Affinity designer trial autosaved?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I was using the trial of AFD recently when it crashed and had to be force-quit. When tried to reopen it told me the trial was over. Fair enough I buy the full version, but is there anyway to recover the work I was doing previously? Where abouts would the autosaved file be held?

 

Thanks

Hi Xenol,

 

Your files will be saved where you chose to save them, even when the trial expires any files you have created are still on your system. Once you have the full version installed just go to File > Open and browse to your file.

 

Hope this helps.

The file in question was never formally saved, I had opened it, worked on it (foolishly) without saving it, then the application froze and had to be quit. Normally, when you reopen the software, it gives you the option to open recovery files, but obviously I couldn't reopen the application to get to that step.

Thanks Lee, I did the following and managed to partially recover the file:

Went to Library>Containers>com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner.trial>data>library>Application Support>autosave

 

copied the most resent file, and pasted into the corresponding folder for the full version (same as above by remove the.trial from the 3rd step)

 

Because it's an autosave some work has been lost, but It's much better than nothing.
