Exif Data not loading from raw in certain directories

Recommended Posts


after the update to i noticed affinity is not loading exif data from raw files in certain directories anymore ->

Directories with special characters, here the german ä,ö,ü etc.


Previously installed Version ( 1.5.2) did not show the issue.



D:\aufträge\foo.cr2 does load the raw, but not the exif data: shows N\A in all exif fields.



changing the path to D:\auftraege\foo.cr2 fixes the issue.



Tested on Windows 10, latest update.

Hi karlchen68,

Can you confirm that the problem only occurs when you drag an image, not when you open it from the File menu?


The dragging bug is not fixed in the current beta (, but it will be in the next one.
