Icon previews for iCloud stored files

Recommended Posts

This would also apply to Affinity Photo. Also, it may not be possible.

At some point last year I decided I wanted to have all of my files on iCloud so changed the default save location to iCloud for both Designer and Photo. I recently had to trouble shoot some iCloud weirdness and had to log out of my account. Of course, doing that meant that all of my files were not just on iCloud, nothing stored locally. Yesterday I had a client request a file that he’d lost and I went digging. I’d missed the fact that Affinity files stored iCloud to not generate previews. This also applies to Affinity apps on the Mac. Is it possible for Affinity to generate such previews locally? Sure would come in handy for finding files that might not have been named or in some cases might have been named but just might have multiple versions. Whatever the case, would be useful.
