Lost random Brushcategories and Swatches... bug ?

Recommended Posts


somehow in between i just lost somehow all of my brushpresets, and most of my swatches but those of pantone..    This also happened somehow on another computer..

We use at the moment Affinity Photo


This looks like a bug, cant say the specific moment when it got lost..  in between the work later on i noticed something had changed, but cant put my finger on any special moment..


so how can i avoid this, and how can i get my palettes and brushes back ?

had those missing too, its probably related to this bug report;

my solution to revert it was to go into the task manager, close the exiftool.exe  and to restart Affinity Photo.
Hopefully it helps you.

Can you write, which personas or functions you used, which caused it on your devices?
