Designer afdesign files saved in iCloud Drive on iOS open with Photo on MacOS

Recommended Posts

After saving a Designer file to iCloud Drive on iOS the file is associated with Photo on MacOS
On MacOS both Application folders in iCloud drive show the Photo icon
Command "Open With' used on an .afdesign file in iCloud Drive shows Designer to be the default application
Command "Open" used on an .afdesign file in iCloud Drive opens the file in Photo

What's very strange is that the extended attributes for the file do seem to be set to open with Designer

 

$ xattr -l ~/Library/Mobile\ Documents/6LVTQB9699\~com\~seriflabs\~affinitydesigner/Documents/Untitled.afdesign
