    [Fixed] Export to PDF crash

    Still managed to create a crash if I used Advanced Meta paste from standard Windows Clipboard in latest beta 384 - could tell it was going to happen because of 0 kb image.tif so know how to avoid by using Meta data.

    [Fixed] Export to PDF crash

    I noticed that quite a few things were worked on for today's beta involving export to PDF, including line height. Just about to try again to break something, but drinking my coffee after my gym session!

    [Fixed] Export to PDF crash

    Think I have found the source of the problem, neither Affinity nor Excel!! I had been using a Clipboard and if I closed it, and used the standard windows one no problem - I did it in the last Beta - I see there is new one - but wanted to try it as it was. So it may be a help to ask if people crash had been doing the same (using an alternative clipboard, that is). I am now pleased to know I have resolved something so that I do not have the problem again. May have a word with the Clipboard coder if I get the time but more interested in getting geared for the release next week and use in earnest. Just about to upgrade and will check it again with the non Windows Clipboard and with the Windows one once installed. Unless I make a useful finding I will not report anymore. Thanks for following up. John

    [Fixed] Export to PDF crash

    I wondered if you would be interested. This is the Advanced Meta file one - Just try exporting to see the crash. Look at Resources and you will see the 4 '0' image.tif. I think they show up as green dots if anything. It is the table on the 2nd page. Copied as I say from Excel. Very interested to hear any results. I know I can do a lot more than I have in the file but this is the first time I was trying for real and I rely on others for content. I am looking forward to using it on the final release. I have been using Serif stuff for years and years and... John

  9. I still managed to encounter a problem today in the Publisher. I eventually tracked it down to 4 '0' sized image.tif on a page which came in with copying a table from Excel. The thread on export to PDF crashing gave me the clue to look at Resources, and that is where I saw them, and then had to work out how to copy a formatted table without them appearing. This turned out to be the difference between 'Advanced Metafile' Pasting which crashes, and 'Metafile' Pasting which did not. Hope that save someone else the time and gives clues to the coders as to how to avoid it.

    Install failed

    Uninstalled with Revo Uninstaller and removed everything and installed with no problems. Not sure what was causing the issue.

    Setup failed

    As reported in another thread a few minutes ago I have the same problem - no problem with Designer - I will wait with interest to see what happens as am reluctant to uninstall for now.

    Install failed

    Failed with Adminstrator as I expected.

    Install failed

    I have the same problem as described with Affinity Photo, I had updated Designer the same day with no problems. I have tried 3 times now and even tried going back to one update install I had missed, but the same result of failed. The file size for the download on the screen on the website is larger than the download indicated size when actually downloading - has something been mised out? I will try Administrator suggestion. If that does not work should I completely uninstall? which has implications for the addons - which I would also have to re-install ;-(
