Are you sure about that? Any version 1.6 Affinity app should be able to open files saved from the same version, or an earlier one, of either Affinity Designer or Affinity Photo.

Could it have anything to do with Windows being at 1.6.5 and Mac still being 1.6.3?  Maybe there was an inadvertent change?  I just created a random file though in Win 10 on 1.6.5 and opened it in 1.6.1 on my Mac without issue though.

Thanks! 

am I sure... well,  would say yes, but you make me doubt. Checked the update in the App Store app. no updates for AFdesigner or AFphoto. When searching for the apps in the store, the displays an open button... clicking the button results in INSTALLING something... it also kind of freezes the app store... let me see to that first. thanks for the hint (Designer is on 1.5.x, photo 1,6,7)
