As far as i can see, there are no categories defined ! You need at least one to save your macro into.

Well, there should at least exist a "Default" category.
Clicking on "create new category" doesn't show a popup, it immediately creates a new category named "macros" which you can rename to whatever.

i now tried to import a .afmacros file nad got this error message...

in the facebook group i was suggested to reset the user so the default category would show up.. but it doesnt.

What should the format of macros be? I suppose it's .afmacros?

If I click on "Library" -> Arrow top right -> "Create new category" nothing happens at all.

Yes. And that error message suggests that your download of the .afmacros file did not work properly. I would download it again.

Still, you may need a category in order for the import to succeed.

Close APhoto

Use File manager to locate and delete this propcol file

%appdata%\Affinity\Photo\1.0\user\macros.propcol

Restart APhoto and try again

No. That one is needed. It's part of the program itself. You need to be fixing the copy it makes for you.

If you press the Windows key and R, and type or paste %AppData%\Affnity\Photo\1.0\user into the Run box, and press enter, you should get a File Explorer window pointing to the right directory.

Hmm... there might be the issue... I don't find an \1.0\ folder...

There is a macros.propcol file under C:\Program Files\Affinity\Photo\Resources\Affinity Photo
Would it be a wise idea to delete that one?

No do not delete that one

Do you know what we mean when we say %appdata% ?

Do you have this folder ?

%appdata%\Affinity\Photo\1.0\

If you've deleted that file from Program Files, you should restore it. Or reinstall the program completely.

I don't believe to have deleted it. And I tried reinstalling it already - that didn't help.

I followed the guide with Windows key and R - I get the message "Path not Available" I will try to uninstall again install it again...

Do you think it would be necessary to clean out specific folders which might reamain?

Try this...

If you press the Windows key and R, and type or paste %AppData% into the Run box, and press enter, you should get a File Explorer window 

Do you then see a folder called Affinity on the right hand side

I'm reopening this thread because I'm facing the same issue on macOS 11 Big Sur with Affinity Photo 1.8.6 (my system is in French). The library panel is empty and I cannot save new macros or create new categories.

When I reset the settings (launching Photo with a right-click while pressing the Ctrl button), the macros are working but they are gone once I restart the program and I cannot save macros anymore until I reset the settings again... Any idea?
