  1. So, I try to import a macro in my program and this window appears but I don't even know where this file is located or if it even exists? I would like to copy them in this file so they could be linked anywhere on my mac or my iPad in a near future. To specify, I think it requires to copy my macros into this unknown file to be able to import them at all.
  2. I have seen some strange behavior with Affinity Publisher and Apple's iCloud. In some versions of the beta an Affinity Publisher folder appears aloneside the Designer and Photo folders in iCloud, in some versions it does not appear at all. In the last few versions the Affinity Publisher folder is there, it's just invisible. If I move from a standard Mac view to show invisible files, the Publisher folder appears and is accessible. If I go back to a normal view, that folder disappears, although the contents are available from an open file dialogue box. The attached video shows an iCloud folder going from a normal view to showing invisible files. Affinity Publisher invisible folder.mp4
  3. I’m looking at moving away from Adobe, but one thing I use a LOT is the sync between devices and the desktop, across the cloud. is this ability native to Affinity? thanks
  4. Hello and thank you for such great work on the Affinity Products! I am repeatedly having an issue with iCloud synching. Problem: When I make changes to a file on my macbook pro and save the file to iCloud, in a subfolder within the default Affinity folder, the changes seem to stay on my mac, even though the upload icon indicates the file is now in the cloud. The file image preview on my iPad Pro updates to reflect the changes, however when I open it, it's like the file never updated. I get the previous version of the file. I even tried making more changes to the file on my macbook, saving again, checking for the file to upload and for the image preview on the iPad to update again, yet again when I open the file on iPad it's the old version of the file without any of the new changes. History It's the second time I've noticed this, and it seems files saved on iPad do update and open well on MacBook, but not the other way around. I already lost a lot of work on a document after the cloud seemed to have saved the larger, more recent file, but then it was replaced with the older file (thankfully had a png export that is all I need right now)... and now working on a new design, I have to Airdrop Designer files in order to open the updated file on my iPad. Is this an iCloud or Affinity settings issue that I can flip a switch to fix? If so, why does the image preview update on both devices? Or Is the problem a bug in iCloud / Designer? Glad to help with any tests or to provide more input. Thank you for your reply!!
  5. Hey, I've just started using both Affinity Designer and Photo on iPad. I think both apps should better integrate with Apple's "Files" extension/app! This should lead to an easier cross platform and app exchange. The current solution with "open from cloud" and "import from cloud" are confusing and don't work as I would expect. My idea was that using the "open" option it just saves any changes I made directly back to the "Files" app (no matter if the document is located in iCloud Drive, Dropbox, iPad or some other location). There could be a little icon next to the document (in the overview), that indicates that it is linked/located to the "Files" app. So you can easily distinguish between app documents and documents in the Cloud (or any other location). In this case the wording of "close" (in the popup menu of the document overview) would also make more sense. When "importing" the file I would expect that the app creates a copy of the document inside the app. To save it back to "Files" I would have to press the "Save" button in the document overview. I tested it and this isn't the case. What is the actual difference between "open from cloud" and "import from cloud"? The icons are also extremely confusing to spot a difference. Thanks for making great Pro software available on iPad! Cheers! PS: Hope the label translations are right, as I use Affinity in German.
  6. Hi, im new to affinity designer iPad and I want to know if there is a way for it to automatically save to iCloud. At the moment it save to my iPad and then I have to save a copy to iCloud but I end up with two versions. thanks for any help.
  7. Import from ICloud or Open from iCloud doesn’t recognize my photos in iCloud. Says I have zero items. Apple tech said its the App not them. Please help. I’ve spent so many hours trying to fix, spent time with super yappy tech person at Apple all to find out, that their end checks out, but yours doesn’t.
  8. Hi all! It's currently not possible to create multiple nested folders in either Affinity folder inside iCloud Drive. Only one level is allowed whereas most apps permit multiple subfolders now. I mean, I can't organize my assets like: - iCloud Drive - Affinity Photo - My Awesome Project - The Awesome Icons of the Awesome Project - And so on... Are there any plans to allow this? Thanks!
  9. I'm trying to understand the Affinity Photo iCloud Drive setup... I've set to save all my files on iCloud Drive from Affinity Photo and its working fine, but... The Affinity Photo folder appears only on the Files app in my iPad; Its hidden and i can't access it on my iPhone (Files app), Laptop (iCloud folder) and even online (icloud.com)... the "Affinity Photo" folder is missing. So... if I lose my iPad... its gone? until i buy a new iPad? right? I guess it must be a hidden folder for some reason (so i don't mess the files up?) I'm currently leaving my finished and unfinished files in the iPad's iCloud Drive / Affinity Photo Folder. But since this folder is hidden everywhere, i can't call this a proper backup, since i need an iPad to access it. BTW: I move my artworks into an external USB HB (with Backblaze backup) only once a year (in december) in a very arduous process that i know i have to improve. I used to work with Pixelmator, which i have for iPad, iPhone and MacOS, and its iCloud Folder is synced on all my devices. My options/questions: 1) Isn't there a way to unhide this folder to actually be a shared iCloud folder? 2) Or an option to always save new files into another iCloud folder that i've created (and is shared everywhere)? On the screenshot's below you can see i've already created an AffinityPhotoShared folder, but just exported some files, not sure how to best proceed here... 3) If I buy the Affinity for MacOS app, the Affinity Photo iCloud folder on MacOS would be the same / shared? So my files would appear there (guess it could/should be different... or have an option to be the same shared folder for macOS and iPad) Screenshots: a) iPad Files: showing the Affinity Photo folder (with the icon and 11 items) b) Laptop iCloud drive, even showing the 'hidden folders' (CMD+SHIFT+.) it doesn't show AP's folder: Thanks a lot!
