  1. Cristian - to get that, all you need to do is check the 'Use Fill' option on the context toolbar. Still hoping that auto-close is on the roadmap for 1.7…
  2. Did you find out what the exact issue was that caused the crash? A bug, or something I'd done that caused a performance problem? As mentioned above, I found that it was related to removing pages 3 and 5. In the end I was able to drag reorder these to the end of the document and then delete them without causing a crash. I could then complete it and get it off to print.
  3. I've methodically done an edit, then saved, closed and reopened to see what causes the crash. I've narrowed it down to when I delete two right hand pages from the document. For some reason, introducing that edit causes Publisher to crash
  4. I've managed to get a one hour earlier version from Dropbox which didn't crash Publisher. I wondered if the embedded-rather-than-linked images were causing it, so made the large images linked instead. However, after saving it and closing it, it now causes Publisher to crash again.
  5. Publisher now consistently crashes just after launch, here's an example from the console log: Jul 24 14:50:46 HicksBook-Pro com.apple.xpc.launchd[1] (com.seriflabs.affinitypublisher.16284[566]): Service exited due to SIGSEGV | sent by exc handler[566] Typically, I have an urgent deadline this afternoon, and need this to work Affinity Publisher_2019-07-24-144400_HicksBook-Pro.crash Affinity Publisher_2019-07-24-145458_HicksBook-Pro.crash Affinity Publisher_2019-07-24-145459_HicksBook-Pro.crash
  6. I have a 3x2.5 meter AD document for a display stand. It's CMYK and has a filesize of 176mb. The content is text, a few simple vector icons and a large (174mb) embedded .afphoto document. The embedded photo has a mask, and two adjustment layers (black and white, gradient map). As I try and export to PDF with crop marks it never gets beyond roughly 10%, no matter how long I leave it. The app hasn't crashed, and I cancel the export just fine. It works if I remove the embedded .afphoto image, but I've tried rasterising that layer and still get the issue. I've even tried opening the .afdesign file in Publisher, and exporting from there, but get the same result. I urgently need to export this PDF, does anyone have any ideas?
  7. Thanks Dan! I've since closed and reopened the file, and noticed that history is blank. Is there something I need to do to ensure the history is saved? It's not a feature I've used really.
  8. A very odd thing that I'm trying to get to the bottom of: I have a document with about 70 icons and the artboards (seemingly) keep shifting by themselves. Obviously with icons, alignment to the pixel grid is everything, so I spend a long time making sure it's spot on. As I'm working on the document, the X or Y position shifts to being 0.3 off. Regularly. This is really frustrating as it means I have to try manually select loads of artboards (not easy in itself) and reset their position. Otherwise the artwork in the artboard is no longer aligned to pixels and, consequently, blurred. I can't think why this is happening - I haven't selected all these artboards at any point. Has anyone else come across this?
  9. There's probably a few workarounds, but I wondered if the option was there and I'd just missed it
  10. As I'm working on a document with a lot of artboards (a large icon set with several sizes per icon), I was wondering if it was possible to have a visible grid behind all the artboards? Sometimes this is visible if you've selected an object not on an artboard, but once an artboard has been selected, it obviously changes to show the grid only within that artboard. Is there a setting somewhere that I need to check? It would make it easier to keep a neat and tidy document. At the moment it seems like the only way is to not use artboards, but labouriously setup slice areas on one large document.
  11. I can export slices to iCloud Drive without any problems, but exporting to Dropbox just doesn't happen. However, I can save and open files from Dropbox, as well as Save a copy'. Is it certain that this is a Dropbox bug, and not an issue with AD?
  12. Apologies, I've got the bottom of it - I'd been working off an imported PDF that had a high DPI and set to use points. All aligned now! (Couldn't see how to delete the post!)
