Can't Open .afdesign file in AP

Recommended Posts


I have both apps updated (AD: 1.5.4) and (AP: 1.4.3)

and yet I got this error when attempting to open an AD file in AP,

"Failed to open file

[path of file]

The file version is not supported by this version of Affinity"

iMac 5K Late 2014, running OS Sierra 10.12.1


Furthermore I can't seem to see an option in AD's menus to 'open in AP' - has this function been removed between the two apps?


Apologies if this has been posted elsewhere or if I have posted in the incorrect forum category.


Gratitude in advance for your time!

Oops! Sorry! Thanks MEB :) 

I did wonder about that however, I thought perhaps it would be the other way around because AP has the 'optimised for OS Sierra' update and AD has been getting different updates, not mentioning OS Sierra (unless I am mistaken)

I didn't know that version 1.5 meant the same compatibility level for each app.


Again, apologies and thank you for your very fast response!
