Will StudioLink be able to update the original file in upcoming 1.7.2?

Recommended Posts

As per the thread below, many are concerned that even in the latest Affinity betas any changes made in APub via SL to a linked file, the changes made within SL are not saved to the original APh or AD file, nor is the newly modified graphic changed to an embedded file. Just curious when/if this will be addressed so that we can really start to use this potentially great feature. I was hoping to see this in 1.7.2 but in testing today, still not working.

This is not really related to StudioLink, it is a function of how linked "embedded documents" work in the Affinity applications right now.

Currently, embedded documents which are "linked" are actually still embedded, but the applications watch for changes to the external file and offer the ability to update the embedded copy when there are external changes.

When you try to modify the "linked" document within the application, it updates the internal copy but not the original file.

I believe the plan is to have these documents more correctly linked later on, similar to the way that linked images work, so that there won't be a separate copy of them embedded into the main document any longer.  My guess is that this issue would be addressed as part of that effort...  but I suppose we will find out when it happens.
