Search in integrated help is broken (shows always the same result)

Recommended Posts

I open the help:


Then I type "couleur" (Color) in the search field:


I hit Enter.

I obtain only 1 result for Affinity Photo 2 and moreover, the result has nothing to do with colors (In fact, whatever I search, the help for Affinity Photo 2 show always the same result: "Appliquer une déformation à l'aide de Liquify Persona").


And clicking on this unique result for the search on Affinity Photo 2 returns on the first pane:


Searching for "selection"?


The result for the help about "selection" in Affinity Photo 2 is about "Liquify Persona", and clicking doesn't work (return to the main page for search in Affinity Photo help).

I don't know if the bug is only when the system is French.

Halas, forcing English langage for Affinity Photo (in Mac settings) doesn't work for the help pane which use the system language which is French:



So I don't know if the bug is only on the French version.

Try out the Online Help systems instead, contents should be the same and reused on those.

It's a bug in macOS, I think. And I'm sure I've seen it reported here before, but I can't find the reports right now.

Thanks for your report @quark67!

I can confirm that as above, this is a known issue which has been reported to our team to be resolved in a future update.

I'll be sure to 'bump' this with our team now, to bring it to their attention once again.

I hope this helps :)
