MACRO FILE NAMING ISSUES - Windows 10. A.P. v1.5.1.54

Recommended Posts

Affinity Photo v Windows 10.1


Macros are saved as *.afmacro files. But Macro Library only recognises *afmacros files. So a saved macro is not visible to Library - import macros. In fact, an *afmacro file is entirely invisible to A.P..


Adding the missing final "s" to the file name does not cure the problem as Affinity Photo then declares the renamed *macros file as having an "Unexpected Macros Format".


A macro can be saved but not used again.


I have 770 images files in need of a macro-driven batch job. Please tell me I don't have to do it manually, 770 times.

Hi Barney46,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

To add a macro to the Library, click the third icon (Add To Library) counting from the right on the top right of the Macro panel.

The second button counting from right is to export a .macro (without "s") file which you can only open using the Import icon in the same panel (first icon counting from right).
