Very pleased to be able to manage assets within AD and am spending a great deal of time creating various libraries for our company  :)


I therefore wish to ensure that the growing asset library is both backed up frequently and shared as seamlessly as possible with my colleagues.


I know that I can export assets to a file, but I would like to write scripts to backup and share with my colleagues whenever I make a change to the library of assets.


Could you therefore let me know where are the assets are actually stored on a mac, so that I can target this directly rather than requiring to export each time I make a change and manually redistribute?


Is it possible to configure one (or more) locations to store assets?


Thanks for your help, regards,

Hi tim.jones

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

The assets file is located here:

/Users/{your username}/Library/Containers/com.seriflabs.affinitydesigner/Data/Library/Application Support/user/assets.propcol

Currently it's not possible to set other or multiple locations to store assets.

I rename the new asset collection and then export it to a folder I created on my hard disk drive, I've done this for a few collections now - serves two purposes, a backup and I can move it to a different computer. A very useful facility.
