When accessing the original sets of video tutorials it was possible to download and save them to a hard drive for, in my instance, viewing when internet access is slow, difficult or not possible.

For the new, updated tutorial sets the download option does not seem to be available.. at least I cannot see it.

Is the option to download now ceased or will it return ?

Hello elbingo
Like you I prefer to download tutorials for later viewing off-line. (not everyone has 24/7 internet access!)
Which tutorials specifically are you trying to download and how are you accessing the Tutorials?
On Vimeo the Official Designer tutorials can still be easily found and there is a Download button just below the videos offering different resolution options to download.
However, yes, the Photo tutorials have become a bit problematic now. The list of subject links here on the forums take you to YouTube now. So to get them down from YouTube I use ‘MacX YouTube Downloader’ (other apps are available)
Before that list of individual tutorial links there is another link that takes you to the Affinity website where they can also be found and watched but as you say “sans” download option!
I preferred it when they were all on Vimeo.

Thank you Mark, I have previously accessed and downloaded the Vimeo tutorials from a Windows desktop ( Affinity Photo ), our broadband service is pretty poor and having access from an internal hard drive has been very helpful.

I have most of the original tutorials downloaded, so it will be the newer or updated tutorials which I was hoping to be able to add to the originals.

It is very useful to be able to quickly skip to and fro between tutorial and AP to practice the techniques demonstrated, not always practical though when the broadband service is playing up.... which is pretty often.

Fingers crossed the option to download the tutorials might, at some point, be available.

I encounter the same problems ... the download of tutorials is no longer possible. I'm using the 'Internet Download Manager'. In the past I downloaded most of the tutorials for offline view.
But any newer one (and even the older ones when I try to download them again) ... not possible any longer.
I hope that the Affinity Photo users will be given the possibility to downlaod them very soon. This is my first and indirect complain of a beautifull program.

Of no help to Windows users, but Mac users running the Safari browser can use the 'offline reading' option in Safari's Reading List feature for this, as explained in the Keep a reading list in the Safari on Mac Apple help topic. To do so with the Vimeo videos, I think you have to right-click on the video frame on the page & choose the "Open Frame in New Window" or "Open Frame in New Tab" option.

You are absolutely right. With a right-click and then 'load the frame again' (maybe not correctly translated in English) ... it works.
Many thanks for this great wenk.
