. The only difference now is that many picture are pretty much alike. The only difference is the movement of the kite. I am working with Affinity Photo 1.6.6 on a MacBook Pro of 2014 . 16GB RAM, OSX 10.12.6 - no other program was open. Filesize of the JPGs = 210KB
  5. Hi This already raised its head in beta: Might be related to this and this (I didn't look further back in the bug reports). For me the following behaviour is consistent at the moment: - I can't open 6 jpeg files (ca. 8 MB each) by dragging them onto the AP icon - The files have not been worked on before - Force quitting AP and trying again doesn't help BUT - After restarting my Macbook I can open the same files as expected So it's a cache problem? (The message in the attachment is what I get when I try to close AP.)
  6. Hi, when I edit children of a Compound (live-boolean) object/group and select the parent object (the compound itself) then it sometimes shows an old (cached?) version of the children's path(s). This goes away once I edit (e.g. scale) the compound temporarily (and then revert back with "Undo"). It's a bit hard to describe in words. :D This does not happen all the time and I can't give clear steps for reproducing the issue (e.g. I couldn't reproduce it in a stand-alone test case; it just happens sometimes in my more complex files. Perhaps related to deeper nesting of the objects or something.) Basic Steps (sometimes triggers the issue, often it does not) 1. Select a child object of a compound group 2. Use Node tool to make some edits 3. Now select the compound object itself (in the layer list) Result Sometimes shows the old/ previous shape of the child (before edit) (blue line). regards, tokai Affinity Designer Version: 1.4 (Mac App Store)
  7. We have a user that is using Affinity 2.01.0132 and they deleted their Internet Explorer cache; which deleted their configuration. (This configuration allowed Affinity to choose a default folder location within the Laserfiche ECM application) Now under "GENERAL OPTIONS" their Configuration Location is set to "Local- For my profile only"; and the "Global" option is grayed out. I am wanting to switch the user to the "Global" configuration option so that I can use another known good users Affinity Profile. Also, how do I copy another users Affinity profile into this users configuration. Do I export and then import an XML file? If I can import another users Affinity configuration profile I think this will allow the user have the same settings as they did before they deleted their IE cache, along with their Affinity profile. Thanks,
