Asset Tab Being Shared at Two locations & Stock Tab Question.

Recommended Posts


I work on the same documents both at the office and home using a portable Hard Drive. I was wondering if was possible to link one Assets file on the portable HD so I don't have keep reloading assets to keep both locations updated? Also I have a large number of image files I use everyday and wondered if it's possible to use the stock window to link to a folder in your system or a portable HD for easy access and searching.

The answer to both is no. Sorry.

For the Assets you would have to, at a minimum, copy the assets.propcol file from one system to your portable drive while Affinity is not running, then copy it onto your other system while Affinity is not running. Then reverse the process if you make any updates, to get the changes onto your other system again.

Where you would copy it from or to depends on your OS and where you purchased.

Thanks Sir, for your reply.

I figured the was going to be the only way.

It would be an immense help to have the Asset tab allow me to choose my own file path for the assets.propcol file, and then read and write to the file at that location... no need to export, copy, paste, then delete the old, and import new. When my Asset library of advertised items contains 3000 plus products, the file size is massive, and time involved in this process becomes prolonged.

The same goes with the stock tab. It would be great to have it work the same as with Unsplash (for example), but instead just searching a website I can search a directory on a local drive containing my own image assets.
