  1. I was saving this to Dropbox directly. I has always worked fine. But to confirm, resetting the options at the start seemed to have cleared the issue. It hasn't been freezing since. Thank you so much NathanC.
  2. This error happens every time. The first two times I try to export I always end up forcibly closing the app. It's really Annoying. I´ll try to reset the options....I´ll loose the settings I've configured but that's ok. Thanks! Specs below.
  3. This is an error that I get EVERY time. I've even created workflows to work around it. Every FIRST run of the program when I try to save with the export persona, the app crashes when opening the save dialog. I've recorded this on video (see attachment). Sometimes it will crash when creating a new folder. affinity-bug.mp4
  4. Thank you so much Walt! That was it. It was the goddamn sandboxing. I guess I´ll have to activate fonts as I go. Thanks heaps for your help mate. B.
  5. Photo and designer are from the App Store, Publisher is from the website. The fonts were installed and activated via FontExplorer®. Do you think that installing and activating a large number of fonts is a problem that can restrict my App store version of those programs?
  6. Im getting this error on every file The file could not be opened because permission was denied. I try to open and I can't open or save any files on my hard drive. I've tried resetting PRAM, VRAM I've tried resetting permissions to the folder (via terminal and using Disk Utility and repairing disk permissions) I've tried modifying the permissions in the accessibility area to enable full disk access. I've checked the file / folder permissions in finder I'm losing my mind here. I don't know what I did to trigger this (except installing a bunch of fonts today). I could use it perfectly a couple of days ago. I'm an advanced OSX user and I've run out of options. Weird thing is that I CANT open them in affinity designer OR photo but I CAN open it on affinity publisher. My setup: Mac Osx Monterey 12.1 on an M1 Pro (MacBook Pro (16-inch, 2021). I have dropbox running which has reported errors on OSX Monterey (maybe is that, but it's weird that only affected affinity products, I can open the same files (jpg or PNG) on photoshop and Illustrator)
  7. I've created this strokes with layer effects to achieve a 3d effect on my design but after using 3 of those the file becomes incredibly sluggish. I´ll include the file so you can test it. Don't worry about the fonts, the problem is on the strokes. Cheers! B. printed-ad-half-page.afdesign
  8. It's worth mentioning that the second artboard has a symbol with the perspective filter applied to it.
  9. Ive created two artboards for a regular set of signage design jobs. The first artboard is the design itself. The second one is a photo of the physical medium with the design on top as a mockup. When I zoom out the render view goes ballistic. If you want to play with the file, it's here: https://www.dropbox.com/s/9rs4rl0q5m5ofx6/zoe-dion-lowercase.afdesign?dl=0
  10. I'm using a xp pen tablet to design in afinitty and im getting this weird behaviours on some sliders. It seems that when I go to the next slider (in the colour panel for example) the cursor is still "holding" the previous slider. Quite annoying to be honest. Just in case I've submitted this bug in the XP pen forums too
  11. I still don't know what causes it. But for some reason the drag function in layers just stops working. I can't seem to be able to rename layer either. It would take me multiple restarts to get it going again. I've solved it by cutting and pasting and using the arrange function but it's really annoying. I'm using a XP pen tablet. But i've tried using the trackpad and it doesn't work either.
  12. I have a wonderful trick for Apple motion (might work for after as well...thing is Motion is almost instantaneous). I do my designs in Affinity designer and then save everything as PSD. Make sure the file is RGB and import in apple motion as layers. The cool thing is that if you modify the PSD in any way...as long as you don't add EXTRA layers...the file with all the animation will be fully editable. Really useful if you do social media graphics that change things like dates.
  13. When pressing tab on the size measures of an artboard, instead of going by type it just cycles to the next value (x position). The expected behaviour would be if I'm on X position, tab would need to take me to Y position. If I'm on W, after pressing tab I would expect to be taken to H. Correct me if I'm wrong, thanks guys.
