Hi, Just curious why I am not seeing any thumbnails in the templates when I have the folder set to the free "Iconic Templates". They were visible previously on my last rig however now in both Publisher and Designer they are not visible. I am on the latest version of both 1.8.3.641 on Windows 10. See below. It isn't a big deal just driving me a little ocd not having them show. They all work and can be seen as thumbnails in explorer.

Thanks,

Rob

The Iconic templates are not Template files (.aftemplate), but simply .afdesign files. The installation instructions, if I remember correctly, tell you to Open them in order to use them. To make them Templates, that can be used as formal Templates during File > New, you would need to change the file extensions from .afdesign to .aftemplate.

(I think this set of templates was created before Affinity had formal Template support. If they were being created now they probably would probably be done as .aftemplate files instead of .afdesign.)

Cool, yeah that's what I was thinking as they showed up in the Designer install on my last rig. Wasn't sure if both filenames were "previewable" in the new templates box out. Thanks.
