Create Asset Function Problem

Recommended Posts

To create an Asset, the instruction is:

  1. Drag the selection into the Assets panel (the cursor will change to show a plus icon).
  2. On the Assets panel, click a subcategory's options menu and select Add from Selection

    Option #1 does not work.   Option #2 does work.

Thanks so much for the info.  I'm OK with just using option 2, I just couldn't figure out why option didn't work.  Now that I know it only works on MAC, I understand.

I'm new to Designer, so I am trying every function and tool one by one for learning.

We have made fixes/improvements to this area (Cannot drag objects into Assets) of the program in the latest Windows customer beta of Affinity Photo and/or Affinity Designer. If you would like to try these changes the beta software is available in the forum posts listed below.

The beta builds are in links at the top of these beta forum posts.

Once these programs have been through a full beta process the change will be released in a future free 1.8.0 update/patch to all customers.
