I was working on a file for a client in the Trial Version of Affinity Designer.

I saved the document and closed Affinity. 

When I reopened, I was alerted that my trial had ended, so I purchased the full version. However, I am unable to open the document I was working on in the Trial version.


Is there a way to open up files in the full version that were created in the trial version???




I need to edit this graphic for a client ASAP.

Hi nlewis203,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Yes, you should be able to open files created with the Trial with the Mac App Store version.

What happens when you go to menu File ▸ Open and select the file you were working on (or drag it from the Finder to Affinity)?

You can also right-click the file and select Open With ▸ Affinity Photo(or Designer).app

Does it display an error?


If you already bought the full version, go to your Applications folder in Finder and drag the trial to the Trash to uninstall it.
