  1. Just because I had this export error with gradients with too many points in it, maybe a test might be good to simplify a gradient if possible, currently it won't catch it:
  2. Thanks for the update, good to know it was in the pdf already. I cant tell what wrote the original PDF, it's not from me.
  3. But if you import the PDF I uploaded in Designer and try to export it again as PDF, it still fails, right? I just did it again, cut the PDF to have only this page with PDF24 (just assemble) and imported the result in Designer and an error occurs when trying to export as PDF. As it shows the same problem with the gradient?
  4. The problem is, that I cannot distribute the document. I tried to split the page with pdf24 creator, but I saw it changes already the header (PDF 1.6 to PDF 1.7), I don't know if that would be of any help as it changes the original document a bit, even if I used "just assemble" without any change of quality? I uploaded it to the dropbox.
  5. It came from a PDF that I opened in Affinity and tried to export it again and it failed. It would also be good to know at what page it fails if that would be possible, because I then started to manually define ranges to export to get close to the page were it might fail to nail down the exact page. Then I selected some elements and flattened them, to identify the single item later.
  6. I have a Rect with a nested curve that causes a PDF to fail to be exported. Can I get a private Dropbox link to upload an example designer 1.73 document? (Also failing for Publisher Thanks
  7. This is the font: https://befonts.com/manhattan-darling-typeface-bonus.html The download link on the bottom of the page contains the otf: gfxfile.com/6Am/Manhattan_Darling.rar
  8. I have a reproducible freeze with the TextOnPath feature for a special Font. The Path was created like this: Artistic Text Tool Font: Manhatten Darling type only one letter: g convert to curve use Artistic Text Tool to use the path to write Text on it Type in multiple random characters --> Freeze The Path created from that special Fonts "g" is not good, but maybe it could avoid to freeze. File to reproduce attached. TextOnPath.afdesign
  9. Glad it's working for you again!
  10. Or some options for designer to avoid usage of grapchics adapter: Change in Options --> Performance the Renderer to WARP Run with additional parameter: --no-hw-ui example: designer.exe --no-hw-ui
  11. Other steps take some time: Best option would be: If any spare ssd / hdd availabe, quick install a fresh windows 10 1803/1809 on a new disk if available or internet speed is fast enough Or get another computer from someone / or install Virtual Machine Windows Image / system file check sfc / scannow Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /ScanHealth Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /CheckHealth Dism /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth (https://howtofixwindows.com/run-dism-command-windows-10/) Just some additional ideas: check your disks for problems check your date and time remove any overclocking
  12. Any chance to use another computer or OS (Windows?) Installation? I think a simple reboot was already a try?
  13. Hi, what is the error message / Crashreport available? Any example document that you can share? I think that would help to speed things up. Exact Version of your Affinity Program (I expect you use the release version, so trying with the beta could be an option (Make Backups of your documents before using in Betas):
