Hi, I'm switching from Adobe products to Affinity. What is the possibility of being able to preview afphoto files & afdesign files?
Great product. I hope you continue your support of it for the Mac.

    Hi George,

    PIxa don't come with support for affinity design files and I'm afraid is not possible to preview af* files.

    At the moment we are not sure Pixa will support next version of MacOS, the project failed to generate a steady income years ago and we have less and less time to keep it going. We are open to open sourcing the project I don't know someone will keep it updated.

    That too bad. It's a great app.

    The finder will preview them. I'll be using that instead if Pixa goes away. Not what I want to do, but what else is there.

    This is a shame to hear, both about the lack of support and that Pixa may be dying. I would have thought that Pixa’s inclusion in Setapp’s offerings would have helped enough to keep it going.
