Affinity Designer: Export presets lost - how to restore?

Recommended Posts

Suddenly, all my custom export presets that I had defined have disappeared! (I remember recently changed the UI language from German to English and v.v., and I had one system crash - both should not cause this, but I could have??)


I am sure they should be included in my backup - which file do I need to restore from Time Machine to get them back?


Taking a quick look, I did not find aything suitable named SerifLabs or Affinity in my Library folder...

Hi p10n,


Do you know if you updated Designer to 1.5.2 yesterday, the reason I ask is we found an issue with the update. If the update was installed and the app opened all presets where deleted. Some users have reported using Time Machine to revert back before the update has resolved the issue. We've now resolved the issue in a new update 1.5.3.


See this post for some more information.

Thank you, Lee,

this was exactly it!

I just restored the ~/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner folder from a week earlier, and all is back :-)

Thank you!
