Backup and restore Affinity Settings, Workspace, Shortcuts, etc

Recommended Posts

Hi Twomen,

It is possible for you to create back ups of Styles, Brushes and keyboard shortcuts in the latest beta. 

 

Being able to create backups of the workspace has been requested before so this could well be something we see added in the future. :)

How does one back up styles, brushed and keyboard shortcuts?

Hi evtonic, 

You can back up the keyboard shortcuts by going into Affinity Designer>Preferences>Keyboard Shortcuts, here you will see a 'Save' option, just click that and then use the 'Load' option when you want to import them back in. 

As for Brushes, when you have the brushes tab selected you should see an icon with 4 lines to the right, that will allow you to import/export brushes

And Styles, it might be worth taking a look at this thread :)

Is there a way to export all brushes in one take, all assets in one take etc.? It seems I have to export every single category to seperate files. 

 

I think a way to backup and restore all individual aspects including workspace etc. is very much needed, esp. because there is a lot of switching between beta and release versions right now.

Would be really great to have an settings export / import feature baked in.

On Windows it should work to backup the appdata folder(s): C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Affinity.

But i've not yet tried to restore the settings.
