I tried your suggestion of undocking the Character panel and vigorously started selecting text, switching text frames in between clicking. After 3 minutes, still no crash so I believe you're on the right track.
I docked the Character panel again and tried Ctrl selecting text again. No crash.
Closed the file. Opened it again, kept the Character panel docked and clicked away on the text. No crash.
Closed the file. Opened it again, turned the Character panel off. Ctrl clicked text. No crash.
So to me, it seems undocking the panel did something to make the bug go away. Or it was just a coincidence ofcourse. In any case, good luck. And if you need more info I'll be glad to help out.
While not a resource, per se, it has many photos, graphics and calligraphy sets that pop up weekly. It's in my newsfeed and I'm very rarely disappointed in abduzeedo's content. Sometimes there's nothing better than to take five and gawk at some pretty pictures. :)

Hi guys! I've been working on this template file to create social media branding material for my clients.
I've managed to create a single file with multiple artboards (each one with it's export presets) ready for use.
You are welcome to delete the ones that you will not use (so you don't generate empty files on export).
It also includes flat icons from each platform just in case you might need them.
It's updated for 2017 according to this data from Social Sprout.
Hope you find it as useful as me.
Leave a comment if you like/use it. If you are going to post it anywhere else, please add the proper credits
I have made 10 free tone mapping presets. I have not seen any tone mapping presets for affinity photo so I made some for anybody who might want them. Of course they will not all work with every photo like all presets but I hope someone finds them useful : ) To upload them just click on the zip. file, then in the tone mapping persona on the presets menu; click "Import Presets", Enjoy!

Adobe is giving away 1000 Brushes by renowed artist Kyle T. Webster, in ABR format. If anyone is interested (they don't behave exactly the same, tested on Photoshop Elements 10), here is the link for the download page:
P. S.: I hope there are no legal problems with this.
[UPDATE] I copy here my answer about Licensing for these brushes:
Hi I just want to share some icon assets i made using free icons. Included in this pack. All icons are searchable.

Ionic Icons: https://github.com/driftyco/ionicons
Material Design Icons: https://materialdesignicons.com
Material Icons: https://github.com/google/material-design-icons

Fixed wrong material icons symbols;
Added Entypo+, Icomoon and Typicons;
Updated Material Design Icons;
So, I fell in love with Affinity after about an hour of playing with it. I bought it and started bringing my favorite assets over from Photoshop and Illustrator, including some styles I have been using for years on my web projects. I thought perhaps others could use them too, so here they are with a bonus set of sticker styles.
Enjoy if they're of interest to you.
UPDATE: New version 2.0! This time the gradients and strokes are tool editable. No more trips to the Effects Panel. This gives better and easier control of the styles.
BONUS: By request, 4 atmosphere styles. Included is the AD file with all styles applied for you to play with. Will likely only open in the latest beta. Sorry.
BONUS: Dream Metals styles! Aluminum, Gold, and Copper.
