Affinity Photo - Can't develop because can't see all of the screen

Recommended Posts

When I open the image for developing using open with Affinity Photo i can see all of the adjustments on the panel but no ability to commit the changes and move to the main programme.


I have tried


Toggle views

Reset Studio

Hide Studio

Restarting Mac


If i simply open affinity and then drag the NEF file in it will skip the develop window and won't let me go back to it. 


Macbook Pro on Sierra 10.12.6 (16G29)

Affinity Photo 1.4.3


Any ideas greatly welcomed.

In the View menu, make sure "Show Context Toolbar" is checked. There is a blue "Develop" button on it that does what you want.


By the way, if you are still using version 1.4.3, you should probably upgrade to the current 1.5.2 version.
