  1. Holy hell, thank you. That ended up doing the trick. I kept the MAS open while killing that process and retried the update. Got to about 95% complete and hung there for a bit but eventually finished. I can't express how thankful I am for the help. Buy you a beer sometime!
  2. Partial progress but Affinity Designer won't update. After killing the 'appstoreagent' process, the App Store now showed the "Update" button next to Affinity Designer as opposed to the "Download from cloud" icon but it still just spins, and spins w/ no apparent progress to installing/updating. This is frustrating. I had contacted Apple Support yesterday and they indicated that I probably needed to update to Big Sur. I can't at the moment because I still require the use of my old InDesign CS5 apps and going to Catalina or Big Sur will kill that ability.
  3. I'm having this EXACT issue. Interestingly, Affinity Photo appeared to update to 1.9.1 successfully even though it never fully showed completing before I just quit the App Store. Affinity Designer never would update. The App Store now only shows the "download from cloud" icon but it does nothing. I'll try the suggestions above and report back.
  4. I simply opened the document to begin making some edits. At first I made a bunch of changes, hit CMD+S and Publisher crashed. I then got as simple as (1) open the document, (2) make one text change on page 1, (3) hit CMD+S, (4) crash. As a sidenote, I absolutely love your products over the same three from Adobe. Sure there are a few features here and there that I've come across that are missing for my needs but things I'm sure you'll add in time. Keep up the good work.
  5. I can report I'm having this exact issue this morning with what it appears you're describing above. A text box that I have on my Master page with some placeholder copy and a pinned icon is causing the crash. When I remove the pinned icon from the Master page, the document saves w/o crashing. These are documents I was working on recently w/o issue until the updating to the latest build (1.8.6). However, I was having a similar problem many months ago that I could never figure out so perhaps it was a related problem to this pinned object. At that time I just rebuilt the documents out of frustrati
  6. This just needs to be a menu option like Illustrator – something like Object => Offset Path => <enter value>. So much faster than this method.
  7. These steps crash Affinity Designer. Drag out a text frame using the Frame Text tool. Enter some text or use the Insert Filler Text option from the Text menu Set the properties of this text to be "Justified Left" Double-click the bottom center handle to auto-resize the box to fit the text. AD crashes.
  8. Correct. I'm looking for the trigger along everyone else and appreciate an earlier reply suggesting we save a file along with History and send to the Affinity team. I'm doing my best to notice when it happens and perhaps keeping a log of my history each time it occurs might shed some light for the developers to fix the issue. I'm hoping to help solve this dilemma 'cause it's driving me nuts.
  9. Sorry to be that guy but can we keep this thread to the topic at hand please? I'm following this thread for an answer to the posted question and this morning my Inbox was filled with about 20 non-related responses. Grumpy old man yells at cloud. Thank you.
  10. I'm experiencing the same issue pretty regularly but for the life of me I can't seem to figure out what is triggering it. A restart of the app does fix the problem as others have stated.
  11. Is it possible to assign separate blend modes for an object stroke and fill with Affinity Designer? For instance I'd like to apply a blend mode of Multiply to the black fill of a rectangle but want to leave the white stroke color as normal. I have this same question for opacities as well. I ask because I'm able to do this in Illustrator and use it all the time. If there is another way of approaching this in Designer w/o having to duplicate the object (one for fill and one for stroke), please enlighten. Thanks!
