So, I try to import a macro in my program and this window appears but I don't even know where this file is located or if it even exists? I would like to copy them in this file so they could be linked anywhere on my mac or my iPad in a near future. To specify, I think it requires to copy my macros into this unknown file to be able to import them at all.

Anything shown in the sidebar in the iCloud section is a folder (not a file) in your iCloud Drive library. For convenience, you may want to set this cloud-based drive to always appear on the sidebar in Finder, Open, & Save dialogs, which you can do in Finder preferences:

Alternately, you can click on the "Affinity Designer – iCloud" item in the title bar (to the left of the search field) to open the enclosing iCloud Drive library & navigate to any other folder in it.

Note that to import a single macro (with the .afmacro file extension) into Affinity Photo, you must do so from the import item in the Macro studio panel, while you use the "Import Macros" item from the popup 'burger' menu in the Library studio panel to import a file with the ".afmacros" extension.

Affinity Photo 1.7.2, Affinity Designer 1.7.2, Affinity Publisher 1.7.2; macOS High Sierra 10.13.6 iMac (27-inch, Late 2012); 2.9GHz i5 CPU; NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660M; 8GB RAM