  10. So I have both Affinity Photo & Designer. I first bought Designer and used it for a couple days and then went onto buying Photo. When I was saving a picture to iCloud that I was woking on, I noticed that there wasn't a Affinity Photo folder, and only a Affinity Designer folder. Does anyone else have this issue?
  11. Hi! I have trouble importing RAW-files to my iPad Pro (12,9, 2nd gen) running iOS 10. I have uploaded NEF-files to Google Drive from my Nikon D300. The problem is that they won't open. If I try to open them from GD with the "open in app"-command, nothing happens. And if I navigate to GD from within Affinity Photo the NEF-files are greyd out and cannot be opened. I tried to send a file to iCloud Drive but it too is grey and cannot be opened. I converted one of the files to a jpeg. and it opened just fine from GD. Looking forward to your reply, thanks! - Tuukka
  12. So I’ve been having problems trying to export my files. When it gives me the options of where to save the file, it doesn’t give me the full menu breakdown and when I do select one of the few brief options the jpeg file isn’t anywhere to be found. I’ve attached images displaying my issue and any help or explanation would really be appreciated
  13. Hi. I am super excited about the 1.6.7 update that brought better iCloud integration. I have few issues / questions. Is it possible to save file directly to Affinity Photo folder on iCloud — seems to be grayed out to me whenever I try. How to fetch a changes to the file on iPad? Lets say that I create a file on iPad. Save it to the iCloud drive. Do some changes on this file on a desktop. I would like to coma back to this file and continue working on that. It doesn't do any update in a background although the update file is waiting in a cloud fully downloaded. There is such a thing as "fetch file" od "update file" or "sync file". The only way it to close import this document again from iCloud to AP and we are ending up with a duplicated file. Am I doing something wrong? Are these know bugs? I have a solution / suggestion for issue no 2. Currently these is no clear differentiation between files kept locally on the iPad and files mapped to files on iCloud drive. My suggestion would be ti introduce to the apps UI iconography that show three things (presented on an attached prototype). File is mapped to the iCloud (and versions match). File is mapped to the iCloud and is ready to update iCloud version. File is mapped to the iCloud and is ready to fetch changes from iCloud version. Thanks in advance for help.
  14. Hi, just purchased Affinity Photo and run it on IPad Pro 2017. Two problems: 1. when trying to open raw files from my Canon 40D via icloud photolibrary the apps exits. The photos are shown correctly in my apple photos app though 2. photo shares of my friends are shown in the import dialog together with photos from my own icloud photo library. However, when trying to open those shared photos the app continues loading them forever. At the same time i can open the fotos without any delay in the native ios photos app. Any fix? If not, i will have to recall the purchase, unfortunately
  15. When I export an Affinity file on iCloud, I just loses its history. Can’t find a way to keep it. When I reopen it, it’s the file without the history. If I instead duplicate it within the app, it maintains it if I select that option. I am new to the app so probably I’m doing something wrong. Is it possible to export the file WITH history to the cloud?
  16. Hello there, a feature i would love to see is one that apple uses in their iWork apps to create real-time collaboration among multiple people. A feature like this would be amazing and it would leap-frog excisting collaboration features in other software.
  17. I'm unable to see non iCloud cloud storage options like Lightroom cloud or Adobe CC. I only see iCloud and Google Drive when i press + option. I watched tutorial that showed many cloud storage options as compatible. Please let me know what i'm doing wrong . Thanks jack
  18. Sorry if this is repeat question - Im wondering what exactly iCloud Automatic Backup saves when I enable it on iPad and on Affinity ? I understand currently, the only option to backup/save files is to copy/export each project, so I dont understand what the backup app on iCloud does. Thanks
  19. I am using affinity version 1.6.4 on the iPad Pro (newest version) I am having trouble with importing raw flies into affinity from either iCloud or google drive. I can access both from affinity but the files are grayed unable to be selected. I'm using a Nikon d750.
  20. Good morning, afternoon, or evening. If have been using AP on my iPad she nice its release and am on the current version From the beginning I have not seen the AP folder on iCloud when attempting to import or export a project, as I have seen in tutorials and screenshots. Yesterday I was working with AP on my MacBook and noticed the AP folder had appeared in my iCloud Drive. The morning, I started up AP on my iPad with the intention of continuing some work on a project I had started on my MacBook. When looked at the iCloud when attempting to import the project the AP folder was missing. In an attempt to investigat further, I used the iCloud Drive app for n my iPhone. There it was, the AP folder, contents intact. The iCloud Drive app on my iPad does not show the folder. Nor does the AP app. Just thought I'd report my findings. Thanks for a great product. B
  21. Hi, Just downloaded the iPad version (already have the Mac version). Looks awesome, however I can't see the Affinity Photo folder in iCloud on my iPad. Shows up in finder and is accessible from my Mac. Any ideas?
  22. I only get a solid dark screen after opening a .dng from iCloud...? Metadata is displayed, but no image. Files are from the Phantom 4 Pro. (40mb) I hoped to be able to work with these on iPad Pro, but not having any luck. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks! Screen shot below.
  23. I have bought Affinity Photo for iPad and Mac. I created a composite on iPad (Oh My God! I love the AD on iPad). I see the document when I start AD on iPad, but CANNOT see it in AD on Mac. I know this question has been asked many many times (search reveals a lot of them), but hard to tell if the bug is fixed or not. On iPad and Mac, when I go to iCloud drive ->Manage, I have Affinity Photo checked -- just clarifying that before anyone asks the question. Am I doing something wrong OR is this a bug yet to be resolved? If it's a bug, I just need to know so that I don't waste time tinkering it to make it work. Thanks in advance everyone.
