I have an issue with saving a copy of a file from the iPad version to be edited on the Mac version of Affinity Photo.  From the iPad version I use "Save A Copy" and then click save; it does not seem to matter if I select "Save history".  I then save it to a location on my iCloud Drive.


When I try to open it on my Mac I have the following error message, "Failed to open document, The file includes features from a later versions of Affinity. (See Attachment)


Does anyone have any suggestions on what I might try?


My iPad is a:

iPad Pro 10.5-inch 2017

OS - iOS 11

Running Affinity Photo version 1.6.4


My Mac is a:

MacBook Pro Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013

2.4GHz Intel Core i7 w/8GB Ram

OS - 10.12.6

Running Affinity Photo version 1.5.2


Thank you!

Hi dmccor1,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

Affinity Photo for iPad uses is on version 1.6 and uses a more advanced version of our native file format (while the desktop version in on v1.5). If you downoad and install the latest Affinity Photo Beta for Mac (1.6) from here you should be able to open files created in the iPad version. Alternatively just wait for the next desktop update (no eta yet).
