Affinity Photo 2 Layer Styles From 1 Missing

Recommended Posts


I searched for an answer to this for about an hour through the forum but was unable to see if it was mentioned anywhere so I apologize if it is addressed somewhere and I missed it.

I am relatively new to Affinity and upgraded a few months ago. I am wondering what happened to the layer styles from

version 1?



All I get now with version 2 is


Did I do something wrong in installation? I tried a reset with the ctrl start and reset all apps as I have designer and publisher as well but had no effect.

Is there a way to import the version 1 styles?

You didn’t do anything wrong; the Styles in V2 were changed.

You can export the old styles from the V1 application and import them into the V2 application via the Styles Panel ‘hamburger’ icon (top right of the panel).

If you no longer have the V1 application installed you can import the old styles from the attached file.

Version 1 Default.afstyles
