Reset Icons to default shape in Styles Panel


Recommended Posts

Recently I received some vector art  files from a friend, including his  Assets, and Styles FILES. After viewing them in Affinity Designer, I noticed that the standard icons in the Styles panel had been customised into a cat shape, rather than the COG shape that is standard in my version of Affinity, version 1.6.4. I have tried holding down CRTL while loading, and then selecting the reset options in the dialog, and that did not work. Has anyone had a similar issue and resolved it. If so, can you run me through the steps to fix it.

The steps to fix it are as follows:

1. Wait until Saturday the 14th. xD

2. Restart the app.

 

(The cat shape in the styles panel is an "Easter Egg" that will appear every Friday the 13th.)

Be prepared to do the same again in three months’ time!

Thank you for the prompt response, RC-R and Alfred. So essentially it's just a bit of fun the programmers put in, and all users will experience the altered icons?.  It really obscures some the Origami styles I use, and I was unaware of the feature. I wonder if I could have that feature removed! I deleted some of the imported styles my friend sent me, and re-installed the program, and lost a fair bit of time trying to work out why the panel changed. I guess that could be an issue in a commercial situation. A bit of warning or a message would have been great. So now hopefully there won't be any more surprises. Thanks once again.
