Garden-User Posted November 15, 2022 Share Posted November 15, 2022 Hello People, I think I found a critical Bug in the Photo 2 Application: We are currently Testing Affinity Photo 2. Since BOTH 1 and 2 use the same file Format we assumed, that they are compatible with each other. That is sadly not the Case. We have opened a afphoto file in Photo 2 and edit the HSL Color, what both 1 and 2 support, saved the file and tryed to Open it with Photo 1 expecting it to open just fine, because well NORMAL behavior. Nope We get the nice Error: "The file includes features from a later version of Affinity." WHY is there NO WARNING in Photo 2 that the file will not be usable in Version 1 even if you don´t use any of the new Features? This should NEVER ever happen. There should be either: A: Totally new file format so that you can´t render Affinity 1 Files useless. B: A Message in Affinity 2 when saving that says "This file includes features that are not compatible with Version 1. Do you wish to save under a new Name?" or maybe something similar (can be disabled in the options) C-> Let Affinity 1 open that File and let it open what it can read with a Warning. I mean I can open a Photoshop psd file and have edit functions so why not the same? Because FUN FACT, IF you copy the entire File (the Layers) in Affinity 2 and in Affinity 1 click on "New from Clipboard" ALL Layers will be copied and with full edit mode on them like they are on Affinity 2 even with the modified HSL Color. So there is clearly an Error here. Hope that this bug / error will get fixed soon and this Topic will then be useless Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
