Add macros to the library doesn't work


Recommended Posts

Hi,

When I tried to add a macro to the library, I have the windows to set the categorie and the name but after, nothing happen. The library doesn't show my macro.

Thanks.

 

Version of Affinity 1.10.5 on MacOs Monterey Version 12.4

Hi Xaalisaart,

Welcome to the forums :)

Please could you tell me if you are trying to import a .afmacro or .afmacros file? Does the macro appear in the Macro panel after import? If possible could you provide a screen recording demonstrating this issue?

Thanks

Please could you try renaming your assets.propcol file to assets.propcol.old and then try saving a Macro to see if it works correctly. The file location for the .propcol file changes depending on the store you purchased Affinity from. You can find the different paths for these files below.

Mac App Store:
/Users/username/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinityphoto/Data/Library/Application Support/user/macros.propcol

Affinity Store:
/Users/username/Library/Application Support/Affinity Photo/user/macros.propcol

Thanks

I cannot find the macros.propcol under either of the paths. I purchased photo on the App Store and in my library i can neither find a containers folder nor a Application support folder. Any ideas? Thanks Peer

Hello, you have to change the username in the path given by Callum. For exemple if your mac username is Toto you have to search for:

/Users/Toto/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinityphoto/Data/Library/Application Support/user/macros.propcol

So, I finally found the macros.propcol under

/users/username/library/Containers/Affinity Photo/Data/Library/Application Support/user/macros.propcol

I renamed it to macros.propcol.old and then it worked.

Thanks for the help
