Exporting/Reopening Affinity Templates Issue

Recommended Posts

Hi! I’m hoping I can get some clarification on exporting a file as an Affinity Template and then trying to reopen it again. I created a few template for a tutorial and used the “export as template” option. I saved the template to a folder in iCloud Drive and then closed the file in Affinity. I was under the assumption that in order to open the file again in the app, I could wither “open from cloud” or import from cloud.” But whenever I try the files are grayed out and I am not able to select them. The only way I seem to be able open the file in the app again is to go to the folder in iCloud Drive, select the file and then choose to use Affinity Photo to open it. I feel as though I am missing something. Can anyone clarify what I am doing wrong?

if you want to create a document based on the template: (or are you trying to 'edit' an existing template? In which case do same thing, edit and export as template again.🙂
