Importing .ABR Brushes Error

Recommended Posts

Just needed to reset my Brush library, now I can't import anything.

Any sort of time frame on the solution?

Deleted 1.7.2 and downloaded 1.7.0 and started from scratch.

Hi Anners,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
Yes, this is a known issue that's being looked at as @markbowen pointed out.

HI 

Any idea on a time frame to get this sorted. Or, other than downloading a previous version is there another way of loading brushes .. i.e. pasting new bushes into a folder etc???

Please advise

Cheers,

John

Hi johno58jj,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
This is still being looked into, there's no eta for a fix, sorry. Unfortunately, there's no other way to load/import new brushes.

Hi davehiill,
Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
If you bought Affinity Photo from our Store (Affinity Store) you can download previous versions from here. If you have bought through the Mac App Store you can only revert back to a previous version if you have made a backup.

Hi all,
This should be fixed in the upcoming Beta and retail releases.

Oh thank you for the update. Was just trying to figure it out on my iPad. 
 

Any eta for the release and beta builds? I have both. (On iPad)

I found two worarounds for the time being:

  • Either downgrade to a previous version like 1.7.0 and wait for the issue being fixed in a future version.
  • Or convert the brushes to PNGs and as described here, and import them using ""Brush Panel >> Menu >> New Intensity Brush". Downside to this method is that you are losing all the brush settings, also you have to import every brush on its own, as there is no batch import. I created a feature request for a batch import here.

I've had Affinity Photo on Mac for almost 2 years now and this problem is just now occurring. It's definitely troubling and bothersome because it's slowing down workflow for projects. I sure hope this is HIGH PRIORITY.
