Since I updated to mac OS 10.15.1 Catalina, I observe, that Affinity Photo denies using images: Message: no permission. After repairing permissions, files are opened, but I cannot export the files nor can I save the same. Has anybody the same problem and knows how to overcome?

You searched for a forum? It has been solved here several times.

I must get used to searching topics

There is a lot of discussion in the forum - so it is pointless to ask questions again and wait for someone to answer the same question again.

I recommend searching through Google, sometimes provides significantly more relevant results:

"Catalina permission site:forum.affinity.serif.com"

It seems your expertise exceeds most of the newbie or some regulars that post on this forum, especially the perceived tone.  The “Go To Standard” for all Affinity products is this great forum, not Google.  Forum search can narrow down to requested question, it’s not perfect, hit or miss.   Most of the forum members reply, provide their knowledge to help, not suggest Google or provide a screen shot or short video. If the questions irritates or annoys your expertise, skip and move on, IMHO.  Sorry that my post comes across arrogant as I denote in your replies.

You have noticed that my Google search link is a search "on the Affinity Forum". It only gives quite often more relevant results, so I present it as an alternative option to search the forum. Let the OP choose the way that suits him better, just as you probably chose (after much experience I prefer searching with Google).

I do not know why I should not answer the OP when I know that this problem has been solved here several times. As a Windows user, however, they cannot advise him in more detail, so I just referred him to a forum search - what's wrong with that?

I hope that he has already found a solution to his problem. By the way, my advice is first in 5 hours, no one else has given him any detailed advice, information,video or screenshot, including you.

Otherwise, as you probably know from my profile, I have to use the services of a translator. Because it certainly does not always provide excellent results, so I try to formulate sentences as short as possible - to contain mainly the basic facts (as I hope :-) I intentionally avoid "Shakespeare english", so my contributions can then look/appear austere. I think it's better than a translator to create nonsense.

No, it is not pointless, as many post are repetitious.  Questions are summited for answers, assistance.  Five hours, across many Time Zones, is reasonable.  Weekends adds to the extended time.

Hey, no reason to become evil ;-) 
I checked the solutions, went thru most recommendations, however, no permissions where given, so I have to continue searching for a proper way to solve this problem for me. I am quite an experienced Apple user and I had some problems with permissions, which came from mac OS side. So I did not used the forum here jet. Also I worked many Jeans with Adobe progs. and I have to get used to the Affinity style, also in the form. Affinity progs are the best, that happened to me in the last year, as I am retired and cannot afford expensive Adobe progs anymore. So please understand, that I opened a new topic. By the way, these problems appeared only after I updated to Catalina, before no such problems were observed and I just enjoyed to work with Affinity programs.

Have a good time.

Regards

Sorry, but I definitely disagree with you. I find it an unnecessary waste of time to wait a few hours and days for an answer, that I can find myself within five minutes. In addition to the speed of getting information, it brings me the satisfaction that I was able to solve the problem, and not that I finally got help from someone else. But we are all different :-)

Yes, Catalina is causing many problems - not just in Affinity applications.

@flying_2000 did you verify Apple System Preferences, Extensions, that Affinity Photo is authorized?  I hesitated to offer this in your original post, as I do not know if it will solve your problem.  The forum has macOS members that I hope will offer you assistance.  BTW, my intention was not to be evil, just expressing my opinion.

Hi Cecil and Pšenda,

it seems, as if Pšendas hint solved the problem. In the "Preferences > Extensions", all permissions for Affinity were given. So I will observe the situation and hope that the behavior will stay stable. Thank you both for yr help.
