syncronize all program settings , brushes , workspaces

Recommended Posts

Hi all . 

I have just moved across from adobe (photoshop and illustrator ) and loving this great software.

I have both affinity apps on 3 computers (all windows 10) 1 of them is at a different location .

What I am wanting to do is share my app settings , brushes , keyboard shortcuts (everything really)

with all computers without having to manually export from each panel and then import on the other machines respectively.

Is there anyway to do this with a cloud utility ( like Wacom has) or onedrive  . or even a way to customize directories that affinity

uses for all of the settings . I would love to hear how others approach this .

Hi @floyd,


Welcome to the forums. 


Affinity is not a cloud service, so synchronisation between devices would be a manual process, rather than an automated one. Any settings/preferences are locally stored.

Under <your user folder>\AppData\Roaming\Affinity\Photo there's a folder called "1.0" - it seems to contain all the settings you'd need as various .xml files.

Thanks very much guys , I will try out your recommendations. it would be really great if the program settings 

were synced(or given the option too ) with a Microsoft account. or if not that a single click "backup settings" within affinity 

itself .Thanks again for your help. Affinity rocks!
