Cannot open afdesign files from Affinity Designer ⌘+o (command+o)

Recommended Posts



Sometimes when I am trying to open afdesign files through the app the files are disabled or greyed out.

I can search through finder and drag and drop the file into the app or I can search through finder and select open in Affinity Designer and it opens fine. However, some files when I try to open them from the app menu they are displayed as disabled and I cannot open them.

Hey Jeremy,


That's odd, I haven't seen this happen before. Any chance you can do a screencast and upload it so we can see?


What OS X are you using? Not that it should matter, but does this happen in all the different persona's?
