Hello, I just downloaded Affinity today and it came with a free Macro-pak which I also downloaded.  When I follow the instructions to import the files it says no files found although I can see the files when I search my files through windows, I am pointing to the correct folder but it just does not seem to be able to see them, can someone help me?

Welcome to the Serif Affinity forums 

The instructions you mention say to import the macros into the library panel (a single macro can be imported into the macro panel but a collection of macros is imported via the libraries panel) 

Are you perhaps using the wrong panel?

@SharonGB

What is the name of the macro file you are trying to import, including the extension

Hi Carl123;

the names of the files are below and the file types are all AF MACROS File

distortions.afmacros

image Styles.afmaros

Light Leaks.afmacros

 

They are all in a compressed (zipped) file in my downloads folder call Macro-pack, I can see them when I browse through windows but, when I attempt to open them in the library it say no match - it seems like Affinity can't see them because they are in this other folder or something - I am not really sure.....thanks for any help you can give me :)

You should try unzipping them, then import the unzipped files into affinity via the library panel

Try right clicking the zipped file and see if you get an option to unzip it

Or double click it to see what options you get, if any

Also what version of Windows do you have?

I got it, actually all i had to do was move them out of that folder directly into thedownloads folder as individual files and yippee Affinity could see them - thanks so much for your help - I would not have thought of doing that without your input :)
