Hi all,

 

Is there a way in the dialogs for Export and even Save As...to have the filename show the extension?  It just shows the filename, and I like to see the extension on all file saves I do on programs.

Is there a way when you save as or export say...a TIFF file that on the save dialog where it shows the directory, etc..that at the top the filename ends with the .tiff extension in the dialog?

 

I've tried looking in AP preferences, but I don't see anything like a toggle to show extensions....

 

Thank you in advance,

 

cayenne

I believe that this is an OS preference. On Mac it is in the Finder's Preferences  Finder > Preferences. I don't know where it is on Windows.

There is a tick box in the Affinity apps ‘General’ Preferences to automatically Hide or not to Hide the Affinity file extension on Save/Export.

Ah thank you...THIS was what I was looking for...and even when told where I almost missed it.

 

Why in the world is something like this turned OFF by default???

 

Anyway I found it and turned it off:

However, that still did NOT do it....when I did a save as, I got:

So...I went back to the first suggestion....and sure enough on my Finder Preferences....I had to turn ON the show filename extensions.

It now dawns on me, that this is a new computer and I guess I had not turned it on yet....as that that is first thing I usually do with all new computers (win or Mac)....and guess I had not done it here yet, although in all other finder windows I could already see file extensions.

 

UGH....

 

Anyway, thank you ALL for the suggestions, between these two settings, I got it working.

 

Have a great day and STAY SAFE!!!

Interestingly, this option is not in Windows.

This is probably due to the fact, that the Windows system dialog is used for SaveAs/Export, so its behavior (extension display) is controlled by the system settings.
