AFFINITY DESIGNER 1.9 UPDATE TURNED THE FILE PREVIEW TO ICON


Recommended Posts

I was running ipad OS 14.2 when I updated Affinity Designer 1.9. That update changed all my .afdesign files preview to AD icon. I can't see previews anymore.

Tried to solve the problem by deleting the App then updating the ipad to the latest 14.4, then re-installing the latest Affinity Designer app, but still, that does'nt solve it.

I can't work without the files preview cos I named all my .afdesign files in running number (see attached).

Can somebody help please? Thank you.

That‚Äôs a real pain.ūüôĀ

If you access the Design folder with Files app do you see previews? If not, Its possible that you have installed another app that has possibly taken control of this preview feature. For what it’s worth, I can still see previews of the afdesign files on my iPad after updating.

As an example, Adobe apps have had a habit of affecting Affinity. Any of those installed recently?

I cant see previews in Files App and also in Affinity Designer. I have just deleted all vector related apps then rebooted the ipad but still couldnt see previews.

Any other ideas??

What files can you see a preview of?

Do you have Affinity Photo installed?

I could see previews of photo files, pdf, and others but not the .afdesign files, only AD icons appeared. I have not installed Affinity Photo.

I have deleted most of my designin Apps, only left with some unrelated apps.

I‚Äôm out of ideasūü§Ē

It‚Äôs very odd but sounds like an iOS issue more than an Affinity issue. I can only suggest deleting any apps that you have installed since the update. Maybe the mods or another user will have a better recommendation. ūüôĀ
