I installed AfD on my new machine by copying it to a pen drive from the Applications folder on my old Mac, then from the pen drive to the applications folder on the new one. It worked fine for a while then went haywire. I was rather naughty but I was in a hurry!  How can I uninstall it and reinstall it the correct way?

Shouldn't you always be able to (re)download from the Apple App store, as far as you have once bought the app? - Look under the bought apps category!

Thanks v_kyr, I'll have another go in the morning, but the problem is Apple messing about and refusing to recognise me and giving me instructions in some bloody foreign language!

It should be as simple as opening the Mac App Store app from the Apple menu (4th item down, called "App Store..."), clicking on the "Purchased" icon at the top of the window & then signing in with the Apple ID & password you used when you bought the Affinity app(s).

If you are seeing everything in a foreign language, scroll to the bottom of the MAS window & click on the round country icon on the right. Choose your country from the list on the page that opens & try again.

May they are using a VPN and using a server from a foreign country? websites will show the page in the country it thinks you are from. :ph34r:
