Hello:

So, I duplicate some files in the finder and renamed them. If Affinity Designer is open and I double click on the duplicated files, I try to Command-O to open them, or I try through File/Open, I get the following error message "Failed to open file...This file could not be opened because permission was denied." If I quit AD and then try the same thing, they open fine.

Thanks,

Peter

Thanks for the video. Tried myself using the exact same methods and it is still behaving for me. Do you tend to have lots of fonts installed? Mac App Store apps are sandboxed and having a lot of fonts can interfere with this causing permission denied issues

Hello Sean:

That could be it. I tried it on a more stripped down machine and didn't run into the same issues.

It's an annoying issue as it makes me quit and reopen a number of times while working on a project. And, I don't recall it occurring with InDesign, Quark, or Illustrator. But, I'll try to narrow down the number of fonts I have open for the time being.

Thanks,

None of those applications would have been purchased through the Mac App Store and therefore won't have these annoying file lock restrictions that Apple impose on sandboxed apps.

Glad that helps you (if only somewhat)!
