Sorry if this question has been asked before (couldn't find anything by search)

I realized that even after installing the affinity product on my D-drive, assets seem to be stored on the C-drive.

Question: Might it be possible sometime in the future (or is it now) to place assets/product downloads in a location chosen by the user?



Thanks in advance.


Best regards,

The Affinity applications do not, today, provide a function to allow you to change where the assets and other resources (brushes, styles, settings, ....) are placed on your Windows system. They might, in the future, and I'm sure it has been requested in the Feedback forums.

In the meantime, if you choose to take some risk and run an unsupported configuration, I've done some experimenting to show that you can use Windows functions to move them. Please see the post below, and the posts it references, for more info on this.
