Having issues importing .ase palette files into Procreate?

First the drag and drop method, this action seems to do nothing.

Second from the palette menu ‘New from files’. The .ase file shows as grayed out.

Turns out having the Affinity Designer app also installed causes conflicts with files browser and changes which app can open which file types.

Removing the Affinity Designer app fixes the issue, plus changes the icon from all white to one with the Procreate logo in it.

As a workaround, instead of removing the Affinity Designer app (or really any app the might be causing the issue), use the share menu in the files app. Select the .ase file and click share, then click Procreate. It will open the palette file anyways. 👍
