  1. I have a problem with affinity photo customer beta on windows.

    On monday when the update process was on is way, my pc was shut down by a general power off occurred even in the streets.

    After that i can't install it anymore... Always setup failed, the uninstall process too, then i've tried to remove manually the installation folder and i've used ccleaner to remove the registry entries, but even that way it doesn't work... it still appear on the "installed applications" but i can't remove it because it give me some binaries error. I've tried installing the version that was there before, but setup failed too...

    Any ideas?

  2. @IsabelAracama the problem could be font related too, some corrupted fonts, font cache or even a lot of them installed. I've found if i have more than 1500 fonts installed my system start to become a little bit crazy especially Designer that start to give me some permission error or permission denied everytime i save or export a file, so this is something to keep an eye on it too.

  3. Since we are starting to lift some lockdown rules here in Portugal starting from today May 4, the small shops are now allowed to reopen, i've made some signs in Affinity Designer and i've printed them in stickers.

    I've showed them to my clients in Isometric mockup created in Affinity Designer.

    Hi dcarvalho84,

    Was you getting this on a new document at all, or was it specific to the document that you were trying to export? If it specific, could you attach that document please? How many additional fonts had you installed on your Mac as well? Have you had any more crashes when exporting since?

    Hi Sean

    This was on a new document, created from scratch in 1.7.3, but i've had it too once with a document created on 1.7.2.

    After those 4 or 5 attempts i've had no more crashes since, but i haven't done too much since it was from this morning but i will let you know if i have more.

    I have a good number of fonts installed but i've had a problem on version 1.6 and after that i know that i can't have more than 2500 installed/activated so, for now i have less than 2000.

    For some reason (that's i i've asked you to take a look at the crash) the same way the problem shows up, the problem goes away,  and i've done nothing, only repeating the export procedure ... Looks like those old cars starting engines from the first time in the morning :) Maybe i should have cleared the user defaults? Don't know

  5. I've updated the app to 1.7.3, i'm working on a simple document and when i'm going to export it to pdf the app simply crashes everytime.

    After 4 or 5 attempts to make it work with nothing changed, no more crashes but if you can take a look at the crash report it would be appreciated.

    Maybe something that's my fault? (Don't think so)

    Thank you.

    Sorry - this seems ridiculous complicated for simply spreading objects evenly along a given angle. 

    AD would benefit from a proper interpolation tool like Inkscape has:


    But in AD I´d go a totally different route by using the art-text tool:




    Just to say thank you! Didn't know that trick but it is really helpful. I've just used it and it was much more easier than trial and error with the rotation. Thanks again.

  7. Lot of crashes this morning because i've had the need to export a lot of files from different works. I've had crashes with pdf, png, jpgs and svgs. I've had one of them that the export dialog appear as normal and go through the end and when i've searched for him in the folder it wasn't there and when i've exported to the same folder, crash. I've had crashes saving to a NAS folder but have had saving to the desktop too... That was not occuring in the last .14 beta.

    Hi Garvey Dixon,
    Welcome to Affinity Forums :)
    Does this happen with any file you try to export or just with some specific files? Do you mind attaching one of those that crash on export for us to check please? Also if you could attach the crash report as well it would help (press alt and drag the icon in the crash report window's title to the desktop to create a copy of the crash report). Thank you.

    @MEB I've had some too. Here is a crash report i've saved.

    The saving process is a background process (like in Photoshop). That means, you can continue working on your document, while it is being saved.

    Thanks for your reply! This was just a question. When i save a big document in Affinity Designer i have that bar (like the export one) and maybe i've missed it there.

    The quickest way to accomplish what you want is to create a table with the right numbers of rows and columns but keep it empty except of the first cell.

    And then just copy the text from here for example:


    and paste it to your table. But make sure that you select all the cells from that link, even the invisible ones.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for both of you. I've ended up filling them manually, but @Eugene Tyson method is a nice choice, so i think i will redo them with this method because next year will be really quick to edit them.
