Transferring brushes, text, presets across Window account same computer

Recommended Posts

Windows 10

I have my Affinity Photo setup on my laptop under my account, but made a second account on the same computer for a family member to use my device. I'm trying to teach them to use Affinity and would like all of my preferences - brushes, texts, setup, ect -- on her account. Computer automatically made it so she can access the application but set her version to factory presets. Same device, didn't have to redownload the program or anything

Quick way to get all my brushes and fonts so she can access them?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums.

The fonts are installed in the system, so they should be available to everyone on the PC.

The basic preferences (including Brushes, Assets, etc.) are located in %AppData%\Affinity\Photo\1.0\user (you can paste that into the location bar in File Explorer, or press the Windows key and R and paste it in there), and you could copy that "user" directory to your family member's equivalent location. You'll get some additional preferences (including toolbar setup and studio layout) if you copy over the full  %AppData%\Affinity\Photo\1.0 directory.

Note: This assumes you have purchased Photo from the Affinity Store. If you purchased from the Microsoft Store then the location of the directory is different. In that case, rather than "1.0" try "1.0 (Store)".
