Launchpad - Removal of Affinity Photo Beta icon

Recommended Posts

The Affinity Photo Beta icon in Launchpad remains and I can't fathom out how to delete it. I presumed that when I bought the App that the Beta icon would of disappeared.

The Affinity Photo Beta isn't listed in my Apps, just the Affinity Photo. Still can't get rid of the icon in Launchpad :-(

In the Launchpad, hold down the alt (or option if you prefer) key, and the icons start to "wiggle" around with an "x" on top of the icon, just click the x to delete that application..

After the wiggle there is no X, instead I get a window stating "Beta Expired. This bet has expired - please download the latest beta to continue testing". Two boxes stating DOWNLOAD and OK.

 

I then tried to download, thinking that once it's downloaded I should be able to delete it. Unfortunately I'm informed the Beta versions have now ended. So still stuck with the Affinity Photo Beta icon in the launchpad.

I've just dragged an icon from my dock and as I moved it, a Remove? tab appeared.

When I drag to the trash it bounces back to the original position in the Launchpad.

I believe this is a Mac issue.  Apps that are not downloaded from the App Store do not have the X to delete from the Launch pad.  Most will disappear if you drag them from the App Folder to the Trash, but some remain.  I've done some googling, and the best I've come up with is a work around that I have a folder with all the icons from deleted apps.  

Could be wrong, but I think this is NOT an Affinity issue.
