  1. Because the sync was not done on my devices, I deleted the affinity files from iCloud. Then by reactivating everything, I was surprised to see 2 Affinity Publisher files. They are absolutely identical. If I delete a file in one folder it gets deleted in the other. This error only appears on my iMac. On my Macbook the folder does not appear duplicate. Vincent Muller
  2. When saving a file, Affinity Photo is creating a separate file each time I press cmd S, almost like saving as. I noticed this when I navigated to the folder I had saved my file to and found lots of copies of the file. I am saving to iCloud Drive. As I'm a newbie I thought this might be a versioning feature but I have since found that it shouldn't be happening. Tom
  3. Quick Background: I have Affinity Photo for both iPad and Mac and use is since 2017 (on and off as hobby). My main use is on the iPad and since 2019 i've started making big files (10.000px vs 7.000px) and many layers, some files are 1GB. I've had many crashing issues in the last 4 months (with older Affinifity Photo versions, then i got tired and stopped using it) where i lost my lastest editing since it wasn't automatically saving the file on the iCloud Drive (had set it to 'Save on iCloud' and even sometimes i clicked 'save' it didn't save the file on iCloud, because after crashing i saw i lost 30min, 1h work. I've resolved it idiotically by doing 'Save a Copy' into iCloud by every major editing i did (and this with 500, 700MB files isn't ideal). So I've just deleted Affinity Photo from my Mac and iPad, also manually deleted the 'Affinity Photo' from both iCloud Drive & iPad Drive folders and also deleted the Backup Folder. Now i'm ready to start afresh and would love to hear how you deal with files and folders... specially people dealing with big files on the iPad: Where do you save your files: iPad or iCloud Drive directly? Do you use the 'Affinity Photo' folder or some external iCloud/iPad Folder? If I open a file from iCloud, anytime i click Save, will it save it over this file? or into the 'Affinity Photo' folder in the iPad or iCloud? i know it creates these folders once i've installed Affinity. How many projects/files do you have on your iPad? Once you finish an artwork, do you save it on iCloud/iPad/USB and then 'close' the file to cleanup Affinity? I've had 30+ projects open, so not sure if this was also helping to crash Affinity. thanks
  4. I'm having an odd problem - I'm not sure if it's iCloud itself or something related to Designer. Here's the issue: I took a Udemy class on my iPad. I created a subfolder under the iCloud Drive\Affinity Designer called Udemy [so iCloud Drive\Affinity Designer\Udemy] and stored all of my files in there. That worked fine on my iPad, and I could see and work with the files on my Mac just fine. On my PC, however, the iCloud Drive\Affinity Designer folder is there, with a couple of other subdirectories that I created from my PC (those also appear on my iPad and my Mac), but the iCloud Drive\Affinity Designer\Udemy folder has never shown up on my PC, even after a couple of days. I stopped all of my iCloud processes and then started up iCloud on the PC again, and it appears to be downloading files (the Apple Photo process is very busy), but the folder stall hasn't shown up. But here's the odd thing - if I go in and add a new directory from the PC called Udemy under Affinity Designer, the name magically and immediately changes to Udemy 2. To me, that says the PC knows that the Udemy subdirectory exists, it just refuses to show it in file explorer. If I open Designer on my PC and look at the iCloud Drive/Affinity Designer directory, it doesn't see the Udemy subdirectory either. Anybody have any ideas about what's going on?
  5. Hello, I recently noticed a bug in the file handling using Affinity Designer on macOS (v1.6.1) and iPad (v1.6.4.45). Once I create a document on my iPad, sync it via iCloud Drive, and double click it on my mac it automatically opens Affinity Photo. Steps to reproduce: Create a document on Affinity Designer iPad Safe the file (with the option activated to safe to iCloud Drive) There will be a new folder created in iCloud Drive named "Affinity Designer" with the file inside Open the file on macOS using double click Affinity Photo opens instead of Designer The strange thing is that the iCloud Drive folder is named "Affinity Designer", but has the Photo app icon on it. Also the newly created files are all set to open with Affinity Photo in the Finder's info panel, hence Designer is the default. When I try to change it back to Designer nothing happens. (as seen in the attachment) Seems like a system problem, but I guess there might be something wrong the way the iPad creates the iCloud Drive connection? Does anyone else have this problem? Or is there a way to fix it? Kind regards, Alex Screen Recording.mp4
  6. Hi everybody, í´m using an ipad pro 10.5 and 12.9, both with iOS 12.1.1 When i open iCloud Drive on my ipad pro 12.9, Affinity Designer is showing the same folder icon like Affinity Photo. This is confusing. The ipad pro 10.5 displays the correct Designer icon. The iphone x displays the correct icon too. Is there a solution for this problem? Thanks...
  7. 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
  8. Honestly, I don't know if this is a bug in Designer iPad, some dumb thing I have done, or what but compare these 2 screenshots, the first from the Files app on my iPad & the second from my Mac's Finder: Each of the 3 folders have the same files when opened either in Files.app on the iPad or in Finder, including the badged Affinity Photo folder that for some reason is not showing the number of items in it in the Finder view. I am reasonably sure they really are the same because if I change the file name either on the Mac or on the iPad, that name is updated on the other device within a few seconds. The same is true for the date modified info if I edit the file on either device. Another strange thing, & possibly a clue about the above, is that on the iPad Affinity Designer Home screen if I tap on 'Open From Cloud' & navigate to the badged Affinity Designer folder, either of the files in it open for editing as expected. However, from the Files app if I go to the same folder & tap on either file, all I get is a full screen preview with a "Done" & the Share options. For the badged Affinity Photo folder, from the Files app tapping on a file opens it in in Photo. That is what I expected to happen with the Designer folder too, so I do not understand why they behave differently.
  9. Why iPad version of Affinity saves projects in app instead of icloud drive affinity folder, i guess the ipad version should link it main screen to affiniy photo folder in icloud file app, if i update from ipad i can use same on mac, but in this case i have to export project to icloud drive in order to use it on mac, and if i forget to export then i cant open that project on mac, same as if i export that project in icloud and edit it on mac then i want to do something on ipad with same file then ill have to open from icloud and that copies to ipad version but not updating the icloud version, with this practice the more i import the more copies ill get on ipad version, which is quiet waste of space.
  10. A question just occurred to me when thinking about how iCloud will work with the suite. Affinity shares the same file format across all the apps right? So in other words I will be able to open my Affinity Designer files in Affinity Photo? If that is the case then how does sandboxed iCloud storage work? If I save one of my Affinity Designer files in the iCloud sandbox then when I go to Affinity Photo it won't be in the Affinity Photo sandbox.
