Hi KipV,

I believe this refers to using the command Image ▸ Edit With ▸ Affinity Photo in Apple Photos (on macOS High Sierra) to send the image to Affinity Photo. There was an issue/bug preventing the edits from being saved back to Apple Photos. It should be fixed now.

1.6.7 RC1 Beta problem.

 

Found a problem with High Pass filter. If I apply it by using Filter > Sharpen > Highpass it puts the grey mask over the image as expected but when I try to adjust the layer blend mode the grey mask flashes off very briefly but stays on. This means I can't see what effect the filter has. Applying the filter doesn't change that - the grey mask stays on the image rendering the image useless.

 

When I use the non destructive method with a Live Filter Layer everything works normally.

Any chance you could record a video showing the issue please?

I think it's a bug, I'm creating a macro with a main folder and two subfolders.
if I use the macro all existing layers are copied into both subfolders.
