[By Design] Cannot Record Export Item

Recommended Posts

Hello - I need help.  

I am new to Affinity; I am using a 2015 MacBook Pro.  I have watched a few tutorials; today I tried to edit a jpeg; removed some blemishes,  didcropping, and added elected the pre-canned lighten up option. 

When I went to export the file to JPEG; I get a message "Macro Recorder - cannot export item". 

I am stuck - I feel like I am lost in a big city in a foreign country.   

I don't know my way around Affinity.  I hope I am making a rookie mistake but it seems Affinity is buggy.

I have enclosed a screen grab with the arrow message.

Hi @Nevada,

Welcome to the forums. 

When you record macros, you have limited functionality - Export is one of the limitations. Save your macro before you export. When you need to use it, just apply the macro and perform a manual export.
