    This doesn’t work. I get an error when trying to open it. Says that it crashed unexpectedly, and I have followed all the instructions to fix it, such as allowing programs to be opened from anywhere and also running the GateKeeper

    Same here, followed the instructions but the app crashes at startup. Ran the Gatekeeper and still no luck.

    Affinity Designer works perfectly on Catalina 10.15.3 Hackintosh. Affinity Photo however, was shown as damaged and sent directly to the Trash bin
