Affinity Photo saving multiple copies of file

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to Affinity Photo so I apologise if the behaviour below is normal (I did search FAQ's)

I navigated to the folder containing the file I am working on to find multiple copies of the file. It looks like each time I have pressed 'cmd S' a new version of the file has been created, kind of like 'Save as'. Is this normal for Affinity Photo? It doesn't do this behaviour in Affinity Designer. Is it some kind of versioning? Or is it a bug? I'm saving in iCloud Drive.

Hi and welcome to the forums @redtom,

I use Mac but I don't use the iCloud feature for anything other than email. This is probably an iCloud problem. You may be saving it to your desktop and having the file duplicated. Hopefully someone more versed in the use of iCloud will chip in with actually useful advice. My "I don't use it and so can't help you" isn't actual advice.

MacBook Pro (13-inch, Mid 2012) Mac OS 10.12.6 || Mac Pro (Late 2013) Mac OS 10.14.6

Affinity Designer 1.9.0 | Affinity Photo 1.9.0 | Affinity Publisher 1.9.0 | Beta versions as they appear.

Thanks @Old Bruce. I'll save to the ssd rather than iCloud for now then, I don't want to risks losing any data. Good to know its a bug, not a feature.

I'll submit a bug report too.
