I've just downloaded the new version of Affinity Publisher. So it would be version 1.7.1. I did not have access to beta prior. This is my first experience with the software. Since I opened it up, I've been having crash issues. Can barely get through adding images to one page and the spinning/not responding starts. Sometimes if I wait a while it works it's way out of it and sometimes not. I've been working for over an hour and have only gotten through page 3 of my document. I've been searching for solutions. Here's what I've tried so far.
1. Downloaded High-Logic and uninstalled a few hundred fonts that I wasn't using.
2. Checked the appdata folder for crash reports. Those folders are all empty
3. Held down the CTRL key when I started up Publisher and checked all boxes/ set it all back to defaults. The issue persists.
As I've been typing this message, Publisher finally came out of it's spin, but I'm not going to get very far at this pace.
Also, for some possibly further useful information, I had this problem sporadically with Designer and since that latest update, all those issues seem to have disappeared. I'm not sure if this is something going on with my PC or ? But I did see a forum thread somewhere that suggested this is not normal for Publisher and it should not be running this way. Any ideas or treasure trails you all can send me down to try and get this handled would be most appreciated. I was so excited to use this program and cut my time in half or more, but so far it's taking me more than twice as long to get anything done. Help?
