How to import your own macros into Affinity Photo for iPad

Recommended Posts

I have a custom macro created in Affinity Photo (1.7) for the Mac and want to import this on Affinity iPad (1.7).  What are the correct steps to achieve this?

You need to export it via the macro library so that it becomes a .afmacros file (note the s on the end). The iPad can import .afmacros but cannot import .afmacro Files. 

To import just open the macros studio on iPad and tap the studio menu, the the import macro menu item. You may have to copy the macro (.afmacros) File to icloud in order to import it.

Are you sure it was exported from desktop macro library in .afmacros format. Sorry I don't have desktop version so cannot explain that part in detail.

Try the attached macro by James at Affinity and see if it works.

Hi @DM1. It exports the macro with the extension .afmacro but I rename it to .afmacros.  I will try the JR macro and see how I get on.

That won't work. A .afmacro file has a different format than a .afmacros file. You get a .afmacro file if you export a macro from the Macro studio. You get a .afmacros file when you export from the Library studio.
