  1. Hi A_B_C., Sorry I missed your post - yes, it is specifically the action of converting an 'embedded document' (pdf, psd, svg, affinity documents) from embedded to linked that creates a document that cannot be re-opened. As it happens, conversion between embedded and linked is fine for placed raster data (jpeg, png etc). Hopefully we should have a fix soon. In the meantime, as always, but especially if using 330, please keep regular backups.
  2. Thank you for taking the time to post about your experience. The book looks great.
  3. Thanks, I can reproduce this if replacing an embedded document, e.g. PDF, but not an image such as jpeg etc. I have logged it.
  4. Hi, We have issued a 330 update to fix the two issues I mentioned above.
  5. Hi, we've done a 330 update which should fix this Copy / Paste issue.
  6. Hi thomaso, Thanks for your reports. - The PDF is converted to an embedded affinity document and the images inside it are in turn embedded with hi-res previews which is why the document becomes large. - I have reproduced and logged the issue for Copy / Paste of a placed PDF. This Is new in Build 326.
  7. Hi ivbera, thank you for your post. We can confirm two of the issues you have raised: - When performing Replace Document on a placed PDF the resource type is switched to TIF. This is obviously wrong. - Making an embedded resource linked can delete the original resource file.The original resource file is deleted in preparation for overwriting of the embedded data. However this happens even if you choose different location for the embedded data in which case there would be no need to overwrite the original. Unfortunately we have not yet reproduced the issue you experienced where the hosting afpub file cannot be written to / saved. Is there any chance you could supply the file you have been working with in case this sheds any light on this issue?
  8. Hi ConnectCreative, Should be working again with today's update.
  9. Due to an issue discovered with the management of placed documents e.g here, here and the fact that document corruption can occur, we have chosen to remove the download links to Build 330. We will post another update to rectify this issue as soon as possible. If you have already downloaded 330 you may wish to consider reverting to Build 312, but be aware that due to new functionality in the later build, documents saved in 330 may not load in 312. Thank you for helping us find this issue. --- Please note Build 330 fixes the following issues in Build 326. Build 326 has been withdrawn and we encourage you to update if you are using it. - Converting an Embedded resource to Linked could delete the original resource - Replacing Image on a placed PDF could leave Resource Manager in an inconsistent state - Crash copying and pasting embedded document resources Thank you for reporting these.

  11. Thanks, we’ll get it right next time!
  12. Hi VolkerMB, The fix was made across all Applications, so as soon as you get a Designer update it should be fixed there too.
  13. Hi fde101, Thanks for your original post about lost functionality with Master Page Picture Frames. It has been logged, and we should have a fix in the next update.
  14. Hi Seadog, Re: __text_pages_1-36_(original).afpub I'm afraid I can't recover anything from this file, either the internal tables are corrupt or the file is missing a significant amount of data from the end. I'll pass a link to this thread to one of my colleagues who is very knowledgeable about our internal file structure, but I am expecting him to come to the same conclusions as me.
  15. This build has been superseded by Build 312 and this thread is now locked.
