Close or Quit Affinity after use?

Recommended Posts

I am very new to Affinity and have a query about closing it.

My main computer is an Apple M1 iMac running Mac OS Monterey.

Affinity Photo launches correctly from the icon in the dock and operates as it should but if I then ‘close’ Affinity using the red button I cannot re-launch it unless I ‘quit’ it fully first.

I also have another iMac running Mac OS Catalina and it behaves in the same way.

Is this the way Affinity is intended to operate?

Hi PineMan,

This is because hitting the Red close button just closes the active window and not the actual software. If you select the apps icon you should notice the bar along the top of your mac changes to once that says Affinity Photo at the top left corner. If you go to File > New from this menu the app will re open.
