Hello, 

I just bought my first brush pack in the Affinity store. I could easily install them in Affinity Designer, but it doesn't work in Affinity photo (desktop for Windows). When i import them, i have a message saying they've been added (as i did this multiple times, it say the name is *brush pack 2, brush pack 3* and so on), but they don't show in my brush panel. 

I tried to create a new category first but it didn't work either. 

I would like to find the location folder on Windows to uninstall all those packs that didn't work and find a way for it to work !

Thanks a lot in advance for your help,

Welcome to the Serif Affinity Forums, @joujou_tdj. :)

We can only use raster brushes, not vector brushes, in Affinity Photo. Unfortunately, we still get a success message when importing vector brushes into APh, even though we can’t use them in the app.

Oh what a deception... i didn't see they weren't compatible with Affinity photo :( 

Any chance they will in the future ? Like a vector-raster conversion or something ?
 

And where should i go to uninstall them, as it seems they've been stored somewhere ?

Thank you very much for your answer, regards

There will be a file in your

%AppData%\Affinity\Photo\1.0\user\

folder, but it contains all of your brushes, so there’s no easy way to get rid of only the useless ones. :(

Edit: Please see Walt’s reply to my post. I stand corrected!

That folder will have a file raster_brushes.propcol with your raster brushes. If you've managed to install (unusable) vector brushes, it will also have a vector_brushes.propcol file. That would be the one to delete.

Oh well.. thanks

I'm trying to use the brushes in Affinity Designer, tried the pixel persona to get an eraser but the brushes are only available in the vector persona :/

I was really hoping to draw with those... it feels so bad cause all the tools are here, they just can't work together !

It's the grave etcher pack

To help you with future purchases, the Serif Store does show that one as only for Designer:

Note that the icons for Designer are in color, but the ones for Photo are grayed out.

You can use the eraser in the Pixel Persona to erase lines you've painted in the Vector Persona. It creates a new mask layer to hide the "erased" part of the stroke, but it is removed visually from the image. I'm not sure there's anything else you could do working in vectors, and I think that would be true even in Photo if it supported vector brushes.
